   The Dyson Fan represents a major breakthrough in fan technology and efficiency. Instead of the normal fan blades spinning around, the Dyson Fan doesn't use that method at all. In fact there are no blades in the Dyson fan, only a small base and a circular ring where the air comes from.

   An impeller system similar to that used in jet engines catches the air at the bottom of the fan, compresses it and then sends it to the upper ring. The air taken in is multiplied 15 times and then released in a very directional pattern. 

Dyson Fans

   For a more detailed explanation see the diagram below.


   The Dyson fan works by drawing air into the base at up to 27 liters per second using a jet engine turbine style system. The air is then channeled through a small slit in the circular ring on top and released at up to 55mph. As you can see in the diagram on the right, the air coming from the Dyson Fan is much more stable than from a conventional fan and thus travels much farther and with greater efficiency.

   The air is blown forward through the ring and out towards the front while the air surrounding the ring is drawn into the airflow as well. 15 times as much air ends up in the air flow as actually passes through the turbine itself, making it super efficient.

  Up to 5.28 gallons of air per second is drawn in by an energy-efficient brushless motor. A combination of the technologies used in superchargers and jet engines generates a powerful airflow. Because of it's unique design there is virtually no noise except the light hum of the motor in the base. It’s also especially safe for kids as there are no visible moving parts or dangerous fan blades.
 The Dyson Fan pivots on it’s own center of gravity which allows you to customize the direction of airflow exactly where you want it. It can be tilted up or down depending on your personal preference.
  The Fan has a front mounted dimmer style power control which means that you are not limited to just a low or high setting. By turning the knob you can adjust the amount of air being delivered thanks to a very efficient internal brushless motor.

The illustrations below explain how the Dyson Fan works



Here is a fantastic YouTube video showing off the fans capabilities.


We would like to thank the Dyson Company for their help and support.
