Double Capacity Ejector Fits Popular Format
PIAB USA, Inc. Posted 12/14/2015
Hingham, MA - Piab is introducing a complement to its range of Value Line vacuum ejectors. The new aluminum block mounted ejector, VL206, is dimensioned to emulate a popular ejector format, making it easy to install into many existing systems. Offering improved performance and more energy-efficient operation, the ejector is a cost-effective and easy-to-install alternative for operators of basic automated vacuum systems.
Value Line is Piab’s economy range for less demanding industrial applications that do not warrant the use of Piab’s specialist vacuum solutions. So far, the range has included small, light-weight vacuum ejectors in two different designs – inline or T-design.
“The capacity of the new ejector is twice that of our inline ejectors. But the really clever advantage is that it is designed to slot nicely into existing systems, where it will offer better performance and more energy-efficient operation for the same price as competing ejectors. It is the ultimate win-win solution,” comments Joseph Karbassi, Vice President of Piab’s Automation Division.
Piab’s vacuum ejection technology is based on ejector cartridges that offer improved vacuum performance compared with conventional single-stage ejectors of corresponding size. Hence, energy savings of up to 28 percent can be achieved if the company’s Value Line ejectors are used to replace similar ejectors. Designed without flap valves, the ejectors are highly reliable, even in dirty and dusty environments.
The Value Line products offer the low-end of the market what Piab has been delivering to its high-end customers for over 60 years – expertise, innovation, and global, uniform delivery and service. Today, the company serves both ends of the market with its advanced and specialized ejector technology solutions, and its range of more basic, standard ejector products.
Established in 1951, Piab designs innovative vacuum solutions that improve the energy-efficiency, productivity, and working environments of vacuum users around the world. As a reliable partner to many of the world’s largest manufacturers, Piab develops and manufactures a complete line of vacuum pumps, vacuum accessories, vacuum conveyors and suction cups for a variety of automated material handling and factory automation processes. Piab utilizes COAX®, a completely new dimension in vacuum technology, in many of its original products and solutions. COAX® cartridges are smaller, more energy efficient and more reliable than conventional ejectors, and can be integrated directly into machinery. This allows for the design of a flexible, modular vacuum system. Piab is a worldwide organization with subsidiaries and distributors in almost 70 countries. Its headquarters are in Sweden.
