Selecting the Right Vacuum Tube Lifter for Guaranteed Performance

ANVER VT Vacuum Tube Lift Systems use the same basic operating principle: a remotely connected vacuum pump produces a vacuum in the lifting tube and control head. As the control head and pad attachments are placed on the object to be lifted, the pads seal upon the object and the vacuum in the lift tube increases, causing the lift tube to contract, raising the load. As the vacuum (continuously controlled and regulated by the operator using the control handle) is decreased, the lift tube expands, lowering the load. A simple, reliable means for a single operator to effortlessly handle virtually any load.

ANVER VT Series Vacuum Tube Lifting Systems are ergonomic lift assist devices designed for high production use. With their continuous duty cycle, numerous lifts per minute are possible.

ANVER offers several sizes and styles of vacuum tube lifting systems. Selecting the lifting system that will most efficiently meet your load lifting requirements will increase your productivity and make for a safer working environment. Contact ANVER for a free evaluation and recommendation of a system combination that will most economically and safely satisfy your material handling requirements.

We recommend you allow us the opportunity to test your load in order to determine the actual system capacity and capability. ANVER offers a free testing service in our ergonomics lab to assist you in determining your load’s porosity and to help you in choosing the appropriate vacuum lifting system.

System lifting capacities and capabilities are dependent on several factors, including:

  1. Weight and material composition of the load to be lifted (porous, non-porous, or semi-porous)
  2. Total load surface available for lifting
  3. Style of load to be lifted (loose or densely packed, light or heavy wall, compact or bulky size)
  4. System vacuum station (high or low vacuum and flow)
  5. Vacuum level achieved
  6. Vacuum pad attachment size and style
  7. Vacuum safety factor (tube diameter area in proportion to vacuum pad area)

* The lifting capacity ranges shown above should only be used as general guidelines. Actual system capacities are dependent on several factors (load surface porosity, load density, vacuum station, pad attachment, etc.). We offer many combinations of VT Vacuum Tube Lifting Systems within each model range. Contact your local ANVER dealer for a free evaluation and recommendation of a system combination that will most economically and safely satisfy your load handling requirements.

For some applications, tube lifting systems may not offer the proper lifting capability which is why ANVER also offers combination hoist or balancer lifting systems.

Contact ANVER for help in choosing the appropriate tube lift system for your requirements.
