A coiled tube chain assembly is provided designed for use with a carrier gripper block to grip the coiled tubing. The roller chain assembly provides the traction system for use in the coil tubing injector head. The roller chain is comprised of center plates and cover plates that are press fit onto the chain pins. The use of such press fit center plates and cover plates increases the number of link plates holding the chain pin.


A pallet cover suitable for use in covering at least a portion of a payload on a pallet and a kit for use in making the pallet cover. In one embodiment, the pallet cover includes a top wall, a front wall, a rear wall, a left side wall, and a right side wall, wherein the walls are detachably joined to one another. Each of the top wall, the front wall, the rear wall, the left side wall, and the right side wall includes a first fabric sheet and a second fabric sheet, the first and second fabric sheets being joined together to form a plurality of pockets. Each pocket may removably receive a temperature-control member containing a phase-change material. At least one of the top wall, the front wall, the rear wall, the left side wall and the right side wall includes a plurality of detachably joined portions.


Thermally insulated shipping system for use in transporting a pallet-sized payload. In one embodiment, the system includes a plurality of thermally insulating walls arranged to define an interior volume suitable for receiving a pallet-sized payload. The thermally insulating walls include a top wall, a bottom wall, a front wall, a rear wall, a left wall, and a right wall, of which all but the bottom wall include at least two slots facing towards the interior volume. One of the slots is an inner slot that is more proximal to the interior volume, and one of the slots is an outer slot that is more distal to the interior volume. The system also includes a plurality of inner cassettes disposed in at least some of the inner slots and a plurality of outer cassettes disposed in at least some of the outer slots. The inner and outer cassettes include phase-change materials.


Gel including a phase-change material and a gelling agent. In one embodiment, the phase-change material may be n-tetradecane and/or n-hexadecane. The gelling agent, which may constitute up to about 10%, by weight, of the gel, may be a high molecular weight styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene (SEBS) triblock copolymer with a styrene:rubber ratio of about 30:70 to 33 :67 % by weight. To form the gel, the phase-change material and the gelling agent may be mixed at a temperature at which the phase-change material is in a liquid state and which is below the flash point of the phase-change material and at which the mixture is not a viscoelastic liquid, whereby a non-homogeneous mixture is produced. The non- homogeneous mixture may then be heated to a temperature that is below the flash point of the phase-change material and at which a viscoelastic liquid is formed. The viscoelastic liquid may then be cooled to room temperature.

A food composition capable of maintaining a crunchy texture after freezing and reheating is disclosed. The food composition includes a crust or an outer casing having a dough-based matrix or a batter-based matrix with a thickness of about 2 to about 150 mm, and texture modifying particles dispersed throughout the matrix. The texture modifying particles generally comprise about 12 to about 40% by weight of the food composition and provide the food composition with a crunchy texture. The texture modifying particles may be crushed particles of food products, such as fried grain chips, fried vegetable chips, extruded cereals, extruded crackers, or combinations thereof.

A press assembly for forming a food product where the press assembly includes a cutting dye including a body that extends from a proximal end to a distal end. The proximal end has an irregular shape and a sharp edge configured to cut the food product into the irregular shape. The body has an interior surface surrounding an interior space. The press assembly further includes a pressure plate arranged within the interior space. The pressure plate includes a pressing surface including a first zone and a second zone surrounding and extending from the first zone at a taper angle such that an outer end of the second zone is recessed from an inner end adjacent the first zone. The cutting dye and the pressure plate cooperate to press and cut the food product. The food product is also described.


Gel including a phase-change material and a gelling agent. In one embodiment, the phase-change material may be n-tetradecane, n-hexadecane or mixtures thereof. The gelling agent may be a high molecular weight styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene (SEBS) triblock copolymer with a styrene:rubber ratio of about 30:70 to 33:67% by weight. To form the gel, the phase-change material and the gelling agent may be mixed at an elevated temperature relative to room temperature to partially, but not completely, dissolve the gelling agent. The mixture may then be cooled to room temperature. Alternatively, the phase-change material and the gelling agent may be mixed at room temperature, and the mixture may then be heated to form a viscoelastic liquid, which is then cooled to room temperature. The invention is also directed at a method of preparing the gel, a thermal exchange implement including the gel, and a method of preparing the thermal exchange implement.


A microwaveable container for transporting, freezing, storing, and cooking a multi-component foodstuff is disclosed. The container comprises a unitary tray having a base portion and a lid portion and employs a susceptor in combination with steam and venting to cook the multi-component foodstuff in a single microwave cooking step.

Embodiments of the present invention described herein relate to packages, and particularly to a packages of an article or plurality of articles. The packages described herein can include a first tray, a second tray, a hinge connecting the first tray and the second tray that is configured to enable the first tray and the second tray to pivot relative to each other to a first open position and a second closed position, and a display device. The display device can be positioned between the first tray and the second tray in an interior portion of the package.


Gel including a phase-change material and a gelling agent. In one embodiment, the phase-change material may be n-tetradecane, and the gelling agent may be a styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene (SEBS) triblock copolymer. In particular, the SEBS copolymer may be a high molecular weight SEBS copolymer with a styrene:rubber ratio of about 30:70 to 33:67% by weight. The SEBS copolymer may constitute up to about 10%, by weight, of the gel, preferably less than 6%, by weight, of the gel, with n-tetradecane constituting the remainder. To form the gel, the phase-change material and the gelling agent are mixed together at an elevated temperature relative to room temperature to partially, but not completely, dissolve the gelling agent, i.e., a homogeneous solution is not formed. The mixture is then allowed to cool to room temperature. The invention is also directed at a method of preparing the gel and a thermal exchange implement including the gel.
