Exair's compressed air operated Line Vac is a powerful in-line conveyor. The compact design and large throat diameters make them ideal for moving large volumes of material over long distances.
Applications of Line Vac:
- Hopper loading
- Fiber tensioning
- Material conveying
- Waste/trim removal
- Chip removal
- Part transfer
- Filling operations
Advantages of Line Vac:
- No moving parts
- Fits standard hose or tube
- Aluminum or stainless steel
- Eleven sizes
- High throughput capability
How does it work?
- A small amount of compressed air is injected through directed nozzles to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other, with instantaneous response.
- Material flow rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator
- Optional bracket permits easy mounting
- No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation
Selecting the right model
Line Vac is available in a wide range of sizes to fit your application. Some of the criteria used to select the proper model are:
- Diameter of parts being conveyed
- Diameter of hose or tube
- Rate (weight or volume)
- Stainless steel (Type 303 and 316) or aluminum
Sizes of Line Vac: throat diameter of 5mm through to 127mm.
Materials of Line Vac: Aluminum, Stainless Steel (Grades 303 & 316), High Temperature Stainless Steel (Grade 303), and Hardened Allow Construction
Other Designs of Line Vac: Threaded Line Vac, Heavy Duty Line Vac, & Light Duty Line Vac
Threaded Line Vac
The Threaded Line Vac converts ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. It easily attaches to plumbing pipe couplers, making it easy to build a complete system using ordinary pipe and fittings.
Heavy Duty Line Vac
The Heavy Duty Line Vac can move more material over longer vertical and horizontal lengths. They have been designed for rugged, industrial applications. The hardened alloy construction helps prevent premature wear that could occur with ordinary aluminum or stainless steel Line Vacs.
Light Duty Line Vac
The Light Duty Line Vac is the ideal way to convert small volumes of materials over a short distance. The simplified design utilizes a two-part threaded construction to provide effective conveying at a lower cost. Air consumption is reduced to a volume appropriate for moving small volumes of material at short distances. Eight sizes are available.
Exair also can manufacture special Line Vacs suited to specific application requirements. Configurations and materials can be made to facilitate your requirements. Some examples of such are:
Special Stainless Steel Line Vac with special flanges that permits direct mounting to a machine used in the manufacture of silicon wafers for the semiconductor industry.
Special flanged Line Vac made of PVDF (plastic that has high chemical resistance) to withstand a regular chloride wash down.
Special miniature Line Vac used to vacuum microscopic debris. Line Vac measures the same size as a 5cent piece.
Line Vacs can also be purchased in Kits that include a mounting bracket, filter separator, pressure regulator and coupling kit.
