Chip Vac

Vacuums chips
directly into a drum - with no moving parts!
Image
EXAIR’s Chip Vac is used to clean chips from fixtures, floors & work surfaces of machining centres, lathes, saws, mills & other industrial equipment. The Chip Vac is suitable for either dry or wet chips & delivers them directly to an ordinary 55 gallon open-top (45 imperial gallons/ 205 litres) drum. Chip Vac has a powerful suction which is ideal for fast & efficient cleaning. For small jobs EXAIR has a Mini Chip Vac System that delivers the same cleaning power & comes with a 5 gallon drum.

Why The Chip Vac?

The compressed air operated Chip Vac is an industrial duty vacuum designed specifically for vacuuming chips. It creates a powerful direct flow action that vacuums metal, wood or plastic chips into an ordinary drum. Designed for occasional use with dusty materials, the included filter bag keeps the surrounding air clean.
Electrically operated “all purpose” vacuums aren't designed for use in industrial environments. As a result, motors wear out quickly and impellers clog. The Chip Vac has no moving parts to wear out or break which ensures long life. Sound level is half that of electric vacs.
The Chip Vac Systems include a drum lid with a locking ring that fits an open top drum. In less than a minute, the Chip Vac can be removed and easily placed onto another drum to keep different materials separate for recycling. Constant heavy lifting and dumping of the vacuum cleaner tanks is eliminated since all chips are vacuumed directly into the drum.

  • Powerful direct flow action
  • Includes accessories
  • 50% quieter than electric vacs
Compressed air, normally 80-100 PSlG (5.5 - 6.9 BAR), 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, accelerates it through the unit (5), and directs it to the bottom of the drum. The airflow exhausts through the port in the drum lid. Airborne particles are trapped by the filter bag (6).


The Chip Vac System can be used with an open head steel, fiber or plastic drum that is in good condition (ANSI Standard #MH2-2004). To prevent material contamination, a poly drum liner can be inserted into the drum.
