Abstract

<P>PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an air conditioner capable of carrying out suction cleaning and ventilation of an air filter by a small low-output suction device. <P>SOLUTION: The air conditioner is provided with a suction nozzle 3 capable of moving along an upstream side surface of the air filter 1, and the suction device 6 connected to the suction nozzle 3. The suction nozzle 3 has a suction hole 21 for dust suction, and a suction hole opening and closing plate changing an opening area of the suction hole 21. By opening only one part of the suction hole 21 by the suction hole opening and closing plate, carrying out suction while moving the suction nozzle 3, and reducing suction air capacity while securing strong suction force, suction cleaning of the air filter 1 can be carried out by the suction device with small power. Since draft resistance is substantially reduced, and an air capacity is increased by fully opening the suction hole 21 and carrying out suction, it can be used for ventilation of air of a room. <P>COPYRIGHT: (C)2005,JPO&NCIPI

Description

  The present invention relates to an air conditioner that automatically cleans a filter.

  In a conventional air conditioner, an air filter is provided on the front surface of the heat exchanger to prevent dust from entering the inside of the air conditioner body. It was detachably provided on the air conditioner body so that it could be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner. Such an air filter not only requires frequent maintenance, but the air filter gradually clogs until the maintenance is performed, resulting in a reduction in the amount of air passing through the heat exchanger. As a result, the air conditioning capacity is reduced, leading to an increase in power consumption.

Therefore, for the purpose of reducing the maintenance work of the air filter, a belt-like air filter stretched around the drive shaft and a rotating brush in contact with the surface of the air filter are provided, and the air filter is rotated by rotating the drive shaft. There is an air conditioner in which dust accumulated on its surface is scraped by rotating a rotating brush while moving (see, for example, Patent Document 1).
JP-A-6-74521

  However, in the air conditioner that scrapes off dust adhering to the air filter with the above brush, the brush and the air filter are rubbed against each other, so the dust gets entangled with the brush, or the brush wears or deforms and the dust collecting performance decreases. There were problems such as. In addition, since the brush is provided over the entire width of the air filter, high torque is required to rotate the brush, which increases the driving means of the brush, and the air conditioner main body for securing the storage space There was a problem of increasing the size.

  From this point of view, as a method for automatically cleaning the air filter, it is preferable to suck the dust adhering to the air filter with a suction nozzle and collect the sucked dust in a dust collector or discharge it outside the room.

  However, in this method, in order to clean the entire surface of the air filter, it is desirable to provide a suction nozzle with a long slit-like suction hole corresponding to the entire length of the air filter, and suck and clean the dust adhering to the air filter from the suction hole. When trying to suck from the whole suction hole, the suction air volume increases, so the output of the suction device becomes very large, which not only consumes power but also makes it difficult to incorporate the suction device inside the air conditioner body There was a problem.

  The present invention solves the above-described conventional problems, and an object thereof is to provide an air conditioner that can perform suction cleaning of an air filter with a small output and small suction device and also has a ventilation function.

In order to solve the conventional problems, an air conditioner of the present invention includes a heat exchanger, an air filter that collects dust contained in the air flowing into the heat exchanger, and an upstream surface of the air filter. A suction nozzle movable along the suction nozzle and a suction device connected to the suction nozzle, the suction nozzle having a suction hole for sucking dust and a suction hole opening / closing plate for changing an opening area of the suction hole. With the suction hole opening / closing plate, only a part of the suction hole is sequentially opened, and suction is performed while moving the suction nozzle. As a result, the suction air volume is reduced and the suction force is secured while ensuring a strong suction force at the suction hole. The air volume can be reduced, and suction cleaning of the entire surface of the air filter can be performed with a small power suction device. Also, if the suction hole is fully opened by the suction hole opening / closing plate and sucked, the air velocity at the suction hole is lowered, so the ventilation resistance is greatly reduced, and the air volume is greatly increased even if the output of the suction device is the same. The air in the room can be ventilated by use, and furthermore, by fully closing the suction hole, it is possible to prevent the backflow of air from occurring on the suction nozzle side during standby of the suction device.

  The air conditioner of the present invention is an extremely small and low-power suction device that automatically sucks and cleans dust adhering to the air filter, greatly reducing maintenance work, and ventilating using a suction nozzle. The indoor air can always be kept clean.

  The first invention includes a heat exchanger, an air filter that collects dust contained in the air flowing into the heat exchanger, a suction nozzle that is movable along an upstream surface of the air filter, and the suction A suction device connected to the nozzle, the suction nozzle having a suction hole for sucking dust and a suction hole opening / closing plate for changing an opening area of the suction hole. If the suction nozzle is moved while the suction nozzle is moved sequentially, the suction air volume is reduced and the suction air volume can be reduced while securing a strong suction force at the suction hole. Suction cleaning of the entire surface of the air filter can be performed with a suction device. In addition, if suction is performed with the suction hole opening / closing plate fully opened, the air velocity at the suction hole will drop, so the resistance to ventilation will be greatly reduced, and even if the output of the suction device is the same, the air volume will increase greatly. Thus, the air in the room can be ventilated, and further, by fully closing the suction hole, it is possible to prevent the backflow of air from occurring on the suction nozzle side during standby of the suction device.

  In the second invention, in particular, the suction hole opening / closing plate of the first invention is reciprocated horizontally with respect to the suction hole to change the opening area of the suction hole, and the suction nozzle is made thin. It is possible to prevent the air conditioner body from becoming large due to the addition of the suction nozzle.

  In the third invention, in particular, the suction hole opening and closing plate of the first invention is rotated in the horizontal direction with respect to the suction hole to change the opening area of the suction hole, and the suction nozzle can be configured to be thin, A simple structure can be obtained, and an increase in the size of the air conditioner body can be suppressed, and the structure can be reduced.

  In the fourth invention, in particular, the suction hole opening / closing plate of the first invention is reciprocated in the direction perpendicular to the suction hole to change the opening area of the suction hole, and the width of the suction nozzle is reduced. It is possible to suppress a decrease in the flow rate of air flowing through the heat exchanger due to the provision of the suction nozzle, and it is possible to achieve both the built-in suction nozzle and the performance of the air conditioner.

  In the fifth invention, in particular, the suction hole opening / closing plate of the first invention is rotated in the direction perpendicular to the suction hole to change the opening area of the suction hole, and the suction nozzle width is reduced. It is possible to suppress a decrease in the flow rate of air flowing through the heat exchanger by the suction nozzle, and to achieve both the built-in suction nozzle and the performance of the air conditioner.

The sixth invention, in particular, comprises a spring for urging the suction hole opening / closing plate of any one of the second to fifth inventions in the direction of closing the suction hole, and a wire connected to the suction hole opening / closing plate, The wire is driven against the biasing force of the spring to move or rotate the suction hole opening / closing plate. By using a thin wire for driving force transmission, the suction nozzle can be made thin. It is possible to suppress the increase in the size of the air conditioner body due to the addition of the suction nozzle.

  According to a seventh aspect of the present invention, in particular, a motor having a sawtooth formed on the suction hole opening and closing plate of the first invention and a gear meshing with the sawtooth is provided, and the suction hole opening and closing is driven by the motor. The plate is driven, and the opening / closing operation of the suction hole opening / closing plate can be reliably performed with a strong force, and the suction cleaning performance can be prevented from being deteriorated due to the opening / closing operation failure of the suction hole.

  In an eighth aspect of the invention, in particular, a motor having a screw groove formed in the suction hole opening / closing plate of the first invention and a rotating shaft meshing with the screw groove is provided, and the suction hole opening / closing is performed by driving the motor. The plate is driven, and the opening / closing operation of the suction hole opening / closing plate can be reliably performed with a strong force, and the suction cleaning performance can be prevented from being deteriorated due to the opening / closing operation failure of the suction hole.

  In the ninth aspect of the invention, in particular, a sealing material is provided in a portion facing the peripheral portion of the suction hole of the suction hole opening / closing plate of any one of the first to eighth aspects. Even if foreign matter such as a foreign substance adheres, it can be reliably sealed, so that suction suction can be prevented even when dust is being sucked by some suction holes and other suction holes are incompletely closed by foreign matter. It is possible to prevent the cleaning performance from deteriorating.

  Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings. Note that the present invention is not limited to the embodiments.

(Embodiment 1)
FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing an air filter attachment portion of an air conditioner according to Embodiment 1 of the present invention.

  In the figure, reference numeral 1 denotes an air filter that collects dust contained in air flowing into a heat exchanger (not shown), and is composed of a filter frame 1a and a filter net 1b, and the upstream surface of the air filter 1 A suction nozzle 3 is provided that is movable along The suction nozzle 3 is supported by guide rails 4 installed at the upper and lower ends of the filter frame 1a, and can move smoothly from side to side with a very narrow gap from the surface of the air filter 1.

  Further, a slit-like suction hole 21 having a width of 2 to 3 mm is provided on the surface of the suction nozzle 3 on the air filter 1 side, and dust adhering to the air filter 1 is sucked through the suction hole 21. Furthermore, one end of a suction duct 5 is connected to the suction nozzle 3, and the other end of the suction duct 5 is connected to a suction device 6 incorporating an electric blower (not shown) that generates suction air. The suction duct 5 is composed of a bellows hose having excellent flexibility so that the left and right movement of the suction nozzle 3 can be prevented, and is formed to be bendable.

  Further, the exhaust side of the suction device 6 is connected to an exhaust duct 7 communicating with the outside. The dust of the air filter 1 sucked by the suction nozzle 3 is discharged to the outside through the suction duct 5, the suction device 6, and the exhaust duct 7.

  FIG. 2 is a schematic perspective view showing the internal structure of the suction nozzle 3. As shown in FIG. 1, the suction nozzle 3 has a structure bent along the air filter 1, but in order to facilitate the explanation, the suction nozzle 3 is straightly extended in FIG. It is described. The suction nozzle 3 is provided with a slit-like suction hole 21 for sucking dust adhering to the air filter 1, and the suction hole 21 is divided into four parts, a suction hole A21a, a suction hole B21b, a suction hole C21c, and a suction hole D21d. Has been.

The suction nozzle 3 is provided corresponding to each of the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d) and reciprocates in the horizontal direction to open and close the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d). Plates 22a to 22d are provided.

  FIG. 2 shows a state in which, among the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d), only the suction hole A21a is opened, and the other suction holes B to D (21b to 21d) are closed. When suction is performed by operating the suction device 6 in this state, the flow of the sucked air is as shown by white arrows in the figure, and is sucked only by the suction hole A21a. In FIG. 3, only the suction hole B21b is opened, and the other suction holes A, C, D (21a, 21c, 21d) are closed, and suction is performed only by the suction hole B21b. Similarly, the suction hole C21c and the suction hole D21d can be sequentially opened.

  Next, a specific operation when the entire surface of the air filter 1 is suction-cleaned by the suction nozzle 3 having the above-described configuration will be described.

  First, as shown in FIG. 2, the suction hole opening / closing plate 22a is moved to the right to open only the suction hole A21a, and the suction nozzle 3 is moved back and forth along the guide rail 4 while operating the suction device 6. Then, suction cleaning is performed over the entire width in the range (1) of the air filter 1 corresponding to the suction port A21a. Next, as shown in FIG. 3, the suction hole opening / closing plate 22a is moved to the left to close the suction hole A21a, and the suction hole opening / closing plate 22b is moved to the right to open the suction hole B21b. While operating the apparatus 6, the suction nozzle 3 is reciprocated along the guide rail 4 to perform suction cleaning over the entire width in the range (2) of the air filter 1 corresponding to the suction port B21b. Similarly, in order, the suction hole B21b is closed and the suction hole C21c is opened, the suction hole C21c is closed and the suction hole D21d is opened, and the suction operation is performed. The range is suction-cleaned, and suction cleaning of the entire surface of the air filter 1 is completed.

  By doing in this way, although the air volume which passes each suction hole reduces to 1/4 of the case where all the suction holes are sucked (when the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d) are all opened), Since the suction opening area is reduced, the necessary wind speed can be secured for the air speeds at the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d), and a sufficient suction force can be obtained.

  Here, when all suction holes A to D (21a to 21d) are opened and suction is simultaneously performed at the required wind speed, and suction holes A to D (21a to 21d) are opened one by one and sucked Compared to that of (1), the required power can be reduced to 1/64 (since the required power is proportional to the cube of the air volume). Thus, the power required for the suction device 6 can be extremely small, and the suction device 6 can be reduced in size accordingly.

  Further, if all the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d) are opened to widen the entire opening area, the air flow resistance at that portion can be reduced, so that the ventilation resistance can be greatly reduced. Although the airflow is the same, the air volume increases greatly (of course, the suction force is greatly reduced, so suction cleaning is not performed in this state). By utilizing this, it becomes possible to flow the air volume necessary for ventilation of the room from the suction nozzle 3, and the air conditioner can have a ventilation mode using the suction nozzle 3.

  Further, when the suction device 6 is in a stopped state (standby state), if strong wind blows outdoors, the wind flows backward from the exhaust duct 7 communicating with the outdoors toward the suction nozzle 3, and the suction nozzle 3 enters the inside. The adhering dust may be ejected. In this case, such backflow can be prevented by closing all the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d).

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, not only the suction device 6 can be miniaturized, but also the suction nozzle 3 can be provided with a ventilation function or a backflow prevention function.

  Further, as shown in the present embodiment, the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d are built in the suction nozzle 3, and the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d) are reciprocated in the horizontal direction so that the suction is performed. It is possible to make the nozzle 3 thin, and it is also possible to suppress the increase in the size of the air conditioner body as much as possible. In addition, as shown in FIG. 1, even if the suction nozzle 3 is bent in an L shape, the suction nozzle 3 can be configured without any problem, and the design of the suction nozzle 3 can have a degree of freedom.

  FIG. 4 is a schematic perspective view showing the internal structure of the suction nozzle 3 in the present embodiment (for the sake of clarity, the suction hole C21c and the suction hole D21d are shown as representatives).

  In this figure, the suction hole C21c is closed and the suction hole D21d is in an open state. (A similar mechanism is also provided in the suction holes A to D). A pair of springs 41 for biasing the suction holes A to D (21a to 21d) in the closing direction to the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d, respectively, and pulling against the biasing force of the spring 41 The wire 42 is provided, and the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d are normally fixed at the closed position by the force of the spring 41 (in the drawing, the state of the suction hole C21c).

  Each suction hole opening / closing plate 22a to 22d is opened by pulling the wire 42 against the force of the spring 41 (state of the suction hole D21d in the figure). As a method of pulling the wire 42, there are a method of winding the wire 42 with a motor (not shown), or a method using an actuator wire (the wire is contracted and pulled by energizing the wire). According to this method, by using the thin wire 42 for driving force transmission, the suction nozzle 3 can be configured to be thin, and the addition of the suction nozzle 3 can prevent the air conditioner body from becoming large.

  Further, in the specification in which the suction nozzle 3 is straight (flat), as shown in FIG. 5, the suction nozzle 3 is horizontally oriented with respect to the suction holes AD (21a to 21d) around one end of each of the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d. You may make it the mechanism to rotate. By adopting such a configuration, a simpler configuration can be achieved, the cost can be reduced, and obstacles in the dust flow path can be reduced, so that ventilation resistance can be reduced.

  In addition to the above-described driving method of the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a-22d using the spring 41 and the wire 42, as shown in FIG. 6, each of the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a-22d is provided with sawtooth teeth 61. The suction hole opening / closing plate 22 is driven by driving the gear 62 meshed with the tooth 61 by the motor 63, or the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d are cut into thread grooves as shown in FIG. A plate 71 (not shown in the figure but having a thread groove formed therein) is provided, passes through a rotating shaft 72 that meshes with the thread groove of the standing plate 71, and is driven by a motor 73. (Also in FIG. 5 to FIG. 7, the suction holes C and D are shown as representatives in the same manner as in FIG. 4). According to these methods, the opening / closing operation of the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d can be reliably performed with a strong force, and the suction cleaning performance can be prevented from being lowered due to the opening / closing operation failure of the suction holes 21a to 21d. Alternatively, although not particularly illustrated, it goes without saying that a method of driving the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d using an electromagnet or a servomotor can be easily considered.

(Embodiment 2)
FIG. 8 is a partial perspective view of suction nozzle 3 of the air conditioner according to Embodiment 2 of the present invention. In addition, about the same part as the said embodiment, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

In the first embodiment, the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d are all reciprocally moved or rotated in the horizontal direction with respect to the suction holes AD (21a to 21d). In contrast, in the present embodiment, the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d are biased by the springs 41 in the direction of closing the suction holes AD (21a to 21d), and the suction holes opening / closing plates 22a are covered by the wires 42. ˜22d is reciprocated in the vertical direction with respect to each suction hole AD (21a-21d) (moved up and down in the drawing) to open and close each suction hole AD (21a-21d) It is.

  Alternatively, as shown in FIG. 9, one side (left side in the drawing) of each suction hole opening / closing plate 22a to 22d is rotatably supported, and each suction hole A-D (21a is supported by a torsion spring 42. 21d) is urged in the closing direction, and the suction holes A / D (21a to 21d) are rotated by rotating the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d against the biasing force of the spring 42 with the wire 42. May be opened and closed.

  In each of the forms shown in FIGS. 8 and 9, springs and wires are used to open and close the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d. The saw described in FIGS. 6 and 7 of the first embodiment is used. It is easy to apply a method using tooth teeth and a rotating shaft, and a method using an electromagnet.

  According to the above configuration, the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d are moved in the vertical direction with respect to the suction holes AD (21a to 21d), so that each suction hole opening / closing is performed as compared with a case where the suction holes are opened horizontally. The space for the reciprocating operation of the plates 22a to 22d is not required, the lateral width of the suction nozzle 3 can be reduced, and the flow rate of air flowing through the heat exchanger of the air conditioner is obstructed by the suction nozzle 3, leading to a decrease in the air volume. Therefore, it is possible to achieve both the built-in suction nozzle 3 and the performance of the air conditioner.

(Embodiment 3)
FIG. 10 is a cross-sectional view (cross-sectional view taken along line EE in FIG. 8) of suction nozzle 3 of the air conditioner according to Embodiment 3 of the present invention. In addition, about the same part as the said embodiment, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

  When the suction holes A-D (21a to 21d) are closed by the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d, it is preferable that the suction holes are completely sealed. If foreign matter adheres to the suction holes A-D (21a to 21d) and the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d are slightly lifted when they are closed, a suction leak occurs, and suction cleaning is performed. When one of the suction holes AD (21a to 21d) is open, the suction force at that portion is greatly reduced.

  In this embodiment, the suction leakage as described above does not occur. As shown in FIG. 10, the peripheral edges of the suction holes AD (21a to 21d) of the suction hole opening / closing plates 22a to 22d A sealing material 91 made of an elastic material is pasted on a portion in contact with.

  With the above configuration, as shown in FIG. 10 (a), even if foreign matter adheres to the suction holes AD (21a to 21d), as shown in FIG. 10 (b), the suction hole opening / closing plate 22a. When the sealing material 91 is closed at ~ 22d, the sealing material 91 is elastically deformed to close the gap, prevent the suction leakage, and ensure sufficient suction performance with the opened suction holes.

(Embodiment 4)
FIG. 11 is a schematic perspective view of the suction nozzle 3 of the air conditioner according to Embodiment 4 of the present invention. In addition, about the same part as the said embodiment, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

As described in the first embodiment, by opening all of the suction holes AD (21a to 21d), it is possible to flow an air volume necessary for room ventilation from the suction nozzle 3. In this case, in order to further increase the ventilation air volume, it is better to reduce the wind speed at each suction hole AD (21a to 21d) as much as possible. Therefore, the width of each suction hole AD (21a to 21d) is increased. It is better to widen the opening area. However, if the opening area is simply increased, the wind speed in the case of suction cleaning will be reduced, and the cleaning performance will be reduced. Therefore, in the present embodiment, each opening area of the suction holes AD (21a to 21d) can be adjusted during suction cleaning and ventilation.

  In FIG. 11, the total opening width of each suction hole AD (21a to 21d) is formed wider, for example, 10 mm. At the time of suction cleaning of the air filter 1, as shown in FIG. 11A, for example, the suction hole B21b is opened by only 3 mm with the suction hole opening / closing plate 22b (other suction holes A, C, D (21a, 21c , 21d) is also performed in the same manner). In this way, the suction performance can be improved by narrowing the suction air volume and increasing the wind speed.

  Next, when ventilation is performed by opening all of the suction holes AD (21a to 21d), the suction air speed is greatly reduced by fully opening the suction holes AD (21a to 21d) to a width of 10 mm. It will be. As a result, the ventilation resistance is greatly reduced, and a large ventilation air volume can be obtained without increasing the output of the suction device 6. Moreover, when the wind speed is lowered, the whistle sound generated in the suction holes AD (21a to 21d) is also lowered, which can be preferable for the ventilation mode used for a long time. In this way, it is possible to achieve both suction cleaning performance and ventilation performance.

  In the above embodiment, the specific movement mechanism of the suction nozzle 3 has not been described. For example, the elastic body that biases the suction nozzle 3 in one direction and the direction that resists the biasing force of the elastic body. The drawn wire or string is connected to the suction nozzle 3, and the suction nozzle 3 may be moved left and right by winding or loosening the wire or string with a drive motor. Alternatively, one of the guide rails 4 is formed by a long bolt, a nut that is screwed to the bolt is attached to the suction nozzle 3 side, and the bolt is rotated forward and reverse by a drive motor to move the suction nozzle 3 to the left and right. You may make it move to.

  As described above, the air conditioner according to the present invention can automatically suck and clean dust adhering to the air filter with a built-in extremely small and small output suction device. The present invention can also be applied to various blower devices having air filters, air cleaning devices, power supply devices, and the like.
