Vac Quiet Mode
Reduce Noise and Save Energy

By using Vac Quiet Mode and with help from a vacuum reservoir the pre-pump is automatically switched off after reaching a factory pre-set vacuum level. The vacuum reservoir allows the system to be operated for hours without the need of the pre-pump. This results in both the reduction of noise levels and energy consumption.

Benefits

  • More comfortable application
  • High definition imaging
  • Energy-saving
