Mid Series Venturi Vacuum Pump - VP1X / VP1X-ADJ

The integrated pneumatic high-speed blow off on the VP1X pump provides a fixed-duration blow-off, based on the volume of the housing. With the VP1X-ADJ adjustable vacuum pump, you can control the intensity of the blow-off using one fingertip adjustment knob. (Customer-supplied directional control valve with exhaust required). Only one compressed air line provides both vacuum and blow-off, with no electricity required.

  • Fast Response – compact, lightweight and installs close to vacuum point
  • Efficient – minimal air consumption
  • High productivity – rapid part release, cycle rates up to 900/min
  • Reliable – operates trouble-free, straight-through design, non-clogging
  • No moving parts to wear or clog, no flap valves to stick open
  • Automatically cleans vacuum lines, no maintenance, no downtime
