Title
(EN) A CARBON DIOXIDE PRECOOLING SYSTEM FOR A CARBONATOR
(FR) SYSTEME DE PRE-REFROIDISSEMENT DE GAZ CARBONIQUE POUR GAZEIFICATEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A carbon dioxide precooling system (1), linked with a carbon dioxide source (2) and with a carbonator (3), for aiding in carbonated water formation includes a carbon dioxide line (2') linked with the carbon dioxide source at an inlet and with the carbonator at an outlet. As such, carbon dioxide travels from the carbon dioxide source, across the carbon dioxide line, and to the carbonator. The carbon dioxide precooling system includes a cooling device (6) in cooperative engagement with the carbon dioxide line. The cooling device sufficiently cools the carbon dioxide within the carbon dioxide line prior to entering the carbonator thereby aiding in the formation of carbonated water within the carbonator.
(FR)
L'invention se rapporte à un système de pré-refroidissement (1) de gaz carbonique relié à une source de gaz carbonique (2) et à un gazéificateur (3) et destiné à faciliter la formation d'eau gazéifiée. Ce système de pré-refroidissement comporte un conduit pour le gaz carbonique (2') relié à la source de gaz carbonique au niveau d'un orifice d'entrée et au gazéificateur au niveau d'un orifice de sortie. Le gaz carbonique peut ainsi passer de la source au gazéificateur, en traversant le conduit pour gaz carbonique. Ce système de pré-refroidissement du gaz carbonique comporte un dispositif de refroidissement (6) qui est fonctionnellement couplé audit conduit pour le gaz carbonique. Ledit dispositif de refroidissement refroidit suffisamment le gaz carbonique à l'intérieur du conduit avant sa pénétration dans le gazéificateur, ce qui facilite la formation de l'eau gazéifiée au sein dudit gazéificateur.
