Vacuum motors come in many different sizes and types and can be used in so many applications that it is hard to imagine a job that they cannot be used for. Blowers and other vacuum applications often require vacuum motors to move the air through them in order to work correctly. Most vacuum motors are powered by the operator pushing a button or making some sort of manual pressure with their hand. This leads to one of the most common problems that occurs with vacuums – the motor getting stuck while in use.
How to choose Vacuum Motors
Carbon brushes are used on vacuums in order to eliminate the need for moving the vacuum motors by hand. Because these brushes use magnetic forces to remove dust and particles from the air, they do not need to work as hard as a normal brush would, so they will not wear out as quickly. This allows carbon brushes to last much longer than ordinary brushes, giving you more long-lasting vacuums. Carbon brushes have also been a staple in the blower and vacuum industries for years, proving themselves to be both reliable and durable.
One type of vacuum motors that is not very common is the type that uses a cooling fan. A working air flow through a small cooling fan can provide enough cooling air to reduce vibrations and keep the motor running at top efficiency. It is very important that the fans are not overworked and are able to reduce the need for the operator to work too hard. If you need more cooling then you may consider buying two cooling fans, one for each side of your vacuum motors.
