Abstract

The present invention relates to a dispenser for hand cleaning agents, consisting of a liquid container with an outlet for receiving the cleaning agent with a pressurized gas connection and a sensor which opens a valve when a hand is approached, via which the cleaning agent can be dispensed, in which, according to the invention, a closed compressed gas chamber is attached to the valve is connected, the sensor is fed by a solar cell and the valve which can be triggered by the sensor is connected upstream of the liquid container.

Description

The present invention relates to a hand cleanser dispenser.

Known dispensers for hand cleaning agents consist of a storage container with a spout for the detergent on hand.

The triggering of the flow of funds takes place via a lever, which in the Re gel is manually operated. However, this results in constant contamination with Kei men with it, so that there are concerns about hygiene.

Systems have therefore been proposed in which one on the storage container permanent air pressure is present, which after cleaning a valve the cleaning expels medium via a spout. The medium flow is triggered via a proximity switch that has a corresponding sensor near the outlet having.

So that this device works contactlessly, but is from an installer dependent energy supply for the sensor and the air pressure system (DE 40 29 462) ..

Incidentally, it is a larger system, in which several Soap dispensers are fed by a common compressed air generation.

In contrast, the present invention has the task of one To create dispensers for cleaning agents, which is a non-contact and therefore hy gienisch impeccable dispensing of cleaning agents, but which of an energy supply installed in the building as well as one in the device sensitive battery is independent, so that the attachment to any effortless place of buildings and thus can also take place in those that have no elec have trical lines.  

This task is solved with a dispenser for hand cleaning agents, consisting of a liquid container with a spout to hold the Reini gungsmittel with compressed gas connection and a sensor, which when approaching one hand opens a valve through which the cleaning agent can be dispensed and in which a closed compressed gas chamber is attached to the valve is closed. The sensor is powered by a solar cell and the sensor triggerable valve is upstream of the liquid container.

Such an application is recognizable independently of one in the building energy supply and is based on the knowledge that today's solar cells already with relatively small surfaces and with normal lighting Sufficient electrical in the buildings for the switching process of the valve Provide energy, the triggering also against spring force can follow to an automatic provision in any case, d. H. also with sub guarantee the supply of solar cells.

The compressed gas chamber is particularly preferably provided with a receptacle for a customary CO 2 or N 2 cartridge, the chamber having a piercing mechanism, as described, for. B. from beer dispensers, compressed gas weapons or tire repair sets is known. The chamber can thus have a screw cap on the bottom, which presses the cartridge head against a mandrel when it is screwed on. A more advantageous solution is one in which the cartridge is forced to open against the mandrel via a lever, the lever having a kink that secures it in the open cartridge position.

To relieve the valve, the device points between the cartridge and the former a known pressure reducer.

Alternatively, a hand or foot operated pump can also be provided which the pressure chamber is filled with compressed air in such an amount,  the for multiple cleaning operations such. B. for the application of the entire Reini sufficient funds.

The storage container is preferably a bottle that can be set in the device, which has a window for checking the fill level. The bottle is in screwed a corresponding approach to the valve, the arrangement ste can be selected hanging or hanging, d. H. the outlet of the cleaning agent gravity-assisted downward and the pressurized gas once the application of viscous agents is easier or with low-viscosity Reini agents as well as viscous ventilation to the outside and thus Ver germination or oxidation of the stock prevented. Inert is therefore preferred gases for expelling the agent and for volume compensation in the bottle.

If the arrangement is upright (screw connection at the top), a riser pipe is immersed in the bottle cal. In addition to the riser pipe, compressed gas gets into it and drives the cleaning medium into the outlet with the valve open. To avoid air access and Gas losses through the outlet, which according to the invention is depressurized, show that A check valve on the riser, which the liquid meniscus in the riser stops near the outlet even if the stock level has dropped.

It is also proposed to design the valve as a solenoid valve, since this is particularly easy to connect to the solar cell. The latter has over own energy storage for triggering several switching operations.

The nozzle itself is designed in particular as a foam nozzle since the foam generation is particularly easy with the help of the available compressed gases is.

Ultimately, it is proposed to port the valve with a flow limiter to equip the detergent with it.

The present invention is explained in more detail with reference to the accompanying figures.

Show

Fig. 1 shows a device according to the invention in closed,

Fig. 2 such in the open state.

Fig. 1: The dispenser has a support plate 13 for the storage bottle 15 (liquid keits Containers), the top of the bottle is surrounded by an upper arm 16 , it can also be screwed to this. An insert 14 connected to the valve 5 , which also carries the liquid or foam outlet, engages in the bottle neck. Between the outlet and valve 5 (solenoid valve) there is a quantity limiter 4 , here designed as a short-stroke cylinder with a plunger, which delivers defined quantities of liquid by means of compressed air blasts.

Compressed air passes through the insert 14 into the bottle 15 and is expelled via the riser pipe 18 . In order to keep the meniscus in the riser pipe 18 at the top when the pressure drops, it is provided with a check valve 13 on the head side.

The valve 5 is controlled via the sensor 3 , which (other than shown) is located at a suitable point under the outlet. This can be capacitive or can be triggered by infrared radiation or can be a light barrier.

The voltage supply for the sensor and actuation of the valve takes place via the solar cell 1 or together with the control electronics 2 , which in particular also has an energy store, for example in the form of a capacitor or a battery. Thus, the device is dependent on existing room lighting, but not on its own electrical network.

The valve 5 is preceded by a pressure reducer 6 , which may also be missing in alternative solutions. This sits on a receptacle 7 for the head of a gas cartridge to be opened (N 2 , CO 2 , not shown). The cartridge is pushed into this recording 7 and opened by a mandrel. A lever mechanism is used in this example. This has a knee joint device 10 with a driver 9 for the cartridge chamber 8 . In the present case, the knee joint 10 is stretched (knotted), the chamber 8 is in the upper position, the cartridge is open, pressure is present on the pressure reducer 6 . When lifting the pressure gas chamber 8 , the sensor for the liquid container is also raised and clean at the same time, the insert 14 penetrating into the neck of the container (bottle) and the riser pipe 18 being lowered relative to the bottom thereof.

The knee joint 10 can suitably have a pickup 12 for a housing part (cover), so that when the cover is closed this also raises the compressed gas chamber with the cartridge inside. The housing wall slides over a roller 11 of the knee joint.

Fig. 2 shows this device with the compressed gas chamber 8 open and also shut down the support plate 13 for the fillable with hand cleaning agent before bottle 15th In order to initiate the opening process, the unwinder 11 must first be released from its kink.

As already mentioned at the beginning, the compressed gas chamber 8 can of course also be filled using a hand or foot operated air pump, the compressed gas quantity of course having to be sufficient for several cleaning operations, which is readily possible. The advantage of non-contact dispensing regardless of the filling is retained to ensure the highest possible hygiene.
