Say goodbye to the blade

James Dyson, the inventor of the first bagless vacuum cleaner, has reinvented the fan. Say goodbye to the blade and buffeting.

The blades on conventional electric fans literally chop the air, which means the airflow is uneven, causing unpleasant buffeting.

The Dyson Air Multiplier fan has no blades. Instead, it uses Air Multiplier technology to amplify air 15 times, expelling 405 litres of cool, smooth and uninterrupted air every second.

Air is accelerated through an annular aperture set within the loop amplifier. This creates a jet air which passes over an airfoil-shaped ramp that channels its direction. The surrounding air is drawn into the airflow (this is called inducement and entrainment).

Dyson’s fluid dynamics engineers ran hundreds of simulations to measure and map airflow, allowing them to precisely optimize how the Dyson Air Multiplier Fan works.

Dyson Air Multiplier fanThe Dyson Air Multiplier is powered by an efficient brushless motor and air speed can be precisely adjusted with a dimmer-switch control. Fans with blades are only wired to run at just two or three settings.

No blades mean there isn’t a need for a grille. So, it is easy to clean and it is safe. And because its motor is at its base, the Dyson Air Multiplier can be tilted with a touch, unlike a conventional top-heavy fan, which needs to be positioned with two hands and can topple easily.

“I’ve always been disappointed by fans. Their spinning blades chop up the airflow, causing annoying buffeting. They’re hard to clean. And children always want to poke their fingers through the grille. So we’ve developed a new type of fan that doesn’t use blades,” said Dyson.

Dyson Air Multiplier fan comes in different sizes and colours to suit different needs. Take your pick from the table fan (AMOI), tower fan (AMO2) or pedestal fan (AMO3).

The facts about Dyson Air Multiplier Fan:

No buffeting

The blades on conventional fans cause unpleasant buffeting because they chop the air. Air Multiplier technology gives an uninterrupted stream of air that doesn’t distract or buffet you.


With its simple loop the Dyson Air Multiplier fan is quickly wiped clean with a cloth. Fans with blades are nigh on impossible to clean, with dust and dirt building up inside the cage. The same dust and dirt is then billowed into your face when the fan is switched on.


Unlike top-heavy conventional fans, the Dyson Air Multiplier fan has an energy-efficient motor at its base, meaning it has a low centre of gravity and doesn’t topple over.


You have to use two hands to position a fan with blades. The Dyson Air Multiplier fan uses energy-efficient brushless motor, which means air speed can be precisely adjusted up or down. The airflow control allows people to pick their perfect airflow.

Oscillation Control

To oscillate a conventional fan you have to hold it steady, pull the toggle and watch it judder. Oscillating the Dyson Air Multiplier fan through 90° is simple. Just press the button.


The Dyson Air Multiplier fan is constructed from tough Arcrylontride butadiene styrene – ABS (C8H8 C4H6 C3H3N). ABS is a tough thermoplastic used to make light, rigid, and mould products. It has shock absorbing properties and is used to make car bumpers, crash helmets and modern golf club heads. It’s also used in Dyson’s vacuum cleaners and hair dryers.

Dyson vacuums and the Dyson Airblade hand dryers have garnered a never-ending list of awards from good design innovation awards to environmental awards that are awarded to organization developing innovative carbon-cutting solutions.

The Dyson Airblade hand dryer is the fastest and most hygienic hand dryer that is used at the London Eye, Eiffel Tower, Los Angeles Airport, Melbourne Airport and at Bangsar Village Shopping Centre in Kuala Lumpur.
