Title (EN) METHOD FOR DISPENSING A LIQUID INTO A CONTAINER AND RELATED DISPENSER
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE DISTRIBUTION D'UN LIQUIDE DANS UN RÉCIPIENT ET DISTRIBUTEUR ASSOCIÉ
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a method for dispensing a liquid to fill a container (4) up to a predetermined liquid level. The invention also refers to a dispenser capable of achieving such a method. A method for dispensing a liquid (2, 22) in a container (4) according to the invention is characterized by a combination of the following steps: (a) place a container (4) beneath an outlet (6, 26a, 26b ) of at least one fluid dispensing conduit (3, 23a, 23b); (b) arrange a pair of electrodes (9, 13, 9a, 13a, 29, 213) in a position where they are adapted to face the this liquid (2), electrically isolated from the same, (c) starting the flow of liquid through the the conduit (3); (d) measuring the effective impedance (Z) between the first and second electrode (9, 13; 9a, 13a, 29, 213) during the liquid flow; (e) compare the actual impedance (Z) with a reference impedance (Z1); and (f) interrupting the liquid flow when a predetermined condition between the effective impedance (Z) and the reference impedance (Z1) is achieved.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de distribution d'un liquide pour remplir un récipient (4) jusqu'à un niveau prédéterminé de liquide. L'invention concerne également un distributeur capable de mettre en œuvre un tel procédé. Le procédé de distribution de liquide (2, 22) dans un récipient (4) selon l'invention est caractérisé par une combinaison des étapes suivantes : (a) le placement d'un récipient (4) au-dessous d'un orifice de sortie (6, 26a, 26b) d'au moins un conduit de distribution de fluide (3, 23a, 23b); (b) la disposition d'une paire d'électrodes (9, 13, 9a, 13a, 29, 213) à un emplacement où elles se retrouvent en face de ce liquide (2), tout en étant électriquement isolées de ce dernier, (c) l'initiation de l'écoulement du liquide à travers le conduit (3); (d) la mesure de l'impédance effective (Z) entre la première et seconde électrode (9, 13; 9a, 13a, 29, 213) pendant l'écoulement du liquide; (e) la comparaison de l'impédance réelle (Z) avec une impédance de référence (Z1); et (f) l'interruption de l'écoulement du liquide quand une condition prédéterminée entre l'impédance effective (Z) et l'impédance de référence (Z1) est atteinte.
