EXAIR’s new patented High Lift Chip Trapper™ offers a fast and easy way to clean coolant sumps, waste oil pits or wells. High Lift Chip Trapper removes the solids such as chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids with up to 4.6m (15ft) of lift or 6.1m (20ft) of horizontal vacuum. Extend the life of coolants and eliminate the worry of waste oil solids damaging equipment.
Metal chips in a machine sump can block the intake of the coolant pump which reduces the coolant flow and causes heat-related damage to the expensive parts and tooling. Regular cleaning of the sump with a High Lift Chip Trapper eliminates this problem, the lost production and downtime.
The compressed air powered High Lift Chip Trapper vacuums the dirty liquid into the included drum, trapping all the solids in a reusable filter bag. With a turn of the flow valve, clean liquid pumps back out. There are no motors or impellers to clog or wear out. Safe operation is assured with built-in pressure / vacuum relief and an automatic safety shutoff to prevent spills or overfilling.
Available from Compressed Air Australia, the Model 6190 High Lift Chip Trapper is available in 30gal, 55gal and 110gal capacities. Systems include the stainless steel two-way pump, directional flow valve, drum, lever lock drum lid, shutoff valve, 6.1m (20ft) vacuum hose, 6.1m (20ft) compressed air hose, chip wand, two filter bags and a drum dolly. High Lift Chip Trappers and all EXAIR industrial vacuums are CE-compliant.
