Industrial Housekeeping Overview: The Vac-u-Guns

Manufacturing product can be a very dirty process that can generate large amounts of biproduct, trash, and loose material that is lying around or has been spilled. Especially when it comes to spilled material you might not want get rid of the material because it is still good. Well, EXAIR has the solution for you! Introducing the Vac-U-Gun systems! The Vac-U-Gun system is just as it sounds; a hand-held vacuum cleaner that can be turned on and off by simply pulling back the trigger. This system can allow one to easily clean up messes such as metal chips, plastic pellets, nuts, bolts, paper scraps, and much more. Altogether this gives you and easy way to keep your work space clean. Best of all the Vac-U-Gun isn’t just a vacuum system it can also work as a blower to blow air or transfer material.

EXAIR’s Vac-U-Gun System

The Vac-U-Gun system works off of the same principle of Entrainment as EXAIR’s Air Amplifiers and Line Vacs which can produce a strong suction for moving material. The removable generator located in the back of the Vac-U-Gun can be easily taken out and reoriented in order to create a strong blowing force that can be used for either blowing surfaces off or transferring material.

Vac-U-Gun Kits

The Vac-U-Gun can be purchased in three different kits to help get you started:

6192 – Collection System: Vac-U-gun, reusable bag, brush, crevice tool, skimmer tool, (2) extension wands

6292 – Transfer System: Vac-U-gun, 10’ Vacuum hose, brush, crevice tool, skimmer tool, (2) extension wands

6392 – All Purpose System: Vac-U-gun, 10’ Vacuum hose, reusable bag, brush, crevice tool, skimmer tool, (2) extension wands

If you have a blind hole that you just can’t seem to be able to clean out, then look no farther than the Deep Hole Vac-U-Gun. The Deep Hole Vac-U-Gun has all the same features as the Vac-U-Gun but adds a quick blast of air to dislodge anything in the holes so it can be vacuumed up.

The EXAIR Vac-u-Gun: The Ultimate Utility Player

Baseball season was supposed to be underway, and with all the excitement that comes from being a lifelong fan, this is one of my favorite times of the year. As a kid, I idolized the Big Red Machine – the starting lineup of my hometown Cincinnati Reds in the mid-1970’s – and none of them more than Pete Rose…unless it was Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, Joe Morgan, Dave Concepcion, Ken Griffey, Cesar Geronimo, or George Foster.

But Pete, man…they called him Charlie Hustle, and he earned the nickname every time he took the field. He RAN to first base when he got WALKED. And Pete was the consummate utility player too.  He won Golden Glove awards, and set records for career fielding percentages in both right & left field, was Rookie of the Year (1963) second baseman, spent the Big Red Machine years at third base, and still managed to play most of his career games at first base.  Oh, and he held his own in the batter’s box too.

Now, many EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air Products have a variety of uses, but the Vac-u-Gun is the one that we can call a true utility player:

  • Looking for a handy, ergonomic, portable vacuum?  Model 6192 Vac-u-Gun Collection System comes with a reusable bag with a shoulder strap, extension wands & tools to make for quick, on the spot cleanup anywhere in your shop.
  • Already have a receptacle to put what you’re vacuuming up into?  Model 6292 Vac-u-Gun Transfer System has a 10ft hose instead of the bag that you can run to your receptacle.  The hose, in fact, can be fitted to either end of the Vac-u-Gun, which works in both directions (more on that in a minute.)
  • Have a need for both?  No problem – the Model 6392 Vac-u-Gun All Purpose System comes with both the bag and the hose.
  • Need a blow gun too?  Just reverse the direction of the Vac-u-Gun’s Generator.  The 1-1/4″ diameter of the Vac-u-Gun means you’ll cover more space, more quickly, than ordinary air guns.
  • Want to quickly remove chips and contaminants from grooves, containers, or blind holes?  The Deep Hole Vac-u-Gun is fitted with a suction tube and small blow tube that directs a tight blast of air into the void, dislodging debris, so the Vac-u-Gun can suction it away.
  • What about transferring bulk materials?  With the 10ft hose that comes with the Transfer & All Purpose Systems, you can move material either way (remember the reversible Generator?) to or from any location the hose will reach to.
Regardless of your portable vacuum needs, EXAIR has a Vac-u-Gun System for you.

Right now, we’ll GIVE you a Vac-u-Gun with the purchase of any qualifying Industrial Vaccum, through April 30, 2020.  Or, if you just want the Vac-u-Gun System, they’re priced for most any budget.  If you’d like to find out if the Vac-u-Gun is right for your application, give me a call.
