Description

  • The invention relates to a device for producing a Brühgetränkes by extracting a portion capsule, with at least two parts and a cavity for receiving the portion capsule enclosing brewing chamber with receiving element and closure element, wherein the receiving element and the closure element by means of a handle between a relatively spaced loading position for receiving the Portionskapsel and a cavity with the portion capsule therein closing brewing position are movable, and with at least one support member for holding the portion capsule in the loading position.
  • Devices for making a brewed beverage by extracting a portion capsule are known in practice and by the literature in a variety of ways. In fact, the usually used portion capsule is characterized by the fact that in her coffee or tea leaves or tea flour or generally a drink dose is stored. The portion capsule itself is usually formed closed and can be made of plastic, aluminum or a laminate. As a housing forms for the portion capsule mainly frustoconical structures have proven to be favorable, although of course other housing forms in, for example, cylindrical design or in spherical form are conceivable and are included.
  • In order to extract the beverage dose located inside the portion capsule, the portion capsule is generally perforated on one end side, while hot water is supplied through another end side. This process or brewing takes place in the closed brewing chamber as soon as the portion capsule has been received in the cavity provided for it.
  • After the hot water has penetrated over the one end face in the portion capsule, the beverage dose is brewed inside the portion capsule. The thus extracted Brühgetränk leaves now on the other perforated front side of the portion capsule and is then available for further processing or for immediate enjoyment.
  • The DE 603 00 775 T2 describes such a device in which the at least one support element for holding the portion capsule in the loading position is designed as a stop on the brewing chamber or the receiving element or closure element. Because one of these two parts is rotatably mounted to bring the portion capsule into abutment. This requires a relatively complicated kinematics, because the rotatably mounted part is additionally moved translationally or must be moved to open the brewing chamber or close.
  • The likewise generic prior art after the EP 2 490 579 B1 This is done so that a holding element is provided for holding the portion capsule in the loading position. In this case, the holding element is designed such that, due to the movement of the closure element from the loading position into an extraction position, an orientation of the portion capsule essentially takes place in the direction of the receiving element through the holding element. In this way, a safer and more comfortable filling with portion capsules than previously guaranteed and also a cost-effective production with simple installation and universal use are provided.
  • The EP 2 490 579 B1 works with relatively few components. However, the alignment of the portion capsule by means of the holding element and by the movement of the closure element from the loading position into the extraction position takes place. Here, tilting of the portion capsule, malpositions etc. are not excluded with the utmost security.
  • In a comparable prior art according to the DE 600 13 305 T2 Total work is done in a vertical plane. For this purpose, a receiving element for the portion capsule performs a movement in the vertical plane. The receiving element is a tray for loading the portion capsule into which the portion capsule is inserted by an operator. After the brewing process, the capsule must be manually removed, which is not particularly easy to use.
  • The finally still to be called state of the art after the EP 2 077 087 B1 deals with an automatic ejector for capsules in a coffee machine. In this case, two claws are provided which seal each with two sides of the receiving element or closure element. The front portion of each claw forms a boundary part which can be spread and closed. Also in this case, work is done with a relatively complicated mechanism.
  • The invention is based on the technical problem of further developing such a device for producing a brewing beverage in such a way that a mechanically simple design and easy-to-use variant is provided, which also functions reliably.
  • To solve this technical problem is provided in a generic device for producing a Brühgetränkes by extracting a portion capsule in the invention that the handle in addition to the brewing chamber acts on the support element at least to take a closed and the portion capsule in the loading position supporting position. In addition, and otherwise, the handle may further be adapted to take an open and the portion capsule releasing position of the support element. In most cases, the open and the cap capsule releasing position automatically, for example, spring-assisted, taken. Of course, the handle can also provide for the taking of the open and the portion capsule releasing position as described.
  • As already explained, the brewing chamber is composed at least of the two parts, namely the receiving element and the closure element. The receiving element and the closure element are thereby moved by means of the handle between the relatively spaced loading position and the brewing position, in which the receiving element and the closure element abut each other and have no distance. The loading position serves to accommodate the portion capsule. In the brewing position, the portion capsule is located in the cavity and the brewing chamber is closed, so that subsequently the brewing process already described can take place.
  • For this purpose, the receiving element is usually equipped with one or more thorns, which provide for the perforation of the portion capsule at their mostly head-side end face. In contrast, the closure element regularly has a single mandrel, which penetrates the foot-side end face of the portion capsule in the brewing position. The portion capsule is usually frusto-conical designed with the larger head-side front side compared to the other hand, smaller foot-side end. Of course, this is only an example and not restrictive.
  • In order to keep the technological effort as low as possible, the receiving element and the closure element can usually only move translationally. That is, an additional rotational movement does not take place and is not intended. For the sake of ease of operation and production is also usually worked in that the receiving element is fixed and in contrast, only the closure element performs the already mentioned relative movements. That is, the loading position corresponds to that the closure element is moved in translation relative to the fixed receiving element in order to specify the distance corresponding to the loading position. In this loading position the portion capsule is introduced.
  • So that the portion capsule is held and supported in this process, the support element is provided according to the invention, which supports the portion capsule at least in the loading position in question. This is ensured by the handle, which controls the support element to take its closed position.
  • If, starting from this loading position, the closure element is then moved towards the receiving element which is stationary in relation to it, then, following the loading position, the closure element ensures that the portion capsule is received and supported in the closure element. That is, at this time, the support element with its supporting effect is no longer regularly required, which therefore passes into the open position or can pass.
  • While the receiving element is designed like a disk, the closure element typically has a pot-like shape whose outer circumference is adapted to the outer casing shape of the portion capsule. As a result, the closure element predominantly defines the cavity in the interior of the brewing chamber, which encloses the portion capsule in the brewing position.
  • With the help of the handle, the closure element is now moved translationally or purely translationally to the otherwise fixed disc-like receiving element in the transition from the loading position to the brewing position. In the brewing position, the closure element rests against the receiving element with its head-side edge and the closed hollow chamber enclosing the portion capsule is observed in the brewing chamber. Now the brewing process can be started.
  • After completion of the brewing process, the closure element is removed by means of the handle of the fixed receiving element. In this operation, since the support member has kept its open position unchanged, the portion capsule may, for example, fall down gravity-assisted because the closure member has been removed from the receiving member in this process.
  • Only when the handle reaches its fully open position, this functional position ensures that the support element is transferred from its open position and the cap capsule releasing position in the closed position and the portion capsule supporting position. Now the loading position is reached (again) and the device can with a subsequent portion capsule in turn be equipped.
  • All of these operations can be controlled and specified purely manually by an operator, solely with the help of the (single) handle. For the handle according to the invention provides not only for the relative spacing of the receiving element of the closure element in the loading position and the intake of the cavity with the portion capsule therein occluding brewing position, but also that the support element at least to take the closed and the portion capsule in the Loading position supporting position is applied. As a result, the handle has a universal and only operating function without requiring further operating elements for the handling of the capsule.
  • Here, the invention proceeds from the further realization that the open position of the support element, which at the same time releases the portion capsule, is typically taken automatically and is present and observed until the closed position of the support element is actuated with the aid of the handle. This usually only happens when the handle is fully open.
  • As a result, the mechanical and therefore technological effort compared to the previous embodiments is significantly reduced. In addition, malfunctions can be virtually ruled out, because first of all the closure element is moved (exclusively) translationally and predominantly in the horizontal direction onto the receiving element. That is, the relative movement between the receiving element and the closure element takes place in the horizontal direction.
  • In addition, the support element consistently and automatically occupies its open and the portion capsule releasing position. Only then, when the handle is fully opened to transfer the brewing chamber in the loading position, the support element is transferred by means of the handle in the closed position and the portion capsule in this loading position supporting position. For in the loading position, the receiving element and the closure element are spaced from each other and define between them a variable in its size free area.
  • This free area is closed in the loading position downwards by the support element located in the closed position, so that the portion capsule in the loading position by an operator can be easily and easily stored on the support element. Any alignment measures are not required, so that the operation is easy and intuitive.
  • As soon as now the brewing chamber leaves its loading position by the closure element is moved in the example on the receiving element, the support element is opened, because now the portion capsule is received and supported by the closure element. This open position of the support element is maintained during and after the brewing process when opening the brewing chamber, so that the portion capsule gravity assisted leave the open-bottom area and is available for disposal, for example.
  • Only when the handle is transferred in the context of this opening operation in its fully open position, the support member is transferred to its closed position. In the loading position achieved in this way, therefore, the closed support member can support the then aufzunehmende follower capsule for a renewed brewing process. All this is possible without complicated Ausrichtmaßnahmen and without the risk of any tilting of the portion capsule, so that in addition to a simple mechanical structure, a particularly high reliability is observed.
  • According to an advantageous embodiment, the brewing chamber on the one hand and the support element on the other hand (mechanically) designed independently. Nevertheless, the brewing chamber on the one hand and the support element on the other hand acted upon by the common handle, which facilitates the operation.
  • The support member has in detail a support pad and interacting with the handle actuating arm. As a rule, the support support and the actuating arm define a structural unit. Mostly it is a one-piece construction unit. That is, the support pad and the actuating arm are designed in one piece and may be formed, for example, as a common sheet metal / deep-drawing punched part. - In this context, it has further proven when two support elements are provided. The two support elements are arranged mirror-symmetrically compared to a central plane of the entire device.
  • The support support is normally arranged in the free area of the brewing chamber located in the loading position between the spaced-apart receiving element and closure element. That is, the free area extends in the loading position between the receiving element in question and the closure element. In this outdoor area, the support pad is placed. In contrast, the operating arm is at the edge of the outdoor area. In fact, the actuating arm is arranged laterally next to the brewing chamber. In addition, a placement of the actuating arm in the direction of the relative movement between the receiving element and the closure element is recommended.
  • The actuating arm itself can usually rotate about its longitudinal axis. In addition, it has been proven that the actuating arm is biased by means of a spring for taking the open position of the support element. As a result, the spring ensures that the actuating arm consistently and automatically occupies the open position of the support element and pretends. Only when the handle reaches its fully open position, the handle ensures that the actuating arm is transferred against the force of the spring in question from the fully occupied open position of the support element in the closed position of the support element.
  • The support surface of the support element is oriented substantially vertically in the open position of the support element. As a result, the portion capsule, for example, can leave the open area gravity-assisted downwards. Only in the closed position of the support element of the free area is closed at the bottom, because in this case the support support is oriented substantially horizontally. As a result, the portion capsule can be supported in the free area on the support surface. Since most work is done with two support elements, which are regularly arranged symmetrically to each other, a sufficiently large and defined by the two support pads support surface for the portion capsule is provided in the closed position of the support element, so positioned and received in this loading position the portion capsule properly becomes.
  • To take the closed position of the support element, the actuating arm usually performs a quarter turn about its longitudinal axis. In other words, the actuating arm of the support element to take the closed position of the support element and starting from its open position performs a quarter-long rotation. In this process, the actuating arm pivots the support pad from its previously taken in the open position of the support element vertical in the horizontal orientation.
  • To achieve this in detail, the actuating arm has a preferably end-side stop for its longitudinal rotation. The stop can be acted upon by a control pin. In addition, the stop is advantageously designed as an inclined stop. As a result, on the one hand there is the possibility that the usually linearly and horizontally zugestte on the oblique stroke control pin increasingly applied to the oblique impact and the thus observed linear motion of the control pin is converted via the oblique attack in the desired quarter-long rotation of the actuating arm. At the same time, after the end of the application, the oblique stopper ensures that the control pin is moved back by means of the oblique stop and assisted by the spring to act on the actuating arm. As a result, the support element can be spring-assisted and, as it were, automatically transferred to the open position in the connection.
  • The handle ensures, at least in its fully open position, that the control pin is moved against the stop for longitudinal rotation of the actuating arm. At the same time, this functional position corresponds to the fact that the closed position of the support element is taken. For this purpose, the loading position of the brewing chamber, in which the portion capsule is placed in the free space between the receiving element and the closure element on the support support and supported by this. Here are the main benefits.
  • In the following the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to a drawing showing only one exemplary embodiment; show it:
  • 1 a device according to the invention for producing a brewing beverage in the closed state,
  • 2 the object after 1 partially open without portion capsule
  • 3 the device according to the 1 and 2 in fully open condition and in the loading position for receiving a portion capsule,
  • 4 the object after 3 partly closed and
  • 5 the device after 4 during the brewing process.
  • In the figures, an apparatus for producing a Brühgetränkes is shown. In detail, this is a portion capsule 1 extracted. In the portion capsule 1 is in the embodiment and not limiting coffee powder, which following the functional representation according to the 4 in the 5 is brewed. The portion capsule 1 is equipped in the embodiment with a frusto-conical housing.
  • It is during the brewing process, a head-side end face 1a the portion capsule 1 with a larger diameter than a foot-side front 1b on a receiving element 2 at. The receiving element 2 is disc-like and stationary and formed with a plurality of distributed over its surface arranged thorns for opening the portion capsule 1 equipped. The receiving element 2 is of its size and circular surface design ago to the also circular head-side end face 1a the portion capsule 1 customized.
  • The receiving element 2 is stationary and in the exemplary embodiment predominantly vertically in an associated frame 3 arranged the device. In contrast, can be a closure element 4 in the frame in question 3 proceed in a predominantly horizontal direction. The receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 can be moved relative to each other, in the direction of one in the 2 indicated by a double arrow direction R of the relative movement. The direction R of the relative movement coincides with the predominantly horizontal orientation of the frame 3 together.
  • The closure element 4 can now be within the frame 3 move only translationally, in the direction R of the relative movement, that is in the present case in the horizontal direction. In this process, a distance A between the receiving element changes 2 and the closure element 4 , In the same way, the size of a free area 9 between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 changed. In principle, it is also conceivable that instead of the closure element 4 the receiving element 2 is moved. Also, embodiments are within the scope of the invention, in which both the receiving element 2 as well as the closure element 4 be moved together and relative to each other by varying their distance A.
  • The receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 together define a consequently two-part brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 , The brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 is with a cavity 5 for holding the portion capsule 1 equipped. In their brewing close the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 taken together the cavity 5 and the portion capsule contained therein 1 one, leaving the cavity in question 5 (hermetically) is closed. In this brewing position, the brewing beverage is extracted by extracting the portion capsule 1 produced.
  • This is the closure element 4 equipped with an inside mandrel, which is not shown here and in the brewing position after the functional position after the 4 the foot-side front side 1b the portion capsule 1 penetrates. In this way, in the brewing position over the mandrel in question in the closure element 4 hot water in the portion capsule 1 penetration. The in the portion capsule 1 located and usually powdered beverage dose is extracted in this process. As a result thereof in the embodiment of brewed coffee is available, which the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 over the receiving element 2 with the local thorns or via openings in the receiving element 2 leaves.
  • As already described, the receiving element 2 disc-shaped and circular in the embodiment and has a to the portion capsule 1 adapted surface area. Also the closure element 4 is to the portion capsule 1 customized. In fact, the closure element 4 pot-shaped and designed in the example frusto-conical, so that the also frustoconically shaped portion capsule 1 in the closure element 4 can be practically completely absorbed in the brewing position. Only the head end side 1a the portion capsule 1 lies in the brewing position on the receiving element 2 and engages over the closure element 4 in the example collar-like, which is not mandatory.
  • For the previously described translational movement of the closure element 4 in the direction R of the relative movement or according to the embodiment in the horizontal direction provides a handle H. With the help of the handle H, an operator can operate the device completely, namely manually without electric motors. This increases the reliability.
  • In fact, the receiving element can be 2 and the closure element 4 with the help of the handle H between a relatively spaced and in the 3 illustrated loading position for receiving the portion capsule 1 and one the cavity 5 with the portion capsule inside 1 move closing brewing position, as in the transition from the functional position to the 4 to 5 is observed and, in the end, the presentation 1 equivalent. The loading position after the 3 corresponds to a maximum distance A between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 , At the same time corresponds to the fully open handle H. At least in the loading position after the 3 comes a support element 6a . 6b for holding the portion capsule 1 used in the loading position in question.
  • It can be seen that according to the invention, the handle H in addition to the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 the support element in question 6a . 6b at least for taking a closed and the portion capsule 1 acted upon in the loading position supporting position. That is, the handle H comes in accordance with the invention a dual functionality. First of all, the handle H ensures that the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 opened and closed can be. For this purpose, the distance A between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 increased or decreased. As in the embodiment, the receiving element 2 Fixed and rigid with the frame 3 is connected, the handle H works exclusively translationally on the closure element 4 ,
  • This is a Umlenkhebelanordnung 7 provided, which the pivotal movement of the handle H in the already described translational movement of the closure element 4 in the horizontal direction or in the direction R of the relative movement. For this purpose, the handle H is on the one hand articulated to the frame 3 connected and on the other hand via two lateral arms 8th with the closure element 4 articulated. In any case, the pivoting movement of the handle H in the desired translational movement of the closure element 4 implemented in this way in the direction of the receiving element 2 is moved when depressing the handle H and the receiving element 2 leaves as soon as the handle H is raised.
  • In addition to this described loading of the closure element 4 and consequently the two-part brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 Overall, the handle H acts on the already mentioned support element 6a . 6b , The application of the support element 6a . 6b by the handle H takes at least to take the in the 3 illustrated closed position of the support element 6a . 6b , In this closed position of the support element 6a . 6b is the support element in question 6a . 6b at the same time capable of serving the portion capsule 1 to be able to support. For this corresponds the loading position. At the same time this includes the fully open handle H and a maximum distance A between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 ,
  • Unless the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 not the loading position according to the 3 occupies, that is otherwise, has the support element 6a . 6b an open and portion capsule 1 releasing position on how they are in the 1 . 2 and 4 . 5 is shown. The release of the portion capsule 1 comes here in particular in the context of the functional position of the 5 following the brewing process for carrying.
  • Although the handle H according to the invention both the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 as well as the support element 6a . 6b charged, are the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 , on the one hand, and the support element 6a . 6b on the other hand mechanically and also functionally independently designed. Their application is still with the help of the common handle H, as will be described in more detail below and in detail.
  • It can be seen that the support element 6a . 6b a support pad 6a and an operating arm interacting with the handle H 6b having. In the exemplary embodiment define the support pad 6a on the one hand and the actuating arm 6b on the other hand a structural unit 6a . 6b and preferably a one-piece assembly 6a . 6b , It can support the support 6a and the actuating arm 6b be designed as jointly produced punching / bending part. Based on the presentation in the 3 one recognizes that in the embodiment and not limiting two support elements 6a . 6b are provided. The two support elements 6a . 6b are each edge of the frame 3 provided and designed mirror-symmetrical to each other compared to a central plane or central plane.
  • The support pad 6a is at least in the loading position after the 3 in between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 formed outdoor area 9 arranged. The outdoor area 9 is there from the maximum distance A between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 spanned or limited and is at least partially down by the support in question 6a or according to the embodiment by the two double-sided support pads 6a locked. This allows one in the outdoor area 9 introduced portion capsule 1 with the help of the support element 6a . 6b be supported, between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 ,
  • As already explained, the support overlay extends 6a in the outdoor area 9 in the loading position of the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 mostly horizontal, leaving the support element 6a . 6b in this way its supporting function in the loading position in question for the portion capsule 1 can follow. In contrast, the actuating arm 6b on the edge of the outdoor area 9 or at the edge of the frame 3 arranged. In addition, there is the respective actuator arm 6b laterally next to the open in the loading position brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 , Furthermore, the actuating arm extends 6b in the direction R of the relative movement between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 , According to the embodiment in the horizontal direction.
  • To the support element 6a . 6b in the closed and the portion capsule 1 in the loading position after the 3 to be able to transfer supporting position as well as in the otherwise open position in which the portion capsule 1 is released, is the actuating arm 6b formed rotatable about its longitudinal axis. This can be seen especially in a comparison of the functional positions after the 2 and 3 , For this purpose, the respective actuating arm 6b in two lateral supports 3a . 3b of the frame 3 articulated. The front support 3a is adjacent to the receiving element 2 arranged. In the area of the rear support 3b you can still recognize a spring 10 ,
  • With the help of the spring 10 is the actuating arm 6b for taking the open position of the support element 6a . 6b biased. In other words, the spring provides 10 for that the support element 6a . 6b consistently and automatically as well as spring assisted occupies the open position, as in the 1 . 2 and 4 . 5 is shown. In this open position of the support element 6a . 6b is the support pad 6a essentially vertically oriented. This is the outdoor area 9 open at the bottom. In this way, following a brewing process in the transition from the 4 to 5 the as-consumed portion capsule the outdoor area 9 rely on gravity assisted down, as in the 5 is shown.
  • In the loading position of the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 and consequently the closed position of the support element 6a . 6b after 3 on the other hand is the support pad 6a oriented essentially horizontally. This allows the portion capsule 1 in the outdoor area 9 and in the loading position after 3 on the relevant support pad 6a be applied and supported on it. An additional alignment and centering is neither required nor provided in this context.
  • So that the support element 6a . 6b leaves its fully occupied open position and occupies the closed position, performs the actuator arm 6b in the exemplary embodiment in about a quarter turn about its longitudinal axis. This quarter-long rotation of the actuator arm 6b can be seen especially in the transition from the functional position to the 2 with partially opened handle H to 3 , which corresponds to the functional position with fully open handle H. This includes the loading position.
  • At the transition from the open position of the support element 6a . 6b after 2 to the closed position according to the 3 becomes the support pad 6a pivoted from its previously taken vertical to horizontal orientation. For this purpose, the actuating arm 6b a stop 11 on. In the embodiment, the stop 11 end of the actuating arm 6b and adjacent to the rear pillar 3b of the frame 3 arranged. At the stop 11 In the exemplary embodiment, this is an oblique stroke, that is to say such a stop 11 the compared to the horizontal direction or the direction R of the relative movement of the closure element 4 runs at an angle. The stop or oblique stroke 11 is from a control pin 12 applied.
  • To guide the control pin 12 is a carriage in the embodiment 13 provided, which between the two supports or support bearings 3a . 3b of the frame 3 extends and may be connected to this. Due to the double design of the support element 6a . 6b each on both sides of the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 are correspondingly also two nozzles 3a . 3b and two associated sledges 13 on each side of the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 realized.
  • The control pin 12 is from a stop, not shown 15 on the closure element 4 taken along once the closure element 4 for opening the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 is moved to the right in the embodiment. The closure element 4 also likes for a backward movement of the control pin 12 when closing the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 to care.
  • Crucial, however, is the fact that the control pin 12 when opening the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 with the help of the handle H through the stop 15 on the closure element 4 is moved, in particular, in the transition from the 2 to 3 recognizes. In this process, the control pin moves 12 against the stop or oblique stroke 11 , This provides the control pin 12 in connection with the stop or oblique stroke 11 on the actuating arm 6b of the support element 6a . 6b for that the actuating arm 6b the described quarter-long rotation in the transition from the functional position of 2 to 3 completed. At the same time, this quarter-turn of the actuating arm ensures 6b that the initially vertically oriented support pad 6a is pivoted in the horizontal orientation, which the fully open handle H in the loading position of the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 after 3 corresponds. Now the portion capsule 1 in the outdoor area 9 and relies on the support pad 6a from.
  • Now, starting from the fully open position of the handle H and consequently the maximum distance A between the receiving element 2 and the closure element 4 the handle H towards the transition from the 3 to 4 is depressed, takes the closure element 4 the portion capsule 1 increasingly inside him. At the same time, this transition of the handle H from the fully open position of the 3 to the partial closed position according to 4 making sure that the stop on the closure element 4 , which previously during the opening operation of the closure element 4 the control pin 12 has taken from the control pin 12 Will get removed. The control pin 12 is now free of the attack and is therefore using the Schräganschlages 11 on the actuating arm 6b moved in the embodiment to the left. This is ensured by the spring 10 , which in this process the actuating arm 6b resets. At the same time this process ensures that the support element 6a . 6b from its closed position in the loading position to the 3 with fully open handle H in the open position automatically and supported by the spring 10 passes.
  • This results in the approach of the closure element 4 to the receiving element 2 in the outdoor area 9 not for any contact with the support pad 6a , which at this time has long since (again) taken its vertical position. Thus, while the handle H at least in its fully open position after the 3 the control pin 12 against the attack 11 for longitudinal rotation of the actuating arm 6b and for taking the closed position of the support element 6a . 6b is moved, after completion of the application of the control pin 12 the control pin 12 and with him the operating arm 6b by the force of the spring 10 automatically reset. The support element 6a . 6b is then reopened.
  • At the transition from the 4 to 5 now becomes the closed position of the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 reached, in which the closure element 4 on the receiving element 2 is applied. This is the portion capsule 1 in the cavity 5 the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 locked in. In addition, in this process, the cavity 5 hermetically closed and can then be carried out the described extraction process with the hot water and under pressure. After the brewing process leaves the desired hot beverage, in the embodiment of coffee, the receiving element 2 via an indicated discharge line 14 ,
  • For disposal of the spent portion capsule 1 Now, the handle H after brewing in 5 pulled up and the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 open. Since following the functional position according to the 4 the support element 6a . 6b has still maintained its open position, can now use the spent portion capsule 1 the outdoor area 9 Gravity-assisted leave to the bottom. That shows that 5 , Only when the further opening of the brewing chamber 2 . 4 . 5 the handle H - again - is completely opened and the loading position after the 3 achieved, this process ensures that the support element 6a . 6b is closed again, because in this process, the support pad 6a is transferred from its previously taken vertical position to the horizontal position. At this time, the spent portion capsule has 1 long ago the closure element 4 and also the outdoor area 9 leave gravity-assisted downwards.
  • This process is characterized by the co-acting inclined planes in one hand, the closure element 4 and on the other side of the edge of the portion capsule 1 supports and therefore runs almost automatically. That is, the portion capsule 1 slides when the brewing chamber is open 2 . 4 . 5 Gravity-assisted along the inclined planes, initially out of the closure element 4 and then falls down from the outdoor area 9 out. For holding the used portion capsule 1 likes the underside of the outdoor area 9 a chamber or an outlet, not shown, may be provided.
