NOVELTY - The refrigerator (10) has a cabinet (14) that is provided with doors (18a, 18b) forming a storage compartment (22) are coupled. A first fan assembly (26) is positioned on an interior surface (30) of a first cabinet wall (34). A second fan assembly (38) is positioned on the interior surface of a second cabinet wall (42). The first and second fan assemblies comprise a circulation fans, and a filter is coupled to a photocatalyst to form an activated filter. Multiple LEDs are positioned to project light onto activated filter. An air circulation path is configured to direct airborne bacteria (66) and particulate matter within the storage compartment contemporaneously into the first and second fan assemblies using the circulation fans and circulate filtered air into the storage compartment through the activated filter placed in the air circulation path. USE - Antibacterial refrigerator for removing contaminants such as odor, toxic particle, and pathogen. ADVANTAGE - The construction and wiring allows the assembled rear panel assembly to be achieved using only six tin solders. The assembled rear assembly panel is simplified by able to weld both an external power supply cable and device wiring to LED conductive tracks of the LED panel and the circulation fans.

Antibacterial refrigerator for removing contaminants e.g. odor, has air circulation path that is configured to circulate filtered air into storage compartment through activated filter that is placed in air circulation path

Abstract

NOVELTY - The refrigerator (10) has a cabinet (14) that is provided with doors (18a, 18b) forming a storage compartment (22) are coupled. A first fan assembly (26) is positioned on an interior surface (30) of a first cabinet wall (34). A second fan assembly (38) is positioned on the interior surface of a second cabinet wall (42). The first and second fan assemblies comprise a circulation fans, and a filter is coupled to a photocatalyst to form an activated filter. Multiple LEDs are positioned to project light onto activated filter. An air circulation path is configured to direct airborne bacteria (66) and particulate matter within the storage compartment contemporaneously into the first and second fan assemblies using the circulation fans and circulate filtered air into the storage compartment through the activated filter placed in the air circulation path. USE - Antibacterial refrigerator for removing contaminants such as odor, toxic particle, and pathogen. ADVANTAGE - The construction and wiring allows the assembled rear panel assembly to be achieved using only six tin solders. The assembled rear assembly panel is simplified by able to weld both an external power supply cable and device wiring to LED conductive tracks of the LED panel and the circulation fans.
