AUXILIARY VAPOR GENERATING ATTACHMENT FOR THERAPEUTIC VAPOR OR GAS PRODUCING MACHINES Filed.April 17, 1947 INVENTOR. Marc Ease/f H6 2 JMYQM Patented Dec. 26, 1950 AUXILIARY VAPOR GENERATING ATTACH- MENT FOR THERAPEUTIC VAPOR OR GA PRODUCING MACHINES Marc Resek, Cleveland Heights, hio, assignor to Perfection Stove Company, Cleveland, Ohio, a
corporation of Ohio Application April 17, 1947, Serial No. 742,106
Claims.
It is the primary object of my invention to provide a relatively simple, inexpensive, and highly efiicient auxiliary vapor generating attachment for machines that produce remedial or medicated vapors or gases used in the treatment of various ailments, infections and diseases. An example of such a machine will be found in the copending applications ,of Lee S. Chadwick, Serial Nos. 602,596, now Patent No. 2,529,137 issued Nov. 7, 1950 and 625,135, filed June 30, 1945 and October 29, 1945, respectively, and which produces vaporous ozonides.
In the use of machines of the kind above referred to it sometimes is found beneficial to add water vapors to the products of the machine; or to augment or reinforce said products with the vapors of certain medicines, or medicinal mixtures, such as menthol, or compounds containing menthol, and which may be prescribed by physicians for the treatment of specific disorders.
Another object is to provide an auxiliary vapor generating attachment for machines of the aforesaid character that is especially convenient of application to the machines, and that is equally convenient of use.
i A further object. is the provision of an attachment of the above character that is reliable and durable and not likely to get out of order.
The foregoing objects, with other more limited ones hereinafter appearing, are attained in the embodiment of the invention illustrated in the accompanying drawing wherein like parts are designated by like reference characters in the two views.
In the drawing, Fig. 1 represents a central vertical section through an auxiliary vapor generating attachment constructed in accordancewith my invention, the adjacent part of a vapor producing machine to which the attachment is applied being included in said view, and Fig. 2 is a plan view of the attachment and the underlying portion of the machine, the container or bottle for the liquid to be vaporized being omitted. A fragment of a vapor producing machine, such as that disclosed in the aforesaid applications, is shown in the drawing and designated, generally, by the reference letter A. The machine selected for the purpose of illustration includes a casing having a top wall a provided with an opening a in vertical alignment with the vapor outlet a of a mixing chamber a in which the vapors of a volatile liquid, such as pinene, intermingle with ozone that is generated by the machine.
My auxiliary vapor attachment includes a. re-
' ceptacle designated generally by the reference numeral I9, shown as having a circular top wall II, a bottom wall I2 of similar size and shape, and a cylindrical peripheral wall 13 that joins the edges of the top and bottom walls.
According to the present construction, the receptacle IQ comprises top and bottom halves that are secured together by a soldered lockseam I4. Projecting radially from the peripheral wall I3 above the seam I4 is an outlet spout [5, to which a hose may be connected if desired. The vapor inlet for the receptacle is provided by a tube I8 that extends through an aperture in the bottom wall 12, the aperture being sealed about the tube, as by soldering or Welding. The upper end of the tube It is approximately in the horizontal central plane of the outlet spout I5. Thus it will be seen that the receptacle is provided with an inlet for the primary vapors issuing from the machine A, and an outlet for the augmented vapors; and it will be observed that the inlet and outlet are substantially diametrically opposite each other. Depending from the top wall I I about a central opening therein is a sleeve 20, the lower end of which is a substantial distance below the plane of the upper end of the inlet tube It and the inner end of the outlet spout I5. Secured, in a suitable manner, as by soldering or welding, to the top wall I I about the central opening thereof is the open bottom of a cup-like support 22. Spaced apart circumferentially of said support, and located near the bottom thereof, are three (or more, if'desired) protuberances 23. These protuberances are adapted to sustain a container or bottles 25 in spaced relation to the wall of the support when said container or bottle is inverted and placed in the support so that its neck extends downwardly through the opening in the top wall II. When so supported, the mouth of the container will become liquid sealed within the sleeve 25.! when suflicient liquid flows from the container to fill the receptacle to the plane of said mouth. As the liquid in the receptacle is gradually vaporized by the application of heat thereto in a manner to be described hereinafter, additional liquid will descend from the container as permitted by a replacement of air admitted. to the receptacle through the support 22 about the container and entering the container through the mouth thereof. Thus it will be seen that, so lon as any liquid remains in the container, a liquid level will be maintained in the receptacle between the plane of the lower end of the sleeve 29 and t e general level of the inlet and outlet of the receptacle. This condition also seals off the vapor space of the receptacle from the air space that surrounds the neck of the container or bottle.
The peripheral wall l3 of the receptacle is shown as. having a reentrant portion 28 that lies within the liquid space of the receptacle. Such portion provides a well that houses an electric heater 3!] to which current is supplied through an insulated cable 3!.
In applying the attachment: to a vapor producing machine, according to the present example, the receptacle I is simply placed on the top wall a of the machine casing with the lower end. of the tube I6 projecting through the opening a and inserted into the vapor outlet a of the mixing chamber (1. A may be seen by reference to the first of the aforesaid applications, the vaporous products of the machine A are discharged under aforced draft from the outlet a Accordingly, with the machine in operation. the vapors therefrom, which I shall refer to as the primary vapors, are discharged from the tube I6 into the upper portion of the receptacle in. With the electric heater 3i! energized, the liquid contents of the receptacle will beheated and vapors will be-driven off therefrom which mix with the primary vapors. The augmented vapors may escape through the spout l5. directly into the room, or a hose may be connected to the spout for conveying the vapors to a more distant point and concentrating themwithin a specific area for a desired application or treatment.
The sleeve 25!, located as it is between the-inlet tube It and outlet spout !5, serves as a baffle to spread the incoming primary vapors and insure proper mixing'therewith of the augmented vapors.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:
1. An auxiliary vapor generating attachment for therapeutic vapor or gas producing machines, said attachment comprising a receptacle having a vapor in et and a va or outlet, said inlet being arranged for communicative connection with the va or outlet of a machine of the aforesaid character whereby the vapors from said machine will be caused to circu ate through the receptacle; the receptac e including a top wall having an opening, a sleeve surrounding said opening and depending from said top wall and having its lower end in a plane substantially below that of the vapor inlet and vapor outlet of the receptacle", a container for liquid having a discharge mouth and being otherwise sealed against the admission of air, means supporting the receptacle with a part thereof de ending through said opening and with its mouth liqu d sealed within the sleeve at an elevat on intermediate the lower end of the sleeve and the horizontal plane of the vapor inlet and vapor outlet of the receptacle. and means for heating the liquid in the receptacle so as to generate vapors therefrom that mix with the lac-- forementioned vapors as the latter pass through the r ceptacle.
