Description

J. FUSAY ET AL VAPORI ZER June 19, 1951 Filed Dec. 1, 1949 Patented June 19, 1951 VAPORIZER Jules Fusay, Jackson Heights, and Hyman Eventoif, Bronx, N. Y.

Application December 1, 1949, Serial No. 130,434

1 Claim.

The invention herein disclosed is a device for vaporizing and dispersing perfumes, incense, disinfectants, deodorizers and the like.

Objects of the invention are to provide a device of this character which will effectively vaporize and disperse such materials, which will be low in first cost and in cost of operation and which with all these advantages will be ornamental in character and therefore suited to use wherever its eiiects are desired.

Further objects of the invention are to provide a practical and efiicient form of vaporizer which can be operated from any electric outlet and which will have no moving parts, so as to be absolutely quiet in its action.

Other important objects of the invention are to provide a vaporizer of the type indicated which Will utilize to the fullest possible extent the vaporizable materials without waste or residue and which can be washed and kept clean and sanitary, ready for use, as required, with different vaporizable materials.

Other desirable objects and the novel features through which the various purposes of the invention are attained are set forth or will appear in the course of the followin specification.

The drawing accompanying and forming part of the specification illustrates a present practical embodiment of the invention. Structure, however, may be modified and changed as regards the present illustration without departing from the true spirit and scope of the invention as hereinafter defined and claimed.

Fig. 1 in the drawing is a perspective view of one of the new Vaporizers Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross sectional view through the base of the device as on substantially the plane of line 22 of Fig. 3, with the carrier for the vaporizable material removed;

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal vertical sectional view of the complete device.

As particularly shown in Figs. 1 and 3, important features of the invention are the provision of an upwardly tapered, generally conical member 5 having external grooves 6 for containing and supporting a vaporizable medium and of hollow formation to contain an electric lamp or other suitable form of heater 1.

Preferably the hollow vaporizing support is in the form of a shell of plastic, glass, metal, clay or ceramic material and the vaporizable medium containing grooves 6 may be portions of a single, continucus helix progressing spirally from a shallow depression or cup 8 in the top of the article, down to the final circular groove or trough 9 at the bottom rim forming terminus.

The vapor dispersing or dissipating element described and enclosed heater are supported on a suitable base and the latter is shown at Ill as of hollow formation adapted to be placed on a table, desk or other support.

This hollow base serves to support the vapor disseminating element in raised position and also provides a holder for tubes, phials, bottles or other containers of the essence that may be used on the vapor dispersing member.

For convenience this hollow base may have a hinged or removable cover I! for providing convenient access to the materials intended to be used with the device.

The lamp or heater 7 may be mounted in a socket I2 adapted to be connected by cord l3 with a convenient electric outlet.

The hollow conical member is shown as removably supported on a ring-like form of carrier I 4 mounted on the lamp socket.

The invention may be used to vaporize various kinds of perfumes, incense, and other aromatic mediums and for disinfecting, medicating, cleodorizing and humidifying purposes. It is particularly suited to dispersing the agreeable and beneficial odors of pine oil and the like. A few drops of such oil or extract deposited in the cup 8 at the top of the vaporizer will gravitate slowly. down the spiral track, becoming more heated as it attenuates and approaches the zone of highest temperature in the progressively extended reaches of the spiral groove. This, in practice, generally provides that the material will be substantially all vaporized by the time it reaches the lowest convolution, assuring practically complete dissipation of volatile contents without residue. Thus substantially complete utilization of volatilizable products is assured without attention on the part of the user.

The vaporizing member maybe of transparent or translucent material so as to transmit part of the light, thus, if desired, to serve in the nature of a night lamp and, at any rate, to afford agreeable and ornamental illumination.

Further, and of special importance in connection with the use of pine oil, the conical ridged or grooved vaporizing element creates the novel and attractive appearance of a pine tree, suggesting in ornamental fashion the particular function and use of the device.

With all the advantages mentioned, the device is of relatively simple, inexpensive construction and has no moving parts to get out of order or require attention. The vaporizing cone may be lifted off the support it and be readily washed and cleaned and similarly, the hollow base which may be of plastic, glass or other material, is ornamental in character and easily kept clean and attractive.

Preferably the vaporizing cone and supporting ring are proportioned so that the cone will be located Slightly above the base with a space I5 intervening to promote circulation of air heated by the lamp, upwardly over the containing grooves of the vaporizer. i

What is claimed is:

The vaporizer herein disclosed and comprising a generally conical, hollow member of heat transmitting material having open grooves about the same for containing vaporizable medium, a heater within said hollow member and a base having means for supporting said heater and said hollow conical member in spaced relation above said heater and above said base, said member having a cupped formation in the top of the same for receiving the vaporizable medium and said groove extending continuously in spiral formation to the base of the member and ther terminating in a continuous circular groove.
