  • Publication number: 20200392707
    Abstract: Faucet assembly with aerator cartridge (1?), which is screwed by means of an attachment thread (12) into the mouth (100), which has no sealing gasket, wherein water (W) seeping through the attachment thread (12) is at least partially reintroduced into a casing (10) of cartridge (1?) through suitably positioned aeration windows (13), being dragged by the air flow (A), which is sucked into said aeration windows (13) by the water flow within an internal flow path (2) of said cartridge (1).

  • Patent number: 10227756
    Abstract: Sprayhead (1) for a faucet, of the type which is separable and can be independently handled with respect to a faucet body, comprising: an inlet union (2), having a connecting mouth connectable to an extractable water supply hose; a dispensing body (4), defining at least a first dispensing outlet (40) and a second dispensing outlet (41); a selector body (3), arranged between the inlet union (2) and the dispensing body (4) and having a selection mechanism (30) actuatable from the outside so as to place the connecting mouth (20) in fluid communication either with the first dispensing outlet (40) or with the second dispensing outlet (41); and a containment casing (5, 6) composed of two portions made of different materials: a structural portion (5), within which the selector body (3) is housed; and a functional portion (6), which covers at least partially said structural portion (5).

  • Patent number: 9988796
    Abstract: Pull out sprayhead (1) for a faucet, comprising: an inlet fitting (10), provided with a coupling end (10d) connectable to a extractable water supply pipe; a supply mouth (11a) in fluid connection with said attachment end (10d); and a magnet (12) fixed at the inlet fitting (10) and prearranged to allow a releasable connection of said pull-out sprayhead (1) to a faucet neck (20), said magnet (12) being arranged in a housing chamber (13), defined between an outer wall of said inlet fitting (10) and a covering nut (14), within which an insulating sleeve (30) is placed, distinct from the covering nut (14) and interposed between the inlet fitting (10) and the magnet (12), so as to minimize the heat flow occurring between a supplied fluid and the magnet (12) through the inlet fitting (10).

  • Patent number: 9783966
    Abstract: A jet breaker/aerator cartridge, manually screwable about a screwing axis (x) within the mouth of a faucet. The cartridge has an external casing made of preferably plastic material and an engagement portion provided with a thread on its external surface for screwing the cartridge within the mouth, and a gripping portion which extends downstream with respect to the engagement portion. The gripping portion has at least one radial protrusion protruding with respect to a central cylindrical body of the gripping portion. The radial protrusion allows application of a manual screwing force with an arm advantageously far from the screwing axis (x).

  • Patent number: 9708800
    Abstract: Kitchen sink sprayer, comprising a body provided at one end with a coupling to a flexible hose extending from a faucet for adjusting the flow-rate and connected at its other end to a water outflow plug having an axis inclined with respect to the water flow direction. The body comprises a rod that has at one end a tip adapted to open selectively the access of the water to at least one duct for forming a central jet and to at least one duct for forming a peripheral jet, and has means for actuation by the user. The means for actuation of the rod comprise a tab connected directly to the rod and protruding from the body's enclosure to an extent that is sufficient for contact gripping by the user, in a position located in proximity to the end for entry of the water into the sprayer.

  • Patent number: 9644352
    Abstract: A kitchen sink sprayer, comprising a body enclosed in an outer enclosure for being gripped and provided with a coupling to a flexible water supply hose connected to a faucet for adjusting the flow-rate between a closed position and an open position, the body comprising a rod which has, at one end, a tip that is adapted to open selectively the access of the water to a duct for forming a central jet and to ducts for forming a peripheral jet, and is provided with means for actuation by the user, the means for actuating the rod having a tab which is connected directly to the rod in an intermediate position of the rod and protrudes from the enclosure of the sprayer, at its lateral surface, by an extent that is sufficient for contact grip by the user when it is necessary to actuate the rod in order to move it from one of its selection positions to the other and vice versa.
