With the majority of the U.S. deep into the hot summer months, Dyson has the answer for weltering temperatures with the latest iteration of Dyson Air Multiplier technology. The AM02 Tower and AM03 Pedestal floor standing fans are designed to create uninterrupted breeze of cool air in larger spaces. The original Dyson Air Multiplier was introduced in October 2009 offering the first real innovation in more than 125 years. Its patented technology replaces fast spinning blades and awkward grilles with loop amplifiers. The machines draw air in at the base through a mixed flow impeller - a combination of the technologies used in turbochargers and jet engines.
From the base the air is forced into the loop amplifier and accelerated through the annular aperture, creating a jet of air that hugs the airfoil-shaped ramp. While exiting the loop amplifier, the jet pulls air from behind the fan into the airflow - inducement. At the same time, the surrounding air from the front and sides of the machine are forced into the air stream - entrainment, amplifying the flow to create a constant smooth air stream.
Unlike conventional fans with limited settings, Dyson Air Multiplier fans can be infinitely adjusted up or down. The new tower and pedestal fans offer precise airflow and oscillation control and can be adjusted remotely. Air Multiplier technology is an easier to clean and safer way to keep cool this summer. The oval shaped Dyson AM02 Tower fan stands less than three feet tall and is barely a foot wide. Drawing in nearly nine gallons of air per second, the machine amplifies the air 16 times creating a smooth and cooling airflow.
With an extension of 8.6 inches, the AM03 Pedestal the largest of all Dyson Air Multiplier fans and takes in nearly nine gallons of air per second, amplifying the air by 18 times for use in larger areas including living rooms and offices. Both AM02 and AM03 Air Multiplier fans retail for a MSRP of $450 and are available from Dyson online store and select retailers across the U.S.
