Vacuum Equipment and System Terms
A satisfactory vacuum is an important cleaning tool for removing dirt, dust, hair and allergens. Before shopping for and cleaning with a vacuum, there are some terms you may want to be familiar with.
Activated Charcoal – Activated charcoal is charcoal that has been heat treated to remove impurities. Activated charcoal can be an effective filtering material.
Beater Bar – A beater bar is used to work dirt and debris up from surfaces. Instead of this piece of equipment, stiff brushes could also be attached to the spinning brush roll to produce the same result.
Brush Roll – The brush roll of a vacuum is what loosens dirt and debris from a surface, allowing the equipment to clean. Commercial upright vacuums typically use brush rolls with bristles. Rather than bristles, a beater bar could be attached to a brush roll.
Clean Air Design – Clean air design actually refers to the air entering a vacuum, not the air leaving it. This term means that the system filters incoming air before it reaches the fans. This design prevents damage to parts from dirt and debris.
Electrostatic Filter – An electrostatic filter can be used in commercial and industrial units to cleanse a room’s air of even tiny bits of dust and other allergens. It is the static electric buildup in the vacuum’s filtration system that attracts debris.
Standard Inlet Valve – This is where a hose is attached to a vacuum pump. Typically, this term applies to shop vacuums and other stationary industrial units.
Water Lift – Water lift is used to gauge a vacuum pump’s suction power. How high water travels up the vacuum’s hose during operation is the amount of water lift the unit possesses. This measurement is done in inches.
Vacuum equipment and systems can include industrial pumps, excavators, air bags, belts, hoses, brushes, and gauges. You can save money by finding a discount store that sells cheap options when compared to other retail stores. If you're looking for something in particular, like a type of instrumentation or analyzer, you can look online or in a phone book to find the phone number of a company and ask if they have it in stock. This will save you the time of driving out to their location if they haven't got what you are looking for. You can call several stores and compare prices to their industrial central vacuum systems and other pieces of equipment. You may want to consider buying used products, because they will be cheaper than new items and they'll be just as functional. Cleaners can find controllers and other vacuum equipment and systems and factory outlet stores. Central vacuum systems will range in price depending on the store you buy from. Cleaners can shop around at the different stores to see who is offering the best price. Always take into consideration the cost to have your order shipped to you if you're unable to pick it up yourself. You may be able to find good deals online that save you from having to find retail locations around the area. Look for reviews from others that have bought the same brand and see if they are happy with their purchase to help you decide where to buy from.
