Heavy-Duty Air Powered Conveyor Resists Wear and Transports More Material

EXAIR’s new 2.5in (64mm) and 3in (76mm) Heavy-Duty Line Vacs™ are powerful in-line conveyors that transport high volumes of material through ordinary hose or tube. Designed for rugged, industrial applications, Heavy-Duty Line Vacs have a hardened alloy construction that prevents premature wear when transporting abrasive or heavy materials like shot blast, tumbling media or metal fittings. These units feature large throat diameters that make it possible to convey more material over longer vertical and horizontal lengths. The conveying rate is typically twice that of ordinary air powered conveyors.

Heavy-Duty Line Vacs eject a small amount of compressed air through directed nozzles into the throat to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other. Response is instantaneous. The material conveying rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator. An optional bracket permits easy mounting. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation.

Seven sizes up to 3in (76mm) are available that fit popular hose and tube diameters. Threaded Heavy-Duty Line Vacs are available for use with common pipe. Standard duty models made from aluminium, 303SS and 316SS are also available in nine sizes, with or without threads.  Available from Compressed Air Australia, All EXAIR Line Vacs are CE compliant and meet OSHA pressure requirements.
