RTM Series Threaded Cartridges

RTM Series threaded cartridge replace multi-stage versions
Ideally suited for use in dusty and dirty environments, RTM Series™ cartridges replace failed or clogged multi-stage pumps, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity. Unlike multi-stage cartridges, Vaccon's single-stage cartridges allow dirt, dust and debris to pass through the pump without clogging. RTM cartridges thread directly into existing multi-stage vacuum pumps and vacuum grippers for immediate, reliable, trouble-free operations.
Vaccon's RTM Series is directly interchangeable with multi-stage cartridges, eliminating the need to retool existing production equipment. Simply remove the threaded multi-stage cartridge and screw-in the Vaccon RTM single‑stage replacement. Vaccon RTM high performance Mid Series cartridges operate continuously without maintenance, the need for costly filters or cup screens, eliminating downtime, increasing productivity and improving profitability.
