Vacuum Tweezers

This vacuum tweezer pickup system is designed for various conservation practices, will pick up smaller fragments of wood, metal, gem stones, ceramics, paper and paint flakes.

This vacuum tweezer tool does not require a finger to block a small hole (as with other systems) to create a vacuum. The operation is more convenient for conservators, vacuum is drawn continuously to manipulate fragments into awkward positions, release is simply achieved with the press of a button. The unique wand control valve ensures reliable suction and instantaneous release.

Suction cups are easily changed without dismantling the wand itself. Silicone suction cups are included in diameters 5, 8, 11 & 15mm. An optional set of rigid PTFE suction cups in the same diameters is also available. The PTFE rigid cups will prevent objects with wet adhesives adhering to the vacuum cup when you wish to release the fragment, such as paint flakes.

The vacuum pump is very small, quiet in operation, lightweight, and consumes only 5W of power. An internal filter on the inlet ensures that no particles can enter the pump mechanism. An additional outlet filter (purchased separately) ensures that no particles created by the pump are released into the surrounding air. This makes the pump suitable for class 1 clean rooms. Spare inlet filters are available.

Vacuum pressure is sufficient to lift 150 grams weight and is adjustable from maximum to very gentle pressure.

This high quality wand is manufactured in PTFE, a fluoropolymer resin with exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemicals and corrosion. This allows a high level of cleanliness to be maintained. The unique wand control value ensures reliable suction and instantaneous release. Vacuum is continuously drawn until the button is pressed (press to release).
