VACUUM PUMPS | WITH COAX® TECHNOLOGY |
PIAB’s new COAX is the latest patented technology is an offshoot of the multi-stage ejector principle.
COAX® ensures excellent performance at both low and high feed pressures. It’s ideal for situations where compressed air lines deliver air at low or fluctuating pressures.
Pumps based on the COAX® technology can operate within the range of 25 to 87 psi.
Principle behind the COAX® technology
PIAB pioneered and engineered the multistage ejector pump from the simple, single stage pump where suction is induced by a compressed air flow through a Lavel Tube.
PIAB vacuum pumps are of the multi-stage ejector type –a technology patented by PIAB in 1973.
These vacuum pumps were developed to provide extra vacuum flow in combination with deep maximum vacuum levels while keeping energy consumption at a minimum.
P3010 is based on this new technology, derived from the multi-stage ejector principle. Note that both a filter and check valves are integrated into the ejector section. When compressed air (red) passes through the nozzles, air is pulled through with the stream of compressed air. “Suction” (blue) is thus created at the opening of each stage.
Other PIAB designs incorporating COAX ® technology include the Vacuum Gripper System, P2010, P6010, PMAT, Vacustat and the Adjustable Vacuum Palletizer.
PIAB vacuum pumps are compressed air-driven vacuum pumps. The unique construction makes maximum use of the compressed air and therefore consumes less energy. Large vacuum flows and high levels of vacuum are characteristic of PIAB’s vacuum pumps.
When compressed air (1) passes through the nozzles, air is pulled through (2) with the stream of compressed air. “Suction” (3,4,) is thus created at the opening of each stage, resulting in low pressure, vacuum.
