P3010 AVM™2,

Product image may differ from actual product.
  • Patented multistage COAX® cartridge - MINI - with Pi, Si, Xi cartridge.
  • AVM™2, Automatic Vacuum Management, unit with built-in control and monitoring functions.
  • Valves for vacuum on/off, blow-off, blow-off flow control and non-return valve.
  • Option with Normally Closed "fail safe" on/off valve (NC). It changes to an open valve if power is lost and vacuum will be generated. A conventional normally closed on/off valve (NC 2) is also available. It stays closed if electrical power is lost or removed.
  • Option with automatic blow-off (1 sec) reduces number of outputs needed from PLC or I/O box.
  • Analog vacuum sensor with two digital outputs.
  • Digital display with “-kPa” or “-inHg” as unit options.
  • Integrated energy saving function (ES) that minimizes the air consumption in sealed systems. The ES function can be activated manually or via a signal (signal override).
  • Three-color LED status indicators for valves, signal outputs and ES.

    • Vacuum pumps

      • Does an ejector pump use more energy than a mechanical pump?
        • When the pumps are on,  the ejector pump actually uses more energy than the mechanical, however most vacuum applications are intermittent- suction and release- and the ejector pump can follow that cycle and be switched off and on easily along with the cycle which in total gives a much lower energy consumption compared to the mechanical pump that is on all the time.

      • Does Piab offer any warranty on vacuum pumps?
        • Piab offers a warranty to distributors, integrators and users of Piab products worldwide as per the following definitions:

          • A five-year warranty is valid for vacuum pumps excluding accessories and controls.
          • A one-year warranty is valid for other products if the failure has occurred within specified lifetime in terms of duty cycles.

          General warranty principles:

          • Piab guarantees against defects in the manufacture and materials by normal use in proper environment, when following the instructions for care, maintenance and control described in the appropriate Piab manual.
          • Piab replaces or repairs, free of charge, faulty products provided that these are returned to Piab, and found to be covered by the warranty.
          • It is at Piab's discretion whether a faulty product should be sent back to Piab for replacement or if the repair shall be made locally at Piab's expense.
          • This warranty does not include wear parts such as suction cups, filter elements, sealings, hoses, etc.
          • This warranty does not include subsequent damages caused by defective products.
      • How can I set the vacuum level when handling different objects which individually need different levels?
        • The multistage COAX® ejector is designed so the maximum vacuum level can be adjusted by the compressed air feed pressure. By using a piSAVE optimize, you can set the specific vacuum level needed and the piSAVE optimize will adjust the feed pressure to the pump accordingly. You will never use more compressed air than needed in the application. Please also try the piSAVE optimize calculator to see the actual energy saving by doing this.

      • How do I know which COAX® cartridge to use?
        • The easiest way is to use the selection guide in the pump section.  MICRO, MINI and MIDI describe size and capacity where MICRO is smallest and MIDI the largest.  Each are available in a few different characteristics, one for extra high flow (Si), one for extra high vacuum level (Xi), one for handling low of fluctuating compressed air feed-pressure (Bi/Pi) and finally an extra dirt tolerant design (Ti).

      • How do I service my pump?
        • Due to the design of the COAX® multistage ejector in the pump with no moving parts, there is virtually no maintenance.

      • I have an older Piab vacuum pump and need spare parts. How can they be identified?
        • First download the manual from the homepage and there you will find the part numbers of the different spare parts.  

      • What are the advantages with the multistage ejector compared to a single stage ejector?
        • A single stage ejector is designed for either high vacuum flow or high vacuum level. The multistage COAX® ejector has a combination of different nozzles providing both high flow and high vacuum level performance in the same ejector.  This design also gives lower energy consumption for equal performance

      • What are the port sizes on this pump? I am unfamiliar with these threads?
        • For the port sizes, go to the product and download the data sheet, that can be downloaded after registering. Specification on thread type is not provided on the webpage.

      • What is COAX®?
        • COAX® is an advanced solution for creating vacuum with compressed air. Based on Piab’s multistage technology, COAX® cartridges are smaller, more efficient and more reliable than conventional ejectors, which allow for the design of a flexible, modular and efficient vacuum system. A vacuum system based on COAX® technology can provide you with three times more vacuum flow than conventional systems, allowing you to increase speed with high reliability while reducing energy consumption.  COAX® cartridges exist in several sizes (MICRO, MINI & MIDI) and models (Bi, Pi, Si, Ti & Xi), making them suitable for every application. The technology ensures excellent performance at both low and high feed pressures. Pumps based on COAX® technology can operate within the feed pressure range of 25-87 psi.

      • When should I use integration of a vacuum cartridge in my system?
        • The most common problem in a vacuum system is that you have restrictions between the vacuum source and the point of suction, e.g. long narrow hoses. By integrating the vacuum cartridges in your system, you are then able to place the vacuum source close to the point where you need the vacuum.  You have minimized the restrictions and will minimize the energy consumption in your system. You will also have a more compact solution.

      • Which vacuum level should I use?
        • In lifting applications with suction cups do not use more vacuum than needed. We normally recommend 18-inHg. Too high of a vacuum level gives lower efficiency and you would use more energy that actually needed. 

      • Why should I choose a combined pump and gripper (VGS)?
        • The most common problem in a vacuum system is that you have restrictions between the vacuum source and the point of suction, e.g. long narrow hoses. By using the combined pump and gripper, the vacuum is generated at the suction cup. You have minimized the restrictions and will minimize the energy consumption in your system.

      • Why should I use an ejector pump instead of a mechanical pump?
        • The ejector technology has no moving parts thus with virtually no maintenance, it will provide higher reliability. It is also much smaller in size and weight that gives you the possibility to place it closer to the point of suction or where you actually need the vacuum.  The mechanical pump also has a much higher noise level and produces heat, meaning that normally you would need to have it in an insulated room.
