Abstract: A promotional card of paperboard is provided for incorporating in a package of stubby type bottled products which are disposed in double row transversely paired relation and held in a group by a plastic shroud or plastic shrink wrap, which card has a top panel generally with apertures for receiving capped portions of the bottles and for seating beneath the bottom edges of the cap skirts and snuggly engaging the outermost top portions of the bottles, the card being in the form of a flat foldable or formable blank which is trapped beneath the shroud or wrap and which is cut and scored to fit over a center pair of capped bottles with outer end portions conforming generally to interior face portions of the shroud or wrap and extending a portion of the distance down the outer sides of the bottles and when employed with the shroud terminating adjacent bottom edges of the shroud.
Abstract: The machine comprises a series of egg cracking and contents separating heads carried on bracket plates which are connected to form a continuously traveling chain conveyor advancing in a horizontal path along which there are means for actuating the cracking and separating mechanisms on each head, with the cracking mechanisms being activated at a transfer station so as to receive a group of eggs from a feed conveyor and while advancing to crack and open the shell portions at a dumping area where each egg contents is dropped into the associated, swingably mounted separating mechanism, comprising a yolk cup and an albumen collecting pan, which is disposed beneath the cracking mechanism and which is advanced to a discharge area where the assembly is tilted so as to discharge the yolk and the albumen into separate receptacles, there being means enabling an operator to inspect and manually discharge a whole egg contents into a collecting receptacle or a spoiled egg into another collecting receptacle when the egg yol
Abstract: A promotional card of paperboard is provided for incorporating in a package of stubby type beverage bottles which are disposed in double row transversely paired relation and held in a group by a molded plastic shroud or bonnet having a top panel with apertures for receiving capped portions of the bottles and for seating beneath the bottom edges of the cap skirts and snuggly engaging the outermost top portions of the bottles, the promotional card comprising a flat blank which is trapped beneath the shroud and which is cut and scored to fit over a center pair of capped bottles with outer end portions conforming generally to interior face portions of the shroud and terminating adjacent bottom edges of the shroud.
Abstract: An upwardly opening tray-like carrier carton is disclosed for packaging a plurality of articles having the general form of beverage bottles, which carrier is fabricated from a pair of blanks of foldable sheet material which are cut, scored, folded, and glued up, so as to provide connected panels which form, when set up, a partitioned carton structure comprising a double row of upwardly opening bottle receiving cells disposed on opposite sides of a central bottle separating partition and handle forming panel assembly. The assembly is characterized by an upstanding partition wall extending between the rows of cells on each side of the partition and handle forming assembly which is hinged at its opposite ends to pairs of foldable end wall panels so as to enable the cells on each side of said central partition and handle forming panel assembly to be collapsed, when empty, and to be folded into flattened relation against said partition and handle forming assembly.
Abstract: A method of treating papermaking white water which contains dissolved solids, usually of a biodegradable organic nature. According to the invention, the dissolved organic solids, which are objectionable because they cause process equipment corosion, undesirable product and process odors and water pollution, are treated with ultraviolet light so as to lower their concentration and eliminate these problems. The light treatment causes material of relatively simple chemical structure to polymerize into more complex, less soluble materials which can easily be removed from the system as they become less soluble. The method is applicable to papermaking and other industries process using large quantities of process water. The treatment cell, which preferably operates on clarified white water, may be placed in series with the process white water flow or in parallel therewith, and can be operated as a continuing treatment process or as a intermittent treatment process.
Abstract: A wraparound type carrier package for a group of bottles which are arranged in a double row and in transversely aligned pairs, which package is formed by wrapping about the top, sides, ends and bottom of the bottles, a cut and scored blank of paperboard, or similar foldable sheet material, which blank is divided into wall forming panels with interengaging locking elements in the margins of the end panels and with end closure forming panels hinged to the end edges of sidewall forming panels, the latter being adapted, when the package is formed, to be held in end closing position by downturned narrow hinged panels on the end edges of the top wall forming panel which are provided with latching elements in engagement with the infolded end closure panels.
Abstract: A system for packaging cans or similar articles which is characterized by a wrap-around style blank of paperboard, or other suitable sheet material, which is cut and scored to divide it into wall forming panels adapted to be wrapped about a row of the articles, so as to form an open ended tubular carton, with the blank having hinged terminal end panels in the form of narrow strips which are interleaved and secured so as to cooperate with adjoining panel portions in forming one of the carton walls, the end panels being seated by a hinging movement which draws the panels into tight wrap formation and which engages primary locking tabs on the terminal edge of the one end panel in cooperating locking apertures disposed at the hinge line of the other end panel while hinged secondary locking tabs which are cut from the material adjacent the hinge line of the one end panel are engaged in cooperating locking apertures which are cut in the material of the wall panel to which the other end panel is hingedly connected.
Abstract: A cover or closure arrangement for a product container of the type having a tubular body fabricated of paperboard or similar material which is characterized by a ring member formed of a semi-rigid plastic material having narrow top and side flanges and outer and inner annular grooves opening downwardly and inwardly, respectively, for securing the ring member on the top margin of the body sidewall and for removably securing a disc of paperboard, or the like, in closure forming relation in the ring member.
Abstract: Apparatus for handling magnetizable sheet material, and especially heavy metal plates, which apparatus comprises an overhead conveyor characterized by a supporting frame structure on which a plurality of magnetic roll or roller assemblies are mounted which roller assemblies include a magnet structure with a core having end extensions on which are rotatably carried sheet contacting and supporting rollers with associated pole extension members which are spaced along and extend radially of the axis of the core and which present a downwardly facing bottom surface area of substantial length extending fore and aft of the rollers and in spaced, confronting relation above the top surface of the material contacting the rollers so as to provide a wide flux path which is effective to draw the material into contact with the rollers, the pole extension members having non-magnetic wing portions enabling the connecting of successive roll assemblies being supported for limited vertical movement so as to afford sufficient fle
