Portable AbVac Abrasive Recovery Unit

The AbVac Grit Recovery Unit is one of the most portable media recovery devices available anywhere in the world.

It is ideal for restricted spaces and for difficult-to-reach locations like bridges, water tanks, and gas towers.

The AbVac is entirely electric-powered and requires no compressed air and offers efficient airflow per HP. The high suction capacity, together with its flexible discharge system, makes the unit very useful in most grit recovery situations. The AbVac unit can access areas that would otherwise be inaccessible due to hose length. The unit is easily manoeuvred using a standard forklift or crane.

The AbVac can reclaim up to 5 tons of blast media per hour and works well with extended hose lengths. It also has low power requirements, making it simple and quiet to use.

Mounted onto a rigid stand with retractable legs, this unit is electric powered and is designed for the collection of dust and debris up to 2”in size. It deposits that debris either into a waste bag or into an abrasive storage hopper from which recovered abrasive can be reused.

The AbVac is mounted on to a rigid stand with retractable legs. The retractable legs allow the discharge outlet height to be adjusted for any size of waste bag. It is an enclosed recovery system, so operators can safely work without a mask or goggles.

An automatic discharge feature provides huge efficiency gains in a range of scenarios when manual emptying is impractical. Thanks to its portability, the AbVac can also be used as a free-standing suction unit with a 3” or 4” hose, or it can be connected to a fixed pipe system with multiple suction outlets.
