Innovative Fan and Diffuser Design Makes New 5 4-Inch Diameter Vacuum Quieter and More Efficient

Friday, January 24, 2014

KENT, OH— The new 5.4-inch diameter vacuum motor from AMETEK Floorcare & Specialty Motors is designed with technology that allows it to operate 7dB and 10 Sones quieter than a comparable 5.1-inch diameter motor. In addition to an innovative fan-diffuser system, the motor features an improved motor lamination that increases its efficiency by between 30 and 40% and a novel commutator design that allows it to run cooler and reduces vibration. Overall, the new 5.4-inch diameter vacuum motor is more than a pound lighter than a comparable 5.7-inch version and half a pound lighter than even a 5.1-inch diameter model.

The new 5.4-inch diameter vacuum motor is well suited for a wide range of demanding vacuum motor applications, especially those where its light weight, compact size, and quieter, more efficient operation are key advantages. These include commercial back pack vacuums, small central vacuum products and other high-demand floor care appliances.
