Filter System (Included)

  • Filters
    • Active H.E.P.A. Filter
      The Active H.E.P.A. (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter not only captures and retains tiny, lung-damaging particles (including dust mite feces and pollen), it also uses the same Generally Activated Charcoal filter (GAC) that the Active Air Clean filter uses to absorb odors. This Miele filter conforms to the new stringent European standard for filtration (EN 1822) which means that it actually traps 99.99% of all particles as tiny as 0.3 of a micron. These filters are so well designed that they only need to be replaced after 50 hours of use, or approximately 12 months. There is also a convenient spot to write the date on the filter, which takes the guesswork out of when the filter should be replaced
  • Bags
    • 4.76 quart, Type G/N, HyClean dustbag, with spring-loaded, self-sealing collar
      Miele’s revolutionary and patented dustbag is an important component of the vacuum cleaners filtration system. Our unique HyCleanTM bag is a 9-layer fortress of electrostatically charged material that traps micro-sized debris in the airtight vacuum chamber. With its spring-loaded, self-locking collar you’re never exposed to the tiny, lung-damaging dust and allergens you worked to vacuum up!

  • Canister Construction
    • Sealed System construction
      For over 75 years, our research, development and quality control laboratories have tested methods to effectively pick up and, most importantly, retain dust and other indoor air pollutants. After collecting volumes of data, engineers and designers continue to reach the firm conclusion that Miele's system is the most effective and hygienic method of removing particulate matter from the home. Our exclusive combination of a Sealed SystemTM using the very best raw materials, electrostatically charged IntensiveClean PlusTM dust/filter bag and a selection of high-quality filter cartridges, including the first certified HEPA filter, provide the essential formula for this success. As a matter of fact, the new S4 Galaxy series has been awarded certification by the DMT Air Quality Testing Institute, an independent institute that monitors air hygiene. The S4 joins other Miele vacuums—which were the world's first to receive this certificate—with a top rating of "excellent air quality". This certification refers to Miele's HEPA filter and the vacuum cleaner working together as a Sealed SystemTM to provide maximum protection for indoor air quality. Please exercise caution when evaluating other vacuum filtration systems, since there are many gimmicks that do not work as effectively or scientifically. Since this is an area where poor results can be devastating to young or elderly lungs, or to anyone who suffers from allergies or asthma, you may want to visit a local authorized Miele dealer to discuss the importance of the indoor air quality in your home and how a Miele vacuum cleaner can improve it
