Paasche, 1909 Diversey Parkway, Wilmette, Ill. 60091 Filed Sept. 28, 1964, Ser. No. 399,681 Claims. (Cl. 239-305) This invention relates to space humidification, and more particularly relates to a unique relatively self-contained and portable automatic spray humidifier unit to achieve and maintain a predetermined humidity in an area.

The problem The need for adequate space humidification for maintenance of health, prevention of colds and other respiratory ailments, and the avoidance of spontaneous combustion in dry and dusty work areas is generally well known.

To those persons afilicted with even minor respiratory ailments, the necessity for adequate home and oflice humidification is accentuated by their personal discomfort during Waking hours and their discomfort and inability to obtain adequate rest during sleeping hours. Employers, in addition to experiencing personal discomfort due to inadequate humidity, find their businesses severely handicapped at various times during the year due to employee absenteeism occasioned by colds to which the employees may be more susceptible without adequate humidification in their place of work.

In addition to such health problems, various industries find a continuous control of humidity essential to the production of and maintenance of high quality products.

In the textile industry, for instance, adequate humidification is especially desirable in the warehousing of fabrics to maintain the fabrics at their original luster and to avoid fabric deterioration and expensive losses due to a dry atmosphere. In the printing industry, humidity controls are of a great value in helping to keep Warehoused paper at a uniformly high original quality prior to printing and to ensure perfect registration during printing.

Objects of the invention Therefore, a general object of the present invention is to provide a novel means for achieving closely controlled space humidification.

Another object is to provide a relatively noiseless and self-contained humidification unit suitable for automatically achieving a particular predetermined space humidification and for automatically maintaining such humidication.

A further object is to provide an exceptionally com pact and readily portable automatic spray humidifier apparatus suitable for humidifying diverse spaces with an atomized spray of moistened air such that drops ofmoisture do not run or drip from the apparatus and such that liquid water is not projected from the apparatus.

A related object is to provide means in such an apparatus suitable for shutting off and starting the humidfying spray responsive to changes to humidity in the area from a predetermined humidity.

Another object is to provide multiple spray devices in such an apparatus suitable for instantaneously changing the humidification capacity of the apparatus and to simultaneously deodorize the spaces humidified.

Another object is to provide a relatively noiseless method for automatically humidifying and deodorizing spaces and for automatically maintaining the humidity of such spaces at a minimum of expense and without projecting liquid water particles into the space humidified.

Other objects relate to the specific structural arrangement of the unique exceptionally compact and readily portable automatic spray humidifier apparatus.

For the attainment of these and such other objects as may appear or be pointed out, an embodiment of the invention is shown in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

FIG. 9 is a sectional view taken along lines 9-9 of FIG. 8; and

FIG. 10 is a sectional view taken along lines 10-10 of FIG. 8.

Detailed description of the invention Referring to the drawings, especially FIGS. 1 and 8 an automatic spray humidifier or humidification apparatus 18 embodying the principles of the present invention is shown having an air conditioner 20 to clean the air furnished to the humidifier, the air conditioner 20 serving as a base or mounting structure for the other components.

The automatic humidifier includes an air inlet 22, FIG. 5, connected to a source of air such as an air compressor, not shown, on one end and to an air valve 23 on its other end, valve 23 to open and close off theair supply leading to an air strainer 24 which strains or filters out any larger pieces of dirt or sediment which may be in the air supply to the unit, the air strainer being secured to and in communication with the air conditioner tank 20 which further cleans the air of all air impurities such as sand, rust particles, dust and the like.

After passing through the air conditioner 20, FIG. 1, the 'fiOW of air continues through an air regulator 26, secured to the tank, the regulator being connected to an air gage 28 having a dial 29 showing the pressure of air passing through the air regulator 26. The air then passes through an air valve 30 operated by solenoid 32 which is actuated by a humidistat 34 having a humidity dial 35 where the particular humidity desired may be set, the flow of air passing through air valve 30 continuing in the direction of the arrows, FIG. 2, through an air line 36 to an upper air manifold 38 leading to a spray deodorizer 40, FIG. 1, and automatic opening air brushes or atomizer spray guns 42, 43.

Means for furnishing water to the humidifier is provided and includes a water inlet 44 connected to a source of water, not shown, a water valve 46, a water strainer 48, a water gage 50, with water passing through the strainer 48 through a T connection 52 through water lines 54, 55 to spray gun 42.

Air conditioner tank 20, FIG. 1, comprises a generally cylindrical tank 56 having a base cap or closure 57 with drain valve 58. Base cap 57 has a substantially flat bottom 60 complementary to a support surface to serve as a stable base for the other components of a system.

The air conditioner 20 is adapted to attract any moisture, oil, or other foreign particles that might interfere with proper functioning of the several parts which affect the atomization of water from the atomizer spray heads 42, 43. At its upper end, FIGS. 2, 8, the air conditioner is closed by a top cap 62 having an air inlet opening 64 on its one side to permit entrance of air into the air conditioner tank, an air outlet opening 66 on the other side of the tank to permit the passage of air from the tank, and an upper support pipe or standard 70 supporting the various water components, that is, the water lines, water strainer, and water gage; and water lines leading to the atomizer heads or spray guns 42.

Air inlet 64, FIG. 8, on the air conditioner 20 is threaded internally for receipt of pipe 72 which is threaded externally on both ends, one end being connected to the air conditioner and the other end being connected to the air strainer 24.

Air strainer 24, FIG. 8, has a finely meshed screen 75, FIG. 10, through which the air must pass before entering the air conditioner tank, and is provided with a lower sediment nut 74 to clean out any accumulation of sediment removed from the air passing through the air strainer.

An air manifold assembly 80, FIGS. 8, 9, is secured to air conditioner tank 20 by a pipe 82 threadedly received into air outlet 66 in the top cap 62 of the air conditioner; and'the air manifold assembly 80 has an exit end 88 opening into a pipe 90 to permit a flow of air through the air manifold assembly to the air regulator 26. The air manifold assembly 84 also has a vertical pipe 92 secured within the assembly but not in communication with the flow of air from the air conditioner tank to the air regulator, the air manifold assembly thus serving as a support base or bracket for the pipe 92 and the atomizer guns and deodorizer mounted thereon.

Air regulator 26, FIGS. 1, 2 and 8, is provided with an air gage 28 having a dial face 29 for a direct reading of the air pressure of air passing through air regulator 26. The regulator 26 has an adjustment knob 96 where-by the air passing through the regulator may be adjusted, that is, cut down to a predetermined desired air pressure. In general, it has been found that at an air pressure of about forty pounds, good humidification results are achieved with the humidifier apparatus here described. Where the air pressure drops below 40 pounds, this may be an indication of sediment accumulation in the lines requiring cleaning of the various air lines or the air strainer. Air regulator 26 has a discharge end opening 98 with a pipe 100 threadedly inserted therein leading by suitable connections to air valve 30 for a flow of air through air valve 30.

Air valve 30 has an entrance end 102 and an exit end 104 connected to vertical support pipe 36 in communication with the atomizers and deodorizer. A solenoid 32 is mounted on top of air valve 30 and is adapted to open or close the valve 30 to open or shut off the flow of air to air pipe 92, the solenoid 32 being actuated by an electrical humidistat 34, FIGS. 2, 8, the humidistat being connected to a source of electricity by plug 106.

Humidistat 34 has a dial 35 which may be set to a particular humidity desired indicated by numerals on the dial, the humidistat being operatively connected to the solenoid to actuate the solenoid 32 responsive to changes in humidity within the space in which the humidistat operates. When the humidity within the space in which the humidistat is positioned reaches a particular predetermined di-al setting, the humidistat actuates solenoid 32 to shut off the flow of air through valve 30; and when the humidity within the space drops below the humidity desired, the humidistat again actuates the solenoid to open valve 30 permitting a flow of air through pipe 36 to air divider or manifold 38 having three separate passageways provided to divide the flow of air, a portion of the air passing through line 108 to a first atomizer head 42 on one side of the vertical support pipe 92; another portion to a central connection 109 to deodorizer 40; and a third portion of the flow of air on the opposite side of vertical pipe 92 passing through pipe 110 to a second atomizer *head 43.

A water assembly of the various lines furnishing water to the automatic atomizers and deodorizers is vertically supported over the air conditioner tank 20, FIG. 3. A Water inlet 44 is connected at one end to a source of water, not shown, and is connected at its other end to a water valve 46 having a conventional control knob 114 to open and shut off the flow of water to water strainer 48 to clean the various water lines. A conventional T coupling 52 is provided on the water line with a water valve 118, 120 on either side of the coupling to divide the flow of water to the atomizers 42, 43 and to provide means to vary or shutoff the flow of water to a particular atomizer. Water valve 118 is connected to a flexible line or water hose 54 connected at its far end to an atomizer gun 42, water valve 120 being connected to a similar water hose 55 leading to atomizer gun 43.

Means for atomizin-g water comprises the automatic opening atomizer heads or spray guns 42 or 43, FIG. 8. Spray guns 42, 43 each have a forward nozzle 122, 123 at their forward ends, 112, 113 to atomize diverse fluids, in this instance water, and to project the water forwardly in an atomized spray. The nozzles 122, 123 are in communication with one end of an inner passageway 124, 125 adapted to be connected at its rear end 126, 127 to a source of an aeriform substanceunder pressure, in this instance pressurized air supplied through air lines 108, 110.

The atomizer guns are connected at their forward ends to a source of water from water lines 54,, 55 passing through a suitable inner water valve 128, 129 to instantaneously shut off the flow of water into the atomizer guns when the flow of air through passageway 124, 125 is stopped.

On opening of valve 30 permitting a flow of air to the atomizers, air pressure within the atomizer guns builds up to a predetermined pressure to open plungers 128, 129 to permit a flow of water to the guns, the guns being adapted so that the flow of air forwardly as indicated by the arrows in the drawings projects the water forwardly in a very fine atomized spray. The automatic atomizer heads 42, 43 have adjusting knobs 140, 142 to regulate the amount of Water and air in the atomized spray.

Deodorizer 40, FIG. 4, comprises a conventional air brush for the atomized dispensation of deodorants, chemicals, perfumes as desired dependent on the particular area in which the humidifier is utilized. Deodorizer 40, FIG. 4, is connected directly to air line 92 by means of air line 109 and air manifold 38 being positioned immediately above air manifolds 84. The deodorizer has an inner air passageway 144 leading to a jet nozzle 146 at its forward end 130 and has a liquid container.132 fixedly secured dependingly from the forward end of the deodorizer by means of a conventional screw-on cap 134 and screw-on cap connection 136.

Cap connection 136 is fastened to the forward end of the deodorizer and includes an open conduit 137 in communication with and connected at one end to a hollow tube 139 having an open lower end 138 for receipt of fluids from within the container 132, the conduit 137 being in communication with air passageway 144.

Mode of operation 0 the humidifier from rust, scale particles of dirt and other foreign matter is supplied simultaneously to the atomizer guns. The entire assembly is readily portable by reason of its support from a central base which may comprise advantageously an air conditioner tank to clean the pressurized air supplied to the system of dirt, dust, rust particles, scale and other foreign matter which might otherwise clog the air lines and the precisely balanced atomization system.

A pressurized aeriform substance, in this case air, is provided in the system from a suitable source such as an air compression tank. Since uniform atomization of water and humidification of a particular space requires a uniform supply of air at a predetermined pressure, an air line pressure regulator 26 is provided in the system to regulate the air pressure to a predetermined maximum air pressure.

An automatic air cutoff system is provided comprising an air valve 30, a solenoid 32 and a humidistat 34. The solenoid 32 opens or closes the air valve 30 in communication With the atomizer guns and deodorizer, the solenoid being actuated by the humidistat 34 responsive to changes in humidity in the space to be humidified from a predetermined level of humidity set on the humidistat dial.

The regulated pressurized air flows through air valve 30 to the atomizer guns and the deodorizer so long as the humidity in the area is below the predetermined 'humidity setting of the humidistat. The flow of air through the atomizer guns 42 and 43 opens water valve within the guns at the water entrances permitting a flow of water into the atomizer guns. The water is atomized by a flow 0 fair at the jet nozzles 122, 123 into a finally atomized spray of water which is lighter than air and readily fills the space to be humidified.

A deodorizer 40 is provided having a passageway for the flow of air through the deodorizer, the passageway being located immediately above a hollow tube projecting downwardly into a container of deodorant or other fluid. The deodorizer 40 is internally adapted so that a flow of air through the deodorizer creates a vacuum within the deodorizer passageway causing a flow of liquid from the fluid container 132 upwardly into the deodorizer Where it is atomized at jet nozzle 128 and projected into the space to be humidified.

While a specific embodiment of the invention has been described above, the invention should not be limited thereto since many modifications of the invention may be made by those skilled in the art.
