If its the same as the SIP 50 litre then it will clear up everything that can go up the hose.
I bitterly regret not replacing mine when the motor died (the alternative replacement I bought is rubbish).
I made an enclosure from 22 mm mdf and greatly reduced the noise levels. There are many utube vids showing how to make the cabinets. Most use expensive honeycomb foam on the inside, but I just used old blankets, loosely fastened to the inside surfaces.
