  • Patent number: 9993748
    Abstract: A clip of the present application generally comprises a first clip member, a second clip member, and a retention feature. The first clip member and the second clip member are coupled together and capable of being placed in at least two positions. In the first position, the clip is capable of receiving a bag containing a fluid, and, in the second position, the bag is capable of being held between the first and second clip members. While the clip is holding the bag, two or more pockets are formed in the bag, and the fluid is generally restricted or prohibited from transferring from one pocket to another pocket while the clip is in this position. A retention feature retains the clip, which is holding a bag, to a centrifuge receptacle and allows the clip to be placed in a predetermined position on the centrifuge receptacle.

    Abstract: A mixing pouch forms a packaging product that includes a first compartment containing a supply of a liquid ingredient and a second compartment that contains a supply of a powdered ingredient with a breakable seal between the two compartments to separate the two ingredients. Rupturing the breakable seal creates a common interior cavity and allows the mixing of the two ingredients to create a mixed product. One end of the mixing pouch is formed with a dispenser through which the mixed product is dispensed for use. An apparatus, such as a positionable clamp or an adhesive strip on the exterior of the mixing pouch, can reduce the size of the common interior cavity to facilitate the dispensing of the mixed product. Preferably, the mixing pouch is a flexible plastic member having a dispensing end formed with a channel closed by a tear-away portion.

  • Patent number: 8939681
    Abstract: This invention relates to a composite bag for use in earth bag construction systems such as backfill pack systems in underground mines and a construction system using such bags. The composite bags each comprises a pair of long, narrow inner bags of woven polypropylene located longitudinally within and constrained along their length by an outer bag of woven polypropylene. In use, the composite bags are laid flat on top of one another on a working surface (for instance the footwall in an underground mine). The bags could be glued or otherwise attached to one another in this configuration. Tie elements, such as timber elongates, are threaded through aligned slits spaced apart along the length of the bags. The elongates are set against the hanging wall and a backfill slurry is pumped into the inner bags. As each inflating composite bag expands, the slurry water weeps from the bags which rise up the timber elongates during the pumping process.

    Abstract: Apparatus 10 has breachable flow conduit 12 for discharging stored fluid 12F contained in storage chamber 10C out to the ambient. Chamber access region 10R is positioned proximate perimeter 10P of the apparatus. The breachable flow conduit is within the access region, and has an inner end 12C proximate the storage chamber and an outer end 12P proximate the perimeter of the apparatus. The flow conduit has outer pressed seal 14P between the outer end of the flow conduit and the perimeter of the apparatus. The flow conduit also has inner pressed seal 14C between the inner end of the flow conduit and the edge of the storage chamber. The flow conduit expands towards the perimeter of the apparatus under external pressure, typically applied by the consumer. The pressure causes the flow conduit to breach at the perimeter of the apparatus. The flow conduit also expands towards the storage chamber. The pressure causes the flow conduit to breach at the edge of the storage chamber.

    Abstract: A liner bag for use with a warming device has an inner bag and an outer bag. The inner bag has an inner chamber for receiving and at least partially enclosing a container. The outer bag has an outer chamber that at least partially encloses the inner bag and that receives and encloses a heat transfer fluid that transfers heat to the container. The side edges of the inner bag are joined to the side edges of the outer bag but the front face, rear face, and bottom edge of the inner bag are not joined to the front face, rear face, and bottom edge of the outer bag so that the heat transfer fluid may flow between the outer bag and inner bag for more effectively transferring heat to the inner bag and the container enclosed in the inner bag. The liner bag may also have an anti-microbial agent for disinfecting the heat transfer fluid placed in the outer bag.
