Vacuum tanks and vacuum accumulators maintain the required vacuum level for a period in the event of failure of the vacuum generator as the result of an interrupted power supply or defective unit and prevent accidental release of workpieces. When dimensioned correctly, vacuum accumulators ensure the efficient operation of the vacuum network.
FIPA vacuum tanks compensate for vacuum losses during the sucking up the workpieces and ensure an even and thus gentle operation of vacuum generators, such as side channel blowers, vacuum pumps, piston and screw compressors for example.
All FIPA vacuum safety tanks are made of corrosion-resistant aluminium and can be used as compressed air reservoirs and repositories for non-abrasive liquids.
