How does cyclone technology work?

Rugged Industries bagless vacuums feature patented cyclone technology, responsible for providing exceptional filtration and optimal cleaning performance. As air enters the vacuum tank, heavier particles and larger materials are centrifugally separated from the lighter particles and fine dirt, moving toward the tank walls. As the heavier material loses energy and falls into the dust bin at the bottom of the tank, lighter particles continue moving to the vacuum motor. Most lighter materials are further excluded at the mesh filter, while fine dust and air continue through two more sets of nine small cyclone separators for further filtration. Using this patented 3-stage cyclonic filtration system, Rugged Advantage bagless vacuums are able to collect more dust and achieve cleaner floors.

Does higher motor power = better cleaning?

It’s commonly thought that a higher motor power naturally results in better cleaning performance. However, this is a misconception. While the motor is responsible for generating the airflow and suction, superior cleaning is achieved by the motor working in tandem with all other vacuum components. In fact, many efficient commercial vacuums will use less-powerful motors to ensure long-lasting performance. As a motor’s power increases, so does the amount of heat generated, which reduces efficiency, motor life, and vacuuming time. Instead, the motor’s power and airflow must be channelled through the right floor tool. Floor attachments are categorised as either active or passive, depending on their operation. Using passive floor tools, suction is channelled at the tool’s sole, creating high-speed air which blasts dust off the floor surface and out of carpet fibres. Active tools, on the other hand, use agitation to remove dust off floor surfaces and out of carpet fibres. The agitation makes it easier for airflow to catch dust and carry it to the vacuum filters, minimising dust emission.

The importance of floor tools

Choosing the right vacuum attachment can provide a deeper clean, help you vacuum faster, or clean under low-profile furniture. In fact, using the optimal floor tool can increase dust collection by up to 300% when vacuuming carpet.
