Becker Hook and Claw Central Vacuum Systems
Becker Advantage-C Vacuum Systems are oil-less hook and claw central vacuum systems, or dry rotary claw vacuum systems as they are sometimes called. These pneumatic vacuum systems can be designed for industrial or medical use, and are available in various configurations with up to six vacuum pumps.
Our dry hook and claw vacuum systems are ideal for use where any of the following conditions are a problem:
- Where any oil mist, or aerosols, present in the discharge air could contaminate the workplace, or damage roofing membranes.
- Where oil filling, changing, and disposal is an inconvenience or a hazard.
- If oil leaks persist.
- Where water and sewage charges add to your cost of operation. If water pollution is a concern.
- If you would like to minimize your maintenance requirements.
All pumps used on our systems are Becker Manufactured and individually tested at factory before shipping. Becker hook and claw vacuum pumps feature an oil-less/touch-less working chamber. Additional specifications are:
- End vacuum up to 28”Hg (Model Dependent)
- Integrated 2-micron paper inlet filter
- Vacuum relief valve and anti-return valve
- Integrated exhaust silencer box
- Gear Oil sight glass for visual inspection
- Liquid filled vacuum gauges installed at the pump
- Minimal maintenance required
- Single shaft direct drive through coupling
- IE3/NEMA PREMIUM efficiency motors
- TEFC Motors
- 208V/230V/460V/575V – 3-phase motor options
PLUMBING & RECEIVER
All vacuum pumps are plumbed to a manifold and connected to the air receiver. A check valve is installed at the pump inlet to prevent backflow in the system. Ball valves are installed for pump and receiver isolation. One point connection for vacuum plumbing is standard for all Becker systems. Optional manifold and one point connection for exhaust plumbing is available. All air receivers are ASME stamped to code and may have a mounted bypass and drain to allow for manual liquid removal.
NEMA type 3R, 4 & 12 enclosure with UL/CSA listing; mounted and prewired for simplex, duplex, or expandable controls. Panel also includes a 7” touchscreen LCD HMI unit to display system status. HMI provides access to basic system setup settings such as number of active pumps, vacuum high/low setpoints, and min/max run time. Live monitoring of each pump motor’s average amperage and amperage per phase is also available.
PLC control unit offers the following communication services:
- Ethernet/IP slave device
- Modbus TCP
- SMS/email notifications
- Web server (WebVisu)
Hook and Claw Central Vacuum Systems
Tank-mount hook and claw vacuum systems are cost effective systems, offering capabilities adequate for many facilities, while providing the basic functions of automatic operation and convenience provided by the programmable controller. They are compact in design due to the pump being mounted on top of the receiver. Becker’s hook and claw systems are available in simplex or duplex versions, and are available for industrial or medical/surgical use.
Expandable hook and claw vacuum systems utilize Becker’s oil-less/contact-less claw vacuum technology. Pumps, air receiver and control panel are mounted to modular skids to allow for future expansion. They are designed to be easily expandable from any smaller size option up to six pumps, and provide automatic operation and convenience, thanks to the programmable controller. Becker’s expandable hook and claw systems are available in triplex, quadruplex, and sextuplex versions, and are available for industrial or medical/surgical use.
Space saver hook and claw vacuum systems offer a compact footprint for installations where space is restricted. They are cost effective systems, offering capabilities adequate for many facilities, while providing the basic functions of automatic operation and convenience provided by the programmable controller. Becker’s hook and claw systems are available in a duplex version, and are available for industrial or medical/surgical use.
