Description

COOLER FAN The present invention relates to a cooler fan which uses a semiconductor cooler to provide a cool current of air.

In hot days. electric fans and air conditioners are commonly used for coolin. However. an electric fan gives little help in cooling people when air temperature is very high. Although air conditioners are practical in function, they are commonly expensive. When in operation an air conditioner consumes much electric power supply and produces high noises. In recent years, there is known a cooler fan which produces a current of air blowing through a water container which contains cold water. When a current of air passes through the surface of the cold water in the water container, it is simultaneously cooled down by the cold water. However, this structure cooler fan is not satisfactory in use because the water contained in the water container may be warmed up to ambient temperature quickly.

The present invention has been accomplished under the aforesaid circumstances. It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a cooler fan which is practical in use. It is another object of the present invention to provide a cooler fan which produces less noise and does not causes environmental pollution problem. It is still another object of the present invention to provide a cooler fan which is compact and light.

To achieve the above objects, a semiconductor cooler is used for transferring heat from one current of air to another without allowing them to mix. Two metal fin assemblies are respectively connected to the two opposite interfaces of the semiconductor cooler to accelerate the process of heat exchanging. Two electric fans are used to draw currents of air through the metal fin assemblies respectively. A transformer is provided to convert AC power supply into a 12V DC power supply for operating the electric fans and the semiconductor cooler.

An embodiment of the present invention will now be described by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings in which: Fig. I is a sectional side view showing the internal arrangement of the preferred embodiment of the cooler fan of the present invention: Fig. 2 is an elevational view of the partition wall, the heat absorbing fin assembly and the heat releasing fin assembly: Fig. 3 is a cross section of the semiconductor cooler: and Fig. 4 is a cross section of the preferred embodiment of the cooler fan of the present invention showing that flows of air are drawn to pass through the heat absorbing fin assembly and the heat releasing fin assembly respectively.

Referring to the various drawings attached herewith, a detailed description of the structural features of "Cooler Fan" of the present invention is as follows: Referring to Fig. 1, the preferred embodiment of the present invention is generally comprised of a housing 4 divided into a cold air chamber 41 and a hot air chamber 41' by a partition wall 40. The partition wall 40 is preferably made of bakelite having a square hole (not shown) at the center. which receives a semiconductor cooler 1.

The semiconductor cooler 1. as shown in Fig. 3. is consisted of a plurality of n-type semiconductors and a plurality of ptype semiconductors alternatively connected together. When electrically connected, a phenomenon of temperature difference occurs in each semiconductor p-n junction. causing one interface (heat absorbing interface) 10 thereof to absorb heat and the other interface (heat releasing interface )11 thereof to release heat. This heat exchanging concept was disclosed in 1834 and employed for practical use in 1900.

When installed. the two opposite interfaces 10.11 are disposed in the cold and hot chambers 41.41' respectively.

Referring to Fig. 2 and seeing Fig. 1 again. there is a heat absorbing fin assembly 2 and a heat releasing fin assembly 3 fastened in the cold air chamber 41 and the hot air chamber 41' respectively. The heat absorbing and releasing fin assemblies 2,3, which are fastened to the partition wall 40 at two opposite sides by screw bolts 21.

have each at least one heat conductive contact wall 20 or 30 closely connected to the heat absorbing interface 10 or heat releasing interface 11 of the semiconductor cooler 1. The thickness of the partition wall 40 is thinner than the semiconductor cooler 1. and therefore the heat absorbing and releasing interfaces 10.11 of the semiconductor cooler 1 project out of the two opposite large faces of the partition wall 40 and closely contact the heat conductive contact walls 20,30 of the heat absorbing and releasing fin assemblies 2.3 respectively. As indicated. the heat absorbing and releasing interfaces 10.11 of the semiconductor 1 are extended out of the two opposite large faces of the partition wall 40 and connected to the heat conductive contact walls 20.30 of the heat absorbing and releasing fin assemblies 2.3 respectively, gaps (not shown) are maintained between the partition wall 40 and the heat absorbing and releasing interfaces 10,11. These gaps are sealed with heat insulating materials (for example, asphalt) 7,7'. By means of the arrangement of the heat insulating materials 7.7'.

heat in the hot air chamber 41' is prohibited from transmitting to the cold air chamber 41.

Referring to Fig. 2 again, the heat absorbing fin assembly 2 is comprised of a plurality of corrugated metal fins 22 welded together and vertically arranged in parallel with one another. These corrugated metal fins 22 greatly increases the total surface area of the heat absorbing fin assembly 2 and the retarding time of the flow of air passing therethrough for making heat exchange. The heat releasing fin assembly 3 is comprised of a plurality of flat metal fins 32 welded together and vertically arranged in parallel with one another. These flat metal fins 32 permit heat to be quickly carried away. In order to let heat to be transferred from the heat absorbing fin assembly 2 to the heat releasing fin assembly 3 and carried away from the heat releasing fin assembly 3 by a current of air efficiently, the size of the corrugated metal fins 22 is relatively smaller than the flat metal fins 32. Furthermore. the corrugated and flat metal fins 22.32 made be made of an aluminum allov.

so that the total weight of the cooler fan can be greatly reduced without affecting the performance of heat exchanging process.

Referring to Fig. 4 and seeing Fig. 1 again, a first electric fan 5 is fastened inside the cold air chamber 41 above the heat absorbing fin assembly 2 and controlled to draw a cold draft of air from an air intake port 42 into the cold air chamber 41 permitting it to be delivered out of the housing 4 through an outlet port 43. A second electric fan 5' is fastened inside the hot air chamber 41' below the heat releasing fin assembly 3 and controlled to draw a current of air from an air intake port 42' into the hot air chamber 41' permitting it to be delivered out of the housing 4 through an outlet port 43'. Wire gauze filters 45,45',45".45"' are respectively covered on the air intake and outlet ports 42.42',43. 43' to separate out impurities in air. A transformer 6 is fastened inside the hot air chamber 41' a the bottom and connected to AC power supply.

The transformer 6 turns AC power supply into a 12 DC power supply for the first and second electric fans 5,5'. Inside the hot air chamber 41', there are provided two curved guide boards 47,47' respectively connected between the heat releasing fin assembly 3 and the air intake and outlet ports 42',43' for guiding air through the heat releasing fin assembly 3. Inside the cold air chamber 41, there are fastened two foamed polyurethane lining boards 44,44' connected between the heat absorbing fin assembly 2 and the air intake and outlet ports 42,43 for guiding air through the heat absorbing fin assembly 2.

When in use, the semiconductor cooler 1 requires a starting current about 4.6 amperes to start. When started, the semiconductor cooler 1 consumes about 0.2 ampere for normal operation. Therefore, the cooler fan is very economic in power consumption. Because no compressor has been used in the cooler fan, the problem of noisy operation is eliminated.
