Pneumatic Vacuum Accessory

November 15, 2013

Camfil AOC Clean Sweep Vacuum AccessoryA new "Clean Sweep" pneumatic vacuum accessory from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) provides an economical clean-up solution by adding a high-vacuum wand to a low-vacuum dust collector such as the Farr Gold Series® cartridge collector. The Clean Sweep unit removes fugitive dust from around the dust collector and adjacent work area and sends it directly to the collector. The Clean Sweep uses a pneumatic vacuum pump that draws the dust into the collector through a vacuum hose system. The pump is powered by the same compressed air line that cleans the dust collector filters, so no extra electricity is required. It will create a vacuum of up to 40" w.g. at 90 psig compressed air. Dust enters the collector inlet before the channel baffles so that large particles will not contact the filter media. Shut-off valves ensure that the Clean Sweep system is isolated from the collector when not in use and that the vacuum pump delivers compressed air only when the system is in operation.
