Abstract (en)

[origin: WO02076856A1] A method and device for removing an ice-water mixture via a drain (6) from a container (1), such as a chamber for producing an ice-water mixture under a low pressure and under cooling, wherein the ice-water mixture is guided to the drain (6) while flowing over a container wall (3), and adjacent the drain (6) water is supplied, such that an impulse is exerted on the ice-water mixture to be drained, as a result of which adjacent the drain a hydromechanical mixing is created. The supply means can comprise a sprayer (9) and a tangentially directed pipe (16) disposed in or near the drain.
