COVAL's GVMAX HD series of heavy-duty vacuum pumps combine robustness, power, modularity and communication, allowing them to adapt to multiple applications. And thanks to IO-Link technology, they are fully connected to the Industry of the Future.
IO-Link and NFC, Simplified Communication
The IO-Link communication interface of the COVAL GVMAX HD vacuum pumps provide fast and cost-effective installation, continuous diagnostics, centralized configuration and efficient communication with higher level protocols (Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT...).
In addition, thanks to NFC technology integrated into the GVMAX HD vacuum pumps, all configuration and diagnostic functions are accessible and can be modified in the dedicated COVAL Vacuum Manager app on an Android or IOS mobile device. The NFC interface combined with the app make it possible to copy parameters from one pump to another very easily and can store up to five different parameter configurations.
Product ergonomics have been centered on the operator, with a Human Machine Interface (HMI) that makes the operating, diagnostic and maintenance information easy to read and allows parameters to be set up rapidly. The 1.54'' color LCD display is intuitive, with explicit messages in 5 languages. The pump status is highly visible thanks to a 3-color status light.
Finally, with the GVMAX HD vacuum pumps, the user can benefit from technical assistance thanks to the data sent by the application to COVAL experts.
The new GVMAX HD vacuum pump is designed to permanently communicate with its environment, ready to play its part to the fullest in Industry 4.0.
Performance, Robustness and Energy Savings
Equipped with a single-stage venturi, the GVMAX HD vacuum pump delivers powerful suction rates and reduced evacuation times for gripping, transferring or clamping parts of various sizes and weights. For example, max. vacuum: 85%, suction flow rate up to 230 Nl/ min and 0.4 s to empty a volume of 1 liter to 75% vacuum.
Each component has been designed and tested in real-life situations to meet the toughest environmental conditions. As such, the pumps are IP65 and guaranteed for more than 50 million cycles.
The performance of the vacuum pumps comes along with reduced energy consumption. The ASC (Air Saving Control) technology, which provides intelligent vacuum regulation by stopping air consumption when the set vacuum level is reached, offers up to 90% energy savings.
Ease of Use
The GVMAX HD series is designed to allow quick and easy maintenance servicing, while minimizing the impact on production. The patented Smart Swap system, a Coval innovation, allows pumps to be replaced while under pressure and without needing tools. In addition, the modular design of the GVMAX HD makes it possible to make targeted servicing on each pump element, simultaneously lowering costs and servicing time.
To adapt to the installation setup and available space, it is possible to install each pump as a stand-alone assembly or as an island assembly of up to 4 pumps with a common pressure supply.
The GVMAX HD Heavy Duty vacuum pumps are the result of more than 30 years of collaboration between COVAL and industrialists from all sectors.
They fully meet their requirements: Versatility, Robustness, Performance and Communication.
