Title
(EN) THERMAL MASS IN A SOLID-PRODUCTION SYSTEM
(FR) MASSE THERMIQUE DANS UN SYSTÈME DE PRODUCTION DE SOLIDES
Abstract
(EN)
A solid-production system for producing a solid (1700) on demand is disclosed herein. In some aspects, the solid-production system includes a cooling block (102, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, 2603) arranged to interact with one or more fluid molds (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705) to reduce a first temperature of a fluid dispensed in each of the one or more fluid molds (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705) to a second temperature, the second temperature being lower than the first temperature, to solidify the fluid in each of the one or more fluid molds (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705); wherein the cooling block (102, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, 2603) has a thermal mass operable to absorb and store thermal energy transferred by the fluid in each of the one or more fluid molds (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705) so as to reduce the first temperature of the fluid to the second temperature.

L'invention concerne un système de production de solide pour produire un solide (1700) à la demande. Selon certains aspects, le système de production de solide comprend un bloc de refroidissement (102, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, 2603) agencé pour interagir avec un ou plusieurs moules à fluide (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705) pour réduire une première température d'un fluide distribué dans chacun du ou des moules à fluide (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705) à une seconde température, la seconde température étant inférieure à la première température, pour solidifier le fluide dans chacun du ou des moules de fluide (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705) ; le bloc de refroidissement (102, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, 2603) ayant une masse thermique utilisable pour absorber et stocker l'énergie thermique transférée par le fluide dans chacun du ou des moules à fluide (2200, 2202, 2602, 2705) de façon à réduire la première température du fluide à la seconde température.
