Vacuum Generator Holds Computer Monitor for Recycling

A customer who has begun to recycle CRT monitors was looking for a way to hold down the monitors as a machine cut the housing so the internal components could be exposed and recycled. Since the monitors were all shapes and sizes, the screen globe was a common feature which could be used for holding the monitors in place. An EXAIR Model 810003M E-Vac with Straight Through Muffler and Model 900760 5" (127mm) Round Suction Cup were chosen to provide the solution. The E-Vac pulls a vacuum on to the suction cup which holds the glass screens in place while a tool cuts the CRT in half. This solution has eliminated manual adjustment of mechanical chucks for each different shape of monitor and saved a great deal of time on this process.
