  • Publication number: 20130025077
    Abstract: A device for cleaning a surface (11) comprises at least one rotatable brush (3,4) which is provided with flexible brush elements (18) for contacting the surface (11) and picking up dirt particles (10) and liquid which are present on the surface (11) during a dirt pick-up period of each revolution of the brush (3, 4), and means for driving the brush (3, 4). A linear mass density of the flexible brush elements (18) is chosen such as to be lower than 50 g per 10 km, at least at tip portions, and an acceleration at tips of the brush elements (18) is set such as to be at least 3,000 m/sec2, at least at some time during another period of each revolution of the brush (3, 4) than the dirt pick-up period, namely a period in which the brush elements (18) are free from contact to the surface (11).

  • Publication number: 20120317748
    Abstract: A vacuum cleaner (1) comprises an inlet (13), an outlet, a fan (14) for creating a flow of air through the vacuum cleaner (1) by drawing air to be cleaned through the inlet (13) into the vacuum cleaner (1) and by exhausting air through the outlet outwardly of the vacuum cleaner (1) and a separator (15, 41). The separator (15, 41) is rotatably arranged around an rotation axis (21), for creating, during use, a column of rotating air to separate at least a portion of the airborne particles (10) from the flow of air. The separator (15, 41) includes a number of vanes (25, 44) for the creation of the column of rotating air, wherein each vane (25, 44) is provided with a leading face (26) and a trailing face (27). The leading faces (26) of the vanes (25, 44) are inclined with respect to the rotation axis (21) for conveying the airborne particles (10) at least in an axial direction.

  • Publication number: 20120284950
    Abstract: The invention relates to a cleaning device (1) for removing particles from a surface (11). Thereto the device sprays droplets (200) of a fluid (201) into a space (213). The droplets (200) are expelled from a rotatable brush (3) as a mist of droplets. Air carrying dirt particles (202) is exposed to the mist, whereby dirt particles coalesce with droplets in the mist in the space (213). The coalesced particles (22) are conveyed to a cleansing unit (14) to be separated from the air. Finally, clean air exits from the device (1).

  • Publication number: 20120266408
    Abstract: A vacuum cleaner (1, 21, 31) comprises an air inlet opening (3), an air outlet opening (6) and a rotatable separator (9) for separating air and airborne particles. The separator (9) comprises at least one air entrance opening (109) located between the air inlet opening (3) and the air outlet opening (6). The vacuum cleaner (1, 21, 31) is provided with air-guide means (15, 22, 37) for guiding at least part of the air towards the separator (9). In use, the air-guide means (15, 22, 37) provides an at least partially closed boundary in axial direction for a column of rotating air (17) around the separator (9). The minimum distance (Rag) of an edge (115, 122) of the air-guide means (15, 22, 37) to the rotating axis (11) of the separator (9) is larger than a distance (Rs) of the air entrance opening (109) of the separator (9) to the rotating axis (11) of the separator (9).

  • Publication number: 20120233807
    Abstract: A vacuum cleaner (1, 21, 41, 51) for dry dust comprises at least a dust chamber (3, 23, 43, 53) and a fan unit(13, 63), which dust chamber (3, 23, 43, 53) is provided with an air inlet opening (7, 27, 57) and an air outlet opening (8, 28) communicating with the fan unit (13, 63). The dust chamber (3, 23, 43, 53) comprises a movable body (9, 29, 59) for restricting air flow through the dust chamber (3, 23, 43, 53). In use the movable body (9, 29, 59) is located on dry dust collected in the dust chamber (3, 23, 43, 53) due to kinematic sorting between the movable body (9, 29, 59) and the dry dust.

  • Publication number: 20120018398
    Abstract: A baby feeding bottle (1) is provided that comprises a wall member (4) having an inner surface (6), a bottom part (2) and an upper part (7). Further a temperature indicator (11) is provided. The inner surface (6) of the wall member (4) defines an internal space (10). The bottle (1) further comprises a thermally conductive element (13) that is thermally connected to the temperature indicator (11) and extends from the bottom part (2) to the upper part (7) of the wall member (4) along at least part of the inner surface (6) thereof. The thermally conductive element (13) has a surface area that is significantly smaller than the surface area of the inner surface (6) of the wall member (4).

  • Publication number: 20120004604
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an insert adapted to fit on a breast-receiving funnel of a breast pump. The insert comprises a circumferentially extending resiliently deformable wall which defines a teat receiving space and against which a user's teat is locatable, the insert being configured to define a pressure chamber between the resiliently deformable wall and a breast receiving funnel when the insert is fitted on a breast receiving funnel, wherein said wall is configured to deform towards a user's teat located in the teat receiving space in a predetermined manner when a pressure difference is applied between the teat receiving space and the pressure chamber such that a peristaltic action is applied to a user's teat, to aid the expression of milk therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20110100944
    Abstract: The peristaltic teat is a cleanable teat which rewards the baby for making the same natural peristaltic tongue movement it makes at the mother's breast. The reward is that the baby gets (more) milk when making the correct movement. The consequence is that the baby will use the same drinking mechanism as at the breast. Hence bottle feeding will become closer to breast feeding which makes the combination of bottle feeding and breast feeding easier.
