Dyson DC50 Ball Compact Upright Vacuum, Blue
DC50 is Dyson’s lightest upright vacuums. It weighs just 11.6 lbs. but performs like a full-size upright. The technology inside has not simply been shrunk, but concentrated with every angle and dimension re-engineered.
Four key technologies combine to give DC50 Dyson’s most advanced cleaner head to date. The cleaner head self-adjusts for optimal contact on every floor type. The brush bar has a mixture of stiff nylon bristles and carbon fiber filaments. On carpets, the nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt, and on hard floors the ultra-fine carbon fiber filaments remove fine dust. Like all Dyson vacuums, DC50 has no bag, so there’s no loss of suction. Instead, patented cyclone technology spins dust, dirt and pet hair from the air. With 2 Tier Radial cyclones, DC50 has 19 cyclones that work in parallel across two tiers to capture microscopic particles from the airflow.
Patented Dyson Technology
Dyson engineers are constantly testing and inventing, trying to find new ways to make their technology work better. As they work, they file patent applications to protect their inventions from copycat manufacturers. That's why the only place you'll find Dyson technology is inside a Dyson machine.
Root Cyclone technology for No Loss of Suction Ordinary vacuum cleaners rely on bags and filters to trap dust and dirt. Air is meant to flow through tiny holes, leaving dust and dirt behind. The problem is that these tiny holes quickly clog up with particles of dust. This chokes the flow of air, so the vacuum cleaner loses suction. Dyson vacuum cleaners don't rely on bags to trap dust and dirt. They use patented Root Cyclone technology, which spins the air at incredibly high speeds. The cyclones inside a Dyson vacuum cleaner generate centrifugal forces many thousands of times the force of gravity. Dust, dirt and pet hair are flung out of the airflow and straight into the clear bin. No bags, no loss of suction.
In Dyson DC50 upright vacuum, 19 cyclones work in parallel across two tiers, creating both high centrifugal forces and high airflow. With gravimetric efficiencies of over 99%, they capture particles as small as 0.5 microns..
Ball Technology to Help You Steer with Ease Have you ever gotten frustrated pushing an ordinary upright vacuum cleaner back and forth, back and forth to steer around furniture and other obstacles? Have a look underneath it, and you'll see that's because it sits on fixed wheels – perfect if all you want to do is travel in a straight line, but not so good at corners. Frustration is an important source of invention for Dyson engineers – it sparks new ideas, and new ways of solving problems. It was their frustration with fixed wheels that led them to develop a new way of turning corners.
Dyson Ball vacuum cleaners use patented Ball technology to overcome the steering limitations of fixed wheels. They ride on a ball, which pivots around itself so you can steer with ease, changing direction with just a turn of the wrist. The idea for Ball technology came about from a Dyson engineer studying new ways to steer. It started crudely - an old wand handle attached to a wheel. Eventually the wheel became a ball - and an ideal home for the motor.
The ball itself is made of glass-reinforced polypropylene – the same material used in the manufacture of car dashboards. It combines high impact strength with resistance to distortion. The ball is also where you'll find the motor. By putting the motor inside the ball, at a neutral point, Dyson engineers were able to lower the machine's center of gravity and improve maneuverability even further.
Self-adjusting Cleaner Head: Seals in suction across carpets and hard floors. The motorized brush bar with stiff nylon bristles drives deep into carpet to remove ground-in dirt. An active base plate automatically adjusts the cleaner head height to seal in suction across carpets and hard floors. This ensures that even the microscopic particles between floorboards are sucked up into the vacuum.
Anti-static Carbon Fiber Filaments: Anti-static carbon fiber filaments prevent the build up of static charge that holds fine dust to hard floors – allowing the dust to be sucked up into the vacuum.
Lightweight and Compact: The Dyson DC50 Compact vacuum is Dyson’s smallest upright vacuum cleaner, so it’s light to carry and can be stored in small spaces. Despite its small size, it performs like a full-sized upright. The technology inside has not simply been ‘shrunk’, but concentrated – every angle and dimension re-engineered.
Clear bin lets you see when it needs emptying: The bin on a Dyson vacuum cleaner is transparent so you can see when it needs emptying, and just how much dust, dirt and pet hair your new Dyson machine has picked up. Emptying is quick and hygienic- just press the button to release the dirt.
No extra costs: Other vacuum cleaners are still designed to need replacement bags and filter. Dyson vacuum cleaners don't need bags and have washable filters, so there are no extra costs.
Approved for allergy sufferers: All Dyson upright and canister vacuums are certified asthma & allergy friendly by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America.
