Pneumax-Technology for vacuum applications

Overall dimensions and technical information are provided solely for informative purposes and may be modified without notice. Vacuum generators of the pneumatic type operate on the Venturi principle: one or more nozzles are fed by compressed air, generating a jet of air that drags (in contact with the environment) the surrounding air and then evacuates. This "dragging" creates a depression which results in generation of a vacuum. The big advantage of pneumatic pumps is that they can operate only when the suction cups connected to them require vacuum. 2 1 3 1 2 3 1) Consumption of air (and therefore power) limited tomoments of use. 2) Installation directly proximate to the suction cups (simplification of layout / savings). 3) Short response times and high capacity. 4) Flow rates for any requirement. 5) No limit to applications. 6) Compactness / lightness / reliability / little or no wear. General details Advantages: Types: Range: In terms of dimensions, functions and operation, we can categorise generators as one of twomajor types: 1) Single stage, compact and/or miniaturised, with pneumatic or electropneumatic control, for direct-contact installation with suction cup holders and suction cups. 2) Multistage with or without integrated functions, with pneumatic or electropneumatic control, for de-localised assembly and for controlling groups of suction cups. The PNEUMAX range consists of single-stage and multistage equipment of various sizes and types; the single-stage generators use the Venturi effect in a single medium/high throughput nozzle and promptly generate vacuum, flow rate and suction values that are suitable for medium/light applications. Multistage generators havingmore than one nozzle (ejectors) in a line, using the kinetic energy that this layout generates to ensure, based on the flow rate, limited consumption of energy and attainment of a vacuum level equal to 90%, with various suction capabilities. Single-stage generators, very fast in switching pressure/vacuum, can also be equipped with a quick-release system for highly cyclical applications. Multistage generators can often be accessorised with integrated management and control functions, such as for example electropneumatic control for power supply and power shut-off, quick-release blowing, a regulator to measure this release, and a vacuum switch to control the degree of vacuum generated. These latter generators can be installed as modules as well, creating actual stand-alone modules for decentralised vacuum generation and management for controllingmore than one gripping element.
