James Dyson is about to make headlines once again. You’d probably be hard pressed to find anyone who hasn’t seen his famous face in a TV commercial, starting about 20 years ago, telling us how inefficient vacuums are because they lose suction because of this culprit – the ugly dirty dusty vacuum bag. And now there’s a new story.
Back in 1993, Dyson realized that bagged vacuums lost suction as the bag’s pores clogged even before it was full. So they did away with them by introducing cyclonic technology that spins the dirt right into a bin. The technology evolved over time but they realized that they were still losing suction - the blame now was put on the clogged filter that was still necessary to capture the dust. Fast forward two decades and the filter, which we hate to clean or change and is also a culprit in the war against suction loss, is now too going the way of the dodo bird.
No More Filters
Dyson is making this possible by the introduction of their next generation vacuum in North America that uses its newly patented Dyson Cinetic cyclone technology.
“Getting rid of bags solved the frustration of my vacuum losing suction. But washing filters – or worse – buying them, is still a nuisance. Dyson Cinetic cyclones are so efficient at separating microscopic particles that everything gets thrust into the bin, and you can forget about fussy filters,” says James Dyson.
