The supply of several working stations with vacuum over a vacuum network opens up new possibilities for saving costs and laboratory space and the efficient use of laboratory vacuum. Short hose connections lead to more orderliness and an improved overview, which in turn result in increased safety for laboratory personnel, materials and equipment. The use of a powerful vacuum pump allows the vacuum requirement of several working stations to be supplied locally and the actual vacuum requirement of a recipient to be controlled and measured from a central point. These positive characteristics are combined in MLT's VACUNET system. The VACUNET vacuum network is configured in accordance with the modular principle and is suitable for installation in new laboratory furniture or for retrofitting into existing laboratory facilities. If desired, the hose connections between the individual modules can be routed as exposed to view in front of the laboratory screen or behind the cover.
The compact yet powerful VX3 vacuum membrane pump can supply up to 6 working stations with vacuum. This arrangement avoids the high costs of providing several vacuum pumps, yet retains the flexibility of individual working stations. A number of different modules also offer the user the possibility at a later stage of modifying or expanding his VACUNET system to suit changed needs.
The MLT VACUNET system consists of 2 basic modules that can be combined with different types of magnetic valves, hand/lock valves, hand valves and double connections and adjusted to suit the needs of the user. The use of materials with high chemical resistance also ensures the durability of the product when used with aggressive media. The individual modular enclosures are manufactured in aluminium and covered with a hard Ematal coating. All modules fulfil the highest requirements for quality and resistance. The individual module enclosures are fitted with an integrated check valve. This prevents external influences from affecting the working pressure or causing contamination.
Hand-/ Lock valve VN KFM is suitable for the conveyance of highly aggressive gases. The valve's plunger is completely separated from the medium flow and the module body (ALU) has a hard Ematal coating. The flow can be stopped or released by manually switching the ball valve. Integrated fine regulation by means of a t-bar allows the user to reduce and optimise the flow.
Magnetic valve VN RFM is suitable for the conveyance of highly aggressive gases. The valve's plunger is completely separated from the medium flow and the module body (ALU) has a hard Ematal coating. This type of valve allows precise adjustment of the flow. The integrated recoil valve prevents external influence on the working pressure of the recipient..
The valve plate for wall fastening VN is suitable for the delivery of highly aggressive gases and is equipped for 1 valve position. The module enclosure (aluminium) is protected by a highly chemically resistant hard Ematal coating. This module can be mounted in a space-saving manner on a wall. The use of elements from the VACUnet program brings ORDERLINESS-OVERVIEW-SAVETY.
