8 Claims. (01. 62—141)
My invention relates to liquid cooling appara- the machinery compartment l2. A cooling ele-‘
tus, and particularly to a combined =bottled beverage cooler and draft liquid cooler.
'
ment I1 is disposed in the refrigerated compart
'
ment I3.
It is an’ object of my invention to provide a
5 draft liquid cooler for a bottled beverage cooler
which may be supplied as original equipment
with the bottled beverage cooler, or may be utilized to convert existing bottled beverage coolers
liquid cooler generally designated at 22. >
to combination bottled beverage coolers and
10 draft liquid coolers.

is another object of my invention to proa draft liquid cooler for use in a refrigercabinet, wherein the draft liquid is availat an accessible portion of the exterior of
15 the cabinet, which cooler, including a container
for the liquid to be cooled, a faucet, and a pipe
connection between the faucet and the container,
is removable from the cabinet as a unit, without
disconnecting the faucet or pipe, connection.

It is a further object of my invention to pro-
The refrigerated compartment I3 is
provided with an upper access opening I8, a por
tion of which is covered by a hinged closure I9. 5
The remainder of the access opening is covered
by a removable supporting plate 2| for a draft
'
.Referring to Figs. 2, 3, and 4, the draft liquid
,
cooler 22 comprises a faucet 23 on the top of 10
plate 2| connected to a supply of liquid by a con
duit 24. The faucet is also connected by a con
duit 25 to a coil or cooling vessel-26, which coil
or cooling vessel is in turn connected through .a '
conduit 28 to outlet 21 on the top of plate 2|. 16
A pressure regulating valve 29 is connectedbe- '
tween the faucet 23 and coil 26 in the conduit 25.v
A drain conduit 3| is provided adjacent the out-_
let 21. The drain conduit 3| extends into a
funnel shaped conduit 3|a which catches drain 20
vide a draft liquid cooler for a bottled beverage . water.
A drain conduit 32 is attached to the
cabinet, in which heat is abstracted from the
funnel 3|a and extends to the exterior of the
bottled beverage bath, and wherein the draft liq-_
cabinet ||.
uid ‘cooler is partially immersed in the bath so
25 that heat is also abstracted from the draft liquid.
'
'
‘
The refrigerated compartment I3 is preferably
?lled (with a sweet water bath, indicated at 30, 25
It is still a further object of my invention to > which bath is cooled by the cooling element I1 I
provide a draft liquid cooler from whichfheat
may be‘ abstracted by mechanical refrigeration,
which draft cooler is readily removable from the
30 cabinet containing the draft liquid cooler'with' out disturbing the refrigerant connections of the
refrigeration system.
,
_
These and other objects are effected by my
invention as will be apparent from the following
35 description and claims taken in connection with
the accompanying drawings, forming a part of
this application, in which:
.Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a cabinet containing a bottled beverage cooler and a draft
4'() liquid cooler;
Fig. v2 is a sectional elevation of the cabinet
shown in Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a bottom view of my draft liquid
cooler; and,

_
of the refrigerating system. Bottled beverages '
are immersed in the bath 30 for cooling, access
being obtained to the bottled beverages through
the hinged closure member. IS. The coil 26 is 30
also immersed in the cooled sweet water bath 30
so that heat is abstracted from the draft liquid
passing through the coil 26.
q
.
The draft liquid cooler 22 may be removed as
a unit from the cabinet H by disconnecting only 35
the supply conduit 24, and a suitable union 33
is provided for this purpose at the exterior of
thecabinet ||. The draft liquid cooler 22 may
be supplied with the cabinet ‘II as original equip
ment, or bottled beverage cooler ‘cabinets may 40
be converted to combination bottled beverage and
draft liquid coolers by providing a closure means
H! as shown in Figs. 1 and 2 and utilizing the
supporting plate 2| to cover the remainder of the
Fig. 4 is a sectional view of the draft liquid
cooler taken on line II-II of Fig. 3 when looking
access opening l8. Since the draft liquid cooler 45
22 is a unitary assembly, all that is necessary to
in the direction of the arrows.
Referring speci?cally to the drawings for a
detailed description of my invention, Figs..1 and
motor-compressor unit M, a condensing element
convert a bottled beverage cabinet into a com
bined bottled beverage and draft liquid cooler is
to change the closure and provide supply and _
drain connections to the draft liquid cooler. Fur- 50
thermore, since the draft liquid cooler is remov
able and replaceable as a unit, it is an easy mat
ter to replace or repair the draft liquid cooler.
From the foregoing, it will be apparent that I
55 I5, and'a distributing valve I6 are disposed in
have provided a bottled beverage cabinet which 55
50 2 illustrate a cooling cabinet generally designated
at H. The cabinet H is divided into a machinery compartment l2 and a refrigerated compartment I3 by a heat insulated partition Ill. . _A

may be provided with a novel draft liquid cooler
said cover for abstracting heat from said chamber,
a cooling vessel for draft liquid inserted, at least,
in part of said chamber, and inlet and outlet
connections for said cooling vessel extending
through and attached to said cover, said cover and 6
exteriorly of the cabinet. No refrigerant or gas _ draft liquid cooling vessel being removable from
at minimum expense, and which draftv liquid
cooler is removable and replaceable by merely
making or breaking liquid supply connection. In
addition, the draft liquid is readily ‘accessible
connections need be broken in removing or re
placing the draft liquid cooler, and, therefore,
the dangers of escaping refrigerant or loss of
charge from ‘the refrigerating machine are
, avoided.
While I have shown my invention in but one
form, it will be obvious to those skilled in the art
said cabinet as a unitary structure when the in
let- connection to said draft liquid cooling vessel
is disconnected, and without affecting said cool
ing coil.

parting from the spirit thereof, and I desire,
therefore, that only such limitations shall be
placed thereupon as are imposed by the prior art
tainer, said cooling coil being disposed in said
liquid bath independently of said cover, a draft
liquid-cooling vessel attached to and depending
or as are speci?cally set forth in the appended
from the cover and inserted, at least in part, in
the refrigerated container, a draft liquid inlet
connection for said cooler extending through and
