Utilizing innovative and proven vacuum technology, the Tempest Industrial Air Mover from RAMVAC by Sewer Equipment is capable of removing dry and liquid materials over a long distance and from great depths. The debris box is 18 cubic yards, providing operators with the power and storage to get a job done quickly and efficiently.

Exclusive knuckleboom gets you where you need to go

Its hydraulically powered articulating extendable knuckleboom is exclusive in the vacuum equipment industry today. The knuckleboom offers the operator 4.5 feet of extension, providing them with a total of 16 feet of working length. The boom also has a 270-degree range of motion, allowing the air loader’s operator more freedom to move, getting all the spots that are needed. The boom hinges back and forth, providing maximum support of the vacuum tube for increased operator ergonomics as well as cleaning efficiency.

If you use the Tempest’s knuckleboom in conjunction with the Trident wireless remote, you can easily and safely operate the boom from a distance. The operator will avoid being put into dangerous situations or needing another person to complete air loader applications. 

Automatic filter system saves operators downtime

The Tempest air mover comes with an 18-cubic-yard debris box, along with a self-discharging, automatic filter system. The special filter housing incorporated in the tank guarantees perfect suction efficiency and extends the working life of the filter bags, while the cover with hydraulic opening and closing simplifies maintenance. The exclusive automatic system for discharging the dust from the filter housing into the tank maintains a continuous dust flow without having to interrupt suction. This allows the Tempest vacuum loader to provide automatic interval cleaning of the filter house during operation, lowering the amount of downtime associated with premature cleaning of the bag house before the debris box is full. This is an exclusive feature found only on the Tempest.

Powerful vacuum system

The Tempest is equipped with a 28 Hg, 5,500 cfm positive-displacement blower operating through an 8-inch system. In addition to being powerful, the system also offers decreased noise emissions, adding additional safety for its operators.

Easy off-loading of debris

When unloading the Tempest air machine, you only need to dump it once to empty the large debris box. The rear door fully opens and the box empties at a 50-degree dump angle and has a 50-inch clearance from the splash plate to the ground. This combination of features allows the operator to effectively empty the unit into roll-off containers or other dumping locations.
