  • Publication number: 20210031159
    Abstract: The invention relates to an injection device (10) for atomizing a liquid into droplets using a gas, comprising a hollow tubular body (12) having a longitudinal direction (X). An inner wall (13) defines a first region, referred to as contact region (Z1), and a second region (Z2). The body includes: —at least two inlet ports (14; 16) for injecting liquid and an inlet port for injecting gas, all of said ports extending to the first region (Z1); —at least one outlet port (18), located downstream of the first and second regions, for discharging the atomized liquid. The body (12) has an inner cross-section that varies continuously or constantly over the entire length thereof. Between regions (Z1) and (Z2), the inner wall (13) includes at least one baffle (261) which is shaped such that in each plane running perpendicularly to the longitudinal direction of the body containing said baffle, the baffle reduces an inner cross-section of the body over the entire periphery of the inner wall (13).

  • Publication number: 20200360882
    Abstract: The invention relates to an injection device (10) for atomizing a liquid into droplets using a gas, comprising a hollow tubular body (12) having a longitudinal direction (X). An inner wall (13) defines a first region, referred to as contact region (Z1), and a second region (Z2). The body (12) has an inner cross-section that varies continuously or constantly over the entire length thereof except at the junction between the first and second regions, where the inner wall (13) of the body includes at least one cavity (201) which increases the size of the inner cross-section of the body, said at least one cavity extending over a predefined length in the longitudinal direction.

  • Patent number: 10835883
    Abstract: The invention relates to an injection device (10) configured to atomize a liquid into droplets using a gas, comprising a hollow tubular body (12) of longitudinal direction (X). An internal wall (13) defines a first zone referred to as a contact zone (Z1) and a second zone (Z2). The device (10) is notably provided with an atomizing element (18) mounted on an opening (19) of the body situated facing an opening (17) for injecting a liquid, comprising a tubular pipe (20) for conveying gas into the first zone (Z1), and a target (21) situated at the centre of the pipe. The body has an internal cross-section that varies continuously or is constant over its entire length (for example the shape of a simple cylinder) and of which the internal wall is provided, between the zones (Z1) (Z2), with at least one chicane (26i, 26?i) projecting from the internal wall towards the inside of the body.

  • Patent number: 10807057
    Abstract: The invention relates to an injection device (10) configured to atomize a liquid into droplets using a gas, comprising a hollow tubular body (12) of longitudinal direction (X). An internal wall (13) defines a first zone referred to as a contact zone (Z1) and a second zone (Z2). The body has: at least a first and a second inlet opening (14; 16) opening into the said first zone (Z1), so as to respectively inject a liquid and an atomizing gas, at least one outlet orifice (18) situated downstream of the first and second zones, for removing the atomized liquid from the body. The internal wall (13) of the body is provided, between the zones (Z1) (Z2), with at least one chicane (20i) configured so that, in each plane perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the body containing the said chicane, this chicane extends over just part of the periphery of the internal wall (13).

  • Patent number: 5547318
    Abstract: A process is presented for effecting sealed sheet pile constructions in which at least one of the sheet pile interlocks of a pair of sheet pile interlocks is filled with a sealing compound by moving a feeding chamber in an axial and concentric manner along the interlock. In addition, a device for carrying out the aforementioned process is presented comprising a central feeding chamber provided with a dorsal entrance bore, a longitudinal sliding guide block and a sealing compound distributing chuck. The section of the sliding guide block is identical to, but slightly narrower than that of the sheet pile interlock chamber.
