VacTrac® Plus Flexibility Chart
One of the primary benefits of the Sterling VacTrac® Plus Series is the sheer customization, as the number of pumps and receiver stations is configurable to meet changing factory needs.

Within each offering, the system is easily adaptable and can be updated based on future operation requirements. The VacTrac® Plus allows companies to customize their configuration of pumps, stations, and advanced control features – unlike other competitive, non-flexible conveying controllers, which have a fixed ratio of pumps and receiver stations.
