(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE D'ADOUCISSEMENT D'EAU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides a water softening device for application in a household appliance comprising a flow-through capacitor for the production of wash amplified water (WAW) from tap water, having less than 5° FH, being suitable for use in said appliance when the device is in operation; the configuration of the device is such that the capacitor can be regenerated, whereby no added substances are used. Said washing machine being suitable for use with low environmental impact detergent products.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif d'adoucissement d'eau à utiliser dans un appareil domestique. Ce dispositif comprend un condensateur de recyclage permettant d'obtenir de l'eau de lavage améliorée (WAW) produite à partir de l'eau du robinet, la température de cette eau de lavage étant inférieure à 5 °F, et ladite eau de lavage pouvant être utilisée dans l'appareil lorsque le dispositif est activé. Le dispositif de l'invention est conçu de façon que le condensateur puisse être recyclé et ne nécessite aucune utilisation de substances ajoutées. La machine à laver de l'invention est apte à être utilisée avec des produits détergents ayant un faible impact sur l'environnement.
