||PCT/DE2016/000130||STACHOWSKE, Martin||STACHOWSKE, Martin|
A device for introducing a gas, a gas mixture or a liquid into a medium surrounding the device. The device comprises a pressure chamber with supply lines for the working fluid and a cover element which can be designed as a plate, a shaped body or a triangular shaped element, and has outlet elements for the working fluid, the diameter of which is ≤ 100 μm and the outlet elements of the triangular shaped body have a changeable cross section area which is linked with the advantage that without additional means, such as a rubber membrane, the gas, gas mixture or the liquid in the pressure chamber can be kept separate from the surrounding medium during shutdown of the device, and during operation of the device it is possible to introduce the gas, gas mixture or the liquid from the pressure chamber via the outlet elements into the medium. This permits, in a relatively simple manner and so as to save energy, the exact-quantity introduction of a gas or the mixture and also a liquid into a medium at precisely any point in time, because it is known what volume flow in what time unit flows through an outlet element by itself and through the totality of all the outlet elements, and with what diameter the gas bubble forms over the individual outlet element, and with what rising speed each individual gas bubble resides for what time in a fluid. Due to the very small size of the exiting gas bubbles, or due to the small size of the discharged droplets, the surface of the gas bubbles or the surface of the droplets is optimized with respect to the working fluid expelled from the device, and the coalescing of these is negligibly restricted.
