A multiflavor beverage dispenser comprises a microprocessor system for controlling the ratio of diluent to concentrate of a post-mix beverage. The system includes a compact flow rate control module for selectively controlling the flow rates of liquids in a plurality of flow passages leading to nozzle assemblies of the dispenser. Each flow rate control module includes a single stepper motor connected to a rotary spool valve for selectively controlling the flow rate of the liquids. The microprocessor system utilizes variable reference signals which are ram...
A flow rate control assembly for selectively controlling the flow rate of a plurality of liquids comprising: (a) a plurality of flow passages for said plurality of liquids; (b) a common bore intersecting each of said flow passages; (c) a movable valve element in said bore having a plurality of flow channels therethrough, one channel for each flow passage, said channels being alignable in controlled degrees with said flow channels, between fully aligned and fully unaligned positions; (d) a single motor for moving the channels of said valve element in said...
