30-Gallon Chip Vac picks up chips and delivers them to an ordinary
30 gallon drum. It can be moved from drum to drum easily to keep
different materials separate for recycling. It is used to clean chips
from fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws,
mills and other industrial equipment.
compressed air powered Chip Vac creates a powerful direct flow action that
effectively moves metal, wood or plastic chips into the user's 30 gallon drum.
Dusty materials such as absorbents are trapped by the 0.1 micron filter
bag to keep the surrounding air clean. No motors to clog or wear out assures
