Title (EN) BEVERAGE MACHINE WITH THERMOELECTRIC COOLER, HEAT PIPE AND HEAT SINK ARRANGEMENT
(FR) MACHINE À BOISSONS DOTÉE D'UN REFROIDISSEUR THERMOÉLECTRIQUE, AGENCEMENT DE TUYAU CALORIFÈRE ET DISSIPATEUR THERMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A beverage making machine having a tank (6) may be arranged to carbonate and/or chill liquid in the tank. A thermoelectric device (75) may be thermally coupled to the tank to cool precursor liquid in the tank, and a heat pipe (76) may transfer heat from the thermoelectric device to a heat sink (77). The heat sink may be located remotely from the thermoelectric device, e.g., in an air duct that helps prevent contact of moisture, dirt, etc. in the duct with the thermoelectric device.
(FR) L'invention concerne une machine servant à préparer des boissons, machine ayant un réservoir (6) et pouvant être agencée de manière à gazéifier et/ou à refroidir un liquide dans le réservoir. Un dispositif thermoélectrique (75) peut être couplé thermiquement au réservoir à des fins de refroidissement d'un liquide précurseur dans le réservoir, et un tuyau calorifère (76) peut transférer de la chaleur du dispositif thermoélectrique (77) à un dissipateur thermique. Le dissipateur thermique peut être situé à distance par rapport au dispositif thermoélectrique, par exemple, dans un conduit d'air qui aide à empêcher tout contact avec l'humidité, les saletés, etc. dans la conduite avec le dispositif thermoélectrique.
