Title (EN) MACHINE FOR DISPENSING BEVERAGES FROM A POD, COMPRISING A DEVICE FOR THE SYNCHRONISED INJECTION OF TWO VOLUMES OF AIR
(FR) MACHINE DE DISTRIBUTION DE BOISSONS A PARTIR D'UN POD, EQUIPEE D'UN DISPOSITIF D'INJECTION SYNCHRONISEE DE DEUX VOLUMES D'AIR
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a machine for dispensing beverages from a pod (4) comprising at least two cavities (8a, 8b), each cavity containing a volume (VI1, VI2) of ingredients forming part of the composition of the beverage. The machine comprises an air injection device (19) configured to supply at least two volumes of air (Va1, Va2) in a synchronised manner, said volumes of air being adapted respectively to the volumes of ingredients in each of the cavities. The air injection device allows the ingredients to be discharged steadily from the cavities, so that they can be transferred gradually into a mixing chamber in the pod (4) throughout the preparation of the beverage, thereby allowing the ingredients to be diluted homogeneously with water in the mixing chamber, and said homogeneous mixture being released gradually into a container. Since the volumes of air supplied are adapted to the volumes of ingredients in the cavities all of the ingredients are discharged.
(FR) L'invention concerne une machine de distribution de boissons à partir d'un pod (4) qui comporte au moins deux cavités (8a, 8b) contenant chacune un volume (VI1, VI2) d'ingrédients entrant dans la composition de la boisson. La machine comprend un dispositif d'injection d'air (19) configuré pour délivrer de manière synchronisée au moins deux volumes d'air (Va1, Va2) adaptés respectivement aux volumes des ingrédients, dans les cavités. La présence d'un tel dispositif d'injection d'air permet de chasser de manière constante les ingrédients présents dans les cavités afin de les transférer progressivement dans une chambre de mélange du pod (4) durant toute la préparation de la boisson, ce qui permet une dilution homogène des ingrédients avec de l'eau dans cette chambre de mélange, ledit mélange homogène s'évacuant au fur et à mesure dans un conteneur. La délivrance de volumes d'air adaptés aux volumes des ingrédients garantit de chasser toutes les quantités des ingrédients.
