Heavy Duty Dry Vac™

Vacuum more material in less time!
Industrial duty vacuum has a rugged construction to resist wear!

What Is The Heavy Duty Dry Vac?

EXAIR’s Heavy Duty Dry Vac attaches to an ordinary 205-litre (44-gallon) 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 increased power handles difficult jobs and harsh conditions. 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.

Electrically operated vacuums have motors and impellers that clog and wear out quickly. There’s also a potential shock hazard when electric vacs are used in standing liquids. The Heavy Duty Dry Vac is a 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.

The Heavy Duty Dry Vac’s lever lock drum lid fits any open top 205-liter (44-gallon) drum. Moving it from one drum to another can be done quickly, making it easy to keep different materials separate for recycling. All materials are vacuumed directly into the drum, eliminating the heavy lifting that is common with electrically powered vacuums. The Heavy Duty Dry Vac can be used with an open head steel, fibre or plastic drum that is in good condition (ANSI Standard #MH2-2004). To prevent material contamination, a poly drum liner can be inserted into the drum.

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 filter bag (6). The Heavy Duty Dry Vac unit (5) and vacuum tools (7) are built to withstand rugged use.

Warning: Do not use with combustible dust.

The Heavy Duty Dry Vac vacuums up abrasive garnet from the work surface surrounding a vibratory bowl used to deburr parts.

Sand that covers the floor around a sandblaster is quickly vacuumed into the drum using the rugged floor tool.

A Heavy Duty Dry Vac provides maximum capacity clean-up for a large dusty walnut shell blasting application.

The Heavy Duty Dry Vac cleans up a spill of steel shot.

Accessories

Filters, Regulators, Valves & More

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.
