The Dyson Air Multiplier is in the simplest definition afan with no visible blades. Not having blades on a fancan have many distinct advantages. Here the theorybehind the technology will be presented along with the
Multiplier’s features and advantages
The best way to examine the Air Multiplier is to break it apart into two distinct sections. Theseare the base, and the ring. An image of the Air Multiplier with these two main componentslabeled can be seen in Figure 1.
term ‘bladeless fan’
is often used to describe the Air Multiplier. Although there areno external blades that does not mean it is bladeless. In fact the blades, along with all thenecessary electronics, are located in the base.These blades are not like conventional fan blades;instead they are blades on an impeller. The purpose of the impeller is to pressurize the air it draws in fromsmall holes located around the circumference of thebase. This pressurized air travels up to the circularmanifold where it is released.The impeller has nine blades and is designed togenerate the high pressure and flow needed in order forthe air multiplier to work. The impeller is powered byan energy efficient brushless electric motor that Dysonalso developed.
