Central Vacuum Systems
We'll Help You Design A Central Vacuum System That Is Right For You
A complete system consists of a pickup point, tubing network, separating stage, vacuum producer(s), final filters and accessories. The room air rushing into a cleaning tool carries nearby solids or liquids through the system, where they are separated and collected by various types of separators for bulk materials, liquids and gas. Powerful vacuum producers build and sustain high negative pressure to maintain smooth airflow and even conveyance of collected materials.
With systems available to handle solid materials from steel balls to machine-side dust, water to kerosene. How do you go about determining a system that is right for you? It's easy - just talk to one of our technical application engineers and they'll help you plan and design the right-size system with the functional requirements your application demands.
System Design Considerations
At EAS we are often considered an extension of companies engineering departments, a fact that we pride ourselves on. We believe this team approach offers the only way to effectively design and provide a system to meet your exact requirements to ensure the system becomes and integral and essential tool for your facility.
Here's how we start to properly design a vacuum cleaning system.
Number Of Operators
What is the maximum number of simultaneous operators? This is the single most important factor to consider at the design stage. This almost completely controls the volume requirements, tubing size, separator and vacuum producer size.
Particle size, bulk density, volume of material
Is the material abrasive, corrosive, volatile, toxic?
Is it wet or dry? Does it clump together?
Diameter of the hose is determined by the collection rate required and the size best handled by the operators.
Length - we help locate the inlet valves to provide the most practical length of hose.
Type of tools required: gulper for bulk materials, wall and pipe brushes, squeegee for liquids?
There are a variety of tubing network layouts possible that will fit into your facility. Our experience sets us apart when we design a tubing network. Our ability to determine the optimum configuration reduces the initial cost of the tubing network, provides an equal distribution of operators, maintains proper conveying rates, minimizes wear and saves on installation costs.
From here we, along with the engineering support and experience of The Spencer Turbine Company select the appropriate vacuum equipment that meets these requirements for separator storage capacity, type of emptying system, filtration efficiency, vacuum producer sizing and a myriad of other considerations.
