When selecting the proper EXAIR vacuum system for an application, several details are considered by our Application Engineers. For example:
Does the vacuum need to vacuum liquids or solids?
If the need is to vacuum solid material, what is the approximate size of the material pieces?
How quickly does the material need to be vacuumed?
What is the compressed air supply available?
Is dust a major concern?
The last question becomes more relevant with finer material, especially dust or small dirt particles. Many applications have a need for dust control and need a vacuum system capable of maintaining low dust levels.
The EXAIR Heavy Duty HEPA Vac was designed for this exact purpose. With a HEPA filter that is tested in strict accordance to IEST-RP-CC-007 standards to provide a minimum of 99.97% filtration at the 0.3 micron level, the Heavy Duty HEPA Vac can provide an effective and highly efficient vacuuming method using only compressed air.
For example, in the fine dust collection hopper shown above, the hopper undergoes regular cleaning and maintenance which includes a thorough cleaning to remove any fine dust remaining in the hopper. This powder has a tendency to permeate the filtration used in most vacuums, and electrically powered units have continuously failed.
The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac is a perfect fit for this application need as it can provide adequate filtration, and it has no moving parts to wear out.
If you have a dusty or difficult vacuum application in need of a sustainable vacuum system, contact an EXAIR Application Engineer to discuss the Heavy Duty HEPA Vac.
