Description

The invention relates to a guide device for Guide and couple a nozzle head to a hose Cleaning device according to the generic features of Claim 1.

A large number of cleaning devices are required for cleaning rooms, especially vacuum cleaners and pressure washers known, the can be moved as a mobile unit on wheels. From the mobile A suction hose or high pressure hose leads to one Guide device on the corresponding suction nozzles or High-pressure cleaning nozzles are attached as the nozzle head. This Guide device usually consists of a rigid Pipe piece, at one end of a hose end section is coupled to a connection to the cleaning device to manufacture. This end of the guide device is in the Usually designed as a handle section. To the other end the guide device is a nozzle head so that the Nozzle head can be guided on the one hand by means of the guide device, on the other hand also through the pipe section with the hose is in suction or pressure connection. There are holding devices for coupling a hose or a nozzle head to the corresponding ends of the pipe sections are known, as a rule these holding devices consist only of cylindrical and slightly tapered pipe sections where a Pipe section of the hose frictionally into one end of the Pipe piece can be used and the pipe piece in turn can be frictionally inserted into a pipe section of the nozzle head is.

The disadvantage here is that the guide device from one rigid pipe section is there, so bad in angled rooms or cannot be used at all. For a variable use of the Vacuum cleaner or high-pressure cleaner is therefore not only one Set of different types of nozzle heads, but often also a set different lengths of pipe included. These are at Parts can be attached to one another to hold pipes or pipes of different lengths. To be able to provide guiding devices. Handling and Carrying a variety of such different tools is cumbersome and hardly possible in practice.

To solve this problem, cleaning devices are known, such as For example, a vacuum cleaner with a replaceable quiver Inclusion of various accessories, as in the DE 93 21 389 U1 is described. Although this enables Cleaning device taking a variety various accessories, but the number of accessories that can be carried, even with such Cleaning device limited. In addition, there is still the problem that the guiding device of hose and / or The nozzle head must be separated if it is extended or shortened shall be. This then makes an interruption of the entire operation required because the operator Switch off the drive of the cleaning device, then the Exchange work and then the Has to put the cleaning device back into operation. This is particularly annoying when the extension or shortening is only required for a short working moment.

To change the length of the guide device at the place of use Nozzle head is also known to be frictional, telescopic to use telescopic pipe sections. Their handling is impractical, however, because they are often either so tight that the adjustment is difficult, or sit so loosely that the length adjusts alone while working.

The object of the invention is a guide device for guiding and coupling a nozzle head and the corresponding one thus the flow-connected end of a hose, in particular Suction hose connected to a cleaning device, to provide such that the length of the guide device is easily adjustable.

This task is performed by a guide device with the Features of claim 1 solved.

Such a guide device enables simple Adjustment of their length because the hose is in corresponding Guiding and holding devices next to their bodies guided and is held. This also creates a suction or pressure flow dispensable through the actual guiding device, so that their individual mutually adjustable sections Particularly easy to train and safe to lock are. Furthermore, the hose can be guided lengthways through the guide at least a part of the guide device is no longer close bend its end section uncontrollably. In addition, one safe guidance of the hose possible because of the hose leads away from the guide device at a distance from the nozzle head and therefore not near the nozzle head on for example lying around a room floor. The replacement of a nozzle head against another nozzle head is like the prior art possible at any time without additional effort.

Advantageous configurations are the subject of dependent Claims. So improve several leadership and Holding devices guide the hose next to the shaft or the telescopic rod, with a final guide and Holding device on the handle section a mostly optimal guidance offers.

By locking mechanisms or corrugations on the guide and Holding devices can be particularly stable in the hose these are determined. Here are the locking mechanisms to accelerate the length adjustment advantageously together with those for locking the telescopic rod on or in the shaft section operable.

A telescope section is particularly simple if the End-side telescopic head for guiding the nozzle head and at the same time also for coupling this and the hose end section is trained. The are advantageously on the telescopic head Recordings for the hose end section, which is usually relative is firmly seated, and the nozzle head that is in operation should be quickly replaceable as separate sections educated.

An embodiment of such a guide device is below with reference to the accompanying drawing described.

As can be seen from the single figure, one is on Cleaning device 1, in particular a vacuum cleaner Hose 2, in particular a suction hose, coupled. So that Hose 2 is not lying on the floor, it is on a mast 3 hangable. Such a mast 3 can about its longitudinal axis be rotatably mounted and made of a conditionally elastic Material be made so that it is pulling through the Hose 2 resiliently goes along with it. Also one Telescopic design of such a mast 3 is, depending on Purpose, conceivable.

The other end of the hose 2 is with its hose end section 4 coupled to a guide device 5. There is also a nozzle head 15 on the guide device 5 coupled. The guide device 5 consists essentially from a shaft 6 and from a telescopic rod 7, which in one Shaft channel 8 of the shaft 6 is displaceable in its longitudinal direction and is locked.

The shaft 6 preferably consists of an elongated section, through which the shaft channel 8 leads, the wall of the outer circumference the telescopic rod 7 is adapted. Preferably at the end a grip section 9 is attached to this central shaft section 6a the shaft 6 formed or attached. The protrudes preferably Handle section 9 laterally in the manner of a pistol grip the central shaft portion 6a away so that the central Shaft section 6a with handle section 9 held horizontally leads diagonally to the front. Of course, the grip section 9 is also can be coupled to the central shaft section 6a via a joint, to be able to adjust the angular position between them.

There is also a locking device 10 on the shaft 6 trained to set or release the Telescopic rod 7 in the shaft channel 8 is used. On Actuating element 11 for the locking device 10 is can be reached conveniently from the handle section 9 or to operate.

On the shaft 6 are one or more shaft guide and -Holding devices for guiding and holding the hose 2 educated. As can be seen from the figure, is a first Shaft guide and holding device 12 in the area of End portion of the shaft 6 formed, the nozzle head 15th is facing. Advantageously, the shaft guide and protrudes -Holding device 12 to the same side of the shaft 6 from away the handle section 9. The shaft guide and Holding device 12 consists essentially of a annular section through which the hose 2 can be passed is.

Optionally, the shaft guide and holding device 12 can also be used an internal corrugation and / or a clamping mechanism 13 be equipped to set the hose 2 in this serves. For quick adjustability of the length of the Guide device 5 is the clamping mechanism 13 at the same time with the locking device 10 for setting the Telescopic rod 7 can be actuated in the shaft channel 8. By means of a additional biasing device can be an adjustment of Clamping mechanism 13 on hoses 2 with different outer circumference respectively.

Advantageously, at least one additional shaft guide and -Holding device 14 from that described above spaced on the shaft 6 or, as shown in the figure, on Handle portion 9 formed or attached. In the illustrated Embodiment consists of this shaft guide and -Holding device 14 from a textile loop, which in one Longitudinal slot of the end of the handle portion 9 is set. The free diameter of the textile loop is by means of a Loop tensioning element 16 adjustable. To be a particularly good one Mobility of the hose 2 in relation to the grip section 9 ensure the textile loop in the longitudinal slot in the extended end portion of the handle portion 9 by means of a screw 17 leading through the slot and the loop attached. The slot width is chosen so that the Loop around the shaft of the screw 17 is pivotable. In the case of a shaft 6 consisting of two or more half-shell-shaped plastic injection molded parts is, the screw 17 also serves to connect the individual Parts of the shaft 6.

At the nozzle head 15 facing end of the telescopic rod 7 is a Telescopic rod head 18, which is preferably laterally in same direction as the shaft guide and -Holding device 12 and the handle portion 9 protrudes from this. At the telescopic rod head 18 is on the side that Shaft 6 faces a receptacle 19 for the Hose end section 4 of the hose 2 is formed. In this Receptacle 19, the hose end section 4 can be releasably fixed, that when the length of the guide device 5 is adjusted does not accidentally slip out of the receptacle 19. Farther is a receptacle 20 in the telescopic head 18 for coupling the Nozzle head 15 formed, the receptacle 20 for coupling of the nozzle head preferably the receptacle 19 for the Schuchend section 4 is opposite to a straight guide an air or fluid flow between the hose 2 and the To allow nozzle head 15.

There are a variety of modifications and variations Guide device possible; for example, the Telescopic rod head 18 as a simple pipe section or similar the shaft guide and described above -Holding devices 12 or 14 may be formed. In this case would the hose 2 be coupled directly to the nozzle head 15, the telescopic rod head 18 expediently stable provides lateral support to the nozzle head 15 by means of Guide device 5 targeted on the floor or along To be able to move walls or ceilings.

Furthermore, the locking device for setting the Telescopic rod 7 on or in the shaft channel 8 at the end of the Shaft 6 may be arranged, which faces the nozzle head 15. The locking device can advantageously be in one should be designed in such a way that they also the Telescopic rod 7 opposite the shaft 6 and the hose 2 opposite the shaft guide and holding device 12 for the Hose 2 locked or released. Furthermore, the shaft 6 e.g. B. in the form of a U-shaped rail with the telescopic rod 7 cross-webs instead of a hollow channel-shaped shaft be trained.

Other configurations of the shaft and the telescopic rod are also possible are conceivable. For example, an elongated shaft 6 be encompassed by a U-shaped telescopic rod. As part of a further embodiment can have a shaft with a therein guided shaft channel for receiving the telescopic rod in its End portion that is spaced from the nozzle head, arcuate run and so pass seamlessly into a grip section. In in this case, however, the telescopic rod would only be inserted possible up to the beginning of the arcuate section of the shaft. To eliminate this disadvantage, the peripheral wall of the shaft however, be so openwork that the telescopic rod can be passed through this opening.

The use of telescopic poles is also different trained telescopic rod heads possible. So are Telescopic rod heads can be trained, in which the recordings for a hose end section 4 or the nozzle head 15 is not directly opposite. You can also use telescopic poles Telescopic heads are provided, the recordings of which differently designed hose end sections or Nozzle head attachments are adapted. For this, the Telescopic head 18 designed to be removable from the telescopic rod 7 be, e.g. B. by a plug or screw connection.
