A fully integrated ergonomic vacuum lifting system that combines high flow vacuum with an electric or air hoist to create an efficient lifter that is not weight sensitive and won’t float when handling porous loads, such as bags and single wall boxes, is available from ANVER Corporation of Hudson, Massachusetts.
The ANVER VB Series Vacuum Lifter has a fully integrated vacuum pick-up and chain hoist that provides twice the airflow of conventional vacuum tube lifters for handling porous loads weighing up to 1,000 lbs (454 kg). Ideally suited for lifting, slitting, and emptying bags, it is not weight sensitive so that loads can be released at any point in the air without floating.
Featuring all welded steel construction and a wide selection of standard and custom vacuum pick-up heads for bags, single and multiple boxes, or panels, the ANVER VB Series Vacuum Lifter can be equipped with either 5, 7.5, or 10 HP vacuum pumps with a 2 in. (51 mm) diameter hose, providing 220 to 600 SCFM (6230 to 16990 l/min.) air flows. Designed for continuous duty, it only needs 28 in. (711 mm) of head room.
