World Turtle Day is May 23rd 🐢

World Turtle Day is May 23rd, Simmatic Automation are delighted to promote VMECA’s New Mega Turtle Pump with optional Air Saving Kit.

This totally unique multistage vacuum pump uses VMECA cartridge technology to achieve high vacuum flows up to 1364l/min max vacuum to -93kPa at 4bar. The integral pleated polyester filter gives a large surface area and has the option of reverse air cleaning. The small volume area of the pump and filter gives fast response times in evacuation. Optional extras include make / break solenoid valves (self-cleaning filter), air saving kit and digital vacuum switch. With all of the optional extras the Mega Turtle Pump reduces costs in installation, design and assembly of complex vacuum circuits. This air operated multistage vacuum pump is manufactured in PPS reducing the overall weight and size significantly compared to aluminium bodied COAX type alternatives with external filters. With no moving parts the VMECA Mega Turtle Vacuum Pump requires minimal maintenance. The pump is easily dismantled, cartridges and filter elements can be removed within minutes.

Why not take advantage of the optional air saving kit? This allows the pump to achieve a pre-set and adjustable vacuum depth, which then turns off the make solenoid, so the unit consumes no further compressed air until the vacuum level drops -11 kPa when it cuts the air supply back in, recovering the losses. This means the pump can benefit from huge savings in compressed air. In a well-sealed system, picking non-porous parts, the savings can be beyond 80%. the pump only makes 56 dB noise while consuming compressed air and remains silent for the rest of the cycle.

This beautiful Loggerhead Sea Turtle, known as Caretta Caretta was filmed on holiday in Kefaloinia – Argostoli harbour, pre Covid-19
