VacuMaid® power units use cyclonic separation. Pure cyclonic action is an impressive alternative to filtering dirt and like most great ideas, it’s simple. Our cyclonic system allows large heavy particles to fall into a dirt canister at the bottom of the main power unit. Fine particles are exhausted outside, with no detours or stopping points. This means no traditional filters to clog or clean. It also means virtually 100% sustained cleaning power. This is because without the restriction of a dirty cloth, paper, or foam filter, you get more consistent cleaning power at the end of the hose. The result? A cleaner house with longer carpet life and less professional cleaning.
VacuMaid® has the only central vacuum system on the market that allows a can liner to be used. This feature is available due to VacuMaid’s® patented Air Channel. By having this added feature, emptying the can is less hassle and less mess. By using a plastic bag can liner, there are no more clouds of dust billowing up in your face when you empty the dirt can. Just tie it up and toss it into the garbage.
One Piece Power Units
This traditional one piece design houses the Ametek motor and electrical components in the top compartment. The middle of the unit is where the cyclonic action separates fine particles from the larger debris. The fine particles are vented to the outside while the larger debris is deposited in the dirt can below. The bottom can has the plastic liner so the debris can easily be emptied periodically.
Split Canister Power Units
The VacuMaid® split canisters are the most unique central vacuum on the market. With the power unit separate from the dirt canister you can place the two in separate locations. It is best that the power unit be placed in a remote location to further reduce any motor noise and place the dirt canister where it is easily accessible. These units use ultra long life motors for superior performance. Split canister systems are especially good for people with pets. With the split system most of the hair is collected in the bottom can, but some may make its way to the top screen. This screen can easily be cleaned by removing the top lid and wiping away the hair. With bag systems hair from pets will easily clog the bag reducing its performance and cleaning ability. The bottom cans feature plastic liner for clean and easy emptying.
