Push-In Cartridges

Vacuum cartridges are a combination of interchangeable nozzles and diffusers that enable you to optimize performance based on desired vacuum level, vacuum flow, evacuation speed and air consumption. If the product changes (size, porosity, weight), refit the existing equipment with a different cartridge - simply swap the cartridge, or just the nozzle or diffuser. Ideally suited for machine designers, venturi cartridges easily fit into OEM cavities creating a proprietary vacuum source.

  • Saves space – eliminates need for an external pump, installs close to vacuum point
  • High Productivity – powerful vacuum up to 28"Hg [948mbar] with fast response time
  • Compact and lightweight – reduces overall equipment weight
  • Efficient – minimal air consumption, high performance
  • Performance Optimization – precise control of flow and vacuum level
  • Straight through design – no moving parts to wear out or clog, no maintenance

The model numbers for the Push-in Venturi Vacuum Cartridges consists of the model acronym (C) plus four alphanumeric clusters. These clusters designate the flow and vacuum levels, operating pressure, and cartridge material. Refer to the chart below for an example of model number C60H-PL-60. This is a plastic (nylon) cartridge with a maximum vacuum flow of 60, maximum vacuum level of 28"Hg [948mbar], and operating pressure of 60 PSI. The 2nd chart shows the color coding of the cartridges representing their maximum vacuum flow.
