Numatic Paper Vacuum Bags
Numatic Paper Vacuum Bags
Numatic paper vacuum bags have a long history of use. They were first introduced in the 1950’s where they captured the hearts of many and became very popular. The vacuum bags were both a manufacturer and user’s dream. Manufacturers loved producing them because the required raw materials were easy to acquire and the production process was simple. Customers loved them because they provided a convenient way of storing vacuum dust.
Several decades later these paper vacuum bags are still in use in massive numbers despite there being other alternatives of vacuum dirt storage e.g. bagless vacuum cleaners. Question arises: why are there still a substantial number using this “old” technology instead of the more modern vacuum inventions? Here are a few reasons.
More healthy and convenient compared to bagless vacuums
A lot of people consider numatic paper vacuum bags to be more hygienic and more convenient to use than the modern bagless vacuum. This is because, unlike the bagless vacuum, the dirt is sucked and encased in a virtually air tight bag which is later disposed once full. At no point does the user ever come in contact with the suctioned dirt. However, with the bagless vacuum users must empty the contents manually onto a bin and this makes it possible to interact with the dirt and possibly give rise to health problems.
Today, the numatic bags are more effective than ever before. Technological advancements have made it possible for such bags to securely trap particles as small as 0.1 microns. This is partly due to the bag’s extremely thin internal cotton insulator that greatly enhances the bag’s restrictive ability.
Reduced exposure to allergens.
Individuals with breathing problems e.g. Asthma; and individuals who are susceptible to allergies find the use of vacuums that deploy numatic bags to be a safer choice due to the high possibility of never coming in contact with the suctioned dirt.
In addition, the numatic bags have HEPA filters built into them that further ensure the vacuum traps up to 99 percent of all pollen, dust and other microscopic particles. The inbuilt HEPA filters, together with the internal cotton insulator provide a 99% assurance that the dirt cannot escape and aggravate those in the vicinity. As an extra protective measure, the bags are designed with a sticky cardboard paper at the bottom to ensure they are sealed tightly once they are full and disposed away.
Overall, the costs associated with vacuums that use numatic paper vacuum bags are much lower than those of vacuums that are bagless. As mentioned earlier, the HEPA filters are inbuilt into the bags so user don’t have to continually buy them separately as is the case with the bagless models.
The paper vacuum bags currently retail at a low price of £5.51 per 10 bags. These bags can last a couple of months assuming each bag is full before being disposed.
Vacuums That Support Numatic Bags
A limited selection of vacuum cleaners currently support the use of numatic paper vacuum bags. These include the Henry HVC200, the NV/SE250/350, the HVR200 James JVC235, and the JVR225 commercial NV200.
