Adjustable Vacuum Generator
A simple turn can increase or decrease vacuum and flow!
What is The Adjustable E-Vac?
EXAIR's Adjustable E-Vac is a series of low cost, compressed air powered vacuum generators where the vacuum and flow rates can be easily adjusted to suit the application requirements. These vacuum pumps are ideal for a wide variety of pick and place, box opening, clamping, lifting, chucking, and surface mounting applications. They are Maintenance Free and have No Moving Parts to wear out.
Why The Adjustable E-Vac?
Engineered for high efficiency, the Adjustable E-Vac minimizes the compressed air use by allowing it to be tuned to application. With simple turn of the unit, the vacuum and flow levels can be changed to overcome porosity and increase or decrease the lifting power. The straight-through, single stage aluminum construction requires no vacuum filter and simply passes contaminants from dirty environments through the unit so there is no clongging or loss of suction.
Adjustable E-Vac is available in 4 sizes that have adjustable vacuum rates up to 25" Hg (85 kPa) and flow rates up to 81 SCFM (2,294 SLPM).
How The Adjstable E-Vac Works?
Compressed air flows through the inlet (1), then through a single directed nozzle (2). As the airstream exhausts, it expands and increases in velocity prior to passing through the venturi (3). A vacuum inlet tangential to the primary airflow (4) is located at the suction point between the orifice and the venturi. The airflow that is drawn through the vacuum inlet mixes with the primary airstream, then exhausts on the opposite end (5).
The amount of vacuum flow can be adjusted. When facing the exhaust end, loosen the lock ring (turn counterclockwise), then turn the exhaust. To increase flow, turn the exhaust counterclockwise. To decrease flow, turn the exhaust clockwise. Be careful not to unthread the exhaust completely. There will be a point where no more vacuum flow can be achieved.
The amount of vacuum created varies with the porosity of the load being picked up. Units come from the factory set to 15” Hg if used on a solid, non-porous surface. A maximum of 25” Hg can be achieved on a solid, non-porous surface, but will require increasing the air consumption and vacuum flow.
Sample of application:
The vacuum level of the Adjustable E-Vac can quickly be changed from lifting lightweight pavers to heavy cement blocks.
