Industrial Vacuums – All You Need to Know
Industrial vacuums are an important tool for the cleaning and maintaining of production machinery and job sites. They are widely used for the removal or relocation of solid and liquid materials, dust particles, and fumes in automated platforms, confined spaces, outdoor sites, and controlled environments, such as laboratories and cleanrooms. Vector Technologies is pleased to provide industrial vacuums easily tailored to suit the needs of individual applications, with a variety of options that incorporate modular engineering and customizable configurations.
Types of Industrial Vacuums
Due to the wide range of uses for industrial vacuums, a variety of designs have been produced to meet the needs of specific applications. For example, industrial vacuums may be mounted on trailers or skids, depending on the desired mobility and structural stability.
Trailer mounted industrial vacuums are particularly useful for outdoor utility work, as they can be easily relocated to the desired locale. Excavation of utility equipment involves the use of high pressure air or water to dig down to the desired location. Industrial vacuums are used to remove both wet and dry matter from utility sites to enhance the speed and efficiency of the unearthing process.
Industrial vacuums can be mounted on two or three axle trailers, depending on the size of the equipment. To ensure ease of use, trailers for industrial vacuums are available in a range of configurations, including pintle hook and gooseneck hitches as well as hydraulic jacking systems. Electric brakes are utilized for enhanced safety during transport.
Skid mounted industrial vacuums include Vector’s full line of VecLoader™ products, which are specially designed for use in harsh indoor and outdoor conditions found in shipyards, rail yards, mining operations, and industrial plants. All of Vector’s VecLoader skid mounted vacuum systems are easily integrated into larger baghouse configurations, for customized systems to meet the needs of any industry. VecLoader systems are available in diesel/gas or electric designs.
