I recently had the pleasure of talking with a caller from a consulting firm that specializes in improved ergonomics. They work with clients on everything from preventing carpal tunnel syndrome through the use of things like gel-filled mouse pads for office personnel, to preventing injuries in the workplace due to repetitive strain, heavy lifting, and other physically demanding tasks. They called about an operation where workers used buckets to move 150 pounds of dense pellets from a large container into a smaller vessel for weight load testing. After the test, they move the pellets back into the container, where they stay until the next test is to be run. Then they do it again.
This, of course, was a great fit for a 2″ Heavy Duty Line Vac and a 10ft length of Conveyance Hose. They simply move the suction & discharge hoses from, and to, the storage container & test vessel. Risk of injury is greatly reduced, as the whole Line Vac conveyance system is less than half the weight of one bucket of the material.
This is just the latest success story in the long history of EXAIR Air Operated Conveyors. They’re on the shelf in a range of sizes and materials of construction to meet most any need. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, though, call me and we can discuss your needs.
