Um aufgabengemäß bei einem Dampfbügeleisen eine kostengünstige sowie äußerst montagefreundliche Anti-Tropfvorrichtung zu schaffen, ist erfindungsegemäß vorgesehen, daß die Anti-Tropfvorrichtung ein einteiliges Spritzteil aus elastischem Material ist und als langgestreckte Dichtung (6) ausgebildet ist. In order to create object, according to a steam iron an inexpensive and extremely easy to install anti-drip device is erfindungsegemäß provided that the anti-drip device is a one-piece injection molded part of elastic material and is formed as an elongated seal (6).

Description

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Dampfbügeleisen nach dem Oberbegriff des Anspruchs 1. The invention relates to a steam iron according to the preamble of claim 1.

Bei Dampfbügeleisen wird beim Bügeln mit Dampf der Wasserzulauf aus dem Wassertank in die beheizte Verdampfungskammer über ein Tropfventil geregelt. In steam iron with steam ironing the water supply is controlled from the water tank into the heated evaporation chamber via a drip valve. In der Verdampfungskammer wird das zugeführte Wasser in Abhängigkeit von der Sohlentemperatur verdampft, wobei die gewünschte Temperatur in Abhängigkeit vom zu bügelnden Gewebe vorgewählt wird. In the evaporation chamber, the supplied water is evaporated in dependence on the soleplate temperature, the desired temperature is selected depending on the fabric to be ironed. Diese bekannten Dampfbügeleisen haben den Nachteil, daß bei niedriger Bügelsohlentemperatur mehr Wasser in die Verdampfungskammer fließt als darin verdampft werden kann, so daß nicht verdampftes Wasser aus den Dampfaustrittslöchern in der Bügelsohle austritt und auf dem Bügelgut unerwünschte Wasserflecken hinterläßt. These known steam iron has the disadvantage that, at low soleplate temperature more water flows into the evaporation chamber as it can be vaporized, so that non-evaporated water from the steam outlet holes emerging in said soleplate and leaves unwanted water stains on the article being ironed.

Um diesen Nachteil zu vermeiden, ist es bekannt, den Wasserzufluß aus dem Wassertank in die Verdampfungskammer in Abhängigkeit von der Bügelsohlentemperatur zu regeln. To avoid this drawback, it is known to regulate the flow of water from the water tank into the vaporization chamber, depending on the soleplate temperature. So ist aus der DE-OS 44 10 408 ein Dampfbügeleisen bekannt, bei dem ein mit der Bügelsohle in Wirkverbindung stehender Bimetallregler direkt auf das Tropfventil einwirkt. Such a steam iron is known from DE-OS 44 10 408 in which a in operative connection with the soleplate bimetal acts directly on the drip valve. Bekannt ist aber auch eine Anti-Tropfvorrichtung, die im Zulaufkanal zwischen Wassertank und Tropfventil angeordnet ist. but is also known an anti-drip apparatus which is disposed in the inlet passage between the water tank and the drip valve. Diese Vorrichtung besteht aus vielen Einzelbauteilen und erfordert mehrere zusätzliche Ultraschallschweißvorgänge sowie erheblichen Montageaufwand. This device consists of many individual components and requires multiple additional ultrasonic welding operations and considerable assembly effort.

Es ist die Aufgabe dieser Erfindung, ausgehend vom gattungsgemäßen Stand der Technik eine kostengünstige sowie äußerst montagefreundliche Anti-Tropfvorrichtung zu schaffen. It is the object of this invention, starting to provide an inexpensive and very easy to install anti-drip device from the generic state of the art.

Gelöst wird diese Aufgabe durch die kennzeichnenden Merkmale des Anspruchs 1. This object is achieved by the characterizing features of claim 1.

Dies wird erfindungsgemäß dadurch erreicht, daß die Anti-Tropfvorrichtung eine langgestreckte elastische Dichtung mit integriertem Verschlußelement und Rückholfeder ist und als einteilieges Spritzteil ausgebildet ist. This is inventively achieved in that the anti-drip device is an elongate resilient seal with integrated sealing member and the return spring and is formed as einteilieges molded part. Die Anti-Tropfvorrichtung steht in Wirkverbindung mit einem von der Bügelsohle beheizten Bimetallfeder, so daß über das Verschlußelement und die Rückholfeder der Zufluß aus dem Wassertank zum Tropfventil in Abhängigkeit von der Bügelsohlentemperatur geregelt wird. The anti-drip device is in operative connection with a heated bimetal of the soleplate, so that is controlled by the shutter member and the return spring, the inflow from the water tank to the drip valve in dependence on the soleplate temperature. Das Verschlußelement weist einen Dichtkonus auf und sein freies Ende ragt durch die Zuflußöffnung in den Wassertank, so daß eine zusätzliche Führung für das Verschlußelement entfällt. The closure element has a sealing cone and its free end projects through the inlet opening into the water tank, so that an additional guide for the closure element is eliminated. Da die Anti-Tropfvorrichtung aus einem elastischen Material besteht, ist eine zusätzliche Abdichtung im Bereich des Tankbodens nicht erforderlich. Since the anti-drip device consists of an elastic material, an additional seal in the region of the tank bottom is not necessary. Zusätzlich dient die Dichtung als Dichtung zwischen Tropfventil und Tankboden und bildet vorteilhaft den Wasserzulaufkanal zwischen Wassertank und Tropfventil. In addition, the seal acts as a seal between the drip valve and the tank bottom and advantageously forms the water supply channel between the water tank and the drip valve. Vorteilhaft ist die Anti-Tropfvorrichtung ein Silikonspritzteil, so daß bei jedem Hubvorgang eventuell angesetzter Kalk durch die Walkbewegung vom Dichtkonus abspringt und somit ein Verkalken im Bereich der Zuflußöffnung nicht entsteht. the anti-drip device is a silicone injection molding advantageous so that with each stroke may be translated lime jump off by the flexing movement of the seal cone and thus calcification does not arise in the area of ​​inflow.

Ein Ausführungsbeispiel der Erfindung ist in den Zeichnungen dargestellt und wird nachfolgend näher beschrieben. An embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the drawings and will be described in more detail below. Es zeigen: Show it:

Figur 1 zeigt ein Dampfbügeleisen mit einem Wassertank 1, einer Bügelsohle 2 und einem bekannten Tropfventil 3. In der Bügelsohle 2 ist eine Verdampfungskammer 4 vorgesehen. 1 shows a steam iron with a water tank 1, a sole plate 2 and a known drip valve 3. In the soleplate 2 an evaporation chamber 4 is provided. Der Wasserzufluß aus dem Wassertank 1 in die Verdampfungskammer 4 erfolgt über die erfindungsgemäße Anti-Tropfvorrichtung 5 und das Tropfventil 3. The flow of water from the water tank 1 in the evaporation chamber 4 takes place via the inventive anti-dripping device 5 and the drip valve. 3

Die Anti-Tropfvorrichtung 5 ist als einteiliges Spritzteil aus elastischem Material ausgebildet und besteht aus einer langgestreckten Dichtung 6 mit angeformtem Ventilstößel 7 und einer Rückholfeder 8. Der Ventilstoßel 7 ragt zwecks Führung mit seinem freien Ende 9 durch die Zuflußöffnung 10 im Tankboden 11 des Wassertanks 1. Am Ventilstößel 7 ist ein Dichtkonus 12 vorgesehen. The anti-drip device 5 is formed as a one-piece molded part made of elastic material and consists of an elongated seal 6 with integral valve stem 7, and a return spring 8. The Ventilstoßel 7 protrudes for the purpose of guiding with its free end 9 through the inlet opening 10 in the tank bottom 11 of the water tank 1 . Am valve stem 7, a sealing cone 12 is provided. Eine Bimetallfeder 13 ist an der Bügelsohle 2 angeordnet und steht in Wirkverbindung mit der Dichtung 6. Die Bimetallfeder 13 wird von der Bügelsohle 2 beheizt. A bimetallic spring 13 is disposed on the soleplate 2 and is in operative connection with the gasket 6. The bi-metal spring 13 is heated by the soleplate. 2 Der Wasserzufluß aus dem Wassertank 1 in die Verdampfungskammer 4 erfolgt durch die Zuflußöffnung 10 über den von der Dichtung 6 gebildeten Wasserkanal 14 und das Tropfventil 3. Der Wasserzufluß wird mit Hilfe der Anti-Tropfvorrichtung 5 in Abhängigkeit von der Bügelsohlentemperatur geregelt, in dem die von der Bügelsohle 2 beheizte Bimetallfeder 13 den Ventilstößel 7 gegen den Druck der Rückholfeder 8 mehr oder weniger in Richtung Wassertank bewegt und dadurch den Durchflußquerschnitt der Zuflußöffnung 10 verändert. The flow of water from the water tank 1 takes place in the evaporation chamber 4 through the inlet opening 10 through the space formed by the gasket 6 water channel 14, and the drip valve 3. The flow of water is regulated by means of the anti-drip device 5 depending on the soleplate temperature, in which the of of the soleplate 2 heated bimetallic spring 13 moves the valve stem 7 against the force of the return spring 8 more or less in the direction of the water tank and thereby changes the flow area of ​​the inflow opening 10 degrees. Der in der Verdampfungskammer 4 erzeugte Dampf tritt aus den Dampfaustrittsöffnungen 15 in der Bügelsohle 2 aus. The steam generated in the evaporation chamber 4 exits in the soleplate 2 of the steam outlet openings 15 °.

Die Figuren 2 und 3 zeigen die Dichtung 6 mit angeformtem Ventilstößel 7. Die aus elastischem Material bestehende Dichtung 6 liegt mit ihrer Oberfläche 16 am Tankboden 11 an. Figures 2 and 3 show the seal 6 with integral valve stem 7. made of elastic material seal 6 rests with its surface 16 on the tank bottom 11 at. Hierdurch entfällt eine zusätzliche Abdichtung für den Wasserzulaufkanal 14 und das Tropfventilgehäuse 17.
