  • Patent number: 8371765
    Abstract: An apparatus is disclosed for the deep cleaning of surfaces, which comprises a support for at least two reservoirs arranged side-by-side and provided with deformable walls having uniformly perforated faces essentially facing the direction of the surface to be cleaned. At least one reservoir can contain a granular material for cleaning the surface and at least one reservoir can contain a fluid substance for the flowing of the granular material onto the surface. By means of the pressure exerted by a user on a support of the reservoirs in the direction of the surface to be cleaned, the granular material and the fluid substance flow from the corresponding reservoirs and are mixed together on the surface to be cleaned. A tangential movement of the reservoirs onto the surface conveys a compound of granular material and fluid substance onto the surface with a cleaning effect.

    Abstract: A device and method for mixing and applying hair coloring chemicals to a user's hair. The device comprises a brush applicator, a first compartment capable of holding the brush applicator in a locked position, a second compartment containing a first hair coloring chemical, a third compartment containing a second hair coloring chemical, and a membrane. The membrane is located between the second compartment and the third compartment such that the first hair coloring chemical is separated from the second hair coloring chemical by the membrane when the brush applicator is in the locked position. When the brush applicator is released from the locked position, the brush applicator is movable toward the membrane to puncture the membrane. Upon puncture, the membrane retracts to a peripheral edge of the membrane to cause the first hair coloring chemical and the second hair coloring chemical to be mixed together.

  • Patent number: 4767025
    Abstract: In a hand tool for the mixing and metered dispensing of a two-component mass, a container holding a solid component mass is mounted in a handgun-like shaped support member. A mixing chamber is aligned with and mounted on one end of the container for mixing the components of the mass. A motor in the support member drives a drive shaft extending axially through the container. A mixing worm is connected to the drive shaft and is located within the mixing chamber. A metering pump is located within the support member for delivering a liquid component of the mass from a tank. The metering pump is a hose pump powered by the drive shaft. A conveying helix is positioned on the drive shaft in the container. Accordingly, since the drive shaft powers the metering pump and the conveying helix, a fixed mixture ratio of the solid and liquid components is delivered into the mixing chamber independently of the quantity dispensed. The mixed components flow out of the mixing chamber through a dispensing nozzle.
