New Option Expands Vac Capabilities
Guzzler Manufacturing has updated its classic industrial vacuum loader with an optional vane pump pressure offload system.
The option allows the Guzzler CL (Classic) to handle liquid waste and slurries in industrial cleaning environments such as materials processing plants, foundries, grain elevators, metal mining, steel and pulp and paper mills, railroads and shipyards.
The company also recommends the equipment for oil and gas applications, including removal of drilling mud, clean-up and recovery of raw material, oil sludge and water removal, frack tank cleaning and general tank cleaning.
The product can pressurize the debris body at a maximum of 14.5 psi for offloading liquids and sludges, according to product manager Ben Schmitt.
Schmitt said the vane pump could also be reversed to create a vacuum "of up to 28.5-in. Hg for vacuum loading of liquids and slurries that otherwise could not be loaded with an air mover."
Depending on the material type, the industrial vacuum loader can operate in remote or inaccessible locations more than 1,000 feet away, according to the company.
Guzzler Manufacturing, located in Streator, IL, is a subsidiary of Federal Signal Corporation's Environmental Solutions Group.
