Vacuum Pump has no moving parts or heat generation.

Press Release Summary:

With smart design, P6040 pump features COAX® technology that enables low suction in small package and allows for mounting close to point-of-suction. Pump generates flow for blow function at low pressure that protects sensitive products from static charge, while blow air is used for dividing thin sheets of material such as plastic film or paper. Suited for most industrial vacuum applications, unit features anodized aluminum housing to withstand demanding environments.

PIAB's New P6040 Provides a Modular Solution in a Smart Design

PIAB, a global leader in industrial vacuum technology, introduces its P6040 pump range. Featuring patented COAX® technology, the P6040 can reduce energy costs by up to 25% or more compared to other methods of generating vacuum. With flexible mounting options, an extensive performance range and optional control functions, the P6040 is highly adaptable and well suited for most industrial vacuum applications.

With its smart design, the P6040 offers low and powerful suction in a small package due to COAX® technology. This allows the pump to be mounted close to the point-of-suction, resulting in smaller pump requirements with lessened energy needs. A natural extension of PIAB's P6010 pumps, the P6040's operating efficiency is further optimized with integrated control options like Energy Saving (ES), helping companies reduce carbon footprint and improve conservation efforts.

Since COAX® technology puts energy to maximum use, it results in reduced compressed air needs and low noise levels for the P6040, providing a peaceful working atmosphere. Further improving the environment, while also protecting sensitive products from static charge, is the pump's blow function. As compressed air is cooled, blow-out air is also cooled.

To ensure reliable separation, blow air is used for dividing thin sheets of material like plastic film or paper. The P6040 generates a strong flow for blow function at low pressure. When compressed air expands through the COAX® cartridge, intake vacuum flow is added to the flow of the air. Thus, one normal liter of compressed air results in as much as five liters of blow air.

The modular P6040 features an anodized aluminum housing to withstand even the most demanding environments. Upgrading existing equipment for better performance is simple, while using the P6040 on new machines ensures trouble-free operation in the most economical way. With no moving parts or heat generation, and virtually no maintenance required, downtime and work stoppage are drastically reduced.

About PIAB

Established in 1951, PIAB designs innovative solutions that improve the productivity and working environment of vacuum users around the world. PIAB manufacturers a complete line of vacuum pumps, vacuum accessories, vacuum conveyors and suction cups for a variety of automated material handling and factory automation processes. PIAB utilizes COAX®, the next dimension in vacuum technology, in many of its original products and solutions. COAX® is an advanced technology for creating vacuum with compressed air. COAX® cartridges are smaller, more efficient and more reliable than conventional ejectors, and can be integrated directly into machinery. This allows for the design of a flexible, modular vacuum system. For more information about PIAB vacuum solutions for a diverse range of applications, visit
