Inside of the separated part of the cover, on the border of carving and glass-form parts, there is a large corresponding to the dredging sizes and form, and on the top part of cover there is a dredging clasping hardly the edge of the short tube. The structure becomes simpler—the cost price is decreased.01-12-2012

20120012552Refill For And A Method Of Inserting A Refill Into A Volatile Material Dispenser - A refill for a volatile material dispenser comprises a container having a neck portion. A wick is in contact with a volatile material in the container and extends out of the neck portion. A structure is disposed on an outer surface of the neck portion for attachment of a cap thereto. The structure is also adapted to interact with latches disposed in a volatile material dispenser to retain the refill therein and the container is devoid of an additional retaining structure on the neck portion thereof.01-19-2012
20120152882Medicine bottle with grip - A bottle for a medicine is disclosed. The bottle may have a base portion, a threaded neck portion, a child resistant cap and a grip portion. The bottle may be part of a kit having other bottles without a grip section. The bottle may be part of a retail display system.06-21-2012

20120118849Locking Bottle Preform - A preform to be used to create a plastic bottle has a substantially cylindrical body and a rounded cap at a top portion of the body. The preform also has a neck extending from the body, the neck has threading around at least a portion of an outer surface of the neck. A lip separates the neck from the body, and the lip has a larger diameter than the neck.05-17-2012
20120132608LARGE RETURNABLE CONTAINER, METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MOLDING THE SAME, AND BLOW MOLD WITH SEPARATE HEATING ZONES - A method of molding a large returnable container includes a heat treatment step for subjecting a thick preform formed of a polyester resin or a primary blow-molded article to intermediate blow molding with heating to obtain an intermediate molded article, and a final blow molding step that includes subjecting the intermediate molded article that has shrunk to final blow molding with heating to obtain a large returnable container. The heat treatment step includes disposing the preform or the primary blow-molded article in a heat treatment mold, and pressurizing the preform or the primary blow-molded article so that a shoulder and a body obtained by blow molding close contact to a cavity surface of the heat treatment mold, and are subjected to a heat treatment, the shoulder being heated at a low temperature as compared with the body.05-31-2012
20120074092WITHIN BOTTLE AERATOR - An in-bottle aerator for mixing the oxygen in the air with wine as the wine is poured from its bottle. The aerator has at least one air ingress channel extending from one end of the aerator to the other allowing air into the bottle to displace wine exiting the bottle. Air mixing channels draw air from outside the bottle and direct that air to lateral channels that intersect a central flow channel extending from one end of the bottle to another. The air mixing and air ingress channels are preferably arranged to allow the user to pour and aerate wine at the same time and with the bottle in any orientation about its axis. The aerator may be a separately formed component that can be inserted into the bottle by the bottle manufacturer, by a wine bottler or by an enduser. Alternatively, the aerator may be wholly or partly formed as part of the neck of the bottle. A completely and integrally formed aerator may be formed a part of a plastic wine bottle. For or plastic or glass wine bottles aeration channels may be formed on the internal surface of the neck of the bottle and an insert can be used to complete the within bottle aerator by the insertion (by the bottle manufacturer, by a wine bottler or by an enduser) of an aerator component having additional channels formed therein,03-29-2012
20120318767HIGH STRENGTH BOTTLE - A bottle with improved strength is provided. The bottle can have a liquid holding capacity of at least 2.5 gallons and can exhibit a drop impact resistance of at least 3 feet as measured by ASTMD 2463-95. The bottle can be formed from a substantially BPA-free material. The bottle can be used in liquid dispensers, such as water coolers.12-20-2012
20130140261SYNTHETIC RESIN CONTAINER - A novel synthetic resin container includes an entirely or partly dome-like shoulder portion interconnecting a mouth portion and an upper end of a body portion, and provides high strength at the shoulder portion and excellent aesthetic appearance. The shoulder portion has a dome-like region with a plurality of rhombic and triangular bulging portions arranged in the circumferential direction, each protruding outward from its rhombic or triangular outer edge toward its inner edge. The plurality of triangular bulging portions are arranged between the rhombic portions. The rhombic inner edge defines a region protruding inward of the container and thereby forming a rhombic depression, which is provided with a rib having a vertical contour line that protrudes outward. The triangular inner edge defines a region protruding inward of the container so as to form a triangular depression, which is provided with a rib having a vertical contour line that protrudes outward.06-06-2013
20110240588METHOD FOR MAKING CONTAINERS, AND CORRESPONDING CONTAINER - A container comprises a containment body having a main axis and a mouth or neck part, the opening of which defines a mouth plane of the container oriented in a direction transverse with respect to the main axis, where applied on at least part of the container is a tubular sleeve of film material shrunk on the container itself. The tubular sleeve has at least one end edge having, in different points of its angular development, different distances from the mouth plane. Preferentially, the container is likewise provided with at least one sculptured annular edge having a profile homologous to the profile of the aforesaid end edge of the tubular sleeve, and the sleeve is applied on the container with said end edge coinciding with the aforesaid sculptured annular edge having the homologous profile.10-06-2011
