1 Claim.

The present invention relates to improvements in the art of air conditioning appliances and has for its principal object the provision of a complete conditioner that is very compact and attractive in appearance, and which may be installed within any room of a house or building.

Another advantage of the invention is that it is self-contained so that it may be readily moved from one location to another as the case may be I and without disturbing the same and being equally advantageous for the purpose.

With the foregoing in mind, it will become readily apparent that the invention possesses further advantages, all of which will be clearly revealed during the course of the following detailed description, illustrated throughout the accompanying drawings, and more fully pointed out in the appended claim.

With reference to the drawings:

Figure 1 is a reduced perspective view of the invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical section of the complete invention, and taken substantially through the center thereof.

Figure 3 is a top plan view with the top cover removed, exposing equal portions of the medicator and cloth-operating mechanism.

Figure 4 is a rear elevation of the invention with the sliding door removed and exposing the interior thereof.

Figure 5 is a side elevation with a portion of the side wall broken away exposing the clothoperating mechanism in maximum depressed position.

Figure 6 is a top plan view with the top cover and medicator removed showing the cloth-operating mechanism in a normal position.

The invention comprises a complete housing which may be composed of metal, wood, or of any suitable material for the purpose, and has front I, back 2, bottom 3, and sides 4, also removable top cover 5.

Referring more particularly to Figure 1 it is understood that opening 6 is provided in back 2 and hat vertically sliding door I is adapted to normally close said opening. In Figure 2 it is clear that electric motor A with fan B is provided and is mounted upon bottom 3 by brackets 8, which are clamped by elongated bolts 9 and are secured to said bottom by bolts I0, also lateral partition H is arranged where shown.

Metal tank I2 is provided and is positioned as indicated and is permanently supported to the housing by brackets l3. Disposed above tank I2 is the cloth-operating mechanism which comprises frame [4 of the formation as more ,par-

ticularly shown in Figure il, saidframe is piv- .otallysecured to the, housing as at 15 and is provided with crank [6' whereindicated] A series of cloths I! are provided and are suspended upon frame l4 in spaced apart relation, dcpending therefrom and the lower portion of said cloths are adapted to remain within tank 52.

Disposed directly above frame i2 is tray I8 which is secured to the housing by brackets 29 I and is adapted to contain a suitable medicator as at 20.

Top cover 5 is provided with spaced apart slats 2i and has porous cloth 22 secured to the bottom thereof. 15

The complete details of construction of the invention having been previously described, the exact manner in which the same operates and the advantages gained thereby follow:

The entire unit is placed in any room desirable 20 and is permanently fixed therein by any approved method, motor A is then plugged into the electric system through Wires C, tank I2 is filled with pure water. Medicator 20 maybe filled with any suitable chemical for purifying the air, 25 door I is then closed and any suitable switch (not shown) is turned on and with the motor in action fan B serves as a blower forcing the air in the direction of the arrows in Figure 2, and simultaneous with the upward pressure of the air 30 cloths I! are enveloped in the air and the lower portion of the cloths being submerged in the water in tank l2 the air will naturally absorb moisture or oxygen from the cloths consistent with the adjustment of the same by crank I6. 35 For example in Figure 2 the position of the cloths will provide maximum moisture, and if a lesser amount is desired the cloths may be manually elevated to the maximum position as shown in Figure 5. It is understood that any position of 40 cloths ll between the minimum and maximum oxygen-producing positions thereof will remain in that position and predetermined adjustment thus effecting a variable means for increasing or decreasing the oxygen as may be required. 45

Continuing with the air passing cloths ll, it then passes upwardly through medicator 20, and if no chemical for'the medicator is desired and if it is preferred to perfume the air as it is being conditioned, pine leaves or the like, or in 50 fact any substance rendering a desirable scent may be used for this accomplishment. Through medicator 20 it is obvious that the air passes through porous cloth 22 which serves as a filter,

thence through slatted top cover 5 and into the room. In Figure 2 it is clearly revealed that the air is permitted to circulate completely within the housing with no obstructive pockets.

The manner in which the device operates is as follows:

Tank I2 is first filled with pure water. By the use of crank l8 cloths H are elevated to the position as indicated in Figure 5, and by so doing, draft eifected by fan B of electric motor A is forced in the direction of the arrows in Figure 2, thus taking the moisture from partly saturated cloths ll upward and through medicator 20 thence through filter 22 and out into the room. The amount of moisture required may be governed by the position of cloths I! with respect to tank II. In other words, the more area of cloths I! being submerged into the water of tank II, the more moisture would be acquired, inasmuch as the draft passing over more heavily saturated cloths naturally would produce more moisture.

It is understood that all of the air entering the device is by means of passages 2 3.within bottom 3, and while two of such passages are shown, any number may be used-or a single passage if desired.

that s fully adequate to meet the present air a conditioning requirements.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new is:

In an air conditioner a complete housing, slower means disposed upon the inner bottom thereof nd directed upwardly therefrom, a wa 'ter tank disposed above said blower, a clothoperating mechanism comprising a frame pivotally secured to said housing and spaced upwardly from said tank, also a series of cloths spacedly secured to said frame, and the lower portion of said cloths submerged normally. within said tank, means for manually varying the extent of said cloths being submerged as aforesaid.

MONROE BUCK.
