  1. The ornamental design for a housing for an air cleaner, as shown and described.
Description

FIG. 1 is a front side elevational view of a first embodiment of a housing for an air cleaner, according to our new design, an outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 2 is a back side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 1, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view of the housing of FIG. 1, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 4 is a top plan view of the housing of FIG. 1, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 5 is a right side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 1;

FIG. 6 is a left side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 1, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 7 is a second front side elevational view of the housing according to the embodiment of FIGS. 1-6, depicting an alternate outlet tube angled from the housing and in broken lines and thus showing the outlet tube is not part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 8 is a right side elevational view of a first alternate embodiment to the housing of FIG. 1; the front side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 8 being identical to that illustrated in FIG. 1; the back side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 8 being identical to that illustrated in FIG. 2; the bottom plan view of the embodiment of FIG. 8 being identical to that illustrated in FIG. 3; the top plan view of the embodiment of FIG. 8 being identical to that illustrated in FIG. 4; and the left side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 8 being identical to that illustrated in FIG. 6; thus, the only substantial differences between the embodiment of FIG. 8 and the embodiment of FIGS. 1-6 being in the right side elevational view;

FIG. 9 is front side elevational view of a second alternate embodiment of a housing for an air cleaner, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 10 is a back side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 9, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 11 is a bottom plan view of the housing of FIG. 9, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 12 is a top plan view of the housing of FIG. 9, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 13 is a right side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 9;

FIG. 14 is a left side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 9, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented; the view of FIG. 14 being identical to the view of FIG. 6;

FIG. 15 is a second front side elevational view of the embodiment of FIGS. 9-14 according to the present invention, depicting an alternate outlet tube in broken lines and thus showing that the outlet tube is not a portion of the invention;

FIG. 16 is a third alternate embodiment showing a right side elevational view of the housing, the front side elevational of the embodiment of FIG. 16 being identical to FIG. 9; the back side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 16 being identical to FIG. 10; the bottom plan view of the embodiment of FIG. 16 being identical to FIG. 11; the top plan view of the embodiment of FIG. 16 being identical to FIG. 12; and the left side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 16 being identical to FIG. 14; thus, the embodiment of FIG. 16 differing from the embodiment of FIGS. 1-6 and the embodiment of FIGS. 9-14 only substantially with respect to the right side elevational view;

FIG. 17 is a front side elevational view of a fourth embodiment of a housing for an air cleaner, according to the present invention; the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 18 is a back side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 17, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 19 is a bottom plan view of the housing of FIG. 17, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being a part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 21 is a right side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 17;

FIG. 22 is a left side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 17, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 23 is a second front side elevational view of the embodiment of the housing shown in FIGS. 17-22 according to the present invention, depicting an alternate outlet tube in broken lines and thus showing that it is not a part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 24 is a right side elevational view of a fifth alternative embodiment; the front side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 24 being identical to FIG. 17; the back side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 24 being identical to FIG. 18; the bottom plan view of the embodiment of FIG. 24 being identical to FIG. 19; the top plan view of the embodiment of FIG. 24 being identical to FIG. 20; and the left side elevational view of the embodiment of FIG. 24 being identical to FIG. 22; thus, the embodiment of FIG. 24 differing from the embodiment of FIGS. 17-22 only substantially with respect to the right side elevational view;

FIG. 25 is a front side elevational view of a sixth alternative embodiment of a housing for an air cleaner according to the present invention, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;

FIG. 26 is a back side elevational view of the housing of FIG. 25, the outlet tube being shown in broken lines and not being part of the design sought to be patented;
