EXAIR’s new aluminum 2-1/2 NPT and 3 NPT threaded-line, vac air-operated conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. Their large size makes them ideal for conveying big parts and large volumes of material over long distances. The Threaded Line Vac is designed to attach to standard plumbing pipe couplers, making it easy to build a complete system using pipe and fittings available from any home center, hardware store or plumbers supply.
Threaded-line vac conveyors eject a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end with high-output flows on the other. Response is instantaneous and regulating the compressed air pressure provides infinite control of the conveying rate. Applications include scrap trim removal, material conveying, part transfer, fiber tensioning and filling operations.
Aluminum threaded-line vacs are CE-compliant and meet OSHA pressure requirements. Smaller sizes down to 3/8 NPT are available in stock. Models are also available in type 303 and type 316 stainless steel for more-demanding high-temperature, corrosive and hygienic environments. Line vacs also come with smooth ends for use with hose and tubing, and heavy-duty line vacs provide abrasion resistance while producing maximum power for high bulk density material. If a secure pipe connection is required where the line vac will be frequently removed for cleaning, sanitary-flange line vacs are also available.
