Abstract:

Designs have been evolved of a container, quick opening device, inner seal, food expelling device pressure relief method during heating, and mouthpiece for an individual aluminum feeding container for space flight use. The pertinent parameters of these designs are ability to function under zero gravity, and presentation of food in a palatable, acceptable condition. The selected design consists of a rectangular container with a round dispensing end sealed by a foil inner seal and a screw-on cap for quick and easy access and hermetic sealing. The bottom plate also contains a screw-on cap for access to the enclosed expelling plate. The container will be fabricated by impact extrusion from 1100-F aluminum, the other metal components by forming, and casting. Author
