The Vac Pro™ venturi device converts air pressure from your air compressor into vacuum. These venturi devices create .8 to 9 CFM of vacuum flow and produce up to 25.5" of Hg of pressure using only 80 PSI of compressed air. Since there are no moving parts, this is a great vacuum source - reliable, efficient and surprisingly quiet.
This is the venturi unit used in Project: V2 vacuum press systems.

Does this venturi include all of the parts to make a vacuum press system?
No. This is the venturi only. Please find the "Vacuum Press Kits" category on our site to see the full kits we offer. The kits include this venturi part.
How does my altitude affect the maximum vacuum level of this venturi?
There is a loss of approximately 1" of Hg for every 1,000 feet above sea level. For example, at 5,000 feet above sea level the most vacuum this venturi will create is 20.5" of Hg. The generally accepted minimum for vacuum pressing a veneer is 17" of Hg.

Review by Gregory W. Hamel
I've been using what I guess is called Project V1 for several years. Recently upgraded to this venturi and it is much improved. This one is quieter and doesnt use nearly as much air as the previous venturi. I'm a retired army engineer and I've come to know a good quality when I see it. This IS good quality.
Review by Tony Hoffman
A buddy of mine built the vacuum press using an old refigerator pump that lasted only a few times. He upgraded to the Vac Pro Plus and it works like a charm. I used it on a bubinga veneer cabinet and it worked great. Now I am going to order the V2 Kit and build one for myself. I cant let him have all the cool gadgets!

I have had the chance of using the V2 kit my friend had to do some wood lamination on a guitar and I must say, it is a superb system. The noise was surprisingly lower than what I had anticipated and the vacuum was really powerful.
