The VacBoss is the result of our customer’s demands for a truly industrial vac … one that would require less maintenance even when conveying large volumes of dusty, sticky products. VacBoss is the first vac able to withstand the rigorous conveying conditions of commercial bulk handling environments.

With nearly 100% filtering efficiency, the BlowerGard Filtration system increases blower life and protects your VacBoss investment over time. High volume operators no longer have to budget for annual or bi-annual blower rebuilds typically necessary with conventional vacs.

Available in self-powered diesel, electric, or tractor-powered PTO versions, there’s a VacBoss model right for you.

VacBoss Features

MicroTube™ filters capture abrasive and sticky dust before it enters the blower.

BlowerGard™ Filtration with MicroTube™ Filters and VibraShaker™ Cleaning System

BlowerGard™ Filtration is the first commercially available positive filtration system designed for high dust load applications. Using an array of MicroTube™ filters, BlowerGard™ blocks about 99.97% of the abrasive dust particles*. The exclusive VibraShaker™ cleans the MicroTube™ filters quickly and efficiently by shaking the dust off the filters and back into the bulk material.Benefits

  • Increases blower life due to nearly 100% filtering efficiency.
  • Convey a wide range of grains and dusty bulk materials, without abrasive wear to the blower.
  • Maintains more consistent conveying capacities over time because blower performance remains steady.
  • Decreases power requirements. Compared to vacs with comparable capacities, VacBoss™ is up to 35% more energy efficient!

RVI™ Reduced Velocity Inlet

VacBoss RVIReduces the incoming air velocity by up to 60%, decelerating the bulk material as it enters the receiving cone. Improves efficiency, reduces wear, and results in gentler bulk material handling.

The RVI™ is placed low on the VacBoss™ for increased performance, lower power requirements, reduced pipe wear, and easier pipe connection.

 

Airlock Truck™ Access System

VacBoss AirlockMaintaining proper airlock clearances is key to top performance of any pneumatic conveying system. Only VacBoss features the Airlock Truck – a rolling chassis attached directly to the airlock.

Experienced vac owners appreciate the utility of the Airlock Truck because it greatly improves access to the adjustable airlock tips, the most important and often overlooked maintenance point on vacs.

For service, the airlock rolls out from under the receiving cone on a track for quick and easy inspection. Adjust the airlock tips in minutes without a crane or heavy lifting.

Vacuum Breaker

VacBoss Vacuum Breaker

Interrupt conveying without shutting off the VacBoss™ or removing the nozzle from the bulk material.

Touch a lever to hydraulically actuate a valve that allows by-pass air into the system – breaking vacuum to the intake nozzle.

Great for loading trucks and a big timer saver.

 

 

Quiet-Pac Blower Inlet and Discharge Silencers

VacBoss quiet blowerDesigning effective noise reduction systems for conventional vacs is problematic. Small amounts of dust passing through the blower eventually plug the silencer’s packing material and render the silencer useless.

Since the VacBoss BlowerGard™ Filtration System virtually eliminates dust passing through the blower, installing effective and efficient silencers on a vac is now a reality.

The VacBoss Quiet-Pac system comprises newly designed, compact and efficient pressure and inlet silencers.

Access Platform
