VAC Innovation’s two-part, through-bag vacuum connector with 50mm diameter base plate (75mm diameter also available), fitted with a 90° elbow and ¼” BSPP brass male vacuum plug (viton seals).
The Vac Connector (vacuum breach unit) consists of a round, chamfered edge, aluminium base; a steel upper body and a high temperature silicone washer. The washer is retained on the underside of the steel body. The aluminium base (which has a female ¼” BSPP thread) is placed immediately on top of the breather fabric and under the bagging film.
The steel body (which has a male ¼” BSPP thread on the underside) is aligned with the aluminium base and is screwed into the base whilst self-cutting through the vacuum bagging film.
This configuration is an ideal solution where vertical clearance is reduced, i.e. between layers or trays in a racked loading system.
(Available with a stainless steel plug in lieu of brass if required)
