Light Duty Line Vac
EXAIR's compressed air operated Line Vac connects to standard hose or tube to create a powerful in-line conveyor. The compact design features large throat diameters for maximum throughput capacity. Nine sizes in aluminium and eight sizes in stainless steel are suited to a wide variety of transfer applications.
Line Vac conveyors are ideal for moving large volumes of material over long distances. 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. The material flow rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator. An optional bracket permits easy mounting. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance-free operation.
Light Duty Line Vac™
An effective way to convey small volumes of material over short distances!
What is the Light Duty Line Vac?
EXAIR’s Light Duty Line Vac is the ideal way to convey small volumes of materials over short distances. Like our original Line Vac, the Light Duty Line Vac converts an ordinary hose or tube into a conveyor for scrap, trim and bulk materials.
Why The Light Duty Line Vac?
When lower throughputs at short distances are desired, the Light Duty Line Vac is a good choice. This 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. Conveying rates are easy to control by regulating the compressed air supply pressure.
The Light Duty Line Vac features inlet and outlet diameters common to hose and tube sizes. Eight sizes for diameters from 3/4" to 6" (19mm to 152mm) are available. Standard construction is aluminium. (For corrosion resistant stainless steel models that are suitable for high temperature and food service, please contact our factory.) No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation. (If higher conveying rates or mounting brackets are desired, see our original Line Vac models.)
Threaded Line Vac
Low cost conveyor uses ordinary pipe! Convey parts, materials, waste - with no moving parts!
EXAIR’s Threaded Line Vac Air Operated Conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. 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.
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. Construction is aluminium or stainless steel that is suited to a wide variety of conveying applications. An optional mounting bracket permits easy mounting. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation.
Models from 3/4" NPT to 2" NPT are available from stock. For other sizes, please contact the factory.
