Threaded Line Vac™

Low cost conveyor uses ordinary pipe! Ideal for long distance conveying!

What is The Threaded Line Vac?

A fast, low cost way to convey:

  • Plastic pellets
  • Scrap trim
  • Textiles
  • Bulk solids
  • Chips
  • Paper
  • Small parts
  • Shavings
  • Sawdust

EXAIR’s Threaded Line Vac Air Operated Conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. The Threaded Line Vac attaches easily to plumbing pipe couplers, making it easy to build a complete system using ordinary pipe and fittings available from any home centre, hardware store or plumbers supply. Performance is the same as our standard Line Vac.

Threaded Line Vac Conveyors are ideal for conveying large volumes of material over long distances. They eject a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end with high output flows on the other. Response is instantaneous. Regulating the compressed air pressure provides infinite control of the conveying rate. Models from 3/8 NPT to 3 NPT are available in aluminium and stainless steel, which are suited to a wide variety of conveying applications. An optional mounting bracket permits easy mounting. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation.

How Threaded Line Vac Works

Compressed air 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 and accelerates it through the unit (5) for conveying over long vertical or horizontal distances.

Warning : Do not use EXAIR Line Vacs with any material that can become an explosive mixture.

Line Vac Drum Cover

EXAIR’s fine mesh non-woven Drum Cover is built to fit over the top of 205 or 60 litre drums. The breathable material allows the air from a Line Vac air operated conveyor to circulate, whether moving material in or out of the drum. The cover prevents contamination of your material and keeps material from escaping the drum, which keeps your work environment cleaner and safer.

Since it is fabricated to fit 205 or 60 litre drums, it is the simplest of solutions when needing a containment vessel for your transferred scrap, trim, waste, parts, chips or pellets.

It is suitable for Line Vac conveyance hoses from ¾” (19mm) through 3.4” (86.4mm) outside diameters and comes complete with hose clamps and a durable spring buckle strap for quick and easy installation.

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.
