The patent application (Publication Number: US20230382626A1) describes an insulated container designed for transporting temperature-sensitive contents. The container consists of an external box and an internal box, with gaps between them filled with loose-fill insulation material to create an insulated space. The internal box is surrounded by the external box, with extensions from the internal box covering the gaps between the sidewalls of the boxes. The loose-fill insulation used in the container can be recycled pulp and has an insulation R-value per inch in the range of approximately 3.1-3.8.

Additionally, the patent application details a method for filling the insulated container with loose-fill insulation material. The method involves inserting an internal box within an external box, filling the gaps between them with insulation material, and positioning the extensions of the internal box to cover the gaps. The loose-fill insulation used in the method can be recycled pulp and has an insulation R-value per inch in the range of approximately 3.1-3.8. The insulation can be blown into the gaps through a filling nozzle from a blow-in cellulose insulation machine. This innovative design and method aim to provide efficient insulation for transporting temperature-sensitive contents in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
