Abstract

564,620. Photo-electrically controlled drying apparatus. JACKSON S. B. March 31, 1943, No. 5196. [Class 40 (iii)] [Also in Group VI] Relates to driers for personal use of the kind in which a distributing tube A has a number of transverse apertures through which heated air is delivered to flow over hands or other parts of the body. According to the invention, the drier is automatically controlled by a photo-electric apparatus influenced by the presence of a part of the body near the drier. In the apparatus shown, the tube A has two rows of apertures A<2>, A<3> and is fed with air through a heating chamber B by a blower B<4>. Lamps E<2>, E<3> at one end of the tube throw light beams F, F<1> to reflectors F<2>, F<3> at the other end, and the reflected beams F<4>, F<5> strike photo-electric cells D<2>, D3. The cells are connected to a valve relay circuit G, D controlling an electromagnetically-operated spring-returned switch C<2>, D<1>. The system is made ready for operation by the closing of a main switch C, and a switch E, whereby the lamps and the valve-relay and cell circuits are energized. If now, a hand or other part of a person comes across a light beam, the change of illumination on the cells causes the valve-relay G, D to operate to close the switch C<2>, whereby the blower B<4> and the heaters B<1>, B<2>, B3 are set in operation. In a modification, a change-over switch is provided. In one position of the switch, the apparatus operates photo-electrically as set out above. In a second position, the operation is controlled by a thermostat. In the third position, the operation is wholly under manual control. Various other minor modifications are described.
