  • DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
  • Referring to FIG. 1, the present invention is composed of a hood ([0022] 11) with a inhale plate (13) installed obliquely on the bottom, a inhale hole (14) is on the inhale plate (13), several upper fixing slot (151) and lower fixing slot (152) are on top and bottom of the inhale plate (13), a grease pipe (153) connects to the lower fixing slot (152). An exhaust motor (12) is inside the hood (11), the exhaust motor (12) connects to a duct (122), the duct (122) faces the inhale hole (14), a exhaust duct (16) is on top of the exhaust motor (12), a motor grease pipe (121) is beneath the exhaust motor (12);
  • a grease filter ([0023] 20), as shown in 2A to 3D, is behind the inhale hole (14), the grease filter (20) further consists of a rectangular curve frame (21) with an air conducting cover (22), several filter layer (23)(24) and a back net (25); the air conducting cover (22) is made of a thin metal plate with many inlet hole (221) bent inward; the filter layer (23)(24) are made of metal plate in wave shape, the wave directions of the filter layer (23)(24) are vertical to each other; the back net (25) is made of steel plate. Two fixed tenon (26) are on the bottom of the rectangular curve frame (21) to insert into the lower fixing slot (152), a handle (27) and two moveable tenon (271) are on top of the rectangular curve frame (21), the two moveable tenon (271) are inserted into the upper fixing slot (151); the upper fixing slot (151) is above the lower fixing slot (152), when the grease filter (20) is installed on the inhale hole (14), the grease filter (20) bends inward;
  • an air re-flow system is to have an air-returning channel ([0024] 31) on the back of the hood (11), the top of the air-returning channel (31) links to the exhaust duct (16), the bottom of the air-returning channel (31) forms at least one ventilator (311) on the inhale plate (13); an air-returning motor (32) is inside the air-returning channel (31) to control the air flow direction; an air-returning grease filter (33) is installed obliquely on top of the air-returning motor (32) for grease to flow down, an air-returning grease pipe (34) is installed on the bottom of the air-returning grease filter (33);
  • a grease container ([0025] 41) is on the back of the bottom of the hood (11), the grease container (41) gathers grease from the motor grease pipe (121), the grease pipe (153) and the air-returning grease pipe (34).
  • The function and the operation of the present invention are described below: [0026]
  • when users turn on exhaust motor ([0027] 12), the smoke is inhaled from the inhale hole (14) and expelled out from the exhaust duct (16). The grease flows through the grease filter (20) and stays on the filter layer (23)(24); after a period of time and by gravity, the grease drips to the air conducting cover (22), the grease filter (20) is in a curve shape and bent inward, the grease flows from the inlet hole (221) to the bottom of the grease filter (20) and passes through the grease pipe (153) to the grease container (41), the grease will not drip from the grease filter (20) directly into cooking utensils. The filter layer (23)(24) offer larger plane to gather grease, the vertical wave structure of the filter layer (23)(24) gives better filter effect.
  • Referring to FIG. 4, the running direction of the air-returning motor ([0028] 32) can be controlled by a circuitry; when the warm smoke contains grease in the exhaust duct (16), the air-returning motor (32) turns clockwise to exhaust hot air from the exhaust duct (16); the air passes through the air-returning grease filter (33) becomes clean without grease and expels from the ventilator (311), an air curtain is generated on the wall surface that is on the back of the main body (10) to block the grease from the wall for cleaner wall. Since the air is warm and can flow up, the smoke with grease is brought up for better ventilation cleaning efficiency. To the users in colder areas, the recycled warm air can achieve energy saving function.
  • Referring to FIG. 5, the air-returning motor ([0029] 32) can run reversely and in synchronously with the exhaust motor (12) to have the smoke air inhale by the inhale hole (14) and the ventilator (311) at the same time, such scheme can speed up the expulsion of larger quantity of smoke air; when the smoke air is light, the air-returning motor (32) can switch to run clockwise for air-returning function.
  • While a preferred embodiment of the invention has been shown and described in detail, it will be readily understood and appreciated that numerous omissions, changes and additions may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. [0030]
