This very powerful pneumatically (air powered) powered vacuum connects to the top of a 55 gallon drum (not included). Rated at a very powerful 212 inches (which equals 16" of mercury) of vertical water lift, this vacuum can suck up viscous materials, debris, and other wet or dry material. No moving parts makes it virtually maintenance free.
Because it is air powered, it works where other vacuums cannot.
Automatic float shut-off prevents overfill in wet applications.
Powerful water lift sucks up to 2 gallons per second. Power depends on amount of cubic feet per minute of airflow supplied by compressor (see below).
For dusty pickup jobs, there is an optional pulse cleaning system to blow out filter into drum - email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing.
Option to get this vacuum for dry operations only (water level float shut off not included) - email us at email@example.com for pricing. This will save you money off price listed here.
Air supply required: Compressor not included in purchase. Compressor must have a 1/2-inch air line, regulated at 60 psi at vacuum inlet (max 70 psi at vacuum inlet), with 35-80 cfm air movement. In most cases, this will require an industrial size compressor. Airflow must be regulated at the vacuum by a regulator you supply set to 60-70 psi. At an airflow of 35 cfm/60 psi, vacuum produces 136" vertical water lift (equal to 10" mercury lift). At an airflow of 80 cfm/60 psi, vacuum produces 200" vertical water lift (equal to 15" mercury lift). At an airflow of 80 cfm/70 psi, vacuum produces 212" vertical water lift (equal to 16" mercury lift).
