Title (EN) HERMETIC SEALING ASSEMBLY FOR REFRIGERATORS IN MACHINES FOR VENDING PREPACKAGED FOODSTUFFS, SUCH AS TOASTS, SMALL PIZZAS OR THE LIKE
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE FERMETURE HERMETIQUE POUR DISPOSITIFS FRIGORIFIQUES SE TROUVANT DANS DES DISTRIBUTEURS AUTOMATIQUES D'ALIMENTS PREEMBALLES, TELS QUE DES TOASTS, DE PETITES PIZZAS OU DES ALIMENTS ANALOGUES
Abstract:
(EN) A hermetic sealing assembly for refrigerators in machines for vending prepackaged foodstuffs, such as sandwiches, toasts, small pizzas or the like comprising a sliding plate which is moved in an axial and planar direction by actuation means and is adapted to act as a sealing element for a refrigeration chamber during food storage and as a removable support, during vending, for a stack of metallic containers which contain the prepackaged food to be dispensed. The lowermost container of the stack rests on the plate and can instead fall freely by gravity into a collection seat for vending when the plate is removed by axial movement. Means for temporarily supporting the containers stacked on top of the lowermost container are also provided in the assembly and are associated and synchronized with the plate.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble de fermeture hermétique pour dispositifs frigorifiques se trouvant dans des distributeurs automatiques d'aliments préemballés, tels que des sandwichs, des toasts, de petites pizzas ou des aliments analogues, comprenant un plateau coulissant qui est déplacé en direction axiale et plane par l'actionnement d'un organe. L'ensemble de fermeture hermétique est adapté pour servir d'élément de fermeture d'une chambre frigorifique pendant le stockage d'aliments et de support amovible, pendant la distribution, pour une pile de récipients métalliques contenant l'aliment préemballé à distribuer. Le récipient se trouvant en bas de la pile reste sur le plateau et peut retomber librement sous l'effet de la force de gravité dans un siège de collecte pour la distribution au client, lorsque le plateau est déplacé dans un mouvement axial. Des organes destinés à supporter provisoirement les récipients empilés sur le récipient en bas de la pile sont associés et synchronisés au plateau.
