EXAIR, has the right industrial vacuum. We have multiple options for you, based upon your facility needs. If dust, dirt, debris, chips, or flakes are a by product of you making your product, you need to keep reading…
Let’s face it, industrial facilities get dirty. Dust, flakes, chips, can get everywhere if not properly managed. Once these dry materials become airborne or on the floor, a clean house can be difficult to maintain, especially if you do not have, or are not using the right equipment.
There is a lot of “wrong” equipment on the market. Let me ask you a simple question. If your facility has a compressed air system, why would you choose to use any equipment that does not optimize the air that you have, increase safety levels, reduce noise, and never break down? I hear story after story of broken down electric vacuums. Some of these, especially in today’s world, take weeks or months to get parts to repair. Oh, wait – to repair?, yeah because the motors get clogged with the same dirt you are trying to clean out of your facility, the motor clogs and performs poorly or simply burns out all together. Filters fail, belts break – sometimes we just have to face the fact that we made a bad decision and went with that undependable electric option.
Here are a few important features that each product has in common:
- 80-100 PSIG is needed for optimal performance with each system
- No Electricity needed
- No moving parts to break
- No motor to repair
- 1.5″ vacuum hose (standard is 10 ft long)
- Inter changeable tools form one system to another
- Static resistant hose available
- Designed to fit on standard 55 gallon drums (5, 30, and 110 gallon drum options are available on certain models).
- All have filters for dust / debris – most have options for the level of filtration required.
- Quieter than comparable electric vacuums.
The Chip Vac vacuums directly into an open drum. This is primarily a dry vacuum. It is designed to pick up chips from fixtures, floors, lathes, saws, mills, and many other industrial equipment. When I say mostly dry, this will pick up wet chips – but is not the best solution for puddles of liquid (we have other options for this). Designed to run at 80 PSIG. Comes in 5 gallon, 30 gallon, 55 gallon and 110 gallon options.
Whatever your dry vac needs are, one of these options will be perfect for you. Don’t forget we have several wet options as well, but that is for another blog. Please give myself, or any of the application engineers a call today to discuss your Industrial Housekeeping needs.
