On a production line a Hi-Vac manifold system can clean dust and sand from molds, remove machining chips, pick up spills, etc. Inlets can be adapted to production machinery such as cutting heads.
An intercept hopper is used in manifold systems where the material being picked up is to be reclaimed. Most of the material drops out of the airstream into the hopper. Dust and fines continue on and are collected at the “Powerhead.”
A manifold system is ideal for cleaning out several rail cars, trucks, or barges at one time.
As a vacuum conveyor, Hi-Vac is ideal for picking up materials form multiple points for delivery to a single location. The “Powerhead” can be unhooked for general cleanup or can be used with other conveying systems.
With proper valving, one Hi-Vac can convey materials to multiple locations, doing the work of several pressure transporters. Fines can be left with the material or collected at the “Powerhead.”
Use a Hi-Vac to load conveyors, bins, trucks, rail cars, barges, etc. A variety of hopper and gate configurations is available for batch, semi-continuous, or continuous discharge.
