Chip Vac™

EXAIR’s Chip Vac vacuums chips and other dry materials directly into an ordinary open-top drum. Since the vacuum uses only a small amount of compressed air as the power source, there are no moving parts to clog or wear out. Chip Vac is used to clean chips from fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws mills and other industrial equipment. The powerful suction is ideal for fast, efficient cleaning. Dusty materials such as absorbents are trapped by the 0.1 micron filter bag. Sound level is half that of electric vacs.
