All-Pneumatic Pilot Controlled Venturi Vacuum Pumps

All-Pneumatic Pilot Controlled Venturi <br>Vacuum Pumps
The all pneumatic VP50 Series are air pilot controlled venturi vacuum pumps that feature an integral check valve and air pilot controlled blow-off for rapid part release or vacuum line clean out. Using air pilot control, VP50 Series pumps generate vacuum only when needed, minimizing compressed air consumption. The unique, compact design of the VP50 Series allows for easy integration close to the work area for faster response.
 
There are three versions of the VP50 Series available:
 
VP50 Air pilot vacuum control and blow-off
VP50-AS Integrated air saver circuit, for reduced air consumption and
pilot controlled blow-off
VP50-ASP Air pilot controlled vacuum with integrated air saver circuit, pilot controlled blow-off and pneumatic signal output for vacuum setpoint notification

Using air pilot control, VP50 Series pumps generate vacuum only when needed, minimizing compressed air consumption. The unique, compact design of the VP50 Series allows for easy integration close to the work area for faster response.
