Bags are Better! –
Top-fill, three and four-layer bags are an integral part of
SEBO's filtration system because they hold virtually all dirt
captured by the vacuum, which improves the effectiveness
and useful life of the microfilters. They also ensure continuously
strong suction because dirt enters from the top, deposits
at the bottom, accumulates upward, and air exits
through the sides, which allows unimpeded airflow as they
fill to capacity. And they can be sealed when full, so no dust
can escape into the air during bag removal and disposal.
In contrast, without bags to hold nearly all the captured dirt, the microfilters
on bagless vacuums quickly clog from excessive dirt build-up and must be
replaced often, or a loss of suction and cleaning effectiveness will occur. In
addition, dust and other allergens become airborne when emptying bagless
dirt containers. Lastly, bagless vacuum microfilters are expensive, usually
costing more than a multi-year supply of SEBO filter bags.

Pre-motor Filters – Pre-motor filters clean suction air after it passes through the filter bag, but before it passes over the vacuum motor. Cooling the motor with clean air is important because this increases useful life expectancy.
S-class Exhaust Microfilters – S-class Exhaust Microfilters (S = “Schwebstoff” = airborne particles) are made from electrostatically charged
micro-fiber material, which attracts and captures dust particles from the airflow
of the vacuum after it passes over the motor to cool it. This means that exhaust
air is cleaned to the highest level. The S-class Standard requires filters to
absorb greater than 99.9% of particles down to 0.3 microns in diameter. For
comparison, 100 microns is the diameter of a human hair. Their advantages
are a relatively open texture that allows smoother airflow for better suction
performance, a longer life expectancy, and they cost less than HEPA filters.
