AutoVac filter separators are engineered and manufactured under exacting production standards to provide superior filtration. Each filter separator combines centrifugal action with the dust-trapping feature of stocking-type filter bags. As your vacuum producer creates suction it pulls air, dirt and debris from the end user’s nozzle, through the vacuum hose, and into the lower half of the filter separator. Here, a precisely engineered cone creates a powerful cyclone that guides debris downward into a waste container. The air then passes through a series of filter bags contained in the upper portion of the filter separator. A properly sized filter separator with appropriate filter bags will collect 99.9% of debris at three microns ...
AutoVac’s Hopper Separators are the ultimate filtration devices for large central vacuum systems. They effectively separate high volumes of debris from your system’s airflow and deposit waste into convenient portable drums. Our hopper separators are available in several sizes and can be equipped as Primary Separators or Pulse Jet Separators depending on your application.
Island Pal Separators bring the benefits of AutoVac’s filter separators to the point of use. The Island Pal combines centrifugal action with the dust-trapping feature of stocking-type filter bags. The vacuum producer creates suction which pulls air, dirt and debris from the end user’s nozzle, through the vacuum hose and into the lower portion of the filter separator. Here, a specially designed cone guides debris downward into a waste container. The air then passes through a series of filter bags contained in the upper portion of the filter separator. A properly sized separator with appropriate filter bags will collect 99.9% at three microns – allowing only clean dry air to pass through the piping system and vacuum producer. This ensures ...
AutoVac’s Primary Separator – your central vacuum system’s first line of defense in filtration. “Dirty” air is pulled through vacuum hoses and piping, and then directly into the primary separator. Waste and debris pass around a precisely engineered baffle and then drop out of the airstream through centrifugal action. Debris drops into a waste container while air and any remaining particles move on to the filter separator(see Filter Separator page). Primary separators are compatible with most central vacuum systems and are strongly recommended for systems with heavy airflow and/or underground piping.
Compact cyclonic separators can be added to central vacuum systems – typically at the point of use. These individual primary separators capture dirt and debris before air enters piping. This allows for easy recovery of items accidentally vacuumed. Each separator generally serves up to two hoses. Individual cyclonic separators are popular in self-serve central vacuum systems where customers are vacuuming their own cars. Items can be retrieved easily from the vacuum station itself (as opposed to attempting to find it in the equipment room). Separators are mounted directly to the piping support structure and collection bins can be freestanding or mounted as well.
AutoVac can engineer custom separators and filtration systems to meet your exact application. Whether it's a simple size modification to accommodate limited workspace, or complex ground-up design and development, AutoVac can help.
We address the material being conveyed, maintenance convenience and safety concerns. Separators can be designed to handle difficult toxic materials, oversized debris, even precious metals (for material recovery). We utilize a variety of options and accessories including pneumatic valve timers, automated filter bag shakers, explosion relief valves, particulate sensors, grounding systems and more.
AutoVac’s Barrel Top Separator is a convenient cyclonic
unit that can be added to a central vacuum system at one,
or several, points of use. Whether you need to capture
valuable byproducts to be recycled or prevent abrasive
materials from entering the main vacuum system, our Barrel
Top Separator is the answer. These portable units are
ideally suited for machine shops that handle various
materials as well as wet extraction applications.
Our Barrel Top Separator becomes the first line of filtration.
Through cyclonic action, particles and debris are removed
from the airstream and deposited into the collection drum.
Material is captured and collected at the source, rather than
entering the main vacuum system. The unit can ...
