Abstract

PURPOSE: To always keep the inner and outer faces of an outlet and the passages in sterilized state by forming a passage space between two pipes consisting of a UV-transmissive material and having a defferent diameter, providing the outside of the outer pipe wall with the fluid inlet and outlet and holding a UV lamp in the inner pipe. CONSTITUTION: A double pipe consisting of quartz or fluororesin is formed by inserting an inner pipe 2 into an outer pipe 3, closing the end 3 of the outer pipe and the end 4 of the inner pipe and sealing a part 5 connecting the pipes 1 and 2. An outlet 6 is disposed close to the end 3 of the outer pipe 1 and an inlet 7 close to the connecting part 5 of the outer pipe 1, a passage 8 constituted between the outer pipe 1 and the inner pipe 2, and the fluid introduced from the inlet 7 is passed through the passage 8 and discharged from the outlet 6. A UV lamp 9 is set in the inner pipe 2. UV is passed through the wall of the inner pipe 2 and outer pipe 1. Accordingly, since the inside of the passage 8 and the periphery of the outer pipe 1 are sterilized by the UV, the inside and outside of the outlet 6 are also constantly sterilized.

【0003】 [0003]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】常に、完全に殺菌状態を保つ蛇口を得ること。 The object of the invention is to be Solved always possible to obtain a faucet to keep a completely sterilized state.

【0004】 [0004]

【発明が解決しようとする問題点】蛇口の内外面が常に完全な殺菌状態に保たれ、それが容易に確認出来、安全、且、消費電力の少いものを得ること。 It is kept always full sterilization state is the inner and outer surfaces of the faucet [invention is a problem to be solved], it easily can be checked, safety, possible to obtain 且, those less power consumption.

【0005】 [0005]

【課題を解決する為の手段】紫外線は、被照射面における紫外線強度と、照射時間の積が一定値以上であれば、 Means for Solving the Problems The ultraviolet rays and ultraviolet intensity on the irradiated surface, if the product of the irradiation time is equal to or greater than a predetermined value,
微生物を完全に殺す事が出来るのは周知の事実である。 Be able to kill to complete the microorganism is a well-known fact.
本発明は、蛇口即ち流体の流出口附近を、蛇口の内、外側共に紫外線殺菌するもので、紫外線透過率のよい材料、即ち石英、或は、弗素樹脂等で、作った2重管、即ち図1に示す様に、外側管1の中に、内側管2を挿入し、各管端部を、外側管端部3、内側管端部4の様に閉ぢ、他端を連結部5の様に封じ、外側管1の端部或は端部近くに流出口6、外側管1の、連結部5の近くに流入口7を設けて、外側管1と内側管2との間に流路8を構成し、流入口7より入った流体が流路8を通って流出口6から排出される様にする。 The present invention, the outlet vicinity faucet or fluid, among faucet, intended to UV sterilizer outside both material having good ultraviolet transmittance, i.e. quartz, or a fluorine resin or the like, double pipe made, namely as shown in FIG. 1, into the outer tube 1, and insert the inner tube 2, the respective tube end, the outer tube end 3, connecting portion 5 closed Dji, the other end as the inner tube end 4 sealed like a, the outlet 6 end of the outer tube 1 or near the end, of the outer tube 1, the inlet 7 is provided in the vicinity of the connecting portion 5, between the outer tube 1 and inner tube 2 constitute the flow path 8, the fluid entering from the inflow port 7 is the manner is discharged from the outlet 6 through the channel 8. 内側管2の内部に、紫外線ランプ9を挿入、固定する。 Inside the inner tube 2, insert the ultraviolet lamp 9, fixed.

【0006】 [0006]

【作用】図1に於て、紫外線は、内側管2、外側管1の管壁を通過し、流路8内部も、外側管1の外周をも、紫外線の及ぶ範囲全部を殺菌するから、流出口6の内側も外側も絶えず殺菌される。 [Action] At a 1, ultraviolet rays pass through the wall of the inner tube 2, the outer tube 1, the internal passage 8 also, the outer periphery of the outer tube 1 is also because sterilize the whole extent of ultraviolet, inner outlet 6 is also outside are constantly sterilized. 実用上は紫外線透過率の最もよい石英で外側管1、内側管2を構成するのがよいが、 Practically outer tube 1 at the best quartz ultraviolet transmittance, but it is preferable to constitute the inner tube 2,
透明な弗素樹脂を使用しても、紫外線をよく通し、目的を達することが出来る。 Be used a transparent fluororesin, through good ultraviolet, we can achieve the purpose.

【0007】 [0007]

【発明の効果】一般に蛇口、即ち流体の流出口は、その内、外面に空気中の浮遊殺菌が附着、汚染するが、蛇口の限定された狭い範囲の汚染であるから、蛇口の内、外面を紫外線透過材料で構成すれば、図1の場合、内側管2内部にある紫外線ランプ9の発する紫外線は、内側管2、外側管1の壁を透過して、流出口6の内側面、外側面、流路8を殺菌する。 Generally faucet according to the present invention, i.e., the outlet of the fluid, of which, Fuchaku floating sterilization in air on the outer surface, but contamination, because contamination of the limited narrow range of faucets, of the faucet, the outer surface by configuring the ultraviolet transmitting material, in the case of FIG. 1, the ultraviolet emitted from the ultraviolet lamp 9 located inside the inner tube 2, inner tube 2 is transmitted through the wall of the outer tube 1, the inner surface of the outlet port 6, the outer side, the flow path 8 to sterilization. 流入口7に送られて来るのは無菌流体であり、流出口6の作用は、浮遊殺菌による流出口6の内、外面の汚染に対して殺菌が完全に行われると充分であるから、例えば、流量毎分数十リットル位の蛇口の殺菌は、5ワット程度の紫外線ランプで充分に機能する。 The sent to the inlet 7 is a sterile fluid, the action of the outflow port 6, of the outflow port 6 due to the stray sterilization, because it is sufficient if sterilization is completely performed on the outer surface of the pollution, for example, , sterilization of the faucet flow rate of each fraction ten liters position is, to function well in the 5 watts of about ultraviolet lamp.

【0008】ランプの点灯中は絶えず殺菌作用が行われて居り、ランプが点灯していない時は、すぐにわかるから、故障の発見は容易である。 [0008] During the lamp lit cage constantly been done bactericidal action, when the lamp is not lit, since understood immediately, the discovery of failure is easy. 紫外線ランプ9は小型のものを用いる事が出来るから、本発明の装置は、小型でも充分の性能をもつ。 Since the ultraviolet lamp 9 can be used as a small device of the present invention has a sufficient performance even in a small size.
