EasySwitch™ Wet-Dry Vac

Make the seamless transition from a dry material vacuum to liquids with ease!

What Is The EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac?

EXAIR’s patent pending EasySwitch vacuum simplifies the filter change process when switching from vacuuming a dry material to a liquid or vice versa. Utilising minimal compressed air, the EasySwitch is a powerful pneumatic vacuum that is ideal for any application – wet, dry, light and heavy. It rests upon any 205-litre (44-gallon) drum.

The EasySwitch is designed to handle the toughest of industrial clean-up jobs with ease. EXAIR’s EasySwitch vacuum uses a standard or HEPA certified filter when vacuuming dry material. The fast and simple conversion to vacuuming liquids is done by releasing one latch and simply removing the filter element. Using only compressed air, the EasySwitch vacuum creates a powerful vacuum without the need for electricity. Because the vacuum generator has no moving parts and uses no electricity, there is little concern for failed parts, motor failure or personnel safety associated with using electric vacuums for liquids.

The EasySwitch vacuum is an all-purpose pneumatic vacuum with the capability of handling any job – dry or wet. Switching between vacuuming liquids or solids is as easy as removing the pleated filter when vacuuming liquids and reinstalling directly into the open filter hatch when working with dry material. Like most of EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air® products, this compressed air-driven vacuum functions at a quiet 79 decibels without purchasing additional noise muffling accessories. This quiet operation feature protects operator hearing. In addition, the EasySwitch vacuum generally uses less compressed air to produce better or similar performance than other pneumatic competition. The EasySwitch vacuum also features accessory options of both a standard and anti-static vacuum hose, drum dolly for convenient movement, premium metal attachments and tool holder. Providing you with an effective and adaptable method of clean-up, the EasySwitch vacuum is your all-encompassing solution to industrial housekeeping.

How The EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac Works

The EasySwitch vacuum utilises a filter hatch, secured by one simple latch, for easy installation and replacement of filters. It does not require any additional springs, clips or closures. A rubber handle (1) is connected to the filter latch (2). Unlatching the handle from the drum lid will allow the hatch to be raised. When the hatch is raised, the filter (3) can be installed or uninstalled easily. The filter simply lifts out of the filter hatch hole and can be reinstalled by placing the filter on top of edge gasket (4) on the filter hatch hole. For operation, close the hatch and secure the rubber handle (1). When the filter is installed, the vacuum will work with dry media and, when it is uninstalled, it will work with liquids. When the drum is filled with liquid, the vacuum is automatically turned off by a float shutoff.

Warning : In wet mode, do not use with any material with a low flash point or with flammable liquids such as fuel oil, alcohol, mineral spirits, gasoline or kerosene. In dry mode, do not use with combustible dust.

With proper filtration of dirt, moisture and oil from the compressed air supply, EXAIR compressed air products will operate for years with no maintenance required. Use a 5 micron or smaller filter separator on the compressed air supply. To prevent problems associated with oil, use a 0.03 micron or smaller oil removal filter on the compressed air supply. Pressure regulators permit easy selection of the operating pressure, providing infinite control of flow, force and air consumption.
