Title
(EN) SEMI-SOLID FOOD DEPOSITOR AND METHOD OF USE
(FR) APPAREIL SERVANT A DEPOSER UN ALIMENT SEMI-SOLIDE ET METHODE D'UTILISATION DE CET APPAREIL
Abstract
(EN) A food depositing apparatus (10) for depositing a semi-solid food product within a fixed area (68) defined by a receptacle (69) includes a depositing mechanism (12). The depositing mechanism (12) includes an extrusion device (22) having an opening (30) through which semi-solid food product can be fed into the extrusion device (22). A pressure element (36) coupled to a drive mechanism (12) is configured to extrude the semi-solid food product from the extrusion device (22) through an exit port (40). A valve (52) located at the exit port (40) is adapted to selectively control the flow of extruded semi-solid food product. An air knife (56) positioned adjacent to the cutoff valve (52) cuts the continuous stream of semi-solid food product into semi-solid food pieces. These pieces are deposited on the receptacle (69) which is positioned on a scale (70). A control module (74) is coupled to the scale (70) and cutoff valve (52) to control operation of the depositing mechanism (12).
(FR) Appareil à usage alimentaire (10) servant à déposer une denrée alimentaire semi-solide dans un périmètre déterminé (68) défini par un réceptacle (69) et comprenant un mécanisme de dépôt (12). Ledit mécanisme (12) présente un dispositif d'extrusion (22) doté d'une ouverture (30) à travers laquelle la denrée alimentaire semi-solide est déversée. Un élément de compression (36) couplé àun mécanisme d'entraînement (12) a pour fonction de réaliser l'extrusion de la denrée alimentaire semi-solide par le dispositif d'extrusion (22) grâce à un ajutage (40). Un clapet (52) situé au niveau de l'ajutage (40) permet de réguler le flux de matière alimentaire semi-solide déversée. Un couteau pneumatique (56) positionné parallèlement au clapet (52) interrompt le flux continu de matière alimentaire de manière à réaliser des portions. Ces portions sont déposées sur le réceptacle (69) positionné sur une balance (70). Un module de contrôle (74) est couplé à la balance (70) et au clapet (52) de manière à réguler le fonctionnement du mécanisme de dépôt (12).
