It is amazing what you can do with compressed air and ingenuity. The latest product from Exair is its new Heavy Duty Threaded Line VacÃ¢â‚¬Å¡ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ Conveyors. They work like this: a small amount of compressed air is ejected through directed nozzles into ordinary pipe to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other end, effectively creating a powerful conveying system for bulk materials. Response is instantaneous.
The conveying rate is easily controlled using a pressure regulator on the compressed air supply. The Vac line features large throat diameters that make it possible to convey more material over long vertical and horizontal lengths. Five sizes up to 2 in. NPT fit standard plumbing pipe and couplers, making it easy to build a complete conveying system. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation.
For rugged, industrial applications like transferring bulk materials and parts, hopper loading, waste/trim removal, fiber tensioning, chip removal, and filling operations; it has a hardened alloy construction that helps prevent premature wear.
