Title (EN) VOLUME AND FLOW MEASURING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE MESURE DU VOLUME ET DU DEBIT D'UN LIQUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus (10) for dispensing liquids (30) includes a body (12) in which the liquid is initially located. A one-way valve (18) and and outlet (20) located on said body in reasonable proximity to each other the outlet (20) communicating with a conduit (22) able to be closed by a valve (24). When the body (12) is located such that the one-way valve (18) and the outlet (20) are below the surface (32) of the liquid (30), gravity ensures constant liquid flow through the conduit (22) when the valve (24) is opened, and when air begins to pass through the one-way valve (18). A flow rate change measuring instrument (40, 60) has two metallic strips (50, 51) one of which (51) is able to move in relation to the other strip (50) in response to flow changes, the capacitance between the strips being processed to obtain a measurement of flow rate change. The measuring apparatus (40, 60) may be located in the conduit (22) of the dispensing apparatus (10).
(FR) L'appareil décrit (10) qui sert à la distribution de liquides (30) comprend un corps (12) dans lequel le liquide est initialement contenu. Un clapet unidirectionnel (18) et un orifice de sortie (20) sont placés sur ce corps à proximité raisonnable l'un de l'autre, la sortie (20) se trouvant en communication avec un conduit (22) pouvant être fermé par un clapet (24). Lorsque le corps (12) se trouve dans une position telle que le clapet unidirectionnel (18) et l'orifice de sortie (20) sont situés au-dessous de la surface (32) du liquide (30), la gravité assure un écoulement constant du liquide à travers le conduit (22), lorsque le clapet (24) est ouvert et que l'air commence à entrer par le clapet unidirectionnel (18). Un instrument (40, 60) servant à mesurer les variations du débit comprend deux bandes métalliques (50, 51), dont l'une (51) est mobile par rapport à l'autre (50) en réponse aux variations du débit, la capacitance entre les bandes étant traitée de façon à permettre l'obtention d'une mesure de la variation du débit. L'appareil de mesure (40, 60) peut être disposé dans le conduit (22) de l'appareil distributeur (10).
