Title (EN) METHOD AND MEANS FOR CLEANING SURFACES
(FR) PROCEDE ET MOYENS DE NETTOYAGE DE SURFACES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a system and a method for cleaning more or less vertical surfaces (10), such as for example window or glass or thin-plated metal facades. The system comprises means (16,20,23) for moistening said more or less vertical surface (10) with a fluid such as for example water, with or without any detergent and/or rinsing means. The system also comprises means (14) for removal of fluid and/or dirt or the like from the more or less vertical surface (10). The means for removal of fluid and/or dirt comprises one or more units (19,24) imposing ultrasonic movement of said more or less vertical surface (10), comprising ultrasonic transducers (19), driven by an ultrasonic driver unit (24). The more or less vertical surface (10) is subjected to electromechanical vibra-tion while moistening the more or less vertical surface (10) with fluid, whereby dirt, particles are loosened from the surface (10) and become detached, suspended in the fluid and being transported away by said fluid, preferably by means of gravitation.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de nettoyer des surfaces (10) plus ou moins verticales, par exemple des fenêtres, des vitres ou des façades métalliques en placage mince. Ledit système comprend notamment des moyens (16, 20, 23) qui permettent d'humidifier lesdites surfaces (10) avec un fluide, par exemple de l'eau, avec ou sans détergent et/ou des moyens de rinçage. Ledit système comprend également des moyens (14) permettant de débarrasser lesdites surfaces (10) du fluide et/ou de la saleté ou analogue. Les moyens d'évacuation des fluides et/ou de la saleté comprennent une ou plusieurs unités (19, 24) imposant un mouvement ultrasonique desdites surfaces (10) plus ou moins verticales, lesdites unités comprenant des transducteurs ultrasonores (19) entraînés par une unité d'entraînement à ultrasons (24). Les surfaces (10) plus ou moins verticales sont soumises à une vibration électromécanique pendant leur humidification avec un fluide, la saleté et les particules se décollant alors des surfaces (10) et se détachant, en suspension dans le fluide, et se faisant évacuer par ledit fluide, de préférence par gravitation.
