In previous posts we introduced Twisted Willow’s Collector Pod and Suction Pod, two tools designed for the contractor/business using mid-sized commercial vacuum equipment. In this post we would like to introduce another companion tool to the previously mentioned tools that can operate alone or in a system with the other Twisted Willow vacuum tools.
The Twisted Willow Splitter is a simple tool that expands your system, allowing you and your crew to do more with your equipment and to be more productive. The splitter is essentially a wye (Y), a device used to divide one hose into two or more. What makes the Twisted Willow Splitter different is its size, weight and versatility. Unlike most wyes, the industrial vacuum hose Splitter has been designed and built as a chamber. We believe this design greatly reduces the chance of a blockage between the inlet ports and the outlet port. The chamber design also allows the Splitter to be compact, making it shorter than other wyes and easily stored when not in use.
Like our other vacuum tools, the Splitter comes standard with female NPT fittings. This makes it easy to adapt the couplers you choose to use. It is lightweight aluminum. All inlet ports are aimed directly at the outlet port allowing for a smooth and balanced transition. The Splitter can be used in-line or mounted directly to your machine at its inlet.
Possibly what makes the Splitter most unique is that it is “stackable”. The Twisted Willow Splitter has been designed to accept other Twisted Willow Splitters without interference between the Splitter bodies or hoses going into them. This allows a company of any size to quickly customize a setup for each individual job.
