The perfect backpack
vacuum cleaner should be lightweight, compact, and have a lot
of suction. When it comes to designing a backpack vacuum it is
difficult to incorporate all of these traits into one model.
Proteam is the first companies worldwide to produce a hybrid
backpack unit that has all three of these traits. Proteam has
accomplished this by redesigning the traditional backpack unit
that manufacturers have produced over the past fifteen years.
The new design of this vacuum is compact enough so that a
single waist strap belt is enough to support the unit on the
users back. Most traditional backpack vacuum cleaners utilize
a rucksack like design that has both shoulder straps and a
waist strap in turn constraining the user from bending over.
This is important when vacuuming because removing larger
obstacles that are in the way can be a time-consuming and
arduous event. The new Proteam vacuum cleaner named the Super
Halfvac is revolutionary and will change the way future
backpack units are designed.
The Proteam Super
Halfvac is compact and uses a small but powerful motor to
power the vacuum system. The motor itself is an 8.8 amp unit
that creates over 110 cubic feet per minute of air flow. When
measured against other backpack vacuum cleaners it produces
over 106 inches a static lift which beats most other units in
its price range. The vacuum has a unique design and is a third
of the size of its comparable competitors and produces the
same power. It is important when purchasing a backpack vacuum
cleaner to consider the type of environment you're going to be
cleaning. For green buildings is important to remember that
the sound level of the running vacuum must be below 69
decibels to decrease noise pollution in the surrounding
environment. Filtration is another attribute to consider
especially when cleaning clean air critical environments such
as medical facilities, nursing homes or locations with
electrical units such as computers or other delicate hardware.
The Super Halfvac features five levels of filtration which is
unheard of in the vacuum market. In today's standards HEPA
rated vacuums need to filter up to .3 microns of contaminants
from the air by utilizing either bag or exhaust filtration.
This unit accomplishes this task by first using a dome filter
that filters the incoming air before releasing it into the
main vacuum chamber. Once the incoming air has reached this
chamber it is filtered by a cloth filter bag which surrounds a
traditional micro filter paper vacuum bag. Once the debris is
caught in this paper bag the airflow then moves through the
vacuum motor and into an exhaust dual HEPA filter which
completes the airflow process through the machine. It is
important when cleaning green LEED certified buildings to use
equipment that meets the building standards.
Overall the Proteam
Super Halfvac HEPA vacuum cleaner is a leader worldwide in the
vacuum industry. For under $600 this unit has the combined
features of both a traditional backpack unit and the upright
units of old. This vacuum should have a lifecycle of
approximately 10 years and can be rebuilt when internal parts
fail. Proteim parts are easy to find at any protein Internet
store or dealer. Compared to other vacuum cleaner parts,
Proteam parts are considerably less expensive and are easier
