Industrial Housekeeping Promo: Free Vac-U-Gun

Are you in need of a new vacuum system or upgrade your new old system? Well now’s the time to do it! Starting March 1st, 2021 and running through May 31st, 2021, we are offering a free Vac-U-Gun system with any order of one of our Industrial Housekeeping Vacuum Systems. Our Vac-U-Gun system is a versatile tool that can help you clean up surfaces and transfer the material from point A to point B. The Vac-U-Gun can also be used as a powerful blow gun simply by unscrewing the generator and flipping it around. Best of all these units have no moving parts meaning they will run almost indefinitely and are maintenance free.

Vac-U-Gun System

Our industrial housekeeping products are designed to either handle dry solids or liquid.

If you need to handle solid material our Chip Vac system is the perfect choice. The system can handle both dry and damp material and transfer it into one of our standard open top steel drum (or use one of your own drums). If you are working with a heavier or abrasive material then look no further then the Heavy Duty Dry Vac which provides superior performance and abrasion resistance for use with materials as garnet, ground glass, blasting and tumbling media.

For your dustier applications we offer the Heavy Duty HEPA Vac system, which uses the same vacuum generator as the Heavy Duty Dry Vac but provides a higher level of filtration. The HEPA rated filter meets the requirements of 99.97% filtration at the 0.3 micron level.

If liquids are what you need the Reversible Drum Vac system which can pump 55 gals in 90 secs is an good choice. The Reversible Drum Vac also comes in a High Lift version which can be used to pump liquids that have a much thicker viscosity and move liquids up to 15’ deep. When it comes filtering out solids from your liquid we also have the High Lift Chip Trapper and the Chip Trapper system. The Chip Trapper systems allow you to filter out solids suspended in the liquid; this is perfect for filtering out chips from your coolant tanks for machining.

If you need to clean up both liquids and solids, choose our new EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac system. The EasySwitch allows you to easily switch the unit from being able to vacuum up solids to being able to suck up liquids (hence the name). All you have to do is remove the HEPA filter from the latch on the lid. There are no tools involved, no springs or cumbersome closures. Switch from liquids to dry materials in less than 15 seconds.

EXAIR has a new product: The EasySwitch™ Wet-Dry Vac

We have joined our wet vacuum with our dry vacuum to make the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac System.  This new addition to our Industrial Housekeeping Products allows your customers to replace their electric wet-dry vacuums that fail prematurely, have potential safety issues, and are very loud.  Below, I will share the features and benefits of the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac System as expected from a leader in this industry.  You can watch a video HERE.

A wet-dry vacuum is a contained system that can vacuum up liquid or dirt.  The specific design that separates the liquid application from the dry application is a filter element.  The filter will stop the dirt and debris from re-entering the surrounding air during vacuuming.  The EXAIR EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac uses this same function for dry materials.  But we offer two different types of filters; a standard filter and a HEPA filter.  The standard filter is a 3-micron pleated element with a large surface area for long life.  The HEPA filter is a 0.3-micron pleated element for finer filtration.  But what is unique about our design is the patent pending lid to easily remove or replace the filter elements.  It makes an easy transition to go from liquid to dry materials and vice versa.   The lid is designed to fit on a common 55 gallon open-top drum.  They are ideal for any applications that is wet, dry, light or heavy.

EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac Mode Change Instructions

Like with our other Industrial Housekeeping Products, the EasySwitch does not have any motors to wear or electricity to run which makes it safe for liquid applications.  It only needs filtered compressed air.  They are maintenance free, and the sound level is quiet, only 79 dBA.  The applications include coolant, chips, floor cleanup, drains, shavings, sawdust, absorbents, and mold and allergen removal.  For liquid applications, it has a spill free – auto safety shutoff.  This industrial all-purpose pneumatic vacuum can move 36 GPM (136 LPM) of water, 68 Lbs./min (31 Kg/min) of plastic media, and 54 lbs./min (24 Kg/min) of steel shot at 80 PSIG (5.5 bar).  The specifications at 80 PSIG (5.5 bar) for the EasySwitch is that it will only use 53 SCFM (1,500 SLPM) of compressed air to generate -168” H2O (-314 mmHg) of vacuum and 90 CFM (2,548 LPM) of vacuum flow.

EXAIR offers three types of systems with the standard filter or the HEPA filter.  We have the basic system, the Deluxe system, and the Premium system.  The basic system will come with the selected filter, 10-foot (3m) vacuum hose, 20-foot (6.1m) compressed air hose, plastic tools, shutoff valve and gage.  The HEPA filter models will include a Pre-filter to help protect the HEPA media from premature clogging.  The Deluxe system will include the items in the basic system with an upgraded antistatic vacuum hose, heavy-duty tools, a spill recovery kit, a tool holder, and a drum dolly.  The Premium system will include the items in the Deluxe system and it will include a 55 Gallon drum.  A quick guide is below.EXAIR continues to add new products to expand solutions for our customers.  If you have an application where you need an all-around vacuum system that is long lasting, reliable, and quiet; the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac is that product for you.  If you need more information, EXAIR has Application Engineers that can help you. Also take advantage of our Industrial Housekeeping Promotion currently running, and receive a free Vac-U-Gun with the purchase of our EasySwitch or any other industrial Vacuum.

Wet-Dry Vacuum Converts Without Tools in 15 Seconds or Less!

In a recent video, I showcased our newest Industrial Housekeeping product, the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac. Throughout my years in metalworking as well as homeownership, I have honestly never used a wet-dry vacuum that is this easy to change operating modes from wet to dry or vice versa. So just how easy is it?

EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac Mode Change Instructions

When writing out instructions on how to do this it takes a total of five steps for either direction. These five steps can easily be completed in less than 15 seconds and best of all, it is tool-free.

When changing over other wet/dry vacuums, whether it is a traditional electric vacuum like you may have at home or another pneumatic industrial vacuum on the market, the switchover process is cumbersome. There are typically fasteners or retainers that are necessary to hold the filters in place, filters can be poor quality and get damaged easily.  Small parts needed to hold filters in place like springs or retainer nuts can easily be lost, hard to manipulate and take additional time changing from liquid to dry modes or vice-versa. With the EasySwitch, the only fastener is a rubber latch that is attached to the filter hatch cover. This means operators can’t lose parts because they are all attached to the EasySwitch Lid. To convert from a dry vacuum to a wet vacuum the steps are simple.

  1. Turn off the compressed air and unlatch the rubber handle. This makes it possible to complete step two.
  2. Lift the filter hatch lid and let it rest on the hinge stop. This is all designed to be robust enough to easily support the weight of the EasySwitch unit as well as the air hose attached to it.
  3. Lift the filter, whether it is the HEPA rated filter or the standard filter, up and out of the lid.
  4. Close the filter hatch lid onto the edge gasket that stays firmly in place.
  5.  Latch the rubber handle/latch back into place and start processing liquid as needed.

That’s it, it takes less than 15 seconds in the video below (see it at 1:15) and I am pretty sure a speedcuber or cup stacker could do it even faster. Don’t believe me, want to test it out for yourself, we honor a 30-day guarantee on stock products. Get the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac in your facility and put it through your own rigorous testing. If it doesn’t perform to your liking, let us know and we will arrange for sending it back. Converting the vacuum from dry to wet isn’t the only thing that is fast, we also ship same day on orders for stock products (hint: all EasySwitch vacuums are stock product) received by 3 PM ET that are shipping within the US. (2 PM ET for orders billing and shipping to Canada.)
