Convey parts, materials, waste - with no moving parts!

EXAIR's compressed air operated Line Vac connects to standard hose or tube to create a powerful in-line conveyor. The compact design features large throat diameters for maximum throughput capability. Eleven sizes in aluminum and ten in stainless steel are suited to a wide variety of transfer applications. Line Vac conveyors are ideal for moving large volumes of material over long distances. A small amount of compressed air is injected through directed nozzles to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other, with instantaneous response. The material flow rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator. An optional bracket permits easy mounting. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation. Line Vacs are available in a number of styles, materials, and sizes, including Line Vac, Threaded Line Vac, Heavy Duty Line Vac, Sanitary Flange Line Vac and Light Duty Line Vac.
