Order an EXAIR Industrial Housekeeping System, Get a FREE Vac-U-Gun!

EXAIR manufactures a range of pneumatic barrel vacuums (drum vacuums) geared towards cleaning up the inevitable messes you’ll find in just about any industrial environment. These are “workhorse” vacuums with a long history of durability and reliability. EXAIR offers systems suitable for use with dry materials only, wet materials only, as well as one capable of handling both.

Starting on 3/1, order any of EXAIR’s Industrial Housekeeping Systems and receive a FREE Model 6492 Vac-U-Gun Kit. The kit comes complete with the powerful handheld Vac-U-Gun and a vacuum bag and is an excellent solution for small messes around the shop. The porous filter bag allows you to capture any of the vacuumed materials so that they can be easily recycled.

The Vac-U-Gun isn’t just for vacuuming, but also easily converts into a powerful blow gun by simply removing one small part and changing the orientation of the generator inside.

EXAIR’s Industrial Vacuums are designed to be used with steel drums you may already have lying around the warehouse. If you don’t have a steel drum in good condition, we sell Premium Systems that include the drum and everything you could possibly need.

If you’re looking for a system that can handle both wet and dry materials, look no further than the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac. The EasySwitch is designed to handle the toughest of industrial cleanup jobs with ease. Available with a standard or HEPA certified filter for dry material, the system quickly and easily converts from vacuum mode to dry mode. Simply lift the latch and remove the filter element when vacuuming liquids. When you’re done, just place the filter insert into the lid and you’re ready to vacuum your dry materials.

The EasySwitch converts from wet to dry materials in less than 10 seconds, with no tools, springs or clips!

Our Reversible Drum Vac allows you to fill a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. With the simple turn of a knob, the stainless steel pump quickly empties the drum as well.

The Reversible Drum Vac is a liquid vacuum purpose built to empty and fill sumps or clean up spills.

For thicker more viscous liquids (up to 1400 cP) or for when the application requires lifting the liquid from below-grade sumps, our High Lift Reversible Drum Vac is the best option. Operating in the same manner as the Standard Reversible Drum Vac, the High Lift RDV provides the extra power you need to move liquids from below grade work areas, sumps, or tanks up to 15’ deep. Both the Reversible Drum Vac and High Lift Reversible Drum Vac are offered in a variety of different systems both with and without the drum included.

Using either a standard or High Lift Reversible Drum Vac to provide the vacuum source, the Chip Trapper is capable of filling or emptying a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. It is able to pick up both the liquid coolant as well as any chips or shavings that are suspended in the coolant. The liquid is forced through a filter bag inside of the drum which contains any solid materials while allowing the coolant to filter out into the drum. Switching the knob on the Reversible Drum Vac and the directional flow valve to empty will allow the clean coolant to be pumped back out of the drum and reused.

The Chip Trapper is available in either 30, 55, or 110 gallon systems. It’ll also come with (2) 5 micron filter bags, other filter bags are also available ranging from 1 micron up to 200 micron filtration. Using a simple detergent, the filter bags can be washed out, cleaned, and reused multiple times. With no motors or impellers to clog or wear out, as well as no electricity requirement or shock hazard, the Chip Trapper comes with our standard 5-year Built to Last Warranty.

Dry materials are also a common issue generated in a variety of industrial processes. Electrically powered vacuums or shop vacs are not designed to be operated in a rugged industrial environment. Filters clog, motors wear out, and you find yourself frequently replacing them. EXAIR’s Heavy Duty Dry Vac and Chip Vac have NO moving parts to wear out, doesn’t require maintenance, and needs nothing but a source of compressed air to operate. A static resistant hose also prevents painful shocks when working with dry, dusty materials (HD Dry Vac and Premium Chip Vac Only).

The Heavy Duty Dry Vac is constructed of hardened steel designed to provide superior abrasion resistance. It’s also a bit more powerful than the Chip Vac, with a vacuum level of -60” H2O at 80 PSIG. The Chip Vac is constructed of aluminum and is the ideal solution for general duty applications where there is no risk of abrasion.

Using only compressed air, EXAIR’s Industrial Housekeeping vacuums require no electricity. Without electricity and moving parts to wear out, there is no concern for failed parts, motor failure, or personnel safety associated with the use of electric vacuums used with liquids. All systems are available to ship same day from stock and are backed by our 5 Year Built to Last Guarantee. If you’re tired of replacing electric shop vacs in your shop, EXAIR has the solution you need. Feel free to give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you select the best system for your application. Take advantage of this limited time offer and get your hands on a free Vac-U-Gun!

EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac with HEPA Filter

When I bought my first house (I was a happy condo dweller prior to the birth of my second son), I got a gift card for a home improvement store from some of the folks I worked with. Since my mother-in-law had already bought me a lawn mower, I used that gift card to purchase another staple of the Suburban Dad’s Garage: a heavy duty wet-dry shop vac. It quickly proved its usefulness as a dry vac in cleaning up after a couple of wood working and plumbing (mis)adventures, and as a wet vac following a sump pump failure & subsequent replacement. That last part was when I learned a valuable lesson about the filter cartridge that catches dirt, debris, sawdust, PVC shavings, copper shavings & solder slag: it gets ruined, and makes a HUGE mess inside the drum, if you don’t take it out before pumping the residual water from your basement sump.

I’d like to say that never happened again, but I had the old “there’s got to be a better design” thought every time I carefully positioned a large trash bag underneath so I could finagle a waterlogged & debris-laden filter out of my shop vac canister without making an even bigger mess on the floor. Now, I don’t believe this had anything to do with our R&D engineers’ development of the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac, but it IS an amazing coincidence…

Not that it’s particularly difficult to change the filter in my shop vac, but this is indeed an “Easy Switch”.

If you’re looking for a powerful, reliable, and easy to use industrial vacuum, here it is. Made to fit a standard 55 gallon open top drum, the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac Systems come in a variety of configurations to meet your specific Industrial Housekeeping needs:

  • If you have a drum, the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac kit comes with everything you need for basic operation:
    • The EasySwitch Wet-Dry unit itself
    • Drum Lid with filter hatch
    • Standard or HEPA filter & pre-filter
    • 20ft compressed air hose, pressure gauge, and shutoff valve
    • 10ft vacuum hose, crevice tool, straight wand, skimmer tool, and dust brush
  • For portability and convenience, the Deluxe system adds:
    • Drum dolly
    • Upgrade to anti-static vacuum hose and Heavy Duty Aluminum Tools
    • Spill Recovery Kit (for floor cleanup of liquids)
    • Magnetic Tool Holder
  • And if you need a drum, the Premium system adds that as well.

The standard filter is suitable for general purpose dry vacuuming, but for critical dust removal, our HEPA filter conforms to IEST-RP-CC-007 specifications for minimum 99.97% filtration at the 0.3 micron level. If your cleanup involves toxic materials, respiratory irritants…anything that people shouldn’t be breathing…you’ll definitely want the HEPA filter.

For critical dust containment, the award winning HEPA EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac System is your durable, reliable, compressed air operated solution!

And, of course, you can still remove the filter (don’t forget that part; that’s how this blog started) for high performance liquid vacuuming as well. If you’d like to find out more about the HEPA EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac – or any of our other Industrial Housekeeping Products – give me a call.

Empty and Fill Machine Sumps with the Reversible Drum Vac Systems

EXAIR has a variety of Industrial Housekeeping products for your specific applications. Let’s explore the capabilities of our Reversible Drum Vac (RDV). The RDV is a safe, maintenance free system that is purpose built to recover liquids, oils sludge and chips from machine sumps. Since it is reversible, it will also fill your sumps from a fresh drum of machining fluids. This system does not require electricity and runs on compressed air. The RDV is maintenance free as it has no moving parts.

The RDV comes in 2 models which includes a “High Lift” version of the RDV and creates a maximum lift up to 15 feet of water column. The RDV comes in 4 capacities of 5, 30, 55 and 110 gallon drums while the High Lift comes in 30, 55 and 110 gallon drums. Let’s now focus on the RDV and the options for purchase.

The first thing to consider when purchasing your RDV is the capacity which I just mentioned of 5, 30, 55 and 110. Once you decided the capacity we have 3 models to choose. The Model 6196 is your basic model and comes with the vacuum unit, stand pipe, vacuum hose and aluminum wand. It is the basics of what you need to empty and fill your machine sumps.

The model 6296 is the same as the 6196 but also includes drum dolly, ABS spill recovery kit, tool holder and all tools.

The model 6396 is includes everything as describe with the Model 6296 but also includes the drum, drum dolly, upgrade to heavy duty aluminum tools, ABS spill recovery kit, tool holder and air hose.
