How my life change after buying Shark ion robot™ 750

I am a junior who often goes to school and participates in extracurricular activities, I usually spend time studying and improving my skills with internships. So I don't have much time to clean the house, as well as vacuum all the floors and carpets. Most of my friends recommend me to buy a robot vacuum that automatically works on itself so that I can rest assured about the cleaning. And then I learned about Shark Ion Robot Vacuum R75, the best assistant for me in doing housework. This robot vacuum has many special functions that suit the needs of a third-year student like me.

☞☞☞ Visit This Site: Shark ion robot 750 reviews [Image: 2fu9CPs.gif]

1. It can work on all surfaces

My apartment has area rugs scattered all over the place like the front door, the bathroom door, the bed front, etc. and the rest is hardwood floors. Before buying, I was very worried about whether today's automatic vacuum cleaners can suck on both carpeted floors and bare floors, and not knowing if there is a vacuum cleaner that can move from bare floor to carpet without stuck or not. But Shark Ion Vacuum can.

It has three different types of brush: side brush, multi-surface brush, and channel brush so that not only can it move freely on different types of floors, but it can also pick up all the dust and hair lying on the cleaning path it passes. I am a girl with long hair and I have a hair loss problem. But everything has been resolved when I own a Shark 750 Robot.

Now I just need to empty the robot vacuum and clean the roller after going home without having to spend extra time and effort cleaning.

2. It has a Wi-Fi connection and a Shark app

I love this feature! As I said at first, I don't usually stay at home so cleaning was quite difficult for me. However, since I bought the Shark Ion Robotic Vacuum, I have been able to clean up my house whether I am in class or doing activities with friends. Thanks to the Wi-Fi connection function and the Shark app, I can control it remotely and even set up a cleaning schedule specific to my apartment.

In addition, the shark ion robot also has voice control functionality, combined with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Although I find this function very interesting, I don't use it often because I am seldom at home to commanding it to work.

3. It automatically works

My life is very busy with studying and working, so I often forget to do many things. I also used to worry about charging my Shark robot vacuum because I often forget to charge my phone. But the Shark Ion Robot R75 Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity and Voice Control (Rv750) has the ability to recognize the battery status, so if the battery is low, it will automatically return to the dock to recharge.

It is also capable of automatically recognizing edges and steps, as well as recognizing surrounding furniture in the apartment to avoid collisions or falls. It is truly a very smart robot vacuum cleaner.

I have had great experiences with my shark ion robot 750 [Image: XxHxp2r.gif]. I bought it for about $150, although it's a bit expensive, I feel it was worth it. If you are too busy with work and do not have much time to clean the house like me, you should own a robotic vacuum to help you right away. I promise you won't be disappointed.

A Match Between 2 Shark Vacuums: Shark

NV370 vs. Shark NV360 review [Image: PMzUaX2.gif]

Shark vacuums have long established their positions as top-quality household appliances marketed at fairly affordable prices. Over the years, they have continuously been rolling out innovative models that can even go head to head with more expensive brands. In this article, we are going to compare two among the best from SharkNinja, Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360 and Shark

Navigator Lift-Away Professional NV370.

Design and Size

Taking in NV360 and NV370 for the first time, you will not find stark differences in their looks. Shark NV360 only comes in blue with grey accents, while NV370 can be spotted in white or silver.

Though these bagless vacuums almost have the same weight, Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV360 wins as the lighter one. Shark NV360 weighs merely 13 pounds, whereas its opponent weighs 13.7 pounds. At their modest weights, these two models both fall in the range of lightweight upright vacuums. It helps that their portability and maneuverability are boosted, so it is easy for users to lift and carry them around.

[Image: n4vVaGO.jpg]

In addition, these vacuums share many of the same Shark’s signature functions, including Swivel Steering and Lift-Away:

+ Lift-Away technology allows users to remove the detached canister from the base unit and use it as a handheld cleaning device. It feels like you get 2 vacuums at the price of 1. This also improves the vacuums’ efficiency when you attempt to pick up dirt in difficult places like tight corners or small stair steps.

+ With the Swivel Steering feature, it is more than easy to maneuver your Shark vacuum around all the furniture just by guiding the machine’s head with the least effort possible.

Not only Shark NV360 and Shark NV370 have similar designs, but they also do not seem to differ much in respect to their performance levels. These models inherit Shark’s development of impeccable cyclonic systems. They have somewhat equally powerful suction power which never wavers regardless of however long you have been running your machine. While our real test result has shown that Shark NV370, with minor updates, tends to deliver a slightly stronger suction, Shark NV360 is still an adequate choice at a relatively lower price. Almost all Shark owners have reported being satisfied with the machines’ incredible ability to suck up even the tiniest specks of dust from the carpet.

Another good news for people with a weak tolerance threshold to contaminatedair environments is that both Shark models are equipped with Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology and the HEPA filter that captures and completely seals 99.9% of dust inside.

Differences between NV360 and NV370

- Brush roll: The major difference between the blue Shark vacuum and its opponent lies in their type of brush roll. NV360 uses a standard brush roll, albeit NV370 uses a premium one that steps up its game with the Gentle Deep Clean Technology for better protection of the cleaning surfaces.

- Power cord length: NV370 has a longer power cord (30ft.) than NV360 (25ft.); thus it better serves people with limited access to power sockets.

- Dust cup capacity: The NV370 can hold a larger amount of dust (2.2 quarts) than the NV360 (1.2 quarts).

- Set of accessories: NV360 comes with a dusting brush, a pet hair brush, a crevice tool and an under-appliance wand. Meanwhile, NV370 has two 8” and 24” crevice tools, and a combined tool for cleaning bare floors and picking up pet hair.

In short, NV360 and NV370 are two comparable models that will likely meet your cleaning needs. At a more reasonable price, NV360 does have its edge over NV370 considering Shark’s uniform performance standard.

  Powder stabilization time and coating time limit
Posted by: nicholasktc - 06-25-2020, 07:47 AM - Forum: Surface Engineering Threads - Replies (1)


I am exploring the idea of automating HVOF coating in a mass production scale.

But currently, I have a few queries that I have not be able to sort out.

1. Powder stabilization time - how much time does it normally take for the powder feed rate to be stable upon "fire up", before it is good to start coating?

2. If were to do continuous spraying … is there a limit or guideline as to how long a gun is keep firing before it need to "rest".

Currently - most of the HVOF application that I have seen online, are batch processing .. would really appreciate is anyone can share with me, HVOF application in an automated setting.

Thank You
