Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR VAPOURISING A LIQUID FOR SUPPLY TO AN ENVIRONMENT
(FR) APPAREIL POUR VAPORISER UN LIQUIDE À FOURNIR À UN ENVIRONNEMENT
Abstract
(EN) The invention is a vapourising device (10) for vapourising a volatile liquid for supply to an environment. The device has a housing 100 having an inlet (109) for receiving inlet air which is warmed by inlet heater (111) before being supplied to cartridge assembly (200). Cartridge assembly (200) has a reservoir (204) for containing the liquid to be vapourised and at least one wick (206), one end of which is located in the reservoir to receive and transport the liquid to the other, exposed end of the wick where the liquid evaporates and mixes with the supplied stream of heated inlet air. The wick may be heated by a wick heater (211). The device also includes an outlet duct section (217) between the wick (206) and the outlet (221) which is conical in shape and is configured to accelerate the flow of the mixture of inlet air and vapourised liquid away from the wick towards the outlet (221). The invention provides increased control of the vapourisation process and helps to reduce condensation of the volatile liquid back onto the apparatus or onto surrounding surfaces.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de vaporisation (10) pour vaporiser un liquide volatil à fournir à un environnement. Le dispositif comprend un boîtier 100 ayant une entrée (109) pour recevoir de l'air d'entrée qui est chauffé par un dispositif de chauffage d'entrée (111) avant d'être fourni à un ensemble cartouche (200). L'ensemble cartouche (200) comporte un réservoir (204) destiné à contenir le liquide à vaporiser et au moins une mèche (206), dont une extrémité est située dans le réservoir pour recevoir et transporter le liquide vers l'autre extrémité exposée de la mèche où le liquide s'évapore et se mélange avec le courant fourni d'air d'entrée chauffé. La mèche peut être chauffée par un dispositif de chauffage de mèche (211). Le dispositif comprend également une section de conduit de sortie (217) entre la mèche (206) et la sortie (221) qui est de forme conique et est configurée pour accélérer l'écoulement du mélange d'air d'entrée et de liquide vaporisé à l'opposé de la mèche vers la sortie (221). L'invention permet un contrôle accru du processus de vaporisation et aide à réduire la condensation du liquide volatil sur l'appareil ou sur des surfaces environnantes.
