Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DISPENSING FLUID COMPOSITIONS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE DISTRIBUTION DE COMPOSITIONS DE FLUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A miniaturized fluid dispensing system (20) for dispensing customized fluids. The dispenser (20) may include first and second reservoirs (32a, b) containing constituent fluids; a drive motor; at least two pump assemblies commonly driven by the drive motor and in communication with the first and second reservoirs; first and second valve assembly in communication with the first and second pump assemblies; and a control system for selectively controlling the valve assemblies to blend and discharge a composition from the constituent fluids. The system (20) may include a dispensing header (114) to house the valves and to define 'discharge' and 'recirculation' flow paths for each constituent fluid. The present invention also provides a method for dispensing a fluid regimen (e.g. a plurality of compositions) by periodically blending and discharging varying compositions over time.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système (20) de distribution de fluide miniaturisé pour distribuer des fluides personnalisés. Le distributeur (20) peut comprendre des premier et second réservoirs (32a, b) contenant des fluides constitutifs; un moteur d'entraînement, au moins deux ensembles de pompe entraînées de façon commune par le moteur d'entraînement et en communication avec les premier et second réservoirs; un premier et un second ensembles de soupape en communication avec les premier et second ensemble de soupape; et un système de commande pour commander de façon sélective les ensembles de soupape pour mélanger et évacuer une composition à partir des fluides constitutifs. Le système (20) peut comprendre une tête de distribution (114) pour recevoir les soupapes et pour définir les trajets d'écoulement de « décharge » et de « recyclage » pour chaque fluide constitutif. La présente invention porte également sur un procédé de distribution d'un régime de fluide (par exemple une pluralité de compositions) par mélange et décharge périodiques de diverses compositions au cours du temps.
