SLG is official manufacturer of test stands according to DIN EN and IEC 60312, respectively, and official distributor of Wilton test carpets.

WG3 carpet beating machine

The carpet beating machine is designed for conditioning test carpets used for dust removal tests of vacuum cleaners. 

It complies with the requirements of IEC 60312.

WG3 test stand for determining the performance characteristics of vacuum cleaners

We construct this test stand in accordance with the requirements of IEC 60312. The following measurements can be performed:

  • Dust removal from carpets with maximum and reduced power
  • Dust removal from floor crevices
  • Determination of motion resistance of vacuum cleaners
  • Specific energy consumption

Reference vacuum box RSB

The reference vacuum box is a measurement system for continuously recording and displaying parameters relevant for dust removal similar to vacuum cleaners:

  • Power input
  • Relative pressure in the dust bag compartment
  • Rotational speed of fan motor
  • Rotational speed of brush bar
