  • Patent number: 11517166
    Abstract: A dirt separator for a vacuum cleaner includes a chamber having an inlet through which dirt-laden fluid enters and an outlet through which cleansed fluid exits the chamber. A disc located at the outlet rotates about a rotational axis and comprises holes through which the cleansed fluid passes. The inlet is defined by an end of an inlet duct that extends within the chamber, and a separation distance between the centre of the inlet and the centre of the disc is no greater than the diameter of the inlet.

  • Publication number: 20200359865
    Abstract: A dirt separator for a vacuum cleaner including a chamber having an inlet through which dirt-laden fluid enters the chamber and an outlet through which cleansed fluid exits the chamber; and a disc located at the outlet, the disc being arranged to rotate about a rotational axis and including holes through which the cleansed fluid passes. The disc includes a first region in which a first array of said holes is provided, and a second region, radially outward of the first region, in which a second array of said holes is provided. Each hole of the second array has a larger cross-sectional area than each hole of the first array.

  • Publication number: 20200214520
    Abstract: A dirt separator for a vacuum cleaner includes a chamber having an inlet through which dirt-laden fluid enters and an outlet through which cleansed fluid exits the chamber. A disc located at the outlet rotates about a rotational axis and comprises holes through which the cleansed fluid passes. The disc comprises a perforated region and a non-perforated region. The holes are then formed in the perforated region, and the width of the non-perforated region is no less than the diameter of the inlet.

  • Publication number: 20200170464
    Abstract: A dirt separator for a vacuum cleaner including a chamber having an inlet through which dirt-laden fluid enters the chamber and an outlet through which cleansed fluid exits the chamber; and a disc located at the outlet, the disc being arranged to rotate about a rotational axis and including holes through which the cleansed fluid passes. When viewed normal to the disc, each hole is elongate and defines a longitudinal axis which runs within the plane of the disc. The longitudinal axis of each hole is inclined relative to the radial direction of the disc.

  • Publication number: 20200163508
    Abstract: A dirt separator for a vacuum cleaner includes: a chamber within which dirt separated by the dirt separator collects, a duct that extends within the chamber; and a flange that extends outwardly from the duct. The chamber is delimited by a bottom wall and a side wall. The bottom wall is moveable relative to the side wall between an open position and a closed position. The duct is attached to and moveable with the bottom wall, and at least a part of the flange is flexible.

  • Publication number: 20200163510
    Abstract: A dirt separator for a vacuum cleaner including a chamber having an inlet through which dirt-laden fluid enters the chamber and an outlet through which cleansed fluid exits the chamber; and a disc located at the outlet, the disc being arranged to rotate in a predetermined direction about a rotational axis, and including holes running from an upstream face to a downstream face through which the cleansed fluid passes. When viewed along the radial direction of the disc, the path of each hole through the thickness of the disc defines a centreline, the centreline being inclined such that it is non-perpendicular to the disc. The centreline of each hole is inclined such that it intersects the upstream face of the disc at a point which is behind, in the direction of rotation of the disc, the point at which the centreline intersects the downstream face of the disc.

  • Publication number: 20200163509
    Abstract: A dirt separator including a chamber having an inlet through which dirt-laden fluid enters the chamber and an outlet through which cleansed fluid exits the chamber, and a disc located at the outlet, the disc being arranged to rotate about a rotational axis and including holes through which the cleansed fluid passes. The holes are distributed over at least first and second regions of the disc, the second region being radially outward of the first region. The porosity of the second region is higher than the porosity of the first region.
