The carbonization mechanism can be controlled by an element supported by a control shaft which extends through the port of the refrigerator compartment. The shaft is preferably of thermal insulation material and is sealed to the door to prevent heat conduction through the door which could create hot spots inside the food compartment.

In order that "the effectiveness of the refrigerator is not impaired", the complete insulation thickness of the door must be maintained The carbonization apparatus described in the present invention has a compact design enabling it to be mounted on the door of a refrigerator without taking too much on the storage space of the food.However it allows to distribute several refreshed drinks.The appliance is also i5 autonomous and requires no connection with electricity or water.

According to a second embodiment of the invention, it provides a new apparatus for carbonising liquids comprisinga sealed pressure chamber, a valve means for controlling the delivery of liquid to the pressure chamber and zo · liquid-removal In the pressure chamber, a gas inlet valve for regulating the flow of gas under pressure from the source of gas to the pressure chamber is characterized. By means of a base plate which defines a bottom wall of the pressure chamber and a valve housing, the valve means for regulating the liquid, a single hole, will be provided on the bottom wall for flow. The liquid inwardly and outwardly of the chamber, and a valve member in the valve housing and adjustable in the opposite direction of a central position which closes the nut to communicate the latter with a liquid outlet and an outlet nozzle respectively. The use of a common flap mounted in the base member of the pressure chamber for adjusting the flow of liquid to the interior of the outside of the pressure chamber has G 70 to make the apparatus compact so that it can be seen from the viewpoint of the structure, as well as from the correct mode of operation, and the correct sequence of maneuvering. Valve valves can be easily operated by means of a single element.

These. These advantages make it possible to make the apparatus suitably suitable for use in a chemical carrier or its mount in the door of the refrigerator or the cooling unit of the refrigerator. The description of the invention will be obtained from the description of the subject which is given with reference to the appended drawings in which L5 is a side view illustrating a Sésânism © of In the interior of the Osa door, domestic refrigerator, the upper parts of the storage compartment and the storage tank are shown in section. ^ W.id · -charming mechanism, in Oôtfpe 2 <long X® line &amp; ~ &amp; d.

An orifice The lateral inlet 13 also communicates with the orifice 12 and is connected by a pipe 14 to a tank decoupling element adapted for a detachable connection to the outlet orifice of a tank-container 7 mounted on the inside of the tank. door 1 of the refrigerator above the room of carbonization. A valve plug 16, which can slide into the orifice 12, comprises a solid part between the two seals 17, 18, which can be put in place to close the hole 11 (as shown in FIG. 4), and a part pressed between them. seals 18 and 19, able to leave the holes 11 and 13 in communication through the displacement 20 of the plug 16 to the right of the position as shown in Figure 4. A sheath member 20 is mounted in the orifice 12 and defines a passage The end of the plug 16 has a curved shape to facilitate the flow of the liquid to be poured from the flow chamber to the outlet orifice. to reduce turbulence and gas dissolution. The outlet passage is connected to a discharge nozzle 21 located outside the door of the refrigerator 1 by a tube 22 fixed to the gain

The end of the plug 16 remote from the outlet orifice is coupled to a control mechanism described below in detail by a pivoting joint 24. -6-

In the position illustrated in the drawings, the extension 86 presses the pin 42lightly against the weapon of the spring of the relief valve # 5 thus open the discharge valve 41, and the pin 39 is not pressed so that the valve 38 remained closed.When the stop ring 80 is pivoted on its pivot 81 speaks backward movement of the key 71, the part 85 locates first for releasing pin 42 so that discharge valve 41 closes, and then driving pin 39 to open valve 38. From the foregoing description it will be understood that valve 38 can not be opened when plug valve 16 closes. the orifice of the liquid 11 of the carbonization chamber due to the combined action of the tongue 83 and the inlet 82.

The operation of the carbonization mechanism will now be described assuming that the tank container 7 has been filled with water and mounted on the inside of the refrigerator door and that the necessary connections have been made properly. The water in the container is exposed to the cold air of the refrigerator compartment and cools to improve its carbonation. The helical spring 67 normally counteracts the control shaft 60 to a position in which the plug 16 opens, the communication between the reservoir and the carbonization chamber. In this position of the shaft the extension 86 of the ring 85 can not reach the pin 42 so that both valves 41 and 38 are closed. The water flows from the tank 7 into the carbonization chamber, and the air displaced back into the tank through the air intake and the pipe 45 until the ball 30 rises for engage in its seat 32 and that the pressure of the air stuck in the top of the room prevents other water flow from the tank. The control lever 76 is then rotated to a vertical position which rotates the shaft 60 first to close the orifice 11 of the carbonization chamber by means of the valve plug, and to feed the extension 86 against the pin 42 to open the discharge valve * 41.

The gas dissolves and any gas that does not dissolve accumulates in the space above the level of the liquid while gradually increasing the pressure. The maximum pressure is limited by the discharge valve 41 which opens automatically when the preset pressure is reached to allow the gas to escape from the chamber through the orifice 27. The opening and closing maneuvers of the valve 41 provide a signalsonore which indicates that enough gas has been introduced to carbonize the water. ' The control lever 76 is released that allows &amp; The ring 80 to turn and to the valve valve 3S d @ 0 to close, but it can not be turned to discharge the sparkling water, without being pulled backwards first to ssnsnscher the tongue 83 of the The inlet ring 82 pushes the pin 42 inwardly against the spring of the discharge valve and opens the valve 4i to release the pressure in the carburizing chamber. can be rotated in the dispensing position with the arfes® 0 turned to move the plug valve 1 to update the orifice 11 which allows the gaseous water to flow from the chamber to the discharge nozzle 21 mounted on the front of the refrigerator door 1.
