Aspria Souverän Ultimate CVA360U Features & Specifications
Better, Smarter, Faster.
Wessel-Werk does not build vacuum cleaners but instead specializes in design and production of the nozzles all vacuums use. From EBK powered household carpet brush to Industrial Düsa IRD500 (Düsa means "Nozzle"), a nearly 20 inch wide aluminum squeegee brush used to vacuum factory floors. Over the years most every manufacturer has turned to Wessel-Werk to make their vacuums perform better and become easier to use. Wessel-Werks prestigious reputation within the industry is unequaled. Their clients, vacuum nozzle users and even competitors respect the innovative engineering talent at Wessel-Werk that is focused on the task of making the best vacuum nozzles in the world.
The EBK360 is the latest powered brush from Wessel and like all other nozzles Wessel-Werk produces it will be used by many manufacturers to enhance their vacuum system, both portable and central vacuum alike. The Aspria Souverän central vacuum attachment kit with Wessel's EBK360 is a custom collection of components that have been selected by the central vacuum experts at Vacdepot which is unmatched by any OEM kit for quality, versatility and value. The attachments and accessories are selected to fit perfectly and match exactly the high standard our customers have come to expect from the Aspria product line.
The EBK360 brings truly all purpose carpet and rug cleaning to the stable of Wessel-Werk vacuum nozzles. An easy to use 5 position height adjuster allows the user to raise and lower the nozzle for the essential balance of brush action and airflow needed to vacuum carpet fibers of any length. Height adjustment also allows the EBK360 to remain easily maneuverable on the most plush of carpet fibers. Adjusting the power brush for the surface you are cleaning lets you set the appropriate brush action and airflow through the nozzle. A powerbrush set too low will brush the carpet but prevents airflow from passing freely through the fibers. This results in a vacuum that is both hard to push and one that does not remove embedded soils. A brush set too high does become easier to maneuver but without proper brush contact debris is not agitated from the carpet resulting in only a surface cleaning which leaves heavy soils in the fibers leading to traffic wear.
The 5 position height adjuster offers the correct height to clean any carpeted surface. Height adjustment is activated with a simple step-on button that can be changed at any time while cleaning. A height adjustment indicator window is positioned just above the pedal and viewable while standing behind the powerbrush. The clear lens of the adjuster window lets you easily see the current height position of the powerbrush as you scroll through the adjustments by stepping on the pedal. A second step-on button on top of the powerbrush releases the handle lock that allows the wand to recline in the normal vacuuming position. The handle release locks the wand into the upright position for storage or for quick stops while cleaning to move an object from your path. Locking the handle upright also allows you to transport the nozzle from room to room on it's two rear wheels for easy maneuvering.
The forward looking headlight lens of the EBK360 also holds one of the new features. While it's predecessor improved lamp life many times more than the usual incandescent bulb often found in power nozzles, the fluorescent tube light used in the EBK340 required a heavy steel power ballast that added unnecessary weight to the powerbrush. The EBK360 sports a new lightweight LED headlight array. Five high power LED's provide illumination for cleaning in dimly lit rooms or under beds where brush clogging objects lurk. Like the fluorescent lamp the new LED array shines bright for thousands of hours and is not susceptible to damage by bumps or bangs that invariable happen while vacuuming floors. The LED headlight array also allows the EBK360 to maintain a low profile for cleaning areas under furniture and in toe-kick spaces along cabinets.
To increase maneuverability and ease of use all of the EBK360's wheels were enlarged in both diameter and width. Larger wheels prevent the nozzle from sinking in to thick carpeting and becoming sluggish. The rear wheels are also moved back to be centered in the same plane as the swivel wand connector. This allows the vacuum users forward force to be routed to the wheels so the nozzle is moved forward instead of being pushed down into the carpet. The forward wheels ride on the steel height adjuster axel that lays in the base of the nozzle just behind the power brush. The forward wheels keep the front of the nozzle from being driven into the carpet and also provides lift over rises in the floor surface such as thresholds. All four wheels operate on chrome plated steel axels for life long wear. All wheels are also covered with soft molded tires for steady tracking on all floor surfaces and true multi-floor operation that will not damage hard floor surfaces of any kind, including wood or stone.
The bottom of the EBK360 includes many innovative features including Wessel-Werk exclusive designs. The EBK360 provides excellent side cleaning with thread collectors on both side of the nozzle's shoe. The nozzle shoe is the opening that surrounds the brush and the EBK360's shoe is unique in it's fully open design that does not require support ribs like many other brushes.The open shoe allows full brush contact and lessens the "track marks" that other nozzles leave behind. The open shoe is also maintenance efficient and allows easy removal of threads or long hair that may wrap around the brush. Simply run a succor across the brush cutting all the threads and hair, turn the brush over and start the vacuum for quick and clean removal.
The brush roller ends are sealed in the nozzle housing to prevent damaging debris from entering the axel connections or cog belt drive. The vacuum intake is a center mounted funnel that provides even suction and airflow to both sides of the brush roll for consistent performance. A final feature found only on Wessel-Werk power nozzles is the all surface squeegee strip. While most powered nozzles claim to provide hard floor cleaning capability, few actually do. The dry squeegee mounted just behind the brush roller works on all floor surfaces by focusing the suction inside the brush shoe. For both carpets and hard floors the squeegee maintains airflow velocity at the opening that is critical for good pickup. On hard floors the squeegee also prevents debris from passing under the nozzle for more efficient single pass cleaning.
Also clearly visible from the bottom of the powerbrush is the new sculptured brush roller. The trim & fit roller utilizes a chevron brush configuration which brings debris that is beaten from the surface to the center mounted vacuum intake more efficiently. The sculptured roller body also moves airflow with paddle action using the motion of the roller agitate, sweep and push debris and airflow into the system.
The solid polycarbonate body of the brush roller is nearly indestructible, high speed balanced and uses thread catchers on each end to prevent debris from entering the axel. The solid core design prevents warpage that leads to excessive vibration and noise, while the steel and bronze bushings provide lifetime wear resistance and protection from dirt and dust in the roller ends. The brush roller operates in a sealed "dirty air" cavity that is filled with negative pressure that moves debris which has been beaten, swept and pushed by the roller. In the "clean air" area of the nozzle the rollers' sprocket connects to the brush to the motor by a geared belt drive.
The geared brush roller and the geared motor are connected by a reinforced high strength geared belt. Like most quality powered nozzles, the EBK360 has a nonslip drive system that directly transfers the power of it's 250 watt brush motor. Unlike powered nozzles using flat rubber belts the EBK360 can provide ultra high speed operation, resulting in superior performance, not possible in rubber belted units. The EBK360's brush motor is also new with some very impressive features. Each end of the motors armature (spinning rotor) is carried in a full size 8mm sealed high speed ball bearing, the same sized used in many vacuums main motors. The armature also has 24 individual commutator bars, double that of most power nozzle motors, resulting in better heat dissipation and longer life. The frame of the motor is a steel skeleton instead of the usual plastic clam shell. The steel frame provides both strength and heat dissipation, the later of which is provided by a full diameter cooling fan.
In a departure from standard design the brush roller motor is protected from overheating ny use of a thermal link which is banded to the motors copper windings. The thermal link automatically severs power to the motor when a set temperature is reached and reconnects power when the motors temperature falls below a safe level. Primary cooling is provided by the motors own full diameter cooling fan which pulls clean air from under the nozzle hood to wash over the motor while running. Not content to rely solely on the motors built in cooling fan, Wessel-Werk provides an elegant engineering solution to secondary cooling for the brush motor. Within the intake throat (the dirty air side) of the nozzle housing a small port is opened and ducted across a slot and into the motor compartment and the belt drive compartment.
Using a small bit of the vacuums suction, cool air is moved through hidden vents at both rear wheels. The cool clean airflow is carried over the motors commutator and brushes where significant heat is generated. Cool clean air is also pulled through the compartment housing the brush roller sprocket, geared belt and motor pulley keeping the area both clean of debris and cool from the forces of friction. All of the critical heat generating components of the EBK360 are provided continuous cooling when connected with the vacuum system, even when the brush motor is not running. A design such as secondary brush cooling is inconceivable to vacuum cleaner manufacturers just makes common sense to a vacuum cleaner nozzle manufacturer.
The vacuum cooling and cleaning chamber is just one of the many unique features in the new EBK360, but the innovation our staff liked the most may not be something that you would immediately recognize as significantly important. The cleaning power of the EBK360 carpet nozzle is derived from it's powerful, high speed geared belt driven brush roller. Geared belt systems require control hardware and firmware to protect the motor from jamming in the brush and properly regulate performance. Like most other geared belt drive system the EBK360 will shut down the motor if an obstruction blocks the brush from spinning. If you accidently vacuum a sock into the nozzle the control system will shut down the brush in less than a second. Once you remove the obstruction and restart the powerbrush the control circuit will reset and your ready to clean - no harm, no foul.
These vacuum control systems consist of many components and most often the parts are soldered to a circuit board. Diodes, potentiometers, resisters, regulators, sensors and breakers on a match-book sized circuit board formed the heart of the geared belt control system. Most everyone whom has taken an electromechanical device in for repair has heard the words "It's the control board". Soldered circuit control boards are not the most reliable components, particularly inside the harsh environment of a vacuum powerbrush. The EBK360 has for the first time done away with the "circuit control board".
Fewer parts with lower replacement cost and higher reliability are now provided in a conectorized environment within the EBK360. In addition to the motor mounted self-resetting thermal breaker, a single circuit self-resetting overload protector takes the place of old fashioned mechanical push-button circuit breakers and sensors. To assure proper activation of the circuit protector and eliminate EMI feedback from the motor an inline electronic noise suppressor smooths out the power delivered to the system. That's it., the entire control system is held in two external modules with inline connectors. We never like circuit control boards in power nozzles, that's why the new electrical system in the EBK360 is our favourite new feature.
The same common sense engineering solutions are applied to other areas inside the power brush including the height adjuster which uses a steel reinforcement bar inside the step-on pedal to work with steel lever in the nozzle base to move the adjuster. Incredible engineering goes into every aspect of designing and using the EBK360 powerbrush right down to the rear wheels. Most other nozzle systems use a plastic axel inserted or molded as part of the wheel. The EBK360 uses a steel axel with a floating wheel the gives the nozzle easy movement and lifelong wear in a part that is often a problem for other nozzles after just a few years or normal use.
We can get an overall idea of engineering within the EBK360 by looking at the last component under the powered nozzles hood, the steel counter balance plates. While no other power nozzle manufacturer has ever considered the need to balance the weight of the motor inside the nozzle, Wessel-Werk never considered the idea of not doing so. Experience through Tradition - Performance through Innovation This is the culture of design at Wessel-Werk.
Some central vacuum cleaner companies make their own powered nozzle and it is only a smaller part of the larger machine they must produce to have a complete product offering. Wessel-Werk makes only vacuum nozzles. Each nozzle is the complete machine and the singular concern of Wessel-Werk. Every nozzle design is built to stand on it's own and increase the efficiency of the vacuum system it's customer (the vacuum cleaner manufacturer) connects it to.
In the mind of a Wessel-Werk nozzle design engineer the brushing performance, noise profile, reliability and ease of usage are all calculations based on a balanced nozzle design. An unbalanced nozzle may exhibit higher wear on one side of the brush roller or may pull the nozzle to one side during operation. Without the counter weight, side cleaning could be negatively effected, an unwelcome noise could be introduced or airflow may be shifted resulting in lower efficiency in part of the nozzle. These small deficiencies may matter very little to the manufacturer building a suction canister power unit, but are unacceptable to the manufacturer obsessed with a singular goal of building the worlds finest vacuum nozzle.
This is the reason why Wessel-Werk remains the worlds premier vacuum nozzle manufacturer. Engineering details have consequences for cleaning system performance, something often overlooked by vacuum manufacturers building those bright shinny portable vacuums who seem more concerned with winning the beauty contest on the store shelves (Sorry Dyson!).
One component of the EBK360 that was carried over from it's predecessor is the fully articulating swivel joint, commonly referred to as the nozzles neck. The unique design of the swivel joint in vacuum nozzles is a known Wessel-Werk trait. The swivel joint makes the powered brush steerable. Turn the hose handle and the power nozzle turns with you. The steerable neck allows you to vacuum in a more natural pattern instead of the tiring push-pull fan pattern that is required to position other powered nozzles with regular tilting-only necks. The articulating joint tilts a full 90° which allows the handle to lay completely flat while the powerbrush stays on the floor for cleaning. This lets you insert the power nozzle under furniture and beds for removing dust and allergens. The articulating joint also swivels a full 180° left and right for exceptional maneuverability in cleaning around furniture and other objects on the floor. The EBK360's neck also has one other feature, a function that symbolizes convenience in central cleaning systems: Quick Disconnect.
A simple to use toe-operated pedal on the swivel joint unlocks the neck of the power brush from the vacuum wand. Before QDC (quick disconnect) the regimen to change vacuum nozzle was cumbersome at best. Pushing small buttons with your fingers, unplugging the power cord from under the hose grip, twisting the vacuum wand from the nozzle and finally reconnecting a new nozzle. For many with low hand strength the torture of pushing in the metal button while twisting and pulling the nozzle from the wand resulted in an unwillingness to change tools all together. With the EBK360's QDC you push on the release pedal with your toe and pull the wand straight out of the nozzle by it's hose grip. No buttons, no cords, no problem.
The EBK360 powered nozzle is connected to the vacuums hose by the Inox class MYR67WW integrated stainless steel telescopic wand from Myraton. Inox Class MYR67WW telescopic wand is a double QDC button lock integrated power cord wand designed specifically for use with Wessel-Werk powered nozzles.
The swivel neck of the powered nozzle has a recessed power connector and button lock receiver. When the wand is connected to the nozzle the matching power plug from the wand is connected to the recessed receiver and the button lock wand is connected with it's matching lock receiver resulting in a suction and electric connection that mates perfectly with no leaks.
The new integrated power cord design not only covers the external hanging coil-cord, it also sports a new hose end connection system. The integrated wand expands to 38½ inches in length, the reach required to use with a powered nozzle for carpet cleaning. Push button extension and retraction glides to position in one inch increments with a fully collapsed length of 24¾ inches. The Integrated wands exceptional quality is evident in both design and build using a proven Myraton telescoping platform that offers many years of trouble free service.
The Myraton integrated stainless steel wand is a work of art as much as a technical achievement. The new design fuses the upper cord management connection with the hose quick release button. The cord management connection keeps the integrated cord in place at all times and ready for use with a flush connection electric hose. The integrated power cord uses a mini coil concealed within a telescopic sleeve to extend in length with the wand and terminates in the quick release connector used on the Wessel-Werk EBK360 power nozzle. This integrated design is the final key that completely eliminates external cords of any kind in the Aspria Souverän central vacuum attachment set, which increases reliability and adds incredible maneuverability to a now fully integrated product from inlet to nozzle.
High quality stainless steel construction offers the strongest wand design available with permanent, life long stain and corrosion resistance. Beautiful brushed finish shows quality workmanship that will not rust, chip, scratch or peel and will remain functional and good looking for years to come. The highly reliable interference ratchet locking system is exceptionally smooth to operate with extended life offering years of trouble free service.
All Aspria powerbrush attachment sets include the very best electric hose. The Plastiflex brand 4-wire Control Clean Dual Power crush-proof hose is the most widely used power hose for central cleaning systems in the world. The Aspria attachment set hoses are built at Plastiflex North America using the Electraflex hose body, an oversized 1 3/8" ID with a smooth bore interior for better airflow properties. The larger hose interior can result in an estimated 20% increase of airflow performance over standard diameter hoses. The larger interior diameter hose offers less resistance for increased velocity and through flow.
The lightweight crush-proof hose comes standard in 30 foot lengths with an optional 35ft upgrade available at order. The soft molded design of the ElectraFlex© hose body features a high thread count and a rounded rib design that won't bite or grab and can make amazingly sharp turns with crimping. Plastiflex uses proprietary formulations of plastics to give the hose a soft texture that is flexible, but strong enough to endure years of heavy use in the home. Newer crush-proof hoses systems use stranded power & signal wires which are moulded into the ribs of the hose. Crush-proof hoses weigh 30% less than the older wire-moulded hoses and are additionally resistant to accidental crush damage. Vacdepot offers many brands and styles of vacuum hose but we always recommend Plastiflex for powered central vacuum systems. No other brand of hose is more flexible or has proven to be nearly as reliable as the Plastiflex brand for the last 20 years.
The handgrip of the Control Clean hose has become the gold standard in central vacuum hoses, the ergonomic Gas-Pump Grip. A full loop on the handle gives you a positive hold that requires less effort when pulling back. Keeping the grab area small also means less fatigue on your fingers and wrist than when gripping the full diameter of hose without the gas-pump grip. All Aspria Souverän attachment sets use the full 360° swivel handle design that prevents the hose from tangling while you clean. An easy to use thumb operated switch provides 3 positions for total control of your central cleaning system. You can power just the suction unit alone, the suction unit and carpet brush unit together or power all devices off from the handle without having to unplug the hose from the wall to stop the system.
The wall end of the Control Clean hose is available in the two standard CVS hose configurations; universal corded connection or direct connection. Both systems use a 1.5" diameter connection with low-volt control circuit band moulded into the hose tip. The difference between Universal and Direct connection hose styles is how the high-voltage is passed to the hose. Universal connection uses an 8ft long external cord that plugs into an electrical outlet near the vacuum inlet. This is common for many older systems. Universal inlets have been used for the last 30+ years by most every manufacturer. Direct connection systems are newer and were installed beginning in the early 1990's. This system derives high-voltage directly from the inlet. Instead of an external power cord the hose end has two small male pins about 3/8" apart from each other projecting from the tip of the hose.
Direct connection inlets (also called supervalve or electravalve powered inlets) have a small receptacle in the face of the valve and are marked "120V" for 120 volts. You choose the type of hose connection you need to work with your existing inlet vales or the type of valve you will be installing with a new CV system.
Universal and Direct Connect standard hoses fit the vast majority of vacuum inlets in use today. A few older inlets used proprietary connection styles to be aware of; Kenmore and Bud inlets used a smaller 1.25" connection. For these systems an adapter can be attached to the hose which will allow the new system to work with your existing inlets. The other proprietary valve still in use today is the Vacuflo automatic low-volt inlet valve. This system uses a set of external pins for the low-volt connection instead of the hose tip connector and a slightly larger diameter hose connection.
These valves are easy to identify as they are marked "Vacuflo" and use 4 screws to attach them to the wall instead of two. If you would like to use a powered brush kit with your existing Vacuflo inlets please contact us for the optional adapters needed before you order. More information about hoses and inlets is available in the article Central Vacuum Hoses and Inlets Explained under the articles tab.
The Wessel-Werk EBK360 powerbrush, Myraton MYR67WW Integrated power wand and Plastiflex Control Clean dual voltage hose are the base components of each version of the CVA360 attachment set. Above floor nozzles, kit accessories and hard surface tools described in the remainder of this review will vary in design, quality and quantity in each model of the CVA360 kit. A handy quick reference comparison chart is available for a summary of the included components in each model.
The CVA360U attachment set includes two Wessel-Werk manufactured power nozzles; The EBK360 Carpet Nozzle and the MEB160QD Hand held Nozzle. Where the EBK360 powered carpet brush provides for outstanding performance cleaning carpets and rugs, the Mini Electric Brush (MEB) provides the best cleaning for above floor (sofas, upholstery, pet beds), limited floor (stairs & steps) and one of our favorite applications, car interiors. Many times more efficient than an regular unpowered upholstery nozzle and much more powerful than turbo nozzles - even those that sell for a similar price - the MEB160 gives you strong brushing power with an independent electric motor that is powerful and quiet.
The brush system is driven by a non-slip geared belt for dependable performance that is not reduced when suction lowers, as in air-driven turbo nozzles. The MEB160QD connects directly to the Plastiflex Control Clean hose and is controlled by the hose's power switch. Highly efficient, the 6 inch wide powered MEB160QD can spin it's brush roller up to 5,000RPM to agitate upholstery, rugs or any textile, sweeping surface and embedded soils into the vacuums airflow. The MEB160QD cleans all textile surfaces quickly and quietly using it's own low noise electric drive motor.
Got pet fur? No problem for the MEB160QD. Dried chunks of mud or loose sandy gunk in the foot wells of the family truckster? MEB160QD will power those soils from the carpet fibers with high speed brushing action so your vacuum can easily lift it out of your car. Tired of trying to hold your power brush at just the right angle to vacuum a stair tread? Do you have trouble holding your vacuums powerbrush flat against your stairs vertical riser? Easy as pie with the MEB160QD. The Mini Electric Brush is lightweight, swivels 180° to lay flat and the brush opening tilts to clean at almost any angle. Vacuum your mattress?
Many of us are told to vacuum our mattress in order to remove dust mites and dust mite fecal matter which can cause or aggravate allergies. The powerful MEB160QD can help remove embedded soils not cleaned by suction alone without damaging your mattresses cover fabric like full size carpet nozzles can. The applications for the MEB160QD are nearly unlimited and using the powered brush will greatly increase your cleaning effectiveness and your efficiency which allows you to clean better, faster.
The MEB160QD (Mini Electric Brush), also known as the HEB160 (Hand Electric Brush) is produced in Germany at the main Wessel-Werk factory. While there have been powered hand nozzles before the designs were most always proprietary and would fit only a few portable vacuums (Kenmore PowerMate was a popular mini brush years ago). The Aspria Souverän attachment set uses the industry standard for tool connection and power. To use the MEB160QD you just attach it to the hose handle like any other vacuum tool and your ready to clean.
The MEB160QD features an articulating nozzle shoe. The nozzle shoe is the opening of the MEB160QD's vacuum area where the spinning brush makes contact with the area or object to be cleaned. The nozzles shoe is the part of the vacuum tool that controls airflow through the tool for proper cleaning and, in the case of powered brushes, prevents the object from being vacuumed into the cleaning nozzle. The MEB160QD's shoe is unique because it tilts. This allows the angle of attack to vary within 15° without losing full contact of the shoe, resulting in better brush and suction performance.
The MEB160QD's shoe also has side cleaning ports both front and back on both sides of the shoe. These holes in the side of the shoe bring airflow in from the side of the nozzle which does increase performance at the side of the nozzle, but more importantly provides airflow across the entire brush roller when it can not be pulled through the area being cleaned (such as rugs with sealed backing or glued down fabrics). The side cleaning ports provide important airflow relief for the nozzle so the tool is always easy to use and airflow is always moving through it for superior performance.
The MEB160QD's brush roller is filled with medium density polypropelene bristles that are designed to take the high speed usage of an electric brush. The medium density fill is softer than most full sized power carpet cleaning nozzles which allows it to be safely used on upholstery of all types, including micro fabrics and natural textiles, without the fear of damage or fuzzing that stiff bristle brushing may cause. Just as with full size carpet power nozzles the MEB160's belt drive system is protected from the incoming dirt and dust by a barrier that prevents dust from entering.
To keep something really clean you need to vacuum it, and this is what Wessel-Werk does for the MEB160QD internal components. A reversing clean airflow is pulled from the top cooling vent on the MEB160QD's hood, through the brush motor and geared belt system and into the nozzles intake orifice and carried away to the vacuum. The reverse airflow through the nozzle keeps negative pressure inside the motor compartment which prevents dust from leaking in and damaging the system. The airflow also provides cooling for the brush motor which allows unlimited and uninterrupted usage.
At the heart of the MEB160QD's powerful cleaning performance is a new high voltage micro motor with incredible speed and torque. AC voltage from the hose is converted to 120 volts DC for use by the Johnson Electric DF651 micro motor. Along with converting the power to direct current the MEB160QD's motor is protected from jams by an automatically resetting breaker.
Should an object be pulled into the powered nozzle and jam the roller the protector circuit will activate and shut down the brush motor instantly. When the jammed object is removed from the nozzle and the MEB160QD is powered up the circuit resets automatically. The Johnson Electric High Voltage DC motor is compact and quiet but very powerful. With a maximum 11,000 RPM unloaded the standard speed of the motor is over 8,000 RPM. Using a non-slip fiberglass reinforced cogged belt and matching gear wheels on the motor's drive shaft and brush roller the nominal brush speed of the MEB160QD is regulated at 5,000 RPM, equivalent to it's full size carpet nozzle cousins.
The brush roller deign is auger style which drives all debris to the center of the nozzle and the vacuums suction port. Along with it's high brush speed the Johnson DF651 motor provides exceptional torque which drives the brush through all fiber types, even thick or deep plush carpet without stopping.
Using the MEB160QD will dramatically increase your cleaning efficiency when vacuuming textile surfaces both above and on the floor. Reducing the effort and time required to vacuum as well as providing true deep cleaning performance in hard to reach areas are just some of the reasons to use the MEB160QD with your central vacuum. Pet owners will consider the MEB160QD their most important vacuum tool. The ability to quickly and easily erase all evidence of your pup or kitty lounging on your sofa or riding in your car is held within the powerful Mini Electric Brush. Finally a powered nozzle that delivers on the promise of pet hair and lint removal from all those areas that your full size powered brush won't reach or can not clean.
For hard floor cleaning both the CVA360U kit include the worlds most maneuverable hard floor brush. The Wessel-Werk D330 Turn & Clean dual axis hard floor brush sets a new standard for maneuverability and performance. With a castle cut full wrap of mixed density bristles the D330 cleans in every direction it is moved. With an extra wide 13" cleaning path the D330 makes quick work of larger areas and the patented swivel pivot connection allows effortless maneuvering in tight spaces unlike any other floor brush.
The new D330 Turn-N-Clean adds another axis to the floor nozzles maneuverability. The unique D330's nozzle connector allows for a full 180° swivel, and also provides for a full 90° pivot. Most importantly the D330 can both pivot and swivel at the same time which allows you to hold the nozzle in most any position. Have you ever wanted to turn your floor brush sideways and clean in a tight space? This unique patented nozzle connector allows the D330 Turn & Clean to reach into spaces no ordinary floor nozzle would ever fit. And it does so with ease: no buttons, pedals or latches - just Turn the handle and Clean.
The nimble posture and amazing flexibility of the D330 is made possible by Wessel-Werk design engineers employing the use of Cardan Joint principles. This unique connection of floor brush to the vacuum wand uses multiple rigid connections to flex like a hose for nearly unlimited movement and still provide the support need for easy maneuvering. Unlike conventional floor nozzles that only clean in standard front-to-back motion, the D330 can also clean in a sweeping side-to-side motion with the floor nozzle parallel to your body. The side-to-side sweeping motion is a favourite method of commercial cleaners for maintaining large areas of floors in a single pass with incredible speed. Of course the D330 excels at the conventional front to back cleaning motion and the full wrap of castle cut bristles cleans in both forward and backward motions, unlike conventional floor brushes.
The brush design of the D330 is also innovative in the full wrap castle cut mixed fill bristle set which uses both synthetic and natural fibers for both flexibility and strength. A brush stiffener shadows the castle cut bristle set keeping the bristles in place and preventing bristle flare which reduces performance. The castle cut bristle set with its alternating cut-outs support the brush and regulates airflow though the nozzle for excellent performance without suction sealing against the floor, even with hi-flow vacuum systems.
The mixed density bristle set wraps the entire perimeter of the D330 for effective cleaning in every direction and effective edge cleaning without "bull-dozing" the dirt in front or behind the nozzle. A larger cut-out pattern on the front bristle set allows in larger debris while a smaller opening in the rear bristle set provides more surface contact to catch small objects passing under the nozzle. The forward-swept nozzle housing configuration puts more bristle at the front of the cleaning path for reaching into corners.
Like other Wessel-Werk cleaning nozzles the D330 operates with very low noise and low weight. Each Wessel-Werk nozzle design is processed first through a virtual environment, then a real life acoustics lab where noises can be tuned out of the final design which further reduces the "chore" of the cleaning task. The D330 Turn & Clean floor brush is more than 3 times quieter than our standard 12" hard floor brush.
Our most popular 12" hard floor brush weights 10.5 ounces. The D330, including the wider 13" cleaning path weighs only 9.6 ounces. Because the D330 is an engineered mono-body built-up design, Wessel-Werk eliminates the extra weight while providing more maneuverability and function than regular floor brushes. Thanks to the unique bristle set arrangement and swivel pivot connector the Turn & Clean is simple to use and requires less hand strength to clean with than standard floor nozzles for less wrist fatigue. The D330 floats on most hard floors and is very easy to steer from the handle using a natural cleaning motion. The D330 also has a tough side. The nozzle body is moulded from polypropylene for a nearly indestructible chassis that will not mark or mar walls, baseboards or furniture.
The CVA360U Souverän attachment set includes the Deluxe Crevice and Upholstery vacuum tools. The Upholstery tool features natural fill bristles and a soft vinyl cover that is non-marking. The crevice nozzle is made from rigid polystyrene for strength and wear resistance.
The deluxe vinyl upholstery tool included in the is 6" (152mm) wide with a scalloped bottom plate insert and a grooming brush. The shoe design insures continuous air-flow without the need for a suction reducer, eliminating "seal off". The brush strip gently engages upholstery to lift debris and groom surfaces. The brush also helps to remove hair, pet fur, lint and other clingy soils that suction alone will not remove. The soft outer cover will not mar light colored furniture or scratch soft surfaces and the friction fitting connector will allow use directly at the end of the hose or with any wand extension.
The Deluxe crevice tool is 13" (330mm) long with flat profile and slots for those "hard-to-reach" corners and crevices where dust and debris can hide. Slots provide additional airflow along the cleaning surface underneath furniture and cabinets. Made of textured styrene the crevice tool is strong enough to take abuse but also just a bit flexible to keep it from breaking. Most often crevice tools are used for cleaning areas and objects never conceived of by the engineers, and are jammed into, next to, under and between anything and everything. Realizing long ago that crevice tools are used often, and often abused, the crevice tool was redesigned to stand up to rigorous use. The extra length of the crevice nozzle, a full 13 inches, helps you to continue jamming, pushing and prying the crevice tool wherever you need to clean.
Each CVA360U Souverän attachment set includes the Wessel-Werk D174-N UDB, The Ultimate Dusting Brush. The Ultimate Dusting Brush from Wessel is an indispensable tool in any cleaning arsenal. If you use your vacuum to clean above the floor or for other utility work, a dusting brush is often the tool you will use. Unfortunately the dusting brush included with most vacuums is too small to be used efficiently, has an inconvenient design or shape and may have bristles that are too short or made of material that is inflexible, leaving dust behind on the surface being cleaned.
With one tool, Wessel-Werk has addressed all the deficiencies of regular dusting brushes. The cleaning face has been shaped for the way people clean. The UDB has a five-inch cleaning depth with a 1.5 inch protected opening. The elongated service end of the tool has nearly twice the cleaning area of standard dusting brushes letting the user do more work in a single pass. The top of the UDB is also tapered and the bristles swept forward letting you clean into corners and reach areas inaccessible to other tools; and the suction opening is tapered so suction is evenly distributed the whole length of the tool.
There are 68 individual tufts mounted in a double offset row to the chassis with raised connectors to hold the bristles securely to the tool. The soft bristles are longer to flex as the tool passes over the object being cleaned, using stored tension in the bending bristle to knock dust particles off the surface and into the air stream. The poly bristles and heavy-duty housing are also water washable and fit easily in the top rack of your dishwasher.
For additional extra reach and utility cleaning the Souverän attachment set includes two 20" long styrene wands. The lightweight wands can be added to the power wand for extra reach overhead on ceilings, shelving, windows, ceiling fans and more. The utility wands can also be used directly on the hose for quick pick-ups directly on the floor or for use with the floor brush when the power wand is not available. The utility wands are also great for all-purpose cleaning in areas where you may not want to use a metal wand including in the car or the garage. Each end of the utility wands are friction fit for fast connection to the hose and tools and on-the-fly adjustment not possible in button locking wands.
In addition to the Myraton integrated power wand and two utility plastic wands the CVA360U Ultimate includes our most innovative straight suction vacuum cleaner wand. Also manufactured by Myraton and also made from stainless steel, the MYR6750 Comfort Seal telescopic wand is the ultimate vacuum extension. There are hundreds, if not thousands of vacuum wands used today. Why is Comfort Seal better? They do not leak vacuum suction from the handle connection. This one simple advancement in design can increase the airflow delivered to the vacuum tool up to 20% over traditional wands. The Comfort Seal utilizes a flexible over molded grip to provide an air tight connection to the vacuum hose. Other straight suction wands provide no protection against the loss of airflow and leak more vacuum suction the more they are used.
The "Comfort Seal" provides a soft grip for the wand and an easy push-button release for button locking hoses. High quality stainless steel tube construction offers the strongest wand design available with permanent, life long stain and corrosion resistance. Beautiful brushed finish shows quality workmanship that will not rust, chip, scratch or peel and will remain functional and good looking for years to come. Comfort Seal is universal and fits all of the CVA360U's included airflow tools.
Like all Inox Class 6700 series wands from Myraton the Comfort Seal is telescopic. Expanding to 38½ inches in length, the reach of regular two piece wand sets in one convenient tool. The Myraton wand extension system uses a reliable interference ratchet locking system to secure the wand at the users desired height. The interference ratchet is smooth to operate and highly reliable with fewer internal components. An internal seal connects bottom and top tubes to prevent leakage when adjusting the wand.
To keep all of the CVA360U's tools neat and tidy, storage is provided in the Deluxe synthetic fabric storage bag with gusseted deep pockets for holding small and large vacuum nozzles. Two smaller side pockets with straps will hold the included utility wands while the larger tools fit within the center. The top of the storage bag has a full width support which keeps the bag from folding while hanging and preventing you from finding the vacuum tool you need. The fabric storage features a strong loop of nylon at the top so the bag can hang on the included hose racks storage hook. You can also hang the loop over a coat hanger and store the tools on a closet rod. Easy to transport, the fabric storage bag is an easy way to move all your tools to the area being cleaned, instead of walking back and forth to your storage closet to retrieve one tool at a time.
Hose storage in the CVA360U kit is the PH600 Deluxe hose holder. Made of rugged polypropylene the deluxe hose hanger provides plenty of space to keep your hose off the floor, preventing damage. Easy to mount to any wall with screws or wall anchors (not included) the hose hanger provides plenty of space for larger diameter hoses, 30ft or 35ft. Keeping your hose coiled and off the floor will greatly extend its cleaning life and helps to keep it flexible for many years. The deluxe hose hanger also has a hook under the hose support to hang the cloth tool storage caddy. Two screws will mount the hose hanger to a single vertical stud for secure storage out of the way and off the floor.
Providing for additional off the floor storage the CVA360U kit includes two (2) wall mount wand holders. These unique devices mount directly to the wall with included screws or wall anchors and feature a flexing, pivoting rubber strap. To store the telescopic wand just push the wand into the rubber strap and it locks into place supporting the full weight of wand and attached tool, hanging on the wall and out of the way. Deluxe and Ultimate Souverän attachment kits also include the wand-mount tool holder. This handy device snaps onto the integrated telescopic wand and provides three connectors to store the dust brush, crevice tool and upholstery nozzle on the wand while you vacuum your floors.
If you prefer, the wand caddie can also attach to the secondary telescopic wand instead. Having your above-floor-tools in reach at all times can increase efficiency and give you the opportunity to do detail cleaning when you want without trekking back to the storage closet to get the nozzle you need.
For efficient cleaning of upholstered surfaces without the use of a spinning brush the unique Sofa Tool is included in the CVA360U attachment set. The Sofa Tool, also known as the Pet Hair Tool, offers wide directional lint pads to clean and groom upholstered furniture without the risk of damage to softer fabrics. Lint remover strips on both sides of the air channel easily remove lint, pet hair and stubborn clingy soils. The sofa tool give you the muscle you need in a vacuum tool to clean especially difficult types of coverings such as velour and micro-suede.
The Sofa Tool works by using directional surface cleaning pads to groom and clean with your vacuums airflow. Each pad has a unique one-way removal system that lifts clingy lint and pet hair while pulling the nozzle, and releases the soil into the airstream when pushing the nozzle. With a surface cleaning pad on both sides of the air channel you clean with every movement of the tool. The Sofa Tool is easy to use on all covered surfaces including car seats and bed coverings thanks to it's side air vents that let air continuously move through the nozzle without sealing against the surface.
A full 9" in width, the sofa tool is both larger and more effective than standard upholstery nozzles. The cleaning pads are simple to remove and clean if they become soiled and the entire tool is top-rack dishwasher safe. A true must-have for those with indoor pets and upholstered furniture and homes with delicate fabric used in furniture, bedding or curtains.
The RD285 Quick Clean Brushless nozzle is a combination floor cleaning tool suitable for both hard surfaces and rugs. This unique floor nozzle is unlike most others and uses no bristles. If you like to vacuum quickly the RD285 is the best floor nozzle for moving through the job fast. With no bristle to clog with hair and dirt you will never need to stop while cleaning your floor to unstuff your floor tool. The RD285 uses it's special design to focus airflow in a unique pattern to mimic the function of bristles in a regular floor nozzle.
The International Forum Design Award winning vacuum nozzle has many unique and thoughtful features including large easy rolling rear wheels, tilting and swiveling nozzle connector, ultra-low profile design, embedded thread & lint lifters and of course the multi-purpose design that allows use on hard floors as well as rugs. A set of flexible sealing blades flank the intake which forces airflow to concentrate across the floors surface.
Using airflow design to duplicate the function of bristles allows the RD285 to clean without a build-up of debris at the nozzle and prevent bull-dozing. The brushless design also makes the RD285 uniquely well suited to cleaning homes with indoor pets and their troublesome shed fur. The bristle free RD285 can gulp down mounds of fur without clogging.
The RD285's combination function uses the same cleaning dynamics to vacuum rugs with airflow velocity which quickly lifts soils from carpet fibers using the sealing blades to concentrate airflow on the surface. To vacuum clingy soils, including hair and fur, the RD285 employs two directional thread lifters. Each strip cleans in one direction and release the debris into the airflow in the other direction, self cleaning on each pass as you vacuum. The thread lifters allow you to scrub trouble spots on rugs that hold clingy soils.
The RD285 is an excellent addition to a powered carpet cleaning nozzle in homes with hard floors mixed with wall-to-wall carpets. For homes with primarily hard floors the RD285 can provide a quick-clean nozzle for all surface cleaning with the added function of rug vacuuming for quick clean ups. For those with indoor pets the brushless RD285 is particularly well designed to deal with copious amounts of fur our friends can leave behind.
At just over eleven inches wide the RD285 is comfortable to use in home with large open floor plans, though the highly maneuverable nozzle connector combined with brushless intake and fast wheels help the RD285 to excel in smaller and tight spaces that seem to attract so many dust bunnies.
There are nearly as many different kinds of floor nozzle available today as their are types of floors. The selection of floor nozzles in the CVA360U kit is important as our homes have increasingly more hard floor surfaces. The third floor nozzle included in the CVA360U Souverän Ultimate attachment set started a revolution in floor tools when it was introduced to the market. The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle has quickly become one of the most desired add-on attachments of existing and new central vacuum users. It's a "dry dust-mop" in a vacuum tool that captures and removes dust and small debris from all those hard to reach places while simultaneously polishing floors with an innovative fringe design. The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle features a cut-away front to let the dirt into the large nozzle orifice where the airflow can carry it away to the collection bin.
The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle combined with suction of your vacuum system provides excellent cleaning results on hard floors of all types, particularly those that will also benefit from polish action of the mop fringe. Hardwood and honed/polished stone floors will show a brighter finish when cleaned over standard vacuuming with a brush, as will all smooth hard floors including tile, laminate and polished concrete. The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle also cleans where no regular floor brush can. The fringe of the floor nozzle easily cleans against the baseboards pulling dust and debris down from above floor level and out from the corners.
The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle was recently updated with a new innovative MicroFiber fringe cleaning pad. Adding the power of MicroFiber has increased spot removal effectiveness and overall efficiency. The exclusive fringe design works more effectively with the vacuum system, provides much more surface contact than a flat pad and still provides open space for airflow to remove debris collected by the nozzle. The new MicroFiber fringe also works great with spray cleaning using a small amount of your favourite neutral floor cleaner in a damp-mop method to pick up sticky messes and add a streak-free shine to your floor. When the MicroFiber mop head becomes laden with dirt and soil that is not pulled into the vacuum, cleaning the mop head is easy. The fringed MicroFiber mop head can be removed from the vacuum nozzle by simply pulling the Velcro attached mophead from the base and dropping it in the washer. It couldn't be easier or faster to maintain the MicroFiber Dry Dust Mop which makes cleaning your hard floors faster than before. And the reusable design offers you a money saving green alternative to disposable floor wipes. Each MicroFiber pad is good for hundreds of washings and thousands of uses.
Another Deluxe feature not often included with most vacuum systems is the hose cover. As part of the CVA360U Ultimate attachment set a Vacsoc knit hose cover is included with free installation on the included power hose.
The Vacsoc was developed as a protective cover and the knitted Vacsoc was built tough for that purpose. It was a homeowner and central vacuum user that developed the Vacsoc years ago, frustrated with marks on his walls caused by his central vacuum hose. The need for the Vacsoc was obvious and a brand was born. The Plastiflex Control Clean dual power crush-proof hose is more flexible and lighter weight, a welcomed advancement from older hoses which scuffed and damaged walls and furniture. The new hose design is very much improved but it also benefits from the protection of a Vacsoc. Along with protecting walls, furniture and baseboards in the home it also helps to protect the hose from twisting, kinking or getting caught on furniture. The Knitted Vacsoc also helps you to get a grip on the new crush-proof hose which has a smooth, slick finish and can be hard to gather up and store on the hanger. Originally developed to alleviate one frustration, the hose cover of today serves many more uses. The Knitted Vacsoc protects your home & your central vacuum hose as well as making your entire central vacuum system easier to use.
Vacsoc. Original & Still the Best!
