New conveyor for hot materials

Louise Smyth

Exair’s new 2.5 inch and 3 inch High Temperature Line Vac Conveyors convert hose, tube, or pipe into a powerful in-line conveying system for high temperature materials up to 900 degrees F (482 degrees C). These air-operated conveyors are available with smooth ends and are secured with a hose clamp or they are available with NPT threaded ends, to mount onto threaded pipe. They feature large throat diameters for maximum throughput capability.

The High Temperature Line Vac Conveyors eject a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end, resulting in high output flows on the other. The response is instantaneous. Regulating the compressed air pressure provides infinite control of the conveying rate. They are CE-compliant and available in seven sizes from 3/4 inch to 3 inch. Construction is durable Type 303 or Type 316 stainless steel to resist high temperature, corrosion and contamination. Applications include sampling hot flue gases, exhausting fumes, conveying soot, ashes, salts and other hot debris. Other models for hopper loading, scrap trim removal, small part transfer and packaging are available.
