Our Technology

With Riccar’s top-of-the-line vacuum cleaners, you’ll experience a clean unlike any other. Tandem Air Technology combines two technologies for exceptional carpet cleaning, strong suction for attachments and advanced HEPA media filtration -- all in one vacuum.

How It Works

Most vacuums have either a clean air motor or a direct air motor. Each motor and type of technology has its strengths.

Clean air technology sucks the air through the filter, bringing dirt along with it. It’s great for advance filtration and for cleaning with attachments.

Direct air technology agitates carpet fibers, releasing dirt particles. It’s well-suited for carpet cleaning.

Tandem Air vacuums have both types of technology that work together – in tandem – to pull up deep-down dirt and lift it up and into the bag where it’s trapped in multiple layers of HEPA media filtration. And you won’t suffer tool suction for this advanced level of cleaning. The result is a level of clean you’ve never seen.

Let Us Show Off

You’ll find the revolutionary and exclusive Tandem Air Technology in the Riccar Radiance and Brilliance uprights and in select models of the Prima canister. Ask for a Tandem Air demonstration. You’ll quickly see why every other vacuum with either a clean air motor or a direct air motor is no match for both motor systems in one machine.
