  • Patent number: 7655177
    Abstract: A wide mouth plastic barrel with a removable lid and a clamping ring closure is manufactured by extruding a plastic tube into a blow mold and by producing a closed preform. The preform is finish-blown to a barrel body, wherein the blowing air for finish-blowing a barrel body with a closed lid is introduced through a blow nozzle inserted into an intermediate ring of the barrel body and the blowing air for finish-blowing a barrel body with a bung lid is introduced through a bung hole by a blow nozzle and optionally through a blow nozzle in the intermediate ring. After removal from the blow mold, the lid is separated from the barrel body by cutting out the intermediate ring. A seal is inserted into the barrel lid, and the barrel lid is fastened by the clamping ring on a projection of the basic barrel member.

  • Patent number: 7556709
    Abstract: In a method for manufacturing a plastic container for liquids, the container is blow-molded to have a securing segment on an outer side of the recess of the front wall for centering and securing the finish-blowmolded container in a welding machine and to have a round depression in the outer side of the recess that has a diameter matching a nominal width of the dispensing valve. The bottom of the round depression is cut by a cutting tool that is centered in the round depression for producing the discharge opening of the container. A fastening flange of the intake socket of the dispensing valve is fused to an outer edge of the discharge opening. Alternatively, a dispensing socket of plastic material having an outer thread is fused to the outer edge of the discharge opening and the dispensing valve is secured on the dispensing socket by a union nut.

  • Patent number: 7180721
    Abstract: A plastic barrel, embodied as a bung barrel or a lid barrel, is manufactured as a single-layer container or multi-layer container by extrusion blow molding. The plastic barrel has a barrel body having an inner surface and an outer surface. The barrel body has sections integrated into the barrel body, wherein the sections are made of electrically conducting plastic material and form electric connections between the inner surface and the outer surface of the barrel body so that electric charges of the interior of the barrel can be dissipated to the outer surface.

  • Patent number: 6655541
    Abstract: A sectioned storage container for liquids has an inner plastic container to be filled with a liquid and a plastic receptacle that surrounds the inner container so that an intermediate space is formed between the inner container and the receptacle. The inner container is made of at least two blow-molded monolithic parts connected with one another by a groove-shaped vertical recess extending in the sidewalls, the container bottom, and the top of the inner container. The receptacle has an insertion opening for the inner container so that the inner container projects with top portions thereof upwardly from the receptacle through the insertion opening. The sidewalls and the receptacle bottom of the receptacle have a groove-shaped vertical recess which is matched to the recess of the sidewalls and the container bottom of the inner container. A peripheral vertical reinforcement strap engages the vertical recesses and reinforces the storage container.
