Industrial central vacuum systems are used every day to remove various waste materials (liquid or solid) from manufacturing processes, keeping workspaces clean and safe. As with other pneumatic conveying systems, they will only function well if designed properly.

In partnership with American Vacuum Company, we follow a specific design process to make sure you have enough air and suction power to get the job done.

Understand the Application

Before designing a system, it’s critical to understand what the system needs to do and how it will be used. Look at the plant size and its operational requirements, the type of material collected, how many people will use the system simultaneously, and how much material needs to be moved over a specific period of time.

Also take note of any system and space constraints and whether the installation should be indoor or outdoor.

Select System Components

Common components of an industrial central vacuum system include a vacuum producer, motor, filter, baghouse, waste bin, vacuum hose, and a tube manifold system that is piped throughout the desired work area. To select the right components, you need to know the type, amount, and weight of material being moved and if it is combustible; the number of vacuum drops; and the distance from the vacuum location to the furthest drop.

With this information in hand, you can correctly size the vacuum producer and design the tube system with the correct line sizes, tube material and thickness, and the method of joining tube to fittings.

Finalize Accessory Items

Accessory components should always be considered when designing the best central vacuum system, and these will be determined by the plant’s infrastructure, environment, and any government regulations.

Common accessories involve electrical controls, noise abatement, equipment monitoring, and explosion and fire suppression.
