EXAIR’s Chip Vac picks up dry or wet chips and delivers them directly to an ordinary open-top drum. The Chip Vac is used to clean chips fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws, and other industrial equipment. The powerful suction is suitable for fast and efficient cleaning.
The compressed air operated Chip Vac is an industrial duty vacuum designed specifically for vacuuming chips. It creates a powerful direct flow action that vacuums metal, wood or plastic chips into an ordinary drum. Constant heavy lifting and dumping of the vacuum cleaner tanks is eliminated since all chips are vacuumed directly into the drum.
Electrically operated “all purpose” vacuums aren’t designed for use in industrial environments. As a result, motors wear out quickly and impellers clog. The Chip Vac has no moving parts to wear out or break which ensures long life. Sound level is half that of electric vacs.
The Chip Vac Systems include a drum lid with a locking ring that fits an open top drum. In less than a minute, the Chip Vac can be removed and easily placed onto another drum to keep different materials separate for recycling. Chip Vacs are available in 5, 30, 55 and 110 gallon sizes.
