Title (EN) ADJUSTABLE NOZZLE ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE A AJUTAGE REGLABLE
Abstract:
(EN) The adjustable nozzle assembly (10) for a trigger sprayer (20) comprises an externally threaded nose bushing (14) and a nozzle cap (12) threadable upon the bushing (14). The nozzle cap (12) has a discharge orifice (49) located in its front face (26) and a flange skirt (32) extending from a front wall (28) thereof. The flange skirt (32) is threaded (34) inside the rear portion thereof and an internally stepped surface (36) is located forwardly of the threads to provide two reduced diameter annular surfaces (40, 44). The nozzle cap (12) is selectively threadably positionable on the bushing (14) between three positions such that the positioning of the inner surface (30) of the front wall (28) and the annular surfaces (40, 44) of the flange skirt (32) selectively cooperate with a front face (52) and annular periphery (60) of a nose bushing face disc (50) having two angular grooves (61, 62) in the annular periphery (60) thereof thereby selectively to provide a stop mode, a spray mode, and a stream mode position.
(FR) L'ensemble à ajutage réglable (10) pour un atomiseur à gâchette (20) comprend un manchon de nez vissé extérieurement (14) et un capuchon d'ajutage (12) pouvant être vissé sur le manchon (14). Le capuchon (12) de l'ajutage possède un orifice de décharge (49) situé dans sa face frontale (26) et une jupe de rebord (32) s'étendant depuis sa paroi frontale (28). La jupe (32) est vissée (34) à l'intérieur de sa partie arrière et une surface à gradin interne (36) est prévue en avant des filets pour former deux surfaces annulaires adjacentes à diamètre réduit (40, 44). Le capuchon d'ajutage (12) peut être vissé sélectivement en position sur le manchon (14) entre trois positions de sorte que le positionnement de la surface interne (30) de la paroi frontale (28) et les surfaces annulaires (40, 44) de la jupe (32) coopèrent sélectivement avec une face frontale (52) et une périphérie annulaire (60) du disque (50) du manchon de nez, lequel disque possède deux rainures angulaires (61, 62) dans sa périphérie annulaire (50) de manière à obtenir sélectivement une position en mode arrêt, une position en mode atomisation et une position en mode jet.
