US10493664B2 Methods for manufacturing bulked continuous carpet filament
A method of manufacturing bulked continuous carpet filament from recycled polymer. In various embodiments, the method includes: (1) reducing recycled polymer material into polymer flakes; (2) cleansing the polymer flakes; (3) melting the flakes into a polymer melt; (4) removing water and contaminants from the polymer melt by dividing the polymer melt into a plurality of polymer streams and exposing those streams to pressures below 5 millibars; (5) recombining the streams; and (6) using the resulting purified polymer to produce bulked continuous carpet filament.
US10493662B2 Methods for manufacturing bulked continuous filament from recycled PET
A method of manufacturing bulked continuous carpet filament that includes providing a polymer melt and separating the polymer melt from the extruder into at least eight streams. The multiple streams are exposed to a chamber pressure within a chamber that is below approximately 5 millibars. The streams are recombined into a single polymer stream and formed into bulked continuous carpet filament.
US10492625B1 Beverage container serving apparatus including movable gate and related methods
A beverage container serving apparatus for beverage containers may include a floor and at least one sidewall extending upwardly from the floor and including a curved base segment and a pair of parallel arms extending from the curved base segment. The beverage container serving apparatus may further include an inner wall extending upwardly from the floor between the pair of parallel arms defining a container channel having a container inlet into which beverage containers are input and a container outlet from which the beverage containers are served. A movable gate may be adjacent one of the container inlet and container outlet and configured to maintain a given beverage container within the container channel.
US10492542B1 Smoking articles and use thereof for yielding inhalation materials
The present invention describes articles, such as smoking articles, that can provide an inhalable substance in a form suitable for inhalation by a consumer. The article comprises a cartridge with an inhalable substance medium therein, control housing that includes an electrical energy source and an electrical power source, and a heating member that may be located in either the cartridge or the control housing. The control housing further may include puff-actuated current actuation components and current regulation components.
