These and various other objects are attained
In thelower portion of the compartment '3 is
installed a, blower ‘I and a motor 8 driving such
35 blower through any suitable connection.
blower discharges air, as indicated in Fig. 1,
through the partition 2 into the compartment 4.
The air delivered to the blower from the inlet‘ 5
is preferably modi?ed by ‘a combined humidi?er
and ?lter occupying the upper portion of the
compartment 3. While said humidi?er and ?lter
may have any suitable construction, that'illus
trated comprises an open-topped rectangular .box
extended between the side walls of the casing I,
and having ‘an imperforate bottom It and fo-v
raminous side walls Illa. Said walls are spaced
from the partition 2 and opposite end wall of the
casing to form air passages lllb. In thetop por
tion of said box is mounted a spray head II to
50 which water may be continuously supplied by a
pipe _l2, the spray discharging both downwardly
a gas or oil burner l9 discharging into said cham
ber and of any suitable construction, and a door 25
20 in said end- wall gives access to such burner.
From said combustion chamber there rises ‘a ?ue
2|, inclined away from the partition wall 2 and
leading to one of two horizontally spaced headers
22 and 23 arranged in the top portion of the com- 30
partment 4. Said headers are connected by a
considerable number of ?ues 24 spaced above the
combustion chamber, and spaced from eachother
to form passages 25 for the up-flow of air. From‘
the header 23 a pair of horizontally spaced ?ues 36
26 extend downwardly engaging but not com
municating with the combustion chamber, and
from the lower portion of each such ?ue, an out-‘
‘ '
let 21 for gases of combustion opens through the
adjacent side walls of the casing I. The outlet 21 40
of either ?ue may-be capped as indicated at 28,
and a plurality of vertically spaced ?ues 29 con
necting the two down-?ues provides for a ?ow of '
the gases from the ?ue soclosed to the other out
let 21.
In use of the described apparatus the air dis
charged from the blower 1 passes largelybetween
the cross ?ues 29 and to the conditioned air out
let i by way of the vertical passages 25. A por
tion of the air however, circulates around the 50
heat exchangerthroughthe space 30 surrounding
and laterally from said head so as to engage two the heat exchanger, and rises from such space to
tiers of vanes 12a arranged in vertically spaced the outlet 6.
The arrangement is such that a very extensive '
relation upon foraminous walls l2b, spaced in
surface area is provided for transferring heat
55 wardly from the walls "a. Between the walls
from the combustion gases to the air stream ?ow

It will, of course, be understood that the burner
is is used only when warm air is required, and
that ice is employed in the box ll, l?a only when
it is required to cool or dehumidlty the air de
livered by the apparatus.
. The described location of the humidi?er and
?lter permits its installation as a readily acces
10 sible unit distinct from the heat exchanger, and
the use of the space within the humidi?er for
air cooling‘purposes permits a‘ convenient use of
‘ice to cool or dehumidity the air and adds to the
compactness of the apparatus.
‘What I claim is:
downwardly extending from the other‘ header,
one of said‘ downwardly extending ?ues having
an outlet for gases, a plurality of vertically
spaced ?ues connecting the two downwardly ex
tending ?ues,v and means for impelling ‘air be
tween the downwardly extending ?ues and above
the combustion chamber to said air passages.

pair of headers spaced apart in a substantially
horizontal direction, a plurality of ?ues connect
