Min Series Venturi Vacuum Pump - VP01BV

VP01BV Min Series pumps are solenoid-controlled miniature venturi vacuum pumps that generate vacuum only when needed, minimizing compressed air consumption. The integral solenoid valve provides instantaneous response for high speed assembly and pick & place applications.

  • High productivity – Cycle rates up to 4800/min for fast part release
  • Minimal air consumption – provides instantaneous vacuum as needed
  • Reliable part detection – factory-installed miniature vacuum switches or sensors
  • Fast Response – installs close to vacuum point – no delay due to long plumbing lines
  • Easy installation – modular design speeds installation and minimizes assembly
  • Reliable – operates trouble-free, straight-through design, non-clogging

The model number for the VP01BV Venturi Vacuum Pumps consists of the model acronym (VP01BV or VP01BVM8) plus five alphanumeric clusters. These clusters designate the flow and vacuum levels, operating pressure, switch or sensor options and silencer. Refer to the chart below for an example of model number VP01BV-60H-60-EP-ST2-VTMV-QD-6. This is a VP01BV pump with a maximum vacuum flow of 60, maximum vacuum level of 28"Hg [948mbar], operating pressure of 60PSI and a VTMV vacuum switch with 6" pigtail quick disconnect. Notes: 

  • Part numbers beginning with I- denote a model with G port metric threads
  • Models including M8 in the base model number (VP01BVM8-60) indicates an optional M8 connector for the integrated solenoid valve
