,- This invention relates to ventilating apparatus.
It is useful in manufacturing operations, and particularly in rooms or chambers where the removal of fumes, dust, and other undesirable foreign particles or materials is desired.
An object of the invention is to provide a chamber provided with a means for carrying a direct flow of air therethrough with substantially the elimination of eddy currents. A further object is to provide means whereby a chamber is ven- I tilated by direct flow for bringing about the removal of undesirable or injurious fumes, dust, and other foreign particles. A still further object is to provide means for cleansing the walls and other areas of paint, foreign particles, etc.
A still further object is to provide means for the protection of specially equipped ventilating walls through which the flow of air and particleor fume-laden air passes. Other specific objects and advantages will appear as the specification proceeds.
The invention is illustrated, in a preferred embodiment, by the accompanying drawing, in which- Figure l is a longitudinal sectional view of a l chamber ventilated in accordance wtih my invention; Fig. 2, a broken plan View of a portion of one of the ventilating walls; Fig. 3, an enlarged detail sectional view, the section being taken as indicated at line 3 of Fig. 2; and Fig. l, a longitu- 3i dinal sectional View of a modified form of chamber embodying my invention.
In the illustration given, a chamber A is formed by a casing wall lil extending under the top and sides and a rear hood casing H. ing i l is provided with a drawoff conduit I2 leading to a suitable source of suction. The bottom wall of the chamber is provided by the floor of the building, usually concrete. If desired, a continuation of the casing for forming the floor may i be employed. The front end of the chamber is formed by a ventilating wall i3. At the rear of the casing It and just in front of the hood II is a ventilating wall l4.
Each of the walls 53 and hi provides a plurality F of ventilating openings 15 which are shown uniformly distributed over the wall.
The Walls l4 and 13 are preferably formed from a pair of spaced metal sheets, each of the sheets having inwardly drawn tubular portions which form the openings, the tubular portions of the two sheets being held in telescoping relation. For example, in Fig. 3, the wall it is provided on its outer side with inwardly drawn tubular nozzles or portions IS.
The hood cas- The inner sheet is provided with i inwardly drawn tubular portions or nozzles I 1. It will be noted that the two tubular members providing the opening i5 are telescopically engaged near their central portions. The two sheets are secured in thisrelationship by spot welding or other suitable means. It will be noted that the flow of air is not interrupted because the inner tube portion H is smaller than the tubular portion l6 and there is presented no obstructing edge.
Since the sweep of air is toward the wall I 4, it is desirable to protect the wall as much as possible to prevent the accumulation of obstructing material thereon. For example, in paint spraying operations,the air current. carries paint and fumes toward the wall M and in time there is built up an obstructing cake over Wall l4 reducing the flow passages. The same result is found with other operations in which foreign particles are drawn toward the wall M. To overcome this, I have found that waxed paper funnels l8 can be drawn into each of the tubular openings, lying over the tubes ll. Each of the funnel members l8 has an inward portion of restricted diameter and an outwardly flared portion IS, the outwardly flared portion being sufiicient to prevent the paper members from being drawn through the openings. By this means, it will be seen that the surface of the wall I 4 is very well protected by removable elements, the elements providing good protection about each of the openings through which the air is drawn. Thus, after a painting operation, the surface of wall I 4 can be readily cleared by jerking the various cups out of position and throwing them away.
In the event that dust or other abrasive particles arebe-ing drawn through the wall M, I may employ, instead of waxed paper funnels, rubber, steel, Bakelite, etc, cups. The rubber cups provide a resiilent wall. The removable rubber liners prevent the dust from striking and abrading the metal walls and greatly increase their life. When worn, they can be readily removed and new rubber sleeves l8 substituted.
In the operation of the structure shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, the painting, dust forming, or other operation contemplated, is carried on within the chamber or room A. Air is drawn through the pipe l2 so that fresh air enters through the perforated wall it and passes out of the Wall M.
After the operation or at any suitable time, the wall 14 may be cleaned by removing the members l8. In the case of abrasive, the members It need not be removed until they have worn to the extent that it is desired to replace them.
While I have shown the ventilating walls l3 and M each formed of double sheets with telescoping tubes, it will be understood that a single sheet may be employed with the tubular portions drawn therein.
In the modified structure shown in .Fig. 4, the structure is identical with that shown in Fig. 1, except that the hood member 29 is provided with an upwardly flared rear wall communicating with a suction pipe 2 l The inclined rearwall 20 is equipped at its top with a plurality of nozzles 22 through which water or other cleansing fluid is flowed to clear the wall. An inclined trough 23 at the bottom of the hood carries away the wash fluid.
While in the foregoing description, I have set forth certain specific details and steps which illustrate a method or structure. embodying the invention, it will be understood that such details and steps may be widely varied without departing from .the spirit of my invention.
I wish it to be understood that-I do not desire 1 to be-limited to the exact details of construction shown and described, for obvious modifications will occur to a person skilled in the art.
