VP80-AS / VP90-AS Max Series Venturi Vacuum Generator with Air Saver Technology

VP80-200-AS Series
Vaccon’s Max Series Venturi Vacuum Generators with Air Saver Technology are an all-pneumatic system designed to minimize compressed air usage in vacuum clamping and vessel evacuation applications. For pick and place applications handling non porous materials, the Air Saver Circuit will maintain a safe holding force, save compressed air and hold the part even if the compressed air supply is interrupted providing an extra level of safety when handling large loads.

For vessel evacuation applications such as wood and composite clamping, Air Saver generators maintain vacuum for long periods of time and only consume compressed air to overcome system leaks resulting in 90% air savings.

The system includes a venturi vacuum generator, vacuum check valve, air piloted air valve and all-pneumatic vacuum switch. The switch is adjustable from 0 to 28"Hg [948mbar] and the hysteresis is set at approximately 3"Hg [102mbar].
