Orbital Force In Washing Clothes

What are your steps for laundry at home? Sorting clothes in separate baskets, loading the washer with the first batch and then adjusting the detergent…finally get the washed batch out into a basket and dry em up. Load the next! How about cutting a few steps in the process, revamping the concept of washing machines and getting you an Orbital? The machine-drum here is the basket…two baskets actually, white for the whites and blue for the color clothes. So in practice you sort the clothes as and when you discard them, load the drum and carry that same very drum to the drying lines, after the washing is done!

The goodness doesn’t end here, the spherical drum fit in such a way that they pivot on two axes, surging the clothes in all directions for a faster and more energy efficient wash. Plus they can be lifted out of the washing machine making loading and unloading of clothes easier.

Once the drum is inserted into the machine the solenoid valve is activated and engages the drive. The drive rotates the drum and the weight of the clothes spinning would then rotate around in another direction. As the drum rotates in all directions a centrifugal force is acting on the drum. As the drum spins it forces the clothes to stick to the inner sides of the drum allowing the water to pass through and efficiently washes the clothes.

In a conventional washing machine a large amount of energy is needed to drive the drum through the water, however in orbital the water is pumped through and sprayed out on to the drum through a shower which surrounds the tub. The drum would require less energy to spin through the water and less water in needed as it is being continually pumped around and sprayed.

The detergent tray is unique too; it’s been designed to release just the right amount of washing powder / liquid per wash, depending upon the load and water.

    By looking at the ratio of the user and the drum, the drum seems pretty small. Wonder how much load can be loaded.

    And i wonder how easy to insert the drum into the

    washer, i do not wish to hold the load while trying

    to aim the right position to insert the drum.

    The last thing would be the cloth ( drum ), it is

    troublesome to open the door everytime i want to throw my cloth into the basket, it creates inconvinience for everyone at home.

      I would say judging by the design of the flat holding thing, you use it as a hamper then when about 2 or 3 days of clothes have filled it, you just close it and load the ball/hamper in, it measures the weight, uses the water and picks the right ammount of soap, and you get it back then dump out the 3 days of clothes into the dryer. I think if large households had multiple hampers that could be loaded and laundry was done often (imagining these machines are pretty eco friendly on water and soap) it would be good. And GREAT for small 1,2, or 3 people households.

    there is no centrifugal force.

    Perhaps it could come with a couple of housing options for the baskets when they acting as laundry hampers:

    A higher base – this would save having to constantly bend over or squat to put clothes in it. Transferring the basket to the machine would be easier too.

    A wall mountable bracket – this would provide an option for those with limited floor space.

    Good designs of that orbit force washing machine i like it.

  • Emiley says:

    Well its good technology and it has nice features that you posted.

  • Diya says:

    Good design but there is a no force and how to clean the clothes.

  • Mr Walter says:

    The use of the orbital force in washing the cloth will gone save the water and energy.

  • Kate says:

    Good designs!!but the ball is too small so we can not wash clothes like carpet or many more clothes..and for that it takes so energy..
