Title (EN) A STEAM IRON WITH PRESSURIZED WATER RESERVOIR
(FR) FER À VAPEUR DOTÉ D'UN RÉSERVOIR D'EAU PRESSURISÉE
Abstract:
(EN) The present application relates to a steam iron (1) for treating garments, comprising a heel (2) to rest the steam iron (1) on a supporting surface (S) when the steam iron (1) is not treating garments, a pressurisation unit (3) having a chamber (4) comprising a water inlet (5) for receiving water and a water outlet (6). The pressurisation unit (3) is adapted so that, in a rest position (PI) where the heel (2) is placed on the supporting surface (S), it generates an air vacuum in the chamber (4) to draw water into the chamber (4) via the water inlet (5) and, in a lifted position (P2) where the heel (2) is not placed on the supporting surface (S), pressurises the water drawn in the chamber (4). The steam iron also comprises a steam engine (7) for generating steam from water towards the garments and a water output channel (8) for carrying water under pressure from the water outlet (6) to the steam engine (7). This invention allows easily pressurizing the water in the chamber for in turn increasing the steam generation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un fer à vapeur (1) destiné au traitement de vêtements, comprenant un talon (2) pour l'appui du fer à vapeur (1) sur une surface de support (S) lorsque le fer à vapeur (1) ne traite pas de vêtements, une unité de pressurisation (3) ayant une chambre (4) comprenant une entrée d'eau (5) destinée à recevoir de l'eau et une sortie d'eau (6). L'unité de pressurisation (3) est conçue de sorte que, en position de repos (PI) dans laquelle le talon (2) est placé sur la surface de support (S), elle génère un vide d'air dans la chambre (4) pour aspirer de l'eau dans la chambre (4) via l'entrée d'eau (5) et, en position levée (P2) dans laquelle le talon (2) n'est pas placé sur la surface de support (S), elle mette sous pression l'eau aspirée dans la chambre (4). Le fer à vapeur comprend également un moteur à vapeur (7) permettant de générer de la vapeur à partir d'eau vers les vêtements et un canal de sortie d'eau (8) permettant de transporter l'eau sous pression de la sortie d'eau (6) au moteur à vapeur (7). La présente invention permet de mettre facilement sous pression l'eau dans la chambre, ce qui permet d'augmenter la production de vapeur.
