1050 Continuous-Duty Industrial Vacuum Cleaner

Item #: MDL1050

The new Model 1050 is a continuous-duty industrial vacuum cleaning system designed to vacuum high-density materials such as steel shot, grit, cement, foundry sand and other similar materials. The Model 1050 vacuums up to 10,000 lbs (4,500 kg) per hour of materials such as Portland cement from distances up to 30 feet (9m) away. System is designed for high volume recovery at local pick-up point areas such as debris under conveyor belts or in bucket elevator pits, as well as a “breakaway” central system for long-distance cleaning via piping networks for applications including cleaning mezzanines and hard-to-reach areas.

The heart of the Model 1050 is a positive-displacement rotary-lobe vacuum pump which is unlike any centrifugal vacuum producer. The vacuum pump provides 50% more vacuum power with airflow that never diminishes for quick recovery of material from large piles and over long distances. Versatility of the Model 1050 allows use as a central vacuum system when connected and disconnected from permanent tubing networks or it can be operated as a portable vacuum cleaner. The Model 1050 is easily rolled to any location including tight areas and uneven surfaces. System features large 14” diameter (350mm) front wheels and 8” (150mm) dual swivel casters at the rear for ease of mobility. For longer distance transportation the Model 1050 features built-in forklift pockets.

Material is collected in the interchangeable 40-Gallon (151.4 liter) collection drum which features 4-inch diameter (100 mm) wheels. Many debris handling options are available including 55-Gallon drums when used with a material intercept which is ideal for limited-space applications. For larger volumes of debris and extended vacuuming time, VAC-U-MAX offers a forkliftable 2-cubic yard bottom-discharge dump hopper. The heavy-duty reinforced bottom dump hopper has controlled debris discharge with 40% larger discharge opening compared to self-dumping hoppers.

The Model 1050 has a unique filter cleaning system that simultaneously vents the vacuum producer to the atmosphere providing 100% blow-back air for maximum filter cleaning. The high-efficiency static-conductive PTFE primary filter is 250% larger and less susceptible to filter binding, rated 99.9% efficient @ 1 micron with 50 square feet of surface area. System does not need to be shut down in order to actuate the unique filter cleaning system. A DOP-tested secondary HEPA filter rated 99.97% @ 0.3 micron protects the vacuum producer from contamination and ensures breathable exhaust air. The Model 1050 does not require compressed air for filter cleaning.

Technical Data

The PTFE high-efficiency filter is rated at 99.9% efficiency @ 1 micron with 50 square feet of surface area. The unique vacuum vent valve simultaneously vents the vacuum producer to atmosphere and provides 100% blowback air for maximum filter cleaning effectiveness. The filter is cleaned without shutting off the vacuum. A HEPA secondary filter cartridge is rated 99.97% @ 0.3 micron and is located ahead of the pump. Unit features a flexible electrical cord, 3 conductor, (without plug) x 25’ lg. An interchangeable 40-gallon collection container (holding capacity 450lbs.) collects debris, with 4” diameter wheels and large 14” diameter front wheels allowing easy movement over uneven surfaces and expansion joints.
