A reinforcing strip extends horizontally along the upper end portion of the mesh side wall of the bag. The reinforcing strip overlaps the upper edge of the first side wall such that it is joined to the first side wall through a horizontal seam positioned well beneath the top edge of the reinforcing strip to form an extension that protrudes well above (e.g., ½ inch to 1½ inches or even more) the upper edge of the mesh side wall. In order to strengthen the seam at the sides of the bag, the side edges of the reinforcing strip are joined to the second film side wall along at least most of the vertical extent of the extension. This film-to-film bond is considerably stronger than a bond through an intermediate mesh layer, as occurs along the remainder of the side seams of the bag.

    Abstract: Woven textile structures constructed using dual-loom technology are provided. Filaments are woven in such a way as to create a first set of different discrete layers of the same fabric in some regions of the textile and a second set of discrete layers of the same fabric at other regions of the same textile. The different layers are used to construct various textile structures such as a woven bag.

  • Patent number: 8360642
    Abstract: A ventilated bulk bag formed of a first fabric of interwoven yarns that define gaps therebetween to be air permeable, with a top panel formed of a second fabric of first yarns with a first cross-sectional shape and second yarns of a second cross-sectional shape interwoven in a second alliance to defines gaps adjacent the interwoven yarns, which gaps are apparent when viewed from an oblique angle relative to a plan view of the top panel, for keeping dust landing thereon from going through the gaps but allowing the top panel to ventilate air through the gaps.

    Abstract: The bag has a body and a bottom. A mesh sheet is attached to the wall of the body and extends over the bottom. A zipper is provided for attaching the bottom to the bag body such that the bottom of the bag can be opened to allow particulate matter to be emptied from the bag without removing the contents of the bag. A pocket-like compartment is provided within the bag. The compartment has a lining formed of thermal insulating material such that the temperature of beverages and other food items can be maintained for an extended period of time.

  • Publication number: 20120321228
    Abstract: A PAM delivery product is a sold form of polyacrylamide polymer (PAM). Among other things, the PAM delivery product can be used to prevent ruts formed during center-pivot irrigation, prevent erosion of irrigation ditches, clarify wastewater, and assist seed germination and seedling establishment. The PAM delivery product includes pure PAM and water to create a solid “loaf”. Water-soluble calcium (Ca) can also be added to the PAM delivery product depending on the specific application for the PAM delivery product. When Ca is used in the PAM delivery product, it is present in a 9:1 ratio to the PAM.

  • Publication number: 20120281935
    Abstract: The invention relates to a transportation unit for transport of foodstuffs that are highly viscous or solid at ambient temperatures. The transportation unit comprises a first bag, a second bag arranged to fit into the first bag, and one or more hoist bands wrapped around the bottom side of the first bag and connected thereto. The first bag has an upper side and a bottom side, and is made from a woven fabric, preferably a woven polymer. Additionally, the first bag comprises a transfer opening for removing the foodstuffs from the transportation unit. The second bag comprises an opening for inserting and/or removing the foodstuffs. The second bag is capable of transporting more than 2000 kg of foodstuffs. The one or more hoist bands form loops above the upper side of the first bag.

  • Publication number: 20120275729
    Abstract: The present invention teaches a new apparatus and process for manufacturing mesh bags using a tube cloth. The apparatus and process involve supplying a continuous tube cloth and at least one band with preprinted labels, propping up the tube cloth with a dynamic guiding assembly, attaching the preprinted labels to the tube cloth using hot melted adhesive or heat sealing methods and manufacturing a product from the tube cloth with the horizontal preprinted labels, and attaching plastic film to the tube mesh cloth. The invention also teaches a dynamic guiding assembly which can be used to punch holes on the tube cloth with heating press and avoid attaching of two opposite sides of the tube cloth.

    Abstract: A polyethylene terephthalate multifilament prepared by spinning polyethylene terephthalate chips having an intrinsic viscosity of 0.8 to 1.3 is provided. In order to improve the energy absorption capability of a textile for polyethylene terephthalate air bags, a textile for air bag having an improved rupture property at a welt portion in an air bag cushion deployment test can be prepared using a polyethylene terephthalate fiber by adjusting a strength/deformation curve of the polyethylene terephthalate fiber. Here, the polyethylene terephthalate fiber has a strength/deformation curve in which the polyethylene terephthalate fiber extends by less than 4% when subjected to an initial stress of 1.0 g/d at room temperature, extends by less than 12% subjected to a medium stress of 4.5 g/d and extends by 3% or more until fibers are cut at a tensile strength of at least 7.
