Description

  • The The invention relates to a metering system and a method of controlled Release of active substances, in particular detergents, cleaning agents, Perfumes, air fresheners and the like, coupled with household appliances Dosing devices, with information about the operating state off the power consumption of a household appliance slips off and on demand Control of the metering device can be used.
  • State of the art
  • The accurate and appropriate dosage of active substances is for a variety of application areas of relevance. Especially in the household sector learns the dosage of active ingredients is of increasing importance preceded in the exact and demand-controlled dosage of the corresponding Established active ingredients is, on the one hand, the environment through resource conservation and prevention of overdoses and overdoses on the other hand the efficiency of the dosed active ingredients is optimized.
  • Dosing of detergents in dishwashers
  • cleaning supplies for dishwashers today often used in the form of detergent tablets. Although the application and dosage for the user comparatively is simple and convenient, the drug release takes place However, the tablets are not optimized in terms of rinsing and drying cycles the respective dishwasher.
  • Dosing devices for dispensing cleaning agents during the washing cycles of a dishwasher are, for example WO2006 / 021764 known. The dispensing of cleaning agents is controlled by a bimetal that triggers a spring mechanism upon reaching a predetermined temperature, which causes the release of cleaning agents in the dishwasher.
  • One The main disadvantage of this dosing device is more complex mechanical structure, whereby the cost of their production are high. Furthermore, the release mechanism can only by exceeding or falling below defined temperatures in the dishwasher triggered become. A possibility, other parameters for triggering to use the release of detergent does not exist here.
  • Furthermore, the off WO2006 / 021764 known device not suitable to release liquid or gelatinous preparations. However, this would be particularly advantageous, since higher concentrations of active compound than in solid dosage forms such as powders or tablets can usually be realized in liquids or gels.
  • Dosing of detergents in washing machines
  • laundry detergent are now commonly over a Dosing drawer of the washing machine dosed into the drum filled with laundry. The Dosing is done by rinsing the dosing drawer with water, whereby the detergent dissolved or entrained and in the laundry drum is directed. The Dosierschublade can have three chambers, wherein one for the inclusion of a detergent for the pre-wash, a for Inclusion of a detergent for the main wash and a trained for receiving a softener is.
  • One Problem of these dosing drawers is that the dosage the detergent from the drawer can be controlled only conditionally. Usual way is immediately at the beginning of a wash cycle by rinsing the Dosing drawer with water the whole in the appropriate chamber registered detergent quantity in the washing drum. A exact, time-varying dosage of detergent within one Washing is not possible.
  • Of Furthermore, dosing balls are known for metering detergents. which are filled with a defined amount of detergent and directly into the Washing drum to be cleaned with the laundry to be cleaned. Here too there is the disadvantage that a controlled release of detergent not happened.
  • Of Furthermore, it is known that many preparations, in particular washing and cleaning preparations, Surfactants and both anionic and nonionic surfactants and especially surfactant mixtures contained in the redissolution in water tend to form gel phases. Already with Tensidgehalten of 15% by weight and above On the means, it can be used in the re-dissolution of the agent in water too undesirable and delays Gullies are coming.
  • In particular, by a one-time, surge-like dosage, as is customary today, for example, largely by washing or cleaning tablets, it may happen that during the supply of such surfactant preparations, for example, during a cleaning cycle of a dishwasher, the preparations immediately after dosing in the dishwasher interior and the Contact with water can be coated by gel layers, which then give a quick dissolution also of the gel layer Prevent enclosed preparation. This effect is all the more pronounced, the larger the dosing amount is, which is delivered once gushing and the colder the water is in which the preparation is to be dissolved.
  • This can lead to, that at the end of the washing program repay any leftovers in the dishwasher or on the dishes stay behind and maybe not enough Surfactant during of the washing program is released to a satisfactory cleaning performance of the preparation to effect. These adverse effects in the dosage of zur Gelling tending surfactant formulations are not on the range limited to washing dishes, but are also known in the field of textile cleaning and toilet care.
  • It Therefore, a metering device is desirable for gelling Tending surfactant mixtures releases such that a gelling as far as possible prevented or at least significantly reduced.
  • Measuring the consumption of electrical consumers
  • devices and method for measuring the consumption of electrical consumers in an electricity network are known from the prior art.
  • For example, disclosed DE60104227 a method and apparatus for measuring the consumption of an electrical load in an electricity grid.
  • Further methods for identifying electrical devices based on the measurement of power consumption are, for example, in US5483153 . US4858141 or FR2680875 disclosed.
  • These Methods have been used to determine the energy consumption of individual Consumers in an electrical network used the actual Consumption of individual electrical consumers, such as a washing machine or a refrigerator, to investigate.
  • From DE60104227 known device is also able to identify certain operating conditions, for example a washing machine, from the power consumption.
