EXAIR's new Modular E-Vac® Vacuum
Generators are a series of low cost, compressed air powered vacuums for
lifting, "pick and place", clamping, chucking, and surface mounting
applications. These vacuum pumps provide instantaneous response and are
available in many sizes that offer a variety of vacuum levels and flow rates.
They are maintenance free and have no moving parts to wear out.
The lightweight, aluminum construction is compact
and easy to install at the point of use which is ideal for lifting applications

E-Vac Vacuum Generators are available in two styles. Seven low vacuum units up
to 21 inch Hg (71 kPa) generate more airflow to overcome porosity and leakage
when used with porous materials such as cardboard. Seven high vacuum units up
to 27 inch Hg (91 kPa) are ideal for non-porous materials such as glass, steel
sheet, and plastic. Kit configurations that include vacuum cups, fittings,
tubing and a mounting clip are available. Prices start at $58.
