A new drum cover made from breathable material makes for a cleaner and safer work environment on air-operated conveyors.

Exair's latest drum cover is fabricated from a fine mesh non-woven material that is designed for use on 205 litre or 60 litre drums.

It allows air from an Exair Line Vac air-operated conveyos to circulate whether material is moving in or out of a drum.

Suitable for conveyance hoses from 19mm up through a 86.4mm outside diameter, the drum cover prevents contamination of material and is a simple solution when transferring scrap, trim, waste, parts, chips or pellets into containment vessels.

Line Vac conveyors and Exair drum covers are distributed by Compressed Air Australia.
