GARMENT DEODORIZER.

Application filed October 28, 1927 This invention relates to an improved apparatus for deodorizing garments, and wearing apparel, the same being particularly adapted to use in dry cleaning establishments, steam laundries and the like, and being herein referred to as a garment deodorizer.

The present application is a continuation in part of an application for a garment deodorizer filed by me under date of February 27, 1926, such designated by Serial No. 91,281, and allowed under date of April 7, 1927.

Briefly, the invention comprises an especially designed cabinet in'which the garments are suspended, this cabinet being provided at its top with a novel hot air intake and distributing device, and being provided at its bottom with vacuum producing and air discharging means.

Located in a desirablerelationship to the cabinet is a heater, of any kind, which serves to heat and deliver hot air to the cabinet, and

manifold and air discharge means.

be discharged at the bottom. "This arrangement permits the hot air to dry the vapors in the garments, and produce somewhat of a vacuum to not only dry the garment thoroughly, but to removeall objectionable odors.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following description and drawings.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a view in elevationand section showing the front'of the cabinet, and the hot air heater which is associated with the cabinet and located on one side thereof.

Fig. 2 is a rear view showing the air discharge manifold in section and elevation.

Fig. 3 is a vertical section through thecab- 'inet and air intake means at'its top.

Fig. 4 is also a vertical section through the same structure, the view-being at right angles to Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a horizontal section through the bottom portion of the cabinet just above a screen located in the cabinet.

Referring now to the drawings, by numerals, it will be observed that the reference character 6 designates generally the cabinet. This is in the form of a sheet metal housing,

mounted on the cabinet is a draft producing Serial No. 229,489.

whose body portion 7 is substantially rectangular 111 cross section, the same having a flat main bottom 8, and an especially dei signed top 9.

what rectangular casing 11 with which a hot air supply pipe 12 is connected.

Located in the casing as shown better in Fig. 3, are baffles 13, located-in opposed and spaced relations, and an intervening substantially V-shapd baffle plate is. The relationship of these baffles is such as to provide a tortuous passage for the incoming air, causing the air to separate and to be distributed uniformly in the manner designated by the arrows.

Closelyallied to the air intake device just described, is a hot air supp-1y means which comprises a heater 15 of any construction. I have shown an oil burning heater here in the drawings, but it'i's to be understood that any other suitable source of heat such as electricity, steam, or equivalent means may be provided in practice.

In this connection, it will be noticed that it either is provided with a suitable flue 16 and that the aforesaid pipe 12 extends down along one side of the cabinet, and is connected to the top of the heater, the heater being constructed to cause the hot air to flow upwardly through the pipes 1'2 and into the intake casing 11 where it passes into the cabinet through the opening 10.

Referring now to the bottom portion of the cabinet, it will be observed that a false bottom is provided, this false bottom being composed of a pair of duplicate plates 17 disposedin downwardly converging relationship in the bottom of the cabinet and spaced above the main bottom 8. Their adjacent edges are spaced apart as at 18 to provide a discharge for the odor laden air,

Associated with the false bottom and located above the plate portions thereof is a strainer or screen 19. Also, formed in'the rear wall of the cabinet is an elongated discharge slot 20 communicating with the lower restricted end portion of an exhaust manifold 21. Referring to Fig. 2, it will be ob- 7 served that this manifold is mounted on the rear wall and gradually tapers upwardly and extends above the apex portion of the roof or top of the cabinet where it is connected with a housing 22 in which a suitable fan is located. Incidentally this fan is driven from an electric motor or other equivalent means 7 (not shown) Naturally, when the fan is in operation, it serves to'produee a draft up through the manifold 21 and to suck up the odor laden air and mixture through the ejector pipe 23.

In practice, the cabinet is provided 'ith suitthe roof of the cabinet. Here it will take the course indicated substantially by the arrows being thus retarded in. velocity and distributed, so that it will flow evenly down against the inside surfaces of the inclined roof. Uniformity of action is therefore assured.

The draft is set up by the fan, in the manifold 21 and serves to producea suction within the cabinet, this suction acting upon the hot air in the top and drawing it downwardly as shown in Fig. 4, where the hot air acts upon the garment, to deodorize the same in an obvious manner.

The odor-laden air is drawn upwardly thru the manifold'and discharged out through the pipe 23. The apparatus is distinct in that it is characterized by new means for introducing the fresh hot air in a uniform manner at the apex portion of the gable-shaped roof.

It is further rendered individual by the utilization of the manifold, which is such as to provide the proper type of a draft to insure a proper circulation of the hot air downwardly. Thehot air serves to evaporate the va porous cleaning fluids in the garment, thus drying the garment and completely deodorizing the same. V

The formation of the roof is such as to provide a. correct pitch to aid in the circulation of the'air. In addition, the construction of the special false bottom, comprising the inclined plates makes for a proper discharge and proper formation for effectively deodorizing the garments.

These and other advantages and features of the invention have doubtless been madcapparent from the description and drawings.

thought unnecessary.

Therefore, a more lengthy description is Having thus described my invention, what 1 claim as new is::- i

1. In a deodorizing apparatus of the class described, a garment receiving cabinet provided with a false bottom spaced from the main bottom and having a'depressed central portion equipped with an opening, a screen overlying said false bottom,a manifold carried by said cabinet and connected with the space existingbetween the false bottom and the main bottom, said manifold being comparatively wide at its bottom and gradually decreasing in width toward the top and merging into suction fan housing, a fan rotatable in said fan housing, means in said cabinet for supporting garments, and means for supplying hot .air to said cabinet to be drawn downwardly through thesame, through the opening in said false bottom, and into said manifold. p

2. In a. garment deodorizer of the class described, a vertically elongated cabinet constructed for the reception of garments, said cabinet having a gable-like top whose apex portion is truncated to provide an .air intake opening, means for creating a suction at the bottom of the cabinet, and means for introducing hot .air through said intake opening at the top of the cabinet, said second named means comprising a casing supported on said cabinet top over the intake opening and including internal bafiies arranged in staggered vertically spaced relation to provide for a tortuous downwardpassageof air, and a hot air supply pipe connected with said casing on one side. V

' In .a deodorizer of the class described, a vertically elongated cabinet adapted for reception of the garments to be treated, said cabinet having agable-shaped top whose apex portion is truncated to provide anair intake and having a flat bottom, .a. false bottom in said cabinet spaced upwardly from the main bottom, and including a discharge opening, a

'screensupported in the cabinet over thefalse bottom, an upwardly tapered manifold sup- .ported on the exterior of one Wall of the cabinet and of a height substantially commensurate with the height of said cabinet and in communication with the lower end portion of the cabinet, a fan at the top of said manifold for creating an upward draft through "said manifold, hot air intake and distributing means mounted on the top of the cabinet and r in communication ,withsaid intake opening and a supply pipe connected with one side of a partof said means. p

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
