Title:
CLOTH DRIER, WASHING MACHINE, AND WASHING MACHINE WITH CLOTH DRYING FUNCTION
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2007/043326
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
This invention provides a cloth drier, which is improved in the effect of washing, deodorizing and sterilization of clothes by ozone and can allow an ozone generation element to be easily replaced, or allow ozone to be safely regulated, and a washing machine and a washing machine with a cloth drying function. An ozone generator (40) applies silent discharge to an introduced air to generate ozone. This ozone is sucked into a drying air duct (15) by a blower (20) and the rotation of a drum (3) and is mixed into air heated by a heater (21), and the mixture is supplied through an inlet (17) into the drum (3). This allows ozone to be supplied into clothes to be dried, and the clothes are effectively deodorized and sterilized. Since the ozone generator (40) is disposed away from the drying air duct (15), the ozone generation element can be easily replaced. After the completion of drying, there is no ozone within the drum (3) due to an oxidation reaction, and, thus, there is no possibility that the user is influenced by ozone when the user takes the clothes out of the drum (3).
