Title
(EN) AUTOMATIC ROTARY MOPPING AND LIQUID COLLECTION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF AUTOMATIQUE ROTATIF DE LAVAGE ET DE RECUPERATION DE LIQUIDE
Abstract
(EN)
A device (30) for cleaning floors or other hard surfaces is disclosed. The device includes a roller (32), a shear member (34) and a pump (38). The cylindrical surface of the roller contacts a hard surface (66) as it is being cleaned. The roller has an absorbent outer surface (64) adapted to scrub the hard surface and remove a waste fluid from the hard surface. The shear member may take various forms, such as a fixed blade or a squeeze roller (370). The shear member selectively contacts the absorbent outer surface of the roller. The pump conveys away a fluid removed from the roller by the shear member. The device may be used much like a mop for cleaning floors, and is particularly suited for residential use by consumers.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un dispositif (30) destiné au nettoyage des sols et d'autres surfaces dures, lequel dispositif comprend un rouleau (32), un élément de cisaillement (34), ainsi qu'une pompe (38). La surface cylindrique du rouleau entre en contact avec la surface dure (66) lors du nettoyage de cette dernière. Le rouleau comporte un surface externe absorbante (64) conçue pour frotter la surface dure et récupérer les déchets fluides sur cette dernière. L'élément de cisaillement peut se présenter sous diverses formes, tel qu'une lame fixe ou un rouleau essoreur (370). Cet élément de cisaillement entre en contact de manière sélective avec la surface externe absorbante du rouleau, tandis que la pompe évacue le fluide qui a été récupéré du rouleau à l'aide de l'élément de cisaillement. Ce dispositif peut être utilisé sensiblement à la manière d'un balai laveur afin de nettoyer des sols, et convient tout particulièrement à un usage domestique.
