Title (EN) INSULATION ELEMENT AND METHOD OF PLACEMENT IN ITS INSULATION MATERIAL
(FR) ÉLÉMENT ISOLANT ET PROCÉDÉ POUR PLACER LEDIT ÉLÉMENT DANS SON MATÉRIAU ISOLANT
Abstract:
(EN) An insulation structure for an appliance includes a cabinet having an outer wrapper and an inner liner, with an insulating cavity defined therebetween. A plurality of hollow insulating organic/inorganic spheres is disposed within the insulating cavity, wherein a secondary insulating volume is defined between the plurality of hollow insulating organic/inorganic spheres and an interior surface of the cabinet. The interior surface of the cabinet defines the insulating cavity. An insulating fill material is disposed within the secondary insulating volume, wherein the insulating fill material and the plurality of hollow insulating organic/inorganic spheres define a substantially uniform insulating material.
(FR) L'invention concerne une structure isolante pour un appareil, qui comprend une caisse possédant une enveloppe extérieure et une cuve entre lesquelles une cavité isolante est définie. Une pluralité de sphères organiques/inorganiques isolantes creuses sont placées à l'intérieur de la cavité isolante, un volume isolant secondaire étant défini entre la pluralité de sphères organiques/inorganiques isolantes creuses et une surface intérieure de la caisse. La surface intérieure de la caisse définit la cavité isolante. Un matériau de remplissage isolant est placé à l'intérieur du volume isolant secondaire, le matériau de remplissage isolant et la pluralité de sphères organiques/inorganiques isolantes creuses définissant un matériau isolant sensiblement uniforme.
