Title
(EN) IMPROVEMENTS RELATING TO COOLING DEVICES
(FR) PERFECTIONNEMENTS PORTANT SUR DES DISPOSITIFS DE REFROIDISSEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A cooling device for a potable, and in particular, a carbonated liquid, comprising a cooling chamber (6) and cooling means to retain a quantity of said liquid in the chamber in frozen condition. In particular, located within the chamber (6) is a cylindrical wall (8), providing an inner chamber (9). Extending adjacent to the outer wall is a cooling coil (12a), whilst a cooling coil (12b) extends adjacent to the cylindrical wall (8), through which coils refrigerant is pumped. The chamber (6) forms part of a circuit (40), by which liquid is drawn from the chamber through a dispensing head, the circuit returning to the chamber (6), the dispensing head providing means by which liquid may be drawn from the device. Part at least of the liquid returning to the chamber is delivered to the inner chamber (9), to ensure that the liquid is thoroughly cooled before returning to the main body of liquid within the chamber (6), to ensure that liquid exiting the chamber into the circuit is at a desired low temperature.
(FR)
Ce dispositif de refroidissement, destiné à un liquide potable, et notamment à un liquide gazeux, comprend une chambre de refroidissement (6) ainsi que des moyens de refroidissement destinés à retenir une certaine de quantité dudit liquide dans la chambre, à l'état congelé. On a notamment placé dans la chambre (6) une paroi cylindrique (8) constituant une chambre intérieure (9). On a monté, de manière adjacente à la paroi extérieure, un serpentin de refroidissement (12a) tandis qu'on a monté, de manière adjacente à la paroi cylindriq ue (8), un autre serpentin de refroidissement (12b, à travers lesquels le réfrigérant est pompé. La chambre (6) fait partie d'un circuit (40) dans lequel le liquide est soutiré à partir de la chambre, par l'intermédiaire d'une tête de distribution, le circuit retournant ensuite à la chambre (6), la tête de distribution constituant des moyens de soutirage du liquide à partir du dispositif. Au moins une partie du liquide retournant dans la chambre est distribué dans la chambre intérieure (9), afin de permettre que le liquide soit totalement refroidi avant de retourner dans le réservoir principal de liquide situé dans la chambre (6), et que le liquide sortant de la chambre et pénétrant dans le circuit soit à la température basse voulue.
