A Model 6084 2" (51mm) Line Vac transports scrap cellophane trim to a waste barrel.
The Model 6083 1-1/2" (38mm) Line Vac conveys plastic granules to the gravity feed hopper on an extruder.

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.

Applications

  • Hopper loading
  • Fiber tensioning
  • Material conveying
  • Waste/trim removal
  • Chip removal
  • Part transfer
  • Filling operations

Advantages

  • Compact
  • Quiet
  • No moving parts
  • Fits standard hose or tube
  • Aluminum or stainless steel
  • Eleven sizes
  • High throughput capability

How The Line Vac Works

Compressed air flows through the inlet (1) into an annular plenum chamber (2). It is then injected into the throat through directed nozzles (3). These jets of air create a vacuum at the intake (4) which draws material in and accelerates it through the unit(5) for conveying over long vertical or horizontal distances.

Line Vac Conveying Rates

Line Vacs are available in a number of styles, materials, and sizes. Each has a large, smooth, straight bore that allows as much material to pass through as possible.Infinite control of the flow rate through the Line Vac can be controlled by a pressure regulator. Kits include a pressure regulator that is sized properly for flow.
The actual conveying rate is affected by the size, mass and geometry of the part to be conveyed along with the length, lift and number of bends in the hose, tube or pipe. These variables make it difficult to determine the exact conveying rate for any product, however, our Application Engineers can assist you by comparing the material you want to convey with something that has already been tested.

Line Vac Kits include a Line Vac, mounting bracket, filter separator and pressure regulator (with coupler).
Sound levels for the individual Line Vac units are not provided. The length, bends and configuration of the hose, tube or pipe used in conjunction with the Line Vac to form the complete conveying system will determine the actual sound levels (which can vary greatly).

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 aluminum
Aluminum 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.
Image
A 316 Stainless Steel Line Vac is used by a pharmaceutical company to convey pills and tablets to a packaging station.
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. The Heavy Duty Line Vac shown on page 150 moves the highest volumes and resists wear.
