EXAIR's Threaded Line Vac Makes it Easy to Convert Standard Pipe Into a Powerful, High Volume Conveyor

EXAIR's new aluminum 2-1/2 NPT and 3 NPT Threaded Line Vac Air Operated Conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. Their larger size makes them perfect for conveying bigger parts and large volumes of material over long distances.

EXAIR's new aluminum 2-1/2 NPT and 3 NPT Threaded Line Vac Air Operated Conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. Their larger size makes them perfect for conveying bigger parts and large volumes of material over long distances. The Threaded Line Vac is designed to attach to standard plumbing pipe couplers, making it easy to build a complete system using pipe and fittings available from any home center, hardware store or plumbers supply.


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 instantaneous and regulating the compressed air pressure provides infinite control of the conveying rate. Applications include scrap trim removal, material conveying, part transfer, fiber tensioning and filling operations.

Aluminum Threaded Line Vacs are CE compliant and meet OSHA pressure requirements. Smaller sizes down to 3/8 NPT are available in stock. Threaded Line Vac models are also available in type 303 and type 316 stainless steel for more demanding high temperature, corrosive and hygienic environments. Line Vacs also come with smooth ends for use with hose and tubing and Heavy Duty Line Vacs provide abrasion resistance while producing maximum power for high bulk density material. If a secure pipe connection is required where the Line Vac will be frequently removed for cleaning, Sanitary Flange Line Vacs are also available.

EXAIR Product News Understanding Compressed Air Safety and Savings

Why is compressed air safety a concern? Compressed air is commonly referred to as the "fourth utility" because it is very common as a resource within manufacturing, mining and processing environments. Are there regulations that govern the use of compressed air? Yes, OSHA has two important standards relevant to compressed air. Standard 29 CFR 1910.242(b) is specific to compressed air use for cleaning and states - "Compressed air shall not be used for cleaning purposes except where reduced to less than 30 p.s.i. and then only with effective chip guarding and personal protective equipment. How do EXAIR's engineered air nozzles work? Air Nozzles use the Coanda effect to amplify compressed airflow up to 25 times or more. The air is always ejected so it can vent safely, well below OSHA dead end pressure requirements, should the nozzle end be blocked. Learn more now.
