Scientific experiments do not stop surprising us, since new elements, formulas and objects are being discovered all the time that promise to make our lives easier.
“The key to making a splash-free urinal is to make sure that a person’s stream of urine hits the porcelain at a shallow angle.”
Recently a group of scientists from Canada created an innovative urinal that prevents splashing in the areas around the bathroom. It is undoubtedly an invention that will leave more than one person happy, and that will facilitate the cleaning of this object in many homes and spaces open to the public.
Following a study in which a team of scientists poured dyed liquids into conventional urinals, they found several significant splashes that, in the real world, they would have ended up on a person’s legs and feet and in the areas around the latrine.
“The key to making a splash-free urinal is to make sure that a person’s stream of urine hits the porcelain at a shallow angle no matter which way it’s directed,” the group of scientists said, the scientists said.
These urinals are tall and narrow with a curved interior surface. The mechanical engineer Zhao Pan, from the University of Waterloo (Canada) calls the corner where the liquid must be directed to “avoid splashing” as “the critical angle”.
When the scientists repeated the experiment on the new urinal designs, and inspected the surfaces of the urinals, they noted that they could not find a single drop of urine. Nevertheless It was not specified whether users will have to use the urinals in any specific way to avoid splashing or if it can be used in any way.
At this time there are no plans to sell these urinals to the general public. The team of scientists assures that they will begin to implement them in specific events and will verify that they work correctly. If this is true, from there it will be seen how they will be marketed.
