Abstract

A steam iron has a tank 10 with more than one compartment separate from one another. This enables the user to apply more than one liquid to the material being ironed or pressed. The tank may be demountable as shown so as to be filled remotely during ironing. <IMAGE>

Description

MULTI-COMPARTMENT TANK STRAM IRON This invention relates to a multi-compartment tank steam iron.

tingle tank hand irons are well known household appliances. They usual lav consist of the iron with a water tank in it. Water in the tank is used to atomize or steam onto the material being pressed or ironed.

These irons however can onlv allow the user to use the same liquid in the tank for both atomizeing and steaming. Currer,tiv liquids tor conditioning and aromatizing fabrics are placed in the washing machine, this is wasteful and not friendly to the environment because most of this liquid is flushed away with the waste water. Moreover, using spray cans during ironing to enhance the fabrics properties is also detrimental to the environment.

According to the present invention the introduction of tank with more than one compartment will allow the user to solace more than one type of liquid in the steam iron s tank at any one time.

This will enable the user to atomize or evaporate different liquids on the material being ironed or pressed without having to refill the tank with a different liquid every time.

Further more designing the multi-cornpartment tank to be demountable and placed remotely during ironing can have advantages of reducing the weight of liquid carried during ironing and hence the effort required to iron. This is of particular importance for industrial uses, where large amounts of liquids are used and refilling the tanks regularlv is time consuming. Moreover in this case bigger multi-compartment tanks can be remotely connected for these heavy duty users.

A specific embodiment of the invention will now be described by way of example witti reference to the accompanying drawinq in which Fig 1 shows a steam iron with a demountable multi-compartment liquid tank in it.

Fig 2 shows a steam iron with it's tank in a remote position.

Fig 3 shows a side view of an inner section of the steam iron with a sliding rod valve.

Referring to figure 1 which is a hand held iron with a multicompartment tank with two sections 1 and 2. The input of the fluids will be controlled by sliding rod valve 9, which through 5 will lead the different liquids into the appropriate compartment. The outputs of the fluids would normally be from 4 the atomizing nozzles and the bottom of the iron, Number 3 and show the thermostat and power lead respectively Referring to figure 2 which shows the remote multi-c:omoartment tank steam iron. number 6 being an empty tank area and 10 the multi-compartment tank with inlets to allow for remote filling as well as filling from 5 when tank 10 tank is mounted in 6.

Referring to figure 3 the sliding rod valve 9 which is shifted in order to fill the different compartments with the appropriate liquid through hole Ii into channels 8.
