MISSISSAUGA -- More than 27 years ago, the original Becker VTLF rotary vane vacuum pump was launched into the CNC router hold-down market and became the world’s most popular pump with well over 50,000 units currently operating worldwide. The VTLF was the only pump that worked well in applications where dirt and dust are present outperforming all other pumps on the market, according to the company. Becker Pumps will be exhibiting in Booth 1437 at WMS 2019, October 31 to November 2 at the International Centre. View the entire exhibitor list.
The updated VTLF 2 Series features a clear filter cover that permits visual inspection of the filter without having to remove the cover. The inlet filter has been enlarged by 50% to reduce the need for filter changes. Cooler running, this pump extends vane life lowering downtime and maintenance costs. An inlet check valve is included to prevent backward vane rotation to eliminate premature vane wear.
The VTLF is also notorious for its exterior design that has a striking resemblance to the Starship Enterprise. The updated version that Becker will be reintroducing at the WMS show includes two new technologies: the BRD-60 cyclonic filter and the clear filter.
The BRD-60 cyclonic filter is a simple and cost effective way to prevent costly, premature vane wear or, worse yet, bearing failure.
The clear filter housing is made of a clear polycarbonate that shows if the element is dirty or clogged allowing maintenance staff a visual inspection without stopping production.
In addition to the two new filter technologies, Becker will introduce their Becker Genuine Replacement parts program for longer vane life and their new Loaner Pump Program.
