EXAIR’s new Heavy Duty Dry Vac is a rugged, industrial duty vacuum cleaner that has been engineered to vacuum high volumes of dry materials in less time than ordinary vacs. The wear resistant design is suitable for the clean-up of abrasive materials like steel shot, garnet, metal chips, and sand, yet can be used for general purpose applications.

The Heavy Duty Dry Vac is compressed-air powered and attaches to the user supplied 55 gallon open-top drum. It is extremely quiet at 77 dBA (half the noise of electric vacs), making it suitable for a wide variety of applications. Surrounding air is kept clean by the 0.1 micron filter bag that traps particles when vacuuming dusty materials. There are no motors and impellers to clog or wear out. It is covered by a five year warranty. It comes complete with a lever lock drum lid, shutoff valve, reusable filter bag, 10-foot polyethylene static resistant hose, hose hanger, 20-foot compressed air hose with swivel fittings, pressure gauge and heavy duty aluminum chip wand. Deluxe systems add a drum dolly and heavy duty aluminum tools that include a two-piece double bend wand, floor tool, a small and large crevice tool, skimmer tool with detachable brush and a 3-½-inch-diameter dust brush with conductive bristles.
