Abstract
(EN)
An automated heating and/or foaming apparatus and a method for heating and/or foaming a liquid are disclosed. The apparatus includes a stage, a liquid sensor, a measuring sensor, and a steam pipe. The stage is configured to support a container holding a consumable liquid. The liquid sensor is configured to recognize a type of the consumable liquid. The measuring sensor is configured to detect a surface level of the consumable liquid. The steam pipe includes a nozzle configured to inject water vapor or compressed gas into the consumable liquid to heat and/or foam the consumable liquid. A position of the nozzle in the consumable liquid relative to the surface level of the consumable liquid is adjusted based on the type and/or volume of the consumable liquid detected by the consumable liquid sensor and/or measuring sensor.

L'invention concerne un appareil de formation de mousse et/ou de chauffage automatisés et un procédé de formation de mousse et/ou de chauffage d'un liquide. L'appareil comprend un étage, un capteur de liquide, un capteur de mesure et un tuyau de vapeur d'eau. L'étage est conçu pour supporter un récipient contenant un liquide consommable. Le capteur de liquide est configuré pour reconnaître un type de liquide consommable. Le capteur de mesure est configuré pour détecter un niveau de surface du liquide consommable. Le tuyau de vapeur d'eau comprend une buse conçue pour injecter de la vapeur d'eau ou du gaz comprimé dans le liquide consommable pour chauffer et/ou faire mousser le liquide consommable. Une position de la buse dans le liquide consommable par rapport au niveau de surface du liquide consommable est ajustée sur la base du type et/ou du volume du liquide consommable détecté par le capteur de liquide consommable et/ou le capteur de mesure.
