Air Conditioning Corporation,


Original application March 30, 1936, Serial No.

Divided and this application December 5, 1936, Serial No. 114,494

2 Claims.

The present application is a division of Serial Number 71,768 filed on March 30, 1936.

This invention relates to an improved air conditioning apparatus by means of which ozone may be produced and fed into a room to mix with air therein and serve to purify the same.

Another object of the invention is to permit the variable source of ozone to be easily adjusted by an adjusting device having an actuating memher disposed externally of the housing where it is readily accessible.

Other and further objects of the invention will become apparent from a reading of the following specification taken in conjunction with the drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a view of a modified form of constant source of ozone, and

Figure 2 is a sectional view taken along line I5I5 of Figure 1.

An ozonizer may be constructed as shown in Figures 1 and 2. In this form of ozone generator a frame rests upon a platform and supports a cylinder H9. The shaft I has its projecting end portions resting in bearings I2I at the upper ends of standards forming end positions of a supporting frame for the cylinder.

These standards are provided with legs I23 at their lower ends and a cross bar I24 integrally unites the standards and maintains them in an upright position. Therefore, a rigid frame is provided and the cylinder will be well supported. Instead of using a curtain or sleeve as an outer electrode, there has been provided an arcuate plate I25 supported upon legs I26 which are of such height that the plate or saddle I25 fits snugly about the cylinder between the heads or caps I21 of the cylinder.

T QFHQCE The saddle is lined with screening as shown at I28 and when the device is in operation and high voltage current is passing through the glass formed.

cylinder ozone will be appended claims.

What is claimed is:

' 1. In an air conditioner, an ozone generator comprising a support having end standards, a glass cylinder, heads of insulation closing ends of said cylinder, a metal sleeve fitting snugly within said cylinder between the heads and constituting an inner electrode, a metal shaft extending axially through the cylinder with end portions passing through the heads and. supported by said standards, and adapted to have a circuit wire attached thereto, an arm extending radially from said shaft within the cylinder and engaging the metal sleeve, and a metal troughshaped plate bearing against the under portion of the cylinder between the caps and having depending supporting legs, said plate constituting an outer electrode and adapted to have a circuit wire connected therewith.

2. The structure of claim 1 wherein the sleeves are formed of Woven wire fabric having its strands extending spirally about the cylinder whereby the sleeves may be diametrically adjusted to fit the cylinder.
