Well, it’s almost everyone’s favorite time of the year, swimsuit season!!!. I said ALMOST everyone. Which means that crash diets and “lighter” fare choices are in full swing. (I know I need to be incorporating these myself).
Sticking with this theme, I thought I would write this week’s blog on our Light Duty Line Vac. These units provide an alternative solution for conveying smaller volumes of material over a short distance.
Available in eight common sizes, ¾” up to 6”, in aluminum construction, these units use less compressed air than our other Line Vac products. The Light Duty Line Vac also has no moving parts and requires no electricity to operate, making them virtually maintenance free!
Air consumption is minimal, ranging from our smallest unit consuming 7.30 SCFM @ 80 PSI, up to our largest unit consuming 80.20 SCFM @ 80 PSI. You can also control the conveying rate by regulating your compressed air supply pressure.
For even more control, you could add one of our Electronic Flow Control (EFC) which uses timing control and a photoelectric sensor to turn off your compressed air when there is no media/part present.

Now that the holidays are over and we have come down from our sugar highs, it’s time to get serious about eating right and shedding those extra pounds gained. I have never been good about dieting because I love to eat and hate to exercise. This year I have extra resolve, the doctor said that if I do not get my sugar levels in check I will need to go on medication. I am currently on a carb restricted diet to keep my levels in check.
When was the last time you did an audit of your compressed air system? Is it time to put your air usage on a diet? It is much simpler than you may think to restrict compressed air consumption which helps keep your energy levels in check. It can be as easy as retrofitting open tube or pipe with an engineered air nozzle or replacing a pipe with a series of drilled holes along its length with a Super Air Knife. Sometimes it is hard to convince operators that they do not need open air lines at system pressures to get the job done. The problem is more than likely they have not been offered an effective alternative. Their objective is to do their job. If you can offer them something that uses less compressed air and still gets the job done, they will most assuredly embrace it.
EXAIR’s core business is the conservation of compressed air. The unique design of their products draws in surrounding ambient air providing a greater volume of air on the target than the volume of compressed air used. Amplification can be a much as 40 times more! If you are ready to go on an “compressed air diet” and improve your energy consumption’s overall health, call 1-800-903-9247 and ask to speak with one of our application engineers.
