Description

    FIELD OF INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to a hand held spraying-dispensing device for dispensing variety of powders and fibers that are manmade or naturally derived like cotton wool rayon, acrylic, More specifically the invention relates to a compact hand-held dispensing device that is electrically operated in a form of battery operated motorized pump. Although the present invention focuses on the cosmetic and art fields it can be used in many fields and applications that require dispensing fiber in an accurate, fast and effortless manner using a compact hand-held battery operated electric dispensing device.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Over the years numerous powder and fiber dispensers have been used or proposed. Such dispensers made of soft or hard materials using different method of dispensing powder. Some dispense powder by squeezing the container soft walls forcing powder or fiber to flow outwards (U.S. Pat. No. 4,307,823) or some just like a talcum powder dispenser (U.S. Pat. No. 3,237,819) or like a salt shaker, usually a container with a sifter top where the user will shake it over the scalp and try to target the hair thinning area, this method found to be requiring very good skills lots of time and efforts, with this method it is hard to control the dispensed amount of fiber or powder.
  • Other dispensers are using a rubber or plastic bulb or cap that is connected to a container with a tube or mounted on it. And by squeezing the bulb or cap it compresses air into the container that contains the powder or fiber, usually blowing downwards over the fibers agitating them and causing them to dispense through a nozzle. Some of these inventions require the help of another person, two hands (U.S. Ser. No. 11/666,345 U.S. Pat. No. 4,007,858) or one hand (U.S. Ser. No. 11/724,701) the problem with this type of dispensers is that it shoots the fiber in short and strong bursts of air resulting in uneven dispensing and waste of fiber or powder. The user has to continuously squeeze and release causing him to lose accuracy and eventually the user's palm will hurt as it requires many attempts.
  • Another dispenser (U.S. Pat. No. 6,168,781 U.S. Pat. No. 3,162,370) requires a separate compressed tank, one or two chambers of fiber or powder found to be complicated expansive designs and may be restricted for travel by air.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention overcomes the disadvantages of prior inventions in many ways.
  • Thus, an object of the present invention is to enables the user to maximize use and dispenses fibers and powder constantly, with accuracy and control over the speed, amount, flow and direction of the fiber or powder applied on the scalp needing the application.
  • Powder dispensing is not as well understood as liquid dispensing. Flow-ability of a powder or fiber is believed to be influenced by multiple factors, including the size and shape of the particles, the tendency for particles to stick to each other, the density of particles, and the volume of air between particles. Particles may stick to each other due to electrostatic attraction as well as adhesive forces and moisture.
  • Therefore an object of the present application is to separate the particles of the fiber or powder with continuous flow of air supplied by electric pump and dispense them in a uniform flow outwards, this continuous flow of air prevent the fiber or powder from sinking back to the bottom and stick to each other, unlike manual applications where interval actions (such as manual pumping or shaking) are used and the particles flows out in un-uniform and uneven groups and clumps of fiber or powder.
  • Another object of the present invention is to enables the user to dispenses fibers or powder effortlessly, rather than apply it manually by shaking or repeatedly pressing on a rubber bulb or cap causing inaccurate uneven dispensing flow of fiber or powder.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide a fast hand-held fiber and powder electric dispenser.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide variety of removable nozzle sizes and pump motor speeds to enable the user to control the amount and flow of the fiber or powder dispensed.
  • Another object of the present invention is the ease of use: it requires one hand only, its small enough, light weight ergonomic design that enables the user to manipulate the device easily and comfortably within all angles and directions.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide a dispenser that fits over existing Hair building Fiber containers sold in the open marketplace.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide a dispenser and container that is suitable to dispense any fiber refills sold in the open marketplace in a form of refill bags bulk or containers.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide a hand-held battery operated dispenser suitable for applying hair concealing fibers for cosmetic purposes.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide a hand-held battery operated dispenser suitable for applying fibers or powders for art purposes.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide a much more efficient and improved dispenser that is simple inexpensive and easy to produce.
  • Another object of the present invention is a device that is environmentally friendly by limiting the need to buy plastic containers and encourage purchasing refills that cost less and use 90% less plastic.
