The new patented High Lift Chip Trapper from EXAIR extends coolant life
and eliminates the risk of waste oil solids damaging equipment, thereby increasing
operational efficiency and safety. The high lift chip trapper presents a fast
and easy way to clean coolant sumps, waste oil pits or wells by removing solids
such as chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids with
up to 4.5m (15′) of lift or 6m (20′) of horizontal vacuum.
Metal chips in a machine sump can block the intake of the coolant pump,
reducing coolant flow and causing heat-related damage to expensive parts and
tooling. However, regular cleaning of the coolant sump or waste oil pit with a high
lift chip trapper eliminates this problem as well as lost production and
Powered by compressed air, the high lift chip trapper vacuums the dirty
liquid into the supplied drum, trapping all the solids in a reusable filter
bag. A turn of the flow valve pumps the clean liquid back out. The simple
process doesn’t involve motors or impellers that could clog or wear out. Safe
operation is assured with built-in pressure/vacuum relief and an automatic
safety shutoff to prevent spills or overfilling.
Available from Compressed Air Australia, the Model 6190 high lift chip
trapper is available in 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities. Each system is
supplied with a stainless steel two-way pump, directional flow valve, drum,
lever lock drum lid, shutoff valve, 6m (20′) vacuum hose, 6m (20′) compressed
air hose, chip wand, two filter bags and a drum dolly.
EXAIR’s high lift chip trappers and industrial vacuums are CE compliant.
