Title (EN) AUTOMATIC FLUID FLOW CONTROL DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE REGLAGE DE DEBIT AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) One embodiment of the invention provides a fluid control device for a fluid supply, the device comprising: a housing (31) defining a fluid supply channel (34) with a fluid inlet (35) for coupling to a fluid supply and a fluid outlet (36) for coupling to an appliance, the housing additionally defining a chamber (44) with an inlet (40) for coupling to an overflow and an outlet (41 ) for coupling to a drain; a valve (55) located in said fluid supply channel (34) and moveable from a first open position to a second closed position where fluid flow through the channel (34) is substantially restricted; an actuator (52) provided in said chamber (44) and moveable from a first position to a second position, wherein the valve (55) and actuator (44) are magnetically coupled to one another such that movement of the actuator (44) from said first position to said second position causes the valve (55) to move from said open position to said closed position.
(FR) L'invention concerne, dans un mode de réalisation, un dispositif de réglage du débit d'une alimentation de fluide, ledit dispositif comprenant un logement (31) définissant un canal (34) d'alimentation de fluide avec une entrée (35) de fluide destinée à être couplée à une alimentation de fluide et une sortie (36) de fluide destinée à être couplée à un appareil, le logement définissant, de plus, une chambre (44) avec une entrée (40) destinée à être couplée à un dispositif d'évacuation et une sortie (41) destinée à être couplée à un drain; une valve (55) positionnée dans ledit canal (34) et amovible entre une première position ouverte et une seconde position fermée dans laquelle l'écoulement dans le canal (34) est sensiblement limité; et un dispositif (52) de commande positionné dans ladite chambre (44) et amovible entre une première position et une seconde position, la valve (55) et le dispositif (44) de commande étant magnétiquement couplés l'un à l'autre de manière que le mouvement du dispositif (52) de commande de ladite première position vers ladite seconde position entraîne le mouvement de la valve (55) de la position ouverte vers la position fermée.
