Cooler temperatures are right around the corner which can lead to low humidity and in turn, static electricity that can wreak havoc on manufacturing processes. One industry that deals with this the most is printing and paper manufacturers. Watch a video on how the Super Ion Air Knife can eliminate static in printing processes and keep operations running smoothly.

We all know the drill, you want to run your coolant for as long as possible because that liquid is not cheap! Especially if you have several machines or even hundreds! But the results of running them longer than you should often stink, (pun intended) they turn sour, the lubrication properties start to diminish and you do not get the benefits you once got! Not to mention chips and small fines (which the stinky bacteria collect upon) can start to clog the system up. Here at EXAIR we had the same problem in our machine shop, so we designed the EXAIR Chip Trapper and use them to this day!
There are some machines which are capable of cleaning the tramp oil and removing any chips or shavings, but these tend to be very expensive and not very effective. Exair tested a few different methods here at EXAIR in machine shop. As a result of these tests Exair determined that the best foot forward would be to develop something themselves. Enter the EXAIR Chip Trapper. Using either a standard or High Lift Reversible Drum Vac to provide the vacuum source, the Chip Trapper is capable of filling or emptying a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. It is able to pick up both the liquid coolant as well as any chips or shavings that are suspended in the coolant. The liquid is forced through a filter bag inside of the drum which contains any solid materials while allowing the coolant to filter out into the drum. Switching the knob on the Reversible Drum Vac and the directional flow valve to empty will allow the clean coolant to be pumped back out of the drum and reused.
Here is a great overview video of the Chip Trapper Set up and operation!

EXAIR has a variety of Industrial Housekeeping products for your specific applications. Let’s explore the capabilities of our Reversible Drum Vac (RDV). The RDV is a safe, maintenance free system and its purpose is to recover liquids, oils sludge and chips from machine sumps. Since it is reversible, it will also fill your sumps from a fresh drum of machining fluids. This system does not require electricity and runs on compressed air. The RDV is maintenance free as it has no moving parts.
The RDV comes in 2 models which includes a “High Lift” version of the RDV and creates a maximum lift up to 15 feet of water column. The RDV comes in 4 capacities of 5, 30, 55 and 110 gallon drums while the High Lift comes in 30, 55 and 110 gallon drums. Let’s now focus on the RDV and the options for purchase.
The first thing to consider when purchasing your RDV is the capacity which I just mentioned of 5, 30, 55 and 110. Once you decided the capacity we have 3 models to choose. The Model 6196 is your basic model and comes with the vacuum unit, stand pipe, vacuum hose and aluminum wand. It is the basics of what you need to empty and fill your machine sumps.
The model 6296 is the same as the 6196 but also includes drum dolly, ABS spill recovery kit, tool holder and all tools.
The model 6396 includes everything as described with the Model 6296 but also includes the drum, drum dolly, upgrade to heavy duty aluminum tools, ABS spill recovery kit, tool holder and air hose.
