Mid Series Venturi Vacuum Pump - VP2X / VP2X-ADJ

Fastbreak Mid Series provides both vacuum and blow-off in one pump, using only one compressed air line -- no electricity required. The integrated pneumatic high-speed blow-off on the VP2X pump provides a fixed-duration blow-off, based on the volume of the housing. With the VP2X-ADJ adjustable vacuum pump, you can control the intensity of the blow-off using one fingertip adjustment knob.

  • Fast Response – compact, lightweight and installs close to vacuum point
  • Efficient – minimal air consumption, 
  • Reliable – operates trouble-free: straight-through design, non-clogging
  • Automatically cleans vacuum lines, no maintenance or downtime
  • Modular design – add sensors & solenoid valves for a complete vacuum system
  • Reliable part detection – factory installed miniature vacuum switches or sensors

The model number for the VP2X Series Venturi Vacuum Pumps consists of the base model acronym* (VP2X, VP2XBV or VP2XBVM8) plus six alphanumeric clusters. These clusters designate the maximum flow and vacuum levels, operating pressure, blow-off adjustment switch option, silencer, and switch or sensor options. Refer to the chart below for an example of model number VP2X-60H-ADJ-ST2-VSMP-QD-6. This is a VP2X pump with a maximum vacuum flow of 60, maximum vacuum level of 28"Hg [948mbar], operating pressure of 80 PSI, (optional) blow-off adjustment switch, ST4 silencer and a VSMP vacuum switch with 6" pigtail quick disconnect. Note, part numbers beginning with I- denote a model with G port metric threads.

Base model options:

VP2X indicates the base model
VP2XBV includes an optional integrated solenoid valve with flying leads
VP2XBVM8 includes the optional integrated valve with M8 connector
