Line Vac™

Intelligent Compressed Air Product

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

Line Vac

What Is The Line Vac?

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 capacity. Eleven sizes in aluminium and ten sizes in stainless steel are suited to a wide variety of transfer applications.

A Model 6080 3/4" (19mm) Line Vac vacuums plastic as it is drilled.

Why The Line Vac?

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 Vac is a fast, low cost way to convey:
  • Plastic pellets
  • Scrap trim
  • Textiles
  • Bulk solids
  • Food products
  • Chips
  • Paper
  • Pills/tablets
  • Small parts
  • Shavings
  • Sawdust
  • Granules
Convey Plastic Granules
The Model 6083 1 1/2" (38mm) Line Vac conveys plastic granules to the gravity feed hopper on an extruder.

Selecting The Right Model

Line Vac is available in a wide range of sizes to fit your application. Some of the criteria used to select the proper model are:

  • Diameter of parts being conveyed
  • Diameter of hose or tube
  • Rate (weight or volume)
  • Stainless steel (Type 303 and 316) or aluminium

Aluminium is the economical choice for general purpose conveying. Our standard stainless steel models (Type 303) offer good corrosion resistance and are ideal for food service, abrasive or corrosive applications. For critical applications including certain foods and pharmaceutical products, Type 316 stainless steel models provide excellent corrosion resistance.

The High Temperature Line Vac models are suited for temperatures up to 900°F (482°C). Frequently used for sampling hot flue gases, this High Temperature Line Vac can resist back pressure from long pipe lengths with numerous bends. New Heavy Duty Line Vac moves the highest volumes and resists wear.
