Single-Stage & Multi-Stage Vacuum Generators Contact Us
Air-powered vacuum generators, also called vacuum pumps, are compact, lightweight, and highly versatile. Air-powered vacuum pumps are any pumping device that extracts air molecules from a volume to reduce internal pressure below atmospheric pressure to create vacuum. Vacuum pump technology can then be used with rubber vacuum cups to pick up workpieces without marring their surface.EDCO manufactures industrial vacuum generator pumps in single-stage and multi-stage designs to meet your application’s specific requirements. We also offer a full range of material transfer pumps and air amplifiers to compliment your vacuum generator pump needs.
Industrial Vacuum Pumps & Vacuum Generator Accessories
Single-Stage Vacuum GeneratorsSingle-stage vacuum pumps provide air-powered vacuum with an instantaneous response. They are compact, light, cost-effective, and feature rugged, all-metal constructions that will give years of trouble-free service. The no-clog, no-valve design is perfectly suited to packaging and applications involving debris that can be ingested into the vacuum system.
Note: The G12 Body vacuum gripper is multi-stage. All other bodies are single-stage.
Multi-Stage Vacuum GeneratorsMulti-stage air-powered vacuum pumps provide a larger vacuum flow capacity than single-stage pumps. Our multi-stage pumps are created by placing identical nozzle sets in parallel by adding nozzle sets in the primary body or using an additional stack module to obtain higher vacuum-flow capacity. Our multi-stage vacuum venturi generator pumps can also be selected for both high-flow and high-vacuum mode capabilities by selecting from standard nozzle sets.
Vacuum Ejector Pumps vs. Electromechanical PumpsWhen it comes to overall efficiency and protecting energy loss, air-powered vacuum generator pumps can provide increased protection over electromechanical pumps in various ways.
The size requirements of each vacuum pump significantly differ. Vacuum ejectors can be placed close to where the vacuum is required, preventing energy losses. In contrast, electromechanical vacuum pumps require a more centralized position. Venturi-style Vacuum generator pumps switch on and off between cycles, resulting in a 50% or greater reduction in energy consumption throughout a production cycle. Electromechanical vacuum pumps cannot be stopped or started during a cycle.
Overall, vacuum ejector pumps consume less energy and provide greater flexibility than electromechanical pump options.
