Stationary Vacuum Systems
Stationary vacuum systems are heavy vacuum systems built as permanent fixtures. They are automated and can run up to 24 hours a day.
Stationary vacuum systems may serve a wide variety of applications, including: spill cleanup (including explosive dust spills), material recovery, plant cleanup, batching, vacuum conveying, continuous discharging, pressure loading and unloading, pneumatic conveying and industrial vacuuming.
The type of stationary vacuum system a manufacturer will build for you depends on your application specifications, most notably the materials you need it to gather. Some of the materials that stationary vacuum systems most commonly consume are dusts, such as sawdust, explosive dust and hazardous dust like asbestos dust. They also deal with materials like: metal waste (ex. iron chips), blasting media, plastic resin, organic fibers, insulation, gravel and free flowing media like cement slurries.
Manufacturers design stationary vacuum systems with a wide variety of features, per your requirements. Many, for example, come equipped with hoppers, which serve as the place gathered materials can be collected and then sent on for reuse or another application. To reuse or recycle said materials, these vacuum systems often also feature components like system separators and cleaning tools. Other vacuum systems feature load cells that weigh the materials they have collected. Still others feature belts for conveying materials through a central vacuum system. Some even come with a special high temperature resistant construction. In addition, many feature inlets where users may attach nozzles and hoses for focuses cleaning.
Stationary vacuum systems offer their users a wide variety of advantages. First, they quite versatile. Second, they take several cleaning tasks and roll them into one. Third, they are less labor-intensive and cumbersome than portable vacuum systems. In addition, they are powerful; they’re usually available powers up to 30 HP. Also, they are the perfect way to meet EPA requirements. Finally, because they can run 24/7 and require little to no operator assistance, they are incredibly efficient. They are an investment, but in the long run, they will save you quite a bit of money.
