Abstract

A body of water or liquid substance (1) which has been mixed or combined with an antifreeze agent is continually cooled by an integral refrigeration device, (not shown), and is stored and held at a predetermined temperature in insulated container. Insulated container (3) contains a heat exchanger (4). Liquid (1) is pumped through heat exchanger (4) which is at the same time being subjected to an electric fan assisted airflow, the airflow being created by electric air moving fan (5) and or by electric air moving fans (6) and (7) in the direction as indicated by arrow (8). The resultant chilled air is channelled through flexible pipe (9) into a nozzle (10) having a handle (11). The nozzle (10) may be attached to a hair dryer for also supplying heated air. The blower may be used for dehumidification purposes, condensate being collected in container (13).

Description

Hand directable chilled air blower Negative heat gun, hot and cold air gun and rapid air dehumidifier The present invention relates to a device for creating and directing a focused stream of chilled air and a device for creating and directing a focused stream of air, the temperature of which can rapidly switch from cold to warm and from warm to cold.

There are many examples of devices which create cold or chilled air, the majority of these devices are employed in air conditioning arrangements or refrigeration equipment, however these known devices are usually employed to lower the relative temperature of a room and it's occupants or are employed to maintain a container and it's contents at a predetermined low temperature, relative to the temperature outside of the said container.

There is however a need to provide a focused directable stream of chilled air which would be useful in a variety of applications, a chilled air stream that can be created in a mobile or static system and then delivered via flexible pipes into a hand held gun or nozzle arrangement, which can be deployed in a variety of beneficial and useful ways.

A focused chilled air stream can be used in a manufacturing operation, to lower the temperature of metals or plastics that have been joined or manipulated by heat and would benefit from rapid cooling. A focused chilled air stream created in a mobile unit can be employed in a laboratory where a catalytic or chemical processes could be better controlled by the use of an instant and rapid form of easily directable localised cooling.

A stream of chilled air can provide therapeutic benefits for a variety of human and animal conditions and ailments. There exist presently many treatments and restorative methods for skin; skin follicle's, skin tissues, sinews, muscles and blood vessels lying beneath the skin, one such treatment is the application of cold compresses or ice, or bags filled with ice which are placed upon the required area, a stream of chilled air would deliver a similar restorative and therapeutic effects whilst having the advantage of a negative temperature that is quicker and more convenient to control.

Treatment and stimulation of the scalp, hair follicle's, hair erector muscles and blood vessels supplying the hair root can be conveniently and inexpensively achieved by the use of a hand held chilled air gun, wherein the source of chilled air is derived from a body of pre chilled antifreeze treated water or fluid substance, furthermore the said hand held chilled air gun can be attached; combined or, used in conjunction with a gun nozzle or outlet delivering a stream of warm air. An operator can thus deliver and direct quantities of either chilled air or warm air, furthermore the operator can altemate repeatedly in succession between a warm airflow directed on and over the scalp and cold airflow directed on and over the scalp, the therapeutic, restorative and stimulating effects on the the follicle's the erector muscles and blood vessel of a skin and scalp can thus be achieved a great number of times in comparatively short time span.

A directed stream of chilled air, wherein the source of chilled air is derived from a body of previously chilled antifreeze treated water or fluid substance, combined with a similarly directed stream of warm air can also be used in a temperature alternating manner upon hair that is held in a roller or forming device to create a permanent or temporary wave in hair.

In addition the invention may also be used as a rapid dehumidifier.

It is possible to adapt current known devices to provide a focused directable stream of chilled air, however the negative temperature of the chilled air they could provide would be severely limited by the temperature of the intake air furthermore continuous nature of current air cooling mechanisms would result in an output temperature that would be of no practical use in an industrial application and provide little or no benefit as a therapeutic skin and muscle treatment, also current known devices if adapted would require an inconveniently long time to reach useful output temperature.

It is possible use liquid nitrogen as negative heat energy source to power a directable chilled air gun however such an arrangement would complex and prohibitively costly.

To achieve a focused stream of chilled air with sufficiently useful negative temperature, it is proposed in this invention that a body of water or fluid substance his held in an insulated container the said water or fluid substance being treated with glycol and or alcohol or other such chemical which has an antifreeze and or anti solidification like effect, The said water or fluid substance is cooled continuously until a predetermined negative temperature is reached, thereafter the said predetermined temperature is maintained by the employment of a thermostat.

When a focused stream of chilled air is required the said water or fluid substance which has been previously cooled by an integral refrigeration unit is circulated by means of a pump through one or a number heat exchangers. One or a number of air moving fans pushes and or pulls air over the said heat exchangers, the moving air is then channelled via flexible pipes to a gun nozzle or outlet which is equipped with a hand grip, one of the said air moving fans being situated in or adjacent to the said gun nozzle or outlet which is held and directed by an operator towards the required area or subject.

The said heat exchangers have thus converting stored negative heat energy that was held in the previously cooled said anti freeze treated water or antifreeze treated fluid substance into a stream of chilled air, the said stream of chilled air being directed and used in conjunction with warm and or humid air in a non continuous or intermittent manner.

The invention will be further described with reference to the following drawings in which Fig 1. Illustrates a schematic diagram of a typical embodiment of the invention.

Fig 2. Is a perspective view of a twin nozzle warm and chilled air gun.

Fig 3. Is a plan view of a twin nozzle warm and chilled air gun.

Fig 4. Is a perspective view of chilled air outlet nozzle attached to a hair dryer.

Fig 5. Is perspective view of chilled air gun arrangement.

In fig 1. body of water or liquid substance 1. which has been mixed or combined with antifreeze anti solidification agent is continually cooled by an integral refrigeration device, (not shown) and is stored and held a predetermined temperature in insulated container 2.

Insulated container 3. contains heat exchanger 4. Liquid 1. is pumped through heat exchanger 4. which is at the same time being subjected to an electric fan assisted airflow, the airflow being created by electric air moving fan 5. and or by electric air moving fans 6. and 7.

in the direction as indicated by arrow 8. The resultant chilled air is channelled through flexible pipe 9. into nozzle 10. nozzle 10 being equiped with a handle 11. and multiple position switch 12. which activates and deactivates a fluid pump, not shown, for the circulation of fluid 1. and also activates and deactivates electric air moving fans 5. 6. and 7.

Condensation formed by the heat exchanger 4. is channelled into container 13. which is removable for convenient disposal of water 14. that may be collected. Air intake vent 15. is furnished with shutters 16 which close of air intake vent 15. to reduce energy losses when a focused chilled air stream is not required. Wheels 21. allow the invention to moved to a required destination.

In a further embodiment of the invention as illustrated in fig 2. nozzle 10 is attached and or combined with nozzle 17 which is attached to flexible pipe 18. flexible pipe 18. is connected to a device for generating warm air which is carried when required by flexible pipe 18.

In a yet further embodiment of one aspect the invention as illustrated in Fig 4. nozzle 10. is without handle 11. and is attached to a hair dryer 19 which is equipped with a handle 20.
