Product Description


The Vac Pro™ venturi device converts air pressure from your air compressor into vacuum. These venturi generators 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 a venturi vacuum has no moving parts, this is a great air-powered vacuum source that is reliable and efficient.pg-venturi-warranty.gif

This is a replacement part for the Project: V2™ vacuum press kit. No instructions are included with this part.

  • Powerful design creates up to 25.5" of Hg pressure at sea level
  • No moving parts make this a very reliable vacuum source
  • Air feed port uses convenient 1/4" NPT fittings
  • Black anodized aluminum body for exceptional durability
  • Requires only 80 PSI but will operate with up to 105 PSI
  • Scientific design permits foreign particles to pass through the system without clogging
  • Straight-through silencer included for maximum evacuation speed
  • Lifetime warranty

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.

Why does the venturi require more CFM at higher PSI? Shouldn't it be lower CFM at higher PSI?
We have two topics that are being co-mingled. The first is how much air flow can a compressor generate when the flow is unrestricted, and the second, how much air is flowing out of the compressor when it is connected to a device that restricts its flow.

This question makes a valid point about compressors having higher output flow rate (CFM) at lower pressures. The key here is the conditions where this is true. Higher flow rates at lower operating pressures result from having little to no restriction on the output of the compressor. As the restriction increases, the pressure in the compressed air line will increase and the flow decreases.

When air leaves a compressed air line and shoots unrestricted into the atmosphere, the pressure in the air stream, once it exits the compressed air line, is 0 PSI. To prove this, place a "T" fitting at the exit of the compressed air hose and place a gauge in the leg of the "T" that is 90 degrees to the axis of flow. Provided that the through bore diameter of the "T" is the same size or larger than the inside diameter of the compressed air line, the gauge will read 0 PSI. If you place a ball valve on the outlet side of the "T" and slowly close the valve you will see the gauge show increased pressure and the amount of air leaving the "T" will decrease. Once the ball valve is fully closed, the gauge will show full pressure and no air will be flowing out of the "T".

When there is a venturi at the end of the compressed air line a very different condition is created than what is noted above because the air is not allowed to exit freely to the atmosphere. The venturi has a limiting orifice which presents a significant restriction like the ball valve in the example above.

When a venturi is connected to the compressor, a specific amount of compressed air will pass through the limiting orifice inside the venturi.  When the input pressure is increased, more compressed air will flow through that orifice because there is more force being applied to each air molecule which results in more air molecules fitting through the orifice.

In summary, when there is a restriction in the system, a higher compressed air pressure will result in more compressed air leaving the compressor. The compressor will not produce more flow at higher pressures however more air will leave the compressor and flow through the venturi.

  1. Works Perfect

    Great product and always great service. If your goal is to create a vacuum from your air compressor search no more and buy this. Works exactly as designed. The output tube is a muffler so its pretty quite.


  2. This one is better than the old one.

    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.


  3. What A Cool Gadget

    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!


  4. A Superb System

    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.
