Vacuum Pumps

APD Series  Vacuum Pumps allow for the conveying of free-flowing pelletized plastic materials and regrind using vacuum receivers integrated into a central conveying system. APD pumps are designed for 24 hour, continuous operation and are recommended for most conveying applications. AEC is able to provide several types of ultra-compact vacuum power units to suit your conveying needs. 

The APD Series uses a high efficiency, positive-displacement vacuum pump and can be utilized to convey pellets and regrind over long distances up to 500 equivalent feet. 

APDB vacuum pumps have the same features as the APD but include an exclusive non-reversing air valve system to reverse air flow and clean the pump filter.
