Following the launch of the original desk model of Air Multiplier fan, Dyson has developed two new Dyson Air Multiplier fans: the AM02 Tower and the AM03 Pedestal. These floor standing models are designed for larger spaces as they produce a greater airflow than the previous model – the AM03 Pedestal generates 50% more airflow than the AM01 Desk fan. Both machines come with a magnetised remote control.
“The Air Multipier fans are examples of Dyson’s ongoing innovation which is also reflected by the fact that we are planning to double the number of our engineers from 350 to 700,” commented James Dyson to IER.
Dyson Air Multiplier fans draw air in through a mixed flow impeller – a combination of the technologies used in turbochargers and jet engines. Only 7% of the air generated by the fans passes through the impeller, 93% results from drawing in and moving the surrounding air. Air is accelerated through an annular aperture set within the loop amplifier. This creates a jet of air which passes over an airfoil-shaped ramp and channels its direction.
The AM02 Tower fan is one metre high and only 19 centimetres wide. 33 litres of air are drawn through a mixed flow impeller every second and amplified 16 times. The AM03 Pedestal fan draws in 33 litres of air per second and amplifies the air 18 times. The general retail distribution of the fans is planned for late 2010.
