Industrial Vacuum Equipment Corporation has been setting the quality standard since 1992 manufacturing our Hurricane line of Industrial Vacuum loaders and dust collection equipment. These machines were engineered for a variety of industries including abrasive blast recovery, roof rock removal, asbestos, hazardous waste removal, steel mills, and shipyards.
Trailer Mounted Industrial Vacuums
When it comes to trailer mounted vacuums, versatility is the best keyword used to describe the Hurricane Series. What makes the Hurricane trailer mounted vacuum so versatile is the automatic or manual discharge of material into any dump truck, dumpster, container or bag up to 11 feet high. Increased power and output of more than 35% bridges the gap between truck and trailer mounted vacuum loaders without sacrificing the compact design, maneuverability and lower costs unique to trailer mounted units.
The Hurricane 500 is a versatile 170 hp diesel or electric trailer mounted vacuum. This is one of the best selling models due to its compact yet powerful performance servicing industries such Sandblasting / Painting, Ship Cleaning, Foundries, Factories, Mining, Blast Recovery, and Waster Treatment.
Bigger is better! The 755 creates 3600 CFM and 27 in. of Hg. All the power you need to perform the toughest of projects. This is one of the more popular models due to its powerful performance servicing industries such Sandblasting / Painting, Ship Cleaning, Foundries, Factories, Mining, Blast Recovery, and Waster Treatment.
How Does A Hurricane Work?
The Hurricane Vacuum works different than your household vacuum that commonly uses a bag to collect vacuumed debris.
The 3-Stage Filtration System
Stage 1: The vacuumed material is pulled through the vacuum line by the air that is drawn through the vacuum pump. This air pulls the material toward the vacuum and then enters the cyclone separator/baghouse. The material decelerates as it enters and spins around in a cyclonic motion. This is called cyclonic separation.
Stage 2: The heavier material falls into the collection cone waiting to be manually or automatically discharged. The dust carried with the air stream that moves upward toward the 37 pre-filter bags.
Stage 3: The air passes through the filters leaving the dust on the dirty side of the bag. The dust is than blasted off the filter by our reverse pulse filter cleaning system. This dust falls into the collection cone after it is knocked off the filters. The clean air that passes through the filter bags goes through a hose down to blower safety filter.
This final stage of filtering catches any minute particles that may have slipped through the filter bags (Stage 2). After the air passes through the blower safety filter the air goes through the blower and then is discharged through an exhaust silencer. This exhausted air is then exhausted to atmosphere scrubbed clean of dust and contaminates.
