VacLoc with Integral Pump
The VLP includes all the VacLoc features plus a coaxial ejector vacuum pump cartridge that is integrated into a compact single-piece body. Response time is greatly improved by minimizing flow paths and system volume. Reliability is improved by eliminating external plumbing and potential leak points.
Pilot Controlled Quick Release OptionThe pilot controlled quick release option for VacLocs work the same as the normal models except compressed-air is not used to release the work object. Using compressed air to release the work object increases air consumption by quite a bit compared to the amount used to generate vacuum. The PQR option uses a valve which is actuated by a compressed air signal that can be connected to all PQR valves in a system without concern for balancing pilot lines. The only compressed air flow is a small amount to pressurize the pilot lines to all PQR valves. The pilot signal shifts the PQR valve which opens a large passage from the vacuum port to atmosphere to immediately dissipate vacuum and release the work object.
The PQR option is available for VacLoc’s with or without an integral pump.
