Piab introduces a new COAX cartridge that is great for applications where there is dust or dirt present. This MINI size cartridge is ideal for Piab’s VGS 3010 vacuum gripper system, a decentralized vacuum system that features a suction cup and a multi-stage air driven vacuum pump integrated in a single unit, called a “Gripper.”
In dusty/dirty environments, such as in packaging where corrugated dust is prevalent, this new COAX Di16-2 dust-proof cartridge performs very well. Usually, in these places, vacuum filters cannot be used due to their propensity to fill up with dust and reduce the overall effectiveness of the vacuum system. The new COAX Di16-2 is a two-stage cartridge without flap valves. Dust and dirt has a free path through the ejector nozzles, eliminating the risk for clogging- even in extreme applications, such as high humidity in combination with dust. The COAX Di16-2 provides vacuum levels down to 70-kPa at a feed pressure of 6 bar.
COAX is an ejector technology based on a multi-stage concept for creating vacuum with compressed air. By integrating the internal components of a multi-stage vacuum pump into a vacuum cartridge, COAX allows for a smaller, more efficient, more reliable and highly flexible technology. This flexibility is particularly helpful for users who plan to design a modular system to address specific application needs.
The majority of Piab’s current vacuum pumps feature COAX technology and are compact, simple to install and generate minimal noise.
