EXAIR Heavy Duty Dry Vac: Overview

Whenever we go for industrial vacuums, a common thinking comes to mind wheather it would be nice to have a durable, long lasting vacuum that is quiet. There is such a vacuum that has these qualities; the EXAIR Heavy Duty Dry Vac System.  This vacuum system has no moving parts, no motors to fail, or bearings to wear.  They only require compressed air to operate.  The Heavy Duty Dry Vac is used to vacuum solid materials like plastic, sand, and even denser materials like steel shot.  The vacuum pumps are made from a hardened alloy construction to resist wear and abrasion, and it is designed to generate a strong vacuum level measuring -60” H2O (-15 KPa) at 80 PSIG (5.5 Bar).  To accommodate the multiple types of industrial applications, EXAIR provides the Heavy Duty Dry Vac Systems with different options and drum sizes.
The unique design of the Heavy Duty Dry Vac is incorporated in the modified lid that will fit onto a standard 55-gallon, 30-gallon, or 110-gallon drum (209L, 114L, or 418L respectively).  A 0.1-micron filter bag mounts in the center of the lid to allow excess air to escape and to contain the contamination inside the drum.  The large surface area of the filters allows for extended use before replacement while the high efficiency will keep the fine particles from re-entering the environment.  Under the drum lid, EXAIR used some features to help reduce the noise level even further.  We added a silencing foam and an extended hose.  This will muffle the noise and direct the contamination toward the bottom of the drum.  With these additional features, the noise level is only 82 dBA at 80 PSIG (5.5 bar).  Measure that against any electric vacuum.
The Heavy Duty Dry Vac Systems come in three different options to best fit your application.  The standard option comes with the drum lid described above and a latching ring to attach to the drum.  It also comes with 10 feet (3m) of an anti-static hose, 20 feet (6m) of a compressed air hose, an aluminum chip wand, a hose hanger, a gauge, and a manual operational valve.  This option is available with three different drum sizes.  For example, model 6197 is for the 55-gallon drum (209L), model 6197-30 is for the 30-gallon drum (114L) and model 6197-110 is for the 110-gallon drum (418L).
