Vacuum The Air In Your Shop
Welding smoke, diesel smoke, grinding and just about everything else you do in your shop puts dust particles into the air that you’d probably be better off not breathing.
Wayne Hughes, owner of Air-Vac Systems, Cedar Falls, Iowa, can help keep your shop air clean. For 18 years, Hughes has been making and selling air cleaners to repair and body shops, factories, restaurants, bars and other places of work. He recently started selling to farmers for use in farm shops.
Air-Vac air cleaners are housed in a simple 16 gauge steel powder coated cabinets that measure 2 ft. square by 5 ft. long. An electric fan located at one end of the cabinet pulls the dirty air through two filter stages and exhausts the clean air back into the shop.
Air-Vac units use two types of filters. Air enters through a 4” thick pleated pre-filter and continues through an eight pocket 95% efficient bag type filter. The main filter need only be replaced once a year at a cost of $70. The pleated pre-filter sells for $12 and is replaced every month or two.
Installing the Air-Vac system is simple. Hughes says to mount it on a shelf or suspend it from the rafters using four chains. Air-Vac low maintenance air cleaners are equipped with a 10’ power cord which plugs into any 110 volt receptacle. The unit weighs 160 lbs. and is shipped complete with filters.
The model M-25 Air-Vac will clean the air in a 2,000 sq. ft. building and sells for $1,780. Simply add more units for larger sizes. This is important because the secret behind air cleaning equipment is having enough equipment to do the job.
Air-Vac Systems is offering a Special to all Farm Show readers. Regular price $1,780. The reader’s discount is $300 so the FARM SHOW price is $1,480.
Air-Vac Systems accept VISA, Mastercard, Discover and American Express or personal check.
