Integrated vacuum pump/suction cup for greater efficiency
March 13, 2003
Unit features a suction cup and an efficient multi-stage air-driven vacuum pump integrated into a single unit. This avoids problems in traditional vacuum systems with a centrally located vacuum pump. A traditional vacuum system installation takes into account possible pressure loss. This unit avoids the problem of pressure loss because the pump and suction cup are integrated. It can even function at operating pressures below 45 psi, increasing reliability in case of a breakdown in the air pressure network.
