  • Publication number: 20220362430
    Abstract: A volatile material dispenser includes a base and a stand assembly that is coupled with the base. The base includes a fan and a battery therein. The stand assembly includes a platform, a stand that extends from the platform, and a manifold that extends from the stand. The volatile material dispenser also includes a shroud and an air deflector. The shroud is positioned on the base and defines a chimney. The air deflector is positioned between the shroud and the manifold. The air deflector is configured to direct air out of the chimney.

  • Publication number: 20220314262
    Abstract: A volatile material dispenser includes a base that houses a printed circuit board. The volatile material dispenser also includes a stand assembly and a shroud. The stand assembly is coupled with the base. The stand assembly includes a platform, a stand that extends from the platform, and a manifold that extends from the stand. The manifold contains a circular piezoelectric element. The shroud is positioned on the base. The shroud defines a chimney that is centered along a longitudinal axis. The manifold includes an annular wall that extends from the manifold. A spring is disposed within the manifold and is coaxial with the annular wall. A top end of the spring is wrapped around the annular wall and a bottom end of the spring applies a force against the piezoelectric element.

  • Patent number: 11407000
    Abstract: A volatile material dispenser includes a base that houses a printed circuit board, a stand assembly that is coupled with the base, the stand assembly including a platform, a stand that extends from the platform, and a manifold that extends from the stand, the manifold containing a circular piezoelectric element. The dispenser further includes a shroud that is coupled with the stand assembly and defines a chimney, and a refill comprising a wick, the refill being removably coupled with the manifold. The manifold includes a cylindrical wall that extends upward from the manifold, a spring is disposed within the manifold and is coaxial with the cylindrical wall, and a top end of the spring is wrapped around the cylindrical wall and a bottom end of the spring applies a force against the piezoelectric element.
