The vacuum is generated from the existing airline. Other methods of mounting are by a wedge arrangement or a quick release clamp is available for some vibrators.
Vacuum Fixing Devices for Vibrators - VAC Series
- Quick mounting without bolting or welding
- Strong connection due to high vacuum
- Can also be used on curved or uneven surfaces
- Optional air economizer
- ATEX conform and stainless steel versions available
- Customised versions possible
The vacuum fixing devices series VAC are designed to allow quick attachment of vibrators to smooth or, under circumstances, uneven and curved surfaces. A special feature of the the vacuum fixing is the ease of attachment, which requires no welding or bolting.
Construction and working principle
The appropriate vibrator is screwed to the vacuum fixing and connected to the supply hose leading to the hand valve. As soon as the vacuum fixing is connected to the compressed air supply, the unit is sucked tightly to the mounting surface, thus ensuring a strong connection between the vibrator and the surface. The air economizer "S" creates a reduced vacuum, which is sufficient to clamp the vibrator when it is not running and which reduces the air comsumption by over 30%.
When the vibrator starts, the fixing device automatically produces the full vacuum. ATEX conform vacuum fixings series VAC and units with a stainless steel plate are available.
