Vacuum Pumps: a range of 4 Schmalz vacuum pumps incorporating water ring pumps, vacuum centre, oil-lubricated vacuum pumps and dry running vacuum pumps that generate a very high level of vacuum. They are extremely reliable, robust, mainly used in packaging machines, manual handling systems, or for central vacuum generation in gantry-style systems.
Vacuum Blower: perfectly suited to the handling of cardboard boxes, foam materials, insulating materials, recycling materials and other extremely porous materials, it has enormous suction capacities – up to 540 m³
Compressed Air Distributor: Schmalz-developed compressed air distributors for mounting compact ejectors in blocks with a single compressed air inlet.
Basic & Compact Ejectors: This range consists of multi-stage ejectors, inline ejectors and compact ejectors, as well as a range of ‘other ejectors’. The latter is a specialised range of ejectors for various applications with short cycle times.
A vacuum, in vacuum generators, is created either pneumatically or electrically. Pneumatic vacuum generators implement short cycle times and can be integrated directly into the system due to their compact and lightweight design.
Electrical vacuum generators are used in applications when compressed air is not available, or when very high suction capacities are required.
The nominal suction rate of all vacuum generators is given in l/min or m3/h. The values are based on an ambient pressure of 1,013 mbar (sea level) and an ambient temperature of 20° C.
The maximum suction rate, therefore, indicates the volume flow that the vacuum generator evacuates from the environment – which is known as free flow.
Vacuum generators provide the required vacuum, which is generated either pneumatically (ejectors) or electrically (pumps, blowers). Pneumatic vacuum generators implement short cycle times and can be integrated directly into the system due to their compact and lightweight design.
Ejectors on the other hand offer intelligent functions for energy and process control. Electrical vacuum generators are used in applications when compressed air is not available or if very high suction capacities are required.
