Description

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Waschgerät zum Reinigen von Teilen wie Maschinenteilen oder dergleichen, mit einem Gehäuse und einem aufklappbaren Gehäusedeckel, mit einem oberen und einem unteren Düsenrohr, einem um eine vertikale Achse drehbaren Teilebehälter, einem Tank im unteren Bereich des Gehäuses und einer Pumpe, die Reinigungsflüssigkeit aus dem Tank durch Leitungen dem oberen und dem unteren Düsenrohr zuführt, aus deren Düsen die Reinigungsflüssigkeit von oben und von unten auf die Teile gespritzt wird.The invention relates to a washing device for cleaning parts such as machine parts or the like, with a housing and a hinged housing cover, with an upper and a lower nozzle tube, a rotatable about a vertical axis parts container, a tank in the lower region of the housing and a pump Cleaning liquid from the tank through lines to the upper and the lower nozzle tube feeds, from whose nozzles the cleaning liquid is sprayed from above and from below onto the parts.

Derartige Waschgeräte, bei denen die Reinigungsflüssigkeit wieder in einen im unteren Bereich des Gehäuses angeordneten Tank zurückläuft, um bei einem nachfolgenden Reinigungsvorgang erneut verwendet zu werden, sind bekannt. Meist haben solche Waschgeräte eine Heizeinrichtung in dem Tank, mit dem die Reinigungsflüssigkeit bevorzugt auf ca. 80° Celsius erwärmt wird, wodurch die Teile in dem Waschgerät hochgradig wirksam von den Verschmutzungen gereinigt werden können.Such washing devices, in which the cleaning liquid runs back into a arranged in the lower part of the housing tank to be used again in a subsequent cleaning process, are known. Most such washing devices have a heater in the tank, with which the cleaning liquid is preferably heated to about 80 ° C, whereby the parts can be cleaned in the washing device highly effective from the contaminants.

Allen bisher bekannten Waschgeräten der betrachteten Art ist gemeinsam, das die verunreinigt in den Tank zurücklaufende Reinigungsflüssigkeit nur unzureichend von den Verunreinigungen befreit wird, in dem nur ein Teil der Reinigungsflüssigkeit gefiltert wird, und zurück in den Tank gelangt. Außerdem ist der Wärmeverlust der bisher bekannten Waschgeräte sehr hoch, was sich in erheblichen Energiekosten wiederspiegelt.All previously known washing devices of the type under consideration have in common that the contaminated returned to the tank cleaning liquid is insufficiently freed from the impurities in which only a part of the cleaning liquid is filtered, and gets back into the tank. In addition, the heat loss of the previously known washing devices is very high, which is reflected in significant energy costs.

Der vorliegenden Erfindung liegt die Aufgabe zugrunde, ein Waschgerät der betrachteten Art so weiter zu entwickeln, dass die Reinigungsflüssigkeit, das heißt Wasser, dem gegebenenfalls ein Reinigungsmittelzusatz beigegeben ist, für erheblich mehr Reinigungsvorgänge verwendbar ist.The present invention has for its object to develop a washing device of the type considered so that the cleaning liquid, the is water, to which optionally a detergent additive is added, is usable for considerably more cleaning operations.

Diese Aufgabe wird erfindungsgemäß durch die Merkmale des Patentanspruchs 1 gelöst.This object is achieved by the features of claim 1.

Vorteilhafte Ausgestaltungen der Erfindung sind in den Unteransprüchen gekennzeichnet.Advantageous embodiments of the invention are characterized in the subclaims.

Die Erfindung sieht vor, dass unter dem Teilebehälter, in den die zu reinigenden Teile gelegt werden, ein Zwischenboden angeordnet ist, der sich über den gesamten Innenraum des Gehäuses erstreckt und an dessen Innenwänden dicht angesetzt ist. Der Zwischenboden kann dabei aus mehreren Bodenteilen zusammengesetzt sein, die zum Beispiel miteinander verschweißt sein können, und er ist an den Innenwänden des Gehäuses so befestigt, dass keine Reinigungsflüssigkeit zwischen dem Rand des Zwischenbodens und den Innenwänden des Gehäuses durchtreten kann.The invention provides that under the parts container, in which the parts to be cleaned are placed, an intermediate floor is arranged, which extends over the entire interior of the housing and is sealed to the inner walls. The intermediate bottom can be composed of several bottom parts, which can be welded together, for example, and it is fixed to the inner walls of the housing so that no cleaning liquid can pass between the edge of the false bottom and the inner walls of the housing.

Weiter sieht die Erfindung vor, dass der Zwischenboden mit einer Neigung versehen ist und in seinem tiefsten Bereich eine Öffnung aufweist, aus der die auf dem Zwischenboden ablaufende Reinigungsflüssigkeit ausströmt. Unter dieser Öffnung ist ein Filterkasten angeordnet, in den die gesamte Reinigungsflüssigkeit fließt bzw. fällt, wobei der Filterkasten über dem Aufnahmeraum des Tanks angeordnet ist, so dass die durch den Filterkasten durchtretende, von Verunreinigungen befreite Reinigungsflüssigkeit in den Tank zurückkehrt. Da die gesamte Reinigungsflüssigkeit auf diese Weise durch den Filterkasten geleitet wird, kann die Reinigungsflüssigkeit über einen sehr langen Zeitraum verwendet werden, ohne dass sie ausgetauscht werden muss.Furthermore, the invention provides that the intermediate bottom is provided with an inclination and in its deepest region has an opening from which the cleaning liquid draining on the intermediate bottom flows out. Under this opening, a filter box is arranged, in which the entire cleaning liquid flows or falls, the filter box is disposed over the receiving space of the tank, so that the passing through the filter box, removed from impurities cleaning liquid returns to the tank. Since all the cleaning fluid is routed through the filter box in this way, the cleaning fluid can be used for a very long time without having to be replaced.

Das obere Düsenrohr ist zweckmäßigerweise an dem Gehäusedeckel befestigt, während das unsere Düsenrohr unterhalb des Zwischenbodens in Querrichtung des Gehäuses verläuft, wobei seine Düsen dicht durch den Zwischenboden hindurch verlaufen, so dass an diesen Stellen keine Reinigungsflüssigkeit durch den Zwischenboden durchtreten und ungefiltert in den Tank gelangen kann. Da nur die Düsen, nicht jedoch das Düsenrohr über dem Zwischenboden angeordnet sind, sind die erforderliche Bauhöhe des Gehäuseteils über dem Zwischenboden und die Ablagerung von Schmutzstoffen minimiert. Die Düsenrohre sind zweckmäßigerweise durch Schläuche mit der Pumpe verbunden, die mit einem Saugstutzen in den Tank eingreift und mit einem zusätzlichen Filter versehen sein kann. Bei dem Filterkasten, in den die gesamte zurückströmende Reinigungsflüssigkeit fällt, handelt es sich bevorzugt um einen Feinfilter, Der Boden des Filterkastens hat eine Neigung, so dass sich der Filter stets selbsttätig frei spült, Auf diese Weise kann eine Flüssigkeitsmenge von 100 I und mehr pro Minute gefiltert werden.The upper nozzle tube is suitably fixed to the housing cover, while our nozzle tube extends below the intermediate bottom in the transverse direction of the housing, with its nozzles passing tightly through the intermediate bottom, so that no cleaning liquid passes through at these locations pass through the false bottom and can get into the tank unfiltered. Since only the nozzles, but not the nozzle tube are arranged above the intermediate floor, the required height of the housing part over the false floor and the deposition of contaminants are minimized. The nozzle tubes are suitably connected by hoses to the pump, which engages with a suction nozzle in the tank and can be provided with an additional filter. The bottom of the filter box has a slope, so that the filter always flushes automatically automatically, in this way, a liquid amount of 100 I and more per Minute to be filtered.

Der Zwischenboden verläuft vorteilhafterweise von der Rückseite des Gehäuses zu dessen Vorderseite hin schräg, dass heißt mit einer vorzugsweise konstanten Neigung.The intermediate bottom advantageously extends obliquely from the rear side of the housing to the front side thereof, that is to say with a preferably constant inclination.

Der Zwischenboden erstreckt sich - wie oben gesagt - über den gesamtem Innenraum des Gehäuses. Dabei wird ein Deckel als zu dem Zwischenboden gehörig betrachtet, der eine Aussparung in der im wesentlichen ebenen Zwischenbodenwand überdeckt, wobei die Aussparung, die vorzugsweise eine rechteckige Grundrissform hat, von bevorzugt vertikal nach oben verlaufenden Randabschnitten des Zwischenbodens begrenzt ist, auf denen der Deckel aufliegt. Der Deckel übergreift vorzugsweise mit einem nach unten umgebogenen Rand die weitgehend umlaufenden Randabschnitte der Aussparung. Der nach oben verlaufende Rand der Aussparung dient einerseits zur Auflage des Deckels, und andererseits zur Wasserführung, damit die gesamte Reinigungsflüssigkeit zu der Öffnung gelangt, aus der sie in den Filterkasten fällt.The intermediate floor extends - as stated above - over the entire interior of the housing. In this case, a cover is considered as belonging to the intermediate bottom, which covers a recess in the substantially flat intermediate bottom wall, wherein the recess, which preferably has a rectangular plan shape, is limited by preferably vertically upwardly extending edge portions of the intermediate bottom on which the lid rests , The cover preferably overlaps with a downwardly bent edge of the substantially peripheral edge portions of the recess. The upwardly extending edge of the recess serves on the one hand to support the lid, and on the other hand to the water flow, so that the entire cleaning liquid reaches the opening from which it falls into the filter box.

Der Deckel ist entweder abnehmbar oder er kann auch angelenkt sein, so dass er aufklappbar ist.The lid is either removable or it can also be hinged so that it is hinged.

Die Aussparung befindet sich über dem Filterkasten, so dass der Filterkasten zur Inspizierung und gegebenenfalls zum Austausch des Filters in dem Filterkasten bzw. zur Entleerung des Filterkastens zugänglich ist, wenn der Deckel abgenommen oder gegebenenfalls aufgeklappt ist. Der Deckel könnte auch aus einem durchsichtigen Material bestehen, so dass eine vor dem Waschgerät stehende Bedienungsperson auch ohne Entnahme oder Aufklappen des Deckels den jeweiligen Zustand des Filterkastens sehen kann.The recess is located above the filter box, allowing the filter box to inspect and, if necessary, replace the filter in the filter box or is accessible for emptying the filter box when the lid is removed or possibly unfolded. The lid could also consist of a transparent material, so that an operator standing in front of the washing machine can see the respective state of the filter box even without removing or unfolding the lid.

Die Aussparung befindet sich im vorderen Bereich des Gerätes, wo auch der Filterkasten angeordnet ist, und erstreckt sich zweckmäßigerweise bis in die Nähe der Düsen des unteren Düsenrohres.The recess is located in the front region of the device, where the filter box is arranged, and expediently extends to the vicinity of the nozzle of the lower nozzle tube.

Zwischen den Seitenwänden des Gehäuses und den seitlichen, nach oben verlaufenden Randabschnitten der Aussparung verbleibt ein Abstand, so dass hier zwei Fließkanäle gebildet sind, durch die die auf den hinteren Teil des Zwischenbodens aufgetroffene Reinigungsflüssigkeit zur Vorderwand des Gehäuses fließt. Die durch die seitlichen Rinnen strömende Reinigungsflüssigkeit spült dabei alle mitgeführten Schmutzstoffe in den Filterkasten. Auch hier befindet sich ein Abstand zwischen der Aussparung und der Vorderwand, wobei zu beiden Seiten der Austrittsöffnung kurze nach oben verlaufende Randabschnitte ausgebildet sein können, um die Reinigungsflüssigkeit vollständig zu der Öffnung zu führen. Die Öffnung kann dadurch gebildet sein, das der Bereich zwischen den kurzen, nach oben verlaufenden Randabschnitten schräg nach unten gebogen ist, um die ausströmende Reinigungsflüssigkeit glatt in Richtung des darunter angeordneten Filterkastens zu führen.Between the side walls of the housing and the side, upwardly extending edge portions of the recess remains a distance, so that here two flow channels are formed, through which the impacted on the rear part of the false floor cleaning liquid flows to the front wall of the housing. The cleaning liquid flowing through the side channels flushes all entrained contaminants into the filter box. Again, there is a distance between the recess and the front wall, wherein on both sides of the outlet opening short upwardly extending edge portions may be formed to guide the cleaning fluid completely to the opening. The opening may be formed by the area between the short, upwardly extending edge portions is bent obliquely down to smoothly guide the effluent cleaning fluid in the direction of the underlying filter box.

Wenn im Betriebszustand demnach der Deckel die Aussparung des Zwischenbodens überdeckt, wird die gesamte Reinigungsflüssigkeit zu der Austrittsöffnung des Zwischenbodens geführt und fließt bzw. fällt in den Filterkasten.If, in the operating state, the cover thus covers the recess of the intermediate bottom, the entire cleaning liquid is led to the exit opening of the intermediate bottom and flows or falls into the filter box.

Nach einem weiteren Vorschlag der Erfindung sind das Gehäuse und der Gehäusedeckel wärmeisoliert. Hierzu wird vorgeschlagen, dass jeweils zwischen einem äußeren und einem inneren Stahlblech, vorzugsweise Edelstahlblech, eine Schicht aus PUR-Schaum angeordnet ist. Weiter wird mit großem Vorteil vorgeschlagen, das auch der Zwischenboden wärmeisoliert ist, so dass der untere Teil des Gehäuses, in dem sich der Tank mit der heißen Reinigungsflüssigkeit befindet, besonders wirkungsvoll gegen Wärmeverlust isoliert ist. In einer bevorzugten Ausführungsform der Erfindung setzt sich der Zwischenboden an den Rändern zu einer vertikalen Innenwand des Gehäuses fort, zwischen der und der zugehörigen Außenwand ebenfalls PUR-Schaum angeordnet sein kann.According to a further proposal of the invention, the housing and the housing cover are thermally insulated. For this purpose, it is proposed that in each case between an outer and an inner steel sheet, preferably stainless steel sheet, a layer of PUR foam is arranged. Next will be a great advantage proposed that the intermediate bottom is thermally insulated, so that the lower part of the housing in which the tank is located with the hot cleaning liquid, is particularly effectively isolated against heat loss. In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the intermediate bottom continues at the edges to a vertical inner wall of the housing, between which and the associated outer wall also PUR foam can be arranged.

Durch diese vorzugsweise auch den Zwischenboden einbeziehenden Wärmeisolierung lässt sich der Energieverbrauch für das Aufheizen der Reinigungsflüssigkeit erheblich senken.By virtue of this heat insulation, which preferably also includes the intermediate floor, the energy consumption for heating up the cleaning liquid can be considerably reduced.

Die Figuren zeigen eine bevorzugte Ausführungsform des erfindungsgemäßen Waschgeräts. Das Waschgerät hat ein auf Füßen 1 stehendes Gehäuse 2 und einen um ein rückwärtiges Gelenk 3 aufklappbaren Gehäusedeckel 4.The figures show a preferred embodiment of the washing device according to the invention. The washing device has a housing 2 standing on feet 1 and a housing cover 4 which can be opened by a rear joint 3.

Innen an dem Gehäusedeckel 4 ist ein oberes Düsenrohr 5 angebracht, das über einen Schlauch 6 mit einer im unteren Teil des Gehäuses 2 angeordneten Pumpe 8 verbunden ist. Ein unteres Düsenrohr 9 ist auf gleiche Weise mit der Pumpe 8 verbunden. Die Pumpe 8 ragt mit einem Saugstutzen 10 in einen Tank 11, der im unteren Teil des Gehäuses 2 untergebracht ist, hinein, um Reinigungsflüssigkeit aus dem Tank 11 den Düsenrohren 5 und 9 zuzuführen.Inside the housing cover 4, an upper nozzle tube 5 is attached, which is connected via a hose 6 with a pump 8 arranged in the lower part of the housing 2. A lower nozzle tube 9 is connected to the pump 8 in the same way. The pump 8 projects with a suction nozzle 10 into a tank 11, which in the Lower part of the housing 2 is housed, in order to supply cleaning liquid from the tank 11 to the nozzle tubes 5 and 9.

Ein Teilebehälter 12 in Form eines sich um eine vertikale Achse drehbaren Korbes ist oberhalb des unteren Düsenrohres 9 drehbar gelagert. In diesem Korb werden die zu reinigenden Teile abgelegt, die aus Düsen des oberen Düsenrohres 5 und des unteren Düsenrohres 9 von oben und unten mit Reinigungsflüssigkeit angespritzt werden.A parts container 12 in the form of a rotatable about a vertical axis basket is rotatably mounted above the lower nozzle tube 9. In this basket, the parts to be cleaned are stored, which are molded from nozzles of the upper nozzle tube 5 and the lower nozzle tube 9 from above and below with cleaning liquid.

Unter dem Teilebehälter 12 ist ein Zwischenboden 13 angeordnet, der sich über den gesamten Innenraum des Gehäuses 2 erstreckt. Der Zwischenboden 13 verläuft schräg von der Rückseite 14 des Gehäuses 2 zu dessen Vorderseite 15. Der Zwischenboden 13 enthält einen rückwärtigen ebenen (schrägverlaufenden) Abschnitt 16, durch den Düsen 17 des darunter in Querrichtung des Gehäuses verlaufenden unteren Düsenrohres 9 nach oben hindurchtreten. Geeignete Dichtungen sorgen dafür, dass hier keine Reinigungsflüssigkeiten durch den Zwischenboden 13 nach unten durchtreten können. Der ebene Abschnitt 16 erstreckt sich etwas weiter als die Hälfte des Innenraums des Gehäuses 2. In der dargestellten Ausführungsform wird ein die Düsen umschließender, rechteckiger Abschnitt 18 des ebenen Abschnitts 16 des Zwischenbodens 13 durch ein Blech gebildet, das mit dem Blech des übrigen Abschnitts 16 dicht zusammengesetzt ist.Under the parts container 12, an intermediate bottom 13 is arranged, which extends over the entire interior of the housing 2. The intermediate bottom 13 extends obliquely from the rear side 14 of the housing 2 to the front side 15. The intermediate bottom 13 includes a rear plane (oblique) portion 16, pass through the nozzle 17 of the lower nozzle tube 9 extending below in the transverse direction of the housing upwards. Suitable seals ensure that no cleaning fluids can pass through the intermediate bottom 13 down here. The flat portion 16 extends slightly further than half of the interior of the housing 2. In the illustrated embodiment, a nozzle enclosing, rectangular portion 18 of the flat portion 16 of the intermediate bottom 13 is formed by a metal sheet, which is connected to the sheet of the remaining portion 16th is densely assembled.

Aus dem Zwischenboden 13 ist eine rechteckige Aussparung 19 ausgeschnitten, deren Rand sich vertikal nach oben erstreckt. Dieser Rand dient zur Auflage eines in den Figuren 6 und 7 dargestellten Deckels 20, der an drei Seiten einen nach unten umgebördelten Rand 21 aufweist, der den Rand 22 der Aussparung 19 übergreift. Der Deckel 20 ist abnehmbar, wodurch ein unter dem Zwischenboden 13 an der Vorderwand des Gehäuses 2 positionierter Filterkasten 23 sichtbar wird, der entnommen und gereinigt (oder ausgetauscht) wird, wenn sich eine entsprechende Menge von Schmutzstoffen darin angesammelt hat. Der Boden (33) des Filterkastens verläuft schräg, so dass er während des Betriebs des Gerätes stets selbsttätig freigespült wird.From the intermediate bottom 13, a rectangular recess 19 is cut out, the edge of which extends vertically upwards. This edge serves as a support in the FIGS. 6 and 7 illustrated lid 20, which has a downwardly flanged edge 21 on three sides, which engages over the edge 22 of the recess 19. The lid 20 is removable, whereby a filter box 23 positioned below the intermediate floor 13 on the front wall of the housing 2 becomes visible, which is removed and cleaned (or exchanged) when a corresponding quantity of contaminants has accumulated therein. The bottom (33) of the filter box runs obliquely so that it is always flushed free during operation of the device.

Wie insbesondere Fig. 3 zeigt, fließt beim Waschvorgang (bei dem sich der Deckel 20 auf dem Rand 22 der Aussparung 19 befindet) die durch Pfeile dargestellte Reinigungsflüssigkeit zu dem querverlaufenden Rand 24 und von dort durch die von den Randabschnitten 25 und den Seitenwänden des Gehäuses 2 begrenzte Kanäle 26 beidseitig in einen vorderen Kanal 27, der durch die Vorderwand des Gehäuses 2 und kurze Randabschnitte 28 begrenzt ist. Der mittlere Bereich dieses streifenförmigen Abschnitts 29 des Zwischenbodens 13 enthält keine nach oben verlaufende Randkante, sondern ist - wie insbesondere Fig. 5 zeigt - schräg nach unten abgebogen, wodurch eine Öffnung 30 gebildet ist, durch die die gesamte Reinigungsflüssigkeit nach unten in den Filterkasten 23 strömt. Nach Durchgang durch den Filter gelangt die von Verschmutzungen befreite Reinigungsflüssigkeit in den Tank 11.In particular Fig. 3 shows, during the washing process (in which the lid 20 is located on the edge 22 of the recess 19), the cleaning liquid shown by arrows to the transverse edge 24 and from there through the limited by the edge portions 25 and the side walls of the housing 2 channels 26 on both sides in a front channel 27, which is bounded by the front wall of the housing 2 and short edge portions 28. The central region of this strip-shaped portion 29 of the intermediate bottom 13 contains no upwardly extending edge, but is - as in particular Fig. 5 shows - bent obliquely downwards, whereby an opening 30 is formed, through which the entire cleaning liquid flows down into the filter box 23. After passing through the filter, the cleaning liquid freed from contamination enters the tank 11.

Wie insbesondere die Fig. 4 und 5 zeigen, hat der Zwischenboden 13 allgemein eine Trogform, dass heißt von seinen Rändern erstrecken sich einstückig Randabschnitte 31 nach oben, die in einem kleinen Abstand zu der umgebenden Gehäusewand verlaufen. Der Zwischenraum wird mit PUR-Schaum gefüllt, womit dieser Bereich wärmeisoliert ist. Auch die übrigen Bereiche des Gehäuses 2 und der Deckel 4 können durch einen entsprechenden dreischichtigen Aufbau - zwei Edelstahlbleche mit dazwischenliegendem PUR-Schaum-wärmeisoliert sein, so dass der Energieverbrauch des Waschgerätes signifikant verringert ist.How the particular 4 and 5 show, the intermediate bottom 13 has a trough shape in general, that is, from its edges integrally extending edge portions 31 upwardly, which extend at a small distance from the surrounding housing wall. The space is filled with PUR foam, which is this area thermally insulated. The remaining areas of the housing 2 and the cover 4 can be thermally insulated by a corresponding three-layer construction - two stainless steel sheets with interposed PUR foam, so that the energy consumption of the washing device is significantly reduced.

Gemäß der vorliegenden Erfindung ist sichergestellt, dass die gesamte Reinigungsflüssigkeit in den Filterkasten 23 gelangt, in dem ein Zwischenboden fest an den Innenwänden des Gehäuses 2 angebracht wird. Durch die Aussparung 19, die beim Betrieb des Waschgerätes abgedeckt ist, ist der Filterkasten 23 von oben zugänglich. Die Pumpe 8 und die zugehörigen Aggregate sind durch eine Aussparung 32 im unteren Teil einer Wand des Gehäuses 2 zugänglich.According to the present invention, it is ensured that the entire cleaning liquid passes into the filter box 23, in which an intermediate bottom is fixedly attached to the inner walls of the housing 2. Through the recess 19, which is covered during operation of the washing device, the filter box 23 is accessible from above. The pump 8 and the associated units are accessible through a recess 32 in the lower part of a wall of the housing 2.

Es wird betont, dass die Erfindung nicht auf die beschriebenen und dargestellten Ausführungsformen beschränkt ist. Vielmehr sind alle offenbarten Merkmale auf jede sinnvolle Weise einzeln miteinander kombinierbar.It is emphasized that the invention is not limited to the described and illustrated embodiments. Rather, all disclosed features can be individually combined with each other in any meaningful way.
