Reverse Engineering: Vacuum Design Alexander Hyatt ME 222 Laboratory Submitted to: Adam Greer/Swathi Chimalapati September 19, 2007 In this exercise, two household vacuum cleaners are disassembled and reassembled for the purpose of studying the designs of each unit. A Bissell brand and Eureka brand vacuum cleaner are deconstructed one at a time, according to a set of predetermined instructions. The objective of the exercise is to gain knowledge of each individual design, and to draw comparisons between the two units in terms of the air paths, manufacturability, and ease of maintenance. The first criterion to discuss is the air paths of each unit. Both designs are clean designs because the dirt never directly touches the blower in either design. The Bissell brand vacuum contained an air flow system that proved to be quite simple. Pressure differences within the body of the vacuum cause air to flow in through the brush area. From this point, the air passes through a long plastic hose into a bag, which filters the air.
