High Lift Chip Trapper™

Filter chips and solids out of used coolant and liquids from below grade sumps or elevated tanks!
Vacuum in liquid with solids and pump out only the liquid, with 4.6 metres of lift!

What Is The High Lift Chip Trapper and How Does it Work?

The patented* High Lift Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. The High Lift Chip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris and traps all the solids in a reusable filter bag. Only the liquid pumps back out. It is ideal for use on pits, wells, below grade sumps, tanks and storage containers of contaminated liquids.

EXAIR’s compressed air operated High Lift Chip Trapper System attaches quickly to the included 30, 55 or 110-gallon drum lid. Its high powered vacuum is able to lift liquids up to 15 feet or pump liquids from as far as 20 feet and fill a 55-gallon drum in less than 85 seconds. With the simple turn of a knob, the same stainless steel pump quickly empties the drum. The High Lift Chip Trapper has the extra power you need to move liquids from below grade work areas, sumps or tanks.

Wells, pits, below grade or elevated tanks, can accumulate debris. This debris can cause problems when the liquid is transferred into a machine or process. Waste oil for heating or recycled lubricants which are suitable for dirtier jobs can be used without worry of solids damaging equipment. The heavy-duty power of the High Lift Chip Trapper is capable of moving high viscosity liquids up to 1400 centipoise.

Like all of EXAIR’s industrial vacuums, the High Lift Chip Trapper uses no electricity and has no moving parts which assure maintenance-free operation. It is designed for continuous and heavy duty applications where electric vacuums fail due to motor wear or clogged impellers. This vacuum efficiently and safely uses the compressed air in your facility. An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents overfilling.

How the High Lift Chip Trapper Works

The vacuum hose (1) is attached to the barbed connection of the High Lift Chip Trapper (2). The directional flow control valve on top of the drum (3) and knob on the pump (4) are set to the “fill” position.

The air supply valve is opened to permit compressed air at 80-100 PSIG (5.5 – 6.9 BAR) to flow through the pump which pulls the liquid through the hose, then into the reusable filter bag (5).

When all liquid is in the drum, the air supply is turned off. The filtered liquid can then be pumped out by setting the directional flow control valve on top of the drum and the knob on the pump to the “empty” position. Once the air supply valve is opened, the air pushes the liquid back through the hose while all solids remain in the reusable filter bag.

Built To Last

The stainless steel pump has no motors or impellers to clog or wear out and there is no electricity or shock hazard! Safe operation is assured with a built-in pressure/vacuum relief and an automatic safety shutoff valve that prevents spills or overfilling.

Warning :  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.

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.
