It should be noted that the electrolysis electrode 21 may be actually located at the avoiding opening 101, or may enter into the space extending between the outer tub 10 and the inner tub through the avoiding opening 101.
In the assembly process of the clothes treatment equipment provided by the embodiment of the invention, the electrolytic electrode 21 and the mounting part 30 can be assembled into a whole, the electrolytic electrode 21 is placed into the avoidance opening 101 from the outer side of the outer barrel 10, or the electrolytic electrode extends into the space between the outer barrel 10 and the inner barrel through the avoidance opening 101, the mounting part 30 seals the avoidance opening 101 from the outer side of the outer barrel 10, and then the mounting part 30 is tightly connected with the outer barrel 10. From the above, the assembly process of the electrolysis device 20 and the mounting member 30 of the embodiment of the invention is simple, the assembly process is less, the assembly time can be reduced, and the production cost can be saved; furthermore, after electrolytic device 20 broke down, the maintenance personal can directly demolish installed part 30 from the outside of outer bucket 10, installed part 30 drives electrolytic device 20 and removes from outer bucket 10 together, can change new electrolysis electrode 21 afterwards or maintain old electrolysis electrode 21, after changing or maintaining, again with installed part 30 and electrolysis electrode 21 assembly on outer bucket 10 can, the connection structure between outer bucket 10 and the inner tube can not demolishd to this process, easy maintenance, can greatly reduce maintenance work load, reduce user's cost of maintenance.
The fastening connection of the conductive connector 22 to the mounting member 30 is not limited. For example, in an embodiment, a through hole (not shown) is formed in the mounting member 30, the conductive connecting body 22 is inserted into the through hole, and the conductive connecting body 22 is adhered to an inner wall of the through hole by an adhesive, so that the conductive connecting body 22 and the mounting member 30 can be tightly connected, and on the other hand, the glue is filled between the surface of the conductive connecting body 22 and the inner wall of the through hole to play a role in sealing, thereby preventing water in the outer tub 10 from leaking out of the through hole. For another example, in another embodiment, the mounting member 30 is a plastic member, and in particular, the mounting member 30 is injection molded on the conductive connecting body 22, so that the mounting member 30 and the conductive connecting body 22 are formed as an integral structure, which can ensure the fastening connection strength and prevent the leakage at the connection position of the mounting member 30 and the conductive connecting body 22.
The electrolysis device 20 may be disposed at a suitable position of the outer tub 10 as long as it can contact the water inside the outer tub 10. For example, the electrolysis device 20 may be disposed at a sidewall of the outer tub 10 of the pulsator washing machine; or, the electrolysis device 20 is arranged at the bottom of the outer barrel 10 of the pulsator washing machine; alternatively, the electrolysis device 20 is disposed at the bottom of the tub 10 of the drum washing machine.
In the embodiment of the present invention, the electrolytic device 20 is disposed at the bottom of the outer tub 10, i.e. the electrolytic device 20 is disposed at the lowest position in the inner surface of the outer tub 10, so that even if there is only a small amount of water in the outer tub 10, the electrolytic electrode 21 can still be ensured to contact with the water for performing electrolytic sterilization.
It should be noted that when the inner cylinder rotates in the outer cylinder 10, the water flow moves along the circumferential direction of the outer cylinder 10 under the action of the centrifugal force, and in order to reduce the resistance of the electrolyzer 20 to the water flow as much as possible, referring to fig. 1, part of the structure of the outer cylinder 10 protrudes outward to form a recess 103 inside the outer cylinder 10, and the electrolysis electrode 21 is disposed in the recess 103. In this way, during the water flow moving along the circumferential direction of the outer tub 10, on one hand, the resistance of the electrolysis electrode 21 to the water flow can be reduced, that is, the electrolysis electrode 21 does not influence the normal washing, dewatering and other work of the clothes treatment equipment; on the other hand, the strong washing of the electrolysis electrode 21 by water flow can be avoided, the stress condition of the electrolysis electrode 21 can be improved, and the working reliability of the electrolysis electrode 21 can be improved.
In order to improve the sealing performance between the mounting member 30 and the outer side surface of the tub 10, in one embodiment, referring to fig. 6 and 8, the laundry treating apparatus includes a sealing ring 31, the sealing ring 31 surrounds the avoiding opening 101, and the sealing ring 31 abuts between the tub 10 and the mounting member 30. Further, in order to facilitate the installation and positioning of the sealing ring 31, a ring groove (not shown) is formed on one side of the installation component 30 facing the avoiding opening 101, and the sealing ring 31 is fitted into the ring groove, that is, a part of the structure of the sealing ring 31 is embedded into the ring groove, and the ring groove can prevent the sealing ring 31 from being distorted in the extrusion process to a certain extent.
In order to facilitate the fastening connection of the mounting member 30 with the outer tub 10, in one embodiment, referring to fig. 6 and 8, the laundry treating apparatus includes a fastening screw 32, a flange structure 102 is formed on an outer side of the outer tub 10, and the mounting member 30 is connected with the flange structure 102 by the fastening screw 32. Specifically, when the outer tub 10 is connected, the fastening screw 32 sequentially passes through the mounting member 30 and the flange structure 102, the fastening screw 32 is screwed into the flange structure 102 from the outside of the outer tub 10, and the flange structure 102 increases the dimension of the outer tub 10 along the length direction of the fastening screw 32, facilitates the connection between the outer tub 10 and the fastening screw 32, and improves the structural strength of the connection between the outer tub 10 and the fastening screw 32. Further, the end of the fastening screw 32 is buried in the flange structure 102, that is, the hole of the outer tub 10 for connecting with the fastening screw 32 is a blind hole, and the end of the fastening screw 32 does not penetrate through the inner surface of the outer tub 10, so that the sealing performance of the outer tub 10 can be further improved.
In one embodiment, the electrolysis electrode 21 is located in a first plane, that is, the electrolysis electrode 21 is substantially flat; the extending direction of the conductive connecting body 22 is perpendicular to the first plane, so that the electrolytic electrode 21 can be well supported by the conductive connecting body 22, and the stress condition of the electrolytic electrode 21 is good; alternatively, the extending direction of the conductive connection body 22 is parallel to the first plane, or the extending direction of the conductive connection body 22 is located in the first plane. Further, in an embodiment, the first plane is parallel to the axial direction of the outer tub 10, that is, the first plane extends along the axial direction of the outer tub 10, on one hand, the electrolysis electrode 21 does not form a large resistance to water flow, and on the other hand, the electrolysis electrode 21 can be substantially placed against the outer tub 10, does not occupy a large space, and is compact.
Referring to fig. 7, the electrolysis electrode 21 includes an electrolysis cathode 211 and an electrolysis anode 210, and correspondingly, the conductive connector 22 includes a cathode conductive connector 221 and an anode conductive connector 222, the cathode conductive connector 221 is electrically connected to the electrolysis cathode 211, and the anode conductive connector 222 is electrically connected to the electrolysis anode 210.
In one embodiment, the electrolytic cathode 211 includes a first support portion 2101 and at least first comb teeth 2102 extending from one side of the first support portion 2101 to a direction away from the first support portion 2101, the first comb teeth 2102 being arranged at intervals along a length direction of the first support portion 2101; the electrolytic anode 210 includes a second support portion 2111 and at least one second comb tooth 2112 extending from one side of the second support portion 2111 in a direction away from the second support portion 2111, the plurality of second comb teeth 2112 being arranged at intervals along the length direction of the second support portion 2111; the first comb teeth 2102 and the second comb teeth 2112 are alternately arranged at intervals in the length direction of the first support portion 2101 or the second support portion 2111, that is, the first comb teeth 2102 and the second comb teeth 2112 are in an interdigital structure. It will be appreciated that the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210 are spaced apart from each other, i.e., the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210 are not in contact at any position, so that the normal operation of the electrolytic electrode 21 is ensured.
In the clothes treating apparatus, during washing clothes, on one hand, since the gap formed between the first comb teeth 2102 and the second comb teeth 2112 is a long and narrow gap, the lint mixed in the water can easily pass through the long and narrow gap, that is, the lint is not easily blocked on the electrolytic electrode 21, and the service life of the electrolytic electrode 21 can be prolonged; on the other hand, the first comb teeth 2102 and the second comb teeth 2112 are of an interdigital structure, that is, the electrolysis cathode 211 and the electrolysis anode 210 are arranged in a staggered manner in a plane perpendicular to the thickness direction of the electrolysis electrode 21, that is, there is no overlapping portion in the plane of the electrolysis cathode 211 and the electrolysis anode 210 in the plane perpendicular to the thickness direction of the electrolysis electrode 21, when the electrolysis electrode 21 is subjected to a force along the thickness direction of the electrolysis electrode 21, even if the electrolysis cathode 211 or the electrolysis anode 210 is displaced by an external force, the electrolysis cathode 211 and the electrolysis anode 210 do not contact with each other, so that a short circuit between the electrolysis cathode 211 and the electrolysis anode 210 can be effectively prevented, and therefore, the short circuit problem in the thickness direction can be reduced or not considered in the design of the electrolysis electrode 21, and the design flexibility of the electrolysis electrode 21 can be improved.
It should be noted that, in the clothes treatment apparatus, the life of the electrolysis electrode 21 needs to match the designed service life of the clothes treatment apparatus, and if the service life of the electrolysis electrode 21 is substantially less than the designed service life of the clothes treatment apparatus, the clothes treatment apparatus may be scrapped in advance, and the consumer benefit may be damaged. The electrolytic electrode 21 in the embodiment of the invention can better ensure that impurities such as lint and the like do not block the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210, and the service life of the electrolytic electrode 21 can reach the design service life of the clothes treatment equipment.
The longitudinal direction of the electrolytic electrode 21 coincides with the longitudinal direction of the first support portion 2101 and the second support portion 2111, and the thickness direction of the electrolytic electrode 21 coincides with the thickness direction of the first support portion 2101 and the second support portion 2111.
In one embodiment, the top surface of first comb 2102 lies in a second plane, i.e., the top surface of first comb 2102 is flush, and the top surface of second comb 2112 lies in a third plane, i.e., the top surface of second comb 2112 is flush, the second plane being coincident with or parallel to the third plane. When the second plane and the third plane coincide, that is, the first comb tooth 2102 and the second comb tooth 2112 are arranged coplanar, and when the second plane and the third plane coincide, that is, the first comb tooth 2102 and the second comb tooth 2112 are slightly displaced by a certain distance in the thickness direction of the electrolysis electrode 21.
It is understood that the first comb teeth 2102 may be a single layer, or a layered structure having a certain thickness. Similarly, the second comb teeth 2112 may have a single-layer thin-layer structure or a layered structure having a certain thickness.
Further, the second plane and the third plane are both parallel to the axial direction of the tub 10. On the one hand, the resistance of the electrolytic electrode 21 to the water flow can be further reduced, and on the other hand, the acting force or component force in the radial direction of the outer tub 10 is formed on the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210 in the process of the water flow entering the recess 103, and the first comb teeth 2102 and the second comb teeth 2112 are in the interdigital structure, so that the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210 do not contact even if the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210 are displaced, and therefore, the contact short circuit of the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210 can be effectively prevented. Due to the design, the thickness of the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210 after being matched can be designed to be thin, which is beneficial to the light and thin design of the electrolytic electrode 21, so that the electrolytic electrode 21 in the embodiment of the invention can be suitably installed in a narrow space between the outer barrel 10 and the inner barrel or be tightly attached to the avoidance opening 101 of the outer barrel 10.
Referring to fig. 1 and 2, the length direction of the slit is perpendicular to the axial direction of the outer tub 10, that is, the length direction of the slit is substantially along the circumferential direction of the outer tub 10, so that the flocs can flow through the slit along with the water flow, and the flocs are not easily attached to the surfaces of the electrolytic cathode 211 and the electrolytic anode 210.
The specific structural form of the first comb 2102 is not limited, and the first comb may be in the form of a sheet, a column, a strip, or the like; similarly, the specific structural form of the second comb teeth 2112 is not limited, and may be in the form of a sheet, a column, a strip, or the like. The cross-sectional shape of the columnar shape is not limited, and may be circular, polygonal, or the like.
In the embodiment of the present invention, referring to fig. 7 and 8, the first comb 2102 has a structure substantially the same as that of the second comb 2112, the first comb 2102 is substantially parallel to the second comb 2112, and the first support portion 2101 and the second support portion 2111 are substantially parallel, so that the structure of the electrolytic electrode 21 is more compact, and the appearance shape is neat and beautiful.
Further, in one embodiment, the first comb 2102 and the second comb 2112 are higher than the top side of the bypass opening 101. On one hand, a water accumulation pit may be formed between the inner side surface of the mounting member 30 and the inner wall of the avoidance port 101, part of impurities may be deposited in the water accumulation pit, and if the electrolysis electrode 21 is located in the water accumulation pit, the impurities may be attached to the surface of the electrolysis electrode 21, so that the electrolysis efficiency of the electrolysis electrode 21 is reduced and even the electrolysis electrode is failed; on the other hand, in the process that the water flow in the outer tub 10 flows along the circumferential direction of the outer tub 10, the water flow can wash the surface of the electrolysis electrode 21, and even if some impurities are attached to the surface of the electrolysis electrode 21, the impurities are easily washed away by the water flow under the washing action of the water flow.
Another aspect of an embodiment of the present invention also provides an assembling method of a laundry treating apparatus, including the steps of:
s1: an outer barrel is provided, and an avoiding opening is formed on the outer barrel.
S2: assembling the mounting member and an electrolysis device, the electrolysis device comprising an electrolysis electrode and a conductive connector in conductive connection, the electrolysis electrode being located on one side of the mounting member and the conductive connector passing from one side of the mounting member to the other side of the mounting member. That is, the mounting member and the electrolysis device are assembled into a whole in advance, and specifically, the electrolysis device is firmly connected with the mounting member through the conductive connecting body, thereby realizing the assembly of the mounting member and the electrolysis device into a whole.
S3: the mounting part is closed to avoid the opening and is tightly connected with the outer barrel, and the electrolysis electrode is positioned on the inner side of the mounting part facing the inner barrel. That is, the electrolysis electrode can protrude into the avoidance port from the outside of the outer tub.
