As best illustrated in FIGS. 1 through 9, the lint removal system 10 generally comprises a housing 12 that has a top wall 13, a bottom wall 14, a front wall 15, a back wall 16, a first side wall 17 and a second side wall 18. Each of the front 15 and back 16 walls has an elongated opening 19, 20 therein. The openings 19, 20 are aligned with each other.
Does your dryer take forever? Don't call a repair man, and don't buy a new dryer. Get Dryer Max, the lint removal system, and reduce your drying time by up to 15 minutes. Sure, you clean the lint trap, but that's just the tip of the problem. Watch as our special, adjustable head brush digs deep. It's made of sure-grip fibers that attract lint like magic. THe large vent brushes made of stiff bristles scrape off the old, packed-on lint. All this lint chokes your dryer making it work harder, less efficient, over heat causing dangerous vent fires. Even jeans and towels dry faster with clean vents. Watch again. Remove the lint trap and place the brush right down into the vent path. You won't believe what's down there.

These and other advantages of the present invention are embodied in an automatic lint removal system in which a lint filtering screen and an air stream directing means for transmitting through the screen a relatively narrow air stream are relatively movable with respect to each other to thereby remove the lint from the screen. Means are also provided for collecting the removed lint and storing it in a reservoir. Several embodiments are disclosed, each using an air pressure differential, either positive or negative air pressure, to generate an air flow through portions of the lint filter screen in a direction opposite the dryer air flow. In a first and preferred embodiment, a circular lint filtering screen has a vacuum arm rotationally movable over a lint accumulating surface thereof. Lint from the screen is drawn into a shaped opening in the vacuum arm as it sweeps over the screen surface and is then drawn through a vacuum blower system and into a lint storage reservoir. The vacuum arm includes a beveled surface rotationally forward of the shaped opening to promote lint harvesting and a controlled air flow area through the vacuum arm to insure uniform removal of lint across the entire lint screen area. Recirculation of the lint vacuum air is also provided for increased energy efficiency.
