DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

The water purifier according to a first preferred embodiment of the present invention comprises a main body 1 with an electric motor 2 mounted inside thereof, and a vessel 6 seated on a seating portion 1' of the main body 1. A bar magnet 4 is attached to a shaft 3 of the motor 2.

Sensors 5 5' and 5" are provided to one side wall of the vessel 6 in each different height. The lower end of the vessel 6 is provided with a frustum cone-shaped ceramic filter 7. The ceramic filter 7 includes a double wall filled with ceramic particles 9 in which the double wall has a plurality of micro holes 8 around its inside and outside surface. Also, an oval magnet 10 is disposed in the internal space of the ceramic filter 7.

According to the present invention, the oval magnet 10 may consist of an alloy of magnet and Ag, and the ceramic filter 7 may consist of an antibiotic resin. Also, the ceramic filter may be made in the shape of a column or trumpet.

The operation of the first embodiment of the present invention will now be described with reference to FIG. 2.

After the vessel 6 is seated on the seating portion 1' of the main body 1 the motor 2 operates by engaging an operating switch 11 and in turn, the bar magnet 4 attached to the shaft 3 of the motor rotates. At that time, since a strong rotating force is produced by rotating the magnet with opposite magnetic poles, the magnetic body 10 disposed inside of the vessel 6 is continuously rotated in its position, thereby dispersing the water in the ceramic filter 7 towards the inside surface of the vessel.

At that time, the dispersed water flows into the double wall through the micro holes 8 on the inside surface of the ceramic filter 7 past the ceramic particles 9 by the continuously applied rotating force, and flows out of the micro holes 8 on the outside surface of the ceramic filter 7.

Therefore, the water is magnetized by a rotating permanent magnet, such that its molecular structure is changed into a hexagonal ring structure, and, the dissolved oxygen content of water is increased by passing through the plurality of the micro holes. Also, the mineral components disposed in the double wall are added to the water passing through it. Accordingly, the water may be converted into a condition suitable to the human body.

Referring now to FIGS. 5 to 8 a second preferred embodiment of the present invention will be described, wherein like reference numerals designate like or corresponding parts.

The water purifier according to a second preferred embodiment of the present invention comprises a main body 1 with an electric motor 2 mounted inside thereof, and a vessel 6 seated on a seating portion 1' of the main body 1. A bar magnet 4 is attached to a shaft 3 of the motor 2.

Sensors 5 5' and 5" are provided to one side wall of the vessel 6 at each different height. The lower end of the vessel 6 is provided with a disk-shaped ceramic filter 17. The ceramic filter 17 includes a double wall filled with ceramic particles 9 in which the wall has a plurality of fine vertical grooves 18 around the inside and outside surfaces. Also, a magnetic body 20 is disposed in the internal space of the ceramic filter 17.

The lower end of the ceramic filter 17 is provided with an annular guide portion 7'. The bottom of the ceramic filter 17 is engaged with a supporting cap 7" for maintaining a constant interval with the annular guide portion 7'.

The magnetic body 20 comprises a supporting rod integrally formed on the lower end thereof, a supporting plate 12 engaged with an end of the supporting rod, and a rotating ball 13 inserted in the center of the bottom surface of the supporting plate 12.

The operation of the second embodiment of the present invention will now be described with reference to FIG. 6.

After the vessel 6 is seated on the seating portion 1' of the main body 1 an operating switch 11 is engaged to operate the motor 2 and, in turn, the bar magnet 4 attached to the shaft 3 of the motor rotates. At that time, since a strong rotating force is produced by the rotation of the magnet with opposite magnetic poles, the magnetic body 20 disposed inside of the vessel 6 is rotated in its position.

The magnetic body 20 rotates continuously being supported by the rod. The smooth rotation of the magnetic body 20 is maintained by the rotating ball 13 inserted in the bottom surface of the supporting plate 12 thereby producing a very strong rotating force. And thus, the water within the ceramic filter 17 flows in whirls and is dispersed towards the inside surface of the vessel.

At that time, the dispersed water flows into the double wall through the grooves 18 on the inside surface of the ceramic filter 17 past the ceramic particles 9 by the rotating force applied continuously, and flows out the grooves 8 on the outside surface of the ceramic filter 17.
