Abstract:
Disclosed is a hand held appliance comprising a body, a fluid flow path extending through the body from a fluid inlet through which a fluid flow enters the appliance to a fluid outlet for emitting the fluid flow from the appliance, a primary fluid flow path extending at least partially through the body from a second fluid inlet through which a primary fluid flow enters the appliance to a second fluid outlet, and a heater located in the body for heating fluid passing through the primary fluid flow path, wherein the heater is inaccessible from the fluid inlet. The heater may be inaccessible from the second fluid inlet. The second fluid inlet may be located in the body. The fluid inlet may be spaced from the second fluid inlet. Also disclosed is an appliance comprising a body defining a bore extending through the body, the bore defining a fluid flow path extending from a fluid inlet through which a fluid flow enters the appliance to a fluid outlet for emitting the fluid flow from the appliance, a primary fluid flow path extending at least partially through the body from a second fluid inlet to a second fluid outlet, and a heater located in the body for heating fluid passing through the primary fluid flow path, wherein each of the fluid inlet and the second fluid inlet is located on an external surface of the body, and wherein the fluid inlet is spaced from the second fluid inlet.
