Title (EN) METHOD AND PRODUCT DELIVERY MECHANISM WITH A PUMP
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET MÉCANISME DE DISTRIBUTION DE PRODUITS AVEC UNE POMPE
Abstract:
(EN) A product delivery mechanism for a beverage dispensing system that dispenses flavor/ingredients and ice into a serving cup for mixing and/or blending. The product delivery system includes a gas operated pump for moving the flavor/ingredients from a product source to a dispensing nozzle above the serving cup. A gas restrictor is connected to an exhaust port of the pump to regulate gas flow rate and product flow rate so as to prevent splashing at the cup while operating the pump well within its rated pressure limits.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un mécanisme de distribution de produits pour système de distribution de boissons qui distribue des arômes/ingrédients et de la glace dans un gobelet. Le système de distribution de produits comprend une pompe actionnée par un gaz qui déplace l'arôme/les ingrédients depuis une source vers un embout de distribution au-dessus du gobelet. Un système de restriction du gaz est relié au port d'évacuation de la pompe et régule le débit du gaz et le débit du produit distribué de manière à éviter toute projection au niveau du gobelet lors du fonctionnement de la pompe dans les limites de pression définies.
