Sandblast Removal
Industrial Vacuum

The project highlighted here was designed and fabricated for the specific requirements of a foundry application, which include the vacuuming of sandblasting media. This customer was already an owner of a DEMARCO® Vacuum XR50D John Deere Diesel powered model, which they purchased in 1997, and they wanted to add an additional system to help with their growing demand.

Fabrication employed a wide range of precision manufacturing processes, all available in-house at DeMarco's fabrication facility. Overall unit measurements were 8'-5 7/8" in length, 10'-3/4" in height and 6'-5 3/8" in width. Fully portable, it vacuums at a rate of approximately 6 tons per hour, and can vacuum at a distance of over 200'. Exhaustive functional and dimensional testings were carried out to verify operational integrity. The system was completed after a turnaround time of 10 weeks.

DeMarco Industrial Vacuum Corporation is the leading manufacturer of elite vacuum systems, capable of handling the most demanding severe duty industrial applications.
