Title (EN) HOPPER FOR SMOKING ARTICLES
(FR) TRÉMIE POUR ARTICLES À FUMER
Abstract:
(EN) The invention elates to a hopper (1) for smoking articles (S), comprising: an inlet portion (10), for the inlet of smoking articles (S) into the hopper (1); at least an output mouth (B), comprising a plurality of ducts (V), each duct (V) having an inlet (2) and an outlet (20); and a connection portion (3), connecting the inlet portion (10) with the ducts (V) of the output mouth (B) and comprising two lateral walls (30) opposed each other, against which the smoking articles (S) abut and along which the smoking articles (S) flow falls in an output direction (D) toward the output mouth (B). The hopper (1) further comprises a plurality of agitating elements (4), positioned at the inlet (2) of the ducts (V), which receive on them, by gravity, the smoking articles (S) flow; each agitating element (4) being movable with respect to one of its axes for facilitating the smoking articles (S) fall from the connecting portion (3) toward the outlets of the ducts (V), In particular, the hopper (1) comprises at least an unloading element (5), disposed at the connection portion (3), upstream with respect to the agitating elements (4) in the output direction (D); the unloading element (5) being shaped in such a way to receive the smoking articles (S) flow during their fall, and unloading the plurality of agitating elements (4) from the weight of the smoking articles (S) flow.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une trémie (1) pour articles à fumer (S), comprenant : une partie entrée (10), pour l'entrée d'articles à fumer (S) dans la trémie (1) ; au moins une bouche de sortie (B), comprenant une pluralité de conduits (V), chaque conduit (V) ayant une entrée (2) et une sortie (20) ; et une partie de raccordement (3), raccordant la partie entrée (10) aux conduits (V) de la bouche de sortie (B) et comprenant deux parois latérales (30) opposées l'une à l'autre, contre lesquelles les articles à fumer (S) butent et le long desquelles le flux d'articles à fumer (S) tombe dans une direction de sortie (D) vers la bouche de sortie (B). La trémie (1) comprend en outre une pluralité d'éléments agitateurs (4), positionnés à l'entrée (2) des conduits (V), qui reçoivent, par gravité, le flux d'articles à fumer (S), chaque élément agitateur (4) étant mobile par rapport à l'un de ses axes pour faciliter la chute des articles à fumer (S) de la partie de raccordement (3) vers les sorties des conduits (V). En particulier, la trémie (1) comprend au moins un élément de déchargement (5), disposé au niveau de la partie de raccordement (3), en amont par rapport aux éléments agitateurs (4) dans la direction de sortie (D), l'élément de déchargement (5) étant formé de manière à recevoir le flux d'articles à fumer (S) pendant leur chute, et à décharger la pluralité d'éléments agitateurs (4) en se basant sur le poids du flux d'articles à fumer (S).
