2" Heavy Duty Line Vac Kit Circulates Sand and Rock Material

A manufacturer of vibratory separators built a small scale machine for display purposes and needed to move small gravel and sand at a rate of about 5 pounds per minute up a vertical height of 6 feet. This was to recirculate the material that they were showcasing.



 The solution was to use Model 152200 2" (51mm) Heavy Duty Line Vac Kit to pick up the material from the bottom of the collection bin and convey it back to the hopper on the top of the machine.

360 Degree Static Eliminator is CE, UL and RoHS Certified


EXAIR's new Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe provides a uniform 360 degree ionized air  stream that clamps around a continuously moving part to eliminate static electricity and contaminants. It is ideal for removing dust, particulates and personnel shocks on pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose, wire and more. This engineered product has undergone independent laboratory tests to certify it meets the rigorous safety, health and environmental standards of the USA, European Union and Canada that are required to attain the CE and UL marks. It is also RoHS compliant. New design features include a metal armored high voltage cable to protect against abrasion and cuts, a replaceable emitter point, integrated ground connection and electromagnetic shielding.

The Super Ion Air Wipe uses a small amount of compressed air to entrain high volumes of room air. Two shockless ionizing points powered by a UL Component Recognized 5kV power supply fills the air stream with static eliminating ions. That airflow attaches itself to the surface of the material running through the air wipe and neutralizes the charge. 
         The Super Ion Air Wipe, which compliments EXAIR’s complete line of Gen4 Static Eliminators, has an aluminum construction that is lightweight and easy to mount using the tapped holes provided. Two sizes include a 2" (51mm) diameter and a 4" (102mm). There are no moving parts to wear out. Visit EXAIR.com to see the entire Gen4 Static Eliminator product line and 1/2" through 11" Super Air Wipes for applications without static.

Chip Trapper - Filter the chips out of your used coolant and cutting oils!

The Exair Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. The Chip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris and traps all the solids in a reusable filter bag. Only the liquid pumps back out. It is ideal for use on machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers of contaminated liquids.

The Chip Trapper uses EXAIR’s compressed air powered Reversible Drum Vac (included) that can fill or empty a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. Simply set the Reversible Drum Vac pump and directional flow control valve on top of the drum to “fill” for it to quickly vacuum the liquid with solids. Once the sump, pit or tank is empty, set the pump and directional valve to “empty” for it to pump out clean coolant/liquid. All the chips and other solids are trapped inside the reusable filter bag of the Chip Trapper.

Chips can accumulate in the sump, restricting coolant flow.
The Chip Trapper pumps the coolant back into the sump – free of chips and debris.
Chip Trapper filters out solids from partswasher fluids.

EXAIR's Drum Cover Keeps Bulk Material Contained and Free of Contaminants


EXAIR’s new fine mesh non-woven drum cover is designed for use on 55 or 30 gallon drums. The breathable material allows the air from an EXAIR Line Vac, air operated conveyor, to circulate whether moving material in or out of a drum. The drum cover prevents contamination of your material and keeps material contained in the drum for a cleaner and safer work environment. Since it is fabricated to fit 55 or 30 gallon 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 conveyance hoses from ¾ inch (19.1mm) up through a 3.4 inches (86.4mm) outside diameter.
Line Vac conveyors are the low-cost way to transport complex shapes, bulk solids and waste - with no moving parts or electricity.  Units eject a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other with instantaneous response.  Air speed is easily controlled by regulating inlet air pressure.
Line Vacs are available in aluminum, Type 303SS, Type 316SS and hardened alloy to resist abrasion in sizes from 3/8 inch (10mm) through 5 inches (127mm). They come in styles for use with hose, threaded NPT for use with pipe and a sanitary flange model for use with flanged pipe. The drum cover comes complete with hose clamps and a durable spring buckle strap for quick and easy installation.

NEW From EXAIR! The Hazardous Location Cabinet Cooler – For Use In Classified Areas

EXAIR is always focused on releasing new products and improving on existing product lines, and 2018 has been no different! Earlier on this year we introduced the New Super Air Scraper as an accessory to our 2” Flat Nozzles and Safety Air Guns. Just last month, EXAIR has also introduced a new line of products to the Cabinet Cooler family: The Hazardous Location Cabinet Cooler.
Cabinet Cooler Overview>>

EXAIR’s Hazardous Location Cabinet Coolers are engineered for use with purged (not included) electrical enclosures. The HazLoc Cabinet Coolers are not purged and pressurized control systems and should not be relied upon nor used in place of a purged and pressurized controller. They are meant for use in conjunction with a purged and pressurized control system. These systems have been approved and tested by UL for use in the following areas:
Class I Div 1&2 – Groups A, B, C, and D
Class I Areas refer to the presence of flammable gases or vapors in quantities sufficient to produce explosive or ignitable mixtures. Class I Div 1 will have ignitable concentrations of flammable gases present during the course of normal operations. This is level of approval is one that differentiates the EXAIR Hazardous Location Cabinet Coolers from much of the competition. Class 1 Div 2 areas will have flammable gasses or vapors present only in the event of an accident or during unusual operating conditions.Class II Div 1&2 – Groups E, F, and G
Class II areas are locations in which combustible dust may exist. The end user shall avoid installation of the device in a Class II environment where dust may be readily disturbed from the exhausts of the Hazardous Location Cabinet Cooler. Any dust formed in the vicinity of the cooler must be cleaned regularly.Class III
Class III areas are locations that will have ignitable fibers or flyings present. This is common within the textile industry.The Cabinet Cooler also carries a temperature rating of T3C, meaning it cannot be installed near any materials that could auto-ignite at temperatures in excess of 320°F. For a comprehensive list and description of all of the various Classified areas, check out the UL website.
The Hazardous Location Cabinet Cooler is available in (8) different cooling capacities ranging from 1,000 Btu/hr – 5,600 Btu/hr. The Cabinet Cooler is the best solution for protecting your sensitive electronics from heat, dirt, and moisture. With Nema 4/4X systems available, the Hazardous Location Cabinet Coolers will keep the cabinet cool without compromising the integrity of the enclosure.
If you’ve got an electrical cabinet installed within a hazardous location, fill out the Cabinet Cooler Sizing Guide and allow an Vivek Engineers Application Engineer to determine the most suitable model for you.

Mounting Options for EXAIR’s Super Air Knife


The key towards a successful Super Air Knife  application is making sure it’s installed properly. Using the chart on the installation & maintenance guide to ensure your plumbing is properly sized is the first step. This ensures that an adequate volume of compressed air is able to reach the knife, without causing an unnecessary pressure drop.

Once you’ve planned out the distribution of compressed air to the Super Air Knife you must consider how to mount it in your application. Across the bottom of the knife are ¼-20 tapped holes spaced out evenly every 2” along the knife. A 30” Model 110030 will have (15) holes, a 60” 110060 (30), and so on. These holes are tapped through to allow you to mount the knife to best suit the application.
If you’d rather have a more “out of the box” solution, EXAIR offers our Universal Mounting System. It gives you the ability to mount onto a conveyor rail or machine frame and provide precise positioning for all of EXAIR’s Super Air Knives, Standard Air Knives, Full-Flow Air Knives, as well as the Standard and Super Ion Air Knives. Each system comes with (2) 1/2-13 x 5” long bolts, 2’ long stainless steel rod, mounting hardware, angle bracket, and adjustable swivel clamps. Check out the video below for a demonstration of the adjustability you can achieve with the Model 9060 Universal Mounting System.

Another critical factor to consider is the mounting position of the knife. If the material is moving along a conveyor, the knife should be positioned as closely as possible with the airflow oriented against the direction of travel of the material. By doing so, we increase the amount of time that the material is in contact with the airflow. We call this term counter-flow. Maximizing the time in contact with the laminar airflow from the Super Air Knife gives us the best chance at a successful result. Whether we’re talking about cooling, drying, or cleaning, the longer that the material is in contact with the laminar airflow the better the results will be.

In this photo, the Super Air Knife is positioned upside down at an angle above a conveyor belt, against the direction of travel. We recommend installing the Super Air Knife in this orientation as it allows the airflow to get closest to the material being blown off. They’ve used their own brackets to allow the knife to be adjusted when blowing residual dust off of a conveyor for a mining application. The dust on the belt would build up over time and was difficult to remove. By installing a Super Air Knife, they’re able to continuously remove the dust from the conveyor belt before it becomes a problem.
If you have an application related to above application, kindly contact us in below given contact details. An Application Engineer is ready to assist you in selecting the proper material, length, and mounting method.

EXAIR Has a New Product: The Soft Grip Super Air Scraper

EXAIR has designed a new nozzle called the Super Air Scraper.  This nozzle combines a scraping blade with our 2” Flat Super Air Nozzle.  It creates a mechanical force with a compressed air force to remove stubborn sticky material. This patent-pending nozzle can be added to the EXAIR Soft Grip Air Gun to create a powerful scraping tool.
Let’s breakdown the nozzle.  The 2″ Super Air Scraper nozzle is a model 1144 which has a ¼” NPT female connection.  The model 1144-A includes a ¾ – 32 UN adaptor for connecting to the Soft Grip Safety Air Gun extensions.  The scraper can be changed when worn with a replacement blade; model 902007.  To add flexibility to the Super Air Scraper, a shim set, model 1132SS, can be used to modify the blowing force.  With these combinations, the nozzle complements the scraper as an effective way to clean with compressed air.

To get pressurized air to the nozzle, EXAIR attached the 1144-A Super Air Scraper nozzle to the Soft Grip Safety Air Gun.  This gives a comfortable and ergonomic way to use and operate this product.  We offer different extensions for hard-to-reach applications ranging from 6” (152mm) to 72” (1,829mm) in length.  With the extensions that are 36” (914mm) and longer, EXAIR installed an additional foam grip sleeve.  This gives additional leverage for scraping material at a distance like floor level.  Chip Shields are also offered to prevent blow-back onto the operator.  You can view the details of the new product at this link on our website: Soft Grip Super Air Scraper.

To give some ideas for applications, the Soft Grip Super Air Scraper can be used for removing tape, gasket material, caulk, adhesive, paint, labels, and more.  With the addition of air, the detached material is blown away during scraping, keeping the area clean to target the remaining “stuck” material.  If gummy or flaky substances are a nuisance for workers, the Soft Grip Super Air Scraper can keep the machine or work station clean and operational.
