Title
(EN) HANDHELD PORTABLE DEVICES FOR TOUCHLESS PARTICULATE MATTER REMOVAL
(FR) DISPOSITIFS PORTATIFS POUR L'ÉLIMINATION SANS Y TOUCHER DE MATIÈRES PARTICULAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
Handheld portable devices 7 for dislodging and capturing particulate matter that has accumulated on various surfaces or structures are provided. The devices 7 create opposing airflows that can intimately interface with each other during use. A vacuum airflow 110 is drawn into the device 7, defining a vacuum affected zone upon the surface being cleaned. A high pressure airflow 210 is emitted that penetrates through or passes adjacent to the opposing vacuum airflow 110 and contacts the surface being cleaned, dislodging particulate matter therefrom. The high pressure airflow 210 can be emitted from multiple nozzles 205 as a series of airflow bursts that discretely contact the surface being cleaned. The configuration of each nozzle 205, as well as the overall arrangement and positions of all the nozzles 205 together, are selected to impart the desired particulate matter dislodging characteristics to the device.
(FR)
L'invention a pour objet des dispositifs portatifs 7 pour déloger et capturer des matières particulaires qui se sont accumulées sur différentes surfaces ou structures. Ces dispositifs 7 produisent des flux d'air opposés capables d'être en interaction étroite pendant l'utilisation. Un flux d'air vide 110 est attiré dans le dispositif 7 et définit ainsi une zone de vide affectée sur la surface en cours de nettoyage. Un flux d'air haute pression 210 est émis et pénètre à travers le flux d'air vide 110 opposé, ou passe de manière adjacente à celui-ci, puis entre en contact avec la surface en cours de nettoyage, ce qui permet de déloger les matières particulaires de cette surface. Le flux d'air haute pression 210 peut être émis à partir de plusieurs injecteurs 205, une série de souffles d'air entrant discrètement en contact avec la surface en cours de nettoyage. La configuration de chaque injecteur 205, ainsi que la disposition générale et le positionnement de l'ensemble des injecteurs 205, sont choisis pour conférer au dispositif les caractéristiques souhaitées pour déloger les matières particulaires.
