I was recently contacted by a company who is a subsidiary of and does castings for a major firearms manufacturer. They have sand in large barrels that needs to be moved only 4ft, all vertical. But, they were looking to move 1100 pounds in 2 hours or less.
Our 2″ Heavy Duty Line Vac was the perfect product to recommend to him. It is made of a heat treated high alloy steel, so it can withstand the abrasive nature of the sand. It is also our highest capacity air conveyor, able to move over 500 lb/hr of rock salt over a distance of 100ft. Well above the distance requirement for this application. If the 2″ unit can move just under the required amount of material over a much longer distance, then it will have no problem moving at least the required amount of material over the much shorter distance of only 4ft.
So, it was a no-brainer that this would be the solution. It will save time and man hours by not having to move the sand manually, and will allow for increased production capacity.
