In a pair of volume-variable containers (11, 12), the volume-variable container (11) on the side of a vertical high-temperature tank (1) is supported on the front side of a horizontal communicating tube (7) in the moving direction thereof, and the volume-variable container (12) on the side of a vertical low-temperature tank (2) is supported on the rear side of the horizontal communicating tube (7) in the moving direction thereof, and a gas sealed inside the containers is transported by the difference in pressure between the volume-variable container (11) on the vertical high-temperature tank (1) side and the volume-variable container (12) on the vertical low-temperature tank (2) side. A plurality of pairs of volume-variable containers (11, 12) are supported by a travel belt (4) via the respective horizontal communicating tubes (7), and the travel belt (4) travels with respect to a heat-insulating wall (3) due to a difference in total buoyancy (F1 - F2) between the total buoyancy (F1) of buoyancies of the volume-variable containers (11) on the vertical high-temperature tank (1) side and the total buoyancy (F2) of buoyancies of the volume-variable containers (12) on the vertical low-temperature tank (2) side.

||PCT/US2014/023426||GOJO INDUSTRIES, INC.||BROWN, Paul Jason|
A dispensing system is provided including a dispensing device that dispenses a material stored within the dispensing system during a dispense event. A dimensionally adjustable element is coupled to the dispensing device. The dimensionally adjustable element can actuate the dispensing device to facilitate the dispense event based upon a dimensional adjustment of the dimensionally adjustable element. A sensor is coupled to the dimensionally adjustable element and can detect a presence of a user in proximity to the dispensing system. The sensor can activate the dimensional adjustment of the dimensionally adjustable element in response to detecting the presence of the user in proximity to the dispensing system. In this manner material can be dispensed from the dispensing system when the user is in proximity to the same.
