Another component of efficiency is the reliability of cleaning equipment.
The Next Generation of backpack vacuums were thoroughly tested for safety and durability at the UL-certified laboratory at Emerson’s Tool Company Engineering facility, located on the campus of Emerson World Headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.
Testing in temperatures ranging from 32 degrees to 105 degrees Fahrenheit assured that the backpacks will perform after being transported in winter or spending the night in a garage in Arizona.
The cord was flexed 10,000 times in each plane.
The motor will run for over 800 hours on one set of brushes.
Each feature of the vacuums was tested thoroughly to be sure that the new backpacks live up to ProTeam’s legendary durability.
“The process was to validate that the new design was as robust as the old design, and to make incremental improvements wherever possible,” said Mark Tomasiak, project leader of the
Next Gen testing. “The units exceeded what we considered to be a 10-year life, excluding motor life. We feel confident that this product will stand the test of time.”
