The use of the word ‘no loss suction’ has been quite common with most vacuum cleaners in the market. This has even been mistaken to mean that the suction pressure of the said vacuums is continuous and is never lost.
In most of such instances, the manufacturers have been known to hype over their products with the aim of making a better cut out of the ever growing vacuum cleaner market. It is however quite obvious that this word is overhyped with deeper meaning to it than it is used.
Take the simple case of ‘no suction’ meaning that the flow of dirt does not reach the user of the suction. This means that the vacuum has no air at all. On the face of it, this could seem a viable option, but vacuum cleaners never operate without airflow, sad, is it?
However, if the no loss suction is used to mean that the vacuum works continuously, then it simply means that the air flow is quite immense from the beginning to the end. this is usually the expected scenario with the vacuum cleaners, but it is never so because vacuum cleaners require very little air to be able to remove the dirt.
Most vacuum cleaners are expected to work with clear ventilations to avoid clogging. The mere fact that the suction pressure within it adds the smooth functioning is overly wonderful. With just this ventilation, there would be a good amount of deposit of the dirt to the vacuum cleaners dust cup.
While most vacuums have used the ‘no loss suction’ word on their profiles, the sad part of it is that they still clog and so end up giving the user the usual cleaning problems. so the question usually arise as to what causes the clogging.
The problem of clogging of the vacuum filters by the dirt from the vacuum cleaner has just been one of the most notable downsides on most vacuums. The cause of it may be due to;
- The quality of the filters– some vacuum cleaners are fitted with poor quality filters while this is so; some filters are replaceable and can be changed at will. Most of the vacuums which clog encounter this because of their inability to handle the dust which the vacuum is collecting from the floor; this poses a big problem to the filters which are meant to encourage the airflow
- The air flow– this is then the key factor in the operations of the vacuum cleaner. With a smooth air flow, the problem of suction loss may not arise. In addition, the pressure and the nature of the air as the user doers then vacuuming will be very controlled.
- Vacuum cleaners with higher air flows are known to get the filters free from the dust and so are definitely going to perform exemplarily as compared with the vacuums with the lower air flows.
- The size of the dust cup– smaller dust cups are known to fill up very fast and so end up not to take in more of the dust coming from the floor. If the user does not take a precaution and empty the cup, you are likely to have the dust coming back to fill the filter pores and this cause the clogging.
The use of the no suction loss is an advertising word merely meant to draw as many people to the vacuum. In technical terms, it means nothing more than the mere use. In fact, some of the vacuums which use it are known to have poor performance rates.
The next time you go out there to buy a vacuum, do not make that ultimate decision because of just seeing the word no suction loss. Look deeper and make very good comparisons before jumping into the final conclusion as to whether you want to buy.
