VAC-U-MAX is celebrating its 65-year anniversary by expanding the industrial vacuum cleaning product range with the new Model 1050, a continuous-duty industrial vacuum cleaning system designed to vacuum high-density materials such as steel shot, grit, foundry sand and other similar materials.
The Model 1050 vacuums up to 10,000 lbs (4,500 kg) per hour from distances up to 30 feet away. The system is designed for high volume recovery at local pick-up point areas such as debris under conveyor belts or in bucket elevator pits, as well as a "breakaway" central system for long-distance cleaning via piping networks for applications including cleaning mezzanines and hard-to-reach areas.
The heart of the Model 1050 is a positive-displacement rotary-lobe vacuum pump which is unlike any centrifugal vacuum producer.
The vacuum pump provides 50 percent more vacuum power with airflow that never diminishes for quick recovery of material from large piles and over long distances. Versatility of the Model 1050 allows use as a central vacuum system when connected and disconnected from permanent tubing networks or it can be operated as a portable vacuum cleaner.
The Model 1050 is easily rolled to any location including tight areas and uneven surfaces. The system features large 14" diameter (350mm) front wheels and 8" (150mm) dual swivel casters at the rear for ease of mobility. For longer distance transportation the Model 1050 features built-in forklift pockets.
The Model 1050 has a unique filter cleaning system that simultaneously vents the vacuum producer to the atmosphere providing 100 percent blow-back air for maximum filter cleaning. The high-efficiency static-conductive PTFE primary filter is 250 percent larger and less susceptible to filter binding, rated 99.9 percent efficient @ 1 micron with 50 square feet of surface area.
Material is collected in the interchangeable 40-Gallon (151.4 liter) collection drum. Many debris handling options are available including 55-Gallon drums when used with a material intercept which is ideal for limited-space applications.
For larger volumes of debris and extended vacuuming time, VAC-U-MAX offers a forkliftable 2-cubic yard bottom-discharge dump hopper. The heavy-duty reinforced bottom dump hopper has controlled debris discharge with 40 percent larger discharge opening compared to self-dumping hoppers.
