Ametek Commercial Motors: Vacuum Motors
Environmentally friendly versions of the AdvanTek II Series universal through-flow vacuum motors and Gen II Infin-A-Tek® switched reluctance brushless vacuum motors are available. The AdvanTek II vacuum motor uses a new, patented, through-flow motor designed for the commercial vacuum market. The enhanced motor design, combined with new air diffusion technology, improves the overall operating efficiencies. According to the company, these improvements allow the motor to operate at lower speeds, reducing noise in both dBs and sones, while achieving equivalent performance and offering increased durability and reliability. The Gen II Infin-A-Tek brushless vacuum motors incorporate digital control technology and electric circuitry design utilizing the brushless switched reluctance (SR) technology. With its microprocessor-based controller, the vacuum motor requires neither carbon brushes nor additional power sources for the control board. It is available in 5.7- and 7.2-inch diameter tangential bypass and 5.7-inch diameter Acustek® low-noise peripheral bypass discharge models. Various models are available for both motors.
