piSAVE Energy Saving Vacuum System

Our piSAVE products are a group of products that has as a function to save energy in various applications. The piSAVE products enhance an existing vacuum system; either at the suction cup or at the vacuum source.

piSAVE - Energy Saving Vacuum Technology

piSAVE restrict

restrict
  • Vacuum flow restrictors which allows a few suction cups to miss the object(s) and still maintain enough vacuum level in the system.
  • Suitable for handling different size sealed sheets/objects with the same flexible lifting device.
  • The vacuum flow restrictors shall be used in a centralized vacuum system, one for each suction cup.
  • Designing with flow restrictors will require a smaller vacuum pump and save energy.
  • Available in three sizes with different flow performance/characteristics to suit different size suction cups.
  • The restrictors are integrated in an Al-fittng with female and male threaded connections to faciliate installation.

piSAVE sense

piSAVE SENSE
  • Vacuum check valves which allows a few suction cups to miss the object(s) and still maintain enough vacuum level in the system with quick response and release times.
  • The vacuum check valves shall be used in a centralized vacuum system, one for each suction cup.
  • Designing with vacuum check valves will require a smaller vacuum pump and save energy.
  • Suitable for handling different size or different number of leaking objects such as MDF boards, corrugated cardboards, with a flexible handling device.
  • Also suitable for objects with surface leakage around the lip of the suction cup.
  • Available in three sizes with different flow performance/characteristics to suit different degree of leakage.
  • The valves are integrated in an Al-fittng with female and male threaded connections to faciliate installation.

piSAVE Release

piSAVE Release
  • Equalises pressure in the suction cups to provide fast release of the product.
  • Extra fast release by accumulating and utilising the feed-air pressure as a boost.
  • ON/OFF activated simultaneously with the ejector.
  • No additional controls required — use a single 3/2 control valve for the ejector and piSAVE release.

piSAVE on/off

piSAVE On/off
  • Independent pneumatic air-saving device for vacuum pumps.
  • Adjustable vacuum controlled 2/2 NO valve.
  • Available with large hysteresis for object handling and small hysteresis for process applications.
  • The Vacustat is recommended for vacuum pumps in non-leaking systems.
  • The vacuum pump must be fitted with a non-return valve.

piSAVE Optimize

piSAVE Optimize
  • Vacuum controlled proportional pressure regulator, a fully pneumatic device suitable for air-driven ejectors/pumps.
  • The feed pressure to the vacuum pump/ejector is automatically regulated and controlled to maintain the set vacuum level. Air/energy usage is kept to a minimum for the application (optimized).
  • Recommended for leaking and sealed applications to save energy and secure the right vacuum level.
  • Extra port for Vacuum gauge.
  • Air ventilation port with filter.
  • Swivel compressed air connections.
  • piSAVE optimize gives maximum feed pressure/flow to vacuum pump/ejector until vacuum level starts to build up.
  • Separate mounting bracket kit.
  • Upgrade kit - available as an integrated module for piCLASSIC and Classic vacuum pumps.

piSAVE on/off

piSAVE ON/OFF
  • Patented COAX technology
  • Substantially lower air consumption
  • Modular design for flexible performance
  • Compact and durable with no moving parts
  • Saves energy when the vacuum requirement varies
