    Abstract

    This specification covers counter-top model noncarbonated beverage dispensers that are mechanically refrigerated and have rigid, transparent, impact-resistant containers to afford a visual display of the beverage dispensed. The beverage dispensers covered by this specification are intended to circulate, cool, and dispense noncarbonated beverages such as pulpy juices, frozen concentrates, and syrup drinks. The beverage dispensers shall be of the following types, classes, styles, and sizes: Types I and II; Classes A and B; Styles A (sizes 1, 2, 3, and 4), B (sizes 1 and 2), and C (size 1). The beverage dispenser shall consist essentially of a base that contains a complete refrigeration system and supports a rigid, transparent, impact resistant, bowl-type beverage container(s) with cover(s). Performance test, pull-down test, energy consumption test, maximum ambient temperature and high humidity test, bowl impact test, and operation production performance test shall be performed to conform with the specified requirements.
