In one embodiment, as shown in fig. 3 and 4, or also as shown in fig. 5 and 6, the rotating impellers 5 may be respectively disposed on two opposite side walls of the container, and the rotating direction of the rotating impeller 5 disposed on one side wall is opposite to the rotating direction of the rotating impeller 5 disposed on the other side wall, so that the driving force provided by the rotating impellers 5 disposed on the side walls is the same. Meanwhile, in order to protect fruits and vegetables and avoid being hit by the rotating impeller 5, a protective shell 6 needs to be arranged outside the rotating impeller 5.
In one embodiment, when the fruit and vegetable washing device is provided with the barrier 10, the circulating driving mechanism can also be arranged on the barrier 10.
When the fruit and vegetable cleaning device provided by the embodiment of the utility model is used, fruits or vegetables are put into the container 1 (for vegetables with larger shapes or vegetables with irregular shapes, the vegetables need to be reduced and then put into the container 1, for example, the vegetables with smaller shapes such as hot peppers, green peppers, tomatoes and the like or the vegetables with more regular shapes can be wholly put into the container 1), generally, as the scrubber 2 arranged in the scrubbing area 4 occupies the holding space of the scrubbing area 4, the fruits and vegetables are usually put into the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 in preparation for cleaning, and when cleaning liquid (the cleaning liquid can be water, other liquid or the mixture of other substances and water) is filled in the container 1, the cleaning liquid can drive the fruits and vegetables to flow from the flow temporary storage area 3 to the scrubbing area 4 under the action of the circulating driving mechanism, then flows from the brushing area 4 to the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3, thereby forming a circulating flow path of the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3, the brushing area 4 and the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3 in the circulating channel. When the fruits and vegetables flow through the brushing area 4 along with the cleaning liquid, the brushing device 2 rubs the fruits and vegetables, so that the fruits and vegetables are brushed; when the fruits and vegetables are in the cleaning solution, the cleaning solution can soak the fruits and vegetables, so that dirt on the surfaces of the fruits and vegetables can be cleaned; when the flow rates of the fruits and the vegetables and the cleaning liquid are different, the cleaning liquid can wash the surfaces of the fruits and the vegetables. When the fruits and vegetables enter the brushing area 4 from the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3, one or a part (namely in sequence) of the fruits and vegetables can enter the brushing area, and the brushing device 2 cleans the fruits and vegetables in sequence, so that the cleaning is uniform and orderly, and the effect is good. When the fruits and vegetables are cleaned in the container 1, the fruits and vegetables enter the brushing area 4 for brushing, flow into the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3 for flushing, and enter the brushing area 4 again for brushing in a reciprocating cycle, brushing and flushing are carried out intermittently during cleaning, the fruits and vegetables can be brushed and also can be flushed by the cleaning liquid, and garbage remained on the fruits and vegetables after soaking and flushing is easier to brush off in the brushing area 4 by the brushing area 2, and the beneficial effects are that the container 1 is provided with the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3 and the brushing area 4 which are communicated, the brushing area 4 is provided with the scrubber 2, and the cycle driving mechanism provides the beneficial effects of driving the cleaning liquid and the fruits and vegetables to generate under the synergistic action of the three parts of cycle flowing in the cycle channel.
Meanwhile, as the container of the utility model is provided with the brushing area 4 and the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3 which are communicated, when in cleaning, the fruit and vegetable are brushed by the brushing device 2 in the brushing area 4 and flow with the cleaning liquid in the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3, the fruit and vegetable are not stirred strongly in the whole process, and the collision between the fruit and vegetable and the container is small. Because the fruits and vegetables can circularly flow in the container 1 when being cleaned, a proper amount of fruits and vegetables can be put in the container 1 according to the volume of the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 as long as the cleaning of the fruits and vegetables is not influenced. In the embodiment of the present invention, the fruits and vegetables are put into the fruit and vegetable washing apparatus, which is usually performed in the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3, the above description takes the case that the fruits and vegetables are put into the fruit and vegetable washing temporary storage area 3 first when the fruits and vegetables are ready to be washed as an example, certainly, the case that part or all of the fruits and vegetables can be put into the washing area 4 first when the fruits and vegetables are ready to be washed is not excluded, and the working manner of the case can be known to those skilled in the art according to the above description, for example, the fruits and vegetables put into the washing area 4 flow from the washing area 4 to the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 under the driving of the washing liquid, and then flow from the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 to the washing area 4, so as to form a circulation flow path from the washing area 4 to the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 to the washing area 4 in the circulation channel, and other related contents can refer to the above description, and will not be described in detail herein. In the embodiment of the present invention, the fruit and vegetable are usually taken out from the temporary fruit and vegetable flowing storage area 3 to avoid the blockage of the brushing device 2 placed in the brushing area 4, although the embodiment of the present invention does not exclude the fruit and vegetable from being taken out from the brushing area 4.

In this case, the scrubber 2 is disposed in the container 1 with the rotating shaft 11 disposed horizontally, where the "rotating shaft disposed horizontally" means that the rotating shaft 11 is disposed substantially horizontally, that is, the axis of the rotating shaft 11 is substantially parallel to the horizontal plane, and even if the axis of the rotating shaft 11 forms a certain angle with the horizontal plane, the axis of the rotating shaft 11 is within the meaning range of the "rotating shaft disposed horizontally" in the embodiment of the present invention. In the scrubber having such a configuration, since scrubber 2 has rotating shaft 11 and can rotate around rotating shaft 11, scrubber 2 may constitute the circulating driving mechanism, and when cleaning fruits and vegetables, scrubber 2 may be rotated to provide a driving force for driving the cleaning liquid and the fruits and vegetables to flow in a circulating path in a circulating manner.
When the C-shaped scrubber is adopted, the form of the rotating shaft may be various, for example, a single shaft body is adopted, or the rotating shaft includes a main shaft 45 and a shaft sleeve 46 arranged on the main shaft 45, the scrubbing unit 12 is arranged on the shaft sleeve 46, the connection between the main shaft 45 and the shaft sleeve 46 may be a snap connection, a threaded connection, an interference socket connection, or the like, the main shaft 45 is usually made of metal, the shaft sleeve 46 is usually made of plastic, and at this time, the connection between the main shaft 45 and the shaft sleeve 46 may also be: the end of the main shaft 45 is provided with the thread 47 to form a rough part, the shaft sleeve 46 is sleeved on the main shaft 45, the rough part of the main shaft 45 is tightly matched with the shaft sleeve 46 to enable the shaft sleeve 46 and the corresponding part of the rough part of the main shaft 45 to deform to a certain degree, and therefore the main shaft 45 and the shaft sleeve 46 are tightly connected to form a whole rotating shaft.
When the C-shaped scrubber is adopted, only one scrubber 2 can be arranged, or a plurality of scrubbers can be arranged side by side, and the scrubbing area 4 is arranged corresponding to the scrubber 2. As shown in fig. 7 and 8, the plurality of brushes 2 may be interlocked with each other so that the plurality of brushes 2 may rotate synchronously, the interlocking mechanism between the plurality of brushes may be a gear transmission mechanism, a chain transmission mechanism, a belt transmission mechanism, or the like, the interlocking mechanism shown in fig. 7 and 8 is a gear transmission mechanism, two brushes 2 are shown in fig. 7 and 8, driven gears 13 are provided on the rotating shafts of the two brushes 3, a transition gear 14 is provided between the two driven gears 13 so that the rotating shafts 11 of the two brushes rotate synchronously by the action of the transition gear 14, the transition gear 14 rotates when the two brushes 2 need to rotate, and drives the two rotating shafts 11 to rotate synchronously, and the transition gear 14 can be driven later by the above-mentioned driving mechanism. When a plurality of brushing devices are arranged, the brushing areas correspond to the brushing devices one by one, and the brushing areas are continuously arranged or arranged at intervals. Or, the number of the brushing areas is one or more, and each brushing area is provided with one or more scrubbers.
When a C-shaped scrubber is adopted, the scrubber can be further provided with: as shown in fig. 9, scrubber 2 includes a first scrubber 2-1 and a second scrubber 2-2 disposed opposite to each other, thereby forming two opposite scrubbing areas 4 and improving cleaning efficiency. The first scrubber 2-1 and the second scrubber 2-2 are preferably connected by a reversing mechanism to reverse the rotation direction of the first scrubber 2-1 and the second scrubber 2-2, so that the cleaning liquid forms a smooth circulation flow in the circulation channel. The reversing mechanism can adopt a common reversing mechanism form, for example, a first duplicate gear is arranged on a rotating shaft of the first scrubber 2-1, a second duplicate gear is arranged on a rotating shaft of the second scrubber 2-2, and the first duplicate gear is meshed with the second duplicate gear.
Scrubber 2 is preferably removably mounted to container 1 to facilitate replacement of scrubber 2 or removal of scrubber 2 for cleaning. When the C-shaped scrubber is adopted, the detachable connection mode between the scrubber 2 and the container 1 can be as follows: as shown in fig. 13 and 14, a stopper 15 is provided on the upper edge of the container 1, the rotating shaft 11 of the scrubber is placed between the stopper 15 and the upper edge of the container 1, and the stopper 15 and the container 1 are fixed by screws, and the screws are removed when the scrubber is removed. Or as shown in fig. 2, the rotating shaft 11 of the scrubber is directly erected at the upper end of the container, and only needs to be taken down when needing to be disassembled.

Of course, other detachable connection methods can be adopted between the scrubber and the container, such as setting a positioning block on the rotating shaft, and connecting the positioning block and the container through a snap fit or a screw.
The corners of the container 1 are preferably designed as curved chamfers. If the corners of the container 1 are designed to be sharp, dirt accumulated at the corners of the container 1 is not easily washed. Meanwhile, the corners of the container 1 are designed to be arc chamfers, so that the fruits and vegetables are not easily damaged when flowing along with the cleaning liquid. And the circularly flowing cleaning liquid flows along the arc-shaped surface at the corner of the arc-shaped chamfer, so that the kinetic energy lost at the corner of the container 1 is less.
As a preferable design, the bottom surface of the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 is provided with a slope 17, and when the fruits and vegetables flow out of the brushing area 4 and enter the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3, the fruits and vegetables flow from the high position of the slope 17 to the low position of the slope 17 to accelerate the flow of the fruits and vegetables, so that the jam of the fruits and vegetables in the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 can be avoided.
In the case of the C-type scrubber, the scrubber area may be rotated by holding the shaft with a hand or by rotating the scrubber so that the scrubber can be rotated, but it is preferable that the shaft 1 is connected to a driving mechanism for driving the shaft to rotate, and the shaft 11 is driven to rotate by the driving mechanism so that the scrubber 2 is rotated. The driving mechanism can be an electric driving mechanism or a manual driving mechanism, and is generally positioned outside the container, so that the operation is convenient. The electric driving mechanism adopts a motor, for example, and the output end of the motor is connected with the rotating shaft. The manual driving mechanism is, for example, a rocking handle 18, the end of the rocking handle 18 is connected to the rotating shaft 11, and the distance between the bottom of the container 1 and the bottom of the rocking handle 18 is preferably controlled to be 1.5cm-8cm when the rocking handle 18 is at the lowest position, so that a space for accommodating a hand is formed between the bottom of the container and a table top, and the hand holding the rocking handle 18 does not touch the table top when the rocking handle 18 is rocked.
The connection between the rocking handle 18 and the rotating shaft 11 can be direct or through a connecting structure, such as a gear transmission mechanism.
The driving mechanism is preferably detachably connected to the container 1, so that the driving mechanism and the scrubber 2 can be detached together for packaging during packaging, and the packaging space is saved.
When the driving mechanism is an electric driving mechanism, the detachable connection mode between the electric driving mechanism and the container can adopt a buckling connection mode, a screw connection mode and the like, and a sliding groove is arranged on the container, a sliding sheet is arranged on the driving mechanism, and the sliding sheet is inserted into the sliding groove and the like.
When the driving mechanism is a manual driving mechanism, the detachable structure between the driving mechanism and the container can be in a buckling connection mode, a screw connection mode or the like, and a sliding groove is formed in the container, a sliding sheet is arranged on the driving mechanism, and the sliding sheet is inserted into the sliding groove.
Another way to achieve a detachable connection of the drive mechanism and the container is: since the driving mechanism is connected to the rotating shaft 11, the rotating shaft 11 can be detachably connected to the container 1 in the manner as described above.
The driving mechanism and the rotating shaft 11 can be detachably connected, so that the driving mechanism can be detached independently, and the simplest mode of the detachable connection between the driving mechanism and the rotating shaft 11 is as follows: the cross section at the tail end of the rotating shaft 11 is polygonal, the output end of the driving mechanism is provided with a shaft sleeve, the shaft sleeve is a sleeve matched with the shape of the tail end of the rotating shaft 11, the tail end of the rotating shaft 11 is inserted into the shaft sleeve, the rotating shaft and the driving mechanism can be detachably connected, and the driving mechanism can smoothly drive the rotating shaft to rotate.

In fig. 17, 18 and 19, the detachable connection between the driving gear 19 and the rocking handle 18 is that the driving gear 19 has a cavity 24, a screw 25 is arranged in the cavity 24, the screw 25 is inserted into the rocking handle 18, and a locking rod 26 also penetrates into the cavities of the rocking handle 18 and the driving gear 19, the locking rod 26 has a threaded cavity 27, the screw 25 is screwed into the threaded cavity 27, the end of the locking rod 26 is locked on the rocking handle 18, so that the connection between the rocking handle 18 and the driving gear 19 can be realized, and the rocking handle 18 can be detached by unscrewing the locking rod 26 when detachment is needed.
Other detachable connection mechanisms can be adopted between the driving mechanism and the rotating shaft 11, for example, as shown in fig. 52-60, as mentioned above, the rotating shaft 11 includes the main shaft 45 and the shaft sleeve 46 provided on the main shaft 45, the main shaft 45 of the rotating shaft 11 is provided with the driven gear 28, the driven gear 28 is located at the outer end of the main shaft 45, and the thread 47 on the main shaft 45 is located at the inner end of the main shaft 45. One end of the rocking handle 18 as a driving mechanism is provided with a driving shaft 48, the driving shaft 48 is provided with a driving gear 19, the driving shaft 48 is arranged on a driving fixing block 49 in a penetrating way, so that the driving shaft 48 can rotate, the driving gear 19 is meshed with the driven gear 28, the driven gear 28 can be driven by the driving gear 19 when the rocking handle 18 is rotated, and the rotating shaft 11 is further driven to rotate. As shown in fig. 58 and 59, the driven gear 28 may be a common gear with only one circle of tooth surface, and the driving gear 19 drives the driven gear 28 to further drive the main shaft 45 of the rotating shaft 11 to rotate, so that the rotating shaft 11 can rotate as a whole, and meanwhile, the inner side of the shaft sleeve 46 may be further provided with a gear ring 50, a part of the driven gear 28 is meshed with the driving gear 19, and a part of the driven gear 28 is also meshed with the gear ring 50 of the shaft sleeve 46; as shown in fig. 53-59, the driven gear 28 may also be a dual gear, the first-stage teeth of the dual gear are engaged with the driving gear 19, the inner side of the shaft sleeve 46 is provided with a gear ring 50, the second-stage teeth of the dual gear are engaged with the gear ring 50, when the above-mentioned mechanism is adopted, one end of the shaft sleeve 46 is tightly fitted with the main shaft 45 through the effect of the thread 47, and the other end of the shaft sleeve 46 is engaged with the driven gear 28, that is, both ends of the shaft sleeve 46 are positioned, so that the shaft sleeve 46 is more stable in rotation. Establish gear chamber 20 on container 1 lateral wall upper end, drive gear 19 and driven gear 28 all are located gear chamber 20 (driven gear 28 can be whole or part is located gear chamber 20), drive fixed block 49 then detachable install in gear chamber 20, drive fixed block 49, drive gear 19, drive shaft 48 form an assembly, then this assembly is whole to be dismantled, only need when needing to dismantle drive fixed block 49 can, it is also very convenient during the installation, only need with drive fixed block 49 install in gear chamber 20 can. The detachable connection mode of the driving fixing block 49 may take various forms, such as setting a positioning rib 51 in the gear cavity 20, setting a positioning groove 52 on the driving fixing block 49, and inserting the positioning rib 51 into the positioning groove 52 to position the driving fixing block 49; or the driving fixing block 49 is connected with the side wall of the container through a screw, and the screw preferably penetrates through the upper end of the driving fixing block 49; or the drive fixing block is in snap connection with the cavity wall of the gear cavity 20, and the like.
The main shaft 45 of the rotating shaft 11 can penetrate into the side wall of the container and can be positioned in the following way: a lower spindle groove 53 is formed in the bottom surface of the gear cavity 20, one end of the spindle 45 is supported in the lower spindle groove 53, an upper spindle groove 54 is formed in the lower end of the driving fixing block 49, when the driving fixing block 49 is installed in the gear cavity 20, the upper spindle groove 54 presses on the spindle 45, and at this time, the upper spindle groove 54 and the lower spindle groove 53 enclose a shaft hole to surround the spindle 45. The other end of the main shaft 45 can be suspended in the air, when the later-described blocking part 10 is arranged in the container, a lower main shaft auxiliary groove 55 can be arranged on the upper end surface of the blocking part 10, the other end of the main shaft 45 is erected in the lower main shaft auxiliary groove 55, a second stop block 16 can be arranged at the upper end of the blocking part 10, an upper main shaft auxiliary groove is arranged on the second stop block 16, and similarly, after the second stop block 16 is arranged on the blocking part 10, a shaft hole is defined between the lower main shaft auxiliary groove and the upper main shaft auxiliary groove to surround the main shaft 45. After the installation mode is adopted, the driving shaft 48 penetrates through the driving fixing block 49, and the spindle 45 of the rotating shaft is pressed between the driving fixing block 49 and the gear cavity 20, so that the part of the side wall of the container 1 corresponding to the spindle 45 is not provided with a hole, the liquid capacity of the container 1 is improved, and the liquid leakage risk caused by direct hole opening of the side wall corresponding to the spindle 45 is eliminated. Meanwhile, the driving shaft 49 is generally positioned above the main shaft 45 of the rotating shaft 11, so that the rocking handle 18 connected with the driving shaft 49 is positioned at a higher position, the rocking handle 18 is convenient to rotate, and a hand holding the rocking handle 18 is prevented from hitting a table top when the rocking handle 18 is rotated due to the fact that the position of the rocking handle 18 is lower.
In addition, a wear-resistant mechanism can be sleeved on the driving shaft 48, the wear-resistant mechanism can adopt a driving shaft protecting sleeve 56 (usually a rubber sleeve), and the driving shaft protecting sleeve 56 is positioned between the driving shaft 48 and the driving fixing block 49 and used for reducing the friction between the driving shaft 48 and the driving fixing block 49 during rotation; the wear-resistant mechanisms can be sleeved at two ends of the main shaft 45 of the rotating shaft, the wear-resistant mechanisms at the positions can adopt rotating shaft protecting sleeves 57 (usually rubber sleeves), and the rotating shaft protecting sleeves 57 are located in the shaft holes and used for reducing friction between the main shaft 45 of the rotating shaft and the shaft holes when the main shaft rotates.

A speed regulating mechanism may be provided between the driving mechanism and the rotating shaft 11, and when the speed regulating mechanism is a speed increasing mechanism (for example, a gear train speed increasing mechanism, as shown in fig. 20 and 21), the rotating speed of the rotating shaft may be increased, so as to achieve higher-efficiency brushing;
the speed regulating mechanism can be a speed reducing mechanism (such as a gear train speed reducing mechanism), and when the speed regulating mechanism is the speed reducing mechanism, the rotating speed of the rotating shaft can be reduced, and at the moment, the rotation of the brushing device can be easier;
the speed regulating mechanism can be a gearbox (namely, a gear shifting gearbox which has the same principle with a manual-gear automobile gearbox and outputs different gears by changing gears so as to achieve the purpose of speed regulation), and when the speed regulating mechanism is the gearbox, the speed increasing or the speed reducing of the rotation of the rotating shaft can be realized according to the actual use condition.
The size relationship between the brushing area 4 and the temporary fruit and vegetable flowing area 3 can be as follows: (1) the available volume of fruit vegetables in brushing district 4 is less than the available volume of fruit vegetables of the mobile temporary storage district 3 of fruit vegetables can place more fruits in the mobile temporary storage district 3 of fruit vegetables like this, and the fruit vegetables in brushing district 4 are through also controlling in certain extent simultaneously, guarantee that the fruit vegetables pass through brushing district 4 smoothly, prevent that too much fruit vegetables from producing when passing through brushing district 4 and blocking up. The "fruit and vegetable available volume in the brushing area" as used herein refers to the volume that can accommodate fruit in the brushing area 4 under normal cleaning conditions, i.e. the volume remaining in the brushing area 4 after the volume occupied by the scrubber 2 is removed. (2) The maximum cross-sectional area of the brushing area 4 is smaller than or equal to the minimum cross-sectional area of the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3, in this case, the shapes of the brushing area 4 and the fruit and vegetable flowing temporary storage area 3 can be irregular. (3) Both of the above conditions exist simultaneously.
In the case of the C-type scrubber, when the scrubber 2 rotates to circulate the cleaning liquid, the cleaning liquid preferably flows along the sidewall of the container 1, so that the flowing cleaning liquid does not impact the sidewall of the container 1 obliquely and thus loses the forward power, and therefore, the axial direction of the rotating shaft 11 and the flow direction of the cleaning liquid in the container 1 are preferably substantially perpendicular, where the perpendicular is a basic engineering perpendicular and belongs to a perpendicular category within a reasonable angle, and is not required to be absolutely perpendicular in a geometric sense. As shown in fig. 10, 11 and 12, the rotating shaft 11 is not absolutely perpendicular to the flowing direction of the cleaning liquid, but the inclined rotating shaft 11 can still drive the cleaning liquid in the container 1 to flow in the circulating channel when rotating, and the flowing direction of the cleaning liquid also substantially flows along the side wall of the container. The connection between the rotating shaft and the rocking handle 11 in fig. 10, 11 and 12 can adopt two ways, one way is that as shown in fig. 10 and 11, the output end of the rocking handle 18 is provided with bevel teeth 45, the rotating shaft 11 is provided with a driven gear 28, the bevel teeth 45 are meshed with the driven gear 28, the scrubber 2 is driven to rotate by the rotation of the rocking handle 18, at this time, the rotating shaft of the output end of the rocking handle 18 is still parallel to the horizontal plane, and the operation is more comfortable when the rocking handle 18 is rocked; the other is that as shown in fig. 12, the rocking handle 18 is directly connected to the rotating shaft 11, and at this time, the rotating shaft at the output end of the rocking handle 18 is in the state of the rotating shaft 11, so that the installation is simple, but the operation is slightly inconvenient.
When the C-shaped scrubber is adopted, the scrubbing part 12 includes a plurality of rows of first flexible cleaning objects 29 distributed along the axial direction of the rotating shaft 11, and the first flexible cleaning objects 29 are plastic flexible cleaning objects, soft rubber flexible cleaning objects or cloth strip flexible cleaning objects. The above-mentioned "axially distributed along the rotating shaft" refers to the situation that the first flexible cleaning object 29 is distributed along the axial direction of the rotating shaft, and may be vertically arranged or spirally arranged along the rotating shaft, and the like, which all belong to the above-mentioned "axially distributed along the rotating shaft", and this more regular arrangement mode can obtain better cleaning effect, and of course, the first flexible cleaning object 29 may also be arranged in other irregular or regular distribution modes. The spacing between adjacent rows of first flexible wash load 29 is preferably substantially equal in a radial cross-section of scrubber 2.
The first flexible cleaning object 29 can be bent in a touching mode, the first end of the first flexible cleaning object 29 is arranged on the rotating shaft 11, and the second end of the first flexible cleaning object 29 is a free end. When the fruits and vegetables pass through the brushing area 4, the fruits and vegetables touch the first flexible cleaning object 29, so that the first flexible cleaning object 29 is bent, and the fruits and vegetables are brushed by the first flexible cleaning object 29.
The first flexible cleaning object 29 can be formed in the following specific manner: as shown in fig. 24, each row of the first flexible cleaning object 29 may be a complete row of flexible cleaning objects, such as a complete plastic strip (e.g., nylon strip, TPR strip, etc.), a complete soft rubber strip (e.g., silicone strip, etc.), a complete cloth strip, etc.
Each column of first flexible cleaning objects 29 can also be formed in the following way: as shown in fig. 22, 23, 25, and 26, a plurality of rows of rods (cross section may be circular or directional or other shapes) are included, for example, a plurality of plastic rods (e.g., nylon rods, TPR rods, etc.) are arranged to form a row of first flexible cleaning objects 29, a plurality of soft rubber rods (e.g., silicone rods, etc.) are arranged to form a row of first flexible cleaning objects 29, a plurality of plastic wires (e.g., nylon wires, TPR wires, etc.) form a brush, a plurality of brushes are arranged to form a row of first flexible cleaning objects 29, a plurality of soft rubber wires (e.g., silicone wires, etc.) form a soft brush, and a plurality of soft brushes are arranged to form a row of first flexible cleaning objects 29. Fig. 22 shows the case where the plurality of rows of rods are 6 rows, fig. 23 shows the case where the plurality of rows of rods are 10 rows, and fig. 25 and 26 show the case where the plurality of rows of rods are 7 rows. The shaft itself may be in the form of a strip or other shape, such as the strip shown in fig. 23, 25 and 26, or the helix in fig. 22.
When the C-type scrubber is adopted, after the scrubber 2 is mounted on the container 1, the distance between the scrubber part 12 and the bottom surface of the container 1 is preferably 0.5mm-5cm, and at this time, the scrubber part 12 is not in contact with the bottom surface of the container 1, so that the scrubber 2 is easy to rotate. Another option is to: after the scrubber 2 is installed, the scrubbing part 12 contacts with the bottom surface of the container 1, and at this time, the garbage deposited on the bottom surface of the container 1 can be cleaned, so that the bottom surface of the container 1 can be automatically cleaned. After the selection, on one hand, the brushing part 12 extends into the brushing area 3, so that when the fruits and vegetables pass through the brushing area 4, the fruits and vegetables are rubbed with the brushing part more fully, more fruits and vegetables can be rubbed with the brushing part 12, and the cleaning effect is better. On the other hand, the brushing part 12 extends into the brushing area 4, and has stronger driving action on the cleaning liquid, so that the quick flowing circulating water flow is more favorably formed, the quick flowing circulating water flow is favorable for driving the fruits and vegetables to quickly and circularly move, and the cleaning effect is better.
In the form of a C-brush, the brush section 12 is preferably located higher than the container 1 after the brush 2 has been installed, and this arrangement allows only a portion of the brush section 12 to be immersed in the cleaning liquid during rotation of the brush 2, so that the resistance to the cleaning liquid during rotation of the brush 2 is relatively low and the brush 2 is not subjected to any significant force during rotation.
In the case of the C-type scrubber 2, the distribution of the scrubber unit 12 is preferably: the brushing parts 12 are basically distributed on the transverse width direction of the brushing area 4, so that the fruits and vegetables passing through the brushing area 4 can be basically brushed by the brushing parts 12 in a friction mode, and the cleaning effect is better.
When the C-shaped scrubber is adopted, as a more optimized setting, the bottom of the container 1 is provided with the wiping part 30, and the wiping part 30 can be flexible cleaning objects (such as plastic bristles, plastic brush columns, soft rubber strips, soft rubber bristles, flexible cloth strips and the like), raised lines or convex points or other forms. In the flow direction of the cleaning liquid, the wiping member 30 may be located in front of the scrubber 2, behind the scrubber 2, below the scrubber 2, or may be provided with wipes in front of, behind, and below the scrubber 2. The significance of the provision of the wipe features is: if the wiping component 30 is arranged in front of the scrubber 2, the fruits and vegetables are firstly wiped by the wiping component 30 when entering the scrubbing area 4; if the wiping component 30 is arranged behind the scrubber 2, the fruits and vegetables are wiped by the wiping component 30 when flowing out of the scrubbing area 4; if the wiper member 30 is provided below the scrubber 2, the fruits and vegetables are simultaneously subjected to the rubbing cleaning by the scrubber unit 12 and the wiper member 30 when passing through the scrubbing area 4. Therefore, after the wiping component 30 is arranged, the fruits and vegetables can be brushed by the brushing part 12, and friction can be generated between the fruits and vegetables and the wiping component 30, so that a better cleaning effect can be achieved. Of course, the wiping member 30 may be provided at two or three positions in front of, behind, below the scrubber 2. In fig. 27, 28, and 29, wiper members 30 are provided in front of, behind, and below scrubber 2, wiper members 30 are provided in front of scrubber 2 in fig. 30, 31, and 32, wiper members 30 are provided behind scrubber 2 in fig. 33, 34, and 35, and wiper members 30 are provided below scrubber 2 in fig. 36, 37, and 38. In fig. 27, 30, 33, and 36, the wiping member is a bump, in fig. 28, 31, 34, and 37, the wiping member is a soft strip, and in fig. 29, 32, 35, and 38, the wiping member is a short bristle.
Among them, the optimum arrangement of the wiping member 30 is: the wiping member is located at a rear position below the scrubber 2 in the flow direction of the cleaning liquid. Since the wiping member 30 is disposed at a rear position below the scrubber 2, the fruits and vegetables can smoothly enter the scrubbing area 4 without being subjected to additional resistance when entering the scrubbing area 4. In addition, the wiping member 20 is disposed at a rear position below the scrubber 2, so that no extra resistance is generated in the scrubbing section 4 to the fruits and vegetables, and the fruits and vegetables are prevented from losing the forward power in the scrubbing section 4 and being retained in the scrubbing section 4. In addition, the wiping component 30 is arranged at the rear position below the brushing device 2, so that when the fruits and vegetables are quickly separated from the brushing part 12 after the brushing area 4 passes through the brushing part 12, the fruits and vegetables obtain the power pushed forward by the brushing part 12, and at the moment, friction is generated between the fruits and vegetables and the wiping component 30, and the cleaning effect is better.
After the fruit and vegetable cleaning device is used for a period of time, dirt cleaned by the fruit and vegetable cleaning device is deposited on the bottom of the container, the wiping part 30 is arranged on the bottom of the container, the dirt is easily adhered to the wiping part 30, and therefore the optimal position relation between the first flexible cleaning object 29 and the wiping part 30 is as follows: the end of the first flexible wash load 29 is in contact with the wiper member 30 to enable the first flexible wash load 29 to brush against the wiper member 30, thereby cleaning the wiper member.
In order to enhance the cleaning effect, a transition surface 31 gradually rising along the flowing direction of the cleaning liquid may be formed on the bottom surface of the brushing area 4 or the bottom surface of the container on the outlet side of the brushing area, and when the fruits and vegetables are brushed in the brushing area 4, the fruits and vegetables climb along the transition surface 31, so that the friction between the brushing part 12 and the fruits and vegetables is enhanced, thereby enhancing the cleaning effect. The transition surface 31 is preferably in an inclined plane shape or an inwards concave arc surface shape, preferably an inwards concave arc surface shape, and fruits and vegetables fluctuate in the inwards concave arc surface shape, so that the cleaning effect is better. Alternatively, the transition surface may be formed on the bottom surface of the container on the outlet side of the brushing area 4 along the liquid flowing direction, so that the retention time of the fruits and vegetables in the brushing area 4 is increased due to the fruits and vegetables needing to climb on the outlet side of the brushing area, and the cleaning effect is improved. Furthermore, the wiping component 30 may be disposed on the transition surface 21 to further enhance the cleaning effect, and it is recommended that the wiping component is disposed on the downstream side of the transition surface 31 in the flowing direction of the cleaning liquid, that is, the wiping component 30 is located at the high point of the transition surface 31, where the distance between the brushing part 12 and the wiping component 30 is minimum or crossed, so that the fruits and vegetables obtain more friction to obtain better cleaning effect.
When the C-shaped scrubber is adopted, due to the fact that the distance is reserved between the two adjacent rows of the first flexible cleaning objects 29, the small fruits and vegetables can easily drill between the two adjacent rows of the first flexible cleaning objects 29, and the following effects are caused: because the fruits and vegetables are located between two adjacent columns of the first flexible cleaning objects 29, the fruits and vegetables are clamped between two adjacent columns of the first flexible cleaning objects 29 when the scrubber 2 rotates, and only rotate along with the rotation of the scrubber 2, so that the first flexible cleaning objects 29 cannot be broken through, and the fruits and vegetables cannot be scrubbed by the first flexible cleaning objects 29. Therefore, the brushing part can also comprise a plurality of rows of second flexible cleaning objects 32, the second flexible cleaning objects 32 are arranged between two adjacent rows of first flexible cleaning objects 29, the height of the second flexible cleaning objects 32 is lower than that of the first flexible cleaning objects 29, so that small fruits and vegetables can not penetrate deeply into the space between two adjacent rows of first flexible cleaning objects 29 (blocked by the second flexible cleaning objects 32), and can be brushed by the second flexible cleaning objects 32 and/or the first flexible cleaning objects 29 with different force or contact size. The material, distribution and structure of the second flexible cleaning object 32 can refer to the material, distribution and structure of the first flexible cleaning object 29.
One or more rows of the second flexible cleaning objects 32 can be arranged between two adjacent rows of the first flexible cleaning objects 29. If a row of the second flexible cleaning objects 32 is arranged between two adjacent rows of the first flexible cleaning objects 29, it is recommended that the distance between two adjacent rows of the first flexible cleaning objects 29 is equal, the distance between two adjacent rows of the second flexible cleaning objects 32 is equal, and the regular arrangement is favorable for enhancing the cleaning effect on the radial cross section of the scrubber 2.
When the circulation driving mechanism circulates the cleaning liquid, the circulation flow of the cleaning liquid mainly circulates along the wall surface of the container 1, so that a dead water region (where the cleaning liquid is substantially stationary) exists between the brushing area 4 and the fruit and vegetable flow temporary storage area 3 arranged in parallel, and once the fruit and vegetable are in the dead water region, the fruit and vegetable cannot flow circularly with the cleaning liquid flowing circularly, and cannot be brushed by the brushing device 2. In order to solve this problem, a baffle 10 may be provided in the container 1, the circulation channel surrounding the baffle 10, and the dead water zone is substantially eliminated by the baffle 10, and the range of the dead water zone can be greatly reduced, if not completely eliminated. It is recommended that the blocking part 10 is provided with an arc surface protruding towards the temporary storage area for fruit and vegetable flow, so that the area of a dead water area can be further reduced, and the flowing fruit and vegetable can be ejected outwards to prevent the fruit and vegetable from being detained.
After the baffle part 10 is arranged, one end of the rotating shaft 11 can be supported on the container 1, the other end of the rotating shaft 11 is supported on the baffle part 10 or penetrates into the baffle part 10, and the rotating shaft 11 is not only simple to install, but also is stable after installation. As mentioned above, the other end of the shaft 11 is preferably detachably connected to the blocking portion 10 to facilitate the removal of the scrubber 2.
The barrier 10 may be generally configured as a partition having a length that facilitates the formation of a circulation channel. Of course, the barrier 10 may also take the form of a pillar or the like.
The barrier portion 10 may be formed separately from the container 1, or may be formed integrally with the container 1. When the barrier 10 is formed separately from the container 1, the barrier 10 and the container 1 may be fixed by a snap, or may be fixed by a screw, or may be a rail on the container, and the barrier is fixed by inserting the rail. In fig. 40 and 41, the bottom surface of the barrier portion 10 is provided with a slide rail groove 33, the bottom surface of the container 1 is provided with a slide rail 34, and the installation of the barrier portion 10 can be realized by sliding the slide rail 34 into the slide rail groove 33; in fig. 42, the lower portion of the blocking portion is provided with a locking protrusion 35, the bottom surface of the container 1 is provided with an insertion groove, a locking groove 36 is provided in the insertion groove, and the blocking portion 10 can be installed by locking the locking protrusion 3 into the locking groove 36; in fig. 43 and 44, the barrier 10 and the container 1 are connected by a screw, the screw penetrates the barrier 10 from the container 1, and a penetrating rod 37 for penetrating the screw may be provided in the barrier 10. When the barrier 10 and the container 1 are integrally formed, the preferred forming method is as follows: a hollow projection is formed on the bottom surface of the container 1, and the projection forms the barrier 10.
As described above, although the presence of the barrier 10 can eliminate the dead water zone to some extent, the influence of the dead water zone cannot be completely eliminated, or the flow rate of the cleaning liquid near the barrier 10 is lower than the flow rate of the cleaning liquid at the periphery of the container, and the fruits and vegetables near the barrier 10 may be retained near the barrier 10, so that the inclined surface 38 may be provided at the boundary between the barrier 10 and the bottom surface of the container 1, and the inclined surface 38 is inclined outward from the top to the bottom of the barrier 10, so that the fruits and vegetables at the boundary between the barrier 10 and the container 1 flow outward along the inclined surface 38, and the fruits and vegetables at the boundary between the barrier 10 and the container 1 enter the cleaning liquid at a high flow rate again.
After the baffle part 10 is arranged, a fruit and vegetable inlet is formed between the downstream end of the baffle part 10 and the side wall of the container 1 in the flowing direction of the cleaning liquid. In order to prevent the fruits and vegetables from being jammed at the fruit and vegetable inlet, a retracted guide surface is provided at the downstream end of the barrier part 10 to form a wide fruit and vegetable guide opening between the guide surface and the side wall of the container.
Another measure for preventing fruit and vegetable congestion is as follows: the rotating shaft 11 can be arranged on the container in a bidirectional rotating mode, namely the rotating shaft 11 can rotate clockwise or anticlockwise, the simplest method for achieving the effect is to penetrate or erect the rotating shaft 11 on the container 1, and a one-way mechanism is not arranged between the rotating shaft 11 and the container 1. After the rotating shaft 11 is designed to rotate in two directions, once the fruits and vegetables are jammed in the container 1, the rotating shaft can rotate in the opposite direction, so that the scrubber 2 rotates in the opposite direction, and the cleaning liquid flows in the opposite direction, so that the jammed fruits and vegetables can be scattered, and the jam of the fruits and vegetables can be solved.
In the case of the C-type scrubber, since the scrubber 2 is disposed in the container so that the rotation shaft 11 is horizontal, the scrubber 2 is rotated to throw off the cleaning liquid in the container 1, thereby causing the cleaning liquid to splash. Therefore, a splash-proof cover 39 can be covered on the brushing area 2 to prevent the cleaning liquid from being thrown out, and the most common structure of the splash-proof cover 39 is that the splash-proof cover 39 includes a raised part corresponding to the scrubber 2 and a connecting part connected with the container. Typically, splash guard 39 is a plastic, preferably transparent, piece of plastic so that the cleaning conditions in the brushing zone 4 can be observed. The splash cover 39 may cover only the brushing area 4 or, as shown in fig. 47, may cover the area outside the brushing area 4 so as to close the upper opening of the container for better water-blocking.
After splash-proof cover 39 is provided, water thrown out by scrubber 2 during rotation will be sprayed onto splash-proof cover 39, and water blocked by splash-proof cover 39 will be flushed back onto scrubber 2, forming resistance to the rotation of scrubber 2. To minimize this resistance, the minimum spacing between splash cover 39 and the outer edge of scrubber 2 is 2mm to keep the ram pressure of water that is being stopped by splash cover 39 from backflushing within a small range.
In order to further reduce the splashing of the cleaning liquid, a water blocking mechanism may be provided between the splash guard 39 and the container 1 to block the water thrown out by the brush unit 12 and prevent the water thrown out by the brush unit 12 from leaking out of the container. The concrete structural style of the water retaining mechanism can be as follows: the water retaining mechanism comprises a splash-proof groove 40 arranged on the upper end surface of the container and splash-proof ribs 41 arranged on the splash-proof blocking cover, and the splash-proof ribs 41 can be inserted into the splash-proof groove 40 when the splash-proof blocking cover 39 covers the brushing area; or the water retaining mechanism comprises splash-proof ribs arranged on the upper end face of the container and splash grooves arranged on the splash-proof blocking cover, wherein the splash-proof blocking cover covers the upper end face of the container, and the splash-proof ribs can be inserted into the splash grooves when the flushing area is up. The splashproof rib can keep off the washing liquid, and the splashproof groove can hold the washing liquid that is kept off down.
Another concrete structural form of the water retaining mechanism can be as follows: the water retaining mechanism comprises a sealing ring 42 arranged between the splash-proof cover 39 and the container 1, and the sealing ring 42 realizes water sealing and basically stops the outward splashing of the cleaning liquid.
Usually, the splash guard 39 is detachably connected to the container 1, and the splash guard 39 is removed to clean the toilet area 4 and replace the scrubber. The splash guard 39 is usually only mounted on the container 1, but for further stability, detachable connections such as snap connections, screw connections, etc. may of course be used between the splash guard 39 and the container 1.
After the splash guard cover 39 is arranged, the splash guard part 10 can be arranged on the splash guard cover 39, namely, the splash guard cover 39 is provided with a clapboard, the splash guard cover 39 covers the brushing area, the clapboard can stretch into the container 1, so that the circulating channel surrounds the clapboard.
As a preferable structure, a water filtering port 43 may be opened on a side wall of the container 1, and the height of the cleaning liquid in the container 1 does not exceed the position of the water filtering port. After the fruits and vegetables are cleaned, the cleaning liquid can be poured out through the water filtering port 43, and the fruits and vegetables are intercepted in the container 1 and cannot be poured out from the water filtering port.
As a preferable structure, the container 1 is provided with a draining basket 44, fruits and vegetables are contained in the draining basket 44 during cleaning, and the draining basket 44 is lifted after cleaning. The bottom of the draining basket 44 preferably substantially conforms to the bottom of the container 1 to avoid loss of space in the container 1, and by "substantially conforming" is meant that the bottom of the draining basket 44 may substantially conform to the bottom of the container 1, or that there may be a small distance therebetween. In order to take out the draining basket 44 conveniently, the draining basket 44 is provided with a notch, and the brushing device 2 is positioned in the notch and can basically and completely take out the fruits and vegetables in the container 1.
