Heavy-Duty Air-Powered Conveyors Resist Wear
Designed for rugged, industrial applications, Exair’s 2-1/2" and 3" Heavy Duty Line Vacs are in-line conveyors that transport high volumes of material through ordinary hose or tube.
Exair’s 2-1/2" and 3" Heavy Duty Line Vacs are in-line conveyors that transport high volumes of material through ordinary hose or tube. Designed for rugged, industrial applications, the conveyors feature a hardened-alloy construction that prevent premature wear when transporting abrasive or heavy materials like shot blast, tumbling media or metal fittings. Large throat diameters make it possible to convey more material over longer vertical and horizontal lengths. According to the company, the conveying rate is typically twice that of ordinary air-powered conveyors.
The units eject a small amount of compressed air through directed nozzles into the throat to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other. The material conveying rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator. An optional bracket permits easy mounting. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance-free operation.Seven sizes ranging to 3" (76 mm) are available to fit popular hose and tube diameters. Threaded models are available for use with common pipe. Standard duty models made from aluminum, 303SS and 316SS also are available in nine sizes, with or without threads
It has been shown that the inexpensive chemically accelerated vibratory surface finishing (CAVSF) process can reduce the average surface roughness.
