Patent
Kellogg Brown and Root | Date: 2016-09-22

The heat recovery system includes an oven having a treatment air with a treatment air temperature and a treatment air dew point temperature to treat a product or product in process. A zone outlet exhaust waste treatment air following the treatment of the product. A preheating zone includes a preheating inlet for the introduction of preheating air having a preheating air temperature and a preheating air dew point temperature to preheat the product. A transfer duct extends between the zone outlet of the oven and the preheating zone to transfer a portion of waste treatment air from the oven to the preheating zone to create the preheating air to preheat additional product. The preheating air preheats the product in the preheating zone to a product temperature that is at least equal to the treatment air dew point temperature to eliminate surface condensation on the product during treatment in the oven.


A resealable packaging container for housing goods includes a wrapper of a flexible material that encloses the goods within. A perforated panel is cut into the wrapper for movement between open and closed positions. The perforated panel defines a wrapper opening in the wrapper when the perforated panel is in the open position to allow access to the goods disposed within the resealable packaging container. A pressure sensitive coated collar adhesively engages the inner surface of the wrapper underneath the perforated panel to partially surround the wrapper opening. The pressure sensitive coated collar includes an open central portion that is disposed inwardly of the wrapper opening and an exposed region that extends between the wrapper opening and the open central portion. The perforated panel reseals to the exposed region of the pressure sensitive coated collar in the closed position.

A merchandizing case may include a housing having first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth walls. The first wall may oppose and may be substantially parallel to the second wall, the third wall may oppose and may be substantially parallel to the fourth wall, and the fifth wall may oppose and may be substantially parallel to the sixth wall. The housing may have an interior volume defined by the first wall, the second wall, the third wall, the fourth wall, the fifth wall, and the sixth wall. A first dispensing opening may be formed in the first wall to provide access to the interior volume and is usable when the housing is supported by the fourth wall. A second dispensing opening may be formed in the second wall to provide access to the interior volume and is usable when the housing is supported by the second wall.

The disclosed retail case includes a base member and an upper member selectively attached to the base member. The base member has a bottom wall and at least two base walls extending from the bottom wall. The base walls have an outer surface and an inner surface. The upper member has a top wall and at least two upper walls extending from the top wall. The upper walls have an outer surface and an inner surface. The outer surface of the upper walls attaches to the inner surface of the respective base walls at an attachment portion of the upper walls that is selectively removable from the upper walls to allow the attachment portion to remain attached to the base member when the upper member is removed from the base member. The attachment portion may also associate with flap portions that are connected to form a divider.

A packaging system (20) for forming and filling a transportable container (22) of plurality of bulk goods includes a frame (26) having a bottom support (48) and an upper support (32). An upper turntable (34) is rotatably supported within the upper support (32) and a lower turntable (50) is rotatably supported on the bottom support (48). A drive system (58) includes at least one pulley system (62, 64, 66) interconnected to the upper and lower turntables (34, 50) for simultaneously driving and synchronizing rotation of the upper and lower turntables (34, 50) with the at least one pulley system (62, 64, 66). A slip frame former (42) extends downwardly from the upper turntable (34) and a roll of stretch wrap (92) is disposed in overlapping relationship with the slip frame former (42) and the bottom support (48) during simultaneous and synchronized rotation of the turntables (34, 50) with the at least one pulley system (62, 64, 66).

A display bag is provided and may include a housing formed from a flexible material and having a first end, a second end, and an inner volume extending between the first end and the second end. The display bag may also include a hanging device disposed proximate to the first end and a first panel disposed proximate to the second end and movable from a closed state closing a first opening formed in the housing and restricting access to the inner volume and an open state permitting access to the inner volume via the first opening.


A vertical form fill and seal system supports a sheet of material having material segments and a tube sized for drawing edges of the elongated sheet of material together in an overlapping configuration to form the sheet into a substantially tube shape. The VFFS also includes a sealer that seals the edges of the material to one another and a gusseting mechanism sized for forming a gusseted tuck in each of a left panel portion of the material and a right panel portion of the material. A cutting mechanism removes a first portion and a second portion of a first segment of the material segments in order to form a first cut and a second cut in the first segment and a sealing mechanism folds and seals the first segment at the first cut and at the second cut to provide an end wall with a substantially flat, rectangular-shaped footprint.

A reclosable bag for storing edibles is provided and includes a body having an inner surface defining an inner volume that receives the edibles and an outer surface formed on an opposite side of the body than the inner surface. A seal extends substantially parallel to a longitudinal axis of the body and is formed by joining a first portion of the inner surface to a second portion of the inner surface. A deadfold material is disposed in the seal between the first portion of the inner surface and the second portion of the inner surface, is formed from a malleable material, and is retained in position along the body by the seal.

A container for foodstuff is provided and includes a housing having an inner surface extending from a proximal end to a distal end about a longitudinal axis. The inner surface defines a height H1 and a width D1, whereby a ratio of the height H1 to the width D1 is between approximately 0.5 and 2.0. A divider is disposed within the housing and includes first, second, and third radially extending fins defining first, second, and third chambers within the housing.
