  • Publication number: 20220184283
    Abstract: Complexity of a process of mounting a cushion (40) to an air passage element (20) of abreast pump device is decreased by only requiring a user to arrange the cushion (40) on the air passage element (20) in a first arrangement in which the cushion (40) is easily accessible. Particularly, the user does not need to perform cumbersome actions aimed at accurately putting the cushion (40) to an intended, correct position, as a predetermined mounting arrangement of the cushion (40) on the air passage element (20) is realized under the influence of underpressure prevailing at a back side of the air passage element (20). In the process, the cushion (40) is put to the predetermined mounting arrangement, wherein the cushion (40) is made to flex and/or move.

  • Patent number: 11304557
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a consumable recognition system for recognizing placement and/or type of consumable containing a food substance for the preparation of a beverage by use of a beverage dispenser. To enable the recognition of placement and/or type of consumable in a simple, foolproof and easily implementable way an embodiment of the system comprises a light source (31, 301, 311, 321, 331, 341) for emitting light (35) to the consumable (4a, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90), a light sensor (32 302, 312, 322, 332, 342) for sensing light (36) reflected from a reflection element (42, 52, 63, 73, 83, 93) of the consumable to obtain a sensor signal, wherein the sensor signal depends on the position, orientation, fluorescence, phosphorescence and/or polarization characteristic of said reflection element, and a signal processor (33) for recognizing placement and/or type of consumable based on said sensor signal.

  • Publication number: 20220110834
    Abstract: A teat (1) comprises a hollow teat body (10) including a deformable hollow mouthpiece (11) and a normally-closed valve (30) arranged at a level of the mouthpiece (11) or a level more downstream, the valve (30) being openable under the influence of suction forces exerted to the mouthpiece (11) by a user of the teat (1) during a liquid intake action. The valve (30) is included in a valve area (32) of a valve body (31) that is configured and arranged to prevent a closed-opened condition of the valve (30) from being changed under the influence of deformation of the mouthpiece (11) inflicted by a user of the teat (1) during a liquid intake action, so that the closed-opened condition of the valve (30) is controllable by means of suction forces exerted to the mouthpiece (11) by a user of the teat (1) during a liquid intake action.

  • Publication number: 20220061562
    Abstract: A cover (12) is configured to be used with a liquid container for realizing a drinking device in conjunction with the liquid container. The cover (12) is particularly designed to prevent fluid communication therethrough in a default condition, and to allow fluid communication therethrough in an actuated condition. To that end, the cover (12) includes a gasket (30) and a cover body (20) accommodating the gasket (30), the cover body (20) comprising a liquid passage area (21) and a sealing rim (22). In order for the cover (12) to be leakproof to a high extent under all circumstances in which it is not desired to retrieve liquid through the cover (12), the gasket (30) has at least one structural feature (34) configured to secure sealing contact of the gasket (30) to the sealing rim (22) of the cover body (20) in the default condition of the cover (12).

  • Patent number: 11214474
    Abstract: A domestic beverage dispensing device includes a conduit for supplying the beverage from keg to a tap and a cooling member. The cooling member has a passage surrounded by heat conductive material. A disposable tube of deformable material forms at least a part of the conduit and extends through the passage. The deformability of the material of the disposable tube is such that the outer surface of the wall of the tube abuts against the inner surface of the passage when the beverage is pressurized.

  • Publication number: 20210244865
    Abstract: A breast pump device (100) is provided with a breast receiving portion (130), a pressure source (120) for generating an over- or under pressure, a controller (110) and a breast detector (140) for detecting a first state when no breast is in the breast receiving portion and a second state when a breast is in the breast receiving portion (130). The controller (110) changes a parameter of the breast pump device and/or outputs a notification if the breast detector (140) has detected the second state. The breast detector (140) detects the first or second state based on operating parameters of the pressure source (120). The controller (110) operates the pressure source (120) in a first operating mode if the breast detector (140) has detected the first state or in a second operating mode if the breast detector (140) has detected the second state.

  • Patent number: 10485376
    Abstract: At least two consumables of a set for use in a beverage dispenser wherein each consumable includes a filtering body defining a space containing a food substance, from which the beverage is obtained by use of liquid, and a recognition element representing a surface of the filtering body configured to face a plurality of nozzles of the beverage dispenser that provide a flow of liquid through the consumable. The recognition element has a mechanical property, which is recognizable and/or interpretable by the beverage dispenser when said beverage dispenser obtains a sensor signal by sensing a flow characteristic of the flow of liquid, when the flow of liquid through the consumable is started by the plurality of nozzles. Said mechanical property is different for each type of consumable of the set of consumables so that a characteristic of said sensor signal depends on the mechanical property of the recognition element.
