Miele C2 Limited Edition Vacuum Cleaner Introduction
Miele has been designing and manufacturing products for the home since 1899. They produced their first vacuum cleaner in 1927 and celebrated their 100th Anniversary in June of 1999. Their products are world renowned for their power, durability and performance. The introduction of the Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum, with its beautiful Canary Yellow finish, reflects their commitment to designing and manufacturing outstanding vacuum cleaners. As with all Miele products, all its advanced technology and incredible power is harnessed within a truly beautiful work of art. You may even be tempted to purchase a Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum cleaner on its looks alone.
Multi-Layer Filtration System
The Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum cleaner uses a multi-layer filtration system which increases the life of the high filtration exhaust filter. The air passes through their high filtration AirClean 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 C2 Limited Edition vacuum 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 13 specification.
The Miele Sealed System
Using the Miele C2 Limited Edition canister vacuum differs from your typical home vacuum cleaner because of its special high filtration capabilities built into its system. The Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum is carefully designed so 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. To protect you even more the dustbag is designed to automatically close its opening when you open the vacuum to remove it for disposal.
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 C2 Limited Edition vacuum you can rest assured that all the air flow passes through and is filtered by the Super Air Clean or optional HEPA AirClean and Active Air Clean exhaust filters.
High Performance AirClean Dustbag
Miele's revolutionary new AirClean dustbag offers unbeatable advantages which really enhance the performance of the Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum cleaners. First and foremost, the unique new material which composes HyClean 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 exhaust filter will be kept cleaner, providing outstanding cleaning performance with reduced resistance to the air flow.
The enhanced composition of the AirClean bag 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, Miele vacuum cleaners retain their excellent cleaning performance, even when their dustbags are 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 HEPA AirClean exhaust filter which meets the stringent HEPA 13 specification. It has been proven to retain over 99.99% of dust particles. It only needs to be replaced approximately once a year. A special "Timestrip" provides a visual indication of when the filter should be replaced. Packaged in a white case, the SF-HA 50 HEPA AirClean filter takes clean air to an even higher level. It replaces the former SF-AH 50 HEPA filter in a light blue case which met the "HEPA 12" specification. When purchasing your new Miele Topaz from Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service, turn it into an outstanding allergy vacuum with extremely low dust emissions by adding the HEPA AirClean filter.
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 C2 Limited 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.
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 C2 Limited Edition 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 Powerful Miele Vortex Motor.
Electronic Motor Speed Control
The C2 Limited Edition vacuum is also equipped with six different motor speed settings which adjusts the air flow to over 150 CFM, giving you complete control when you clean. The electronic speed control dial on the vacuum enables you to easily select the proper amount of power for cleaning anything from draperies to medium height carpeting. Reducing the suction prevents curtains, upholstery or area rugs from inadvertently being drawn into the cleaning nozzle.
This Miele vacuum, along with others in the Miele S5, S8 and C3 series, has special sound insulation which makes it particularly quiet. The new "Silence Setting" combines the lowest noise level with the ideal power level for the most efficient cleaning results. When operating at this level the vacuum is actually quieter than a pot of boiling water. Now that is quiet!
Versatile Stainless Steel Telescopic Wand
The stainless steel telescopic wand on the C2 Limited Edition vacuum cleaners can be adjusted to match your individual stature. 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.
Air Driven Turbobrush for Carpets
The Miele C2 Limited Edition canister comes complete with the Miele STB 205-3 Turbobrush for deep cleaning low or medium nap carpets. It incorporates a turbine to obtain its power to drive the 10 1/2" wide revolving brush roll from the air flow passing through the system. By doing so, it is drawing power from the main suction motor, actually reducing the air flow through the system. A cog type belt is used to provide positive power transfer from the turbine to the brush roll. Since this nozzle does not require electric to operate, it can be used on the standard non-electric hose.
The Miele C2 Limited Edition is designed for those with limited amounts of carpeted floors who can't justify the higher cost of a vacuum with a motorized powerbrush. The SEB 217-3 Powerbrush on the Miele Callisto actually adds more power to the system instead of drawing its power from the air flow as this vacuum's turbobrush does.
Convenient Covered Attachment Storage
The Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum carries its three small attachments conveniently tucked away in the covered tool storage on the main unit where they are always easily accessible. This design reduces the risk of bumping these attachments, accidentally knocking them from the vacuum cleaner. The dusting brush has soft, natural hair bristles which will not curl and mat like synthetic ones tend to do. The upholstery nozzle has two red strips which are like the "magic lint brushes", capturing the lint, hairs and threads and then cleaning themselves on the reverse stroke.
All Three Wheels Swivel 360°
The Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum cleaners are designed to track nicely behind you as you pull them by the hose. They are equipped with three wheels which turn a full 360° making them 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.
Additional Deluxe Features
The Miele C2 Limited Edition vacuum is designed with many deluxe features not found on other Miele vacuum cleaners nor competing brands. These include an extra large 1 1/3" (34mm) inside diameter hose, large primary filter and more bag compartment ribbing for increased air flow. The redesigned case has an extra wide wrap around bumper for improved furniture protection and more ground clearance for thicker carpets.
