Classic Vacuum Pumps

  • SVG_ML100N

A vacuum pump is any kind of pumping device that extracts air molecules from a volume to reduce internal pressure below atmospheric (barometric) pressure.  This sub-atmospheric pressure is commonly called a “vacuum” or “suction” and may be used with a rubber cup to pick up workpieces without marring their surfaces.
EDCO offers six different series of Classic pumps, each having different performance characteristics and optimum operating air pressures, and all are priced the same.  This allows the proper pump to be selected for a particular application without any concern for pump price.
Classic vacuum pumps from EDCO USA are available in standard configuration or compact Mini-Classic configuration that use the same six nozzle series to provide equal performance.

How Does an Air-powered Vacuum Generator Work?

Compressed air powered vacuum pumps, also known as vacuum generators, employ the Bernoulli principle which states that an increase in the speed of a fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy.
