A controlled environment gassing system is provided for removing the existing environment from containers. The existing environment may be purged by passing the containers along a gas distribution manifold disposed parallel to the direction of travel of the containers. The manifold includes at least one region of flow resistance disposed parallel to the direction of travel, and the manifold may have a width less than the width of the container and/or screen openings sized to provide a laminarized flow, for supplying a controlled environment gas flushing ...
[ We claim:] [38.] A method of replacing the existing gaseous environment from containers with open tops, moving on a conveyor in a direction of travel, comprising the steps of:providing a rail having a length and a width positioned along the conveyer, an inlet in the rail for receiving a controlled environment gas from a source; and a distribution manifold formed in a bottom portion of the rail, the manifold having a length and a width, the width of the manifold being less than the width of the container opening the manifold longitudinally extending alo...
