At Gast, we understand that every customer has unique engineering goals, and therefore requires different products to help make those unique goals a reality. One of our top examples of this comes in the form of our vacuum generators. Sometimes a regular vacuum pump simply will not be suitable for various reasons, and therefore a vacuum generator is the ideal solution. These vacuum generators still offer superior control, but are lightweight in construction and operate on shop air, which makes them a very adaptable and easy implementation for whatever project or process you have on your hands this time around.
Available in a range of maximum flow and maximum vacuum power, Gast has a vacuum generator guaranteed to suit your engineering needs. They also all provide you with superior control over pressure levels to ensure they generate the right type of suction for the task at hand. By adjusting inlet pressure and by cycling on and off rather than regulating the vacuum line through venting to atmosphere, maximum performance is achieved while minimal noise is produced. Our generators also use no moving parts, while simultaneously managing to use less compressed air and delivering more vacuum flow than other units.
Depending on the application you're planning, your vacuum generator unit may need to be washed occasionally. While our units require minimal maintenance, when the time does come to care for them, it is easy to do so. These units can be flushed with soap and water and reassembled in just around two minutes. Plus, this can all be done without removing the generator from wherever you decide to mount it. This all makes maintenance a breeze on your end and minimizes the time you're left without your machinery, too. More running time means more efficient results for you, which is what we at Gast are always looking to achieve: an unmatched experience for our customers.
Common applications for these units include uses in material handling, such as vacuum filling and hoists, bag packaging equipment, and automated product feeding systems. Those in transportation also find our vacuum generators to be useful when it comes to oil change equipment. More generally, our vacuum generators can be implemented in processes like dust or chip collection, and even in de-soldering equipment. This list of applications is far from comprehensive, however, as our customers are always finding new and innovative ways of implementing our parts and equipment into their existing machines or processes, and they're often utilizing them to create new machines and new processes as well.
At Gast, we always want you to get the most out of the parts you order from us, which is why we offer documentation and support manuals for almost all of our products, and our vacuum generators are no exception. Plus, they are also covered by our twelve month warranty, which means that we protect them from material or workmanship defects for that period of time as long as they are installed and operated under normal conditions of use.
