Feature of the day

HOMERing VacsTM  are powerful air operated conveyors used to convey materials, parts, waste with no moving parts.  They operate on the venturi principle to create a large vacuum at the suction end.  These units can be used to convey scrap trip, plastic pellets, food products, bulk solids, textiles, paper, chips, pills and tablets, sawdust, small parts, granules as well as vent or move gases.

Nex FlowTM  Ring VacsTM  are compact and easy to install.   They are ideal for conveying material over long distances.  A small amount of compressed air is injected through specially designed and directed nozzles producing a high vacuum at one end and output flow at the other.  It can be instant on and off as required. The rate of material flow is easily controlled utilizing a pressure regulator.  Optional mounting brackets allow for easy mounting.  Ring VacsTM  are maintenance free with no moving parts and no electricity.

Specific applications include: hopper loading, material conveying, chip removal, tensioning fiber, trim removal, waste removal, part transfer, and filling operations.

Nex FlowTM  Ring VacTM  advantages are: compact, no moving parts, high throughput, no maintenance with throughput controlled by varying inlet pressure.  Sizes from 3/8” to 3” as a standard and larger sizes available on request.  Materials are anodized aluminum, hard anodized aluminum and stainless steel – both 304 and 316L.   Special materials such as Teflon, HDPE and others also available.

The actual conveying rate is affected by the size, mass, and geometry of the part that is to be conveyed.  Also affecting the rate is the height the material must be lifted, the horizontal distance to be taken and the number of bends in the pipe, hose or tube used.  Trained Nex FlowTM  personnel can assist in determining the best size and material needed for your particular application.

Some guidelines in material for Nex FlowTM  Ring VacsTM  are as follows:

Aluminum Ring VacsTM and Hard Anodized Ring VacsTM can be used up to temperatures of 275 degrees F (135 degrees C)

Stainless Steel (304 and 316L) Ring VacsTM      can be used up to temperatures of 400 degrees F (204 degrees C).

High Temperature Stainless Steel (304and 316L) Ring VacsTM can be used up to temperatures of 1200 degrees F (649 degrees C).

Nex FlowTM  Ring VacsTM  have been made in sizes up to 5 inches and using materials such as PVC and PTFE (Teflon).

Nex FlowTM  Ring VacsTM  can be clamped to a hose or tube or pipe.  They are also available with threaded connections to easily thread to standard pipe sizes.  Flanged versions are also available for special applications.  316L stainless steel units are available in sanitary flanged versions.

A hand held version of the Nex FlowTM  Ring VacTM  is the Nex FlowTM  Hand VacTM  which is similar to the 1-1/4” Ring VacTMThis rugged, die-cast aluminum acts a both a blow gun and vacuum for material transfer or collection.  It is lightweight and easy to use.    The Nex FlowTM  Hand VacTM  uses less compressed air than an ordinary blow gun and offers a much more efficient means to blow off, dry, clean an cool.  In vacuum mode the Nex FlowTM  Hand VacTM  easily cleans surfaces by vacuuming and is also a safer way to clean off equipment and personnel at the end of the day.  The Hand VacTM  is low cost, no moving parts, durable, safe, versatile and meets OSGA pressure requirements.   It can be easily changed from blow gun operation to vacuum In less than a minute.  Various attachments are provided such as a cleaning brush, collection bag, crevictool, skimmer tool, extension wands, and hose depending on the package you need.

Another Nex FlowTM product using the venture principle is the Blind Hole Cleaner to remove debris from deep holes.  Just blowing into deep holes can be hazardous as material can be thrown around into the air.  The Blind Hole Cleaner cleans the deep hole and collects all the material removed into a collection bag.  None of the material gets into the atmosphere and yet cleans a hole as deep as 20 inches and a wide as 1 inch.

The difference between venturi systems like the Nex FlowTM  Ring VacTM  and the Nex FlowTM  Air Amplifier  which utilizes the coanda effect is that the venturi system creates a very high vacuum and high output in the range of 5 to 6 times air amplification but, the coanda effect creates a smaller vacuum and much higher output up to 16 times.   There are advantages to each and a Nex FlowTM product specialist can assist you on which device is the best for your application.
