The Mini-VecLoader is completely self-contained, meaning it can vacuum and directly discharge wet or dry product into a truck, dumpster or other collection device, without complicated setup and with only minimal maintenance. VecLoader’s remain on the job full time without the dumping, shoveling, hoisting, and other multiple handling generally required with vac trucks or other vacuum systems.
The VecLoader is a versatile truck-mounted industrial vacuum loader that never needs to be removed from the vacuuming site for dumping. It can be used for vacuuming coal, ash, dirt, dust, sand, stone, water and slurry utilising a four-inch diameter hose or multiple smaller diameter hoses.
Conventional Vacuum trucks have limitations, whereby they combine a vacuum pump, baghouse/filtration and storage together on a single truck body. As a conventional vacuum truck is filled, it must be taken off site to be emptied, or it contents dumped into a pile for re-handling prior to disposal. With many collected materials, a fully loaded truck often weighs in excess of its rated capacity.
The VecLoader Vacuum concept represents a unique approach to high performance industrial vacuuming.
VecLoaders do not have to be removed for emptying. Therefore, they can stay on the job full time without the shoveling, hoisting, dumping, and other multiple handling steps required with a vacuum truck or other vacuum systems. Our VecLoader is completely self-contained so it can vacuum and directly discharges wet or dry materials into a bulk bag, dump truck, dumpster, hopper or other collection device.
The VecLoader design also can also be utilised to return spilled material directly onto conveyors or into varied processing systems.
The VecLoader advantage is that unlike the conventional vacuum truck, VecLoader storage is not integrated into the system.
VecLoader “storage” is the aforementioned dump truck, dumpster, open-top hopper or other collection device.
Vacuumed materials are evacuated from the VecLoader on a variable timed basis, set by the user. The VecLoader’s dump timer creates a vacuum break with collected material automatically discharged from the baghouse on a preselected cycle. Dump times are established at machine set-up and are easily changed based the material being collected. On most flowable products, the dump cycle is very short, often in the 10 second range.
Our VecLoader features a gravity dump door, which opens at vacuum break as controlled by the aforementioned dump timer. For most applications users determine that continuous vacuuming is not beneficial. Generally, a 10 second break every 10 minutes in not critical to the process, especially since the worker often cannot keep up with the capability of the vacuum. However, where continuous vacuuming is beneficial to the collection process, double dump valves, rotary valves and intermediate separators are available.
