Larger 303SS Air Conveyor Converts Standard Pipe to Convey in Corrosive Environments


EXAIR’s new Type 303 Stainless Steel 2-1/2 NPT Threaded Line Vac Air Operated Conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. They are ideal for food, chemical, pharmaceutical and medical processes or areas likely to be wet and corrosive which require the benefits of 303SS including excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, performance in higher temperatures, long service life and low maintenance. Their larger size makes them perfect for conveying bigger 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 common pipe and fittings that are readily available.
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.
2-1/2 NPT 303SS Threaded Line Vacs are CE compliant and meet OSHA pressure requirements. The complete size range is 3/8 NPT through 3 NPT. Threaded Line Vac models are also available in type 316 stainless steel for even more demanding high temperature, corrosive and hygienic environments. Visit www.vivekengineers.net  for the large variety of Air Operated Conveyors available including Light Duty, Standard, Threaded, Heavy Duty and Sanitary Flange.

How Exair Air Nozzles Work


Air Nozzles use the Coanda effect to amplify compressed airflow up to 25 times or more. As illustrated on the right, compressed air (black arrows) is ejected through a series of nozzles on the outer perimeter. As the air travels along the outer wall of the nozzle, surrounding air (blue arrows) is entrained into the stream. The air stream that results is a high volume, high velocity blast of air at minimal consumption. The air is always ejected so it can vent safely, well below OSHA dead end pressure requirements, should the nozzle end be blocked.

Selecting The Right Air Nozzle

EXAIR manufactures a wide selection of Air Nozzles and Jets, which are divided into two groups. The first group includes Air Nozzles and Jets that deliver force up to 22 ounces (624 grams) and are suitable for most applications. The second group includes Air Nozzles that produce high force up to 23 lbs (10.43 kg) where additional reach and force are required.

Six Steps To Optimizing Your Compressed Air System

Step 1: Measure the air consumption to find sources that use a lot of compressed air.
Step 2: Find and fix the leaks in your compressed air system.
Step 3: Upgrade your blowoff , cooling and drying operations using engineered compressed air products.
Step 4: Turn off the compressed air when it isn’t in use.
Step 5: Use intermediate storage of compressed air near the point of use.
Step 6: Control the air pressure at the point of use to minimize air consumption.
