Title
(EN) CARBONATION APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR FORMING A CARBONATED BEVERAGE
(FR) APPAREIL DE CARBONATATION ET PROCÉDÉ DE FORMATION D'UNE BOISSON GAZÉIFIÉE
Abstract
(EN)
An inline carbonation apparatus (910) includes a fluid tube (15) having an inner diameter (29). A water flow control module (950) is connected to a water source(30). At least one water orifice (25) is linked to the water flow control module (950) and is attached at one end of the fluid tube (15). The water orifice (25) includes a plurality of holes atomizing water passing therethrough. A carbon dioxide source (50) is connected to a carbon dioxide valve. The carbon dioxide solenoid valve is connected to a carbon dioxide regulator that is coupled to a carbon dioxide orifice (45) and attached to the fluid tube (15) in a spaced relationship from the water orifice (25). The atomized water has a pressure less than the carbon dioxide such that carbon dioxide is absorbed into the water forming carbonated water having a specified volume of carbonation. The water control module (950) regulates a water flow rate into the inline carbonation apparatus (910).

Un appareil de carbonatation en ligne (910) comprend un tuyau de fluide (15) présentant un diamètre interne (29). Un module de commande d'écoulement d'eau (950) est relié à une source d'eau (30). Au moins un orifice d'eau (25) est lié au module de commande d'écoulement d'eau (950) et est attaché à une extrémité du tube fluide (15). L'orifice d'eau (25) comprend une pluralité de trous atomisant l'eau passant à travers ceux-ci. Une source de dioxyde de carbone (50) est reliée à une vanne de dioxyde de carbone. La vanne à solénoïde de dioxyde de carbone est reliée à un régulateur de dioxyde de carbone qui est couplé à un orifice de dioxyde de carbone (45) et attaché au tuyau de fluide (15) dans une relation espacée de l'orifice d'eau (25). L'eau atomisée présente une pression inférieure au dioxyde de carbone de sorte que le dioxyde de carbone soit absorbé dans l'eau formant de l'eau gazéifiée ayant un volume spécifié de carbonatation. Le module de commande d'eau (950) régule une vitesse de flux d'eau dans l'appareil de carbonatation en ligne (910).
