Merger Discussions[edit]

Merger with Icee[edit]

  • Against - The Icee page is about the Icee Company, not the FCB. --Mdwyer 16:43, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Merger with Slurpee[edit]

  • Against - The Slurpee article, with its long lists of Slurpee-specific content, is sufficient to stand on its own and would be out of place in this article. --Mdwyer 16:43, 24 July 2007 (UTC)


Post Merger Discussion[edit]

The merger is now closed, but if we ever revisit it, a merger with Slush (beverage) might be correct. --Mdwyer (talk) 01:19, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Request to improve the definition of FCB[edit]

At the beginning it is mentioned the following: A frozen carbonated beverage (FCB) is a mixture of flavored sugar syrup, carbon dioxide, and water that is frozen by a custom machine creating a drink comprising a fine slush of suspended ice crystals, with very little liquid. A statement of a low per cent of liquid is not only unaccurate both is a mistake. From a chamber of a freezer, FCB can be supplied to a glass if it's viscosity will be closed to a water viscosity. It can be done in a case of the ice concentration into FCB is 40-50% maximum. I recommend the following text: A frozen carbonated beverage (FCB) is a mixture of flavored sugar syrup, carbon dioxide (chemical formula CO2), and water that is frozen by a custom machine creating a drink comprising a fine slush of suspended ice crystals, with liquid. The final ice crystal concentration changes from 10% to 50%. It depenses on a type of beverage and a trade mark of each company producing FCB. Swallow2011 (talk) 12:46, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Request to improve How an FCB machine works[edit]

Unfortunately, there is a fully mistaken physical explanation of How an FCB machine works : the combination of pressure (up to 40 p.s.i.), sugar, and the constant stirring prevent the mass from freezing solid. - This misleads a potential client, visitors of Wiki and, like, helps to sell the more expensive product. At the same time, we know, Wiki is not a place for advertising. The reasons are: The influence of 40 p.s.i. is only 0.015ºC on crystallization temperature depreciating! On other hand, the crystallization temperature of the prepared mixture is changed on +/- 0.2 ºC. The second, the constant stirring, in contrast, contributes to crystallization process. The third, the main and, in practice, alone factor of the crystallization behavior of the solution is a sugar concentration. The value of crystal amount (ice concentration) in a mixture of syrup and water will be defined exactly according to the phase diagram. Additional positive pressure is required for the better dissolving of CO2. Please, change the text: Depended on sugar concentration, the ice concentration can be changed from zero to 50%.
