Mid Series Venturi Vacuum Pump - VP20 / VP20BV-MP

VP20-MP pumps have 4 vacuum ports that distribute vacuum equally to 4 locations with “Home-Run” plumbing. The streamlined design minimizes vacuum loss, maximizes vacuum flow and speeds cycle times for safe, efficient lifting operations. A 1.5" diameter glycerin filled vacuum gauge and silencer are standard. Options include an integrated solenoid valve for vacuum control with an optional M8 3-pin connection.

  • High performance – vacuum up to 28"Hg [948mbar]
  • High production – fast cycle times with shot to shot consistency
  • High flow – maintains strong holding force, overcomes leakage
  • Time saving – pre-designed, factory assembled, quick installation
  • Safe operation – no electricity needed at pump
  • Reliable – non-clogging, trouble-free operation
