At Workshop, we're occasionally asked what a wet / dry vac is and how it works. A wet / dry vac is an essential tool in the home and garage and is often considered a vac for the shop professional. This is mostly due to the versatility that the vacuum provides, allowing for cleaning larger debris and wet messes. Broken down to the most basic elements, the wet / dry vac is a highly flexible vacuum cleaner that works well in many environments. Safely located inside the vac, the motor drives the fan that draws air through the most familiar end to the user, the hose. As the air passes into the hose, it increases in speed and creates suction allowing the vac the pick up particles, debris, or liquid. As the air enters the larger chamber, the air slows down and the debris is released. The size of this drum reflects the volume available for liquid or debris collection. The air is then pulled through the filter. Filters for most vacs come in multiple levels of filtration. Some capture standard debris or fine particles such as drywall dust. Others are specifically designed for water. The filter is fastened to a cage which contains the float. When the user is picking up a high volume of water, the float is designed to raise with the water level and let a user know to shut off the vac by restricting air flow, reducing performance, and changing pitch. The filter and cage is attached to a lid that securely latches to the drum, and when in use, it seals, preventing debris from escaping. The fan pulling the air throw the filter is driven by the motor that is located on the other side of the lid to keep it protected from the liquid and debris. The air is then vented out through a blowing port, usually located on the upper portion of the vacuum. Finishing the main components is the motor cover, which is the shroud over the motor. As you can see, a wet / dry vac is a vacuum that when properly used, can safely and efficiently pick up wet and dry debris.
