EP800 Unipad Pneumatic Vacuum Lifter
The EP800 single pad Venturi vacuum lifter is a dual connect vacuum lifter that is operational in two ways.
- It has the Hand Pump option.
- It has an air connection to connect to an air compressor that operates at a min 4 cfm @ 60 PSI.
The EP800 is used on several materials with a variety of finishes including:
- Blue Stone
- Landscape Materials
- Sheet Metal
- Other Sheet Goods
The EP800 builds air into its reservoir. It offers a double action hand pump for especially quick applications! It only requires about 10-15 pumps to build pressure into the tank. Engage the vacuum to start building suction. Another 10 or so pumps and a full vacuum is acheived.
The EP800 Venturi vacuum lifter will hold a vacuum for approximately 1 hour before reaching the safety line on polished granite without jeopardizing the vacuum integrity.
Once it reaches this state though, with just a couple of pumps, the vacuum is fully loaded for another hour of vacuum. This means that it will build and maintain pressure without air or external power. Only the Weha EP series of vacuum lifters offer this feature!
The EP800 comes with an air connection that can be connected to an air compressor that operates via a venturi system. It also comes with a multi-filter and water trap that prevents the penetration of dust and moisture. This feature protects the pneumatic structural parts against premature wear.
As is the case with all lifters in the EP series, the EP800 sports an acoustic warning buzzer (standard with series EP). The pressure gauge on this lifter is highly visible so it's easy to read. The built in safety-vacuum tank is made of non-corrosive aluminum material to ensure long life.
In addition to the long lasting non-corrosive tank material, the EP800 is easy to maintain since the rubber seals are simple to replace and can be changed quickly in house. This reduces maintenance costs.
Universally applicable for polished and for rough upper surfaces!
