Basic operation concepts
During the normal functioning the distributor is set in standby
status.
Introducing the necessary amount, according to the set price,
and after pressing the key relative to the desired drink, the drink
dispensing cycle is activated and can be divided in to different
processes:
CUP DISPENSING
– It is the first operation that the distributor starts (except for
the selections with pre-selection “without CUP”).
– the motor inside of the cup dispenser moves the plastic gear
to separate and make the cup fall into the cup ring inside the
cup dispenser (Fig.3.2).
SUGAR DISPENSER
Where set and requested , an amount of sugar in the preset
maximum dose is dispensed with the possibility of stopping the
latter at the desired dose.
The sugar is dispensed directly in the cup in the E versions whereas
for the I versions it is pre-mixed with the instant drinks.
Fig. 3.2
The dispensing procedure occurs according to the following
phases:
1. the geared motor activates the helicoidal screw conveyor of
the sugar product container, dispensing the desired quantity
into the product chutes (Fig.3.3)
2. The geared motor is activated and by means of the cam, it
effects the movement of the product chute , in order to make
sugar to fall into the cup (Fig. 3.4).
Fig. 3.3
Fig. 3.4

ANTARES
SPOON DISPENSING
This process is activated only in the versions where the spoon
dispenser is foreseen (E); In these versions it is possible to select
the spoon in the selections without sugar and/ or in the instant
selections .
In the I models the spoon dispenser is not foreseen as the sugar
comes pre-mixed with the instant beverages.
- the geared motor that operates the spoon release device is
activated making the spoon fall into the cup. (Fig.3.5).
INSTANT DRINKS
This process is activated when the cup and spoon dispensing
processes have been completed.
According to the type drink requested and to the distributor model,
several of the various processes described here below can be
activated.
– If present, the whipper motor is activated (Fig.3.6)
– The electrovalve assembled on the instant boiler (Fig.3.7) or
fixed to the instant coffee (Fig.3.8) is activated in order to
introduce the set quantity of water into the mixer.
Fig. 3.5
Fig. 3.6
Fig. 3.7
Fig. 3.9
Fig. 3.8
– The instant product geared motor activates the helicoidal screw
conveyor so as to dispense the quantity of product programmed
into the mixer (in some versions more than one product can
be conveyed into the same mixer) (Fig.3.9)
– once the preset quantity of water and powder is dispensed,
the whipper motor is switched off.

ANTARES
ESPRESSO COFFEE
This process functions only the models equipped with the coffee
espresso group (brass or plastic), after the cup and sugar
dispensing processes have been effected.
– the grinder is activated until it reaches the dose of ground
coffee set by the doser (Fig.3.10)
– the doser electromagnet is activated , causing the opening of
the door and consequent fall of the coffee into the brew chamber
– the rotation group geared motor brings it into the dispensing
position and simultaneously compresses the ground coffee
(Fig.3.11).
– the pump that dispenses the quantity of programmed water
and that is controlled by a specific electronic device, (volume
meter), extracting the water from the coffee boiler(Fig.3.12).
– the coffee group geared motor is activated again so as to bring
again into standby position ; during this movement the used
coffee grounds are expelled (Fig.3.13)
Fig. 3.10
The sequence of these operations (grinding and coffee dispensing)
could occur in inverse order according to the type of programme
used.

Cup loading
Use only cups suitable for automatic vending machines, with a
diameter of more than 70-71 mm, avoid compressing the cups
between themselves during the loading. DON’T TRY TO ROTATE
THE TURRET MANUALLY.
First filling
In installation phase with the cup dispenser completely empty,
operate as follows:
– Check that the cup column is not aligned with the distribution
outlet, then fill all the columns proceeding in an anti-clockwise
sense, opposite sense (when the column is aligned with the
distribution outlet), close the door and switch on the machine
so that the cup column rotates and automatically places itself
in a position in which it is not aligned with the inlet and then
proceed to fill (Fig.6.30).
– Put the cup turret’s lid back on (Fig. 6.31).
Normal filling
The cup column should normally filled with the machine off, simply
by opening the front door, lifting the lid and inserting the missing
cups.

9.1.3 Daily cleaning recommended
The objective is that to avoid the creation of bacteria in the food
zone areas.
Cleaning and Loading
So as to guarantee the correct functioning of the distributor
during time it is necessary to effect some operations
periodically, some of which are indispensable for the
observance of the health standard norms. These operations
must be done with the distributor open and switched off.
The cleaning operations must be effected before the loading of
the products. In order to guarantee normal operation, the machine
must be installed in areas that the environmental temperature is
between a minimum of -1°C and a maximum of +32°C end
humidity of not over 70%. Must not be installed in places where
cleaning is done with water hoses(ex. big kitchens.).
Do not use water jets to clean the machine.
For all cleaning operations follow the instructions indicated
in paragraph 9.1.1.
Operate as follows:
- clean all the visible parts in the dispensing area. (Fig. 9.1 e
Fig. 9.2)
remove and clean carefully:
– funnels and powder chutes (Fig. 9.3-pos.1)
– water funnel (2), mixing bowls (3) whipper assembly (4)
9.1.1 Procedure for distributor cleaning
Recommended equipment:
For those responsible for filling up and maintenance of the machine
the recommended equipment is as follows:

- Bottle of detergent
- Bottle of disinfectant
- “Distributor out of action” sign
- Small table for resting items (optional)
Never use:
- Sponges, scourers, cloths
- Brushes
- Screwdrivers or metallic objects.
Fig.9.1
To ensure hygiene:
- Use disinfectants
For cleaning:
- Use detergents and/or detersive products
The purpose of the disinfectants is to destroy any surface
bacteria which may be present. The detergents act to eliminate the dirt. Products exist on the market which are both
detergents/disinfectants and are usually sold at the chemist’s.
On application of the HACCP certain hygienic regulations are
laid down for company self-checking procedures concerning :
- Cleaning of the premises
- Product transportation
- Machinery maintenance
- Waste disposal
- Drinking water procurement
- Personnel hygiene
- Food product characteristics
- Personnel training
- (Directive 93/43 CEE)
Fig.9.2
The cleaning operations may be undertaken:
1 at the site of installation of the automatic distributor
2 at the premises of the company that provides the service
Example of a recommended cleaning procedure of a hot
drink automatic distributor:
The person responsible for machine hygiene, before opening the
distributor must check the cleanliness of the surrounding environment
and put up a sign to tell any potential consumers that:
- the machine is “out of use as maintenance is in progress”
- it is important that the person responsible for cleaning never
has to interrupt his work in order to operate the machine.

9.3.1 Dosage and grinding regulations
Fig. 9.14
The distributor is supplied regulated with standard values and
i.e.:
– TEMPERATURE of the coffee in the cup of about 78°C for 38 cc
of dispensed product
– TEMPERATURE of the instant products in the of about 73°C
– grams of coffee powder, about 7,0 grams
– grams of instant powder products according to what is indicated
on the specific tables.
In order to obtain the best results with the product used we advise
to check:
- Ground coffee gram weighting: vary the quantity using the
knob positioned on the measuring device (Fig.9.15).
Each notch of the regulation knob corresponds to a value of
0.05 grams.
By turning in a clockwise sense the amount decreases.
By turning in an anti-clockwise sense the amount increases.
The variation in the product can be controlled by means of the
reference notches on the body of the measuring unit (see figure 9.15)
Coffee pellets must be have a compact consistency and be
slightly damp.
Fig. 9.15
9.3.2 Regulation of the instant solenoid water delivery valves
– Regulation of the degree of grinding. Turn the screw (fig.9.16)
to obtain the desired results.
Turn clockwise for fine grinding, turn anti-clockwise for coarser
grinding.
After regulation, three product regulations must be carried out
in order to assess the efficiency of the regulation, the finer the
granules the greater the time required for product delivery.
In the case of soluble products you can regulate the quantity of
water and the powder dosage electronically by varying the standard
parameter, according to the procedure indicated in chapter 7.0
PROGRAMMING.
Due to problems caused by the formation of lime scale the instant
solenoid valves can have a reduced water delivery.
– So as to obtain a thorough rinsing of the bowls eventually turn
the solenoid valves water delivery screw. (Fig. 9.17).
