As the summing up of the
Ecovacuum project has shown the modern vacuum cleaner VC, is greatly overpowered
and wasteful of energy.
And that it should be
redesigned to run on lower power i.e. 500watts over the next few years.
The high power consumption
has been brought about mainly by the necessity to use higher powered motors to
compensate for the very dense filtering of the exhaust air.
And secondly by the publics
misconception that higher power means a better cleaning vacuum cleaner.
The Ecovacuum project also
suggests that the manufacturers should reduce the power of the machines over the
next few years to reduce Co2 Emission.
The best solution to this
problem is to employ air recycling technology ART which removes the need for
expensive and heavy filtering of the air.
And because it returns the
air back into the system the energy that is contained in the returned air stream
reduces the amount of power required to drive the fan.
This makes it possible to
achieve the same cleaning efficiency as a 2,000 watt machine using less than 250
In addition to this ART
produces a much quieter machine and because the motors are smaller the cleaner
is not so heavy.
It does not blow air around
the room disturbing allergens and causing them to become airborne.
The air recycling cleaner
ARC can reach far higher air speeds.
