In embodiments, the rings 115 and 120 are formed of a polymeric material. In an embodiment, the rings 115 and 120 are formed of an elastomer, such as, e.g., TPE. The second ring 120 is configured to mate (or come in contact) with an opening of a jar mounted by the jar adaptor 100. In an embodiment, the second ring 120 does not come in contact with a lid disposed on the opening of the jar. In an embodiment, upon the application of vacuum by a vacuum device (via the vacuum port 105), the lid lifts away from the opening of the jar and towards the first ring 115 of the jar adaptor 100. The ribs 125 (see above) are configured to provide a space between the lid and the opening of the jar that is sufficient or adequate to permit the removal of air (or other gas) from the jar.
  • [0033]
    FIG. 5 schematically illustrates a bottom view of the jar adaptor 100, showing the first ring 115, the second ring 120, and one of the outer ribs 125 and one of the inner ribs 126, in accordance with an embodiment of the invention. In some embodiments, one or both of the first ring 115 and the second ring 120 have circumferences that decrease along a vector oriented towards a top surface of the jar adaptor 100. In an embodiment, the circumference of the second ring 120 decreases in relation to the distance away from the first ring 115 such that the circumference is smaller closer to the first ring 115 than farther away (see FIG. 6). In an embodiment, the second ring 120 may be shaped similar to a cone or a portion of a cone. In an embodiment, the circumference of the first ring 115 decreases in relation to the distance away from a top portion of the outer shell 112 such that the circumference is smaller closer to the top portion of the outer shell 112 than towards the bottom of the outer shell 112. In an embodiment, the first ring 115 may be shaped similar to a cone or a portion of a cone. This may permit a user to mount the jar adaptor 100 on jars having openings of various sizes.
  • [0034]
    FIG. 6 schematically illustrates a cross-sectional side view of the jar 100 mounted on a jar 130 having a lid 135 on an opening 140 of the jar 130, in accordance with an embodiment of the invention. A portion of the jar 130 has come in contact with the second ring 120, but not the first ring 115. In an embodiment, upon mounting the jar adaptor 100 on the jar 130, a space 145 is formed between the lid 135 and a lower portion 129 of the first ring 115. The lid 135 is free to move vertically away (upon the removal of air from a vacuum device) and towards the opening 140. The lower portion 129 is configured to come in contact with a top surface of the lid 135. Upon the application of suction from a vacuum device, the lid 135 lifts away from the opening 140 and comes in contact with the lower portion 129. Air (or other gas) is removed from the jar 130. When a predetermined level of vacuum has been reached, application of vacuum via the vacuum device may be terminated. As the jar adaptor 100 is removed from the jar 130, the pressure difference between the jar and the external environment drives the lid 135 downward and towards the opening 140. In an embodiment, the pressure drop facilitates the formation of a seal between the lid 135 and the opening 140. In an embodiment, the pressure drop facilitates in the formation of a hermetic or substantially airtight seal between the lid 135 and the opening 140.
