Title
(EN) PACKAGE FOR A TOBACCO-CONTAINING MATERIAL WITH A VALVE ASSEMBLY AND RELATED PACKAGING METHOD
(FR) EMBALLAGE POUR UN MATÉRIAU CONTENANT DU TABAC COMPRENANT UN ENSEMBLE VANNE, ET PROCÉDÉ D'EMBALLAGE ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A package that may be employed to store a tobacco-containing material is provided. The package may include a container and a valve assembly. The container may include a body portion and a cover configured to engage the body portion. The body portion may define an internal space therein. The valve assembly may be configured to affect an atmosphere within the internal space of the container. For example, the valve assembly may remain closed except when releasing pressure from the internal space. Thereby, by way of further example, the valve assembly may vent the container so as to avoid damage thereto, while reducing moisture loss from the tobacco-containing material stored in the internal space.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un emballage qui peut être employé pour stocker un matériau contenant du tabac. L'emballage peut comprendre un contenant et un ensemble vanne. Le contenant peut comprendre une partie corps et un couvercle configuré pour se mettre en prise avec la partie corps. La partie corps peut définir un espace interne à l'intérieur de celle-ci. L'ensemble vanne peut être configuré pour affecter une atmosphère à l'intérieur de l'espace interne du contenant. Par exemple, l'ensemble vanne peut rester fermé sauf lors de la libération de la pression de l'espace interne. Ainsi, selon un autre exemple, l'ensemble vanne peut aérer le contenant de manière à éviter les dommages subis par celui-ci, tout en réduisant la perte d'humidité du matériau contenant du tabac stocké dans l'espace interne.
