Two Or More Spray-material Holders Patents (Class 239/304)
  • Patent number: 11885431
    Abstract: This invention provides a valve-module that is operative with relatively low-pressure pilot-air despite its small size and has excellent durability with less performance-variations than among other similar products. The valve-module of the present invention includes a pilot-port and a biasing-means for biasing the piston-portion in the opposite direction, and controls the opening and closing of the valve by supplying and discharging pilot-air. The first-permanent magnet is held by the first magnet-holder of the valve-rod, and the second-permanent magnet is held by the second magnet-holder of the piston housing. A magnetic-attraction force acts between both permanent magnets and drives the piston in the first direction and increases with the mutual approach of both magnets.

  • Publication number: 20120280053
    Abstract: A method and device for producing a fragranced air stream for fragrancing rooms, objects or the like, wherein fragrance is applied to a strip-like fragrance carrier (4) which is moved in an evaporation duct (1) through which fresh air flows. The fragrance is applied onto the moving fragrance carrier (4) by means of specific spraying before the fragrance carrier (4) enters the evaporation duct (1), and the fragrance carrier (4) is discarded as waste after exiting the evaporation duct (1).

  • Publication number: 20120097751
    Abstract: The present invention provides a low environmental burden type coating method using carbon dioxide and a coating device therefor that carry out carbon dioxide coating in which carbon dioxide is substituted for all or a portion of a diluent solvent (thinner) used in organic solvent-based spray coating, the coating method being configured to prevent deposition of a polymer of a paint component that has entered as a result of backflow by preliminarily adding, to carbon dioxide, a true solvent component of the paint in at least an amount required for saturated solubility (20% to 50% per weight of carbon dioxide) to lower the dissolving power of carbon dioxide with respect to the true solvent component. According to the present invention, it is possible to provide a coating method and a device therefor capable of considerably reducing VOC generation, and a coating method and a device therefor capable of performing stable carbon dioxide coating of a one-liquid curing type or two-liquid curing type paint.

  • Publication number: 20110215113
    Abstract: A manual spray dispenser for dispensing a mixture of two compositions comprises a container having a first and second chamber and a single dispensing spray outlet. At least one of the chambers has a separator in the form of a pouch for physically separating the contents of the container from an interior surface of the chamber. One of the first and second chambers contains a first composition and the other contains a second composition. The dispenser further contains a dispensing system for simultaneously dispensing the first composition and the second composition, mixing the two compositions together, and dispensing a mixture of the two compositions from the container under pressure. An aerosol propellant is between the separator and the interior surface of the at least one of the first and second chambers for pressurizing the composition in the pouch for dispensing the contents thereof through the dispensing system under pressure.
