Different Types Of Industrial Vacuum Systems To Choose From


Industrial vacuum systems are very much like any other type of vacuum pump, only they are incredibly large so they can be strong enough to meet the needs of a large factory, plant or lab. This article will discuss a few of the more popular types so you have a better idea of what to look for in the perfect unit for you.

First, we will discuss the central industrial vacuum systems since they are the ones most commonly found. You have several different types to choose from such as centrifugal, displacement producers, pulsed jet types, and bag house filters. Once you get to know a bit about what is available, you simply find the one that best meets the application you intend for it. If you are not certain about what type of machine you need, you may want to contact a manufacturer or dealer and ask them for some advice.

One of the most used industrial vacuum systems is the Multi-operator type. These are best for when you have several different operators per hose and desire tools that are less than 2.5 inches. They are best known for their design flexibility, largely due to the fact that they feature modular components. Another option that you may be interested in is the Material Loading type. This is the perfect choice for you if you have to normally move large amounts of materials. Unlike the multi-operator type, the tools used are always greater than 2.5 inches. The components can also be used for pneumatic conveying.

There are also all in one units, also known as platforms, that offer fast installation and additional storage. You have the option of choosing centrifugal, regenerative, or positive displacement vacuum producers. If your factory or lab has special needs, then you may want to look into Special Application industrial vacuum systems. You can expect the following from these helpful pieces of equipment:

• Liquid pick up

• Conveying of hot material

• Compact fiber and fluff

• Can handle explosive material

• The components are resistant to abrasion

Also keep in mind that there are portable industrial vacuum systems for when you are on the go. These are offered in a wide range of shapes and sizes so no matter what the application, you can find the right one for you. They come in different strengths from 3hp to 75hp and have been designed to work on a continuous basis. They will typically offer built in HEPA filtration which can take care of very fine powders without having any trouble. The size that you will need will depend on the type of application you need it for. The smallest is suitable for tools such as floor sanders and concrete grinders, while the largest are suitable for moving large amounts of materials quickly.
