Title
(EN) FROTH WAND FOR ESPRESSO MAKER
(FR) ÉMULSIONNEUR POUR MACHINE À EXPRESSO
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention is a froth wand for an espresso machine that can generate a high velocity stream of steam to foam a beverage at the beverage brewing apparatus. The wand includes an adapter for attaching to the beverage brewing machine at a steam supply outlet, and a conduit for communicating the steam to a steam tube. The steam tube has a cylindrical body with an annular recessed exit, and is surrounded by a cylindrical sheath. The sheath includes a cylindrical plug with a small longitudinal aperture that fits into the outlet of the steam tube. The mating of the sheath's plug and the steam tube forces the steam through the aperture, accelerating the steam at the exit.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un émulsionneur pour une machine à expresso qui peut produire un courant haute vitesse de vapeur pour faire mousser une boisson au niveau de l'appareil de préparation de boisson. L'émulsionneur comprend un adaptateur permettant de l'attacher à la machine de préparation de boisson au niveau d'une sortie d'alimentation en vapeur, et une conduite pour faire passer la vapeur jusqu'à un tube à vapeur. Le tube à vapeur a un corps cylindrique avec une sortie annulaire en creux et est entouré par une gaine cylindrique. La gaine comprend une prise cylindrique avec une petite ouverture longitudinale qui s'insère dans la sortie du tube à vapeur. L'accouplement de la prise de la gaine et du tube à vapeur force la vapeur au travers de l'ouverture, ce qui accélère la vapeur à la sortie.
