Description

GARBAGE DEODORIZING AND DEHYDRATING APPARATUS
Technical Field
The present invention relates to a garbage deodorizing and dehydrating apparatus. More particularly, the present invention relates to a garbage deodorizing and dehydrating apparatus by which garbage is directly dehydrated in a kitchen to be discharged in a dehydrated and lightened state, and at the same time, an offensive odor produced while performing a dehydrating process is removed, whereby a volume and a weight of domestic waste are lessened, environmental pollution is avoided, and sanitization is ensured due to deodorization.
Background Art With the development of scientific techniques and increases in personal income, as people live in comfortable circumstances, a great deal of garbage is produced in our daily lives. These days, garbage forms about 65% of the entire waste in a downtown area. In certain waste-reclaimed lands, introduction of wet garbage is prohibited. Thus, as for framing of environmental standards, effective treatment and disposal of wet garbage have drawn considerable attention. In this regard, because wet garbage should be spread out over an area for an extended period of time to remove water contained therein, due to offensive odor and microorganisms generated in the garbage, unsanitariness is caused, whereby a person can be disgusted with the procedure of removing water from the wet garbage. If the waste-reclaimed land is filled with the wet garbage, seepage water seriously pollutes the environment .

Best Mode for Carrying Out the Invention
Reference will now be made in greater detail to a preferred embodiment of the invention, an example of which is illustrated in the accompanying drawings. Wherever possible, the same reference numerals will be used throughout the drawings and the description to refer to the same or like parts. A garbage deodorizing and dehydrating apparatus according to the present invention can be constructed in a manner such that it has a manual operation pattern or an automatic operation pattern.
Each of the manual and automatic operation patterns includes, as its main component elements, a dehydrator body 10, a dehydrating bath 20, dehydrating means 30, deodorant supply means 40, and a plurality of injection nozzles 50. The dehydrator body 10 is formed by a cylindrical side wall and a bottom wall. The dehydrator body 10 has a lid 12 which is hingedly coupled to and capable of closing an upper end of the dehydrator body 10. The dehydrator body 10 possesses a discharge guide plate 14 which is secured to a circumferential inner surface of the cylindrical side wall adjacent to the bottom wall and inclined by a predetermined angle and a drain hose 16 which is connected to the cylindrical side wall adjoining an upper surface of the discharge guide plate 14. The dehydrating bath 20 is suspended inside and by the cylindrical side wall of the dehydrator body 10. The dehydrating bath 20 is defined therethrough with a plurality of discharge holes 22 and has a closed lower end. The dehydrating means 30 functions to remove water from wet garbage which is accommodated in the dehydrating bath 20. The deodorant supply means 40 has a deodorant tank 41 which is fastened to a circumferential outer surface of the dehydrator body 10 and a pumping arrangement which pumps a deodorant filled in the deodorant tank 41. The plurality of injection nozzles 50 are installed on the circumferential inner surface and adjacent to an upper end of the cylindrical side wall of the dehydrator body 10 so that they are spaced apart one from another by a preset angle along a circumferential direction and directed toward a lower part of the dehydrator body 10. The plurality of injection nozzles 50 are connected with the deodorant supply means 40 to remove an offensive odor produced in the wet garbage.
In accordance with a first embodiment of the present invention, as shown in FIG. 3, the dehydrating means 30 comprises a pressing plate 31 which can be inserted into the dehydrating bath 20 to compress the wet garbage and thereby discharge water contained therein through the plurality of discharge holes 22, and a handle 32 which is secured to an upper surface of the pressing plate 31 and extends outward through the lid 12 of the dehydrator body 10. At this time, the handle 32 is structured in a manner such that an upper half thereof can be rotated by 90 degrees with respect to a lower half thereof to be placed on an upper surface of the lid 12 and thereby prevent the pressing plate 31 from being released from the lid 12.
Also, in the first embodiment of the present invention, since the dehydrating bath 20 is manually operated, it should by configured in a manner such that it is supported by the dehydrator body 10. To this end, adjacent to the upper end of the dehydrator body 10, an annular engaging rib 18 is formed on the circumferential inner surface of the cylindrical side wall so that the dehydrating bath 20 can be seated on the annular engaging rib 18. As can be readily seen from FIG. 3, in the first embodiment of the present invention, the pumping arrangement comprises a foot lever 42 which is arranged on the circumferential outer surface of the dehydrator body 10 to be pressed by human leg power and thereby inject the odorant through the plurality of injection nozzles 50.
On the other hand, referring to FIG. 4, there is shown a garbage deodorizing and dehydrating apparatus in accordance with a second embodiment of the present invention, which has the automatic operation pattern.
In this second embodiment of the present invention, the dehydrating means 30 comprises a driving motor 33 which is fixedly located at the lower part of the dehydrator body 10 and capable of being rotated in forward and backward directions and being reduced in its velocity, a rotation shaft 34 for rotatably supporting the dehydrating bath 20, a pair of pulleys 35 and 36 respectively coupled to an output shaft of the driving motor 33 and the rotation shaft 34, and a belt 37 wound on the pair of pulleys 35 and 36 to transfer rotation force therebetween.
At this time, it is preferred that a lower surface of the dehydrating bath 20 and an upper surface of the rotation shaft 34 are formed with coupling ribs 38, whereby they are reliably coupled with and decoupled from each other. By this, the dehydrating bath 20 and the rotation shaft 34 can be operated in an interlocked manner by rotation force of the driving motor 33.
In the garbage deodorizing and dehydrating apparatus according to this second embodiment of the present invention, which has the automatic operation pattern, because the dehydrating body 20 is designed as a rotating body, in order to prevent the dehydrating body 20 from being decoupled from the rotation shaft 34 due to centrifugal force generated upon operation of the apparatus, a plurality of bearing type rotation guides 19 can be secured to the circumferential inner surface of the cylindrical side wall of the dehydrator body 10 so that they are spaced apart one from another by a preselected angle in the circumferential direction. Also, while not shown in the drawings, it is to be readily understood by a person skilled in the art that an operating switch of the driving motor 33 for rotation of the dehydrating bath 20 is provided to the circumferential outer surface of the dehydrator body 10. In this regard, while it is possible to construct the operating switch to have a single operation mode, it can be envisaged that the operating switch can be constructed to have multiple operation modes so as to allow a user to select a dehydrating speed according to his or her desires. In this second embodiment of the present invention, the pumping arrangement comprises a pump 44 which is driven by electric power applied thereto through switching of an on/off switch 43.
In the meanwhile, as a feature common to the first and second embodiments of the present invention, it is preferred that the plurality of injection nozzles 50 are installed to have a downward injection angle so as to enable the deodorant to be evenly distributed over the garbage as a whole accommodated in the dehydrating bath 20. Further, the deodorant tank 41 may have, on a front surface thereof, a transparent sight glass made of acryl, to ensure that a remaining amount of the deodorant is easily confirmed. In addition, it can be contemplated that water which is removed from the wet garbage is drained through the drain hose 16 to a sinkhole or a drain outlet of a kitchen sink.
Hereafter, operations of the garbage deodorizing and dehydrating apparatuses according to the present invention constructed as mentioned above will be described in detail.
In the first embodiment, wet garbage is accommodated in the dehydrating bath 20 which is seated on the annular engaging rib 18 of the dehydrator body 10. A portion of water contained in the wet garbage can be discharged through the plurality of discharge holes 22 defined in the dehydrating bath 20 while accommodating wet garbage in the dehydrating bath 20. If wet garbage is accommodated in the dehydrating bath 20 to a predetermined height, in a state where the lid 12 is closed, the upper half of the handle 32 serving as dehydrating means in the first embodiment is vertically erected and pressed downward. By this, as the pressing plate 31 is inserted into the dehydrating bath 20, the wet garbage is compressed to be deprived of water. Then, water discharged through the plurality of discharge holes 22 is drained via the discharge guide plate 14 through the drain hose 16.
Upon removing water from the wet garbage or accommodating the wet garbage in the dehydrating bath 20, a pumping pressure is created by reciprocating the foot lever 42 through a multitude of times, whereby the deodorant filled in the deodorant tank 41 is injected toward the garbage to remove an offensive odor produced in the garbage.
Since the wet garbage is deprived of water and at the same time the offensive odor is removed from the garbage, by taking the dehydrating bath 20 out of the dehydrator body 10, the garbage can be disposed or used as barnyard manure without adversely affecting the environment . In the second embodiment, as the operating switch
(not shown) is turned on, electric power is applied to the driving motor 33. Thereupon, rotation driving force of the driving motor 33 is transferred to the rotation shaft 34 through the pair of pulleys 35 and 36 and the belt 37, whereby the rotation shaft 34 is rotated.
The dehydrating bath 20, which is coupled to the rotation shaft 34 by the coupling ribs 38, is rotated at a desired velocity while being guided by the plurality of rotation guides 19 secured to the circumferential inner surface of the cylindrical side wall of the dehydrator body 10. As centrifugal force acts on the wet garbage which is accommodated in the dehydrating bath 20, water contained in the wet garbage is discharged through the plurality of discharge holes 22. Since a water discharging procedure is the same as the case of the first embodiment, detailed descriptions thereof will omitted herein.
By applying electric power through the on/off switch 43 to the pump 44 which is arranged on the bottom wall of the dehydrator body 10, the pump 44 is operated. Then, the deodorant filled in the deodorant tank 41 is injected through the plurality of injection nozzles 50 using a pumping pressure created by the pump 44. A deodorizing time may be established to be the same as that of the first embodiment.
Industrial Applicability
As a result, the garbage deodorizing and dehydrating apparatus according to the present invention provides advantages in that, since the apparatus is manufactured in such a way as to be easily used by anyone at home or in a restaurant, even an inexperienced person can be a good hand at the use of the apparatus in a short period of time. Specifically, because the apparatus has a structure for injecting deodorant and thereby removing an offensive odor produced in garbage, even if the apparatus is directly used in a kitchen, disgust is not caused in the course of removing water from the garbage. Also, due to the fact that the garbage is deprived of water and the offensive odor through dehydrating and deodorizing processes, an adverse influence is not imposed on the environment while treating or disposing the garbage.
In the drawings and specification, there have been disclosed typical preferred embodiments of the invention and, although specific terms are employed, they are used in a generic and descriptive sense only and not for purposes of limitation, the scope of the invention being set forth in the following claims.
