Title (EN) FLUID DISPENSING DEVICES_________
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE DISTRIBUTION DE FLUIDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides a fluid dispensing device comprising a liquid reservoir for housing a liquid, a wick, arranged in use, to draw liquid from the liquid reservoir, and means to effect substantial airflow in the region of the wick and away from the device. The invention further provides a method of dispensing a fluid, comprising the steps of: a) providing a device described above, wherein the liquid reservoir contains liquid; and (b) effecting substantial airflow in the region of the wick of the device, in order to increase the rate of evaporation of the liquid drawn through the wick and effect movement of the evaporated liquid away from the device.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif de distribution de fluide comprenant un réservoir de liquide contenant un liquide, une mèche agencée lors de l'utilisation de manière à acheminer le liquide du réservoir de liquide, et des moyens permettant d'effectuer un écoulement d'air important dans la zone de la mèche et à l'écart du dispositif. L'invention concerne un procédé de distribution d'un fluide consistant: a) à obtenir un dispositif tel que susmentionné, où le réservoir de liquide contient du liquide; et b) à effectuer un écoulement d'air important dans la zone de la mèche dudit dispositif, de façon à augmenter le taux d'évaporation du liquide acheminé à travers la mèche et à effectuer un mouvement du liquide évaporé à l'écart dudit dispositif.
