  • Publication number: 20100051719
    Abstract: A soap dispensing shower head assembly comprises a pipe fitting 3 having internal threads 2 attaching directly to a shower faucet pipe 1. A fitting ring 5 is rotatably mounted on the pipe fitting 3 and head internal threads 4 so that the fitting ring 5 may be attached to an externally threaded portion 6 of the bottle bracket 7. First and second water conduits 11, 13 are in communication with a diverter valve 9 so that incoming water from the faucet pipe 1 is directed through the first conduit 11 and through the diverter valve 9, and back up through the second conduit 13. The diverter valve 9 is manually operable via a knob 37 and can be positioned to direct water through the second conduit 13 to the soap and water mixing chamber 15 in the pivoting shower head 17. The soap and water mixture stream then exits the shower head 17 through outlet nozzles 18.

  • Publication number: 20080116753
    Abstract: A portable electric appliance (1, 23) such as a hand held hair dryer uses a brushless electric motor (13, 25) in combination with a secondary fan assembly (14) and/or an air scoop (24) to redirect air toward the motor (13, 25), to maintain a cool operating temperature. The appliance includes a control circuit (50, 80, 94, 102, 110) for controlling the brushless motor (13, 25) and other appliance features. The control circuit and the coil windings (21) of the brushless electric motor are designed to run the appliance at a relatively low current to accommodate a higher operating voltage, thereby operating at a low wattage for reducing extraneous or waste heat. This facilitates placement of the control circuit in a small, portable appliance, and may enhance operation of the appliance in certain modes such as a hair dryer “cool shot.
