Scientific Study Finds BEAM Central Vacuum Superior to Portable Vacuums.
A BEAM Central Vacuum System assures superior indoor air quality over portable vacuums and sustained like-new cleaning performance, according to an independent study that compared short- and long-term soil removal and emissions of leading upright vacuums and central vacuum systems.
In a series of tests that compared short-and long-term soil removal and dust emission control, of five leading upright vacuums and the BEAM Platinum® Central Vacuum System, technicians at Professional Testing Laboratory, Dalton, Ga., found two top-performing upright vacuums’ soil removal fell 10 percent to nearly 14 percent from the beginning to the end of the test, while the BEAM system maintained consistent soil removal.
“The BEAM system delivered impressive, sustained cleaning capability from the beginning to the end of the study,” says Gary Asbury, president of PTL.
”The BEAM Platinum also maintained consistent emission control, releasing less than 6.6 micrograms per cubic meter of respirable particulates throughout the study, fewer than any of the uprights tested. Three uprights that maintained their soil removal capabilities experienced major decreases in filtration, triggering increases in particle emissions ranging from a near doubling to more than 4,300 micrograms per cubic meter.
