Vacuum Generators

If your production processes require the removal of air and gas molecules, you need a reliable vacuum generator. Vacuum generators enable you to keep your operations running smoothly, but with so many options available it can be hard to know which one is best for your business. 

Fortunately, at Orange Coast Pneumatics, we offer an expansive selection of compressed air vacuum generators for diverse applications. Find the best solution for your business below.

Then, read below to learn more about this vital equipment. To ensure that you get the most out of your investment, it’s important to understand what a vacuum generator is, which industries use them, and how they work. 

What is a Vacuum Generator?

Vacuum generators use compressed air to generate a vacuum using a venturi. This creates a low-pressure environment, often much lower than atmospheric pressure, which is ideal for a wide range of industrial processes. The vacuum generator draws in air or gas molecules, removing them from the process and often creating a “vacuum” that can be filled with other materials. 

What Industries Use Vacuum Generators?

Vacuum generators are used extensively in many industries ranging from food production to automotive manufacturing. In food production, vacuum generators enable precise control over packaging and sealing processes by reducing oxygen levels inside the package. 

In automotive manufacturing, vacuum generators are used to create low-pressure environments necessary for testing engines and other components. Vacuum generators also help remove outside air contaminants that could otherwise interfere with product functionality in industries such as aerospace, electronics, and medical device manufacturing.

How to Create a Vacuum with Compressed Air

Vacuum generators create a vacuum by reducing the air pressure inside an enclosed space. This is accomplished by connecting compressed air sources — such as pumps or blowers — to an intake valve. 

The intake valve reduces the pressure of incoming air before it enters the vacuum chamber. Once inside the chamber, additional valves can be used to further reduce the pressure until a desired level of vacuum is achieved. 

The entire process is automated and requires minimal user intervention. If you require precise control over your processes, vacuum generators are essential tools for creating high-quality products with consistent results. 

Pneumatic Vacuum Generators from Orange Coast Pneumatics

SMC's air vacuum generators can be connected via a manifold or used individually. Multi-stage units with suction flow greater than 7 SCFM (200 l/min.) enable vacuum levels down to -27 inHG (-91kPa).

SMC's versatile generators take customization to the next level. Whether you require suction filters, sensors switches or supply/release valves integrated onto your device - our technology has you covered! Plus, we offer external vacuum distribution management for an all-encompassing package.

SMC ZK2 Vac Generator

The ZK2 Series of energy-saving vacuum generators from SMC is built to bring cost-effective yet reliable performance to your operations and processes. Designed for long periods of continuous use, these vacuum generators boast a robust build and construction that is able to withstand the most demanding industrial environments. 

The SMC ZK2 vacuum generator series offers superior performance compared to our other single-stage generators, reducing air consumption by up to 93% and increasing suction by 50%. This remarkable efficiency is achieved through its innovative design, which uses a single-stage motor system with an integrated pressure sensor to monitor airflow. 

ZM Vacuum Generator Series

The ZM Vacuum Generator Series is the perfect solution for businesses that require the removal of air & gas molecules from their product and operations. Featuring a patented design and advanced engineering, the ZM Vacuum Generator Series provides powerful and reliable vacuum generation without the need for costly auxiliary pumps or power sources. 

These complete units feature a vacuum switch, an internal suction filter, a supply and break valve, and an exhaust silencer. They boast a compact size that boost portability and usefulness, while the dual-stage nozzle design increases suction flow by 40% over single-stage generators.

ZM series generators also boast a strong vacuum brake pressure for quick cycle times. Best of all, you can customize your generator in standalone or manifold configurations.
