Title (EN) VENT ORIFICE AND FILTER FOR BEVERAGE MACHINE
(FR) ORIFICE D’ÉVACUATION ET FILTRE POUR MACHINE À BOISSON
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for venting a liquid supply of a beverage machine, e.g., by permanently open orifice and/or pressure relief valve. The orifice may always vent a heater tank, even while liquid is delivered to the tank by a liquid pump and/or while the tank is pressurized by an air pump to deliver liquid from the tank. A filter may be positioned between a heater tank and orifice and/or air pump. The pressure relief valve may be positioned between the liquid pump and the inlet side of the heater tank, e.g., so relatively cool water is released by the pressure relief valve when open.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant d'évacuer un apport de liquide d'une machine à boisson, par exemple, par un orifice ouvert en permanence et/ou une soupape de sécurité. L'orifice peut toujours évacuer un réservoir de chauffage, même pendant que le liquide est distribué vers le réservoir par une pompe à liquide et/ou pendant que le réservoir est mis sous pression par une pompe à air pour distribuer le liquide provenant du réservoir. Un filtre peut être positionné entre un réservoir de chauffage et un orifice et/ou une pompe à air. La soupape de sécurité peut être positionnée entre la pompe à liquide et le côté entrée du réservoir de chauffage, par exemple, de telle sorte que de l'eau relativement fraîche soit libérée par la soupape de sécurité en position ouverte.
