Title (EN) VACUUM CLEANER UPRIGHT ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE VERTICAL D'ASPIRATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A vacuum cleaner comprises a primary support section that provides a modular platform for connecting different vacuum cleaner assemblies, such as different base assemblies, handle assemblies, and dirt separation assemblies. The primary support section comprises a motor and filter casing that houses a motor/fan assemble, a pre-motor filter assembly, and a post-motor filter assembly. The casing is formed in two parts that having integrally formed chambers for the motor/fan assembly, pre-motor filter assembly, and post-motor filter assembly and integrally formed ducts for fluid communication between the chambers. Several accessory tools, including a multi-purpose upholstery tool having a removable bristle block with different types of agitators are disclosed. The bristle block can selectively be used with the upholstery tool and can be orientated so that a desired agitator is in position to engage a surface to be cleaned.
(FR) La présente invention a trait à un aspirateur comportant une section de support principal qui fournit une plate-forme modulaire pour la connexion d'ensembles d'aspirateur différents, tels que des ensembles de socle, des ensembles de manche, et des ensembles de séparation de poussières différents. La section de support principal comporte un moteur et un boîtier de filtre qui renferme un ensemble moteur/ventilateur, un ensemble de filtre pré-moteur, et un ensemble de filtre post-moteur. Le boîtier est formé en deux parties qui comprennent des enceintes formées intégralement pour l'ensemble moteur/ventilateur, l'ensemble de filtre pré-moteur, et l'ensemble de filtre post-moteur et des conduits formés intégralement pour la communication fluidique entre les enceintes. L'invention a également trait à une pluralité d'outils accessoires, comprenant une brosse à meubles polyvalent comportant un bloc de soies amovible avec différents types d'agitateurs. Le bloc de soies peut être utilisé de manière sélective avec la brosse à meubles et peut être orienté de sorte qu'un agitateur souhaité soit dans une position pour l'engagement de la surface à nettoyer.
