Back Pack Vacuum
Lighter, More Powerful and Quieter Back Pack Vacuums

Higher Lift Lower CFM 5.4 Integrated Diffuser
AMETEK has developed a new motor which will benefit the commercial back pack market. The new 5.4" Integrated diffuser leverages higher efficiency fan designs and with an integrated diffuser with noise canceling to make the unit quieter.

What does this mean to the commercial floorcare employee?

This motor generates similar performance as traditional pack pack vacuums, but does it in a smaller lighter package. This motor weighs about a pound less, making the back pack user experience that much better. The motor incorporates a noise canceling diffuser and fan design, where the blade pass frequency created between the rotating fan and primary diffuser is canceled because of the primary and
secondary diffuser design. This motor is 7dB and 10 Sones quieter than the equivalent performing 5.1. Users of these new light back packs will love the experience and enjoy a quieter vacuum.

Eternity Brushes 

Higher CFM Lower Lift Eternity Brush 4.8
This motor offers an even slightly smaller package than the 5.4" It is 8 ozs lighter than the 5.4" and comes with AMETEK's ETERNITY brushes. These brushes will provide up to two times+ the life of the traditional straight brush. In the case of 8 amp performance it can deliver on average of 3000 hours of life from a single set of brushes. When the performance is pushed to a 12 amp level the motor yields on average 1500 hours of life. What does this mean to a janitorial service company? More uptime. Rather than having vacuums down for servicing and brush replacement the user continues working until the brushes are completely worn, signaling that the motor has reached it's end of life. Based on a cost of $15 per set of brushes and the cost of a service call to change the brushes, the savings is about $50 per motor based on a minumum of two brush changes.
