A differential ice sensing system and method for a cold drink beverage dispenser or the like is disclosed. The beverage dispenser has an ice bath cooling tank containing a supply of water. A refrigerated cooling surface is provided within the tank so as to freeze a portion of the water into a body of ice. The beverage dispenser has a beverage flow path which is cooled by the liquid in the ice bath. The differential ice sensing system comprises a first conductivity (or impedance) probe which is disposed in the water of the ice bath at a position where it ...
An ice sensing system in a beverage dispenser or the like, said beverage dispenser including a cooling tank having a heat transfer liquid therein, a refrigerating surface for cooling said liquid in the cooling tank, and a beverage flowpath in heat transfer relation with the liquid in said tank so that beverage dispensed through the beverage flow path is cooled by said liquid, said liquid in the cooling tank being capable of being frozen into ice by said refrigerating surface, said ice sensing system comprising: a first conductivity probe disposed in said...
