【実施例】図1は、本発明による超音波手洗機の実施例を示すもので、11は図示してない発振器に接続された超音波振動子、12は超音波振動子11のコーン13に結合されたステンレスなどからなる円柱状のホーンで、 DETAILED DESCRIPTION FIG. 1 shows an embodiment of an ultrasonic handwashing machine according to the present invention, 11 ultrasonic transducer which is connected to the not shown oscillator 12 is the cone 13 of the ultrasonic transducer 11 in cylindrical horn made of bonded stainless,
このホーン12は上下方向に振動する。 The horn 12 vibrates in the vertical direction. 14はホーン1 14 Horn 1
2の下方先端部を覆うように設けられたカップ状のカバーで、このカバー14の側面には洗浄水を供給する給水口15が、また下部には洗浄水を流出させる流出口16 A cup-shaped cover provided so as to cover the second lower tip, the water supply port 15 for supplying washing water to the side of the cover 14, also the outlet to the outflow washing water in the lower portion 16
がそれぞれ設けられている。 There has been provided, respectively. 17は洗浄水の流し台でその底面には洗浄水の排出口18が設けられている。 17 outlet 18 of the washing water is provided at the bottom with a sink of the washing water. 前述したカバー14のホーン12への取付けは、例えば図2 Attachment to the horn 12 of the cover 14 described above, for example 2
に示すように、円柱状のホーン14の中間部に円盤状のフランジ21が設けられており、このフランジ21にカバー14の上部開口部に設けてある鍔部22を、ゴムなどの弾性材料からなるリング状のパッキング23を介してボルト24とナット25で固定する。 As shown in the middle portion of the cylindrical horn 14 disk-shaped flange 21 is provided, the flange portion 22 to the flange 21 is provided on the upper opening of the cover 14, an elastic material such as rubber through a ring-shaped packing 23 made of bolting 24 and a nut 25. なお、26は緩み防止用のスプリングワッシャーである。 Incidentally, 26 is a spring washer for preventing loosening.

【0006】本発明の試験の一例としてホーン12の大きさを、上下方向の長さを100mm程度、先端部直径を20mm程度とし、超音波振動子11のパワーを200W [0006] The size of the horn 12 as an example of a test of the present invention, the order of 100mm and the length in the vertical direction, the tip diameter is about 20 mm, the power of the ultrasonic vibrator 11 200 W
とした場合、ホーン12とカバー14との間隙は、側面部では5〜10mm程度、下部では5mm程度が好適である。 If the gap between the horn 12 and the cover 14, the side portions about 5 to 10 mm, the lower is preferably about 5 mm. 特に下部の間隙を大きくすると超音波による振動が減衰するため、間隙は狭い方が効果的である。 Especially for an increase in the lower portion of the gap with ultrasonic vibration is attenuated, the gap is narrower effective. また、超音波振動子11の周波数は20〜40kHz程度が好適である。 The frequency of the ultrasonic vibrator 11 is preferably about 20 to 40 kHz. 周波数を下げると雑音として耳障りになり、周波数を上げると振動が細かく汚れが落ち難くなるという問題があるためである。 Becomes harsh as noise lower frequency and there is a problem that vibration raising the frequency is hardly fallen fine dirt. 前述した各部の寸法は一例であり、ホーン12の大きさや超音波振動子11のパワーを変えることにより、それらの寸法は適宜選定することができる。 The dimensions of the above-described respective units is an example, by varying the power of the size and the ultrasonic transducer 11 of the horn 12, their dimensions can be appropriately selected.

【0007】この超音波手洗機は、洗浄時に図示していないスイッチを入れることにより洗浄水がカバー14の給水口15に供給されると共に、超音波振動子11を図示していない発振器により振動させ、カバー14の洗浄水流出口16から超音波が加わった(乗った)洗浄水が流出し、この超音波洗浄水により手などを洗うものである。 [0007] The ultrasonic wash machine, with wash water by placing the switch (not shown) during cleaning is supplied to the water supply port 15 of the cover 14, is vibrated by an oscillator (not shown) to the ultrasonic transducer 11 were joined by ultrasonic waves from the cleaning water outlet 16 of the cover 14 (riding) washing water flows, in which washing hands by the ultrasonic cleaning water. なお、本実施例では洗浄液を洗浄水として説明したが、適温の湯や、消毒液を使用することにより、更に洗浄効果を高めるようにすることができる。 In the present embodiment it has been described a cleaning liquid as the cleaning water, hot water or a suitable temperature, by using a disinfectant, can be made to further enhance the cleaning effect.
