How the Reversible Drum Vac Works

How the Reversible Drum Vac Works

The flex hose is attached to the barbed connection on the Reversible Drum Vac system. The knob on the Reversible Drum Vac pump is set to the "fill" position. The air supply valve is opened to permit compressed air at 80 - 100 PSIG (5.5-6.9 BAR) to flow through the Reversible Drum Vac pump which pulls liquid through the flex hose and into the drum. When all liquid is in the drum, the air supply is turned off. If liquid exceeds the drum capacity, the safety shut-off valve will prevent overfilling. The liquid can then be pumped back out of the flex hose by setting the knob on the Reversible Drum Vac pump to the the "empty" position and opening the air supply valve.

Chip Trapper™

Coolant that used to last 6 weeks can now last 6 months!

Vacuums in the liquid with solids, pumps out only the liquid!

Machine tools commonly discharge some chips and shavings into the coolant sump. As the chips accumulate and mound up, the coolant flow used to flood the part and tooling becomes restricted. The patented Chip Trapper™ offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf, and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. It 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 machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers of contaminated liquids. Regular cleaning of the coolant sump with the Chip Trapper can quickly eliminate this very costly problem.

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!

Like the 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. For more difficult industrial tasks, the High Lift Chip Trapper is engineered to produce a more powerful vacuum than the Chip Trapper to enable it to recycle liquid from deep pits, wells, and below grade sumps. It is also able to pump thicker liquids (up to 1400 centipoise) like waste oil, detergents, castrol oil, and acetate glue.

How the Chip Trapper Works

How the Chip Trapper Works

The vacuum hose is attached to the barbed connection on the Chip Trapper system . The directional flow control valve on top of the drum and knob on the pump are set to the "fill" position. The air supply valve is opened to permit compressed air at 80-100 PSIG (5.5 - 6.9 BAR) to flow through the pump which pulls the liquid through the hose, then into the reusable filter bag . When all liquid is in the drum, the air supply is turned off. The filtered liquid can then be pumped out by setting the directional flow control valve on top of the drum and the knob on the pump to the "empty" position. Once the air supply valve is opened, the air pushes the liquid back through the hose while all solids remain in the reusable filter bag.

Chip Vac™

Vacuums chips directly into an open-top drum with no moving parts!

Improved design: Half the noise with the same trusted performance!

EXAIR's Chip Vac is a compressed air driven vacuum designed for continuous industrial use which picks up dry or wet chips and delivers them directly to an ordinary open-top drum. The Chip Vac is used to clean chips from fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws, mills and other industrial equipment. The powerful suction is ideal for fast and efficient cleaning. The Chip Vac has no moving parts which ensures long life and eliminates the purchase of more electric vacuums. The sound level is half that of electric vacs. It include a drum lid with a locking ring that fits an 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 to the drum.

How the Chip Vac Works

How the Chip Vac Works

Compressed air, normally 80-100 PSIG (5.5 - 6.9 BAR), flows through the inlet into an annular plenum chamber . It is then injected into the throat through directed nozzles . These jets of air create a vacuum at the intake which draws material in, accelerates it through the unit , and directs it to the bottom of the drum. The airflow exhausts through the port in the drum lid. Airborne particles are trapped by the filter bag .

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). To prevent material contamination, a poly drum liner can be inserted into the drum.

EXAIR's Heavy Duty Dry  Vac Family
 

Heavy Duty Dry Vac™

Vacuum more material in less time!

Industrial duty vacuum has a rugged construction to resist wear!

EXAIR's Heavy Duty Dry Vac attaches to an ordinary 30, 55 or 110 gallon open-top drum to turn it into a powerful, industrial duty vacuum cleaner. The Heavy Duty Dry Vac has been engineered to vacuum more dry materials in less time with less wear.

Designed for tough industrial environments, the hardened alloy construction resists premature wear while the filter bag traps dust to keep the surrounding air clean. Its durability makes it suitable for a wide variety of applications including the clean up of abrasive materials like steel shot, garnet, metal chips, and sand while its quiet operation makes it useful for general purpose applications like vacuuming floors, machines, work stations, industrial machinery and equipment.

Electrically operated vacuums have motors and impellers that clog and wear out quickly and there's also a potential shock hazard when they are used in standing liquids. The compressed air powered Heavy Duty Dry Vac has no moving parts to wear out or break, assuring long life and, since it is powered with compressed air, the shock hazard is eliminated.

EXAIR's Heavy Duty HEPA Vac Family
 

Heavy Duty HEPA Vac™

A rugged HEPA quality vacuum!

High capacity cleaning for dusty environments!

EXAIR’s compressed air operated Heavy Duty HEPA Vac attaches to an ordinary 30, 55 or 110 gallon open top drum to turn it into a powerful, HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) quality, industrial vacuum cleaner. Like the Heavy Duty Dry Vac, it’s powerfully designed to move more material with less wear. In addition, the Heavy Duty HEPA Vac has been engineered to filter contaminants to HEPA requirements in dusty environments requiring frequent cleaning.

Engineered for dusty environments that require regular cleaning, the HEPA filter is designed with high capacity in mind. Ordinary vacuums can clog up quickly in environments with an abundance of dust or particulates. An economical, easily maintained pre-filter stops larger particles of debris while the HEPA filter handles smaller matter. All of EXAIR’s filters are 100% tested in strict accordance to IEST-RP-CC-007 for minimum 99.97% filtration at the 0.3 micron level to meet HEPA standards. An optional filter protector is available to extend the life of the HEPA filter.

The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac does not use electricity and has no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. This eliminates the risk of electric shock often associated with electric shop vacs. Static resistant hose prevents painful shocks when vacuuming dry, dusty materials.
