Cyclonic Story


If you’re serious about eliminating dirt and allergens from your home, there’s only one choice: VACUFLO®.

VACUFLO features Cyclonic Filtration Technology® (CFT™), a unique dual filtration process that utilizes cyclonic separation for primary filtration and either an outdoor exhaust (True Cyclonic® units) or pleated filter (Filtered Cyclonic™ units) for secondary filtration. Unlike central vacuum systems that rely on permanent cloth filters, the powerful performance of VACUFLO will not decrease as dirt accumulates.

Central vacuum systems need a balance between maximum air movement and effective filtration to guarantee high performance cleaning. Bags and filters can clog quickly and reduce airflow and vacuum power. The filtration method of Cyclonic Separation delivers the highest sustained cleaning performance because the dirt is removed from the airflow without restriction.

Cyclonic Separation, as defined by the Dictionary of Physics, requires three criteria to be met: high-speed rotating airflow, a conical container, and downward motion. Only Cyclonic Filtration Technology (CFT) from VACUFLO meets all three criteria.

CFT is an exclusive dual filtration process designed to deliver maximum cleaning power every time you vacuum. CFT begins with Cyclonic Separation to remove dirt, dust and allergens from the incoming air stream without bags or filters. Cyclonic Separation starts the moment vacuumed dirt enters the power unit from the intake. As the dirt-laden air begins a downward descent, it spirals along the inside of the unit, picking up speed and forcing 96-98% of the vacuumed dirt into the dirt canister. The remaining fine dust particles are pulled upward with the airflow and are either exhausted outside or trapped in a high-efficiency pleated filter cartridge. Less than 5% of the vacuumed dirt is exposed to the filter or exhausted outside.
