Vaccon's air-powered venturi vacuum generators are highly efficient, capable of reaching 28"Hg [948mbar], dirt tolerant, and include a silencer for quiet operation. Lightweight and compact, they can be easily mounted close to the vacuum point for fast response.
All Mid Series generators incorporate Vaccon’s interchangeable venturi cartridge system that allows designers to choose from 11 different cartridge assemblies to optimize generator performance to meet their specific application needs.
By nature, vacuum generators draw in the atmosphere in which they operate in. Any debris, dirt and/or dust in the air will be drawn through the generator. Whether your application is carton erecting, pet food bagging, sheet feeding, or any other application, Vaccon generators operate continuously without maintenance or vacuum filters that can clog, degrade performance, cause downtime and increase costs.
Modular Venturi Vacuum Generators:
Venturi Vacuum Generators from Vaccon Product Families
Modular Venturi Vacuum Generators are designed for the “A-La-Carte” choices required when solving application issues. Venturi Vacuum Cartridges are chosen by performance and integrated into a body style based on required accessories.
In keeping pace with industry's need for improved automation and material handling methods, Vaccon introduced the Fastvac Series. The Fastvac Series provides maximum design flexibility by using a modular component approach. Integrating a venturi vacuum generator, sensors, and solenoid valves within one assembly, the Fastvac Series provides complete vacuum systems capable of interfacing with computerized control systems.
For maximum application versatility, the VP Series utilizes modular components to allow designers to specify only those features necessary for their specific application. Flexibility is further increased by the use of our cartridge venturi system which allows any one of eleven venturis to be inserted into any of the four body styles. Without considering optional accessories, this represents 44 possible configurations.Modular Venturi Vacuum Generators with Pneumatic Blowoff
Vaccon’s Modular Venturi Vacuum Generators with pneumatic blow-off are manufactured with an integral part release blow-off system that provides an instantaneous, fixed duration blast of air when the vacuum generator is turned off. No additional wiring or plumbing is required.
Vaccon VP0X, VP1X, VP2X/VP2XBV and VP8X/VP8XBV Series Fastbreak Modular Venturi Vacuum Generators are manufactured with an integral pneumatic blow-off system that provides an instantaneous blast of stored air when the vacuum generator is turned off. Vaccon's modular venturi vacuum generators with high speed blow-off are ideally suited for pick and place applications that require accurate part placement and rapid part release. In addition to offering extremely fast blow-off capabilities, these compact generators incorporate the same high quality construction features and superior operating performance for which all Vaccon products are known. No external plumbing or on-site assembly is required.Venturi Generators with Solenoid Operated Vacuum and Blow-off
Vaccon’s VP01QRBV and VP35 Solenoid-controlled Modular Venturi Vacuum generators feature dual solenoid valves to control air for both vacuum control and blow-off for rapid part release. The integral vacuum and blow‑off circuit design provides instantaneous response for high speed assembly and pick & place applications.
The VP01QRBV Series vacuum is a compact, low profile, lightweight unit ideal for small part pick and place applications. These compact generators require little installation space and can be positioned close to the vacuum point for fast response.
The VP35 is a Mid Series Modular Venturi Vacuum generator with dual solenoid valves for vacuum control and rapid part release. Like other Vaccon Mid Series generators, performance can be updated by swapping out the interchangeable venturi vacuum cartridge.Multi-port Venturi Vacuum Generators
Vaccon VP Multi-port generators have 4 (VP10, VP20 or VP80) or 6 (VP90) vacuum ports that distribute vacuum equally to multiple locations with “Home-Run” plumbing. The streamlined design minimizes vacuum loss, maximizes vacuum flow and speeds cycle times for safe, efficient lifting operations.
In addition to the 4 or 6 vacuum ports, there is an additional port that can be plumbed to a compressed air source to provide a blow-off. The manifold design allows the one compressed air connection to feed blow-off air to all vacuum locations simultaneously, saving the need to plumb a separate blow-off line to each location. An M5 threaded port allows you to connect a Vaccon miniature vacuum sensor/switch to provide an electrical signal for vacuum achieved/part present and to alert failures.
- VP10-MP Series provides the flexibility of the compact and lightweight VP10 Modular design with an integral 4 Port vacuum manifold.
- VP20-MP Series provides the flexibility of most popular Modular Venturi Generator with an integral 4 Port vacuum manifold. A glycerin-filled vacuum gauge is standard, and an integrated solenoid valve for vacuum control is an option.

Venturi Vacuum Generators with Air Saver Technology
Vaccon offers a line of venturi vacuum generators with full pneumatic Air Saver Technology. The air saver system is ideal for vacuum applications that are time dependent. It reduces the use of compressed air, reducing the overhead costs.
The Vaccon Air Saver Circuit is an all-pneumatic system designed to minimize compressed air usage in vacuum clamping and vessel evacuation applications. For pick and place applications handling non-porous materials, the Air Saver Circuit will maintain a safe holding force, save compressed air and hold the part even if the compressed air supply is interrupted providing an extra level of safety when handling large loads.
This complete system requires only a compressed air source to be fully functional. The system includes a venturi vacuum generator, vacuum check valve, air piloted air valve and pneumatic vacuum switch. The pneumatic vacuum switch is the brain of the system that constantly monitors the vacuum level.
The Vaccon Air Saver Technology has been adapted to the entire range of Vaccon venturi vacuum generators. These are ideal for creating and maintaining vacuum for safe, energy efficient operations for clamping, pick and place and vessel evacuation applications.
All-Pneumatic Pilot Controlled Venturi Vacuum Generators
The all pneumatic VP50 Series are air pilot controlled venturi vacuum generators that feature an integral check valve and air pilot controlled blow-off for rapid part release or vacuum line clean out. Using air pilot control, VP50 Series generators generate vacuum only when needed, minimizing compressed air consumption. The unique, compact design of the VP50 Series allows for easy integration close to the work area for faster response.
There are three versions of the VP50 Series available:
High Vacuum Venturi Vacuum Generators
- VP50 Air pilot vacuum control and blow-off
- VP50-AS Integrated air saver circuit, for reduced air consumption and pilot controlled blow-off
- VP50-ASP Air pilot controlled vacuum with integrated air saver circuit, pilot controlled blow-off and pneumatic signal output for vacuum setpoint notification
