Hoses for canister vacuum cleaners

Definition of the application

A canister vacuum cleaner consists of a floor tool, a wand, a handle, a hose and a canister. The canister contains the motor and the dust collection unit.

Since the canister is equipped with wheels, canister vacuum cleaners are easy to handle. You don’t need to carry them, you can simply drag them along over the floor. 

Plastiflex and floor care

Floor care has changed tremendously over the last 100 years. For centuries, a broom was the preferred way to clean floors.

Once the dustpan was developed, a mechanical sweeper was introduced. After that, various types of vacuum cleaners were designed using different mechanisms to generate a vacuum, e.g. a hand pump, a gas driven vacuum cleaner, etc.

Finally, the electrical vacuum cleaner as we know it was developed. The main parts of a vacuum cleaner are the vacuum pump (motor), hose, wand, and floor tool.
