A syrup dispensing system for use in a soft drink dispenser. Sensors are placed in the syrup dispensing flow path to measure the rate of flow of the syrup at the commencement of a dispensing cycle. In a first embodiment of the invention, a regulatable pressure source is then adjusted during the remainder of the dispensing cycle to assure that a full measure of syrup is dispensed. In another embodiment of the invention, the period of time during which the dispensing valve in open is then modified as a function of the flow rate to assure that a full measur...
A syrup dispensing system, comprising: a dispensing head for dispensing syrup into a container placed therebeneath during a dispensing cycle; a pump means in communication with said dispensing head for receiving and maintaining a reservoir of syrup therein and passing said syrup to said dispensing head; flow sensing means in communication with said pump means for measuring a rate of flow of said syrup from said dispensing head, said flow sensing means comprising first and second sensors interposed in a flow path of said pump means, said sensors defining ...
