Title (EN) INSULATING STRUCTURE WITH AN INSULATING ELEMENT AND THE METHOD FOR THEIR FORMATION
(FR) STRUCTURE ISOLANTE DOTÉE D'ÉLÉMENT ISOLANT ET PROCÉDÉ POUR LEUR FABRICATION
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. Insulating powder material is disposed substantially throughout the insulating cavity. An insulating gas is disposed within the insulating cavity, wherein the insulating powder material is combined with the insulating gas and cooperatively defines a suspended state and a precipitated state. The suspended state is defined by the insulating gas in motion and the insulating powder material being in an aeolian suspension within the insulating gas while in motion. The precipitated state is defined by the insulating gas being in a deposition state and the insulating powder material being precipitated from the insulating gas and deposited within the insulating cavity.
(FR) L'invention concerne une structure isolante pour un appareil ménager, la structure comprenant une armoire comportant une enveloppe externe et un revêtement interne, une cavité isolante étant définie entre ces derniers. Un matériau poudreux isolant est disposé sensiblement dans toute la cavité isolante. Un gaz isolant est disposé à l'intérieur de la cavité isolante, le matériau poudreux isolant se combinant avec le gaz isolant et définissant de manière coopérative un état suspendu et un état précipité. L'état suspendu est défini par le gaz isolant en mouvement, le matériau poudreux isolant étant en suspension éolienne dans le gaz isolant en mouvement. L'état précipité est défini par le gaz isolant dans un état de dépôt, le matériau poudreux isolant ayant précipité à partir du gaz isolant et se déposant à l'intérieur de la cavité isolante.
