For wet cleanups, the filter can be quickly removed. The industrial strength EasySwitch has no moving parts and no electric motors to burn out. It mounts to any open top 55 gallon drum.

Quick Boat Cleanup

A company cleans oily engine sump water as well as dry dust and pebbles off of boats after they transit a lock system. To speed up the process, they use a Model 6101 EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac System to quickly change between wet and dry cleanups.

The stainless steel pump can quickly fill a drum and, with the turn of a knob, can quickly empty it, too! An automatic safety shutoff prevents spills and overfilling. A more powerful High Lift Reversible Drum Vac is also available to pump from deep wells or sumps.

Transferring Hydraulic Oil

Company manufactures elevators for agriculture. When they have installed an elevator, they need to fill the hydraulic system. They were using a hand pump to transfer hydraulic oil from 55 gallon barrels. Substituting the hand pump for a Model 6196 Reversible Drum Vac they were able transfer 10 times faster than a hand pump. This reduced their fill time from 25-30 minutes to a mere 3 minutes.

Chip Trappers

engineered to quickly separate chips, shavings, and other debris from machine coolant, part washing fluid, and other liquids so that the liquid can be reused. This powerful, compressed air powered vacuum draws in the liquid through a fine filter and into a 30, 55, or 110 gallon drum. There are no impellers to clog or electric motors to burn out.

Machine Shop Wants to Save Money on Coolant

A company operates several CNC machines and is looking for a way to save money on the expensive coolant that they need. They purchased a Model 6198 55 Gallon Chip Trapper System to filter debris out of the coolant in the sump so that they could reuse it. Coolant that they could only use for 6 weeks before could now be used for up to 6 months!

Chip Vacs

are great for cleanup of metal, wood, or plastic chips around factory work spaces. A filter bag is included to reduce dust. It quickly attaches to any 30 or 55 gallon drum, making it easy to sort chips for recycling. Combine the lack of impellers to clog or electric motors to burn out with its hardened alloy construction, and the Chip Vac is perfectly suited for a demanding industrial environment. A 5 gallon Mini Chip Vac is also available for smaller cleanups.

Recovering Grass Seed

Customer processes and bags seed. On their grass seed line they experience considerable amount of loss due to spillage. Typically they would sweep it up and trash it. Using a Model 6193 Chip Vac System they were able to reclaim lost product in and around the machines. While the recovered product could not be used in the certified product, they were able to add it to the "contractors" blend. The cost savings amounted to $2500 annually.

Heavy Duty Dry Vacs

is a powerful vacuum that's engineered for general dry cleanup around production lines and workstations. It quickly attaches to any 30, 55, or 110 gallon drum. The hardened alloy construction and increased power make it ideal for cleanup of abrasives like steel shot, garnet, metal chips, and sand. A filter bag is included to reduce dust.

Heavy Duty Dry Vac Makes For Quick Cleanup of Military Vehicle Rebuild Lines

This customer refurbishes and rebuilds military vehicles and they wanted to speed up the cleaning process. They process the vehicles "assembly line" style and the work areas must be cleaned before thy can proceed to the next station. The debris mainly consists of metal parts and 1/2"-3/4" steel bolts. Instead of sweeping or blowing the debris around, they now use a Model 6397 55 Gallon Premium Heavy Duty Dry Vac. This gives the operators enough vacuum power - and a variety of heavy duty tools - to allow them to quickly and easily clean their work areas.

Heavy Duty HEPA Vacs

is engineered for high capacity cleaning in dusty manufacturing environments. This powerful compressed air powered vacuum attaches to an ordinary 30, 55, or 110 gallon open top drum and comes with HEPA quality filtration. It's perfect for cleanup sanding stations, buffing booths, ducts, and anywhere else that dusts builds up.

Heavy Duty HEPA Vac Cleans Machinery, Reclaims Precious Metals

In the process of making electrical connectors, small shavings and pieces of precious metals accumulate around the machine. Typically, these were swept up and discarded. Customer implemented a Model 6299 Deluxe Heavy Duty HEPA Vac to clean up the work area. This was faster than sweeping, and they were able to reclaim the precious metals.


are compressed air powered, portable, small job cleanup tools. They can be used for cleanup or transfer of small quantities of dry material. They can also be reversed for use as a blowoff gun. Its durable die cast construction, light weight, and lack of moving parts make it a great small task tool. A more powerful Deep Hole Vac-u-Gun is also available for cleanup from deeper grooves, containers, and drilled holes.

Vacuum Transfer of Defective Product

At an inspection station the operators pick out defective blueberries across a 3’ wide conveyor belt. It is difficult for the operators to reach across the conveyor and some defective product is getting missed. Using a Model 6292 Vac-u-Gun with an extension wand, the operator was able to get to the hard to reach areas without missing any defective product. Another advantage is that operator did not have to manually discard the berries. Eliminating this step they were able to speed the belt up 10% without missing any defective product.
