한편, 상기 아이스 뱅크(21)의 상부면은 개구된 형태이고, 상기 냉장실 도어(12)가 닫힌 상태에서 상기 개구부는 상기 제빙 장치(20)의 하방에 위치되는 구조이다. On the other hand, the upper surface of the ice bank 21, and the opening shape, the opening in the state in which the refrigerator compartment door 12 is closed, is a structure which is located at the lower side of the ice-making device 20. 그리고, 상기 제빙 장치(20)로 냉기가 직접 공급되도록 하여 얼음이 제조되도록 하거나, 별도의 냉매 배관이 제공되어 얼음이 제조되도록 할 수 있다. And, to ensure that cooling air is supplied directly to the ice-making device 20, or to the production of ice, is provided with a separate refrigerant pipe can be such that the ice is manufactured.

또한, 상기 아이스 뱅크(21)에는 상부가 개구된 원통 형상의 컨테이너(211)와, 상기 컨테이너(211) 내부 하측에 제공되어 얼음이 하방으로 안내되도록 하는 오거(auger)(212)와, 상기 오거(212)의 하단에 일체로 연결되어 얼음을 분쇄하는 크러셔(crusher)(213)와, 상기 크러셔(213)를 구동하는 모터(214) 및 상기 모터(214)와 크러셔(214)를 연결하여 모터의 회전력을 전달하는 샤프트(215)가 포함된다. In addition, the auger (auger) (212), which is the ice bank 21 is provided in the container 211 of cylindrical shape with a top portion is open, the inner lower the container 211 such that the ice is guided to the lower side, the auger It is integrally connected to the bottom of the 212 motor by connecting the crusher (crusher) 213, a motor 214 and the motor 214 and the crusher 214, which drives the crusher 213 for crushing the ice of include a shaft 215 for transmitting the rotational force.

또한, 상기 냉장실(15)의 천장 부위 어느 일측에는 제빙 장치(20)가 제공된 다. In addition, the ceiling area either side of the refrigerating chamber 15, there is provided an ice-making device 20. 상세히, 상기 제빙 장치(20)는 상기 아이스 뱅크(21)의 상측에 배치되어, 배출되는 얼음이 상기 컨테이너(211)로 낙하될 수 있도록 구성된다. In detail, the ice making apparatus 20 is arranged on the upper side of the ice bank 21, the ice discharged is adapted to be dropped into the container 211.

여기서, 상기 제빙 장치(20)는 어떠한 종류의 제빙 장치(20)도 가능하므로, 그 구조에 대한 상세한 설명은 생략하기로 한다. Here, the ice-making device 20 is also possible because the ice maker 20 of any kind, and a detailed description of the structure will be omitted.

한편, 상기 아이스 뱅크(21)의 컨테이너(211) 쪽으로 연장되는 상기 냉장 덕트(18)는 도시된 바와 같이 선반(112)의 저면을 따라 연장되는 구조 외에, 선반(112)의 상부면 또는 측면을 따라 연장되도록 할 수도 있다. On the other hand, the top surface or side surface of the cold storage duct (18) in addition to the structure, which extends along the lower surface of the shelf 112. As shown, the shelf 112 extending towards the container 211 of the ice bank 21 It may be so as to extend along. 즉, 상기 냉장실 도어(12)에 제공되는 아이스 뱅크(21)의 장착 위치에 따라 상기 냉장 덕트(18)의 배치 구조가 적절하게 결정될 수 있다. That is, according to the mounting position of the ice bank 21 is provided in the refrigerating chamber door 12. The arrangement of the cold storage duct (18) may be appropriately determined.

예를 들어, 상기 아이스 뱅크(21)가 상기 냉장실 도어(12)의 일측 가장자리에 장착되는 경우, 상기 냉장 덕트(18)는 상기 선반(112)의 측면을 따라 연장 가능하다. For example, it is when the ice bank 21 is mounted on one side edge of the refrigerator compartment door 12, the cold storage duct (18) is extendable along the side of the shelf 112.

또한, 상기 냉장 덕트(18)의 토출측 단부는 소정 각도로 경사지게 형성되어, 냉기가 하향 토출되도록 하는 것이 바람직하다. In addition, the discharge side end of the cold storage duct 18 is formed to be inclined at a predetermined angle, it is preferable to ensure that cold air is discharged downward. 이는, 토출되는 냉기가 상기 아이스 뱅크(21)의 컨테이너(211) 내부로 직접 토출되도록 하기 위함이다. This is to ensure that the discharged cooling air is directly discharged into the container 211 of the ice bank 21. 즉, 상기 증발기(31)를 통과하면서 저온으로 냉각된 냉기의 적어도 일부분이 상기 컨테이너(211)로 직접 토출됨으로써, 컨테이너(211) 내부에 수용된 얼음이 녹아서 엉겨 붙는 현상이 효과적으로 방지되도록 하기 위함이다. That is, It is to such that by being at least a portion of the cooled cold air at a low temperature directly discharged into the container 211 while passing through the evaporator 31, the container 211 to melt ice contained therein eonggyeo prevent the sticking phenomenon effectively.

뿐만 아니라, 냉기가 하향 토출되는 경우, 토출되는 냉기에 의하여 에어 커튼 효과를 얻을 수 있어, 냉장실 도어를 열었을 때 냉기가 외부로 빠져나가는 양을 줄일 수 있는 장점이 있다. In addition, when the cool air is discharged downward, by the discharged cool air can be obtained, an air curtain effect, there is an advantage that cold air can reduce the amount of escaping to the outside when opening the refrigerator compartment door.

상기와 같은 구성을 이루는 본 발명에 따른 냉장고에 의하여, 얼음을 저장하는 아이스 뱅크가 냉장실 도어에 제공되더라도, 얼음이 녹아서 서로 엉겨붙는 현상이 방지되는 효과가 있다. By a refrigerator in accordance with the present invention constituting the configuration described above, even if the ice bank for storing the ice providing a refrigerator compartment door, there is an effect that a phenomenon attached to each other by melting the ice eonggyeo prevented.

나아가, 얼음이 녹아서 엉겨붙지 않음으로써, 아이스 뱅크 내부에 제공되는 얼음 분쇄 장치에 과부하가 걸리는 현상이 방지되는 효과가 있다. Furthermore, there is an effect that the ice does not stick eonggyeo by melt, this phenomenon overloading the ice crushing device provided inside the ice bank protection.

또한, 얼음 분쇄 장치에 과부하가 걸리지 않음으로써, 얼음 분쇄 장치를 구동하는 구동 모터와, 얼음을 분쇄하는 블레이드와 같은 구성 부품이 파손되지 않는 효과가 있다. In addition, there is an effect by the overload does not take the ice crushing device, that is not a component such as a drive motor for driving the ice crushing unit, and the blade crushing the broken ice. 따라서, 아이스 뱅크의 수명이 길어지고 수리 및 교체에 필요한 추가 비용이 소요되지 않는 장점이 있다. Thus, it prolongs the life of the ice bank has the advantage of not consuming additional costs for repair and replacement.

또한, 냉장 덕트의 단부가 냉장실 전방에 제공되므로, 토출되는 냉기에 의하여 에어 커튼이 형성되는 효과가 있다. In addition, there is an effect that the end portion so provided in the fresh food compartment forward, the air-curtain formed by the discharged cooling air of the cold ducts.

또한, 냉장실에 노출되는 아이스 뱅크 내부에 저장된 얼음이 녹지 않도록 하기 위하여 별도의 결빙 유지 장치를 구비할 필요가 없이, 증발기를 통하여 공급되는 냉기를 이용함으로써, 냉장고의 제조 단가가 낮아지는 부가적인 효과도 있다. Further, without the need to provide a separate freezing holding device in order to prevent the ice stored in the ice bank inside is exposed to the refrigerating chamber insoluble, by using the cold air supplied via the evaporator, the additional effect that the manufacturing cost of the refrigerator is lowered even have.
