Metal chips in a machine sump can block the intake of the coolant pump, resulting in reduced coolant flow, which can cause heat-related damage to expensive parts and tooling. Regular cleaning of the sump is a must to ensure a reliable and long service life.
EXAIR can help. Its new, patented High Lift Chip Trapper eliminates this problem and, as a result, extends the life of coolants and eliminates the worry of waste oil solids damaging equipment.
Moves liquid farther and higher
EXAIR’s new chip trapper is designed to quickly and easily clean coolant sumps, waste oil pits or wells by removing chips, swarf, shavings and other solids out of used coolants and other liquids. It has the capability to do this with up to 15 feet of lift, or 20 feet of horizontal vacuum, which is farther and higher than the previous model.
How it works
The compressed air powered High Lift Chip Trapper vacuums the dirty liquid into the included drum, trapping all solids in a reusable filter bag. Then, by simply turning the flow valve, clean liquid pumps back out. Designed for continuous and heavy-duty applications, the unit is capable of moving high viscosity liquids up to 1,400 centipoise.
There are no motors or impellers to clog or wear out, ensuring maintenance-free operation. In addition, safe operation is assured with built-in pressure/vacuum relief and an automatic safety shutoff to prevent spills or overfilling.
The Model 6190 High Lift Chip Trapper is available in 30-, 55- and 110-gallon capacities. Each unit comes complete with a stainless steel two-way pump, directional flow valve, drum, lever lock drum lid, shutoff valve, 20-foot vacuum hose, 20-foot compressed air hose, chip wand, two filter bags and a drum dolly.
High Lift Chip Trappers, like all industrial vacuums from EXAIR, are CE compliant.
