Ideal as a flexible answer to scrap removal or hopper loading, a new device can create powerful inline conveying systems out of ordinary hoses. The air-operated 316SS Line Vac Conveyor system offers large throat diameters for maximum throughput. The unit ejects a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end and high output on the other. Controlling output is as simple as regulating the compressed-air pressure. The unit is constructed from stainless steel to resist corrosion, and it can withstand temperatures up to 400F. Five sizes ranging from .75- to 2-inch diameter are available, and prices start at $317.
