A carbonator system consisting of a holding tank divided into an upper and lower chamber may be used on earth or in the microgravity conditions of outer space. A first embodiment involves first introducing water and then carbon dioxide into the lower chamber of the holding tank. Pressure is then exerted on a moveable piston in this tank to cause the piston to reduce the volume of the lower chamber housing the carbon dioxide and water. This action plus the action of an agitator, drives the carbon dioxide into solution. An alternative embodiment is disclos...
A carbonator system for producing carbonated water comprising: holding tank means for holding at least water and carbon dioxide; a movable piston separating said holding tank means into two chambers, including a first chamber for holding a propellant fluid and a second chamber for holding carbon dioxide and water; and control means for controllng flow of propellant fluid into and out of said first chamber and selectively controlling flow of carbon dioxide and water into said second chamber, the flow of carbon dioxide and water being selectively controlle...
