Vacuums chips directly into a 55 gallon drum - with no moving parts!
The Chip Vac picks up dry or wet chips and delivers
them directly to an ordinary 55 gallon (40 imperial gallon) drum.
Chip Vac is used to clean chips from fixtures, floors and work surfaces
of machining centers, lathes, saws, mills and other industrial equipment.

The compressed air operated Chip Vac is an industrial
duty vacuum designed specifically for vacuuming chips. It creates
a powerful cyclonic action that vacuums metal, wood or plastic chips
into a 55 gallon drum. Dusty materials such as absorbents are trapped
by the 0.1 micron filter bag to keep the surrounding air clean. Chip Vac's lever lock drum lid fits an ordinary
open top 55 gallon 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 vacuum cleaner tanks is eliminated since all chips are vacuumed
directly to the 55 gallon drum.
Electrically operated "all
purpose" vacuums aren't designed for use in industrial environments.
As a result, motors wear out quickly and impellers clog. Chip Vac
has no moving parts to wear out or break which ensures long life.
Sound level is half that of electric vacuums.

Air consumption has been minimized by using the appropriate amount
of air required for vacuuming chips. The Chip Vac System can
be used with an open head steel, fiber or plastic drum that is in
good condition (ANSI Standard #MH2-1997). To prevent material contamination,
a poly drum liner can be inserted into the drum.
