Exair’s new 303 stainless steel 3/8 NPT and 1/2 NPT Threaded Line Vac Air Operated Conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. Their small size reportedly enables them to fit in the cramped spaces and tight confines of many production lines. The Threaded Line Vac attaches to plumbing pipe couplers, sanitary flanges and other pipe fittings to build a complete system. The new sizes make it possible to sample gas streams, sample grains or other ingredients, move small parts or transport scrap or product out of small spaces.
Threaded Line Vac Conveyors eject a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end with high output flows on the other. Response is reportedly instantaneous. Regulating the compressed air pressure provides control of the conveying rate. Applications include scrap trim removal, material conveying, part transfer, fiber tensioning, filling operations and sampling.
303 Stainless Steel Threaded Line Vacs are CE compliant and are suited to a variety of conveying applications. Larger threaded sizes in up to 3 NPT and smooth end models for hose up to five inches are also available in aluminum, 303SS and 316SS.
