Sanitary Flange Line Vacs Ease Installation and Cleaning for Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Food Systems

EXAIR’s Sanitary Flange Line Vac™ is the best way to convey material through systems which require frequent or mandatory cleaning. The ISO 2852 compatible sanitary flanges limit areas where bacteria can grow and help prevent contamination. Made from type 316 stainless steel to provide maximum hygiene and corrosion resistance, these Line Vacs are available in 1-1/2", 2", 2-1/2" and 3" flange sizes. Flanged Line Vacs convert flanged piping systems into a powerful conveyor for product, parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. Their larger throat size makes them perfect for conveying bigger parts and large volumes of material over long distances.
Sanitary Flange 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 material conveying, part transfer and filling operations. 
All EXAIR Line Vacs are CE compliant, meet OSHA pressure requirements, and are ready to ship from stock. Additional families of Line Vac are available to fit hose, tube or threaded pipe. Many smaller sizes are available down to 3/8" hose or 3/8 NPT threads and large hose or pipe sizes up to 6". Many materials are available including aluminum, type 303 and type 316 stainless steel.

Exhaust of Welding Fumes by using EXAIR 2″ Super Air Amplifier

While most applications utilize the outlet flow of the Super Air Amplifier to blow off or cool a part or material, the ability of the Super Air Amplifier to entrain large amounts of ambient air can also be utilized to convey light materials or to draw in dust, smoke, or fumes from the surrounding environment.

Recently a customer had an application to install the Model 120022 Super Air Amplifier in welding booths. They did have a current fume extraction system in place, but due to the distance between the vent hoods and the operation some of the fumes were still not being captured. The suggestion was to install a 2” Model 120022 at each booth near the origin of the welding fumes. As the exhaust side of the Super Air Amplifiers come in sizes of ¾”, 1-1/4”, 2”, 4”, and 8” the exhaust flow can be ducted with standard size hose. The placed a 2” ID hose onto the exhaust of the Super Air Amplifier which allowed the fumes to be captured into the intake of the amplifier and be carried towards the vent hood.

This eliminated a safety issue for the operators and was much less expensive than redesigning the entire welding booths and current extraction system. With no moving parts to wear out, the Super Air Amplifier requires absolutely zero maintenance when supplied with clean, dry compressed air. After installing onto each of their welding booths, operators were pleased with the performance and we were able to eliminate the safety hazard for this facility.

With a range of different sized Super Air Amplifiers as well as a line of Adjustable Air Amplifiers, EXAIR has a solution for you if you need to move A LOT of air for a variety of reasons.

DESCHNER-USA provides various types of Industrial shock absorbers



Deschner Corporation was founded in 1959 by Richard Deschner. An inventor by nature and an engineer by training Mr. Deschner developed the original Slimline Kinechek speed regulators and Cushioneer shock absorbers. Both Kinecheks and Cushioneers use a unique seal design he invented which makes the units absolutely leak proof. They also use the unique adjustment mechanism he developed which allows them to fit a much wider variety of applications and loads when compared to competitor’s products.
Cushioneer shock absorbers smoothly decelerate moving equipment and material to a stop while minimizing G forces to prevent damage and allow faster cycling, processing time, or handling speed. Kinechek speed regulators move at a constant speed throughout their stroke to allow consistent control of linear motion, such as that provided by an air cylinder.


The simple, streamlined and uncomplicated appearance of the Cushioneer shock absorbers and Kinechek, MiniK, and SuperK speed regulators hide from view the extraordinary development, design effort, and care in manufacturing inside every Deschner product. In fact nine patents have been awarded to Deschner products because of their innovative design.
Today Deschner continues to manufacture Cushioneers and Kinecheks at its modern manufacturing facility in Southern California. These products are built to last and will run, trouble free for millions of cycles. Many units have lasted more than twenty years and/or tens of millions of cycles in constant use by customers. In March, 2014 Deschner shipped its one millionth unit and today thousands of Deschner products are in use all over the world including with many of the largest brand name manufacturers of industrial equipment who require the highest performance products possible.
Recently Deschner released an exciting new product, the Impacta shock absorber. This new, self adjusting, shock absorber is designed with an industry standard fully threaded body for easy installation and replacement of other manufacturer’s shock absorbers. The Impacta self adjusting shock absorber has demonstrated the ability to handle a much wider range of loads than competitor’s units and is available in metric thread sizes M14, M20, M25, and M27.

Comparison: EXAIR Cabinet Coolers vs. Air to Air Heat Exchangers


At EXAIR Cabinet Cooler System is for  industrial enclosure cooling solutions and in many cases those cooling solutions have remained in place for decades. In the time, in the market with industrial enclosure cooling solutions we’ve encountered a number of alternative means for enclosure cooling.  One of those methods is an air-to-air heat exchanger.

An air-to-air heat exchanger uses the temperature differential between the ambient air surrounding an enclosure and the hot air inside an enclosure to create a cooling effect.  A closed loop system exchanges the heat inside the enclosure with the outside air in an effort to maintain a set internal temperature.  The heat exchange of most air-to-air unit relies on a heat pipe, a heat-transfer device which converts an internal refrigerant liquid into vapor by placing one end of the pipe in contact with the hot environment.  The heated vapor travels to the other end of the pipe which is in contact with a cooler environment.  The vapor condenses back into a liquid (releasing latent heat) and returning to the hot end of the pipe and the cycle repeats.


But, this type of a solution does give some cause for concern, especially when considering their use in an industrial environment.  Here are the key points to keep in mind when comparing an air-to-air cooler to an EXAIR Cabinet Cooler.


Required temperature differential based on ambient air temp

An air-to-air heat exchange relies on the ΔT between the ambient air temperature and the internal enclosure air temperature to produce cooling.  If this ΔT is low, or the ambient temperature rises, cooling is diminished.  This means that as the temperatures in your facility begin to rise, air-to-air heat exchangers become less and less effective.  Larger air-to-air heat exchangers can be used, but these may be even larger than the enclosure itself.

EXAIR Cabinet Coolers rely on the ΔT between the cold air temperature from the Cabinet Cooler (normally ~20°F) and the desired internal enclosure temperature (normally 95°F).  The cold air temperature from the Cabinet Cooler is unaffected by increases in ambient temperatures.  The large ΔT and high volume cold air flow produced by a Cabinet Cooler results in more cooling capacity.  And, we can increase cooling capacity from a Cabinet Cooler without increasing its physical footprint, which is already much, much smaller than an air-to-air type of unit.
Cooling in high temperature environments

Due to their nature of operation, an air-to-air heat exchanger must have an ambient temperature which is lower than the desired internal temperature of the enclosure.  If the ambient air has a higher temperature, air-to-air units provide zero cooling.

Cabinet Coolers, on the other hand, can be used in hot, high temperature environments up to 200°F (93°C).

Cooling in dirty environments

Dirt in the ambient environment will impact cooling performance with an air-to-air heat exchanger.  In order for the air-to-air unit to effectively remove heat, the heat pipe must have access to ambient air.  With any exposure to the ambient environment comes the possibility for the ambient end of the heat pipe to become covered in ambient contaminants such as dust.  This dust will create an insulation barrier between the heat pipe and the ambient air, decreasing the ability for the heat pipe to condense the vapors within.  Because of this, most air-to-air devices use filters to separate the heat pipe from the ambient environment.  But, when these filters become clogged, access to ambient temperatures are reduced, and cooling capacity of the air-to-air unit reduces as well.


Size and time required to install

Air-to-air heat exchangers vary in size, but even the smallest units can have large dimensions.  Many applications have limited space on the enclosure, and a large, bulky solution can be prohibitive.  Couple this with the time and modification required to the enclosure to install a large air-to-air unit, and the “solution” may end up bringing additional problems.

Another key aspect of the Cabinet Cooler is its size.  Small, compact, and easy to mount on the top or side of an enclosure, Cabinet Coolers install in minutes to remove overheating problems.

Pulls chips and dusts into the Chip Vac

A company manufactures sintered metal parts using powdered metal. After the powdered metal is sintered and cooled the manufacturer performs a reaming application. this produces a small amount of chips and dust which has been a housekeeping issue. They were manually cleaning the mess and needed to eliminate the cleaning process. The customer ordered the Model 6193 Chip Vac to pull the small chips and dusts into the chip vac which can be emptied easily. This saves time and eliminates housekeeping issues.
