Standard Line Vac

Convey parts, materials, waste - WITH NO MOVING PARTS!

Line Vac - uses a small amount of compressed air to convert ordinary pipe, hose, or tube into a long distance conveyor.

  • No Moving Parts to clog or maintain
  • Ideal for hopper loading, fiber tensioning, trim removal, and material transfer
  • Available in aluminum and stainless steel for hygienic applications
  • Complies with OSHA noise and pressure standards

EXAIR's compressed air operated Line Vac connects to standard hose to create a powerful in-line conveyor material handling system.

Unlike belt or screw type conveyor equipment, Line Vac conveyors are ideal for moving large volumes of material over long distances without clogging or jamming. 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.

Sizes will fit from 3/8" to 5" inside diameter hose. Available in aluminum, type 303 stainless steel or type 316 stainless steel.

How the Line Vac Works?

Compressed air 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 and accelerates it through the unit (5) for conveying over long vertical or horizontal distances.

Available version:

Threaded Lne Vacs - provides the same outstanding performance as the Line Vac with the added benefit of common threaded fastening. The standard threading allows easy attachment to common plumbing pipe and fittings.
