Examples of such products may include, but is not limited to: milk products (e.g. milk shakes, malted drinks, frappe); products based on coffee (for example, coffee, cappuccino, espresso); products based on soda (for example, soft drinks, soda water with fruit juice); products based on tea (for example, iced tea, sweet tea, hot tea); the products are water-based (e.g., spring water, flavoured spring water, spring water with vitamins, drinks with a high content of the electrolyte drinks with a high content of carbohydrates); products on the basis of solid ingredients (for example, a mixture of dried fruits and nuts, products on the basis of granola, a mixture of nuts, cereal products, mixed cereals), medical products (e.g., infusion of medications, injectable medications, medications for pickup the inside, the dialysates); products on the basis of alcohol (e.g., a cocktail, a mixture of wine, alcohol based drinks soda, alcoholic drinks on the basis of water, beer with aromatic additives); and industrial products (e.g., solvents, paints, lubricants, dyes); and sanitary-hygienic/cosmetic products (e.g. shampoos, cosmetics, Soaps, hair conditioners, creams, ointments for local use).

These products can be made by one or more "ingredients". Ingredients may include one or more liquids, powders, solids or gases. Liquids, powders, solids and/or gases can be recovered or diluted during processing and distribution. The products can be a liquid, solid, powder or gas.

Different ingredients can be microingredients", "microingredients" or " microingredients large amounts". One or more of the ingredients may be contained in the housing, i.e. in the part of the machine dispensing the product. However, one or more of these ingredients can be stored or carried out outside the machine. For example, in some embodiments, the implementation of the water (of varying quality), or other ingredients used in large volumes, can be stored outside the machine (for example, in some embodiments, is sushestvennee corn syrup high-fructose can be stored outside the machine), while other ingredients, for example, the ingredients in powdered form, concentrated ingredients, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and/or gas cylinders may be stored in the machine.

Below are described various combinations of the aforementioned electrical components, mechanical components, Electromechanical components and software processes. Along with the fact that the below described combinations that reveal, for example, beverage and medical products (for example, dialysates) using various subsystems, these combinations are not intended to define the boundaries of the present disclosure, and are exemplary embodiments of the ways in which these subsystems can work together to create/distribute the product. In particular, electrical components, mechanical components, electro-mechanical components and software (each of which will be described in more detail below) can be used to produce any of the above products or any other similar products.

Through subsystem 22 of the user interface, the user 26 may select one or more options for inclusion in the composition of such product. For example, these options may include adding one or more ingredients, but not limited to. In one exemplary embodiment, the system is a system for bottling. In this embodiment, the user can choose different flavors (such as, but not limited to, Supplement with lemon, additive with the flavor of lime, additives with chocolate flavor and additive with a taste of vanilla) to add to the drink; adding a drink of one or more nutraceuticals (such as, but not limited to, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin B6vitamin B12and zinc); adding a drink one or more drinks (for example, but not limited to, coffee, milk, lemonade and iced tea); and add a drink on the main or more food products (for example, ice cream or yogurt).

After the user 26 performs the appropriate election by subsystem 22 user interface subsystem 22 of the user interface can transmit appropriate signals to the data (via data bus 32) subsystem 14 control logic. Subsystem 14 control logic may process these signals and data can be retrieved (via the bus 34) one or more recipes, selected from a variety of recipes 36 that are stored in the subsystem 12 of storage. The term "prescription" means instructions to process/create the requested product. When retrieving a recipe from the subsystem 12 storage subsystem 14 control logic can handle this recipe and to provide appropriate control signals (via the bus 34), for example, subsystem 16 of the ingredients in a large volume, subsystem 18 microingredients (and, in some embodiments, implementation, subsystem microingredients large amounts, which are not shown and which may be included in the description regarding microingredients. As for the subsystems to allocate these microingredients large amounts, in some embodiments, the implementation for the distribution of these microingredients large amounts, can be used an alternative site that is performed separately from the host microingredients), podci the subject 20 piping/control, the result is the product 28 (which may be distributed in the container 30).

The storage subsystem 12 may include, for example, a hard disk drive, optical drive, RAM, ROM, CF card (Compact Flash), SD card (Secure Digital), SmartMedia™, Memory Stick or MultiMedia card.

As described above, the subsystem 12 of the user interface can be connected to the subsystem 14 control logic via the bus 34 data. Subsystem 14 control logic may also include a controller 116 storage (shown dotted) to convert the signals provided by the microprocessor 100, in a format that can be used by the system 12 of storage. The controller 116 storage can convert signals provided by the subsystem 12 in a storage format that can be used by the microprocessor 100. In some embodiments, the implementation of the Ethernet connection can also be present.

As described above, the subsystem 16 ingredients large amounts (herein also referred to microingredients"), subsystem 18 microingredients and/or subsystem 20 piping/control can be connected to the subsystem 14 control logic via the bus 38 data.

The interface 118 bus can convert signals provided by the subsystem 16 of the ingredients in a large volume, subsystem 18 microingredients and subsystem 20 piping/control, in a format that can be used by the microprocessor 100.

As described in more detail below, the engine 14 control logic may perform one or more processes 120 control that can control the operation of the processing system 10. The instruction sets and subroutines of processes 120 controls that can be stored in the subsystem 12 storage can be performed by one or more processors (e.g., microprocessor 100) and one or more memory architectures (for example, the ROM 102 and/or RAM 104)included in the subsystem 14 control logic.

Figure 3 is a schematic view of subsystem 16 ingredients in large volumes and subsystem 20 piping/control. Subsystem 16 ingredients large amounts may include containers for consumable ingredients in the manufacture of the product 28 is used with a high speed. For example, subsystem 16 ingredients large amounts of mo is et to include the source 150 carbon dioxide, source 152 water and source 154 corn syrup with high fructose. In some embodiments, the implementation of the ingredients large volumes can be located in close proximity to other subsystems. Example source 150 carbon dioxide may include, but is not limited to, a container (not shown) with a compressed gaseous carbon dioxide. Example source 152 water may include, but is not limited to, municipal water source (not shown), a source of distilled water, filtered source water source water in the reverse osmosis or other desired source of water. An example of a source 154 of corn syrup with high fructose may include, but is not limited to, one or more reservoirs (not shown) with highly concentrated corn syrup with high fructose or one or more of the "bag-in-box packages of corn syrup with high fructose content.

Subsystem 16 ingredients large amounts may include a saturator 156 to generate carbonated water from gaseous carbon dioxide (provided by source 150 carbon dioxide) and water (provided by source 152 water). Carbonated water 158, 160 water and corn syrup 162 with high fructose may be the sent to the node 163 cooling plate, for example, those variants of implementation, where it is desirable to provide cooling distributed product. In some embodiments, the implementation of site cooling plate may be missing as part of the distribution system or may be implemented traversal of this node. The node 163 cooling plate may be arranged to cool the carbonated water 158, 160 water and corn syrup 162 with a high content of fructose to the desired temperature (for example, 40° Fahrenheit).

Along with the fact that shows only one node 163 cooling plate for cooling the carbonated water 158, 160 water and corn syrup 162 with a high content of patterns, this illustration is only an example and is not intended to limit the disclosure, and also other possible ways of implementation. For example, a separate cooling plates can be used for cooling carbonated water 158, 160 water and corn syrup 162 with a high content of fructose. After cooling, chilled carbonated water 164, chilled water 166 and chilled corn syrup 168 with high fructose may be sent to the subsystem 20 piping/control. In other embodiments, implementation of the cooling plate may be absent. In some embodiments, the implementation of the system may be enabled, at least one of the heating plates is.

Although pipelines are illustrated in a particular order, in some embodiments, the implementation of this order is not used. For example, the following modules flow control can be configured in a different order, i.e. the first measurement device flow dual valve further variable resistance line.

For descriptive purposes, the present system is described below with reference to the application of the system for bottling soft drinks in the quality of the product, i.e. microingredients/ingredients in large amounts include corn syrup high fructose, carbonated water and plain water. However, in other embodiments, implementation of the systems of distribution, microingredients and their number may vary.

To illustrate, according to figures subsystem 20 piping/control also includes three devices 170, 172, 174 flow measurements, which measure the volume of chilled carbonated water 164, chilled water 166 and chilled corn syrup 168 with a high content of fructose, respectively. Devices 170, 172, 174 measurement of flow can transmit signals 176, 178, 180 feedback (respectively)in the system 182, 184, 186 controller feedback (respectively).

System 182, 184, 186 feedback controller (which are described in more detail below) m is able to compare the signals 176, 178, 180 feedback thread with the desired volume (defined for chilled carbonated water 164, chilled water 166 and chilled corn syrup 168 with a high content of fructose, respectively). When processing signals 176, 178, 180 feedback flow system 182, 184, 186 controller feedback (respectively) can generate signals 188, 190, 192 flow control (respectively), which can be availed in variable resistance 194, 196, 198 lines (respectively). An example of the variable resistance 194, 196, 198 lines disclosed in U.S. patent No. 5755683 (which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference and publication of U.S. patent No. 2007/0085049 (which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference). Variable resistance 194, 196, 198 lines can regulate the flow of chilled carbonated water 164, chilled water 166 and chilled corn syrup 168 with high fructose via line 206, 208, 210, respectively, which pass to the outlet 24 and (subsequently) to the container 30. However, in the present document describes additional embodiments of the variable resistance lines.

Lines 206, 208, 210 can further include solenoid valves 200, 202, 204 (respectively) to block fluid flow across the line 206, 208, 210 during periods when it is not desirable (for example, during transportation, during maintenance and shutdown).

As mentioned above, Figure 3 is only illustrative view of the subsystem 20 piping/control. Accordingly, a variation in which the subsystem 20 piping/control illustrated is not intended to limit the present disclosure, other configurations are also possible. For example, some or all functions of the systems 182, 184, 186 feedback controller can be included in the subsystem 14 control logic.

Subsystem 18 microingredients may include the node 250 module products, which can be configured with grip, with the possibility of disengagement, with one or more containers 252, 254, 256, 258 product that can be configured to content microingredients for subsequent use in the manufacture of the product 28. Microingredients may constitute a framework that can be used in the manufacture of the product. Examples of such microingredients/bases may include, but is not limited to, the first part of the flavour soft drink, the second cha is th flavour soft drink, coffee flavoring, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals, and all of these can be in the form of liquids, powders or solid phone However, for illustrative purposes in the present description discusses microingredients, which are liquids. In some embodiments, the implementation of microingredients can be in the form of powder or solid phone When any microingredients is a powder, the system may include additional subsystem for measuring powder and/or recovery powder (although, as described in the examples below, when microingredients is a powder, it can be restored in the mixing process, product).

The node module 250 products may include many nodes 260, 262, 264, 266 sockets configured with clutch, with the possibility of release, with many containers 252, 254, 256, 258 products. In this particular example, the node module 250 products includes four host nests (i.e. nests 260, 262, 264, 266) and, therefore, it may be referred to by the term "node module four products. When the location of one or more containers 252, 254, 256, 258 products in the node module 250 products, the container of the product (for example, the container 254 product) can be inserted into the host socket (for example, the node 262 nests) in the direction of arrow 268. Although, the AK is shown in this exemplary embodiment, the node module four products in other embodiments, implementation of the module node may contain more or fewer products. Depending on the product distributed by the distribution system, the number of product containers may vary. Thus, the number of products contained in any node module may be specific to a particular application and can be chosen in such a way as to meet the requirements of any characteristics of the system, including, but not limited to, effectiveness, and/or system function.

For illustrative purposes, each node slot node 250 module product contains the site of the pump. For example, as shown, node 252 socket includes a node 270 pump; node 262 socket includes a node 272 of the pump; node 264 socket includes a node 274 pump; and a node 266 socket includes a node 276 pump.

Each of the nodes 270, 272, 274, 276 pump may include an inlet channel for clutch, with the possibility of disengagement with the hole on the container of the product. For example, node 272 of the pump includes an inlet port 278, which is configured to grip, with the possibility of release, with a hole 280 of the container 254 product. Inlet port 278 and/or the hole 280 may include one or more seal assemblies (for example, about the but or more sealing rings/items Luera; not shown), to provide a tight seal.

An example of one or more nodes 270, 272, 274, 276 pump may include, but is not limited to, site of the piston pump to the solenoid, which pumps a certain constant volume of fluid during each activation of one or more nodes 270, 272, 274, 276 pumps. In one embodiment, use of such pumps company ULKA Costruzioni Elettromeccaniche S.p.A., Pavia, Italy. For example, each activation site of the pump (for example, node 274 pump) through subsystem 14 control logic via the bus 38 data node of the pump can provide a calibrated volume flavour of rotura from the container 256 product. Again it should be emphasized that for illustrative purposes in this section describe microingredients are liquids.

Other examples of nodes 270, 272, 274, 276 pumps and various methods of creation of the pumps described in U.S. patent No. 4808161 (which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference); U.S. patent No. 4826482 (which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference); U.S. patent No. 4976162 (which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference); U.S. patent No. 5088515 (which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference); and U.S. patent No. 5350357 (to the th included in this document in its entirety by reference). In some embodiments, the implementation of the node of the pump may be any of the listed nodes of the pump and can be used ways to create pumps described in U.S. patent No. 5421823 (which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference).

The above references describe non-limiting examples of pumps based membrane with pneumatic actuator, which can be used for pumping liquids. The application site pump-based membrane with pneumatic actuator may be of advantage, for example, the ability to reliably and accurately delivering a certain number (for example, the number of units of microliters) of different compositions within a large number of working cycles; and/or that the pump on the pneumatic actuator may consume less amount of electricity, because it can use the pneumatic energy, for example, from a source of carbon dioxide. In addition, the pump on the basis of the membrane may not require a seal movable joint in which the surface is moving relative to the seal. Vibration pumps, such as pumps, manufactured by ULKA typically use elastomeric seals flexible connection, which may eventually be damaged, for example, after contact with certain types is alcosta, and/or deteriorate. In some embodiments, the implementation of the pumps based on the membrane with pneumatic actuator can be more reliable, more cost effective and easier to calibrate than other pumps. They also produce less noise, generate less heat and consume less power than other pumps.

The node module 250 products can be configured with grip, with the possibility of disengagement, with the node 282 holder. Site 282 holder can be a part of the processing system 10 (or it may be rigidly attached to the system 10 processing). Although it uses the term "unit holder", in other variants of the implementation of this node may be different. Site holder is used to hold the node 282 module products in the desired position. An example of a node 282 holder may include, but is not limited to, a shelf within the processing system 10, which is configured to grip, with the possibility of disengagement, with the node module 250 products. For example, the node module 250 products may include the coupling device (for example, the node of the clip, the host socket, the latch node, the node pin, not shown)that is configured to grip, with the possibility of release, with an additional device, which is included in the node 282 is of NESDA.

Subsystem 20 piping/control may include a node 284 collector, which may be rigidly attached to the node 282 holder. Node 284 collector may be configured to enable the multiple inlet channels 286, 288, 290, 292, which are configured to grip, with the possibility of release, with a hole pump (for example, holes 294, 296, 298, 300 pumps), which is part of each of the nodes 270, 272, 274, 276 of the pump. When the location of the node module 250 products on the site 282 holder, the node module 250 products can be moved in the direction of the arrow 302, allowing, thus, the inlet channels 286, 288, 290, 292 coupled with the possibility of disengagement, with openings 294, 296, 298, 300 pumps. Inlet ports 286, 288, 290, 292, and/or openings 294, 296, 298, 300 pumps may include one or more o-rings or other sealing units (not shown) to ensure tightness.

Node 284 collector may be configured to grip with the group 304 pipes, which can be held (either directly or via intermediate elements) to the outlet 24. As described above, in at least one embodiment, the subsystem 16 ingredients large amounts also delivers the liquid in the form of chilled carbonated water 164, chilled water 16 and/or cooling the aqueous corn syrup 168 with a high fructose content (either directly, or via intermediate elements) to the outlet 24. Accordingly, since the subsystem 14 control logic (in this particular example) can regulate the number of different ingredients in large amounts, for example, chilled carbonated water 164, chilled water 166, chilled corn syrup 168 with a high content of fructose, as well as the number of different microingredients (for example, the first base (that is, flavorings), second base (i.e. nutraceuticals) and third pillar (i.e. pharmaceutical substances)), subsystem 14 control logic can precisely control the manufacturing of the product 28.

Although figure 4 shows only one output port 24, in various other embodiments, the implementation can be applied to the number of output holes. In some embodiments, the implementation of the product distributed from the system through many groups of pipes can fill in more than one container 30. Thus, in some embodiments, the implementation of the distribution system can be configured so that one or more users at the same time could request a distribution of one or more products.

Figure 5 is a schematic view of the subsystem 20 piping/control. Along with the fact that these piping/control is used to control the amount of Oh is Adenau carbonated water 164, added to the product 28, this is only an example and is not intended to limit the present disclosure, as other configurations are possible. For example, the following subsystem piping/control can also be used to control, for example, the amount of cooling water 166 and/or chilled corn syrup 168 with a high content of fructose, which are added to the product 28.

As described above, the subsystem 20 piping/control may include a system controller 182 feedback, which receives the signal 176 feedback flow from the device 170 of flow measurement. System 182 feedback controller may compare the signal 176 feedback thread with the desired volume of flow (as defined by the subsystem 14 control logic via the bus 38 data). When the signal processing 176 feedback thread, the system controller 182 feedback can generate a signal 188 flow control, which can be availed in variable resistance 194 line.

The system controller 182 feedback may include a controller 350 trajectory, the controller 352 flow, pre-emptive controller 354, block 356 delay, the controller 358 saturation and stepper controller 360, each of which is described in more detail below.

The controller 350 formation trajectory who may be configured to receive the control signal from subsystem 14 control logic via the bus 38 data. This control signal may determine a trajectory for subsystem 20 piping/control must deliver the fluid (in this case - chilled carbonated water 164) for use in the product 28. However, the trajectory provided by the subsystem 14 control logic may need modification before it is processed, for example, the controller 352 stream. For example, in control systems, it is difficult to handle curves, which are formed from multiple line segments (i.e., which include a step change). For example, the controller 352 of the thread may have difficulty processing curve 370 control, because it consists of three separate linear segments, i.e. segments 372, 374, 376. Accordingly, at the transition points (e.g. points, 378, 380 transition) controller 352 flow, in particular, (and subsystem 20 pipelines/management in General) will instantly change the flow rate from first to second. Therefore, the controller 350 trajectory can filter curve 30 to form a smooth curve 382 management, which is more easily processed by the controller 352 thread in particular (and subsystem 20 pipelines/management in General), because there is no need in an instant transition from the first velocity to the second.

In an Addendum is s, the controller 350 trajectory may provide an opportunity for wetting the outlet 20 to the filling and flushing of the outlet 20 after bottling. In some embodiments, implementation and/or for some recipes, one or more of the ingredients can cause problems for the outlet 24, if this ingredient (which in this document is designated by the term "dirty ingredient") in contact with the outlet 24 directly, i.e. in the form in which it is stored. In some embodiments, the implementation of the outlet 24 may be subjected to wetting by ingredient "used to bottling, for example, water, to prevent direct contact of these "dirty " ingredients" with the outlet 24. Next, after filling, the hole 24 may be subjected to washing by ingredient "subsequent washing, for example, water.

In particular, if, prior to filling the hole 24 is subjected to wetting by, for example, 10 ml of water (or any other ingredient "pre-filling"), and/or after the filling is subjected to washing by means of, for example, 10 ml of water (or any other ingredient "subsequent washing"), then when you are finished adding dirty ingredient controller 350 trajectory can displace the Ingram is ient pre-rinse, added during the wetting up of the filling and/or rinsing after filling by providing additional quantities of dirty ingredient during the filling process. In particular, since the container 30 is filled with product 28, the water for pre-washing can lead to lack of concentration dirty ingredient in the product 28. The controller 350 trajectory can add dirty ingredient at a speed which is higher than desired, resulting in a product 28 moves from a state of "lack of concentration" in the state "corresponding concentration" and, further, in the state of "excessive concentration", or the product is provided in a concentration that is above a certain particular recipe. However, after adding the appropriate number of dirty ingredient washing process after filling can add more water or another suitable ingredient, applied after washing", resulting in the product 28 again receives a "corresponding concentration dirty ingredient.

The controller 352 stream can be configured as a proportional-integral controller with feedback. The controller 352 flow can be compared and processing, which according to the above description were executed by the system controller 182 feedback. N the example, the controller 352 of the thread may be configured to receive the signal 176 feedback device 170 flow measurements. The controller 352 stream may compare the signal 176 feedback thread with the desired volume of flow (which was defined subsystem 14 control logic and modified by the controller 350 of the trajectory). When the signal processing 176 feedback flow controller 352 flow can generate a signal 188 flow control, which can be availed in variable resistance 194 line.

Proactive controller 354 may provide an estimate of "best guesses", relative to the original position of the variable resistance 194 line. In particular, it is assumed that at a given constant pressure variable resistance line provides flow rate (for chilled carbonated water 164) in the range from 0.00 ml/sec to 120,00 ml/sec. Moreover, it is assumed that during the filling of the container 30 product 28 is desirable to provide a rate of 40 ml/sec. Accordingly, the predictive controller 354 may provide a pre-emptive signal (proactive line 384), which sets the initial resistance line 194 to 33.33% of its maximum value (assuming that the variable resistance 194 line operates linearly).

When determining the meaning of the ia-ahead signal, proactive controller 354 may use the reference table (not shown), which may be generated empirically and which can detect the signal, which must be provided for the various initial velocities of flow. A non-limiting example of such table is the following table:

The flow rate
ml/sec
The signal to the stepper controller
0the pulse in position 0 degrees

20the pulse at the position of 30 degrees
40the pulse position 60 degree
60the pulse position 150 degrees
80the pulse at position 240 degrees
100the pulse at position 270 degrees
120the pulse position 300 degrees

So, assuming that during filling of the container 30 product 28 is desirable to provide a flow rate of 40 ml/sec, pre-emptive to the troller 354 can use the above reference table and apply the pulses to the stepping motor for driving the position is 60.0 degrees (using proactive line 384).

Block 356 delay may form a feedback channel through which the previous version of the control signal (provided in the variable resistance 194 lines) provided in the controller 352 of the stream.

The controller 358 saturation can be configured to disable the integrated management system 182 controller feedback (which, as described above, can be configured as a proportional-integral controller with feedback), when the variable resistance 194 line is set to the maximum value (via step 360 controller), thus increasing the stability of the system by reducing the variance of the flow velocity and fluctuations of the system.

Stepper controller 360 may be configured to convert the signal provided by the controller 358 saturation (at line 386)signal, which can be used a variable resistance 194 line. Variable resistance 194 line may include a stepper motor to control the size of the hole (and therefore flow rate) of the variable resistance 194 line. Accordingly, the control signal 188 may be configured to control the stepper motor that is included in the variable resistance lines.

Fig.6 is with the fight schematic view of subsystem 22 of the user interface. Subsystem 22 of the user interface may include interface 400 with a touch screen that allows the user 26 to select various options regarding the product 28. For example, (by column 402 "the drink"), the user can select the size of the product 28. Examples of selectable volumes may include, but is not limited to: "12 ounces"; "16 oz"; "20 oz"; "24 oz"; "32 oz and 48 oz".

The user 26 may select (via column 404 "type of drink") product type 28. Examples of selectable types may include, but is not limited to: "Kola"; "lemon-lime"; "rootbeer"; "iced tea", "lemonade" and "fruit punch".

The user 26 may also choose (by column 406 "additive") one or more flavor additives/products for inclusion in the composition of the product 28. Examples of selected additives can include, but is not limited to: "taste of cherry", "lemon", "lime taste"; "taste of chocolate"; "coffee taste" and "ice cream".

The user 26 may also choose (by column 408 "nutraceuticals") one or more nutraceuticals for inclusion in the composition of the product 28. Examples of such nutraceuticals may include, but is not limited to: Vitamin A; Vitamin B6"; "Vitamin B12; Vitamin C; Vitamin D and Zinc.

In some Islands Ianto implement additional screen located below the touch screen may include a "remote control" (not shown) for the screen. The remote control may include, for example, buttons to move up, down, left and right, as well as to perform selection. However, in other embodiments, the exercise may be additional buttons.

After the user 26 has completed the appropriate selections, the user 26 can click 410 "Start!" and the subsystem 22 of the user interface may send the appropriate data signals (via the bus 32 data) subsystem 14 control logic. After receiving this signal subsystem 14 control logic may retrieve the appropriate data from the subsystem 12 storage and to provide appropriate control signals to, for example, subsystem 16 of the ingredients in a large volume, subsystem 18 microingredients and subsystem 20 piping/controls for the production of the product 28. Alternative, the user 26 may select a button 412 "Cancel", and the interface 400 touch screen can be reset to the default state (for example, where there are no button).

Subsystem 22 of the user interface can be configured to provide bidirectional communication with the user 26. For example, the subsystem 22 polzovateley the first interface may include information screen 414, which allows the processing system 10 to provide information to the user 26. Examples of the types of information that can be provided to the user 26 include, but are not limited to, advertising, information regarding system failures/warnings and information regarding the cost of various products.

As described above, the node 250 module products (subsystems 18 microingredients and subsystems 20 piping/control) may include many nodes 260, 262, 264, 266 sockets configured with clutch, with the possibility of release, with many containers 252, 254, 256, 258 of the product. Unfortunately, the service system 10 processing for filling containers 252, 254, 256, 258 product, there is a possibility of installation of the container of product to the wrong node slot node 250 module products. This error can lead to contamination of one or more microingredients one or more nodes of the pump (for example, nodes 270, 272, 274, 276 pump) and/or one or more nodes of the pipeline (for example, group 304 pipes). For example, because the flavoring of rubira (i.e. microingredients contained in the container 256 product) has a very strong taste, a certain node of a pump/pipeline node, which is at least once used to spread out the flavour of rubira, the more can not be used for distribution of microingredients with a less strong taste (for example, flavors of lemon-lime flavoring iced tea and flavoring lemonade).

In addition, as described above, the node module 250 products can be configured with grip, with the possibility of disengagement, with the node 282 holder. Accordingly, when the processing system 10 includes multiple nodes of module products and many nodes of the holder, when the service processing system 10, it is possible to set the module node products in the wrong site holder. Unfortunately, such an error can lead to contamination of one or more microingredients one or more nodes of the pump (for example, nodes 270, 272, 274, 276 pump) and/or one or more nodes of the pipeline (for example, group 304 pipes).

Accordingly, the processing system 10 may include a system based on RFID to ensure proper placement of product containers and modules products in the processing system 10. Referring to Fig.7 and 8, the processing system 10 may include RFID system 450, which may include the node 452 of the RFID antenna located on the node module 250 food processing system 10.

As described above, the node module 250 products can be configured with grip, with the possibility of disengagement, with at least one container of the product (for example, the container 258 about the ukta). RFID system 450 may include a node 454 RFID tags located on (e.g., attached to) the container 258 product. When a node module 250 products detachable manner engages with the container of the product (for example, the container 258 product), the node 454 RFID tags may be located within, for example, the upper zone 456 detection node 452 of the RFID antenna. Accordingly, in this example, when the container 258 product is inside (i.e. concatenated, with the possibility of release; (C) node 250 module products, the node 454 RFID tags must be detected by the node 452 of the RFID antenna.

As described above, the node module 250 products can be configured with grip, with the possibility of disengagement, with the node 282 holder. RFID system 450 may also include node 458 RFID tags located on (e.g., attached to) the node 282 holder. When a node 282 holder grips with the possibility of disengagement, with the node module 250 products, site 458 RFID tags can be placed inside, for example, the lower zone 460 detection node 452 of the RFID antenna.

Accordingly, through the node 452 RFID antennas and nodes 454, 458 RFID tags, RFID system 450 may determine whether various product containers (e.g., containers 252, 254, 256, 258 product) inside the node module 250 products properly. Also RFID system 450 may determine whether the node 250 mod is La products in the system 10 processing properly.

Along with the fact that according to the illustration of the RFID system 450 includes one node of the RFID antenna and two nodes RFID tags, this is only an example and is not intended to limit this disclosure, as other configurations are possible. In particular, a typical configuration of the RFID system 450 may include one node of the RFID antenna located at each node slot that is part of the node module 250 products. For example, the RFID system 450 may also include nodes 462, 464, 466 RFID antennas located in the node module 250 products. Accordingly, the node 452 of the RFID antenna can detect that you have installed the container of the product in the node 266 socket (part of the node module 250 products); node 462 RFID antenna can detect that you have installed the container of the product in the node 264 socket (part of the node module 250 products); node 464 RFID antenna can detect that you have installed the container of the product in the node 262 socket (part of the node module 250 products); and node 466 RFID antenna can detect that you have installed the container of the product in the host 260 nests (included in the site module 250 products). Also, since the processing system 10 may include many nodes of module products, each of these nodes module products may include one or more nodes of the RFID antenna to determine which product containers are inserted in a specific node module the products.

As described above, by monitoring the presence of node RFID tags within the lower zone 460 detection node 452 of the RFID antenna, the RFID system 450 may determine whether the node module 250 products in the system 10 processing properly. Accordingly, any of the nodes 452, 462, 464, 466 of the RFID antenna can be used for reading one or more nodes RFID tags attached to the node 282 holder. For illustrative purposes, shows the node 282 holder includes only one node 458 RFID tags. However, this is only an example and is not intended to limit the disclosure, as other configurations are possible. For example, the node 282 holder may include many nodes, RFID tags, namely the node 468 RFID tags (shown dotted) to read the node 462 RFID tags; node 470 RFID tags (shown dotted) to read node 464 RFID antenna; and the node 472 RFID tags (shown dotted) to read node 466 RFID antenna.

One or more nodes RFID tags (e.g., nodes, 454, 458, 468, 470, 472 RFID) tags can be nodes in a passive RFID tag (e.g., nodes, RFID tags, which do not require a power source). In addition, one or more nodes RFID tags (e.g., nodes, 454, 458, 468, 470, 472 RFID) tags can be nodes in a writable RFID tag, and RFID system 450 can write data to these nodes RFID tags. Examples of the types of data stored in the nodes of RFID tags, which may include, but not limited to: the ID number for the container of the product, ID, date of manufacture for a container of the product, the ID of the service life for a container of product, ingredient identifier for the container of the product, module ID products and ID holder.

Regarding the ID number, in some embodiments, the implementation of each time from a container that includes a RFID tag, pumped out a certain amount of ingredient in the RFID tag information is recorded as an updated amount of the ingredient in the container and/or relatively deflated volume. When the container is subsequently removed from the site and placed in another node, the system can read the RFID tag and the system will be known amount of the ingredient in the container and/or the amount that has been pumped from the container. In addition, the RFID tag may also be recorded the date of pumping.

Accordingly, when each of the nodes of the holder (for example, node 282 holder) is installed in the system 10 processing, it can be attached node RFID tag (for example, site 458 RFID)tags, and the attached node RFID tag may determine the identity of the holder (to uniquely identify this node holder). Accordingly, if the processing system 10 includes ten nodes holds the body, ten nodes, RFID tags (i.e. attached to each node of the holder) can define ten unique identity of the holder (i.e. one for each node of the holder).

In addition, when the container of the product (for example, the container 252, 254, 256, 258 product) is manufactured and filled with microingredients, node RFID tag may include: ingredient identifier (to identify microingredients inside this container product); the ID number (identification number of microingredients inside this container product); ID date of manufacture (to identify the date of manufacture of this microingredients); and the ID of the service life (to identify the date when the container of the product can be discarded/recycled).

Accordingly, when the node module 250 products installed in the system 10 processing nodes 452, 462, 464, 466 of the RFID antenna can be activated by the subsystem 474 RFID. Subsystem 474 RFID can be connected to the subsystem 14 control logic via the bus 476 data. When you activate the nodes 452, 462, 464, 466 RFID antennas can start scanning their respective upper and lower detection zones (for example, upper zone 456 detection and lower zone 460 detection) for the presence of nodes RFID tags.

As described above, one or more nodes RFID tags could the t to be attached to the node of the holder, which interlock with the possibility of release, the node 250 module products. Accordingly, when the node module 250 products inserted (that is linked with the possibility of release; (C) at node 282 holder, one or more nodes 458, 468, 470, 472 RFID tags can be placed inside the lower zones of detection nodes 452, 462, 464, 466 of the RFID antenna (respectively). For illustrative purposes, assume that node 282 holder includes only one node RFID tags, namely the node 458 RFID tags. Also, for illustrative purposes it is assumed that the containers 252, 254, 256, 258 of the product are installed in the nodes 260, 262, 264, 266 nests (respectively). Accordingly, the subsystem 474 RFID detects node 282 holder (by detecting node 458 RFID) tags and detects containers 252, 254, 256, 258 product by detecting nodes RFID tags (e.g., node 454 RFID)tags that are installed on each container of product.

Information location related to the various modules of the products, the nodes of the holder and the product containers may be stored in, for example, the subsystem 12 storage which is connected to the subsystem 14 control logic. In particular, if nothing has changed, then the subsystem 474 RFID will be expected detection node 454 RFID tags (attached to the container 258 product) node 452 of the RFID antenna and the detection node 458 RFID tags (attached to the node 282 holder)node 252 of the RFID antenna. Also, if nothing has changed, then the node 462 RFID antenna node detects RFID tags (not shown)attached to the container 256 product; node 464 RFID antenna node detects RFID tags (not shown)attached to the container 254 product; and node 466 RFID antenna node detects RFID tags (not shown)attached to the container 252 product.

For illustrative purposes it is assumed that during a typical service call, the container 258 product is incorrectly positioned in the node 264 nests, and the container 256 product is incorrectly positioned in the node 266 nests. Upon receipt of the information included in the nodes, RFID tags (via nodes RFID antennas), subsystem 474 RFID can find the host RFID tag associated with the container 258 product through node 262 of the RFID antenna; and can detect node RFID tag associated with the container 256 product through node 452 of the RFID antenna. When comparing two locations of containers 256, 258 product previously saved locations containers 256, 258 product (stored in the subsystem 12 storage), subsystem 474 RFID may determine that the location of each of these product containers correctly.

Accordingly, the subsystem 474 through RFID subsystem 14 control logic may display, for example, on the display screen 414 subsystem 22 user interface warning the e message indicates that the product containers were installed in the wrong way. Depending on the types of microingredients in containers of the product, the service technician may be given the choice to continue, or can be informed about the unavailability of continuation of the work. As described above, certain microingredients (for example, a flavoring of rubira) have such a strong taste that if they are distributed through a particular node of the pump and/or site Truboprovod, this site pump/pipeline node can no longer be used for any other microingredients. In addition, as described above, the various components of the RFID tags attached to containers of the product can determine microingredients inside a given container of the product.

Accordingly, if the node pump/node pipeline that was used to flavour lemon-lime will be used for the flavoring of rubira, the service technician may be prompted to confirm this change. However, if a particular node of a pump/pipeline node, which is used for flavoring of rubira will be used for the flavouring of lemon-lime, the service technician may receive a warning indicating that it cannot continue and that it dollars the yen to change the product containers in places and return to their original configuration, or that it should replace the contaminated site of a pump/pipeline node to the new node of a pump/pipeline node. Similar warnings can be provided when the subsystem 474 RFID detects that the node of the holder was placed in the system 10 processing.

Subsystem 474 RFID can be configured to perform the monitoring of the consumption of various microingredients. For example, as described above, the host RFID tags may be initially encoded thus, to determine the number of microingredients in a particular container of the product. Because the subsystem 14 control logic known volume of microingredients retrieved from each container of the product, at predefined intervals (e.g. every hour), the various nodes of the RFID tags included in the various containers of products that can be overwritten subsystem 474 RFID (through node of the RFID antenna) thus, to determine the number of microingredients available in the container of the product.

When detecting that microingredients in the container of the product has reached the predetermined minimum number, subsystem 474 through RFID subsystem 14 control logic may display information on the screen 414 subsystem 22 of the user interface, a warning message. In addition, the subsystem 474 RFID signal is output a warning (via the information screen 414 subsystem 22 UI) in the case if expired shelf life of one or more containers of the products (as defined in the RFID tag attached to the container of the product). In addition/alternatively, the above warning message may be transmitted to a remote computer (not shown), such as a remote server, which is connected (via wired or wireless communication with the system 10 processing.

Along with the fact that according to the above description RFID system 450 includes a node of the RFID antenna that is attached to the module products, and components of RFID tags that are attached to the nodes of the holder and the product containers, this is only an example and is not intended to limit the present disclosure. In particular, the site of the RFID antenna can be placed on any container of the product, the site holder or module products. In addition, nodes, RFID tags can be placed on any container of the product, the site holder or module products. Accordingly, in the case when the node RFID tag attached to the node module products, the node RFID tag may determine the ID of module products, which, for example, determines the serial number of the module products.

Because of the proximity of nodes nests (for example, assemblies 260, 262, 264, 266 nests)included in the node module 250 products, it is desirable to configure the node 452 of the RFID antenna with the ability to provide the Oia exceptions read product containers, located in the adjacent nodes of the nest. For example, the node 452 of the RFID antenna must be configured with read-only nodes 454, 458 RFID tags; site 462 RFID antenna must be configured with read-only node 468 RFID tags and node RFID tag (not shown)attached to the container 256 product; node 464 RFID antenna must be configured with read-only node 470 RFID tags and node RFID tag (not shown)attached to the container 254 product; and node 466 RFID antenna must be configured to read only node 472 RFID tags and node RFID tag (not shown)attached to the container 252 product.

Referring to Fig.9, one or more nodes 452, 462, 464, 466 of the RFID antenna can be configured as a loop antenna. Along with the fact that in the next section, the node 452 of the RFID antenna, this is just an example and is not intended to be limiting, since the following description is equally applicable to nodes 462, 464, 466 of the RFID antenna.

The node 452 of the RFID antenna may include a node 500 capacitor (e.g. capacitor 2,90 pF), which is connected between ground 502 and port 504, which can activate the node 452 of the RFID antenna. The second node 506 capacitor (e.g. capacitor 2,55 pF) can be located between the port 504 and node 508 inductive framework. Node 510 R is sistor (for example, resistor 2.00 Ω) can connect the node 508 inductive frames with ground 502, meanwhile ensuring the reduction factor Q (which is also designated by the term "reducing Q")to increase bandwidth and provide a wider operating range.

In engineering it is known that the characteristics of the node 452 of the RFID antenna can be adjusted by changing the physical characteristics of the node 508 inductive framework. For example, when the diameter "d" of the node 508 inductive frames increases, the performance of the far field of the node 452 of the RFID antenna increases. In addition, when the diameter "d" of the node 508 inductive frame is reduced, the performance of the far field of the node 452 of the RFID antenna is reduced.

In particular, the performance of the far field of the node 452 of the RFID antenna may vary depending on the abilities of the node 452 of the RFID antenna to radiate energy. In engineering it is known that the capacity of the node 452 of the RFID antenna to radiate energy may depend on the length of the circumference of the node 508 inductive limits (relative to the wavelength of the carrier signal 512 that is used to activate the node 452 of the RFID antenna port 504).

Referring to Figure 10, in the preferred embodiment, a carrier signal 512 may be a carrier signal with a frequency of 915 MHz and a wavelength of 12,89 inches. With regard to the design of the master antenna, when the length of okrujno and node 508 inductive frame is approximately equal to or greater than 50% of the wavelength of the carrier signal 512, node 508 inductive framework can radiate energy outward in the radial direction (for example, as shown by arrows 550, 552, 554, 556, 558, 560) from the axis 562 node 508 inductive framework, resulting in high performance in the far field. Conversely, by keeping the length of the circumference of the node 508 inductive limits below 25% of the wavelength of the carrier signal 512, the amount of energy emitted output node 508 inductive limits will be reduced and the performance of the far field will be degraded. In addition, in the direction perpendicular to the plane of the node 508 magnetic frame (as shown by arrows 564, 566) may be a magnetic connection, resulting in a high performance near-field.

As described above, due to the proximity of nodes nests (for example, assemblies 260, 262, 264, 266 nests)included in the node module 250 products, it is desirable to configure the node 452 RFID antennas allow allow exceptions read product containers located in the adjacent nodes of the nest. Accordingly, by configuring the node 508 inductive frame, so that the circumference of a node 508 inductive framework was less than 25% of the wavelength of the carrier signal 512 (e.g., up 3.22 inches for a carrier signal 915 MHz), the performance of the far field can be reduced, and the user is near-field can be increased. In addition, by placing the node 508 inductive framework so that the host RFID tags, which must be read, were located either above or below the node 452 of the RFID antenna, the node RFID tag may be an inductive way connected with the node 452 of the RFID antenna. For example, if a configuration, when the circumference of a node 508 inductive limits is 10% of the wavelength of the carrier signal 512 (for example, of 1.29 inches for a carrier signal 915 MHz), the diameter of the node 508 inductive limits will be equal to 0.40 inch, resulting in a relatively high level of performance of the near field and the relatively low level of performance in the far field.

Citing 11 and 12, the processing system 10 may be included in the node 600 of the housing. The node 600 of the housing may include one or more doors/access panels 602, 604, which, for example, allow you to perform maintenance system 10 processing and replacement of empty product containers (e.g., containers 258 product). For various reasons (e.g., security, protection and the like) may be desirable to lock the doors/panels 602, 604 access so that access to the internal components of the processing system 10 was only available to the service personnel. Accordingly, the above-described RFID subsystem (the subsystem 474 RFID) can be configured so that the door/panel 02/604 access could be opened only when near the node 650 RFID antenna is appropriate node RFID tag. An example of such a suitable host RFID tags may be a node RFID tag that is attached to the container of the product (for example, node 454 RFID tag that is attached to the container 258 product).

Node 650 RFID antenna may include a node 652 multi-segment inductive framework. The first matching component 654 (e.g., capacitor 5,00 pF) may be connected between ground 656 and 658, which can activate the node 650 RFID antenna. The second matching component 660 (for example, the inductance value 16.56 nanohenry) may be located between the contact 658 and node 650 multi-segment inductive framework. Matching components 654, 660 can adjust the impedance of the node 652 multi-segment inductive limits (for example, 50,00 Ohms). Usually a matching components 654, 660 can improve the efficiency of the node 650 RFID antenna.

Node 650 RFID antenna may include a reduction in Q-factor of the element 662 (e.g., resistor 50 Ω), which can be configured with permission node 650 RFID antenna to be used in a wider frequency range. It may be possible to use node 650 RFID antenna over the entire frequency range, as well as to take into account the permissible deviation in a matching network. For example, if h is the PTA of interest to node 650 RFID antenna is 50 Hz and the element reduction factor Q (i.e., "reducing the Q-element") 662 configured to allow for expansion of the range of the antenna 100 MHz, the Central frequency of the node 650 RFID antenna can move at 25 MHz without any impact on the performance of the node 650 RFID antenna. Reducing the Q-element 662 may be located at node 652 multi-segment inductive limits or in some other place node 650 RFID antenna.

As described above, by applying a relatively small site inductive limits (for example, node 508 inductive framework with Fig and 10), the performance of the far field of the node of the antenna can be reduced, and the performance of the near field can be increased. Unfortunately, when using such a small site inductive framework, the depth range of the detection node of the RFID antenna will also be relatively small (for example, it is generally proportional to the diameter of the frame). Therefore, to obtain greater depth the range of detection can be used larger diameter frame. Unfortunately, the use of larger diameter can lead to increased performance in the far field.

Accordingly, the node 652 multi-segment inductive frame may include multiple discrete segments of the antenna (for example, segments 664, 666, 668, 670, 672, 674, 676 antenna with element phase shift (e.g., nodes 680, 682, 684, 686, 688, 690, 692 capacitor). Examples of nodes 680, 682, 684, 686, 688, 690, 692 capacitors may include capacitors capacity is updated to 1.0 pF or varactor (for example, capacitors AC voltage), for example, of a capacity of 0.1 to 250 pF. The above element phase shift may be configured to enable adaptive management phase shift of the node 652 multi-segment inductive framework to compensate for changing conditions; or for the purposes of the modulation characteristics of the node 652 multi-segment inductive framework to provide various functions inductive coupling and/or magnetic properties. An alternative example of the above element phase shift is associated line (not shown).

As described above, by keeping the length of the segment of the antenna is less than 25% of the wavelength of the carrier signal, activating the node 650 RFID antenna, the amount of energy emitted outward from the segment of the antenna is reduced, the performance of the far field is reduced, and the performance of the near field will increase. Accordingly, the size of each of the segments 664, 666, 668, 670, 672, 674, 676 the antenna can be chosen so as to be not more than 25% of the wavelength of the carrier signal, which excites the node 650 RFID antenna. In addition, by appropriately selecting the size of each of the nodes 680, 682, 684, 686, 688, 690, 692 capacitor, any phase shift that occurs when a carrier signal passes through the node 652 multi-segment inductive framework can be offset pose the STV different nodes of the capacitor, included in the node 652 multi-segment inductive framework. Accordingly, for illustrative purposes it is assumed that for each of the segments 664, 666, 668, 670, 672, 674, 676 the antenna has a phase shift of 90°. Accordingly, by using nodes 680, 682, 684, 686, 688, 690, 692 capacitors of appropriate dimensions, a phase shift of 90°, which occurs in each segment may be reduced/eliminated. For example, for a frequency of a carrier signal 915 MHz and segment length of the antenna which is less than 25% (typically 10%) of the wavelength of a carrier signal, the node of the capacitor 1,2 pF can be used to achieve the desired suppression of the phase shift, and to set the resonance of the segment.

As described above, by use of relatively short segments of the antenna (for example, segments 664, 666, 668, 670, 672, 674, 676 antenna), the length of which is not more than 25% of the wavelength of the carrier signal, which excites the node 650 RFID antenna, the performance of the far field of the node 650 antenna can be reduced, and may improve the performance of the near field.

If for a node 650 RFID antenna requires a higher level of performance in the far field, the node 650 RFID antenna may include a node 694 antenna far field (for example, the node of the dipole antenna, which is electrically connected with a part of the node 652 multi-segment range of complete the top of the frame. Site 694 antenna far field may include the first portion 696 of the antenna (that is, forming the first part of the dipole) and the second part 698 antenna (that is, forming the second part of the dipole). As described above, by maintaining the length of the segments 664, 666, 668, 670, 672, 674, 676 antenna at less than 25% of the wavelength of the carrier signal, the performance of the far field of the node 650 antenna can be reduced and the performance of the near field can be increased. Accordingly, the total length of the first part 696 antenna and the second part 698 antenna may be greater than 25% of the wavelength of the carrier signal, it provides a higher level of performance far field.

Along with the fact that the node 652 multi-segment inductive framework is shown as consisting of a set of line segments of the antenna, connected via a gusset, this is only an example and is not intended to limit this disclosure. For example, many of the curved segments of the antenna can be used to build node 652 mnogosegmentnyh inductive framework. In addition, the node 652 multi-segment inductive limits can be configured in any frame shape. For example, the node 652 multi-segment inductive framework can be configured as an oval (as shown in Fig), circle, square, rectangle or vasjugan the K.

Along with the fact that according to the above description, the system contains a host RFID tags (e.g., node 454 RFID)tags, which are attached to the container of the product (for example, the container 258 product), located above the site of the RFID antenna (for example, node 452 of the RFID antenna, which is located on the RFID tag (e.g., node 458 RFID)tags attached to the node 282 holder, this is only an example and is not intended to limit the present disclosure, as other configurations are possible. For example, the host RFID tags (e.g., node 454 RFID)tags, which are attached to the container of the product (for example, the container 258 product), can be placed under the node of the RFID antenna (for example, node 452 of the RFID antenna), which can be placed under the RFID tag (e.g., node 458 RFID)tags attached to the node 282 holder.

Along with the fact that the various electrical components, mechanical components, electro-mechanical components and software processes are described as used in the processing system, which pours the drinks, this is only an example and is not intended to limit the present disclosure, as other configurations are possible. For example, the above-described processing system can be used for processing/distribution other food products (e.g. ice cream and alcoholic beverages). In addition, as described above, the second system can be used not only in the food area. For example, the system described above can be used to handle/deal: vitamins; pharmaceuticals; medical products; cleaning agents; lubricants; paints/painting products and other non-food products in liquid/semi-solid/solid granular and/or gaseous form.

As described above, various electrical components, mechanical components, electro-mechanical components and software processes the processing system 10 can be used in any machine in which you want to create a product of one or more bases (also called "ingredients").

In various embodiments, implementation of the product is created according to the recipe, which is programmed into the processor. As described above, the above recipe can be updated, imported or modified by resolution. The recipe can be requested by the user or may be pre-programmed to create a product plan. Recipes may include any number of bases or ingredients, and create a product may include any number of bases or ingredients in any desired concentration.

Used bases can be any liquid in any concentration or any powder or other solid body, which can be restored or in the process of establishing the Oia product, or to create a product (i.e., "package" of recovered powder or solid can be created at a certain time in the measurement process to create additional products or to give a solution of the above "service" as a product). In various embodiments, the implementation of two or more bases can be mixed in the reservoir, after which they are batched and sent to another manifold for mixing with additional bases.

Thus, in various embodiments, implementation, upon request or to requirements, but at a specified time, the first solution can be created by distributing the collector of the first substrate and at least one additional basis according to the recipe. In some embodiments, the implementation of one of the foundations can be restored, that is, this framework can be a powder/solid, a certain amount which is added to the mixing manifold. Liquid Foundation can also be added to the same mixing manifold, and powdery Foundation can be recovered in liquid form with the desired concentration. The contents of this manifold, then, may be provided in, for example, another collector or spilled.

In some embodiments, the implementation described herein, the methods can be used in combination with the mixing of d is of alizat for use in the procedure of peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis according to the recipe/purpose. As is known from the prior art, the composition of dialysate may include, but is not limited to, one or more of the following substances: bicarbonate, sodium, calcium, potassium, chloride, D-glucose, lactate, acetic acid, acetate, magnesium, glucose or hydrochloric acid.

Dialysate can be used for withdrawal of blood molecules waste (for example, urea, creatinine, ions such as potassium, phosphate and the like) and water by osmosis, and solutions dialysate well known to specialists in this field of technology.

For example, dialysate usually contains various ions, such as potassium and calcium, which are similar to their natural concentration in healthy blood.

In some cases, dialysate may contain sodium bicarbonate, the concentration of which is higher than in normal blood. As a rule, dialysate is produced by mixing water from a water source (e.g., reverse osmosis water) with one or more of the following ingredients: "acid" (which can contain various substances such as acetic acid, D-glucose, NaCl, CaCl, KCl, MgCl and the like), sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3and/or sodium chloride (NaCl). For mid-level professionals in the art is also well known for the manufacturing process dialysate, including the use of appropriate concentrations of salts, osmotic to the ncentratio solution, pH, etc. As described in detail below, dialysate not required to produce in real time, on demand. For example, dialysate can be made simultaneously with the process of dialysis, or before him. Ready dialysate can be stored in a storage vessel of dialysate or similar

In some embodiments, the implementation of one or more bases, for example, bicarbonate, can be stored in powder form. Although for purposes of illustration, powdery base in this example is denoted by the term "bicarbonate", in other embodiments, the exercise machine in powder form or in the form of a solid body can store other base/ingredient, in addition to or instead of bicarbonate, and can be used the following process for recovery basis. Bicarbonate can be stored in a disposable container, which, for example, can be emptied into the reservoir. In some embodiments, the implementation of a certain amount of bicarbonate can be stored in the container, and a certain amount of bicarbonate may be metered from the container into the reservoir. In some embodiments, the implementation of the entire volume of bicarbonate can be completely emptied into the reservoir to obtain a large amount of dialysate.

The solution in the first reservoir is miscible in the second reservoir with one or more additional core is in/ingredients. In addition, some embodiments implement one or more sensors (e.g., one or more conductivity sensors) can be located so that the solution, mix in the ground collector, you can test to make sure that it has reached the desired concentration. In some embodiments, the implementation of the data from one or more sensors can be used in a feedback circuit to correct errors in the solution. For example, if sensor data indicates that the bicarbonate solution has a concentration that is greater or less than the desired concentration, then the collector can be added an additional amount of bicarbonate or reverse osmosis water.

In some embodiments, the implementation of one or more ingredients can be recovered in the collector before mixing in the other manifold with one or more ingredients, regardless of whether these ingredients restored powders/solids or liquids.

Thus, the described systems and methods can provide a means for accurate, rapid production or mixing dialysate or other solutions, which includes other solutions for medical purposes. In some embodiments, the implementation of this system may be included in the dialysator, such as dialysator, described in the patent application U.S. No. 12/072908, submitted 27 February 2008, with a priority date of 27 February 2007, which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference. In other embodiments, the implementation of this system can be integrated into any machine where you want to ensure mixing of the product on demand.

Water takes the main share in the structure of dialysate that when shipping packages dialysate leads to high cost and large requirements in terms of space and time. The above-described system 10 processing can prepare dialysate in dialysator or separate dosing machine (e.g., patient's home), which eliminates the need to transport and store large quantities of packages dialysate. Thus, the above processing system 10 may provide an opportunity to the user or health care provider to enter the desired destination, and the system described by the above-described systems and methods can produce the desired product on demand and on site (for example, in a medical center, pharmacy, or patient's home). Accordingly, described herein systems and methods can reduce the transportation costs, because the fundamentals/the ingredients are the only ingredients that you want to transport/deliver.

As described the ANO above, other examples of products produced by the processing system 10, may include, but is not limited to: milk products (e.g. milk shakes, malted drinks, frappe); products based on coffee (for example, coffee, cappuccino, espresso); products based on soda (for example, soft drinks, soda water with fruit juice); products based on tea (for example, iced tea, sweet tea, hot tea); the products are water-based (e.g., spring water, flavoured spring water, spring water with vitamins drinks with a high content of electrolyte drinks with a high content of carbohydrates); products on the basis of solid ingredients (for example, a mixture of dried fruits and nuts, products on the basis of granola, a mixture of nuts, cereal products, mixed cereals), medical products (e.g., infusion of medications, injectable medications, medications for oral administration); the products on the basis of alcohol (e.g., a cocktail, a mixture of wine, alcohol based drinks soda, alcoholic drinks on the basis of water); and industrial products (e.g., solvents, paints, lubricants, dyes); and sanitary-hygienic/cosmetic products (e.g. shampoos, cosmetics, Soaps, hair conditioners, creams, ointments for local use).
