High 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!
What is the High Lift Chip Trapper?
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.
Why The High Lift Chip Trapper?
EXAIR's compressed air operated High Lift Chip Trapper System attaches quickly to the included 30, 55 or 110 gallon drum lid. Its high powered vacuum is able to lift liquids up to 15 feet or pump liquids from as far as 20 feet and fill a 55 gallon drum in less than 85 seconds. With the simple turn of a knob, the same stainless steel pump quickly empties the drum. The High Lift Chip Trapper has the extra power you need to move liquids from below grade work areas, sumps or tanks up to 15 feet!
Wells, pits, below grade or elevated tanks can accumulate debris. This debris can cause problems when the liquid is transferred into a machine or process. Waste oil for heating or recycled lubricants which are suitable for dirtier jobs can be used without worry of solids damaging equipment. The heavy duty power of the High Lift Chip Trapper is capable of moving high viscosity liquids up to 1400 centipoise.
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.
