In the following description reference position in the drawings are used for the same elements even in different drawings. The objects described in the following description, like parts and elements shown in the figures are merely illustrative, and should not be construed as limiting. Well-known functions and devices used in vacuum cleaners, omitted for brevity, since such unnecessary details would impede the understanding of new aspects of the invention disclosed and claimed here.

As shown in figure 1, the vacuum cleaner includes a housing 10 of a vacuum cleaner, a flexible hose 20, the handle and the 30 management extension pipe 40, the suction brush 50 and the supporting device 100 for an extension pipe, which allows the extension pipe 40 cleaner "on their own" standing essentially vertically on the floor.

As shown in Fig.1-3, the supporting device 100 for extension pipe Cabinet contains the element 110 (Fig 3)attached or connected to the extension pipe 40, and the supporting element 120, which is pivotally attached to vessel element 110.

As shown in figure 2, Cabinet element 110 includes a left housing 111 and the right housing 112 that communicate with each other for enclosing or wrapping extension pipe 40, which are not shown in figure 2. The left and right housings 111 and 112 are connected to each other by a set of bolts or screws by which the housings 111 and 112 tightly clamp the extension pipe 40. As shown in figure 2, the housings 111 and 112 attached to this form, so that they formed a hole which is directed to the floor, and in which the supporting element 120 can be stored when it is in its folded up in his "second" position. The possibility of folding the supporting element 120 is provided by a hinge formed in the left and right housings 111 and 112. The hinge includes recesses 113 and 114 of the hinges, which are made of such size and are so, so what to take first and second hinge protrusions A and B supporting element 120.

Accordingly, the supporting element 120 includes the first hinge protrusion A that communicates with the first recess 114 of the hinge. The second hinge protrusion B communicates with the second recess 113 of the hinge. Accordingly, the supporting element 120 can be rotated between a first position in which the extension pipe 40 is supported in a standing position on the floor, and a second position in which the supporting element 120 is difficult to contact with extension pipe 40.

The first hinge protrusion A has a first elastic spring element, which in the preferred embodiment, is a first spring 116A torsion. One end 117A of the first spring 116A torsion relies on the support 123 for the elastic spring element formed on the supporting element 120. The second end 117V first spring 116A torsion is based on the internal wall (not shown) of the body element 110. The first spring element 116A torsion installed in the first recess 114 of the hinge. The second hinge protrusion W has a second spring element W torsion, which is mounted in the second recess 113 of the hinge. The first and second spring elements 116A and W swirl together with the first and second hinge protrusions A and B create the possibility of rotation of the supporting element 120 from the second or "upper" put the I in the first or "bottom" position. Depending on how you set torsion springs, the first and second elastic spring elements 116A and V can serve for pressing the supporting element 120 down in its first position, in which the supporting element 120 serves to provide support for extension tubes, or elastic spring elements 116A and V can be used for lifting or raising of the supporting element 120 up to its second position in which the supporting element 120 is fixed and held so that it does not interfere with the user, by means of the fixing device 200. In other words, depending on the installation of the elastic spring elements 116A and B they can serve for pressing the supporting element 120 in the direction indicated by the arrow in figure 4, when the locking device 200 raspikirovki.

The locking device 200 includes a button 210 to actuate the supporting element, the hook element 220, the second elastic spring element 225 and the locking gripper 231. The locking device 200 is installed on the outer side of the body element 110 is relatively close to the cleaning brush or other working device attached to the extension pipe 40.

The button 210 to actuate the supporting element is placed in the installation element 118 for a button formed of palasbari left and right housings 111 and 112 together. On the outer periphery of the button 210 to actuate the supporting element is formed by the bounding edge 211, and the push protrusion 212, which is intended for lowering the hook element 220, acts on the lower side of the button so that it is facing hook elements 221 and 222.

The installation element 118 for the button protrudes from the upper surface of the left and right housings 111 and 112, so that the user can easily find and press the button 210 to actuate the supporting element with the "upper hand" extension tubes.

As shown in figure 2, the installation portion 118 for the button contains a groove 119 under the edge corresponding to the bounding edge 211 of the button 210. The groove 119 under the rib has a predetermined depth so that the button 210 to actuate the supporting element can be moved in the installation part 118 for a button to actuate the supporting element between the first and second positions. Accordingly, the guide rib 211 is in the groove 119 under the rib, thereby preventing the separation of the button 210 to actuate the supporting element.

Hook element 220 holds the supporting element 120 at the top and "not on track". It is installed in the left and right housings 111 and 112 so that it can move under the action to opci 210 to actuate the supporting element. As shown in figure 2, the hook element 220 includes a first hook element 221, pivotally attached to rotate to the left of the housing 111, and the second hook element 222, pivotally attached to rotate to the right to housing 112.

Each of the first and second hook elements 221 and 222 has a hinge protrusion 223, which interacts with the opportunity slip from the guide groove 117 of the hinge. The guide groove 117 hinge formed on the left and right housings 111 and 112. Once installed in the guide grooves 117 of the hinges, first and second hook elements 221 and 222 can be rotated around the hinge protrusions 223 and inserted in part 115 for receiving a hook formed respectively in the left and right housings 111 and 112.

At the upper end of the first and second hook elements 221 and 222 of the second elastic spring elements 225, made in the form of a cylindrical helical spring, is installed in the installation element 118 for buttons and below the upper end of the first and second hook elements for elastic pressing the first and second hook elements 221 and 222 in the locked position.

At the lower end of the first and second hook elements 221 and 222 formed protrusion 227, which interacts with the locking gripper 231 located on vspomogatelnm supporting element 230, attached to the support element 120, thereby fixing the supporting element 120 in its second position, in which the supporting element 120 is not used.

The first and second hook elements 221 and 222 have the notch 229 for the adjusting protrusion, which corresponds to the pressure protrusion 212 and which includes a pressure protrusion 212. The notch 229 for the adjusting protrusion creates a smooth movement of the pressure protrusion 212 and the hook element 220 in conjunction with each other in response to actuation button 210.

Auxiliary supporting element 230 is formed in one piece with the locking gripper 231, coupled with the protrusion 227 and connected to rotate the supporting element 120 via pin 235. The third elastic spring element 237 is located on the finger 235 together with auxiliary support element 230. The third elastic spring element 237 is in the initial position, when the auxiliary supporting element 230 is deployed to the maximum extent. Therefore, when the auxiliary supporting element 230 and the hook element 220 reteplase, the third elastic elastic element 237 is returned to its original position due to the elastic restoring force.

Further work supporting device 100 for an extension pipe according to which arianto implementation of the present invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

For floor cleaning, the user typically grasps the handle 30 of the control in one hand and the extension pipe 40 with the other hand. During execution of the cleaning work, the user can stop using the vacuum cleaner, for example, for lifting or placing items on the floor. Through the use of the supporting device 100 to the extension pipe, the user can hold the extension tube 40 standing on the floor, as shown in figure 5.

When the user clicks the button 210 to actuate the supporting element in the direction indicated by the arrow in figure 3, the button 210 to actuate the supporting element "clicks" on the hook element 220. In the hook element 220 is rotated around the hinge protrusions 223 in the direction indicated by the arrow in figure 3. As a result, the clutch retainer capture 231 with the tab 227 hook elements 220 unlinked, resulting in unfixing the supporting element 120, and creates the possibility of rotation of the supporting element 120 down around the hinge protrusions A and B in the grooves 113 and 114.

As shown in figure 4, the supporting element 120 is rotated to the first position at which the supporting element 120 is open down to the floor, due to the repelling force of the first elastic spring elements 16A and B, included in the notches 113 and 114 of the hinge with the hinge protrusion 121. Auxiliary supporting element 230 is also opened to the maximum for his degree due to the force acting from the side of the third elastic spring element 237 connected to the finger 235. Accordingly, the supporting element 120 supports the extension pipe 40 essentially vertically relative to the floor, and an auxiliary supporting element 230 protects the supporting element 120 from tilting or falling.

When the user resumes work on cleaning the supporting element 120 is turned upward in the second position, thereby it is difficult to provide firm contact with his body element 110. The first and second hook elements 221 and 222 of the sliding surface of the auxiliary support element 230 and extend in the transverse direction as if the button 210 to actuate the supporting element is pressed. In an alternative embodiment, the supporting element 120 for extension pipe is in contact with the extension pipe 40. Auxiliary supporting element 230 is rotated in contact with the first and second hook elements 221 and 222, so that the locking gripper 231 engages with the protrusion 227. Therefore, when turning the auxiliary support is iwaisako element 230 in the second position the locking gripper 231 engages with the protrusion 227, formed on the first and second hook elements 221 and 222, thereby locking the supporting element 120 in the second position. Accordingly, the user can resume work on cleaning when the supporting element 120 by putting it in contact with the extension pipe 40.

As can be appreciated from the above description, the user can hold the extension tube 40 standing on the floor in the middle of cleaning and re-use of the extension pipe 40, and thus he does not need to bend down to lift the extension pipe 40 or the control handle 30 from the floor.

FIELD: processes for collecting dust, cleaning rooms, removing dust from electronic devices, industrial equipment.

SUBSTANCE: method comprises steps of using controlled compressed air pulses for tearing-off dust particles from rigid surface in hard-to-reach places, for mixing dust particles with air and then for removing them by means of pulses of directed suction flows of air created with use of vacuum cleaner. In suction zone upon dust stuck to surface of cleaned object pulses of directed compressed air flows are acted for tearing dust particle from surface by means of compressed air stream and for mixing them with air. At process of cleaning changing characteristics of compressed air pulses, orientation and shape of air streams while changing frequency of compressed air pulses, their duty factor, amplitude of flow rate and pressure of compressed air according to condition providing maximum activation of dust without damaging members. Pulses of compressed air flows are applied by bursts during phase of dust activation. At cleaning process number of pulses in bursts, shape, duty factor, frequency of pulses, duty factor of pulse bursts are changed according to condition providing maximum rate of dust activation for cleaned surface. Novelty is feed of train of short pulses in phase of dust activation before feeding one long pulse in order to create pulsating flows of compressed air providing pressure drop. It allows accelerate dust particle tearing from surface due to creation of pulsating turbulent air flows near cleaned surface. Dust-laden air is sucked by means of pulses of directed suction flows of air. Method may be used in home and industrial rooms for cleaning complex-profile surfaces.
