Conair Group offers a new filter-drawer feature on its DuraLoad vacuum receivers, eliminating the need to remove the receiver lid to perform routine screen inspection and maintenance.
Instead, a slim module, which can be fitted between the lid and the body of the receiver, features a slide-out drawer holding the filter-screen disc. To check, clean or replace the filter, users open two twist clamps and pull out the drawer. No tools are required.
The filter drawer adds only 3.5 inches to the installed height of the DuraLoad, and is available on all diameters of the receiver.
“With most receivers, the entire lid needs to be lifted off the body in order to expose the filter,” said Ray Kelly, Conair's conveyor product manager. “It doesn't weigh much, but it does require two hands, and when the receiver is mounted on top of a molding machine, blender or dryer, it can be quite cumbersome. Several trips up and down a ladder can be needed to complete a relatively simple task. With the Conair filter-drawer, one person can do the job quickly and easily.”
Conair is based in Cranberry Township, Pa.
