Abstract

In dispensing devices for beverages, in particular of small volume, there is the problem of obtaining an output pressure which is independent of the supply of the compressed gas and also of the gas or carbon dioxide content of the beverage, and of obtaining simple handling and reliable functioning. To solve this, a housing (1) comprising a beverage container (2) arranged therein and designed so as to be flexible and compressible, and a pressure device (4) are provided, the latter possessing a pressure weight (5) removably inserted into the interior of the housing and arranged so as to be movable relative to it in the vertical direction. The beverage container (2) is preferably designed, with a dimensionally stable supporting container (6) accommodating it, as a constructional unit which is exchangeably inserted into the housing (1). A constant output pressure over the entire emptying process results, and any undesired contact of the beverage with gases or the surrounding air is avoided. <IMAGE>

Description

  • The invention relates to a dispenser for beverages, according to the preamble of claim 1. It also extends to a method for producing and filling beverage containers for a dispenser of the aforementioned type.
  • A dispensing device of the present type is known from European published patent application 0 167 482. This device is intended for the dispensing of carbonated beverages, the temperature-dependent vapor pressure of the carbon dioxide generating the dispensing pressure of the beverage. The use of the device is therefore restricted to corresponding beverages. In addition, there is the problem of the gas or vapor space above the beverage level increasing with increasing emptying of the beverage container. In order to solve this problem, elaborate design measures are provided in the known device, namely a spring device acting on the flexible, flexible beverage container, which reduces the volume of the container as the emptying increases. In order to reduce the construction effort for the long-stroke spring device, the spring force is so small that it cannot overcome the full vapor pressure above the beverage, but only the vapor pressure temporarily reduced when a beverage is removed. Only during a short transition phase after removal can the spring device reduce the container volume. So that the subsequent rise to the full vapor pressure value does not inflate the container again, there is provided a backstop which interacts with the piston and is intended to relieve the spring device of the rising vapor pressure after removal. Overall, this results in a complicated and expensive construction. In addition, it does not work reliably with small withdrawal quantities and with slow withdrawal, because in these cases the speed at which carbon dioxide escapes from the beverage is sufficient to prevent the greater pressure drop required for the device to function.
  • It is also known to dispense beverages from containers of variable volume by means of weight (German patent 10 829). However, as is known, complicated and expensive lever and gear drives are required, which moreover make the handling of the dispensing device for filling and cleaning the container cumbersome.
  • The object of the invention is therefore to provide a beverage dispenser which is distinguished by its simple structure and by its safe function and simple handling, which is independent of the gas or carbon dioxide content of the beverage. The achievement of this object according to the invention is determined by the features specified in claim 1.
  • The pressure weight thus separated from the housing and easily removable and acting directly on the flexible, flexible beverage container ensures, in a surprisingly simple and therefore advantageous manner, a uniform application pressure over the entire dispensing process and complete emptying of the container. Handling is also particularly easy because the beverage container is freely accessible for replacement after the pressure weight has simply been removed. This also applies to the interior of the housing, so that hygienically perfect operating conditions can be easily maintained by thorough cleaning. The dispenser is particularly suitable for beverage containers medium and small volume and can therefore be widely used among small and private consumers.
  • With the advantage of simplicity of construction and handling, the dispensing device according to the invention combines that of unrestricted usability for carbonated beverages as well as for essentially gas-free beverages, because the dispensing pressure is basically generated independently of the gas or vapor pressure over the beverage. In the case of the delivery of carbonated beverages, the carbon dioxide content can in any case be measured independently of the requirements of the application pressure according to the desired taste and physiological properties of the beverage. Since there is also no need to apply propellant gas to the beverage from an additional source to generate the application pressure, not only is the beverage over-saturated with propellant gas is avoided, but also an undesirable effect of oxygen, which is also present in propellant gases with the practically available degrees of purity. which consist mainly of inert gases. The elimination of a propellant also avoids certain sealing problems and makes handling completely harmless. In the order of magnitude already mentioned, e.g. from about 5 to 10 1 1 capacity, weights and dimensions of the dispensing device result, which allow easy transportation by hand and also the insertion of the entire device into conventional cooling or heating devices for setting a desired beverage temperature.
  • Essential and particularly advantageous developments of the invention result from the subclaims. In particular, reference should be made to the further training according to the features of claim 2. The combination of the soft, flexible beverage container with a supporting container that accommodates it and supports it over a large area, preferably thin-walled and designed as a cheap sheet metal part, as a structural unit favors production and filling at low cost on an industrial scale, as well as rational distribution and inexpensive supply to consumers.
  • The storage of the beverage in a closed, flexible, flexible container, which is in turn protected in the dimensionally stable carrying container, also excludes the access of atmospheric oxygen to the beverage and the associated deterioration in quality, as well as the risk of damage during transport and distribution.
  • Further features and advantages of the invention are explained in more detail with reference to the exemplary embodiment shown schematically in the drawings. Herein shows:
    • Fig. 1 shows an overall vertical section of an inventive dispensing device with an inserted beverage container and
    • Fig. 2 is a partial view of Fig. 1 on a larger scale, relating to the central region of the bottom portion of the beverage container and the bottom end of the carrying container with connection opening, namely in the filled state, and
    • Fig. 3 is an illustration corresponding to FIG. 2, but with a connected end portion of an output line.
  • The dispensing device comprises a pot-like housing 1, the interior of which is designed as a receptacle 1a for a container assembly, essentially consisting of a soft, flexible beverage container 2 and a rigid, rigid carrying container 6 with a piston 8 displaceably arranged therein, and the cylindrical shape of the carrying container 6 is small Radial play is adjusted. The top of the piston 8 is designed as a support for a pressure weight 5. Piston and weight together form a pressure device 4 acting on the sack or bellows closed beverage container 2, which has a constant application pressure over the entire piston stroke, ie practically over the axial length of the carrying container 6 generated. The piston, which is designed as a thin-walled sheet metal part, is provided on its upper side with a central projection 9 as a form-locking element for securing the position of the piston, which has a corresponding recess on its underside 16. In its edge area, the piston forms a step 91 as a further form-locking element, which engages around the lower outer edge of the piston. The pressure weight is thus perfectly secured in a central position with respect to the beverage container, but can be removed in a simple manner to replace the container assembly. This also applies to the lowered emptying position of the piston and pressure weight, since the ratio of the inner diameter to the axial depth of the carrying container 6 is sufficiently large. An eye-shaped handle 81 on the top of the piston facilitates this handling. The outer edge of the piston is designed as a cylindrical collar 82 of sufficient axial length to secure the piston against tilting. The exact central position securing of the pressure weight on the piston works in the same direction.
  • The carrier 6 is also formed as a sheet metal part, the cylindrical, dimensionally stable jacket 19 forms a gapless support surface 7 for the beverage container together with the underside of the piston. The latter can therefore be made very thin-walled and axially compressible until completely emptied. At its upper end, the jacket 7 of the carrying container forms a radially inwardly projecting section 10 in the form of a crimp as an upper limit stop for the piston in its filling position. With the lower end of the jacket 19, a plate-shaped bottom end 11 is fixedly connected, which has a central connection opening 12 for the passage of the inner end portion 15 of an outlet line 13 running outwards in the bottom part of the housing 1 and provided there with an outlet valve 3. In the final stage of emptying the container 2 with the lowering of the piston 8, the concave underside of the projection 9 engages around the end section 15 of the projection projecting into the interior of the container Output line 13, so that a virtually complete displacement of the container contents is guaranteed. The functionally important design of the bottom closure and the sealing of the connection of the output line are explained in more detail below in connection with the manufacture and filling of the container assembly.
  • The housing 1, consisting of a cylindrical middle part 1b with a lid 1c and a bottom part 1d, is provided with a double wall 17, in the interior of which, in the example, a tube coil 18 as a heat exchanger of a cooling or heating device which is not shown per se and which is conventional and a heat insulation 20 is arranged. The dispensing device can thus be operated in a manner adapted to the desired consumption states of different beverages. In this context, another advantage can be seen in the fact that container assemblies of the present type and the pressure device can be used universally regardless of the nature of the beverage and can therefore be changed from one beverage to a completely different one simply by changing salaries. Any cleaning of the housing interior that may be required is further facilitated by a drain valve 1e for cleaning liquid arranged in the base part 1d. A base 1f which, in the case of a firm connection to the bottom part 1e of the housing, e.g. can accommodate a cooling or heating unit with the associated electrical connection (not shown in detail), and to the side of which a carrier 1g for drinking vessels T to be placed under the dispensing valve 3 is attached, completes the dispensing device.
  • Fig. 2 shows the bottom end 11 with connection opening 12 in the non-connected filling state of the container assembly. The mentioned connection opening is reinforced by an inward flaring at its edge. The soft, flexible wall of the beverage container 2 engages with a short, tube-like filling attachment 21, which has been closed by a squeeze-weld after the filling has taken place closing opening. As indicated by dashed lines in FIG. 2, the end section of the filling attachment 21, which initially protrudes, is then pushed back into the flared area of the connection opening. The connection opening is then covered and closed by gluing on a disk-shaped seal 14. This seal, like the wall of the beverage container 2, can consist of a suitable elastomer.
  • When the container assembly is inserted into the receptacle 1 a of the housing 1, the end section 15 of the delivery line 13, designed as a cutting tube, with its cutting edge 151 penetrates the seal 14 and the filling attachment 21 of the beverage container. The elastic material of the seal 14, which is also drawn into the joint between the end section 15 and the flange of the bottom connection 11 by friction, ensures a reliable gap closure in the connection area. In addition, the pressure of the inwardly displaced filling attachment 21 surrounding the line end section 15 is brought about by the beverage or dispensing pressure for additional sealing. To secure the puncturing and sealing process, the bottom section of the beverage container 2 is expediently firmly connected to the bottom end 11 of the carrying container, for example by gluing.
  • The procedure for manufacturing and filling the container assembly is as follows:
  • First, the sheet metal cylinder forming the carrying container jacket 19 is provided at one end with the conveyor 10. Then the piston 8 is inserted into the jacket 19 and the latter is positioned with vertical crimping on the vertical axis. Then the beverage container 2, which is firmly connected at its base portion to the plate-shaped base end 11, is inserted into the jacket 19 from below. The bottom edge is then firmly connected to the lower edge of the jacket 19 at its edge by a conventional form or material connection method, for example by folding, flanging, soldering or the like. Then the downward protruding filling attachment 21 connected to a conventional filling device and filled the beverage. The piston is held by gravity in contact with the top of the expanding beverage container 2, whereby the filling process is evened out and the entry of disruptive air is prevented. The filling process is ended when the piston abuts the flange 10. Finally, the seal 14 is glued on.
