Comparison of vacuum pumps and air amplifiers
Optimal usage zone: 0 to 12% vacuum.
Maximum usage range: 0 to 15% vacuum.
Applications: TRANSPORT - DRYING - DEGASSING
Handling very porous, light-weight products: carpet, textiles, foam, etc
Transporting small objects: granules, grains of coffee, rice, paperclips, etc.
Smoke evacuation, degassing.
Types of vacuum pumps
· Version X, 50% vacuum
Optimal usage zone: 13 to 40% vacuum.
Maximum usage range: 0 to 50% vacuum.
Use of vacuum pumps creating 50% vacuum implies a high suction fl ow rate in relation to the pressure drop.
· Version T, 75% vacuum and N, 90 % vacuum
Optimal usage zone: 41 to 90 % vacuum.
Maximum usage range: 0 to 90 % vacuum.
The interest of the vacuum pump which can create a 90% vacuum is to generate a high vacuum and therefore a high force/surface ratio.
Applications: HANDLING - SUCTION - EMPTYING - DOSING
. Handling porous, semi-porous and air-tight products.
. Programmed operations.
. Air and/or liquid dosing.
- With version N, 90% vacuum:
Create a localized vacuum. Rationalize use of the vacuum in the machine functions using suction pads.
- With version T, 75% vacuum:
Create a generalized vacuum in suction tables and chambers.
Ejectors are very often integrated into automated handling equipment.
