Motors for Central Vacuums

Central vacuum lamb electric motors
AMETEK Lamb motors are known for our 7.2" motors. Recently, we've added our new high air watt series of 5.7" thru-flow motors that reach 650-700 air watts — and a new line of 6.6" and 8.4" motors. These both offer superior air watts with lower noise, long life and higher efficiency. We have also added a new low noise, 5.4" integrated motor with diffuser technology, ideal for central vacuums used in RVs. This motor delivers 5.7" performance in a smaller, lighter, and quieter frame size. 
A Little Something About Central Vacuums

The best feature of our central vacuum motors is that they lighten the weight of the vacuum. Used in a home, customers no longer have to carry heavy vacuum cleaners from room to room — or up and down stairs. With central vacuums, the user carries only a lightweight hose and power brush unit around the home. The power unit is permanent and remains out of the way.

Industry experts claim that a central vacuum cleaner stops debris from exiting on traditional vacuum cleaner filters and exhausting it back into the room. The system carries the dirt, dust and debris out of the room and through the in-wall tubing to the main power unit, where it is deposited in a canister or bag. Central vacuum bags and canisters need to be emptied just once every three months.
