  • Publication number: 20230031863
    Abstract: A coffee machine is described. The coffee machine has an exterior mounting port to which a coffee vessel is removably fitted. A water delivery head is positionally fixed with respect to a main housing of the coffee machine, and a tamping system is used to displace the coffee vessel (or part thereof) relative to the water delivery head, thereby to provide tamping of coffee grounds contained in the coffee vessel.

  • Publication number: 20230034233
    Abstract: A coffee machine is described. The coffee machine includes a water reservoir, a water heater, a water pump, a coffee vessel for receiving ground coffee, and a water delivery system having a water delivery head for delivering heated water to the coffee vessel. A closing and/or tamping system is provided for compacting the ground coffee in the coffee vessel by providing relative movement between the water delivery head and the coffee vessel. The closing and/or tamping system includes a hydraulic actuator, where a water outlet from the water pump is coupled to the hydraulic actuator by a first fluid coupling and the water outlet is coupled to the water delivery head by a second fluid coupling which includes a passive in-line valve. The passive in-line valve opens when a pressure reaches a desired pressure.

  • Publication number: 20230024663
    Abstract: A mixing apparatus is described. The mixing apparatus has a first port for receiving milk, a second port for receiving steam, and a mixing chamber for mixing the milk, the steam, and air. A channel arrangement connects the first port and the second port, and defines an air intake channel which leads to a frothing section. The mixing apparatus is designed such that, in use, the frothing section fills sufficiently with steamed milk that has a direct path from the second port to the mixing chamber is interrupted by the steamed milk. This provides a noise reduction during use of the mixing apparatus. A flow reducing means, such as a barrier, may be used for this purpose.

  • Publication number: 20230014643
    Abstract: A mixing apparatus has a first port for receiving milk, a second port for receiving steam and a mixing chamber for mixing milk, steam and air. A channel arrangement connects the ports as well as defining an air intake channel which leads to a frothing section. An adjustment element is provided for adjusting a seal in the vicinity of the air intake channel, thereby to adjust a frothing level.

  • Patent number: 11399926
    Abstract: The invention relates to a mouthpiece for performing a treatment of teeth such as teeth whitening. Accordingly, the mouthpiece may be arranged for cosmetic treatment. The treatment is based on illumination of the teeth of light with a suitable wavelength. The mouthpiece is designed so that light from light sources, e.g. LED's, is sufficiently homogenized so that the light irradiance at the teeth is sufficiently uniform to achieve good treatment results. Furthermore, the mouthpiece is designed so that the irradiance at the teeth is sufficiently high to achieve efficient treatment and so that heating of the teeth is minimized to an acceptable heating.

  • Publication number: 20220053969
    Abstract: A coffee machine makes use of a valve arrangement for controlling the coupling of a water heater outlet selectively to one of two or more outlets, such as a steam delivery nozzle and a brew chamber. The valve arrangement comprises an active valve between the inlet channel and a first one of the outlets and a passive valve downstream of the active valve from the water heater outlet, coupled to a second one of the outlets. A cam surface controls the active valve, wherein the angular position of the cam surface controls the coupling of the inlet channel to the first one of the outlets. The rotation may be driven by rotational coupling to a brew chamber motor. This coffee machine design makes use of a single valve arrangement to provide the flow control from the water heater. This provides a compact arrangement with a low component count and simple control mechanism. It also enables all valve mechanisms to be outside the water or steam flow.

  • Publication number: 20220040045
    Abstract: A baby bottle device (100) is provided which comprises a teat (110) having a teat volume (115), a container (120) having a container volume (125) and a partitioning element (300) between the teat volume (110) and the container volume (125). The partitioning element (300) comprises a plurality of openings (310) for letting fluid in the container volume (125) flow into the teat volume (115). The baby bottle device comprises a floater (400) having a buoyancy, being coupled to the partitioning element (300) and being adapted to close at least one of the plurality of openings (310) in the partitioning element (300).

  • Publication number: 20220031572
    Abstract: A baby bottle device (100) is provided which comprises a container (110) with a container volume (115), a teat (120) with a teat volume (125) and a valve unit (200). The teat comprises a first valve (112) for inletting air into the inside volume of the bottle (100). The inside volume of the bottle corresponds to the volume of the container (110) and the teat volume (125). The valve unit (200) with a second valve (210 230) is arranged outside the teat volume (125). The threshold of the vent unit is lower than the threshold of the first vent (112) in the teat.

  • Publication number: 20200405925
    Abstract: A breast shield arrangement (300) for a breast pump comprises a first sealing portion (310), a port (320) and an intermediate portion (330) coupled between the first sealing portion (310) and the port (320). The intermediate portion (330) comprises a circumferentially extending wall defining a first volume (V1) which is adapted to receive a part of a breast, a first end (331), a curved portion (332) and a second end (333). The curved portion (332) comprises a second sealing portion (332c) which is adapted to at least partially seal the curved portion (332) against the nipple (310), the areola (320) or the breast (200) when a vacuum is applied at the port (320) creating a second volume (V2) between the first sealing portion (310, 332c) of the breast (200). The curved portion (332) at the second volume is curved outwardly as seen from the first sealing portion (310).
