Heavy Duty Dry Vac


What Is The Heavy Duty Dry Vac?

EXAIR's new Heavy Duty Dry Vac attaches to an ordinary 44 gallon (205 liter) open-top drum to turn it into a powerful, industrial duty vacuum cleaner. The Heavy Duty Dry Vac has been engineered to vacuum more dry materials in less time with less wear.

Designed for tough industrial environments, the hardened alloy construction resists premature wear while the 0.1 micron filter bag traps dust to keep the surrounding air clean. The quiet operation makes it suitable for a wide variety of applications including the clean up of abrasive materials like steel shot, garnet, metal chips, and sand while also useful for general purpose applications like vacuuming floors, machines, work stations, industrial machinery and equipment.

Why The Heavy Duty Dry Vac?

Electrically operated vacuums have motors and impellers that clog and wear out quickly. There ís also a potential shock hazard when electric vacs are used in standing liquids. The Heavy Duty Dry Vac is compressed air powered which eliminates the shock hazard. It has no moving parts to wear out or break, to assure long life. It is quiet with a sound level that is half that of electric vacs. A static resistant hose prevents painful shocks when vacuuming dry, dusty materials.

How the Heavy Duty Dry Vac Works

Compressed air, normally 80-100 PSIG (5.5 - 6.9 BAR), flows through the inlet (1) into an annular plenum chamber (2). It is then injected into the throat through directed nozzles (3). These jets of air create a vacuum at the intake (4) which draws material in, accelerates it through the unit (5), and directs it to the bottom of the drum. The airflow exhausts through the port in the drum lid. Airborne particles are trapped by the 0.1 micron filter bag (6). The Heavy Duty Dry Vac unit (5) and vacuum tools (7) have a heavy duty construction to resist wear.

Warning: Do not use with combustible dust.
