The expansion chamber 54A is preferably common to several distribution orifices 54 thus making it possible to economically obtain a large-volume expansion chamber acting as a silencer. According to FIG. 5, the deflector plate 4 bears, at the level of the second diffusion chamber 52, over the entire periphery of the expansion chamber 54A, with the exception of an exhaust zone consisting of a recess 54B, by which the vapor flow illustrated by arrows can escape, the deflector plate 4 extending parallel to the recess 54B, over a length of the order 2 to 5 mm, defining a space for the passage of the vapor flow at which the height is gradually reduced to reach a height h2 of the order of 0.4 mm at the edge of the deflector plate 4.

According to FIG. 6, the deflector plate 4 extends, at the level of the first diffusion chamber 51, in the direction of an exhaust zone consisting of a recess 50B formed at the front of the body 5, a space for the passage of the steam flow, a height h3 of the order of 0.4 mm, being formed between the deflector plate 4 and the body 5 in the vicinity of the outlet of the expansion chamber 50A, this space s' extending to recess 50B. According to FIGS. 4 and 7, the steam dispensing orifices 50, 54 open onto the upper face of the body 5 in a steam distribution circuit delimited laterally by a peripheral wall 55 and intermediate walls 56 obtained directly from molding with the body. 5, the steam distribution circuit being closed in its upper part by a lid 6, the latter being attached by bonding to the walls 55, 56. The steam distribution circuit comprises a steam inlet orifice 62 formed in the cover 6, this orifice 62 having a small passage section and opening into a first expansion chamber 11 of the steam distribution circuit at which the passage section increases strongly, this first expansion chamber 11 being disposed at the edge of the peripheral wall 55, near the rear part of the body 5, and extending over a branch of a ch U-shaped horn 7 integrated in the body 5.

The first expansion chamber 11 then communicates with an overheating channel 12 whose role is to vaporize all the condensates still present in the steam flow, the superheating channel 12 having a reduced passage section, substantially constant, and serpenting in the body 5 over a length advantageously greater than 200 mm and preferably of the order of 300 mm. For this purpose, the overheating channel 12 runs along the rear part of the peripheral wall 55 and winds in the volume of the body 5 disposed next to the first expansion chamber 11, bypassing a boss 57 intended to receive a control thermostat of the heating resistor 7, then opens into a second expansion chamber 13, formed in the front central part of the body 5, whose role is to minimize the speed of the vapor flow.

Preferably, the first and the second expansion chamber 11, 13 have a passage section more than thirty times greater than the passage section of the orifice 62 of arrival of steam and more than ten times greater than the sum of passage sections of the dispensing ports 50, 54 of steam.

By way of example, the passage cross section of the steam inlet orifice 62 is of the order of 10 mm 2, the passage cross section of the expansion chambers 11, 13 is of the order of 500 mm 2, the cross section The passage of the overheating channel 12 is of the order of 80 mm 2 and the cumulative passage cross section of the steam distribution ports 50, 54 is of the order of 40 mm 2.

In order to allow the realization of a first and a second expansion chamber 11, 13 of large volume in a body 5 having a reduced lateral space, the first and second chambers 11, 13 are advantageously arranged in part in the volume of the body 5 and partly in a cavity 61, 63 formed in the closure cover 6, visible in FIG. 2.

Preferably, the steam distribution circuit comprises studs 58, 65 protruding forming obstacles to the flow of steam flowing in the steam distribution circuit, these pads 58, 65 to limit turbulence and therefore the noise in the steam distribution circuit. These pads 58, 65 have a rounded shape and are advantageously equitably distributed between the body 5 and the lid 6, the first expansion chamber 11 and the second expansion chamber 13 each having more than ten pads 58 rising in height. column from an upper surface of the body 5, the pads 58 being spaced from each other by less than 1 cm. According to FIGS. 5 and 8, the cover 6 advantageously comprises, facing each stud 58 of the body 5, a stud 65 extending towards the body 5 from a lower surface of the cover 6, a free space of a few millimeters being formed between the upper ends of the studs 58 supported by the body 5 and the lower ends of the studs 65 of the cover 6 so that an intermediate layer results in the steam distribution circuit in which the steam can circulate without encountering obstacles. Preferably, the pads 58, 65 have a slightly frustoconical shape and a rounded upper end having a radius greater than 1.5 mm, the height of the pads 58, 65 being adapted so that the layer of no obstacle is flat and has a thickness of between 2 and 4 mm and preferably of the order of 2.5 mm. In this particular embodiment of the invention, the second expansion chamber 13 communicates with a steam distribution device allowing, in a manner known per se, to send the vapor either to the set of the first and second groups of holes. steam outlet 20 of the sole, or only to the first group 21 of steam outlet holes of the sole 2. The vapor distribution device, which will be described only briefly in the following description, takes the principle operation of the steam distribution device described in detail in the patent application EP2503052.

This vapor distribution device comprises in particular a main duct 16 connecting the second expansion chamber 13 to a front diffusion chamber 14 which supplies the first group 21 of steam outlet holes 20 with steam through the dispensing orifices 50 and comprises a Vertical chimney 16A opening into a distribution chamber 17 of the steam communicating with two lateral distribution chambers 15 which supply the second group of vapor outlet holes 20 with steam via the dispensing orifices 54. The steam distribution device comprises also a hemispherical joint 9 which, at rest, occupies the position shown in solid lines in Figure 8, wherein the vapor from the second expansion chamber 13 passes freely through the main pipe 16 and the vertical chimney 16A then is diffused to the first and second groups 21, 22 of steam outlet holes 20. By pressing a button 30 dispo at the front of the handle of the iron 1, the gasket 9 is moved to a position shown in dashed lines in FIG. 8, in which the gasket 9 blocks the outlet of the vertical stack 16A and prevents the diffusion of steam towards the second group 22 of steam outlet holes 21 thus making it possible to send the entire stream of steam to the first group 21 of steam outlet holes 20 located at the front of the sole. The ironing apparatus thus produced has the advantage of having a steam distribution circuit allowing the diffusion of steam jets through the soleplate with a flow rate greater than 70 gr / min without generating a large noise. Indeed, the baffle plate 4 disposed opposite the dispensing orifices 50, 54 has the advantage of directing the flow substantially parallel to the sole 2, as is illustrated by the arrows in FIGS. 5 and 6, of FIG. so that the flow flows perpendicularly to the steam outlet holes 20 of the soleplate, which limits the noise of steam jets. In addition, the deflector plate 4 makes it possible to limit the turbulence at the outlet of the expansion chamber 50A, 54A by orienting the flow of vapor parallel to the soleplate 2. The deflector plate 4 also makes it possible to limit the whistling phenomenon. producing when the fluid passes successively through at least two openings of similar passage section. The studs projecting into the distribution circuit, on either side of the steam flow, also contribute to reducing the noise during the emission of the steam flow by reducing turbulence. In an alternative embodiment illustrated in FIG. 9, the iron may also comprise a porous and deformable element 8 which will be placed in the volume between the baffle plate 4 and the body 5, this element 8 possibly being constituted, for example by a heap of ribbon or stainless steel wire, a stainless steel felt or a pre-oxidized fiber felt. Such a porous and deformable element 8 has the advantage of further limiting the noise of the vapor flow, while increasing the losses of charges.

Of course, the invention is not limited to the embodiment described and illustrated which has been given by way of example. Modifications are possible, particularly from the point of view of the constitution of the various elements or by substitution of technical equivalents, without departing from the scope of protection of the invention. Thus, in an alternative embodiment not shown, the iron may be removed from the steam distribution device, the steam output of the second chamber is then sent to all of the steam outlet holes.
