CIRCULAR MOVABLE AIR DISPERSION IMPLEMENT Filed Nov. 24, 1967 FE s 2...
United States Patent 3,482,077 CIRCULAR MOVABLE AIR DISPERSION IMPLEMENT Jacob L. Kleinman, Hotel Riverside Plaza, 253 W. 73rd St., New York, N.Y. 10023 Filed Nov. 24, 1967, Ser. No. 685,501 Int. Cl. Hb 1/00, 1/02, 11/00 U.S. Cl. 219-370 6 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE This invention relates to the construction of air dispersion or ventilating implements in general, and more particularly to that of a movable type.
A primary object of this invention is to provide an air dispersion or ventilating implement wherein the carrier for carrying the means for dispersion of air may be able to travel in a circular direction thereby increasing its dispersion or ventilating action during operation.
- The above and other objects of my invention are attained by a novel construction which will be hereinafter described and illustrated in the drawing in connection with a specific embodiment of the invention.
In the accompanying drawing in which such specific embodiment of my invention is illustrated, and described in the annexed specification, wherein the accomplishment of the above and other objects of the invention will be readily apparent and understood on reference to the herein, wherein:
FIG. 1 is a side view of the inner structure of the implement;
FIG. 2 is a front view showing the implement provided with heat producing means, and with means for dispersion of such heat during operation of the implement;
FIG. 3 is a top-plan view taken along the line 33 of FIG. 1, showing the manner of supporting the heat producing means;
FIG. 4 is a plan view showing the circular or elliptical means for urging the dispersion section into circular movement during the operation of the implement;
FIG. 5 shows a view of a spring structure for guiding the movement of the dispersionsection;
FIG. 6 is a view showing dispersion action; and
FIG. 7 is a view taken along the line 77 of FIG. 2.
I am showing the several figures or views by way of example for illustrative purposes and for a better and clearer understanding of my invention, and not for limitation purposes.
The size of the parts shown in the drawings herein, and the spacing therebetween, being exaggerated for clarification purposes. The design, or size, or spacing between the parts is optional with the manufacturer.
The letter S indicates a stand or casing for supporting the general structure, M indicates the motor, H indicates the housing or holder, C indicates the cam for traveling within the circular structure or tracks.
The motor M is of the conventional type and will be referred to only with respect to the herein invention.
The motor M is provided with an extension 6 cooperating with element 7 for moving the cam C within the recess or tracks 8 and 9 for operable purposes.
The holder H may be provided with an air-fan structure for ventilating purposes; but with this distinct variation; in an air-fan of the ordinary type the structure may be so arranged as to move only sideways in either direction, but can not be made to move simultaneously therewith into a longitudinal direction, whereas in my present invention the fan-structure is movable in circular direction, which actually include horizontal and simultaneous longitudinal movements of the fan-structure, thus ventilating a larger area of space during operation action of the implement.
In my present invention, the extension 6 of the motor M, is cooperating with the element 7, in a manner whereby when the head portion 11 of the cam C will travel, for example, within the recess or track 9, and will reach the spring member 12, it will urge such spring 12 out of its normal position into a location as indicated by the dotted line 15, until the head portion 11 will pass the spring member 12 and reach its destination at the end portion 16 of track 9; by this time the spring member 12 will assume its normal position; and when the head portion 11 will resume its journey towards the opposite end 17, such spring 12 will block the road to the track 9, and urge such head portion 11 to travel upon the track 8-; upon reaching the spring section 18 such head portion 11 will move such spring 18 out of its normal position into a location as indicated by the dotted line 19, and will pass such spring 18 until it will reach its destination as indicated by numeral 17; at this time the spring 18 will assume its normal position blocking the return of the head 11 unto the track 8 but instead urging such head 11 unto the track 9.
During the above explained operational action, the motor M will move upwardly or downwardly in conjunction with movements of the head portion 11 upon the tracks 8 and 9, thereby carrying the fan-structure in a somewhat circular direction, FIGS. 1 and 4.
It is clear that by rotating screw-element 2 into desired direction, the section 21' may be raised to desired degree to provide sufiicient clearance not to hinder such circular movements during operation.
If desired, the fan-blades 21 may be removed and a heat producing element, for example, a wire structure 22 comprising nickel alloy, or other suitable heat producing elements, may be connected to the housing or holder H for the purpose of dispersing heat.
Or, if desired, the fan-blades 21 may be carried by the housing H, and heat producing elements 22 may be secured to the outer net 23 located at the front of the blades 21, so that blades 21 in combination with the heating element 22 may disperse heat in a circular direction over a larger area.
If desired, locking means, for example screw members 25 may be utilized for locking the springs 12 and/or 18 into desired positions.
The springs or net structure herein may be constructed of various suitable material, of round-shaped material or flat-shaped material, for example spring 26 (FIG. 5).
The herein structure may be provided with a plurality of switch members 27 and 28 for operating the fan-structure and the heat producing element individually, or one switch for simultaneous operation of fan and heater may be arranged.
The above has been explained by way of example only and not for limitation purposes. Various other suitable means may be utilized to bring about or perform the functions or accomplishments as hereinabove pointed out and explained.
From the above it is evident, that my present invention teaches an entirely new form of structure in the art of making ventilating implements; a structure which is unique in its ability to disperse air over a large area by means of being movable in a circular direction; and although I have shown certain preferred forms or illustrations in' order to explain and describe the novelty of my invention, yet, by showing such structure, I do not, by any means, limit myself to these structures, nor to the terms used in describing same, as they are for illustrative purposes only. Various suggestions and changes of structure may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit of this invention.
1. A ventilating implement comprising a stand, a motor having a housing and a cam, said motor supported by said stand, said stand having a track formed in a circular shape, said track comprising an upper horizontally disposed track section and a lower horizontally disposed track section extending approximately in a parallel direction towards each other and joined together at their end portions forming a continuous circular track structure, said end portions each being provided with spring members for guiding said cam into desired track, said motor having means for moving said cam upon said track for carrying said housing into a circular direction.
2. In a structure as set forth in claim 1, wherein, said housing is adapted to carry an element for dispersion of air during operation of said implement.
3. In a structure as set forth in claim 1, wherein said spring members are provided with locking means for locking said springs in desired position.
4. In a structure as set forth in claim 1, wherein said implement is provided with a heat producing structure, and with dispersing means movable in said circular direction for spreading heat in a larger area of space.
5. In a structure as set forth in claim 1, wherein the front section of said implement is provided with a net arrangement carrying a heat producing structure, said wherein said heat producing structure adapted to be moved within said circular direction for dispersing heat 5 into a larger area of space during operation of said implement.
6. In a structure as set forth in claim 1, wherein said implement is provided with a fan-element and a heat producing structure operable in combination with each other for being moved simultaneously upon said track to effect dispersion in said circular direction.
