Carpet Extractors

A Carpet Extractor's Dream

Our new wet pickup motors feature low battery consumption and long life.
The number one failure mode for wet pickup applications (bad bearings) has been eliminated now that patented bearing protection from AMETEK has been added. We are pleased to announce the next generation wet pickup vacuum motor, designed to consume less power and provide enhanced performance.

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

How does this benefit the commercial floor care industry?

Longer floor care work shifts are now possible without the need to recharge the extractor. Also, additional power is available for other demands from 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 represents a significantly quieter motor. Tested at 0.5" — 0.875" effective orifices, the 6.6" is 3 dB lower in overall sound — and about five sones quieter. Designed with new patented brush technology, AMETEK has increased the average life from 700 hours to more than 1500+ hours. 

Key Features

  • Bearing protection has been advanced.
  • The bearing is now located in a clean, dry area.
  • Relocation of the cooling fan provides additional protection. 
  • A labyrinth run-in seal to prevent leakage.
