Chip Vac™What is the Chip Vac?
|EXAIR's Chip Vac picks up dry or wet chips and delivers them directly to an ordinary drum. Chip Vac is used to clean chips from fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws, mills and other industrial equipment. Now, with a 30% increase in vacuum, it is our most powerful Chip Vac ever!
EXAIR's Mini Chip Vac System delivers the same cleaning power for small jobs. The Model 6193-5 Mini Chip Vac System comes complete with a 5 gallon drum, vacuum hose, chip wand and all the tools.
Why The Chip Vac?
The compressed air operated Chip Vac is an industrial duty vacuum designed specifically for vacuuming chips. It creates a powerful direct flow action that vacuums metal, wood or plastic chips into an ordinary drum. Designed for occasional use with dusty materials, the included filter bag keeps the surrounding air clean.
Electrically operated "all purpose" vacuums aren't designed for use in industrial environments. As a result, motors wear out quickly and impellers clog. The Chip Vac has no moving parts to wear out or break which ensures long life. Sound level is half that of electric vacuums.
The Chip Vac Systems include a drum lid with a locking ring that fits any open top drum. In less than a minute, the Chip Vac can be removed and easily placed onto another drum to keep different materials separate for recycling. Constant heavy lifting and dumping of the vacuum cleaner tanks is eliminated since all chips are vacuumed directly into the drum.

The Mini Chip Vac allows for easy clean up of small messes.
NOTE: The Chip Vac System can be used with an open head steel, fiber or plastic drum that is in good condition (ANSI Standard #MH2-2004). A steel drum with nominal thickness of 1.5mm (16 gauge) is recommended. To prevent material contamination, a poly drum liner can be inserted into the drum.
Warning: Do not use with combustible dust.
