Miele S4210 Carina Canister Vacuum
Miele has been designing and
manufacturing products for the home since 1899. They produced their first
vacuum cleaner in 1927. Their products are world renowned for their power,
durability and performance. They pay a lot of attention to many little
details as well as the overall picture, enabling them to create vacuums
which are very user friendly and durable. With the introduction of the S4
Galaxy series, Miele has successfully incorporated many of the outstanding
features of their midsize and fullsize canister vacuums into a much
smaller and lighter vacuum. With the vacuum itself weighing in at only
10 pounds, you will really appreciate the ease of use without
sacrificing the performance and durability for which Miele is so well
know. As with all Miele products, all this vacuum's advanced technology
and incredible power is harnessed within a truly beautiful work of art.
You may even be tempted to purchase a Miele S4210 Sirius Galaxy Vacuum on
its looks alone.
||Multi-Layer Filtration System
The Miele S4210 Carina uses a multi-layer filtration system which
increases the life of the high filtration exhaust filter. The air passes
through their high filtration 3-Layer IntensiveClean Plus Bag
and a secondary
electrostatic filter before reaching
the special exhaust filter. Each layer of filtration captures more
particles as the air passes through them. Ideally, multi-layer filtration
enhances performance by ensuring good air flow through the system. It
prevents large particles from reaching and blocking the exhaust filter,
saving it for critical particle retention.
The Miele Carina canister vacuum cleaner comes standard with their
Super Air Clean exhaust filter
for those desiring outstanding filtration but who do not have dust related
sensitivities which require the level of filtration which meets the
stringent HEPA specification.
In a study conducted by the Department of Medicine, Division of Allergy
and Clinical Immunology at the University of Virginia, the Miele vacuum
cleaner with the Super Air Clean filter was tested, along with eight other
leading brands, to determine if vacuum cleaner efficiency affects the
level of airborne allergens commonly found in the home, such as pet dander
and dust mite feces. The results indicate that some vacuum cleaners
substantially increase allergens in the air. The study proved Miele
captures virtually all the dust, dirt and allergens you pick up, improving
the quality of the air you breathe. Newer optional Certified HEPA filters
provide even greater filtration, producing net filtration which meets
the stringent HEPA specification.
Using the Miele S4210 Carina canister vacuum differs from your typical
home vacuum cleaner because of its special high filtration capabilities
and its Sealed System. This means that the
sub-micrometer dust you pick up actually
reaches the high filtration exhaust filter and is not blown out through
minute cracks in the case or around the exhaust filter like many competing
cleaners with high filtration exhaust filters.
Vacuum cleaners are designed so that air flows through the nozzle and
hose into the dustbag, and then through any additional filters before
leaving the machine at the exhaust. Filters capable of achieving
sub-micrometer filtration are important but equally important is how much of
the air flow containing these
allergens, etc. actually passes through the filters to be cleaned by them.
With the Miele Sealed System you can rest
assured that all the air flow passes through and is filtered by the
Super Air Clean or optional
Active Certified HEPA or
Active Air Clean exhaust
filters. Having a completely sealed system also helps improve suction by
ensuring that all air flow through the motor is also pulled through the
hose and attachments, not entering through unsealed joints in the case,
wands and attachments.
||High Performance IntensiveClean Plus Dustbag
Miele's revolutionary new IntensiveClean Plus dustbag offers
unbeatable advantages which really enhance the performance of the Miele
S4210 Carina canister vacuum cleaner. First and foremost, the unique new
material which composes IntensiveClean Plus dustbags has made significant
progress in the quality of filtration:
Thanks to its intricate web of three-ply random-spun
polymer fibers, far more tiny
particles and allergens are retained than with conventional dustbags. This
alone accounts for a reduction in dust emissions from the dustbag of up to
50%, based on levels which were already extremely low. Therefore, this
vacuum's secondary filter and high efficiency exhaust filter will be kept
cleaner, providing outstanding cleaning performance with reduced
resistance to the
The enhanced composition of IntensiveClean Plus virtually eliminates
clogging, improving cleaning performance even further. This material
captures millions of tiny dust particles and holds them tight within its
fibers, keeping the pores of the dustbag open longer. As a result, this
Miele vacuum cleaner retains its excellent cleaning performance, even
when the dustbag is full. This special polymer material also makes the
dustbag practically tear-proof. The risk of damage caused by sharp,
pointed objects in the bag is now a thing of the past.
||Optional High Efficiency Filters
For those with dust related allergies or asthma, Miele has an optional
Active Certified HEPA Filter which is
tested and certified that it will meet the stringent
HEPA specification. It will retain all
particles as small as 0.3
µm (micrometers - formerly microns)
in size with an efficiency rating of 99.97%. The HEPA acronym is used
primarily in the USA whereas Europeans often refer to this same filter as an
S-Class filter. This indicates that
the filter meets standards like the British Standard 5415 and German
norm: DIN 2418B Ti-E EU 13 for filtration performance. Miele's Active
Certified HEPA Filter even includes a thin layer of
Activated Charcoal for
trapping unpleasant odors as well. When purchasing your new Miele from
Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service, turn it into an outstanding allergy
vacuum with extremely low dust emissions by adding the Active Certified HEPA
filter for only
Miele even has a special filter designed for the pet lovers in our
world. Their Active Air Clean Filter
features a thick layer of Activated Charcoal
sandwiched between two Super Air Clean filters for outstanding odor
trapping abilities. It's great for cat & dog owners. When purchasing your new
Miele from Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service, turn it into an allergy vacuum
with very low dust and odor emissions by adding the Active Air Clean filter
The optional Active Certified HEPA Filter or the Active Air Clean
Filter can be used instead of the Super Air Clean exhaust
filter which comes standard in all Miele S4 Galaxy series canister vacuums.
The Super Air Clean filter removes nearly 94% of particles as small as 0.3
µm, providing very clean exhausted air for those who don't have special
||Complete HEPA Certified Vacuum Cleaner System
The Miele S4210 Carina canister vacuum, when used with an optional Certified HEPA filter
joins the others in their S500i and S600i series which represent the
world's first ever HEPA certified vacuum cleaner system. People
especially concerned with indoor-air quality will be pleased to know that
the filtration system with optional Certified HEPA filter in the Miele
S4210 Carina vacuum was tested by the DMT Air Quality Test Institute and
certified that it is in compliance with the stringent EN 1822 standard.
By testing the particle retention of the entire unit's filtration
system it is one of the world's most stringent filtration standards. Much
to Miele's delight, virtually all particulate matter was contained within
this vacuum cleaner system, earning the S4 Galaxy series the certificate
of HEPA certification. The Miele S4210 Carina vacuum, when combined with
the optional Certified HEPA
Filter in their completely sealed system, provides the lowest vacuum
cleaner dust emissions available for your home environment.
||Efficient Miele Vortex Suction Motor
The powerful 1200 Watt, Miele
Vortex suction motor produces plenty of
suction for cleaning your home.
This high performance motor has fan parts that are
aerodynamically designed with no parallel surfaces and nine long fan
scoops compared to the typical six shorter ones. These scoops are quite
wide near the hub of the fan and become more narrow toward the outer edge
similar to that of a jet engine compressor. This single stage "compressor
design" optimizes the air flow and
increases the overall motor efficiency. Featuring lifetime lubricated
ball bearings, well balanced motor
parts, enhanced motor suspension and lining of the motor housing, the
Miele Carina vacuum will perform quietly for many years. Due to its
typical life expectancy of 1200 hours, Miele proudly warranties this motor
for seven years. To learn more about this outstanding motor, see our
article on the
Miele Vortex Motor.
||Electronic Motor Speed Control
This Miele S4210 Carina canister vacuum cleaner is also equipped with an
electronic motor speed control which adjusts the
air flow to over 150
CFM, giving you complete control when you
clean. The speed control dial, which is completely variable with six click
stops (six stage), enables you to select the proper amount of power for
cleaning anything from draperies to carpets. Reducing the
suction prevents curtains, upholstery or
area rugs from inadvertently being drawn into the cleaning nozzle.
||Versatile Stainless Steel Telescopic Wand
The stainless steel telescopic wand on the Carina S4210 vacuum
cleaners can be adjusted to match your individual stature. The Miele S200i
and S300i series have individual, fixed length steel wands instead of this
more versatile telescopic wand. For storage, it collapses to about half
height to save storage space. It is well sealed at all joints to maintain
Miele's outstanding performance. This is a good example of how Miele goes
to great lengths, even with small details, to ensure the quality,
performance and beauty of their products.
||All Three Wheels Swivel 360°
This Miele vacuum cleaner is designed to track nicely behind you as you
pull it by the hose. It is equipped with three wheels which turn a full
360° making it very easy to maneuver and very stable. Going over
electrical cords, door thresholds and around furniture is a breeze. Since
it can be moved in any direction, being able to easily push it out of your
path when working near the machine is an added convenience.
||Optional Carpet Cleaning Nozzles
To increase the performance on carpeted floors,
agitation of the carpet fibers by a revolving
brush roll is required. The optional
SAB 100-3 Accu Nova Electro Brush
is designed to deep clean low to medium carpet naps. The Accu Nova Electro
Brush automatically stops the revolving brush roll when used on bare floors.
Using long-lasting, rechargeable nickel metal hydride batteries, this nozzle
provides consistent brushing action, being driven by an electric motor without
the inconvenience of a cord that needs to be plugged into the hose. A battery
charger and two batteries are included with the Accu Nova Electro Brush. Each
battery delivers over 45 minutes of run time and recharges in only five hours.
STB 205-3 Turbobrush is
driven by the air flow instead of an electric motor. This nozzle can be
used to clean small areas of bare floors as well but the brush roll is
always spinning. Since the brush is driven by a turbine instead of an electric
motor, it's brushing action isn't as consistent as on the SAB 100-3
Accu Nova Electro Brush shown above.
Miele provides a year of peace of mind, knowing that you will not have
the expense of a repair which is covered by their standard One Year
Limited Warranty. In addition to this, the Miele Seven Year Limited Motor
Warranty provides six additional years of peace of mind, knowing that you
will not have the expense of a suction motor repair which is covered by
this warranty. These limited warranties are reduced to six months if the
vacuum cleaner is used for commercial purposes.
