I’ve shown just how fast you can change the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac from wet mode to dry mode in a previous video blog here. In case that isn’t what concerns you about the vacuum you or your team use in your facility then let’s outline some additional benefits on just what this vacuum is capable of.
This patented vacuum generates 94 SCFM of vacuum flow and pulls 210 inches of water column when powered at 100 psig inlet pressure. This vacuum flow and force enables cleanup of wet or dry materials. From cleaning out sub-grade sumps to vacuuming up floor dry from spill containment. The ability to switch from wet to dry mode in the matter of 10 seconds or less means less downtime or even more important, less time for a spill to creep larger.
Combine the ease of use with no need for electricity, because it is powered by compressed air, and you have a safe, wet environment cleanup solution. This enables operators to maintain compliance with OSHA directive 29 CFR 1910.22(a), safe surface conditions by enabling them to easily clean up wet or dry spills or collection of debris on walking surfaces.
If material segregation for recycling purposes is needed, the EasySwitch can even be easily moved from one drum to another by lifting the lid from one 55 gallon drum to a fresh drum ready to go. This can help maximize recyclable solids profits should your facility machine multiple metals. Machine cleanouts for changeovers can achieved quickly thanks to the assortment of cast aluminum crevice tools to fit into all nooks and crannies inside of a machine. Even the magnetic tool holder is easily transferred to new drums should the need arise.

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?
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.
Turn off the compressed air and unlatch the rubber handle. This makes it possible to complete step two.
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.
Lift the filter, whether it is the HEPA rated filter or the standard filter, up and out of the lid.
Close the filter hatch lid onto the edge gasket that stays firmly in place.
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.

EXAIR introduced our first Wet/Dry Vacuum in August. We have simplified the process of converting a vacuum from wet to dry (and dry to wet) materials. This can now be easily switched within 15 seconds due to its patent pending engineering and design. The video below is a quick rundown of just how easy it is to contain any industrial mess with the new compressed air powered vacuum from EXAIR.
