Ametek Motors in a Sealed Chamber The Heart of the Cirrus Upright Cirrus vauum cleaners use only the best motors from AMETEK Electric, to insure long life and touble free performance. These durable motors are installed in a sealed chamber to assure that the dust is exhausted through the filter--NOT out of the seams of the vacuum cleaner. This gives you a cleaner home and less dust emissions!
