Title (EN) DEVICES AND METHODS FOR EMANATING LIQUIDS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS D'ÉMANATION DE LIQUIDES DEVICES AND METHODS FOR EMANATING LIQUIDS
Abstract:
(EN) A liquid dispensing system is described comprising a universal refill of liquid and an emanation device; wherein the refill comprises: a housing having an inner volume and an outer surface; at least one reservoir in the inner volume of the housing for holding the liquid; at least one aperture in the housing sealed by a sealing means; and at least one wick provided on or connected to the outer surface of the housing, wherein said wick(s) is not extend to the inner volume of the housing; and wherein the emanation device is selected from: an emanation device configured to spray the liquid; an emanation device configured to evaporate the liquid by electrically powered means; an emanation device configured to evaporate the liquid by passive, non-electrically powered means; an emanation device configured to emanate the liquid by two or more of spraying the liquid, evaporating the liquid by electrically powered means and/or evaporating the liquid by passive, non-electrically powered means; characterised in that each emanation device is provided with a chassis configured to receive and releasably retain the universal refill and the universal refill is operationally compatible with each emanation device.
(FR) Le système de diffusion de liquide ci-décrit comprend une recharge de liquide universelle et un dispositif d'émanation; la recharge comprenant : un boîtier ayant un volume intérieur et une surface extérieure; au moins un réservoir dans le volume intérieur du boîtier destiné à contenir le liquide; au moins une ouverture ménagée dans le boîtier, scellée par un moyen de joint d'étanchéité; et au moins une mèche située sur, ou reliée à la surface extérieure du boîtier, ladite ou lesdites mèches ne s'étendant pas jusqu'au volume intérieur du boîtier (2), le dispositif d'émanation étant choisi parmi : un dispositif d'émanation conçu pour pulvériser le liquide; un dispositif d'émanation conçu pour évaporer le liquide par un moyen électrique; un dispositif d'émanation conçu pour évaporer le liquide par un moyen passif, non électrique; un dispositif d'émanation conçu pour diffuser le liquide par deux moyens ou plus de pulvérisation du liquide, évaporation du liquide par un moyen électrique et/ou évaporation du liquide par un moyen passif, non électrique; ledit dispositif d'émanation étant caractérisé en ce que chaque dispositif d'émanation est équipé d'un châssis conçu pour recevoir et retenir de manière amovible la recharge universelle et en ce que ladite recharge universelle est fonctionnellement compatible avec le dispositif d'émanation.
