VP8X & VP8X-ADJ / VP8XBV & VP8XBV-ADJ Max Series Fastbreak Venturi Vacuum Generator

VP8X Series modular venturi vacuum pumps with pneumatic blow-off
VP8X & VP8X-ADJ and VP8XBV & VP8XBV-ADJ air-powered venturi vacuum generators are trusted for accurate part placement and rapid part release. The reliable Fastbreak Max Series provides both vacuum and blow-off in one generator, using only one compressed air line. No electricity required.
The integrated pneumatic high-speed blow-off on the VP8X and VP8XBV generators provide a fixed-duration blow-off, based on the volume of the housing. With the VP8X-ADJ and VP8XBV-ADJ adjustable vacuum generators, you can control the intensity of the blow-off using one fingertip adjustment knob. (Non-BV versions require customer-supplied directional control valve with exhaust.) The VP8XBV generators offer an integrated valve for increased production cycles.
VP8XBV and VP8XBV-ADJ generators offer an optional 2-way integrated valve.
