VP35 Mid Series Venturi Vacuum Generator with Solenoid Operated Vacuum and Blow-off

VP35 Mid Series Venturi Vacuum Generator with Solenoid Operated Vacuum and Blow-off
VP35 Mid Series are solenoid-controlled venturi vacuum generators that feature a second solenoid to control blow-off air for rapid part release. VP35 generators generate vacuum only when needed, minimizing compressed air consumption.
Our interchangeable venturi cartridge system allows design flexibility. Choosing from 11 different venturi cartridges, designers can optimize performance to meet their needs.
Lightweight and compact, VP35 generators are placed at the point of use to eliminate plumbing between components and to ensure high cycle rates for increased productivity. Dirt tolerant, vacuum filters are not required. Push-to-connect air supply and vacuum lines save space and assembly time.

Features & Benefits
  • Precise control – individual electrical connections let you control the vacuum and the blow-off duration time
  • Fast response – no delay due to long plumbing lines; installs close to vacuum point
  • Instantaneous vacuum as needed – minimal air consumption
  • High productivity – rapid part release, cycle rates up to 2700/min
  • Easy installation – modular design speeds installation and minimizes assembly
  • Accurate part positioning from positive vacuum and rapid blow-off
  • Reliable – operates trouble-free:
    • Straight-through design, non-clogging
    • No flap valves to stick open
    • Automatically cleans vacuum lines
    • No maintenance, no downtime
