Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19721029C1] The fluid is delivered through a nozzle (26) and is discharged along a curved path (48). The motion is provided by a mechanical follower system that has rollers (44) that are moved around surfaces (14) that are of the same shape as that of the discharge path. The rollers are mounted on spring loaded (40) arms (36) around a pivot point (30). Rotation of the arms is obtained by a belt drive (34) from a single driven pulley.
