Impacted by the pandemic, cleanliness now takes on a new meaning. Increasing public awareness regarding health and hygiene and the development of AI, 5G, and IoT technology brings a new trend into the cleaning appliances market and smart home market. More and more people show more willingness to try new emerged appliances such as the latest robot vacuum, wireless vacuum cleaner, wet/dry vacuum, etc. According to the statistics, global sales of cleaning appliances are estimated to close in on US$ 15 Bn by the end of 2031, increasing at a CAGR of 10%, mostly driven by developments in the residential sector, which holds more than 65% of market share. Furthermore, the global smart home market is projected to grow from USD 84.5 billion in 2021 to USD 138.9 billion by 2026; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2021 to 2026.
Nowadays, compared with traditional upright vacuum cleaners, wet/dry vacuums become more and more popular, especially among pet owners. As the emerging cleaning appliance, the upgrade of the upright wet/dry vacuum cleaner may be the breaking point to capturing the cleaning appliances market and smart home market. However limited by technologies, a wide range of manufacturers of vacuum cleaners apply diaphragm pump as the water pump, which could be troubled by the water-tightness and the control of water flow. In order to solve the problems, ZHAOWEI proudly puts forward the peristaltic pump drive system solutions to help manufactures to move the products into the intelligent era.
How ZHAOWEI Improves Peristaltic Pump
Ensure Water Tightness
A peristaltic pump is a type of positive displacement pump used for pumping a variety of fluids. The fluid is contained in a flexible tube fitted inside a circular pump casing. The part of the tube under compression is closed, forcing the fluid to move through the tube. Additionally, as the tube opens to its natural state after the rollers pass, more fluid is drawn into the tube. It provides excellent problem solving pumping solutions especially when the product being pumped is particularly abrasive, corrosive, or viscous. ZHAOWEI’s peristaltic pump drive system controls the roller clamps to squeeze the fluid hose outward through a spiral lever to precisely control the transmission of liquid, which avoid leaving excess water stains and save water.
Precisely Control Water Flow
For many users whether could precisely control water flow is one of the most essential factors when choosing the upright wet/dry vacuum cleaner brand. If water output too much at one time when doing cleaning, the user has to take time to dry the floor after using, which twice his/her efforts. A perfect upright wet/dry vacuum cleaner should output water flow at a suitable level, enabling vacuum and wash at the same time and dry the floor within a few passes. To achieve precise control of water flow, the gear motor drive system is one of the most important components. Instead of the commonly used planetary module, ZHAOWEI applies a parallel module to the upright wet/dry vacuum cleaner drive system. A parallel gear drive is one type of gear motor which uses gears to accomplish the speed reduction. With the advantages of compact size and low vibration, it can precisely control output torque that is ideal for applications where space is limited, such as robot vacuums and upright vacuum cleaners.
Reduce Noise and Improve Efficiency
Noise and efficiency are also key factors that influence people buying willingness. Among several choices of gear motors, there are three common options. The first option brushed DC gear motor is one of the most mature technologies that is widely applied to smart home devices and cleaning appliances, using DC current with mechanical commutation to generate mechanical energy. The second option brushless DC gear motor generates power with the permanent magnetic field, which is more complicated and expansive than a brushed DC motor. The third option stepper gear motor is another kind of DC motor, which can provide the largest torque among these three gear motor options. Undoubtedly, when it comes to noise and efficiency, a brushless DC motor is the best choice. And when it comes to reliability, a stepper gear motor could achieve the best performance. Also, it can ensure the maximum torque with low speed. However, when it comes to cost, brushed DC is the best choice with medium noise, efficiency, and torque. ZHAOWEI, a company that committed to gear motor drive systems in smart home fields for more than 20 years, can satisfy customer requirements according to different using circumstances.
Together to Achieve a More Convenient Life
Definitely, gear motors open up a smart life for the users who are looking for a wet/dry vacuum cleaner solution. It is necessary to take full advantage of the top gear motors to empower the peristaltic pump micro drive system. Together with ZHAOWEI, we will make efforts to turn the competition into opportunity and create a smarter and more convenient life for consumers.
