Of course, the English Dyson company needs no introduction. This brand has long become a common synonym for a cyclone vacuum. As known, cyclone filtration separates air and dust particles by means of vortex flows. Most modern powerful vacuums use this technology to clean the air from dust.
Dyson has an innovative high-tech center in Singapore that conducts research and develops new products for the company. As a result, Dyson products regularly take leading positions among the most innovative models. Of course, 2018 was no exception. The company has improved its previous Dyson V8 vacuum, offering an innovative Dyson Cyclone V10 cord-free model.
Today, it rightfully heads the list of the most innovative vacuums in this segment.
The company offers three modifications of the Dyson Cyclone V10 – Motorhead with three nozzles and a dust collector volume of 0.54 liters, Animal with five nozzles and Absolute with six nozzles. In addition, the volume of the Animal and Absolute dust collectors reaches 0.76 liters. Respectively, Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is the most functional but also the most expensive.
For the rest, all these models are identical. Compared with the Dyson V8, the novelty has a higher suction power and an increased volume of dust collector. In addition, the design of the new dust collector provides more convenient emptying.
New Dyson V10 engine with digital control
The company has significantly improved its own digital-controlled brushless motor. Today, it’s the most compact, lightweight and powerful model. The rotational speed of its rotor reaches 125,000 rpm.
Of course, this speed creates a huge load on the axle, which is too great for traditional steel. Therefore, the company uses ceramics. The ceramic motor shaft is sintered at 1600 ° C. As a result, it is 3 times stronger and 2 times lighter compared to a traditional steel shaft.
Additionally, the company shifted the impeller from the front of the engine to the rear. As a result, the flow of cold air further reduces the temperature during the passage along the axis of the engine. These solutions allowed engineers to increase the rotation speed to 125,000 rpm.
In addition, placing the engine, container and cyclones on the same line reduces air resistance. In fact, the air passes from the nozzle to the cyclone in a straight path unlike the previous V8.
The cyclone increases the air flow rate from 72.4 km/h to 193 km/h, creating a centrifugal force to trap small particles. In total, 14 cyclones generate an overload of 79,000g for air filtration.
As a result, the complex of these solutions provided an increase in the suction power by 20% compared with a Dyson V8 vacuum. In fact, the new compact engine provides the suction power of a full-size vacuum.
The novelty uses an innovative five-stage filtration system. The first large cyclone cleans the air from large heavy debris. The second stage filters large but light debris, including wool, fluff, etc., using a strainer made of a thin, perforated steel sheet. It’s placed on the inner cup of the dust collector. The third stage includes 14 small cyclones, which purify the air from the smallest dust. Dust and debris is collected in the central part of the dust collector, which is reliably isolated from its outer part and from the internal duct. Than, the air passes through the pre-engine filter, which cleans it of dust residues.
Finally, the post-engine filter performs final cleaning. Of course, all the joints between the elements of the motor unit, pipe and nozzles have reliable seals made of rubber or elastic plastic. Moreover, clamps – latches provide reliable tight connections. Pre-engine and post-engine filters are combined in a single unit for ease.
According to the company, the filtration system catches 99.97% of dust up to 0.3 microns in size, which corresponds to the HEPA class according to the US standard or HEPA H13 according to the European classification. Filters are cleaned under running cold water at least once a month.
The company has also improved this important element. First, its volume increased by 40%, respectively, increasing the cleaning time between emptying. Secondly, it has a black rubber skirt to separate the chamber of the first large cyclone from the garbage in the bottom. This design prevents the return of already collected debris back to the cyclone when the vacuum is tilted up.
Additionally, the company changed the design of the new vacuum. As known, the axis of the dust collector in previous models is located at an angle of 90 degrees to the axis of air flow.
But the V10 dust collector is coaxial to the air flow.
According to the company, this design reduces bends and air resistance. As a result, this factor additionally increases the suction power and reduces the noise level.
In addition, the novelty uses several engineering solutions that increase its usability.
For example, the model provides for emptying the dust collector by pressing a single button.
Moreover, a special red rubber skirt cleans the mesh from debris and pushes it out of the container.
A three-position switch on the body provides a choice of one of three power levels.
Additionally, a switch on the Torque Drive Motorhead regulates the optimal cleaning the different types of surfaces.
The functional, advanced docking station has a stylish design.
In addition to the main function, it provides convenient storage of nozzles.
The status indicators on the battery pack reflect the level of battery charge and the condition of the filters, including their presence / absence, proper installation and level of contamination.
Lithium-ion battery Dyson V10 contains an additional element, providing a higher voltage. But their total weight did not change due to a small decrease in each element.
The main wide brush has a relatively low profile and a hinge with two degrees of freedom, providing a vertical deflection of about 90 ° and a 180 ° rotation along the pipe.
It provides a comfortable cleaning under the furniture with clearance of 2,75 inches and above. Additionally, it has a layer of soft nylon and bristles made of antistatic carbon fiber for coarse debris and fine dust.
Testing basically confirmed all consumer qualities claimed by the company. The battery provided 5 minutes 45 seconds in high power mode with a combination nozzle and 22 minutes when working with a direct-drive electric brush in normal mode. Low power increased operating time to 55 minutes 30 seconds. Thus, the battery provides cleaning of about 430 sq ft at normal power with the use of electric brushes. High power is great for deep contamination in hard to reach places where electrical brushes are uncomfortable. Low power provides effective daily cleaning of a fairly large area. Charging time varies from 2 hours 40 minutes to 3 hours depending on the discharge degree. In fact, it was reduced by about 1 hour compared to the V8.
The noise level varies from 67 to 78 dB, depending on the nozzle type and power.
– stylish design;
– simple and convenient indication;
– a great set of effective attachments;
– comfortable roomy dust collector;
– high efficiency cyclone filter;
– effective post-engine filter;
– relatively high suction power;
– convenient docking station;
– flexible adjustment of power and operating modes.
– too short operating time in the maximum power mode;
– too slippery handle.
The new Dyson Cyclone V10 cord-free vacuum may well replace the traditional wired model. Of course, the increased volume of the dust collector with convenient emptying and the increased maximum suction power improve its consumer qualities. Unfortunately, the V10 is heavier and less convenient in the portable version compared to the V8.
