VB Series Lift
Systems - High Flow (Larger,
Air or Electric Powered
with an Air Balancer or Electric Hoist for Lifting
Vacuum Lifting Systems are fully integrated material handling systems designed for fast, safe, one person
handling of bags, boxes and other porous-type loads. A large, ultra high vacuum,
direct-drive vacuum pump provides the suction necessary for load attachment and holding; a rugged, electric
chain hoist or an air balancer is used for load lifting. The VB Vacuum-Hoist Lifting System is a fully integrated
lifting system for safe,
controlled handling of heavy, porous loads with lifting capacities of up to 1100
lb (500 kg).
Easy-to-use, ergonomically designed, fully integrated controls operate all
system components. Up and down hoist movement is controlled by two push
buttons for added safety.

Lifting The VB
Vacuum-Hoist Lifting System chain hoist
or air balancer provides secure up/down movement. The load can be set in position to hang
exactly where set, with no vertical drift.
Compact Headroom The VB system's compact design requires little headroom. The standard lift length
varies depending on which model is selected. Consult factory for headroom and lift length
dimensions. Standard load
capacities range from 275 to 1,100 lb (125 to 500 kg).
Integrated Controls Easy-to-use, ergonomically designed, fully integrated controls mounted on the handle
operate the hoist and vacuum release. Hoist up and down movement is controlled by two push buttons for
safety. A gauge to indicate vacuum level is mounted on the control for monitoring by the
operator. Extended length handles are also available.
Dual or Variable Speed Chain Hoist The rugged electric chain hoist offers secure, precise movement and allows the operator to release
or hold the load at an exact height. This feature is very useful for applications such as
slowly pouring the contents of a bag into a hopper.
Adjustable Vacuum Level The VB
Vacuum-Hoist Lifting System's vacuum level can be reduced temporarily as might be necessary for separating porous
material such as individual sheets of particleboard from a stack.
Independent Hoist Operation VB
Vacuum-Hoist Lifting Systems combine the features of a vacuum lifter with those of a hoist and can be used
for either purpose. The switchover is easy and takes only a few seconds. A built-in slip
clutch stops the lift if the system is overloaded.
Customized Systems VB
Vacuum-Hoist Lifting Systems that
use compressed air powered hoists / air balancers with higher duty cycles or for use in
explosive environments are also available. Contact ANVER for special applications.
Note: The shown bag
emptying process works in most cases with ANVER's VB Vacuum Lifting
System (a unique capability) as the VB system is non-weight sensitive
with a constant suction flow (unlike vacuum tube lifting systems).
