A new vacuum tube lifter that is powered by compressed air, making it ideal for lifting boxes and bags in explosive environments or where where 3-phase electric power is unavailable, is being introduced by ANVER Corp. of Hudson, Massachusetts.
The ANVER VT-Series Tube Lifter and MSP400 Multi-Stage Air-Powered Vacuum Station operate on the venturi principle to provide vacuum levels down to 27” Hg and flows to 148 SCFM. Ideal for handling boxes and bags in explosive environments, this ergonomic lifter eliminates electric pump burn-out, has no internal moving parts or bearings, and is virtually maintenance-free.
Providing a 100% continuous duty cycle, the ANVER VT-Series Tube Lifter and MSP400 Multi-Stage Air-Powered Vacuum Station are designed for loads weighing up to 150 lbs. The vacuum lifter has an easy grip handle with up/down controls that adjust to a person’s hand strength and a quick-connect pad attachment, while the compact vacuum station measures only 10” W x 12.5” D x 7.5” H.
