Title
(EN) HAIR DRYER APPARATUS
(FR) SECHE-CHEVEUX
Abstract
(EN)
A drying apparatus for drying hair in which an axial flow of heated air is diverged from an axis (47) toward a circular array of flow nozzles (36) at a selected flow velocity. The nozzles (36) direct the heated air along a conical flow pattern such that the air is focused to a common point (46). When the circular array (36) is positioned such that the scalp of a user (12) is located between the circular array (36) and the common point (46), hair will be lifted to provide enhanced drying conditions. The circular array (36) is located on a nozzle structure (26) which may be integral with the housing of a hand-held hair dryer, or configured as a separable attachment.
(FR)
Sèche-cheveux dans lequel un flux axial d'air chauffé est écarté d'un axe (47) vers un ensemble circulaire de buses (36) d'écoulement à une vitesse d'écoulement choisie. Les buses (36) dirigent l'air chauffé selon un modèle de flux conique si bien que l'air est concentré sur un point commun (46). Lorsque l'ensemble circulaire (36) est placé de manière que le cuir chevelu d'un utilisateur (12) soit placé entre l'ensemble circulaire (36) et le point commun (46), de l'air est poussé vers le haut, ce qui fournit de meilleures conditions de séchage. L'ensemble circulaire (36) est placé sur une structure (26) qui peut être constituée d'un seul tenant avec le boîtier du sèche-cheveux, ou configurée en tant qu'accessoire amovible.
