Split Canister Power Units
The VacuMaid® split canister units are the most unique central vacuums on the market. With the power unit housed separate from the dirt canister, you can place the two in separate locations. It is best that the power unit be placed in a remote location to further reduce any motor noise, and the dirt canister placed where it is easily accessible.
The S1600 unit uses a ultra long life Ametek Lamb 5.7" 2-stage tangential by-pass motor for superior performance.
Split canister systems are especially good for people with pets. With the split system, most of the hair is collected in the bottom can, although some may make it's way to the top screen. This screen can easily be cleaned by removing the top lid and wiping away the hair. With bag systems, pet hair will easily clog the bag, reducing it's performance and cleaning ability, as well as life expectancy. The bottom can features a plastic liner for clean and easy emptying.
