Self Closing Vacuum Valves
The Vacuforce self closing valve is used on vacuum cup handling systems where multiple cups are utilizing the same vacuum source. The valve is mounted directly onto the vacuum port of the vacuum cup. If that cup is damaged or does not seal against the load being lifted, the induced vacuum air flow closes the valve shut. This ensures that the vacuum level is retained in the rest of the vacuum cups installed on the same circuit.
This valve is adjustable and therefore can be used on various size vacuum cups or even on porous surfaces such as cardboard or MDF paneling. The cup mounting can be facilitated using either the G1/4 female or G3/8 male thread. The brass adjustment screw, depending on the cup fitting design, can be adjusted with the vacuum cup installed.
