Title
(EN) BEVERAGE DISPENSING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DISTRIBUTEUR DE BOISSONS
Abstract
(EN)
A beverage dispensing system for providing a number of different flavored drinks mixed from concentrate and fluid. The system has a number of containers for storing different flavors of concentrate and a piping system including a coupling adapted to receive pressurized fluid, such as water, from an external source. Each container is in fluid communication with a specific fluid-driven proportion pump that is also in fluid communication with the piping system. Separate concentrate and fluid supply lines extend from each pump to a dispensing head. Valves in the dispensing head control the discharge of fluid therefrom so that when a selected beverage is desired, the appropriate concentrate and fluid from the associated fluid supply line are discharged simultaneously to ensure that the end beverage contains the appropriate mixture of concentrate and fluid so as to be of acceptable quality.

Le système distributeur de boissons décrit sert à offrir un certain nombre de boissons d'arômes différents mélangées à partir d'un concentré et d'un fluide. Le système comprend un certain nombre de récipients servant à stocker différents arômes de concentré, ainsi qu'un système de tubage comportant un raccord destiné à recevoir le fluide pressurisé, par exemple l'eau, en provenance d'une source extérieure. Chaque récipient est placé en communication fluide avec une pompe de dosage mue par fluide spécifique, qui est également placé en communication fluide avec le système de tubage. Des conduits séparés d'amené du concentré et du fluide s'étendent depuis chaque pompe jusqu'à une tête distributrice. Des vannes disposées dans la tête distributrice commandent la décharge du fluide à partir de la tête, de sorte que, lors de la sélection d'une boisson désirée, le concentré approprié et le fluide amené par le conduit d'amené de fluide associé soient déchargés simultanément assurant ainsi à l'utilisateur que la boisson obtenue contient le mélange approprié de concentré et de fluide, afin de présenter une qualité acceptable.
