Create Vacuum from a Minimized Air Source

Don't limit your fabricating options because your resources are limited. The High Efficiency Vacuum Generator allows you to convert even a small air compressor into a reliable vacuum source for vacuum bagging and resin infusion applications—without a large investment.

When attached in-line to a compressor capable of producing 30–75 psi at 1.6 CFM, it creates a venturi-style vacuum that pulls 1.6 CFM at 26" Hg (mercury), suitable for creating parts up to 50 square feet.

  • Product ships fully assembled and features a quick-connect fitting for attachment to air supply
  • Also ships with our 12" (OD) Plastic Barb Fitting (#901-A), for connecting to 12" vacuum tubing (#893, sold separately)
  • Features no moving parts for zero maintenance

PLEASE NOTE: Larger air compressors are advisable for continuous use applications, and should be used with the #1148-A Vacuum Generator.

warning WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Nickel, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov

Elevation Matters

Dec 3, 2015  |  By Anthony

There needs to be a statement in the product description in regards to elevation and how it affects maximum theoretical vacuum. The sales staff also needs to be educated about it. The person I talked to was certain it would produce 26inhg where I live but that isn't even possible at 5000ft above sea level even with the most favorable atmospheric conditions. The generator is high quality but the it performance is poorly stated and overestimated in many situations.
