Abstract

A spraying head has a feeder channel (21) for a substance, through which a sprayable substance is fed to nozzles (10a,10c). The feeder channel and each nozzle can be coupled directly or indirectly to each other by a relative turning movement between them and uncoupled from each other by a further relative movement. An independent claim is also included for an aerosol can with a spraying head.

Description

  • The The present invention relates to a spray nozzle for aerosol cans according to the preamble of claim 1. Furthermore, the invention relates to an aerosol can or spray can, the such a spray head having.
  • It is known to use spray heads for spraying or applying fluids and paints from aerosol cans. Furthermore, a two-channel spray head is off EP 0 845 298 A1 to produce two different spray patterns with a arranged within the spray can bearing housing.
  • Of the in claim 1 invention is based on the problem with a spray head several spray pattern to create.
  • This Problem is solved by the features listed in claim 1 solved.
  • The advantages achieved by the invention are in particular then to achieve different spray patterns with a spray head. The user does not need to be satisfied with a spray pattern, but has the choice between several spray patterns, which he can select individually according to his requirements quickly and easily. In contrast to spray heads, such as from the patent EP 0 845 298 A1 known, the invention is the entire spray head outside the aerosol can, which is the compatibility with standard aerosol cans, as described for example in DIN EN 15006 receives, and does not make a redesign and approximation of the manufacturing facilities. As a result, the structure of the invention is more compact and space-saving. Since the invention consists of a few components, this is störungsunanfälliger in contrast to spray heads with significantly more parts störungsunanfälliger.
  • applications of the invention are e.g. the spraying of paints and acrylic paints or the application of household, industrial or cosmetic products. Furthermore, only the production of a spray head for different products is required, which in turn protects the environment and saves costs. Thereby are the spray results of better quality as with spray heads with a nozzle, where the user has to be satisfied with a spray pattern. Thus, the consumption of fluid and color by better dosage options reduced.
  • The following is on further advantages and operation of the spray head based on 1 to 13 with subsequent application examples.
  • It shows:
  • 1 : Front view of the spray head
  • 2 : Side view of the spray head
  • 3 Image: View from the bottom of the spray head

  • The spray nozzle for aerosol cans is equipped with 4 nozzles ( 10a -d), the outwardly opening tangent to the circular spray head housing ( 5 ) are arranged. The nozzles ( 10a -d) separated from each other by the in the guide channel ( 17 ) concentric with the spray head housing ( 5 ) and valve tubes ( 4 ) mounted push button ( 3 ) can be turned to the right or left to the next nozzle position. The spray head is activated by locking the anchors ( 7 ) to the spray can ( 6 ), which ensures a reliable attachment of the spray head.
  • In the starting position in 6 u. 7 is the spray orifice ( 9 ) of the pushbutton ( 3 ) over a nozzle ( 10a ), which, for example, generates a coarse spray pattern. Unused nozzles ( 10b -d) through the wall ( 20 ) of the pushbutton ( 3 ). In the pressed state of the push button ( 3 ) the valve opening ( 1 ) through the wall ( 15 ) of the guide channel ( 17 ), whereby the connection of the nozzle channel ( 8a ) and the valve tube ( 4 ) is interrupted. At the same time, all unused nozzle channels ( 8b -d) through the wall ( 16 ) of the valve attachment ( 11 ) locked.
  • In this state, no fluid or paint through the nozzles ( 10a -d) arrive. The can valve ( 4 ) is also closed.
  • By depressing the push button ( 3 ) in the axial direction, as in 8th u. 9 shown, the valve opening ( 1 ) with the nozzle channel ( 8a ). At the same time the valve cap ( 11 ) the valve tube ( 4 ) down, opening the can valve (not shown). Now fluid or color from the valve tube ( 4 ) first in through the wall 16 limited, axially extending feed channel ( 21 ) of the valve attachment ( 11 ). The fluid or the color is in the further course through the valve opening ( 1 ) in the wall ( 16 ) of the feed channel ( 21 ) in the nozzle channel acting as a connecting channel ( 8a ) to the nozzle ( 10a ), where the fluid or the color is finally sprayed. When releasing the push button ( 3 ), the valve tube ( 4 ) by the spring in the aerosol can (not shown here) and consequently the push button ( 3 ) even in their starting positions, as in 6 u. 7 shown, wherein at the valve opening ( 1 ) the passage to the nozzle channel ( 8a ) through the inner wall ( 15 ) of the guide channel ( 17 ) is closed again.
  • Ultimately, therefore, by a relative movement, namely a rotational movement between the nozzles ( 10a -d) and the feed channel ( 21 ) a coupling of the respective selected nozzle with the feed channel ( 21 ) reached. In this coupled state, a conduit of the medium, ie the paint or the fluid, from the supply channel to the coupled nozzle is possible (via the corresponding connection channel 8th (Ad)). The respective coupling of all nozzles is via the common nozzle feed channel ( 21 ) reached. By a further relative movement between the nozzles ( 10a -d) and the feed channel ( 21 ) can be a decoupling of each previously coupled nozzle from the feed channel ( 21 ) can be achieved.
  • In 10 u. 11 is the spray orifice ( 9 ) by turning the in the spray head housing ( 5 ) mounted push button ( 3 ) on a nozzle ( 10c ), which has a finer spray pattern, for example. Unused nozzles ( 10a -b, 10d ) are in turn through the wall ( 20 ) of the pushbutton ( 3 ). At the same time, all unused nozzle channels ( 8a -b, 8d ) through the wall ( 16 ) of the valve attachment ( 11 ) locked. The mode of operation for producing the finer spray pattern is from this step with that for generating a coarser spray pattern, as in the upper section using 8th u. 9 explained.
  • Between each nozzle ( 10a -d) is a closed position, as in 12 u. 13 represented, which by as already described above turning the push button ( 3 ) is selected. The spray orifice ( 9 ) through the outer wall ( 14 ) of the spray head housing ( 5 ) and the nozzles ( 10a -d) through the wall ( 20 ) of the pushbutton ( 3 ) locked. This causes drying or sticking of the nozzles ( 10a -d), which are thus more durable. At the same time, all nozzle channels ( 8a -d) through the wall ( 16 ) of the valve attachment ( 11 ) locked. The valve opening ( 1 ) (in 12 u. 13 not visible) is in turn through the inner wall ( 15 ) of the guide channel ( 17 ) locked. Leakage of the fluid or paint from the nozzles ( 10a -d), which possibly still in the nozzle channels ( 8a -d) is thereby reliably prevented. Pressing the push button ( 3 ) is in this position by the guide pins ( 2 ) by not in the guide rails ( 13 ) (s. 5 ), but on the edge ( 18 ) of the spray head housing ( 5 ) rest. As a result, a cap, which is mostly used for aerosol cans, no longer required to protect against accidental release of the spray head. This in turn saves costs in manufacturing and protects the environment.
  • at Spray heads, which e.g. for car paint spray cans used, only a wide spray pattern is available. This is however unfavorable if e.g. just a little scratch or a To repair scratches in the paint is. The same is true when a large area is painted is to be, with only a too narrow spray pattern is available. In both cases let yourself with the help of the invention by selecting the respective corresponding suitable nozzle to achieve a higher quality result. Furthermore, the danger that by inappropriate nozzles sprayed Paint runs, reduced.
  • A variety of applications also arise with the use of the invention in the cosmetics industry. In conjunction with hair sprays, for example, there are more diverse styling options, since the hair can be specifically treated with fine or coarse spray patterns (eg strands or large-area fixation of the hair). Unlike a spray head, as patent EP 0 845 298 A1 It is known in the invention does not result in a short-term spraying of the non-selected nozzle after changing to another nozzle, which in turn prevents the application of fluid to unwanted areas and in the worst case when using the hair spray in the immediate vicinity of the eye injuries caused by spray ,
  • Furthermore, the nozzles of the invention are arranged so that they are always tangential and centered to the fingertip of the user, which on the support surface ( 19 ) of the pushbutton ( 3 ) is positioned. This allows pinpointing and thereby application of the fluid or paint which is the basis for each spray application.
