Dyson Small Ball Vacuum Cleaner with 2 Tier Radial Cyclone Technology
The Dyson Small Ball is a lightweight and space efficient upright vacuum cleaner with an impressive 150 AW of suction power. The vacuum's advanced self-adjusting cleaner head automatically adjusts between carpets and hard floors, sealing in suction. The direct drive motor pushes the cleaner's bristles deep into carpets for thorough cleaning. 19 cyclones arranged across two (2) tiers work in parallel to increase airflow and capture fine dust. And when it comes time to empty the .21 gallon bin, it only takes the push of a button.
At only 12.15 lbs., the Small Ball is easy to move from room to room. Dyson Ball technology maximizes maneuverability around furniture and other obstacles. Plus, with a 42 ft. cleaning radius, the Small Ball has a 25% longer reach when compared to Dyson's previous small upright vacuum.
In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner's diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He'd recently built an industrial cyclone tower for his factory that separated paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner He set to work. Five years and 5,127 prototypes later, he had invented the world's first bagless vacuum cleaner.
James Dyson's vacuum cleaner was first sold in Japan, the home of high-tech products. Known as the 'G-Force', it impressed the Japanese with its performance and quickly became a status symbol, selling for $2,000 a piece. It also won the 1991 International Design Fair prize in Japan.
With the royalties from G-Force sales, James Dyson was able to set up his own company, Dyson Ltd. In 1993 he opened his own research centre and factory in the Cotswolds, and set to work making a new vacuum - one that would capture even smaller particles of dust. It was called DC01, for 'Dual Cyclone', and it was the first vacuum cleaner to maintain 100% of suction 100% of the time.
Today, there are Dyson machines in over 65 countries around the world. Dyson has grown from one man and one idea to a technology company with over 1,000 engineers worldwide. But it doesn't stand still. At its core is an ever-growing team of engineers and scientists. More ideas. More invention.
