Vacuum Cleaner Technology

Pioneering technologies.

The Dyson digital motor V10.

The smallest, lightest, yet strongest vacuum cleaner motor Dyson has ever produced. Its ceramic shaft is sintered at 1,600°C to make it three times harder than steel, yet with half the density. With the impeller moved from the front of motor to the back, axial flow draws in cooler air to reduce the temperature and allow the motor to spin at up to 125,000rpm.


  • Layers of paper-thin laminated steel generate magnetic fields to spin the motor.


  • G-force generated inside each of the 14 cyclones.


  • Patents and patents pending on Dyson Cyclone V10™ technologies globally.

Dyson Cyclone V10™ vacuum cleaner cyclone array

14 cyclones.

Generating forces of more than 79,000g, the vacuum cleaner flings microscopic particles – such as pollen and even bacteria – into the bin. By arranging each of the 14 cyclones concentrically around the central axis of the machine, air flows more efficiently through it. As the cyclones narrow, air is accelerated from 45mph to 120mph to create the centrifugal forces that capture fine particles.

7-cell, energy-dense battery.

The Dyson Cyclone V10™ vacuum cleaner’s lithium-ion battery has one more cell than the Dyson V8™ vacuum, to run at a higher voltage and create more power. But because each of the seven high-capacity, nickel-cobalt-aluminum cathodes is slightly smaller, there’s no additional weight. Innate LED system diagnostics and altitude sensors enable the machine to automatically optimize power to the cleaner head at all times. So power doesn't fade.

Comparing the V8 and V10 vacuum cleaners

In-line configuration.

The ‘point and shoot’ alignment of the motor, bin and cyclone allows air to be drawn directly from the cleaner head into the cyclones in a straight line. This, combined with the more powerful Dyson digital motor V10, increases suction to 20% more than the Dyson V8™ vacuum cleaner.

Airflow inside Dyson V10 vacuum cleaner

Whole-machine filtration.

With an airtight gasket around the vacuum cleaner cyclone assembly and a pressurized rubber seal around the advanced filter, the whole system is fully sealed – preventing dust, allergens and bacteria from leaking back into the air. This means the vacuum retains 99.99% of dust as small as 0.3 microns, and expels cleaner air.‡ Pre- and post-motor filters are combined into one unit for easier maintenance.

Acoustically engineered.

An aerodynamic vacuum cleaner motor housing regulates airflow paths around the motor, reducing noisy turbulence. It’s combined with acoustic material to absorb vibrations, a post-motor filter that dampens sound, and an acoustic baffle which further reduces volume by blocking the line of sight to the sound source.
