Air conditioner - Apparatus For Treating Air Patent
Patent Date: January 2, 1906
Invented By: Willis Haviland Carrier
American engineer and inventor Willis Haviland Carrier developed the formulas and equipment that made air conditioning equipment possible. The world's first spray type air conditioning equipment was Carrier's 'Apparatus For Treating Air', which he correctly predicted would be used to enhance comfort as well as improve industrial processes and products. In 1911 Carrier disclosed his formula to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and is still used as the basis for all air conditioning calculations today. He also developed the first safe, low pressure centrifugal refrigeration machine using non-toxic, non-flammable refrigerant marked the beginning of the era of comfort cooling.
By controlling humidity as well as temperature, he invented air conditioning as we know it today!
