This invention provides an air freshener dispenser device comprising a disposable air freshener cartridge which has an affixed electrical-resistance heating element on its higher segment surface, and an electrical plug housing.
The cartridge has an elongated thermoplastic hollow physique configuration with a sealed internal reservoir chamber of liquid air freshener medium, and the higher segment of the cartridge physique is formed to a flat shallow extension of the cartridge chamber. A thin wick matrix extends internally from the cartridge chamber base up to the leading of the chamber shallow extension. The cartridge has an integrally structured indicates adapted for elimination of a leading portion of the cartridge chamber shallow extension to expose an higher segment of wick matrix to the atmosphere. The electrical plug housing is detachably secured and positioned proximate to the cartridge heating element. Activation of the heating element promotes air freshener dispersion into the atmosphere from the exposed wick.
The require for successfully combating airborne malodors in houses and enclosed public structures, by odor masking or destruction, is nicely established. Numerous kinds of vapor-dispensing gadgets have been employed for this objective. The most common of this kind of gadgets is the aerosol container which propels minute droplets of an air freshener composition into the air. An additional common type of dispensing device is a dish that contains or supporting a physique of gelatinous matter which when it dries and shrinks releases a vaporized air-dealing with composition into the atmosphere. Other goods this kind of as deodorant blocks are also used for dispensing air-dealing with vapors into the atmosphere by evaporation. An additional team of vapor-dispensing gadgets makes use of a carrier materials this kind of as paperboard impregnated or coated with a vaporizable composition.
A number of recent developments include a liquid air-dealing with composition in an enclosure, all or component of which is shaped of a polymeric movie via which the air-dealing with composition can migrate to be released as a vapor at an outer surface. Use of this type of permeable polymeric membrane controls the dispensing of air-dealing with vapors and tends to eliminate great variations in the rate of dispensing over the life of the product.
Wicking gadgets are nicely recognized for dispensing unstable liquids into the atmosphere, this kind of as fragrance, deodorant, disinfectant or insecticide active agent.
Some air freshener dispensers are expensive to manufacture. Other air freshener dispensers are affordable to create, but tend to have inferior building and functionality.
There remains a require for a nicely-constructed air freshener dispenser device which can be mass-created economically and which can deliver a vapor medium at a managed uniform rate over an extended time period of time.
Accordingly, it is an item of this invention to provide an enhanced air freshener dispenser device for delivering an odorant and/or deodorant vapor in an enclosed environment.
It is a further item of this invention to provide an air freshener cartridge for utility in a warmth-activated air freshener dispenser device, wherein the cartridge has an internal air freshener reservoir in contact with a wicking indicates.
A substantial benefit derives from the incorporation of heating element in the structure of disposable cartridge. A various heating element can be developed for various air freshener medium formulations. The mixture of heating element 36 and specific air freshener medium can be customized for ideal performance.
As a further benefit, a present invention air freshener dispenser device can be created in high volume from relatively affordable plastic materials. Following utilization, the device qualifies for disposal as a non-hazardous strong squander.
