The new Dyson Cinetic DC54i – The only vacuum with no loss of suction!


Dyson has recently released their new cylinder cleaner; the Dyson Cinetic DC54, also known as the DC54 ANIMAL and DC54 Multi Floor. With its shiny appearance, improved carbon fibre turbine head and the first vacuum with truly no loss of suction, this may be Dyson’s best cleaner yet!

To truly appreciate and understand what makes this cleaner so good, we need to look back at where it all began.

James Dyson was inspired by Tomas Edison’s vision “If there’s a way to do it better… find it”, and this is ever present in the way he encourages his engineers to look at things.


Dyson Cinetic DC54iThe year is 1993, and Dyson Ltd. has just been set up – a research centre and factory in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. Here James Dyson and his team worked on creating the best vacuum cleaner using cyclone technology – based on something he saw in a nearby sawmill – a 30 foot high cone that spun dust out of the air by centrifugal force to expel waste. He reasoned that a vacuum cleaner that could separate dust by cyclonic action and spin it out of the air stream would eliminate the need for both bag and filter.

5,127 prototypes later, Dyson introduced the DC01 – a dual cyclone vacuum cleaner which would change the way we clean.

With this cleaner, Dyson would use their new slogan: “We’ve Said Goodbye to the Bag”, which proved more attractive to the buying public than a previous emphasis on the suction efficiency that its technology delivered.


But what made this cleaner stand out from the rest?
To answer this, we first need to understand how a vacuum cleaner works.

Dyson Cinetic DC54i



Vacuum cleaners are simple in theory – dirt and air are drawn from the base. Dirt is then removed using a separation system and air is then expelled out of an exhaust.

So in a bagged machine, the bag and filters act as the separation system:

  • Dirt and fluff goes into a bag
  • Fine dirt clogs the pores of the bag
  • Bags stop working and need replacing

Result: they lose suction. This inefficient system also means dusty air is released back into the room.

When it comes to bagless vacuums, they work on a similar basis – the only difference is that the filter acts as the separation system along with poor cyclone technology.

  • They trap dirt inside the filter
  • Fine dirt clogs the filter
  • Filters stop working and need replacing

Result: they lose suction. This inefficient system also means dusty air is released back into the room.


The success of the DC01 was due to the amount of money we would save by not having to buy cleaner bags. The use of a filter, however, still meant that maintenance was needed to ensure proper suction.

A “No loss of suction” graph was used to show Dyson was the ONLY vacuum cleaner that didn’t lose suction. This graph was based on IEC testing to one bin full of dust. It was the standard set by Dyson at the time – one no other could match.

Recently some competitor manufacturers have ‘caught up’ with Dyson based on the existing IEC test standards set 20 years ago. The problem with this is that one bin full of dust is unrealistic when you consider how many bins are filled during the cleaning of a home.

Whilst Dyson technology has continued to improve over the past 20 years – the standard has not changed. It needs to. And Dyson is working on it.

While we wait – all machines, both bagged and bagless, lose suction because they require either a bag to be changed or a filter to be cleaned. However they can claim No loss of suction based on the 20 year old IEC test standard.

All Dyson machines currently available perform above and beyond the IEC test standard. But they too require filter maintenance.

The challenge was now set to develop a new type of cyclone technology that will never lose suction in its lifetime and no longer needs a filter that requires maintenance…

In 1993, Dyson removed the bag…

In 2014, Dyson removed the filter, giving us the Dyson DC54 – the first vacuum cleaner with NO loss of suction by utilising a new development by Dyson called Cinetic™ Technology!

Cinetic™ cyclone technology represents a breakthrough in cyclone technology – the biggest advancement since Dyson’s first cyclone invention. Tested on 10 years worth of dust, this cleaner will not lose suction and will never have to change a filter either as there is none!


So, how does this work?

The DC54 features 54 tightly packed and high efficient cyclones – 18 intermediary cyclones and 36 radial cyclones; all with flexible oscillating tips. It’s these oscillating tips that prevent dust from being clogged and giving us our cleaner with truly NO LOSS OF SUCTION!

Along with this new development, the DC54 also features Ball™ technology giving us the most manoeuvrable product in the market.

As if that wasn’t enough to make this cleaner stand out, Dyson have also reconfigured the turbine head, which now features more carbon fibre bristles than ever before for improved hard floor pick up.



Why do I think everyone will be wanting to get their hands on one of these?

• Dyson’s Cyclone technology captures more dust than any other

• Dyson’s new Cinetic Cyclone technology prevent clogging via the flexible oscillating tips

• Over 10 years bagged vacuums can require up to 120 replacement bags and 10 filters costing up to £500 – you will not need to spend any of this with the DC54i!

• Ball™ technology – a central steering mechanism for greater control and no awkward moves

• Dyson machines are built from the toughest material such as polycarbonate and abs plastics

• The DC54i expels cleaner air than any other and is approved by Allergy Suisse and the British Allergy Foundation

All other vacuums lose suction without maintenance. Bags need to be changed, filters need to be washed or replaced. The DC54i will never lose suction in its lifetime. DC54i has been tested with 10 years’ worth of test dust and no filter maintenance, DC54 maintains constant suction. This achievement has been made possible by Dyson Cinetic™ Cyclones
