Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19913938A1] The inner drum (1) comprises two separate half-shells (2,3) each extending across half of the drum periphery. At least one half-shell (3) can be shifted in the axial direction (26) in relation to the other half-shell (3). The inner space of each shell (2,3) is divided by at least one partition (21-24) into at least two adjacent parts (12-17). When the inner drum rotates, at least one section of a half-shell (2) forms a joint inner drum chamber (18-20) with at least one opposite section of the other shell (3).

Abstract (de)

Bei einer Trocknungseinrichtung für Wäsche mit einer in einem stationären Gehäusemantel (11) um eine Trommeldrehachse (9) rotierend antreibbaren Innentrommel (1) für die Wäscheaufnahme ist diese in zwei sich über jeweils etwa den halben Trommelumfang erstreckende, eigenständige Trommelhalbschalen (2,3) aufgeteilt. Eine Halbschale (2) ist durch einen Verschiebeantrieb in Axialrichtung (9,26) gegenüber der anderen, axialfixen Halbschale 3 verschiebbar. Der Innenraum einer jeden Halbschale (2,3) ist durch Trennwände (21-24) in mehrere in Axialrichtung (9,26) nebeneinanderliegende Abteile (12-17) aufgeteilt, wobei die einzelnen Abteile (12-14; 15-17) der beiden Halbschalen (2,3) in gegenseitiger Überdeckungsstellung jeweils eine gemeinsame, in sich abgeschlossene Innentrommelkammer (18-20) bilden (Fig. 2), während sie bei in Axialrichtung (9,26) gegeneinander versetzter Relativposition der Halbschalen (2,3) die Weiterförderung eines Wäschepostens bewerkstelligen und auf ihrer Beschichtungsseite (27) mit einem neuen Wäscheposten beschickbar und auf ihrer Entladungsseite (28) entladbar sind. <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
