具有可调节搁架的饮料冲调机
[0001]相关申请的交叉引用
[0002]本申请要求于2015年10月5日提交的申请序列号为62/237,301的美国专利申请的 优先权,其全部公开内容通过引用并入本文。
技术领域
[0003] 本发明涉及一种用于冲调诸如茶或咖啡等饮料的冲调机,且更特别地,涉及一种 用于在冲调机的冲调篮的下方支撑各种大小的容器的可调节搁架。
背景技术
[0004] 在普通的冲调机中,冲调篮将一些茶、研磨咖啡或类似饮料组分保持在喷头下方。 冲调机包括管道系统,在该系统中从水箱(或从另一水源)抽取水。当水被从水箱中抽取并 进入热水箱时,热水被迫从热水箱进入喷头。喷头将热水分洒到一些茶、研磨咖啡或类似饮 料组分上并浸透该一些茶、研磨咖啡或类似饮料组分中,冲调饮料通过出口孔(或排水孔) 分配到杯子或类似容器中。
[0005]在食品服务行业中,需要及时供应高品质冲调饮料。因为顾客可能在一天中不定 时和不定量地需要这种饮料,因此有必要按需提供大量的新鲜饮料。同时,需要在餐厅或其 它位置的多个位置处提供饮料分配能力,以便使服务员或其它侍者不需要返回冲调机而取 得新鲜的饮料。
[0006]因此,咖啡冲调机的制造商开发了“卫星”冲调系统。在这种系统中,饮料在中央冲 调机中进行冲调,然后在诸如瓮、梭(shuttle)、壶或其它容器的分开且便携式分配容器中 运输到各个适当的位置,在该位置处,饮料可以通过食品从业人员或顾客进行分配以供消 费。因此,这种中央冲调机需要能够适应各种大小的容器。例如,不希望瓮、梭、壶或其它容 器的顶部与冲调篮相距太远,因为这样会导致饮料泼溅或溢出的可能性增加。相反地,最佳 的是将瓮、梭、壶或其它容器的上部开口直接设置在冲调篮的出口孔的下方。
发明内容
[0007]本发明是一种具有用于适应各种大小的瓮、梭、壶或其它容器的可调节搁架的饮 料冲调机。
[0008]根据本发明制成的示例性冲调机包括壳体以及冲调篮,该冲调篮选择性地安装并 固定到壳体上,并且将一些茶、研磨咖啡或类似饮料组分保持在安装在壳体内的喷头的下 方。与现有技术的冲调机结构一样,冲调机还包括管道系统,在该系统中从水箱(或从另一 水源)抽取水。当水被从水箱中抽取并进入热水箱时,热水被迫从热水箱进入喷头。喷头将 热水分洒到冲调篮中保持的一些茶、研磨咖啡或类似饮料组分上并浸透该一些茶、研磨咖 啡或类似饮料组分,冲调饮料通过出口孔(或排水孔)分配到杯子或类似容器中。
[0009]根据本发明制成的示例性冲调机还包括可调节搁架。在一个示例性实施例中,可 调节搁架通常包括具有平台的框架,该平台安装到框架并由框架支撑。框架包括下部,该下 部限定用作平台支撑的基本水平的平面。该框架进一步包括被设置成彼此相距间隔距离的 第一臂和第二臂。这些第一臂和第二臂从下部的后部向上并相对于由下部限定的基本水平 的平面倾斜地延伸。最后,框架包括上部,该上部具有大致c形,并且连接第一臂和第二臂的 末端。框架的该上部还限定了基本水平的平面,该平面通常平行于由框架的下部限定的基 本水平的平面,并且位于基本水平的平面上方。
[0010] 由于这种结构,框架的上部环绕并接合冲调机的壳体的后表面。第一臂和第二臂 之间的距离与冲调机壳体的宽度基本相同,使得第一臂和第二臂被设置为抵靠壳体的侧表 面,而框架的下部被设置并有效地从壳体的前表面延伸。由于这种结构,施加到由框架支撑 的平台上的力(即,平台上的一个或多个瓮、梭、壶或其它容器的重量)通过第一臂和第二臂 转化,并且通过框架的上部与冲调机的壳体的后表面的接合而抵消。
[0011] 此外,在一些实施例中,存在多对对齐的孔,所述孔通过壳体的后表面限定并且相 对于基部具有预定高度。框架包括通过框架的上部限定的对应孔。因此,可以通过将螺钉 (或类似的紧固件)插入通过框架的上部限定的孔并且然后进入通过壳体的后表面限定的 孔中所选择的一对孔内而将框架相对于基部固定在所选择的高度处。这样固定了框架的位 置,并防止其滑落冲调机的壳体。
[0012] 因此,本发明的可调节搁架可以安装在壳体上的多个位置处,即可以安装在壳体 的基部与冲调篮之间的多个竖直位置处,并因此允许各种大小的容器直接位于冲调篮出口 孔的下方。

[0018]图6是类似于图5的后部透视图,但示出了用于可调节搁架的框架的交替支撑装 置。
具体实施方式
[0019]本发明是一种具有用于适应各种大小的瓮、梭、壶或其它容器的可调节搁架的饮 料冲调机。
[0020]首先参照图1至图3,根据本发明制成的示例性冲调机10包括壳体20以及冲调篮 40,冲调篮40被选择性地安装并固定到壳体20,并且将一些茶、研磨咖啡或类似饮料组分保 持在安装在壳体2〇中的喷头30的下方。与现有技术的冲调机结构一样,冲调机10还包括管 道系统,在管道系统中从水箱(或从另一水源)抽取水。当水被从水箱中抽取并进入热水箱 时,热水被迫从热水箱进入喷头30。喷头30将热水分洒到冲调篮40中保持的一些茶、研磨咖 啡或类似饮料组分上并浸透该一些茶、研磨咖啡或类似饮料组分,冲调饮料通过出口孔(或 排水孔)41分配到杯子或类似容器中。
[0021]现在具体参照图1,冲调机1〇还包括可调节搁架50,在这种情况下,可调节搁架50 位于壳体20的基部22和冲调篮40之间,并且支撑两个并排的瓮100a、100b。
[0022]在图2中,可调节搁架50被设置为邻近壳体20的基部22以支撑并排且较高的瓮 110a、110b。
[0023]在图3中,可调节搁架5〇再次被设置为壳体20的基部22与冲调篮40之间,但是在这 种情况下,可调节搁架50支撑壶120。
[0024]现在参照图4,可调节搁架50通常包括具有平台70 (如图1、图2、图3和图5所示)的 框架60,该平台70安装到框架6〇并由框架6〇支撑。关于框架60,在该示例性实施例中,框架 60包括下部(形成矩形的三个侧部)62,该下部限定用作平台7〇支撑的基本水平的平面。该 框架60进一步包括被设置成彼此相距间隔的距离山的第一臂64和第二臂66。这些第一臂64 和第二臂66从下部62的后部向上并相对于由下部62限定的基本水平的平面以角度a延伸。 在这种情况下,角度a为大约135°的钝角。最后,框架60包括上部68,该上部68具有大致C形, 并且连接第一臂M和第二臂明的末端。框架60的该上部68还限定了基本水平的平面,该平 面通常平行于由框架6〇的下部62限定的基本水平的平面,并且位于该基本水平的平面上 方。
[0025]由于这种结构,可能如图5最佳所示,框架60的上部68环绕并接合冲调机10的壳体 20的后表面20a。第一臂64和第二臂明之间的距离cU与冲调机10的壳体20的宽度W1基本相 同,使得第一臂64和第二臂66被设置为抵靠壳体20的侧表面,而框架60的下部62被设置并 且从壳体20的前表面20b有效地延伸。由于这种结构,施加到由框架60支撑的平台70的力 (即,平台70上的一个或多个瓮、梭、壶或其它容器的重量)通过第一臂64和第二臂66转化, 并且通过框架60的上部68与冲调机10的壳体20的后表面20a的接合而抵消。
[0026]如图5所示,在该示例性实施例中,存在多对对齐的孔24a、24b、25a、25b、26a、26b、 27a、27b,这些孔在相对于基部22的预定高度处通过壳体20的后表面20a限定。如图4所示, 框架60包括通过框架60的上部68限定的对应的孔60a、60b。因此,再次参照图5,可以通过将 螺钉74a、74b (或类似的紧固件)插入通过框架60的上部68限定的孔60a、60b并且然后进入 通过壳体20的后表面20a限定的孔24&、2扑、25&、2513、263、2613、27&、2713中的所选择的一对 孔内而将框架60相对于基部固定在所选择的高度处。这样固定了框架60的位置,并防止其 滑落冲调机10的壳体20。
[0027] 现在参照图6,在可选实施例中,存在相对于基部22以预定高度从壳体20的后表面 20a 延伸的多对对齐的挡块 124a、124b、125a、125b、126a、126b、127a、127b。因此,框架 6〇 可 以被设置在相对于基部22的所选择的高度处,且框架60的上部68搁置在所选择的一对挡块 124a、124b、125a、125b、126a、126b、127a、127b上并由其支撑。此外,在不脱离本发明的实质 和范围的情况下,也可以使用其它形式的附接或支撑来固定框架60相对于基部22的高度。 [0028]因此,本发明的可调节搁架5〇可以安装在壳体20上的多个位置处,即可以安装在 壳体的基部22与冲调篮40之间的多个竖直位置处,并因此允许各种大小的容器直接位于冲 调篮40的出口孔41的下方。其次,如上所述,在图1中,可调节搁架50位于壳体2〇的基部22和 冲调篮40的中间,并且支承两个并排的瓮l〇〇a、100b。在图2中,可调节搁架5〇被设置为邻近 壳体20的基部22以支撑并排且较高的瓮ll〇a、110b。在图3中,可调节搁架5〇再次位于壳体 20的基部22与冲调篮4〇之间,但是在这种情况下,该可调下搁架50支撑壶120。
[0029]本领域的普通技术人员将认识到的是,在不脱离本发明的教导的情况下其它实施 例是可能的。由于这种详细描述,特别是这里公开的示例性实施例的具体细节,主要是为了 清楚理解而给出的,并且理解不需要受到不必要的限制,因而本领域技术人员在阅读本公 开时,修改彳較觀而舰,并且可以在不麟本发鴨实质或顏_况下进行修改。
