The HEPA Filter Protector

With our Heavy Duty HEPA Vac, it is very capable of capturing particles that are very small. You do not have to worry about re-entraining the dirt that you vacuumed back into the air. The filtration efficiency of the HEPA filter is 99.97% at 0.3 micron. Because it is so efficient, we place a prefilter on the outside of the element. This helps to capture the larger particles so that they do not prematurely plug the HEPA media. In extreme conditions with large amounts of debris, we do have another option. It is the model 901373 filter protector. It is a bag that will go on the outside of the prefilter and the HEPA filter. With a large influx of contamination, the filter protector will create a matrix from the contamination to create a cake. This cake, as it builds, will start to capture smaller particles and become more efficient. It is similar to a natural dam after a big rain. The large boulders and logs collect into a section, and then the smaller rocks and branches will collect behind it.

Under normal conditions, the standard HEPA filter with prefilter will last you for a while before replacing. It is dependent on the amount of dirt that is being collected. But, in those extreme conditions, you do not want to change the HEPA filter every week. This would be too expensive. That is why EXAIR found a cost-effective option to help, the filter protector. The model 901373 filter protector can be changed in a matter of minutes and the cost is less than 2% of the HEPA filter. Just like disposable shoe covers, they are inexpensive and they protect your expensive shoes. If you require any more information on our Heavy Duty HEPA Vac or the accessories, you can contact one of our helpful Application Engineers at EXAIR.

With the new year comes new products

So, we are less than a week into the new year and here at EXAIR we are already releasing new products. That’s right folks, we have released the first product of the year. This product is an accessory for an existing product line. I present to you the EXAIR Chip Shield.

The Chip Shield can be purchased already installed on most of our Safety Air Guns and can also be retrofitted to existing EXAIR Safety Air Guns that you are already using.  The Chip Shield helps to protect your operator from harmful debris blowing back at them from the part that’s being blown off.  The shield is a polycarbonate construction and when used with an extension can be positioned at any point along the extension to meet individual application needs.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact an application engineer for help outfitting your Safety Air Gun with a Chip Shield.

EXAIR 110 Gallon Chip Trapper Wins Another Award!

Environmental Protection has announced the EXAIR 110 Gallon Chip Trapper as a New Product of the Year winner in the Waste category.  This is the THIRD award for the Chip Trapper.  The Chip Trapper was also a Golden Mousetrap Best New Products Awards Finalist, along with Plant Engineering’s Product of the Year.

The Chip Trapper is used to recover liquids and filter out unwanted chips, swarf, shavings, and debris.  You can then pump the filtered liquid back into your machine for further use or into a waste container through the use of the reversible valves. This enables you to use your coolants and liquids longer by keeping them cleaner, and do your part to keep things greener.

Due to the success of the 55 gallon Chip Trapper, EXAIR has produced a 30 gallon and 110 gallon version to complete a whole family of Chip Trapper products. If you would like to read more about the Chip Trapper or any of the other EXAIR products feel free to follow the links or contact us.
