Description

本発明は、洗濯・脱水と乾燥を同一回転槽内で行う洗濯乾燥機に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a washing / drying machine that performs washing / dehydration and drying in the same rotating tank.
従来のこの種の洗濯乾燥機について、図5を用いて説明する。図5に示すように、乾燥運転時は、回転ドラム41から排出された高温高湿の空気は、送風手段42により槽43の排気口44から出て除湿手段45に導かれる。除湿手段45により除湿された空気を加熱手段46で加熱し、再び、槽43の吸気口47より回転ドラム41内に供給される。このとき発生したリントは、除湿手段45の手前側の風路48に設けられたリントフィルタ49により捕獲される。   This type of conventional washing and drying machine will be described with reference to FIG. As shown in FIG. 5, during the drying operation, the high-temperature and high-humidity air discharged from the rotating drum 41 exits from the exhaust port 44 of the tank 43 by the air blowing means 42 and is guided to the dehumidifying means 45. The air dehumidified by the dehumidifying means 45 is heated by the heating means 46 and supplied again into the rotating drum 41 from the air inlet 47 of the tank 43. The lint generated at this time is captured by a lint filter 49 provided in the air passage 48 on the near side of the dehumidifying means 45.
また、従来の洗濯乾燥機における除湿手段45は、冷却水で直接水冷する方法、熱交換器により空冷する方法、またはヒートポンプ装置の凝縮器での熱交換、さらには、吸湿材による除湿方法がある。また、加熱手段としてはヒータによる直接加熱や、ヒートポンプ装置の蒸発器での熱交換等の方法がある。特に、吸湿材や熱交換器を使用する場合、細かい隙間を乾燥空気が通過するため、リント等のごみが目詰まりすることは避けなければならない。そのため、リントフィルタによりリントを捕獲し、リント等が乾燥風路を循環しないように構成している。また、リントフィルタへリント等が捕獲されることによりリントフィルタ自体が目詰まりお起こすため、リントフィルタは着脱自在にして、掃除できるようにしている。またリントフィルタを自動で掃除できる構成とし、リントフィルタの掃除を行わずにすむよう構成しているものもある(例えば、特許文献1参照)。

In addition, the dehumidifying means 45 in the conventional washing and drying machine includes a method of directly cooling with cooling water, a method of cooling with air using a heat exchanger, a heat exchange using a condenser of a heat pump device, and a dehumidifying method using a moisture absorbent. . Moreover, as a heating means, there are methods such as direct heating by a heater and heat exchange in an evaporator of a heat pump device. In particular, when using a hygroscopic material or a heat exchanger, dry air passes through fine gaps, so clogging of lint and other debris must be avoided. Therefore, the lint is captured by the lint filter so that the lint does not circulate through the dry air path. In addition, since the lint filter itself is clogged when the lint is captured by the lint filter, the lint filter is detachable so that it can be cleaned. In addition, there is a configuration in which the lint filter can be automatically cleaned and the lint filter is not required to be cleaned (for example, see Patent Document 1).
JP 2006-102346 A
しかしながら、リントフィルタ部は乾燥用空気の風路内に構成されるため、乾燥空気の風量に大きな影響を与え、この構成次第で乾燥性能にも大きな影響を与えるものである。特許文献1に記載の構成のように、リントフィルタで捕獲したリントを排出手段により掃除する構成とし、リントの捕獲での目詰まりによる風量低下を少なくし、さらにリントを回収し、一旦保留できる構成となっている。しかし、保留されるリントは綿状であり、保留容積を大きくとらなければ、比較的頻繁に保留されたリントを外部に排出する必要があった。また、保留部からの取り出し時にはリントが手に触れ、外部へ飛散してしまうことが考えられる。さらに、保留部のリントの保留がいっぱいになると、フィルタ部にリントがつまり、逆に大きな抵抗となってしまうことも起こる。   However, since the lint filter unit is configured in the air passage of the drying air, the lint filter unit greatly affects the air volume of the drying air, and depending on this configuration, it greatly affects the drying performance. As in the configuration described in Patent Document 1, the configuration is such that the lint captured by the lint filter is cleaned by the discharging means, the air volume drop due to clogging in the capture of lint is reduced, and the lint is recovered and temporarily retained It has become. However, the lint to be retained is flocculent, and it is necessary to discharge the retained lint to the outside relatively frequently unless the retained volume is increased. In addition, it is conceivable that the lint touches the hand when it is taken out from the holding unit and is scattered outside. Furthermore, when the lending of the holding part is full, the filter part may be linted, that is, a large resistance may occur.
本発明は、上記従来の課題を解決するもので、リントフィルタに捕獲されたリントの回収量を増やし、排出頻度を少なくすることを目的としている。   The present invention solves the above-described conventional problems, and aims to increase the collection amount of lint captured by a lint filter and reduce the discharge frequency.
上記従来の課題を解決するために、本発明の洗濯乾燥機は、リントを捕獲するフィルタ部と、前記フィルタ部に捕獲されたリントを回収するリント回収部と、前記フィルタ部に捕獲されたリントを前記リント回収部に排出する排出手段とを備え、風路を循環する空気の一部を前記リント回収部を通して前記フィルタ部の下流側の前記風路へ流れるようにしたものである。   In order to solve the above-described conventional problems, a washing and drying machine according to the present invention includes a filter unit that captures lint, a lint collection unit that collects lint captured by the filter unit, and lint captured by the filter unit. And a discharge means for discharging the air to the lint collecting part, and a part of the air circulating through the air path flows through the lint collecting part to the air path on the downstream side of the filter part.
これにより、乾燥用空気の一部がリント回収部内を流れ、リント回収部に溜まったリントが圧縮されてカサを少なくすることができるため、リント回収部に貯めるリント量が多くなり、リントを廃棄する回数を減らすことができる。   As a result, part of the drying air flows through the lint collection unit, and the lint collected in the lint collection unit can be compressed to reduce the mass, so the amount of lint stored in the lint collection unit increases and the lint is discarded. Can be reduced.
本発明の洗濯乾燥機は、捕獲したリントの容積を減らして貯蔵量を増すことができ、リントの排出頻度を少なくすることができる。   The washing / drying machine of the present invention can reduce the volume of the captured lint to increase the storage amount, and can reduce the discharge frequency of lint.
第1の発明は、槽内に回転自在に設けられた回転ドラムと、前記回転ドラム内に収容した衣類の乾燥を行うための空気を循環させる風路と、前記風路に送風する送風手段と、乾燥用空気を加熱する加熱手段または除湿する除湿手段と、衣類より発生するリントを捕獲するフィルタ部と、前記フィルタ部に捕獲されたリントを回収するリント回収部と、前記フィルタ部に捕獲されたリントを前記リント回収部に排出する排出手段とを備え、前記風路を循環する空気の一部を前記リント回収部を通して前記フィルタ部の下流側の前記風路へ流れるようにしたことにより、風路を流れる乾燥用空気の一部がバイパスしてリント回収部内を通って、略半円筒状フィルタ部の下流側へと流れる。この空気の流れにより、リント回収部に溜まったリントが圧縮され、カサを少なくすることができるため、リント回収部に貯めるリント量が多くなり、リントを廃棄する回数を大幅に減らすことができるとともに、リントが圧縮された形で溜まるため、廃棄時に飛散し、床を汚すという心配もなくなる。   A first aspect of the present invention is a rotary drum that is rotatably provided in a tank, an air passage that circulates air for drying clothes stored in the rotary drum, and an air blowing means that blows air to the air passage. A heating means for heating the drying air or a dehumidifying means for dehumidifying, a filter section for capturing lint generated from clothing, a lint collection section for collecting lint captured by the filter section, and a filter section A discharge means for discharging the lint to the lint collection part, and a part of the air circulating through the air path flows through the lint collection part to the air path on the downstream side of the filter part, A part of the drying air flowing through the air passage bypasses the inside of the lint collecting part and flows to the downstream side of the substantially semi-cylindrical filter part. This flow of air compresses the lint collected in the lint collection unit and reduces the amount of waste, so the amount of lint stored in the lint collection unit increases, and the number of times that lint is discarded can be greatly reduced. Because lint accumulates in a compressed form, there is no need to worry about splashing when it is discarded and soiling the floor.
第2の発明は、特に、第1の発明のフィルタ部は、風路を循環する循環空気の送風方向にほぼ直交した略半円筒状フィルタを有し、排出手段は、前記略半円筒状フィルタのリント捕獲面に内接して回転するらせん状の線材で構成したことにより、フィルタを通過する空気の流れがフィルタ通過の前後で同一方向とすることができ、フィルタ部での圧力損失を少なくすることができるとともに、リントの捕獲面積を平面フィルタより大きくとることができる。また、らせん状の線材を回動させることにより、フィルタ面に捕獲したリントをリント回収部へ押し出して除去することができるとともに、風路を流れる空気抵抗を生じさせることなく排出手段を風路内に構成することができる。   In the second invention, in particular, the filter portion of the first invention has a substantially semi-cylindrical filter substantially orthogonal to the blowing direction of the circulating air circulating in the air passage, and the discharge means is the substantially semi-cylindrical filter. Since the spiral wire rod that is inscribed in the lint capture surface is rotated, the flow of air passing through the filter can be in the same direction before and after passing through the filter, thereby reducing pressure loss at the filter section. In addition, the lint capture area can be larger than that of the planar filter. In addition, by rotating the spiral wire rod, the lint captured on the filter surface can be pushed out to the lint collection section and removed, and the discharge means can be installed in the air passage without causing air resistance flowing through the air passage. Can be configured.
第3の発明は、特に、第1または第2の発明のリント回収部は、フィルタ部側へのリントの逆流を防止する逆止弁を設けたことにより、排出手段によりリント回収部に収納されたリントがフィルタ部に逆流するのを防止することができる。   In the third aspect of the invention, in particular, the lint recovery part of the first or second aspect of the invention is housed in the lint recovery part by the discharge means by providing a check valve for preventing the back flow of the lint to the filter part side. It is possible to prevent the lint from flowing back to the filter unit.
第4の発明は、特に、第1〜第3のいずれか1つの発明のリント回収部は、機外に取り外し可能に設けたリント回収箱に設けたことにより、リントを廃棄する場合にリントに触ることなく、リント回収箱を本体外へ取り外して直接ゴミ箱等へ捨てることができ、手や床を汚すことなくリントを廃棄することができる。   In the fourth aspect of the invention, in particular, the lint collection part of any one of the first to third aspects of the invention is provided in a lint collection box that is detachably provided outside the machine, so that lint is disposed when discarding lint. Without touching the lint collection box, the lint collection box can be removed from the main body and directly thrown into a trash can, and lint can be discarded without soiling the hands or floor.
第5の発明は、特に、第4の発明のリント回収箱は、一部を洗濯乾燥機の外面に位置させてリント回収部を透視可能に設けたことにより、外部よりリントの溜まっている状態が確認でき、リントの溜まりすぎによる乾燥空気の風量の低下を未然に防止することができる。   In the fifth aspect of the invention, in particular, the lint collection box of the fourth aspect of the present invention is a state in which lint is accumulated from the outside by providing part of the lint collection box so that the lint collection part can be seen through. Can be confirmed, and a decrease in the air volume of the dry air due to excessive lint accumulation can be prevented in advance.
第6の発明は、特に、第1〜第5のいずれか1つの発明のリント回収部は、洗濯乾燥機の外面に開閉可能な常閉の装着部を設け、前記装着部に掃除機のホースを挿入可能に設けたことにより、リント回収部に溜まったリントを掃除機の吸引力を利用して簡単かつ清潔に回収することができる。   According to a sixth aspect of the invention, in particular, the lint collection part of any one of the first to fifth aspects is provided with a normally closed mounting part that can be opened and closed on the outer surface of the washing and drying machine, and the mounting part has a hose for a vacuum cleaner. By being provided so that the lint can be inserted, the lint accumulated in the lint collection part can be easily and cleanly collected using the suction force of the vacuum cleaner.
以下、本発明の実施の形態について、図面を参照しながら説明する。なお、この実施の形態によって本発明が限定されるものではない。   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 cross-sectional view of a main part of a washing / drying machine according to a first embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 1, a rotary drum 3 for storing clothes 2 is provided inside a tub 1 of a washing and drying machine, and is rotated by a drive motor 4 fixed to the tub 1. The tank 1 is supported by a bottom damper 6 on the main body 5 of the washing and drying machine. The clothes 2 accommodated in the rotating drum 3 can be taken in and out by opening the door 7. An opening 8 is provided above the tank 1, and an air passage 9 for drying air communicating with the opening 8 is connected to the rear opening 10 of the tank 1. Further, in the middle of the air passage 9, a filter unit 11 that captures lint generated from the clothes 2 during drying, a dehumidifying unit 12 for drying air, a blowing unit 13 for circulating the drying air, and heating for heating the drying air A device 14 is configured. Moreover, an opening 15 is provided on the drive motor 4 side of the rotary drum 3, and a circulation path of dry air into the rotary drum 3 is configured.
図2は前記フィルタ部11のA−A断面図である。図2において、風路9内に送風方向にほぼ直角に略半円筒状フィルタ16が構成され、略半円筒状フィルタ16の上流側、すなわち、リントの捕獲面側の内面に沿って可動する排出手段17が設けられ、排出手段17は、駆動装置18により、略半円筒状フィルタ16内面に沿ってらせん状の線材19が回転するように構成されている。また、略半円筒状フィルタ16に隣接し、排出手段17のらせん状の線材19先端には、排出されるリントを貯留するリント回収部20が構成されている。   FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view of the filter unit 11 taken along the line AA. In FIG. 2, a substantially semi-cylindrical filter 16 is formed in the air passage 9 substantially perpendicular to the air blowing direction, and is movable along the upstream side of the substantially semi-cylindrical filter 16, that is, along the inner surface of the lint capturing surface. Means 17 are provided, and the discharge means 17 is configured such that the helical wire 19 rotates along the inner surface of the substantially semi-cylindrical filter 16 by the driving device 18. In addition, a lint collection unit 20 that stores lint to be discharged is formed at the tip of the spiral wire rod 19 of the discharge unit 17 adjacent to the substantially semi-cylindrical filter 16.
リント回収部20は、リントを貯留するリント回収箱21と、リント回収箱21を収納し排出手段17とつながる枠体22とで構成され、枠体22の一部は本体5の外面に臨ませた開口部23につながり、リント回収箱21が着脱できるようになっている。また、リント回収箱21には開口部21aが設けられ、外部へ取出したときに、この開口部21aよりリント回収部20に溜まったリントを捨てることができ、常時は閉じられている。   The lint collection unit 20 includes a lint collection box 21 that stores lint, and a frame body 22 that houses the lint collection box 21 and is connected to the discharge unit 17. A part of the frame body 22 faces the outer surface of the main body 5. The lint collection box 21 can be attached and detached. The lint collection box 21 is provided with an opening 21a. When the lint collection box 21 is taken outside, the lint collected in the lint collection unit 20 can be discarded from the opening 21a and is always closed.
また、リント回収箱21の底部にはフィルタ21cを配設した開口部21bが設けてあり、本体5への装着時に、リント回収箱21に設けた開口部21bと対向して枠体22に開口部22aを設けている。開口部22aは連通路24によりフィルタ部11の下流側の風路9と連通させている。   Further, an opening 21b provided with a filter 21c is provided at the bottom of the lint collection box 21. When the lint collection box 21 is attached to the main body 5, the opening 21b is opposed to the opening 21b provided in the lint collection box 21. A portion 22a is provided. The opening 22 a communicates with the air passage 9 on the downstream side of the filter unit 11 through the communication path 24.
上記構成において、その動作、作用を説明する。本発明の洗濯乾燥機の乾燥時において、乾燥を開始すると回転ドラム3が駆動モータ4により回転し、衣類2が撹拌される。同時に乾燥空気循環用の送風手段13が運転され、加熱装置14にも通電される。乾燥空気は回転ドラム3内の衣類2から水分を奪い、湿った状態となって槽1の開口部8より出てフィルタ部11を通過し、空気中に混在するリント等を捕獲する。さらに除湿手段12により乾燥空気中の水分を除去し、加熱装置14により加熱され相対湿度の低下した乾燥空気を槽1の後部に設けた後部開口部10より、回転ドラム3の開口部15を通過して回転ドラム3内に循環するようになっている。   The operation and action of the above configuration will be described. At the time of drying of the washing / drying machine of the present invention, when drying is started, the rotary drum 3 is rotated by the drive motor 4 and the clothes 2 are agitated. At the same time, the blowing means 13 for circulating the dry air is operated, and the heating device 14 is also energized. The dry air removes moisture from the clothes 2 in the rotating drum 3, gets wet, exits from the opening 8 of the tank 1, passes through the filter unit 11, and captures lint and the like mixed in the air. Further, the moisture in the dry air is removed by the dehumidifying means 12, and the dry air heated by the heating device 14 and having a reduced relative humidity passes through the opening 15 of the rotating drum 3 from the rear opening 10 provided at the rear of the tank 1. Then, it circulates in the rotating drum 3.
除湿手段12は、水冷や空冷により熱交換器を設けて除湿する構成のほか、ヒートポンプ方式により冷媒の蒸発潜熱で除湿する構成、また、吸湿材等を用いて直接除湿する構成等々がある。加熱装置14は、ヒータによる直接加熱や、ヒートポンプ方式の冷媒凝縮熱を利用した構成がある。   The dehumidifying means 12 has a configuration in which a heat exchanger is provided by water cooling or air cooling to dehumidify, a configuration in which moisture is dehumidified by the latent heat of vaporization of the refrigerant by a heat pump method, a configuration in which dehumidification is performed directly using a hygroscopic material, and the like. The heating device 14 has a configuration using direct heating by a heater or heat pump type refrigerant condensation heat.
また、送風手段13とフィルタ部11は、乾燥用空気が循環する風路9内のどの位置にあってもかまわない。このように乾燥空気を循環させ、回転ドラム3内の衣類2を撹拌させながら、衣類2より水分を奪い、衣類2を乾燥させていくものである。   Further, the air blowing means 13 and the filter unit 11 may be located at any position in the air passage 9 through which the drying air circulates. In this way, while drying air is circulated and the clothes 2 in the rotating drum 3 are stirred, moisture is taken away from the clothes 2 and the clothes 2 are dried.
このとき、フィルタ部11では、衣類2の進行により発生する、糸くず等のリントを略円筒状フィルタ16で捕獲し、下流側に構成された除湿手段12の熱交換器や、加熱装置14にリントが付着し、目詰まりを起こして風量が低下したり、加熱面への付着を防止することができる。   At this time, in the filter unit 11, lint such as lint generated by the progress of the clothing 2 is captured by the substantially cylindrical filter 16, and is transferred to the heat exchanger of the dehumidifying means 12 configured on the downstream side or the heating device 14. The lint adheres, clogging occurs and the air volume can be reduced, or adhesion to the heating surface can be prevented.
図2に示すように、乾燥前、乾燥中または乾燥終了後のどの時点でもかまわないが、適宜、駆動装置18を運転し、らせん状線材19等で構成された排出手段17を動作させることにより、略円筒状フィルタ16の内面に付着したリントをリント回収部20側へ押し出し、リント回収箱21に貯留するようになっている。   As shown in FIG. 2, it does not matter at any time before drying, during drying, or after completion of drying, but by appropriately operating the driving device 18 and operating the discharging means 17 composed of the helical wire 19 or the like. The lint adhering to the inner surface of the substantially cylindrical filter 16 is pushed out toward the lint collection unit 20 and stored in the lint collection box 21.
前述したように乾燥空気の風量は、衣類2の乾燥性能に大きく影響するため、風路9内の圧損をできるだけ少なくする構成が望ましい。本発明のフィルタ部11は、風路9の風の流れにほぼ直角に略円筒状フィルタ16を構成しているため、風路9の曲がり等による圧力損失が全くない。また、排出手段17の運転により、フィルタ面からリントを排出し、フィルタ部11の圧力損失の低下を防止できるため、初期の乾燥性能を安定して維持することができる。   As described above, since the air volume of the dry air greatly affects the drying performance of the garment 2, it is desirable to reduce the pressure loss in the air passage 9 as much as possible. Since the filter unit 11 of the present invention forms the substantially cylindrical filter 16 substantially perpendicular to the wind flow in the air passage 9, there is no pressure loss due to bending of the air passage 9 or the like. Further, since the lint is discharged from the filter surface by the operation of the discharge means 17 and the pressure loss of the filter unit 11 can be prevented from being lowered, the initial drying performance can be stably maintained.
また、乾燥空気の一部がリント回収箱21、フィルタ21c、枠体22の開口部22a、連通路24を通過して、フィルタ部11の下流側の風路9に流れる。この乾燥用空気の流れにより、リント回収箱21に貯留しているリントが圧縮されて容積を小さくすることができる。これにより、貯留するリントの回収量を大幅に増やし、廃棄の回数を極力減らすことが可能となる。   Further, a part of the dry air passes through the lint collection box 21, the filter 21 c, the opening 22 a of the frame body 22, and the communication path 24, and flows into the air path 9 on the downstream side of the filter unit 11. By this flow of drying air, the lint stored in the lint collection box 21 is compressed and the volume can be reduced. As a result, the amount of lint stored can be greatly increased, and the number of times of disposal can be reduced as much as possible.
(実施の形態2)
図3は実施の形態2におけるフィルタ部の部分断面図である。図3において、略半円筒状フィルタ16内面に内接して回転するらせん状の線材19で構成し、前記排出手段17とリント回収部20の連結部には逆止弁25を設けている。これにより、一度排出手段17により、リント回収箱21に収納されたリントがいっぱいとなりあふれ出して逆流しないようにしたものである。

FIG. 3 is a partial cross-sectional view of the filter portion in the second embodiment. In FIG. 3, a spiral wire rod 19 is rotated in contact with the inner surface of the substantially semi-cylindrical filter 16, and a check valve 25 is provided at a connecting portion between the discharging means 17 and the lint collecting portion 20. As a result, the discharge means 17 once fills up the lint stored in the lint collection box 21 so that it does not overflow and flow backward.
(実施の形態3)
図2に示すように、リント回収部20は排出手段17と連通する枠体22と洗濯乾燥機の外部に着脱自在なリント回収箱21よりなり、リントを廃棄する場合、リントに触らず、リント回収箱21を本体5から取り外し、直接ゴミ箱等へ捨てることができ、手を汚したり、床を汚したりすることを防止できるものである。
(Embodiment 3)
As shown in FIG. 2, the lint collection unit 20 includes a frame 22 communicating with the discharging means 17 and a lint collection box 21 that is detachable from the outside of the washing and drying machine. When the lint is discarded, the lint is not touched. The collection box 21 can be removed from the main body 5 and directly discarded into a trash box or the like, and it is possible to prevent the hands from getting dirty or the floor from getting dirty.
(実施の形態4)
図2に示すように、リント回収箱21は一部を洗濯乾燥機の外面に位置させ、透明材料で構成し、外部よりリントの溜まっている状態を確認できるようにしている。このため、リントが溜まりすぎ、フィルタ部11から掃除したリントの排出ができなくなり、乾燥空気の風量が低下し乾燥性能が低下することを防止できるものである。
(Embodiment 4)
As shown in FIG. 2, a part of the lint collection box 21 is located on the outer surface of the washing / drying machine and is made of a transparent material so that the state where lint is accumulated can be confirmed from the outside. For this reason, lint accumulates too much, the lint cleaned from the filter part 11 cannot be discharged | emitted, and it can prevent that the air volume of dry air falls and drying performance falls.
(実施の形態5)
図4は実施の形態5におけるリント回収部の部分断面図である。図4において、リント回収部20には洗濯乾燥機の外部より、掃除機のホースの装着が可能で、装着により開閉可能な装着部26を設け、リント回収部20に貯留したリントを掃除機の吸引力を利用して簡単に回収できるため、手や床を汚し、リントが飛散してしますことを防止できるものである。
