Vacuum Motors

We carry a complete line of AC and DC universal vacuum motors as well as BLDC vacuum motors for all applications. We custom tailor solutions in the following market places, Pool & Spa, Medical, Carpet Extractors, Central vacuums, Pneumatic Tubes/ Material Handling, Car Wash, HVLP and Hazardous Duty applications.

Vacuum motors are available for any size, budget and performance. Our vacuum motors range in size from 3” to 9” in diameter. The motors are also available in any voltage from 115VAC to 230VAC as well as 12VDC to 48VDC. Our standard vacuum motors are available in the following three discharge types and sizes; 

  • Thru-Flow Motors - 3", 3.32", 4", 4.2", 4.3", 4.5", 4.8", 5.1", 5.2", 5.4", 5.7" 7.2"One and Two Stage motors capable of producing a wide range of performance targets.
  • Peripheral Bypass Motors - 4", 4.2", 4.3", 4.5", 4.8", 5.1" 5.2", 5.4", 5.7", 6.1", 7.2" one and two stage motors capable of producing a wide range of performance targets.
  • Tangential Bypass Motors - 3" 4.5", 5", 5.1", 5.2", 5.7", 6.6", 7.2", 8.4" 9" one, two, and three stage motors capable of producing a wide range of performance targets.

The name “Thru-Flow” vacuum motors refers to the design by which the thru flow of the working air cools the motor, as such it has limitations. The “Bypass” vacuum motors utilizes a separate independent cooling fan from the working air which is used to direct cooling air over the armature and field. Bypass motors come in two configurations: Peripheral Bypass and Tangential Bypass.  The method a manufacturer chooses depends on the method of mounting and air ducting geometry.  Because the working air does not travel across the motor at all, this style motor is a dependable choice for wet pickup applications such as scrubbers and carpet extraction.

Bypass motors are available in single and multiple stages. The stages are used to create more pressure if used as a blower or more lift if used as a vacuum. Single stage motors typically have the highest air flow/air watts while the lowest vacuum levels. Adding fan stages increases the vacuum capability of the unit but reduces the air flow. This is because of increased impedance to air flow through the system, the result of additional fans (rotating and stationary) through which the air must pass.
