BREEZING APPARATUS Holman Abrams, Greenville, S. 0. Application July 22, 1937, Serial No. 155,080 3 Claims. (Cl. 62-130) This invention relates to air breezing apparatus and comprises a portable unit to be placed in time and thereby give the discharged air a great er cooling effect, than if the trays are just fed rooms or the like and more particularly to a device which has a cooling effect on the air pass with cold water. 5 ing therethrough and into the room. An object of the invention is to provide an air cooling apparatus in which air is drawn into a pipe, open at each end, by means of fans placed at the respective ends of the pipe, the air in its 10 travel coming in contact with cold water or ice trays, said oppositely traveling air streams col-. liding or impacting at the center of said pipe and thereafter passing through louvers in the side or sides of the pipe into the room or like 15 being cooled. Another object is to provide what may be termed a natural cold air breezing system which will reduce the temperature of a room somewhat,v but not to an extent to give persons a. cold, which 20 is a common fault with systems now in use. Other objects and advantages will appear when considered in connection with the following de scription and accompanying drawing in which: Fig. 1 is a side elevation, partly in section. Fig. 2 is a top plan View. 25 Fig. 3 is a section on the line 3--3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a diagrammatic view of a modi?ca tion. In the drawing, in which like numerals indi cate corresponding parts, 5 indicates a tube hav ing enlarged ends 1, each of the enlarged ends having mounted therein a fan 8, the fans being mounted on standards which standards also support the tube in any desired manner. The tube 6 has an opening 9 in its side, covered by louvers l0, said opening extending preferably the entire length of the tube. It will of course be understood that an opening such as 9 could be provided on each side of the tube if desired, and 40 that the louvers could be made up in sections for more easy installation. In the top of the tube are mounted a series of cold or iced water trays or pans ll (two being shown) but of course as many as desired may be used. The said trays are interconnected by a pipe l2 extending therebetween. The trays are fed with water from a cold water drip-pipe l3 which tends to keep the water at a constant level in the trays, and the water entering the trays from the drip-pipe may be cut off, as by a valve at desired or necessary times, that is, if the evaporation of the water from the trays is not fast enough to prevent its overflow. It will be noted, that if desirable, the trays 55 H, instead of being fed with cold water, may be ?lled with cracked or crushed ice from time to _ In the modi?ed form shown in Fig. 4, air is forced by the fan through a zigzag air tube pas sage and thence into the room, said tube being covered or packed with ice, thus chilling the air discharged into the room. In operation, the trays I I are ?rst partly ?lled with cold or iced water from the pipe l3. Then the fans are started, drawing air from the out side and forcing oppositely traveling air streams into the tube and over and in contact with the cooled surfaces of the trays II. The oppositely traveling air streams impact or collide at about the center of the tube whereupon the air is given a swirling or surging action and thereafter dis tributed or forced through the opening 9 and through the louvers I0 into the room in which the device is placed. It will be understood that 20 the air discharging from the louvers l0 into the room will be somewhat chilled or cooled, at least somewhat lower than the room temperature, by its contact with the surfaces of the trays II and thereby have a pleasing and cooling effect on the 25 atmosphere of the room, not too cold, which is an objection to some cooling systems now being used. The device is adapted to» be placed at any con venient place in a room, is cheap and simple to manufacture and easily installed and dismantled 30 and adapted to be used as desired. It will of course be understood that the device is pri marily intended as a portable cooler for the cool ing of single rooms, but is not limited thereto 35 within the scope of the following claims. I claim: 1. An air breezing apparatus comprising an open ended tube, interconnected water trays mounted within said tube, a drip-pipe leading to one of said water trays and a fan mounted adja 40 cent end each of said tube for forcing oppositely traveling air streams to the interior of the tube. 2. An air conditioning apparatus comprising a tube, ice trays mounted within the tube, and means at the opposite ends of the tube for forcing 45 oppositely traveling air streams into the tube, said tube having an air discharge’ opening along its side. 3. An air conditioning apparatus comprising‘ a horizontal tube having a discharge opening, ice 50 trays mounted in the top of the tube and de pending downwardly therein and means at the end of the tube for forcing oppositely traveling air streams into the tube in contact with the 55 surface of the ice trays.
