VP00 Min Series Modular Venturi Vacuum Generator

Vaccon VP00 Modular Venturi Vacuum Generator
The VP00 Min Series air-powered venturi vacuum generators are highly efficient, capable of reaching 28"Hg [948mbar], and dirt tolerant. The VP00s use minimal compressed air and include a silencer for quiet operation. Lightweight and compact, they easily mount close to the vacuum point for fast response.  
Designed for point-of-use installation: the VP00 Series vacuum generators offer a high vacuum venturi in several compact, lightweight configurations that are ideal for small part pick and place applications. Other common applications include fast evacuation of small vessels for purging operations and water/air analyzers. These compact generators require little installation space and can be positioned close to the vacuum point for fast response.
