A German inventor developed a multiple chamber container (multi-energy zone container) for liquids or granulates

Summary

A German inventor has developed a multi-chamber container for the transport and storage of liquids or granulates. This solution enables the transport of different goods without mixing at once. The thermal separation is achieved by insulating air gap between the chambers. The inventor offers this solution to food, beverages, pharmaceutical and medical container manufacturing companies as licensees together with engineering support to adapt the solution to the customer specific requirements.

Partner expertise sought

Industrial partners (e.g. container manufacturer for various applications) are sought as licensees. Explicit: Container producers and Suppliers of beverage industry, food industry, cosmetics industry, pharmaceutical industry, chemical industry, petrochemicals industry, process industry and so on.

Description

A German inventor has developed a multi-chamber container / multi-energy zone container for industrial and domestic applications. Conventional single-chamber containers have some disadvantages depending on the area of application, e.g. with regard to freshness protection, ecology or process and consumption efficiency. The lack of partitioning in single-chamber systems promotes unhygienic consumption of beverages (e.g. the usage of a 1,5 litre three chamber container for sparkling mineral water offers three separated fully carbonated and unimpaired 0,5 litre fresh portions). In addition, when handling liquids or granulates, there is a need for solutions that combine packaging units of the same or different types in containers. With this innovative multi-chamber container, liquids or granulates can be combined in a compact, easily producible and manageable container. The central connecting element offers the possibility to combine one, two or more partial containers in a compact unit and a uniform design (the multi-chamber container) depending on the individual need. Due to the air gap between the subcontainers in the construction, the subcontainers are thermically insulated from each other, and the surface of the container is thus enlarged. This allows faster cooling or heating of the goods in container from outside. The construction of the partial containers can be identical and, due to their simple geometry, they can be easily produced from a variety of materials and easy to fill. They can be locked individually or in their entirety using a common cap. With regard to container geometry, connecting element and closure, numerous variants are available for individual customer requirements. The inventor offers this solution to food, beverages, pharmaceutical and medical container manufacturing companies as licensees together with engineering support to adapt the solution to the customer specific requirements.

Advantages and innovations

• The container is simple and material-saving and can be produced using common production processes • Liquids granulates or e.g. pasta are combined in compact space saving units that are easy to handle • The container enables smaller, hygienic packaging units with optimum materials saving and supports sustainable and ecological act, helps consumers to save the ecology and thus to reduce the volume of waste • The individual need of customers for smaller packaging units can help them to consume efficiently and at the same time to protect the environment by avoiding food scraps. • The thermal insulation allows the storage of materials with different temperature ranges and thus open the way for more other product (e.g. thermal container) derivations. In addition the design allows faster cooling or heating of the container from the outside, • Reduced the number of discarded PET container in the nature by 2/3 when using a three-chamber-container or by ¾ when using a four-chamber container, • Different medical products that must be medicinal applied together can be easily combined and packaged, • This innovative container supports faster process execution (e. g. chemical treatment or medicament preparation in the hospital) and increase efficiency of energy used in the production therefore saves also in this way the ecology. • The multi-chamber container helps industrial businesses to increase profitability of their company by reducing wasted search time e.g. in the production areas. • The multi-chamber container allows hygienic consumption, better drink behavior, freshness conservation of packaged foods and beverages and therefore increase healthiness of customers.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
