Title: DEVICE FOR CLEANING AND DRYING A SPRAYING UNIT
Abstract:
A device for cleaning and drying a spraying unit, the device containing: a top end and a bottom end; the top and bottom end connected to each other by a housing; the housing having an opening proximate the top end, for receiving at least a portion of a spraying unit; a first liner within the housing; a second liner within the first liner; the first liner fitting within the housing forming a space between an outside wall of the first liner and an inside wall of the housing; the second liner fitting within the first liner forming a space between an outside wall of the second liner and an inside wall of the first liner; the opening further containing an open cap, proximate the top end; the device having at least one vacuum air supply influent port, at least one drying air supply influent port and at least one solvent supply influent port, at least one vacuum air supply channel in communication with the at least one vacuum supply influent port, for supplying vacuum air to at least one vacuum air effluent port; at least one drying air supply channel, in communication with the at least one drying air supply influent port, for supplying drying air to at least one drying air effluent port; at least one solvent supply channel in communication with the at least one solvent supply influent port, for supplying solvent to at least one solvent effluent port; the at least one vacuum air effluent port for providing air along the outside wall of the second liner, allowing the air provided by the at least one vacuum air effluent port to flow i n a direction away from the top end and towards the bottom end resulting in a vacuum within the device for drawing air through the top end of the device i n a direction away from the top, down along the inside wall of the second liner; the vacuum for drawing material and solvent towards and out a drain proximate the bottom end; the at least one drying air effluent port for providing air proximate the opening of the device, preferably allowing air to flow in a direction towards the bottom end; the at least one solvent effluent port for providing solvent proximate the top of the device, preferably allowing the solvent to flow in a direction towards the bottom end.
