Exair sanitary flange air conveyors ease installation, cleaning
Exair Corp., Cincinnati, OH, says its new Sanitary Flange Line Vac air-operated conveyors are designed to convey materials through systems which require frequent or mandatory cleaning. The ISO 2852 compatible sanitary flanges limit areas where bacteria can grow and help prevent contamination.
Made from type 316 stainless steel to provide maximum hygiene and corrosion resistance, these Line Vacs are available in 1½-, 2-, 2½- and 3-in. flange sizes. Flanged Line Vacs convert flanged piping systems into a powerful conveyor for product, parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. Exair says their larger size makes them perfect for conveying bigger parts and large volumes of material over long distances.
Sanitary Flange Line Vacs 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 material conveying, part transfer, fiber tensioning, scrap trim removal and filling operations.
All Exair Line Vacs are CE compliant, meet OSHA pressure requirements and are ready to ship from stock. Additional families of Line Vac are available to fit hose, tube or threaded pipe. Many smaller sizes are available down to 3/8- in. hose or 3/8-NPT threads and large hose or pipe sizes up to 5 in.
Many other materials are available including aluminum and types 303 and 316 stainless steel. A heavy duty Line Vac is available in hardened alloy for abrasion resistance and maximum conveying power.
