Carpet Extractors

A Carpet Extractor's Dream

New wet pickup motors with low battery consumption and long life.
The number one failure mode for wet pickup applications has been eliminated with AMETEK's patented bearing protection. AMETEK is happy to announce the next generation wet pickup vacuum motor, designed with the intent to consume less power and provide enhanced performance.

The high motor and fan efficiency design allows  2 stage 6.6" output performance to exceed a similar 3 stage 5.7" with less input power. The 6.6" DC motor/fan system is 36% efficient vs. a typical 28% efficient 3 stage 5.7". 

What does this mean to the commercial floor care industry?

It means longer shifts without the need to recharge or it provides additional power for other demands form the low voltage equipment. The motor also incorporates enhanced bearing protection to prevent water from washing the grease out of the bearing. 

The 2 stage 6.6" DC motor/vacuum is a significantly quieter motor. Tested at 0.5" to 0.875" effective orifices, the 6.6" is 3 dB less in overall sound and about 5 sones quieter. Designed with new patented brush technology, AMETEK was able to take the average life form 700 hours to more than 1500+ hours.
