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 from fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws, mills and other industrial equipment. The powerful suction is ideal for fast and efficient cleaning. EXAIR’s Mini Chip Vac System delivers the same cleaning power for small jobs. It comes complete with a 5 gallon drum and all the tools.
The compressed air operated Chip Vac is an industrial duty vacuum designed specifically for vacuuming chips. It creates a powerful direct fl ow action that vacuums metal, wood or plastic chips into an ordinary drum. Designed for occasional use with dusty materials, the included filter bag keeps the surrounding air clean. 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 diff erent materials separate for recycling. Constant heavy lifting and dumping of the vacuum cleaner tanks is eliminated since all chips are vacuumed directly into the drum.
