High Lift Chip Trapper™ Vacuum System
EXAIR's patented* High Lift Chip Trapper™ offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids that are in wells, pits, or cisterns. Using the High Lift Chip Trapper, you can pump farther, pump higher and pump thicker liquids. The 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 machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers of contaminated liquids. *Patent #8153001 and #8268179
Warning: Do not use with any material that has a low flash point or with flammable liquids such as fuel oil, alcohol, mineral spirits, gasoline, or kerosene.

How the EXAIR High Lift Chip Trapper Works
The vacuum hose (1) is attached to the barbed connection of the High Lift Chip Trapper (2). The directional flow control valve on top of the drum (3) and knob on the pump (4) 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 (5). 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.
Warning: Do not use with any material that has a low flash point or with flammable liquids such as fuel oil, alcohol, mineral spirits, gasoline or kerosene.

Selecting the Right EXAIR Industrial Vacuum
EXAIR’s patent pending EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac simplifies the filter change process when switching from vacuuming a dry material to a liquid or vice versa. Utilizing minimal compressed air, the EasySwitch is a powerful pneumatic vacuum that is ideal for any application - wet, dry, light and heavy. It rests upon any 55 gallon drum.
Chip Vac picks up dry or wet chips and delivers them directly to an ordinary drum. It is used to clean chips from fixtures, machines, parts and work surfaces. The lid can be moved easily from drum to drum to materials separate from recycling. Available in 5, 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities.
The Reversible Drum Vac is a two-way liquid vacuum that can fill or empty a 55 gallon drum in 90 seconds! It is ideal for spill recovery and filling or emptying coolant sumps. It has no moving parts to wear out. Available in 5, 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities.
High Lift Reversible Drum Vac is a two-way liquid vacuum that can fill or empty a 55 gallon drum in just 85 seconds from 15 feet! Its powerful pump provides the high lift needed to fill or empty below grade coolant sumps, pits and cisterns. Available in 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities.
The Heavy Duty Dry Vac turns an ordinary drum into a powerful, industrial duty vacuum cleaner. It vacuums more dry materials in less time than ordinary vacs. It is ideal for vacuuming abrasives like steel shot, garnet, metal chips and sand. Available in 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities.
Heavy Duty HEPA Vac is a rugged HEPA quality vacuum with high capacity cleaning for dusty environments. It is 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. Available in 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities.
The Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean solids such as chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. It is ideal for use on machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers. Available in 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities.
High Lift Chip Trapper has additional power to clean liquids from solids at greater distances or deeper depths like below grade sumps and cisterns. It efficiently separates solids like chips, swarf and metal shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. It is also capable of moving high viscosity liquids of up to 1400 centipoise! Available in 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities.
Vac-u-Gun is a vacuum gun, blowoff gun, and transfer tool all-in-one. It is commonly used to vacuum sawdust and shavings and to transfer small parts and pellets. It is also used to blow away water, chips and coolant. Available in three systems.
Deep Hole Vac-u-Gun is a vacuum gun that was engineered to blow chips loose and vacuum them away in one easy step. It is ideal for cleaning cavities, grooves, containers and drilled holes. It has no moving parts to wear out.
