Method for Preparing Hot Water of Variable Discharge Temperature and Beverage Vending Machine for Conducting the Method
16 Sep 21
A method for preparing hot water of variable discharge temperature in a beverage vending machine, wherein the beverage vending machine contains a hot water generating system comprising a cold water supply line, an electrically heatable boiler, which has a boiler-side cold water inlet that can be connected to the cold water supply line for the supply of cold water from the cold water supply line into the boiler and a boiler-side hot water outlet for the discharge of water from the boiler that is heated to a maximum discharge temperature (ϑboiler), as well as a hot water outlet line that is connected in terms of flow to the boiler-side hot water outlet and that can be closed by at least one dispensing valve, by way of which the hot water provided with a specified discharge temperature (ϑtarget, ϑtarget1, ϑtarget2, ϑtarget3, ϑtarget4) for the preparation of a hot beverage can be taken from the hot water outlet line, wherein the cold water supply line can be connected alternatively to the boiler-side cold water inlet or to the boiler-side hot water outlet by way of an electrically actuatable 3/2 way valve, which, for the discharge of hot water, can be loaded with a sequence of electrical pulses, whose pulse duration (τ, τ1, τ2, τ3, τ4) is selected as a function of the specified discharge temperature (ϑtarget, ϑtarget1, ϑtarget2, ϑtarget3, ϑtarget4) of the hot water.
