Inventor polaco busca socios con el fin de fabricar un dispositivo de doble función para eliminación de maleza y limpieza al vapor


Oferta Tecnológica
Un inventor polaco ha desarrollado y obtenido la patente de un dispositivo con doble función para eliminación de maleza y limpieza de suelos al vapor. Los métodos tradicionales son peligrosos porque el contacto con productos químicos puede irritar la piel y los ojos. Además estos métodos también pueden ser peligrosos para las plantas ornamentales que crecen alrededor. Este nuevo dispositivo también evita el uso de fregonas para limpiar el suelo, que muchas veces son incómodas para el operario. El inventor busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de fabricación y cooperación técnica para continuar con el desarrollo.


Polish inventor is looking for partners to develop two-function device for removing weeds and steam cleaning
A Polish inventor has patented a two-function device for removing weeds and washing floors. Traditional methods involve a danger of contact with chemicals which can be irritating to skin and eyes. Moreover this method can also be dangerous for decorative plants growing nearby. When it comes to washing the floors, usually it requires using a mop which is inconvenient for the operator. The inventor is looking for manufacturing agreements and joint further development through technical cooperation.
A Polish inventor has patented 2 in 1 device designed for steaming floors and getting rid of crack weeds in gardens. Weedkillers available on the market so far, are either dangerously toxic or ineffective. The device eliminates contact with pesticides while easily killing unwanted plants and leaving the desired crop unharmed. As for the steaming function, the device is self-propelled, and due to a larger water container it is more efficient than regular stem mops.

The inventor is looking for manufacturing agreements with production companies wiling to start production of the invention and interested in future joint developement of this project.

The prototype is made of aluminum, perspex and metal but the commercialized product will be mainly plastic. Two wheels in the back are smaller for better maneuverability, arranged to operate rear-wheel steering system. A connected to the engine, drive shaft transmits power to the front bigger wheels. The motor is operated by a lever that runs mechanical belt and a rack and pinion. On a panel next to the steering wheel, are two switches to start the engine and turn the coil heater on. It allows to use the device without running the engine. User can also adjust the pump pressure, by increasing or decreasing its efficiency. Inside of 2,5 L container is a pipe connected to the three-way gate valve. Outlet ports are wired to the coil heater with a brush, and nozzle set attached to the chassis. The front is equipped with a battering ram to break the biggest unwanted plants. To avoid getting the floor dirty while using the device as a steamer, product comes with wheel caps.

Working with the device begins with placing the container with water or herbicides (depending on the wanted function). After plugging in, the pump starts sucking the water or herbicide from the container into the three-way gate valve controlled by a lever. The liquid is either pumped into the nozzle set or into the coil heater to boil the water. Produced steam is used through the brush. Steering wheel is located on the height-adjustable stick.
Advantages and Innovations:
The product is a user-friendly device which offers peace of mind and reduces the risk of skin and eyes irritation. As the first on the market, this unit offers two different functions in one item. The device consists of simple components, which could be cost-effectively manufactured and sold at a low price point.
Stage of Development:
Available for demonstration
Granted patent or patent application essential
