The new Hoover CVS Power Units are made of heavy duty steel that has a stiff roll and all welded construction instead of rivets to make the overall unit stronger. Powered with a Ametek Lamb © Premier Series (all metal chassis, aluminum & steel) model #117500-12 high performance 7.2" diameter motor the S5640 provides 102 CFM of airflow and 146" of sealed suction. With a total 530 Max AirWatts the S5640 is suited to applications up to a maximum 10,000 sqft. in size with flooring of all types. Standard installation is best in a true 5,000 sqft application with the longest tube run up to 225ft. Thanks to it's high suction performance the S5640 is best suited to larger applications where a powerbrush is used often to vacuum carpets & rugs.
Whether installing a complete new system or replacing an old CVS power unit, the S5640 can provide all the benefits of Central Cleaning including low sound levels in the cleaning area, perfect- 100% filtration and superior performance when compared to portable vacs; not to mention adding a Central Cleaning System to your home can increase its value.
Hoovers utilizes an all new manufacturing process for their CVS power units to ensure longevity; such as new gasket design that is compressed under the bolted down motor. The gasket is compressed to conform to the mounting surface to provide a lifelong seal. A new body gasket is also used to provide a positive seal with no leaks, even under severe circumstances.
The new motor cover is slotted for 360° cooling, providing fresh air for the cooling intake. Hoover has eliminated the need for barrel clamps in the body / dirt bucket seal area giving a positive seal without leaks.
Hoover also uses an all new painting system to impart a superior thicker textured powder coat finish to protect the metal from deterioration and pin holes. Even the inside of the system gets the same treatment as the exterior with a thick powder coat to provide abrasion resistance.
Hoover CVS power units utilize cyclonic action along with a permanent filter to keep vacuumed debris inside the dirt bucket. The Hoover filter media is capable of capturing particles down to 0.1 microns with 95% efficiency to ensure motor protection from incoming dust and also allow the unit to be vented inside the mounting area, should you so desire. The filter area is as large as possible to provide an optimum surface area for efficient air-flow without restriction. The filter media is non-organic and does not support mold growth for extended storage of vacuumed debris.
For added assistance from cyclonic action the intake of the machine does not use a baffle which normally sets up turbulence inside the vacuum disturbing the rotational flow. Hoover now uses a 45° elbow to direct the air down into a cyclonic motion to help precipitate the removal of debris from the air stream. Hoover has also removed the utility inlet from the front of the unit where it would interfere with cyclonic action and now provides you with an extra standard inlet, reducer and sweep tee packed with the power unit to place in-line where it is convenient for you.
All Hoover CVS Power Units include a 1 stud steel mounting bracket that is easy to hang and provides quick mount and dismount, you need only supply the correct fastener for the wall type you intend to mount to. The power panel includes a manual on/off switch, motor reset switch and low volt wire connection with crimp on terminals. Hoover CVS Power Units have a 6ft 3 wire power cord for connection to a standard 120V power outlet and are finished in a beautiful cream and tan gloss color.
With a reference orientation of the unit hanging on the wall in front of you; Exhaust is to the right hand side top of the tank, intake is lower on the main body of the tank to the right. The exhaust connection is approximately 6" from the top of the unit and 6" from the mounting wall. The intake is located approximately 24" from the top of the unit and 3.5" from the wall. It is recommended that you mount the unit with a minimum of 12 inches clearance on all 4 sides to allow for connections, efficient cooling and access to the dirt bucket for emptying. A dedicated 20 Amp grounded circuit is the recommended power supply and should be located within 5 feet of the mounting bracket.
