Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0806527A2] A forced discharge device for sanitary fixtures comprises a generally cylindrical body (11), which is shaped with an inlet opening (12) and an outlet opening (13); a cup-shaped element that moves in the body between an extended position, in which it closes the inlet opening and a retracted position in which it leaves said inlet opening free; a distributor element (16) fixed in the body, having ducts for compressed air; a twin piston element (15) movable inside the cup between a retracted position and an extended expelling position. The device is suitable for sanitary fixtures of various types, including tip-up foldaway fixtures. The device operates efficiently and reliably even in situations in which the discharge has a very small section or an upward, long or winding course; it allows water consumption to be limited; it allows a moderate power consumption. <IMAGE>
