An Intelligent Compressed Air ProductHigh Lift Chip Trapper™

Filter chips and solids out of used coolant and liquids from below grade sumps or elevated tanks!

Vacuum in liquid with solids and pump out only the liquid, with 15 feet of lift!


The patented* High Lift Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. The High Lift Chip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris and traps all the solids in a reusable filter bag. Only the liquid pumps back out. It is ideal for use on pits, wells, below grade sumps, tanks and storage containers of contaminated liquids.


The High Lift Chip Trapper uses EXAIR’s compressed air powered Reversible Drum Vac (included) that can fill or empty a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. Simply set the Reversible Drum Vac pump and directional flow control valve on top of the drum to “fill” for it to quickly vacuum the liquid with solids. Once the sump, pit or tank is empty, set the pump and directional valve to “empty” for it to pump out clean coolant/liquid. All the chips and other solids are trapped inside the reusable filter bag of the High Lift Chip Trapper.

Like all of EXAIR's industrial vacuums, the High Lift Chip Trapper uses no electricity and has no moving parts which assures maintenance free operation. It is designed for continuous and heavy duty applications where electric vacuums fail due to motor wear or clogged impellers. This vacuum efficiently and safely uses the compressed air in your facility. An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents overfilling.
