VP90-300 & 350 Max Series Modular Venturi Vacuum Generator

VP90 Series Modular Venturi Vacuum Generators
The VP90-300 & 350 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.
Highly efficient, capable of reaching 28"Hg [948mbar], with flow rates up to 28 SCFM [793L/min], the VP90’s are also dirt tolerant. The standard FA-51 silencer also makes the VP90 Series whisper quiet. The Max Series generators (VP80 & VP90’s) use a non-removable press-fit venturi assembly.
