Title
(EN) MOTORLESS BATCH CARBONATOR
(FR) APPAREIL D'ADDITION D'ANHYDRIDE CARBONIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A motorless batch carbonator for a carbonated drink dispenser is located in a chilled water bath (18) including a set of evaporator coils (16) located on the outside of the water bath with the ice build up on the inside thereof being controlled by an ice bank detector (22). The carbonator is comprised of an immersible closed tank (30) including a semi-permeable membrane carbonating section (32) where still water and CO2 gas are mixed together. Still water from a pressurized source is fed into the interior of the carbonator tank which is pressurized to operate a spring-biased spool valve (42) for opening and closing a CO2 supply line (50). A vent passage (70) through the top of the carbonator chamber is opened and closed to atmospheric pressure in response to the manual actuation of a spring-biased dispensing plunger (64) which includes a fluid dispensing path (62). A constrained spherical float device (80) resides on the surface of the carbonated water inside of the tank and to open and close the vent passage and thus control tank pressurization and operation of the spool valve controlling the supply of CO2.
(FR)
Un appareil d'addition d'anhydride carbonique en lots sans moteur, destiné à un distributeur de boissons gazéifiées, est situé dans un réservoir d'eau réfrigérée (18) comprenant un ensemble de serpentins évaporatoires (16) situés à l'extérieur du réservoir, l'accumulation de glace à l'intérieur de celui-ci étant réglée par un détecteur de glace (22). Le carbonateur est constitué d'un réservoir fermé immersible (30) qui comporte une section de carbonatation (32) à membrane semi-perméable où de l'eau plate et du gaz CO2 sont mélangés. De l'eau plate provenant d'une source pressurisée est amenée à l'intérieur du réservoir de carbonatation, lequel est pressurisé afin qu'il commande un clapet à boisseau à ressort (42) qui sert à ouvrir et à fermer une conduite d'amenée de CO2 (50). Un tuyau d'évent (70) traversant la partie supérieure de la chambre de carbonatation est ouvert et fermé à la pression atmosphérique en réponse à la commande manuelle d'un plongeur de distribution à ressort (64) qui comporte une voie (62) de distribution de fluide. Un flotteur sphérique forcé (80) demeure à la surface de l'eau carbonatée à l'intérieur du réservoir pour ouvrir et fermer le tuyau d'évent afin de régler la pressurisation du réservoir et le fonctionnement du clapet à boisseau qui règle l'arrivée de CO2.
