VP80-200 / VP80BV-200 Max Series Modular Venturi Vacuum Generator

VP80-200 Modular Venturi Vacuum Generator
The VP80-200 and VP80BV-200 Max Series air-powered venturi vacuum generators provide high vacuum flow rates for the rapid evacuation of large volumes of air or for overcoming leakage in order to sustain high vacuum levels while handling porous materials. The VP80BV-200 Max Series generators offer an integrated valve for increased production cycles.
Highly efficient, capable of reaching 28"Hg [948mbar], the VP80’s are also dirt tolerant and include a straight-through silencer for quiet operation. Unlike the Mid Series which use interchangeable cartridge assemblies, the Max Series (VP80 & VP90’s) use a non-removable press-fit venturi assembly. Similar to the VP20 series, the VP80-200 offer an optional integrated solenoid valve for vacuum control and increased production cycles.
