  • Patent number: 10266334
    Abstract: A barrier package aerosol container includes a can, valve, and piston disposed in the interior volume of the can. The piston is movable toward a top end of the can to facilitate dispensing of flowable material in the can. Opposing surfaces of the piston and the can and the valve define an interstitial space of the interior volume in which the flowable product is receivable. The piston is contacts at least one of the interior surface of the can at its top end and the valve, to define a piston interface when the piston is at the top end of the can during use. At least one of the piston, the can, and the valve defines one or more flow passages at the piston interface to allow flowable material in the interstitial space to flow through the piston interface toward the valve inlet during use.

    Inventors: Bruce C. Merrick, Henry L. Nichols, IV
  • Patent number: 8869461
    Abstract: A stadium and arena seating system is provided which preferably utilizes pre-cast concrete tread surfaces and metallic or other non-concrete vertical risers therebetween. The pre-cast concrete treads have non-concrete front embeds embedded within the front of the treads respectively, and an integrally formed upwardly extending concrete lip portion for shedding water from the upper adjacent riser that eliminates the need for a non-concrete rear embed. The front embeds may comprise a metallic or other non-concrete material similar to the vertical risers. The vertical risers are arranged in a shingled fashion overlapping the upwardly extending concrete lip portion of the treads to provide water and debris shedding. In a further aspect, the upwardly extending concrete lip portion may optionally be formed with a plurality of pre-formed mounting holes through which fasteners for fastening a lower portion of the riser may be received.

  • Patent number: 8371482
    Abstract: A lever of an aerosol valve having a valve stem includes a lever member having first and second end portions, a first aperture disposed in the first end portion, and a second aperture disposed between the first and second end portions. The first aperture is configured to permit the lever member to be releasably received over a valve stem of an aerosol valve in a dispensing position, in which the second end portion extends outwardly from the valve stem to provide for pivotally displacing the valve stem to dispense product therethrough. The second aperture is configured so that the lever member fits in a stored position with the second aperture around a portion of the valve stem, and the first and second end portions extending alongside the valve stem, such that the lever member may be stored under a cover.
