The Model AVP12000 Platinum Series Disposable Bag Central Vacuum System is a disposable bag central vacuum power unit. The AVP12000 is modular in design with nested components that reduce storage space and shipping costs. The nested design also simplifies handling, installation and service.
The AVP12000 has 570 peak air watt capacity and can be installed in homes up to 12,000 square feet. For installation flexibility, both the intake and exhaust ports can be connected from the left or right side. A front-mounted utility port allows easy connection of a hose directly to the power unit for local cleaning. The vacuum’s control panel has a power switch, four-color bag debris level display, two-color service indicator, and a service reset button.
The power unit’s permanent fabric filter provides filtration down to .1 micron diameter. The slide-gate collar dust bag mounts inside the debris bucket on the bottom of the power unit and holds up to 5.2 gallons of dust and dirt. Two easy-to-access swing-down latches secure the debris bucket and are used to access the dust bag. When its time for bag replacement, the slide-gate collar on the bag closes to keep the dust and dirt sealed inside.
The central vacuum system’s power is controlled through a low-voltage wire that connects to each wall inlet valve. When a central vacuum hose is inserted into the wall inlet valve, two sensing pins in the valve connect to the trigger ring on the hose end. Some hoses have a solid trigger ring that electrically connects the valve’s sensing pins whenever the hose is inserted into the valve, which starts the vacuum. Other hoses have a split trigger ring that’s connected to a low-voltage control switch in the hose’s handle, allowing the operator to control the vacuum unit’s power.
A foam-filled muffler is included for installation in the exhaust system piping. The muffler substantially reduces operating noise. Routing the vacuum’s exhaust through piping to outside the residence assures all remaining dust vents outside of the building.
