VP1X / VP1X-ADJ Mid Series Fastbreak Modular Venturi Vacuum Generator

VP1X-150H mid series pump with pneumatic blow-off and silencer
VP1X & VP1X-ADJ air-powered venturi vacuum generators are trusted for accurate part placement and rapid part release. The reliable Fastbreak Mid Series provides both vacuum and blow-off in one compact generator. Only one compressed air line provides both vacuum and blow-off, with no electricity required.
The integrated pneumatic high-speed blow off on the VP1X generator provides a fixed-duration blow-off, based on the volume of the housing. With the VP1X-ADJ adjustable vacuum generator, you can control the intensity of the blow-off using one fingertip adjustment knob. (Customer-supplied directional control valve with exhaust required).
For applications needing to control the duration of the blow-off, see the VP35 Series page.
For applications where you need a solenoid operated pump with a pneumatic blow-off, see the VP2XBV Series Page.
