AEBA'IING DEVICE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

' Patented Aug. 17', 1915.

Application fled February 6, 1915. Serial No. 6,648.

To all whom it may concern Be' it known that I, DAVE lYINBRAY a citizen of the United States, residing at Ilot Springs, in the county of Garland and State" more particularly to a device of this general character especially designed and adapted for use in connection with the treatment of the scalp; and it is an object of the invention to provide a device of this general character 'having novel and improved means whereby air under pressure is caused to pass.

through a suitablemedicated fluid whereby said fluid will be atomized.

The invention consists in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts of my improved aerating device whereby certain important advantages are attained andthe device is rendered simpler, less expensive and otherwise more convenient and advantageous for use, all as will be hereinafter more fully set forth.

The novel features of the invention will be carefully defined in the appended claims.

In order that my invention may be the better understood, I will now proceed to describe the same with reference to the accompanying drawings, wherein is disclosed a view, partlyin elevation and partly in section, of an aerating device constructed in accordance with an embodiment of my invention.

- As disclosed in the accompanying drawings, 1 denotes a reservoir or container having a filling opening 2 at one end adapted to be closed by the cap 3, said cap being provided with a discharge opening 4 in communication with the flexible tube 5 leading through the discharge member 6, herein disclosed as a comb of hollow construction, the teeth 7 whereof having their extremities open whereby it will be readily perceived that the air leading from within the container or reservoir 1 may be properly 'applied to the scalp. As the comb in its details, other than the teeth having their free extremities open, forms no part of my invention, it is not believed that a further description thereof is necessary.

Positioned within the container or reservoir 1 is a substantially U-shape pipe 8 having one extremity disposed exterlorly of the container through the top thereof, said exterior or projected portion being suitably connected with the conduit 9 leading from a suitable source of air supply under pressure. As the source of air supply under pressure may be ofa character dictated by conditions, I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself in this respect in any way, although in practice I have found it best to have the air delivered through the conduit 9 under a pressure of substantially nine pounds per square inch.

The second stem of the pipe 18 terminates slightly above the bend 11 and has engaged therewith the nozzle 12 and disposed within the stem 10 and terminating below the upper extremity thereof is the intake pipe 14 arranged in parallelism with the stems of the pipe 8 and terminating therebelow and in close proximity to the base of the container or reservoir 1 and also terminating above the water line within the reservoir, whereby it will be seen that the force of the air through the pipe 8 will draw the liquid within the container or reservoir upwardly through the intake pipe 14 and force the same through the nozzle 12.

Positioned directly above the nozzle 12 atv a predetermined distance therefrom is the convex member 15 which deflects the stream emitted from the nozzle 12 and serves particularly to break the liquid into minute particles so that the same will be forced through the tube 5 in substantially the na ture of a vapor so that the discharge from the comb member is substantially dry. It will also be readily perceived that the member 15 will cause the heavy particles of the fluid to be thrown downwardly to the initial supply of fluid within the reservoir or container.

In practice the fluid F is intended to be suitably medicated. As herein embodied, the member 15 is maintained in operative position through the medium of the diametrically opposed straps 16, the lower extremlties whereof being'connected with an annular member 17 adapted to surround and through the curved portion 11 of the pipe 8 and has its extremity within the stem 10 reinforced or braced by the transverse arm 19 intersecting the bore of the stem 10 and having its'central portion provided with a suitable opening through which the intake pipe 14 projects, the walls of said opening frictionally engaging the periphery of the pipe 14. I

From the foregoing description, it is thought to be obvious that an aerating device constructed in accordance with my invention is of an extremely simple and comparatively inexpensive nature and is particularly well adapted for use by reason of the convenience and facility with wh'ichit may be assembled, and it will also be obvious that my invention is susceptible of some change and modification Without material departure from, the principles and spirit thereof and for this reason I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself to the precise arrangement and formation of the sev eral parts herein shown in carrying out my second stem of the Ushape pipe, a member positioned directly above the nozzle and having its opposed face convexed, and an intake pipe projecting within the second stem of the "Ushape pipe and leading from a point in close proximity to the bottom of Y the reservoir.
