Abstract: In an air-conditioning apparatus, even if gas other than refrigerant flows into an indoor unit of the air-conditioning apparatus through an air inlet of the indoor unit, a sensor does not make erroneous detection, and if refrigerant leakage occurs, the sensor reliably detect the refrigerant leakage. The air-conditioning apparatus uses refrigerant having a higher density than that of air, and includes a housing, an air inlet provided in a front surface of the housing to allow air in a room to flow into the housing, a heat exchanger that transfers heat between the refrigerant and the air that flows into the housing through the air inlet, an air outlet that allows the air subjected to heat exchange at the heat exchanger to be blown from the housing, a fan provided in an air passage extending from the air inlet to the air outlet, and a sensor that detects leakage of the refrigerant. The heat exchanger is provided above the fan, and the sensor is provided below the fan.
Abstract: A flux recovery device recovers a vaporized flux being generated at a time of soldering an electronic circuit board on which electronic components are placed. The flux recovery device includes a first pipe, a dust collector, and a current controller. The first pipe causes gas including the vaporized flux to pass to the flux recovery device. The dust collector solidifies the vaporized flux passed through the first pipe and collects dust, by a plasma discharge. The current controller performs a constant current control of the plasma discharge.
