Double capacity ejector fits popular format

Piab is introducing a complement to its range of Value Line vacuum ejectors. The new aluminum block mounted ejector is dimensioned to emulate a popular ejector format, making it easy to install into many existing systems.

Hingham, MA - Piab is introducing a complement to its range of Value Line vacuum ejectors. The new aluminum block mounted ejector is dimensioned to emulate a popular ejector format, making it easy to install into many existing systems. Offering improved performance and more energy-efficient operation, the ejector is a cost-effective and easy-to-install alternative for operators of basic automated vacuum systems.


Value Line is Piabs economy range for less demanding industrial applications that do not warrant the use of Piabs specialist vacuum solutions. So far, the range has included small, light-weight vacuum ejectors in two different designs - inline or T-design.

"The capacity of the new ejector is twice that of our inline ejectors. But the really clever advantage is that it is designed to slot nicely into existing systems, where it will offer better performance and more energy-efficient operation for the same price as competing ejectors. It is the ultimate win-win solution," comments Joseph Karbassi, Vice President of Piabs Automation Division.

Piabs vacuum ejection technology is based on ejector cartridges that offer improved vacuum performance compared with conventional single-stage ejectors of corresponding size. Hence, energy savings of up to 28 percent can be achieved if the companys Value Line ejectors are used to replace similar ejectors. Designed without flap valves, the ejectors are highly reliable, even in dirty and dusty environments.

The Value Line products offer the low-end of the market what Piab has been delivering to its high-end customers for over 60 years - expertise, innovation, and global, uniform delivery and service. Today, the company serves both ends of the market with its advanced and specialized ejector technology solutions, and its range of more basic, standard ejector products.

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
