Suctioning thick and creamy substances and coolants can be difficult and risky using traditional rotating vane vacuum pumps.
In order to satisfy this market demand, Vuototecnica has developed special suction units with siphon filters for suctioning water and liquid mixtures and fluids saturated with condensates.
These exceptional suction units combine the use of siphon filters with multi-stage venturi effect vacuum generators, and are therefore capable of retaining fluids and solid impurities while at the same time suctioning fluids saturated with steam or liquid condensates. All this while ensuring maximum energy savings without compromising on performance.
Vuototecnica’s suction units are available in different sizes and can be furnished with on board vacuum generators with various suction rates. They are exclusively powered by compressed air (4-6 bar) and can be used for any application in which the use of electrically powered vacuum sources is prohibited or impossible.
The vacuum level inside the Plexiglas container is automatically maintained by the pneumatic vacuum switch art. 12 02 30 (which can be integrated with the vacuum generator, based on the model). This vacuum switch controls the compressed air intake valve, which in turn controls the vacuum generator’s intake based on the minimum vacuum level set on the vacuum switch itself.
This Energy Saving (ES) system feature guarantees compressed air consumption levels that are based on the customer’s actual needs, or rather levels that correspond to the actual times for generating the required vacuum (in vacuum cups, for example).
Vuototecnica’s suction units are therefore perfect for vacuum cup clamping systems used for gripping uniform surfaces, such as glass, granite, marble and light alloys, as well as any applications in which significant amounts of coolant liquids are present.
The technical datasheets can be found in the online Vacuum Solutions catalogue, which is even available for the iPad.
