The Working Mechanism Of A Vacuum Cleaner

The Working Mechanism Of A Vacuum Cleaner

A device that sucks dirt from floors, upholstery, draperies and other surfaces is known as a vacuum cleaner. It is generally electrically driven. The dirt is collected in either a dust bag or a cyclone for later disposal. The Vacuum cleaners used in homes as well as in industry exist in a variety of sizes and models. Most of the vacuum cleaners are used to suck up both dust and liquids.

Working mechanism

The dyson cyclone V10 cordless vacuum cleaner has the most powerful suction of any cordless vacuum cleaner. It has a full-sized suction power and a 40% bigger dirt bin for bigger cleans. One of the simplest ways to explain how the vacuum cleaner can suck up dirt and contaminated soil is to think of it like a straw.

When a sip of drink is taken through a straw, this action of sucking creates a negative air pressure inside the straw. A pressure that is lower than that of the surrounding atmosphere is known as negative pressure. Similar to space films, where a hole in the spaceship’s hull sucks people into space, a vacuum cleaner creates a negative pressure inside, which causes a flow of air into it.

Electric Motor

The vacuum cleaner uses an electric motor that spins a fan that sucks in air and any small particles caught up in it and push it out the other side, into a bag or a canister, to create the negative pressure. People might assume that the process would stop working after a few seconds since one can only force so much air into a confined space. To solve this problem, the vacuum has an exhaust port that throws the air out the other side and this allows the motor to continue functioning normally.
