Anver Corp. has introduced the VPFL4-20-AIR series vacuum generator, a below-the-hook vacuum lifter that attaches to contoured structures and vessels.
The lifter features a tribeam design with adjustable, pivoting suction cups. Accommodating loads from 24 to 48 in. in diameter and up to 500 lbs., it has an all-welded steel frame and an adjustable handlebar to keep the operator at a safe distance.
A vacuum loss sensor activates an audiovisual alarm in the event of a vacuum loss or if 10 percent leakage occurs. The lifter includes a slide control valve with a safety lock; a high-capacity, air-powered vacuum pump; gauges; and an air filter. The suction cups come in a selection of materials.
