The Munkebo abrasive vacuum recovery system is electrically powered and designed to substantially reduce abrasive retrieval and site cleaning costs. The units are driven by a high powered induction electric motor coupled to a heavy duty vacuum pump. The cyclone filter section is fitted with safety relief valve and automatically sequenced reverse pulse jet filter system. Only clean air is vented to atmosphere and the separated dust is accumulated in the waste bin for easy removal. Various sizes of Munkebo systems are available to suit site conditions, abrasive types and different recovery rates.
