With any vacuum device, grit and dirt being sucked in will always adversely effect the performance. The Vac-Clamp design means that this is not a problem. By using the flow of air we turn suck into blow, simply by blocking off the exhaust port airflow.
|What will happen?
Blocking the airflow through the vacuum generator reverses the path of the air and this will swirl through the vacuum port and blow out the debris.
|Is this dangerous?
When doing this procedure, do not put your face over the top of the clamp. Although it is possible to use this feature to release the workpiece from the clamp, we do not recommend it.
