5.4-inch vacuum motor

AMETEK Lamb's 5.4" diameter vacuum motor is designed with technology that allows it to operate 7dB and 10 Sones quieter than an equivalent 5.1" or 5.7" diameter motor. The noise cancellation technology is a result of the integrated diffuser system in which the frequency and phase between the primary and secondary diffusers are designed to reduce noise.

In addition to an innovative fan-diffuser system, the motor features an improved motor lamination that increases its efficiency by between 30 and 40% and a distinctive commutator down design that allows it to run cooler as well as reduce vibration. Overall, the 5.4-inch diameter vacuum motor at 2.7 pounds is more than a pound lighter than an equivalent 5.7" version, and half a pound lighter than a similar 5.1" diameter model.

The 5.4" diameter vacuum motor is ideal for a variety of demanding vacuum motor applications, especially those where its lightweight, compact size, and quieter, more efficient operation are significant advantages. These include commercial backpack vacuums, central vacuum systems, and other high-demand floor care appliances.
