Heavy Duty Dry Vac

Vacuum more material in less time! Industrial duty vacuum has a rugged construction to resist wear!

What is The Heavy Duty Dry Vac?

EXAIR's Heavy Duty Dry Vac attaches to an ordinary 30, 55 or 110 gallon open-top drum to run it into a powerful, industrial duty vacuum cleaner. The Heavy Duty Dry Vac has been engineered to vacuum more dry materials in less time with less wear.

Designed for tough industrial environments, the hardened alloy construction resists premature weaar while the increased power handles difficult jobs and harsh condition. The quiet operation makes it suitable for a wide variety of applications including the clean up of abrasive materials like steel shot, garnet, metal chips and sand while also useful for general purpose applications like vacuuming floors, machines, work stations, industrial machinery and equipment.

Why The Heavy Duty Dry Vac?

Electrically operated vacuums have motors and impellers that clog and wear out quickly. There's also a potential shock hazard when electric vacs are used in standing liquids. The Heavy Duty Dry Vac is compressed air powered which eliminates the shock hazard. It has No Moving Parts to wear out or break, to assure long life. It is quiet with a sound level that is half that electric vacs. A static resistant hose prevents painful shocks when vacuuming dry materials.

How The Heavy Duty Dry Vac Works?

Compressed air, normally 80-100 PSIG (5.5 - 6.9 BAR), flows through the inlet (1) into an annular plenum chamber (2). It is then injected into the throat through directed nozzles (3). These jets of air create a vacuum at the intake (4) which draws material in, accelerates it through the unit (5), and directs it to the bottom of the drum. The airflow exhausts through the port in the drum lid. Airborne particles are trapped by the filter bag (6). The Heavy Duty Dry Vac unit (5) and vacuum tools are built to withstand rugged use. Warning: Do not use with combustible dust.

Here are some sample of applications:

110 Gallon Heavy Duty Dry Vac provides maximum capacity cleanup for a large, dusty walnut shell blasting application.


The Heavy Duty Dry Vac cleans up a spill of tumbling media.



Heavy Duty Dry Vac vacuums up abrasive garnet from the work surface surrounding a vibratory bowl used to deburr parts.



Sand that covers the floor around a sand blaster is quickly vacuumed into the drum using the rugged floor tool.
