2 Claims. (Cl. 261—30)
This invention relates to a' spraying apparatus,
outwardly‘ inclined shel1 or apron 5 of desired
and it is an object of the invention to provide
an apparatus of this kind especially designed for
inclination and preferred major diameter.
At substantially the axial center of the apron
use for the diffusion of a liquid in the form of a
5 is an annular support or platform 6 of a major
diameter slightly in excess of the diameter of
the upper open face of the basin 4 but consid
erably less than the major or upper diameter of
the apron 5.
Radiating from this support or platform ,6 and
whirling mist.
Another object of the invention is to provide
a device of this kind having novel means for
effectively diffusing a liquid insecticide and to
also provide an apparatus of this kind whereby
the liquid is discharged in the form of a mist.
It is also an object of the invention to provide

narrow arms 1 terminating in the depending feet
8 which are suitably anchored, as at 9,, to the
apron 5, or skirt as it may also be called, adja
cent the upper or outer margin of such apron
or skirt 5. These feet 8 are of such dimensions
as to position the support or platform 6 a desired
distance above the upper or outer margin of the
an apparatus of this kind constructed in a man
ner to permit the same, when not spraying, to
be employed to advantage as a lamp or as a fan.
It is another object of the invention to pro
vide an apparatus of this kind which can be eas
ily knocked down and reassembled to facilitate

to provide an apparatus of this kind wherein the 20 points circumferentially therearound is provided

at desired points therearound are the electric

believedzto beobvious that. when either the fan
blades 28 or the lighting elements '32 are being
used collectively or separately, the valve 24 should
be closed unless, of course, the spraying operation
may-also be desired.
From the foregoing description it is thought
to be obvious-thata spraying apparatus con

ticularly well adapted for use by reason of the
convenience and facility with which it may be
assembled and operated.
