Filtered Cyclonic

Filtered Cyclonic power units were designed with a dual filtration process in mind. This was done with the goal of making the chore of replacing filters and bags less frequent. We have installed and tested all 3 of the filtered cyclonic options at Vac Express and we have to say that we are impressed. Some key points for the filtered cyclonic systems include:

– You have an option of venting outside
– This power unit comes with a limited lifetime warranty. No other dealer in Washington state can provide that.
– There are 3 unit variations for different home sizes and needs.
– These units remove 100% of the vacuumed dust, dirt, and debris from your home.
– Proudly made in America.

FC 550

The 550 is recommended for homes that are up to 5,000 square feet. With this particular unit you will get a sealed lift of about 125″ with a CFM max of 121. Additionally, the unit itself can hold up to 6 gallons of dust and debris. Finally, the unit has a 64.2 level of quietness (in decibels).

FC 650

The 650 is recommended for homes that are up to 8,000 square feet in size. The sealed vacuum lift (or H2O lift) on this unit is 141″ and the CFM max is 124. Like the 550, the 650 can carry up to 6 gallons of dust and debris. We are able to get a 62.8 level of quietness (in decibels) with this power unit. In other words, this unit is for larger homes and is a bit more powerful than the 550.

FC 1550

The 1150 is the monster motor of the group. This unit was designed for homes or buildings that reach up to 18,000 square feet. The FC1550 has a dual motor inside of it that is able to get 128″ of list with a 228 CFM max. It can hold up to 6 gallons of debris and is the quietest option out of the group (66.0 decibels). If you are looking to install something for a home or office/business space of this size, the FC1550 will do incredible.
