Abstract

The dryer has an air duct (6) conveying flow of air in the direction of a blower (5), where the air duct is formed with a flow chamber (7) including curved sections. The flow chamber deflects the flow of air in the direction of the blower. A displacer (8) is arranged in the flow chamber in front of the blower for producing a non-rotational inflow onto a wheel of the blower and for reducing formation of vortices. The displacer is arranged on an axis of the wheel of the blower, and is presented as an integral component of a wall section (11) of the flow chamber.

Description

Die Erfindung betrifft einen Wäschetrockner mit einem Luftkanal zur Führung eines Luftstromes in Richtung eines Gebläses, wobei der Luftkanal mit mindestens einem in Teilabschnitten gekrümmt ausgebildeten Strömungsraum ausgebildet ist, in dem der Luftstrom eine Umlenkung in Richtung Gebläse erfährt.The invention relates to a tumble dryer with an air duct for guiding an air flow in the direction of a blower, wherein the air duct is formed with at least one curved portion formed in sections flow space in which the air flow undergoes a deflection in the direction of blower.

Derartige Wäschetrockner sind z.B. unter der Typenbezeichnung Miele T 4462 C bekannt. Der Wäschetrockner ist im Bereich der Luftführungskanäle und des Wärmetauschers mit geräuschdämmenden Mitteln ausgerüstet, welche die Betriebsgeräusche des Wäschetrockners deutlich reduzieren. Im Bereich der strömungsumlenkenden Kanalabschnitte der Luftführung sind jedoch weitere Maßnahmen zur Geräuschminderung erforderlich.Such clothes dryers are e.g. known under the type designation Miele T 4462 C. The tumble dryer is equipped in the area of the air ducts and the heat exchanger with sound absorbing agents, which significantly reduce the operating noise of the tumble dryer. In the area of the flow-deflecting channel sections of the air duct, however, further measures for noise reduction are required.

Aus der EP 0 702 105 B1 ist es z. B. bekannt, das Gebläsegehäuse auf der Lufteintrittsseite mit einem das Gebläserad abdeckenden Lufteingang und einem trichterförmigen Ansatz auszubilden, in den Maßnahmen zur Geräuschdämmung integriert werden können. Dadurch wird eine Anpassung an unterschiedliche Formen der Luftführung ermöglicht. Die Optimierung des gesamten Gebläses hinsichtlich Gebläseleistung und Schallabstrahlung erfordert hier jedoch einen hohen Montageaufwand.From the EP 0 702 105 B1 is it z. B. known to form the fan housing on the air inlet side with a blower wheel covering the air inlet and a funnel-shaped approach, can be integrated into the noise reduction measures. This allows adaptation to different forms of air flow. However, the optimization of the entire blower in terms of fan performance and sound radiation here requires a high assembly cost.

Aus der DE 89 04 738 U1 ist es bekannt, vor der Ansaugöffnung eines Gebläses einen Deflektor mit Leitschaufeln anzuordnen, der den angesaugten Luftstrom in eine Helikoidalrotation bringt. Hierbei kann es aufgrund von Luftverwirbelungen zu Geräuschen am Deflektor selbst kommen, so dass eine Geräuschreduzierung nur in einem begrenzten Bereich der Strömungsintensität erreicht werden kann.From the DE 89 04 738 U1 It is known to arrange a deflector with vanes in front of the intake opening of a blower, which brings the sucked air flow in a helicoidal rotation. In this case, due to air turbulence, noise may occur at the deflector itself, so that noise reduction can only be achieved in a limited range of the flow intensity.

Aus der DE 196 44 711 A1 ist es bekannt, in einem gekrümmten Gaskanal Strömungsleitkörper anzuordnen, um den Luftstrom auf die einzelnen Prozessluftkanäle im Wärmetauscher zu verteilen bzw. aufzufächern.From the DE 196 44 711 A1 It is known to arrange in a curved gas duct flow guide to distribute the air flow to the individual process air ducts in the heat exchanger or fan out.

Der Erfindung stellt sich somit das Problem, geräuschmindernde Maßnahmen bei einem Wäschetrockner im Bereich von strömungsumlenkenden Kanalabschnitten mit möglichst geringem Montageaufwand zu realisieren.The invention thus raises the problem of implementing noise-reducing measures in a tumble dryer in the region of flow-deflecting channel sections with the least possible installation effort.

Erfindungsgemäß wird dieses Problem durch einen Wäschetrockner mit den Merkmalen des Patentanspruchs 1 gelöst. Vorteilhafte Ausgestaltungen und Weiterbildungen der Erfindung ergeben sich aus den nachfolgenden Unteransprüchen.According to the invention this problem is solved by a tumble dryer with the features of claim 1. Advantageous embodiments and further developments of the invention will become apparent from the following subclaims.

Die mit der Erfindung erreichbaren Vorteile bestehen insbesondere darin, dass das Geschwindigkeitsfeld der Luftströmung im Bereich der Umlenkung bzw. in dem gekrümmt ausgebildeten Strömungsraum vor dem Gebläse durch Anordnung eines Verdrängungskörpers vergleichmäßigt wird. Durch die sich einstellende drallfreie Anströmung des Gebläserades werden Wirbelbildungen reduziert was zu einer gleichmäßigen Strömungsverteilung über die gesamte Anströmfläche führt. Diese gleichmäßige Strömungsverteilung bewirkt eine deutliche Geräuschreduzierung bei gleichzeitig erhöhtem Volumenstrom.The advantages achievable with the invention consist in particular in that the velocity field of the air flow in the region of the deflection or in the curved flow space in front of the fan is made uniform by arranging a displacement body. By adjusting spiral-free flow of the impeller whirling are reduced resulting in a uniform flow distribution over the entire inflow. This uniform flow distribution causes a significant reduction in noise while increasing the volume flow.

Dabei ist es zweckmäßig, den Verdrängungskörper auf der Gebläseachse anzuordnen.It is expedient to arrange the displacement body on the blower axis.

Je nach Ausbildung des Strömungsraumes vor dem Gebläse kann es jedoch auch gemäß einer weiteren vorteilhaften Ausführungsform der Erfindung zweckmäßig sein, den Verdrängungskörper auf einer zur Gebläseradachse parallel verlaufenden Achse anzuordnen.Depending on the design of the flow space in front of the blower, however, it may also be expedient, according to a further advantageous embodiment of the invention, to arrange the displacement body on an axis running parallel to the blower axis.

Es ist zweckmäßig, den Verdrängungskörper rotationssymmetrisch auszubilden. In einer vorteilhaften Ausführung der Erfindung ist der Verdrängungskörper kugelförmig ausgebildet.It is expedient to form the displacement body rotationally symmetrical. In an advantageous embodiment of the invention, the displacement body is spherical.

In einer weiteren vorteilhaften Ausführung der Erfindung ist der Verdrängungskörper mit einem zylindrischen und/oder einem kegelförmigen Abschnitt ausgebildet.In a further advantageous embodiment of the invention, the displacement body is formed with a cylindrical and / or a conical portion.

Besonders vorteilhaft ist es, den Verdrängungskörper aus dem Wandabschnitt des Strömungsraumes heraus zu formen bzw. als integralen Bestandteil des Wandabschnitts des Strömungsraumes auszubilden. Gemäß einer weiteren Ausführungsform ist es auch möglich, den Verdrängungskörper als separates Bauteil im Strömungsraum anzuordnen.It is particularly advantageous to shape the displacement body out of the wall section of the flow space or to form it as an integral part of the wall section of the flow space. According to a further embodiment, it is also possible to arrange the displacement body as a separate component in the flow space.

Besonders vorteilhaft ist es in jedem Fall, die Form und Anordnung des Verdrängungskörpers abhängig von der Geometrie des Luftkanals und des Strömungsraumes vor dem Gebläse sowie abhängig vom Volumenstrom anhand von Versuchsreihen zu optimieren.In any case, it is particularly advantageous to optimize the shape and arrangement of the displacement body depending on the geometry of the air duct and the flow space in front of the blower and depending on the volume flow based on test series.

Die Beschickungsöffnung 3 wird von einem Funktionsbauteil 4 umfasst, dass auch die vordere Luftführung von der Trommel 2 in Richtung Gebläse 5 enthält. Das Funktionsbauteil 4 ist im Bereich unterhalb der Beschickungsöffnung 3 als Luftkanal 6 (teilweise geschnitten dargestellt) für den aus der Trommel 2 austretenden Luftstrom ausgebildet. Im Teilschnitt durch den Luftkanal 6 ist der Strömungsraum 7 vor dem Gebläse 5 mit dem darin angeordneten Verdrängungskörper 8 sichtbar. Der Strömungsraum, in dem der Luftstrom eine Umlenkung in Richtung Gebläse 5 erfährt, ist in Teilabschnitten gekrümmt ausgebildet.In the FIG. 1 a clothes dryer 1 with a rotatably mounted drum 2 is shown. The feed opening 3 to the drum 2 is closed by a door, not shown here. The feed opening 3 is encompassed by a functional component 4, which also contains the front air guide from the drum 2 in the direction of the blower 5. The functional component 4 is formed in the region below the feed opening 3 as an air channel 6 (partially cut) for the air flow emerging from the drum 2. In a partial section through the air duct 6, the flow space 7 is visible in front of the blower 5 with the displacement body 8 arranged therein. The flow space in which the air flow experiences a deflection in the direction of the blower 5 is curved in partial sections.

In der Figur 2 ist der Luftkanal 6 mit dem Strömungsraum 7 vor dem Gebläse 5 mit dem darin angeordneten Verdrängungskörper 8 im Schnitt gezeigt.In the FIG. 2 the air duct 6 with the flow space 7 in front of the fan 5 with the displacement body 8 arranged therein is shown in section.

Die erfindungswesentlichen Einzelheiten sind in Figur 3 vergrößert dargestellt. Der Verdrängungskörper 8 ist bei dem hier dargestellten Ausführungsbeispiel auf der Gebläseradachse 9 positioniert und rotationssymmetrisch ausgebildet. Der Verdrängungskörper 8 weist in Richtung der Anströmfläche 10 des Gebläses 5 einen kugelförmigen Abschnitt 8' auf.The essential details of the invention are in FIG. 3 shown enlarged. The displacement body 8 is positioned in the embodiment shown here on the impeller axis 9 and rotationally symmetrical. The displacement body 8 has in the direction of the inflow surface 10 of the blower 5 a spherical portion 8 '.

Der Verdrängungskörper 8 ist aus dem Wandabschnitt 11 des Luftkanals 6 bzw. des Strömungsraumes 7 heraus geformt und mit diesem einstückig verbunden. Dadurch ist der Verdrängungskörper 8 bei diesem Ausführungsbeispiel integraler Bestandteil des Luftkanals 6. Je nach Geometrie des Luftkanals 6 ist der Verdrängungskörper 8 im Bereich des Überganges zum Wandabschnitt 11 des Luftkanals 6 mit einem annähernd zylindrischen Abschnitt 8" ausgebildet, an den sich der kugelförmige Abschnitt 8' anschließt.The displacement body 8 is formed out of the wall portion 11 of the air channel 6 and the flow space 7 and integrally connected thereto. Depending on the geometry of the air duct 6, the displacement body 8 is formed in the region of the transition to the wall section 11 of the air duct 6 with an approximately cylindrical section 8 ", to which the spherical section 8 'connects.

In einem nicht gezeigten Ausführungsbeispiel der Erfindung ist der Verdrängungskörper mit einem kegelförmigen Abschnitt ausgebildet.In an embodiment of the invention, not shown, the displacement body is formed with a conical portion.

Gemäß einem weiteren nicht gezeichneten Ausführungsbeispiel der Erfindung ist der Verdrängungskörper als separates Bauteil ausgebildet und mittels einer geeigneten Verbindungstechnik (Kleben, Schweißen, Rasten etc.) im Luftkanal fixiert.According to a further not shown embodiment of the invention, the displacement body is formed as a separate component and fixed by means of a suitable connection technique (gluing, welding, notches, etc.) in the air duct.

In einer bevorzugten optimierten Ausführung der Erfindung ist der Durchmesser d des rotationssymmetrischen Abschnitts 8" des Verdrängungskörpers 8 gleich oder annähernd gleich dem mit c bezeichneten Düsendurchmesser des Gebläses 5. Die Abstimmung der Abstandsmaße a und b an die Geometrie des Strömungsraumes 7 sowie an den Düsendurchmesser c des Gebläses 5 und den Durchmesser d des Verdrängungskörpers 8 bewirkt einen konstanten Strömungsquerschnitt. Das Geschwindigkeitsfeld der Luftströmung kann über die Parameter a und b angepasst werden.In a preferred optimized embodiment of the invention, the diameter d of the rotationally symmetrical section 8 "of the displacement body 8 is equal to or approximately equal to the nozzle diameter of the blower 5 denoted by c. The coordination of the distance dimensions a and b to the geometry of the flow space 7 and to the nozzle diameter c of the blower 5 and the diameter d of the displacement body 8 causes a constant flow cross-section The velocity field of the air flow can be adjusted via the parameters a and b.

Je nach geometrischer Ausgestaltung des Strömungsraumes kann der Verdrängungskörper auch auf einer unter einem Neigungswinkel zur Gebläseradachse angeordneten Achse positioniert werden.Depending on the geometric configuration of the flow space, the displacement body can also be positioned on an axis arranged at an inclination angle to the axis of the impeller axis.
