Exair Air Operated Conveyors
Exair Line Vacs use a small amount of compressed air to generate a vacuum by a Venturi effect.The unique design generates a high velocity to create a powerful vacuum on one side. Once the product reaches the throat area of the Line Vac, the compressed air will carry the product the rest of the way. We can reach horizontal distances up to 100 feet (30 meters) and vertical heights up to 20 feet (6 meters). EXAIR manufactures a variety of Line Vacs in different sizes, styles, and materials. Here is an overview of the Line Vacs that EXAIR offers.
Line Vac: Exair standard Line Vac is the most versatile product in this family. Exair has two types of connections, slip-on ends for hose connections (Line Vac) and threaded ends for pipe connection(Thraeded Line Vac). EXAIR can also mix the connection types on each end. They range in diameters from 3/8” (10mm) up to 5” (127mm). Exair manufactures the Line Vacs in aluminum, 303SS, and 316SS; but don’t let that deter you from asking for special types of materials. Exair has a high temperature version that can withstand temperatures up to 900° F (482° C). These Line Vacs work great in applications for loading plastic pellets in hoppers, discarding scrap pieces, trim removal and transferring material. If an operator has to place a bag of dry material on his shoulder to climb stairs, a Line Vac would be a much better alternative.
Heavy Duty Line Vacs: They are made from a hardened alloy steel for abrasion resistance. The generators inside these Line Vacs are more powerful than the standard models; so, that they can convey heavier materials at higher conveyance rates.They can reach conveying rates as high as 40 lbs./min. (18.2 Kg/min) of material.With the hardened alloy construction, they are great for sand blasting materials, ceramic, glass and steel shot.They are manufactured with inlet and outlet connections for ship-on hoses or threaded pipes. EXAIR stocks the Heavy Duty Line Vacs in the range from ¾” (19mm) to 3” (76mm) for both hose and NPT connections.These Line Vacs are our most powerful design with great wear resistance.
Light Duty Line Vacs: On the other end of the Line-Vac spectrum, EXAIR created the Light Duty Line Vac. They use much less compressed air than the other Line Vacs which is great for moving lightweight materials over short distances. They can also be used for removing smoke and fumes from a work area. The Light Duty Line Vac ranges from ¾” (19mm) up to 6” (152mm) diameter for slip-on hose connections. This two-piece design provides an effective way of moving material at a lower cost. It can be used in applications like hopper loading, fiber tensioning, filling operations, and smoke removal. For moving material within a short distance, the Light Duty Line Vac could be the proper product to use.
Sanitary Flange Line Vacs: Exair latest engineering design within the Line Vac family is the Sanitary Flange Line Vacs. They can convert pipes into a useful conveyor for bulk material and waste removal. They use an ISO2852 flange for easy disassembly and cleaning to reduce bacterial entrapment. They ae made from 316 stainless steel material for superior corrosion resistance.They come in four different sizes to fit the sanitary flanges from 1 ½” up to a 3” flange. For sensitive applications where cleanliness is a major requirement, the Sanitary Flange Line Vac are manufactured for these conditions.
With all of the EXAIR Line Vacs above, they can be sold as kits. A kit will include a filter, regulator and a bracket. (Bracket are not sold with all types and sizes.) The filter will help keep the Line Vac clean as well as the product that it being conveyed. The regulator is a great tool to vary the conveyance rates for better control. The bracket helps to mount the Line Vac to a sturdy base for support.
