Airvac Abrasive Vacuum Recovery


Abrasive Vacuum Recovery. The Airvac with Cyclone Separator is a compact air-operated vacuum system that recovers abrasives for recycling. It is both efficient and cost effective.


Incorporating the Airvac as the prime mover, it can produce above 14” Hg of vacuum when connected to an air supply of 250 cfm at 80 psi. At these levels 5-6 ton per hour recovery rates can be attained. With just two units, a hopper/cyclone and a dust collector, the unit is flexible and extremely robust that’s easy to use, with the performance of larger, more expensive machines. The system will in fact recover solids up to 50mm (2”) in diameter over distances in excess of 100 metres, dependent upon particle size, type of material, volume and pressure of air supply.

Maintenance and operator attention is reduced to a minimum, as the Airvac has only one moving part. With no electrical power required, there’s no risk of fire or explosion, particularly important in inflammable areas. The system conforms to all health and safety at work acts, particularly in respect of the low noise levels – 83db at 2 metres.


Method of Operation


All material is recovered through the gulper suction head and is drawn via the rubber lined hose into the cyclone. The vortex created separates the very fine dusts from the heavier particles which fall, under gravity, into the hopper. A dump valve on the hopper is operated by an adjustable timer which can be set to suit the rate of recovery. All material dust travels along the flexible intermediate hose to the filter box. Inside the box the 18 filter socks collect the dust as the airstream passes through. Clean air is discharged through the JetPump each time the machine stops by reverse pulsing into the dust compartment situated at the bottom of the filter box.
