A NEW DISINFECTING AND DEODORIZING LAMP, AND A NEW FORMALIN DISINFECTOR.

A NEW DISINFECTING AND DEODORIZING LAMP, AND A NEW FORMALIN DISINFECTOR. We present illustrations of a new disinfecting and deodorizing lamp for household use, and a new formalin disinfector. In this disinfector the formalin is employed as pastils (Paraform) instead of the formerly used fluid form. The pastils are vaporized and the formalin given off in its gaseous form, i.e., its most active form, as it thus penetrates everywhere in the room and the most resistant pathogenic forms are entirely destroyed. Other advantages are the even distribution of the gaseous formalin, the cheapness and simplicity of the apparatus and the fact that it does not injure fabrics, etc., thus making it unnecessary to remove furniture, ornaments, etc., from the room to be disinfected. To disinfect a medium sized room from 100 to 150 pastils are vaporized. The disinfecting and deodorizing lamp is constructed on the same principle as the formalin disinfector, but is smaller.
