Title
(EN) A TILE SPONGE WASHING AND CONDITIONING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE NETTOYAGE ET DE CONDITIONNEMENT POUR EPONGE A CARRELAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A tile sponge washing and conditioning apparatus (10) is disclosed for washing in water (12) a sponge (14) used during a ceramic tile grouting operation. The apparatus (10) includes a frame (16) for disposition thereof within the water (12). The frame (16) includes a first wall (18) and a second wall (20) which is disposed spaced from the first wall (18). A first roller (22) has an axis of rotation (24) which extends through the walls (18, 20) and a second roller (26) has a rotational axis (28) which also extends through the walls (18, 20). The rollers (22, 26) cooperate with each other to define therebetween a pathway (P) for the passage therethrough of the sponge (14) to be washed and conditioned. The arrangement is such that when the rollers (22, 26) are counter rotated relative to each other, the sponge (14) is squeezed and driven through the passageway (P) so that the sponge (14) is washed and conditioned by the water (12) during passage of the sponge (14) through the passageway (P).
(FR)
Appareil de nettoyage et de conditionnement pour éponge à carrelage (10) utilisé pour le lavage à l’eau (12) d’une éponge (14) utilisée lors de la réalisation de joints pour des carreaux en céramiques. L’appareil (10) comprend un cadre (16) à placer dans l’eau (12). Ce cadre (16) se compose d’une première paroi (18) et d’une seconde paroi (20) espacée de la première (18). Un premier rouleau (22) possède un axe de rotation (24) s’étendant au travers des parois (18, 20) et un second rouleau (26) possède un axe de rotation (28) qui s’étend également au travers des parois (18, 20). Les rouleaux (22, 26) fonctionnent conjointement pour définir entre eux un chemin (P) pour le passage de l’éponge (14) à laver et à conditionner. Le dispositif est fait de telle manière que, lorsque les rouleaux (22, 26) tournent en sens inverse l’un par rapport à l’autre, l’éponge (14) est pressée et transportée dans le passage (P), où elle est lavée, puis conditionnée dans l’eau (12).
