Title (EN) PELLET DISPENSER
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR DE PELLETS
Abstract:
(EN) A pellet dispensing device (10) having a rotor member (14) with a pellet passage (32, 33) for transporting a pellet (19) to a discharge opening (20). The rotor member has an escapement groove (36, 37) at the bottom for pieces of the pellet to be accommodated so that they do not jam the full sized pellets in the pellet passage. In a preferred embodiment, there is an additional groove (38, 39) at the top of the rotor member and in communication with the pellet passage which allows full sized pellets to be ejected therefrom by a dam member (16).
(FR) Le dispositif (10) de distribution de pellets possède un rotor (14) avec un passage des pellets (32, 33) pour transporter un pellet (19) vers un orifice de décharge (20). Le rotor possède une rainure d'échappement (36, 37) au fond pour recevoir les morceaux de pellets pour qu'ils ne bloquent pas les pellets entiers dans le passage de pellets. Dans un mode préféré de réalisation, une rainure supplémentaire (38, 39) est ménagée dans la partie supérieure du rotor et communique avec le passage de pellets pour éjecter les pellets entiers à l'aide d'un élément (16) ayant la fonction d'un barrage.
