Max Series Venturi Vacuum Pump - VP8X / VP8X-ADJ

The reliable Fastbreak Max Series provides both vacuum and blow-off in one pump, using only one compressed air line. No electricity required. With the VP8X-ADJ and VP8XBV-ADJ adjustable vacuum pumps, you can control the intensity of the blow-off using one fingertip adjustment knob. The VP8XBV pumps offer an integrated valve for increased production cycles.

  • Fast Response – compact, lightweight and installs close to vacuum point
  • High productivity – rapid part release, cycle rates up to 900/min
  • Efficient – minimal air consumption, 
  • Reliable – operates trouble-free: straight-through design, non-clogging
  • Automatically cleans vacuum lines, no maintenance or downtime
  • Reliable part detection – factory installed miniature vacuum switches or sensors

The model number for the VP8X Series Venturi Vacuum Pumps consists of the base model acronym* (VP8X-200, VP2XBV-200 or VP2XBVM8-200) plus four alphanumeric clusters. These clusters designate the vacuum level, operating pressure, blow-off adjustment switch option, silencer Refer to the chart below for an example of model number VP8X-200H-60-ADJ-ST6A. This is a VP8X-200 pump (maximum flow of 200) with a maximum vacuum level of 28"Hg [948mbar], operating pressure of 60 PSI, (optional) blow-off adjustment switch, and ST6A silencer. Note, part numbers beginning with I- denote a model with G port metric threads.

Base model options:

VP8X indicates the base model
VP8XBV includes an optional integrated solenoid valve with flying leads
VP8XBVM8 includes the optional integrated valve with M8 connector
