  • Publication number: 20160051809
    Abstract: A releasable plug connection for inserting a nozzle tube into a jack includes a hollow cylinder and a sleeve displaceably mounted on the cylinder. A nozzle tube, forming the hollow cylinder, is provided with radially spring-loaded lugs, the free ends of which are in contact with a locking surface. The locking surface is formed on a flange of the sleeve, which can slide relative to the hollow cylinder against the force of a spring. To release the connection, the sleeve is pushed back so that the lugs are pushed inwardly, and ends of the lugs slide from the locking surface. As soon as the lug ends have left the locking surface, the nozzle tube shoots from the jack under the action of the spring.

  • Publication number: 20100136501
    Abstract: The invention relates to a releasable plug connection, for inserting a nozzle tube (2) into a jack (1), consisting of a hollow cylinder (3) and a sleeve (6) displaceably mounted on said cylinder. To this end, the nozzle tube (2) is provided with radially spring-loaded lugs (20), the free ends of which are in contact with a locking surface (10a). The locking surface is formed on a flange (10) of the sleeve (6) which can slide relative to the hollow cylinder (3) against the force of a spring (24). For releasing the connection, the sleeve (6) is pushed back so that the lugs (20) slide along a truncated cone (14) on the hollow cylinder (3) and are pushed inwardly in the process. As a result, the ends of the lugs (20) slide from the locking surface (10a). As soon as the lug ends have left the locking surface (10a), the nozzle tube (2) shoots from the jack (1) under the action of the spring (24).

  • Patent number: 7500584
    Abstract: A mouth rinsing device comprising a pump housing and a reservoir. These two housings are arranged in series; i.e., the reservoir is attached to the base of the pump housing. A riser tube having a head on its end is situated on the pump housing and is fixed there by means of a lock so that only the head protrudes. When the reservoir is attached the lock is simultaneously released, so that the riser tube is able to slide into the reservoir and the intake opening is situated just above the base. After the reservoir is removed, the riser tube may be pushed in again manually. The riser tube is subsequently fixed in the retracted position by locking the head to the base of the pump housing.

  • Publication number: 20070080240
    Abstract: In order to enable treatment agents such as mouth water or abrasive substances to be added to the spray water in an oral douche, the hand piece of the oral douche is provided with a mixing reservoir that includes a mixing chamber on the lower end of the hand piece. The mixing chamber is arranged in the main or subsidiary flow of the spray water supply line. A water-soluble tablet containing the treating agents is arranged therein. Mixing of the treating agents is determined by the shape and size of the supply and discharge line to the mixing chamber.

  • Patent number: 6973694
    Abstract: An electric toothbrush with a handle and a brush member having a brush head, individual cylindrical bristle holders with tufts of bristles held rotatably in the brush head. They are set into an oscillatory rotating movement by means of a connecting rod executing a reciprocating sliding movement and simultaneously an oscillatory movement about its longitudinal axis, with transverse grooves, disposed therein. In addition, a bristle holder plate in the brush head is held so as to oscillate about a shaft running in the longitudinal direction of the toothbrush. Thus, during the oscillatory movement of the bristle holders the bristle holder plate swivels back and forth in synchronism with the connecting rod.

  • Patent number: 6829801
    Abstract: An electric toothbrush having a cam disc mounted at the free end of a toothbrush shaft and which engages between two follower pins of a bristle carrier disc. The form of the cam disc is approximately elliptical. This causes it to impart a reciprocating motion to the bristle carrier disc when the toothbrush shaft is driven in rotation.

  • Patent number: 6419486
    Abstract: A fluid reservoir for an oral hygiene appliance has a floor valve in its floor which opens when the reservoir is placed on the oral hygiene appliance. The fluid reservoir is subdivided into two separate fluid chambers, each with a fluid outlet leading to the floor valve. The fluid outlets can be controlled by a manually operable selector valve in such a way that one fluid outlet is opened and the other is closed alternately.

  • Patent number: 4763301
    Abstract: An integrated circuit for a dynamic semiconductor random access memory, constructed of complementary transistors, has memory cells connected to bit lines by way of individual selection transistors of a first channel type, the operation of which is controlled by word lines. The voltage on the word lines is controlled by a first switching transistor of a second channel type, controlled by the output of a decoder. The first switching transistor is connected between the word line and a selection voltage which alternates between two voltage values of different operational signs, and the gate of the first switching transistor is connected through a capacitor to the selection voltage and through a second switching transistor having its gate at reference potential, to the output of the decoder.

  • Patent number: 4760035
    Abstract: An integrated circuit in complementary circuit technology comprising two field effect transistors (T1, T2) of different channel types with the first one (T2) mounted in a doped semiconductor body (1) having a first conductivity type and the other FET (T1) mounted in a semiconductor zone 2 of a second conductivity type which is arranged in said body. The object is to provide a protection against thermal overloads which can appear due to "latch up" influences when overvoltages at the one connecting region of the field effect transistor (T1) mounted in the semiconductor zone occur.
