  • All ZVA units with the -08 suffix have an 8 inch reach (discharge from mounting point to tube end). Longer reaches are also available up to 95 inches in 3 inch increments. ZVA requires access of 1/2 inch by 3 inches either horizontally or vertically. Maximum temperature for the tubing is ambient (no more than 90°F or 30°C).
  • 220v, 50 Hz European models available by adding "E" to the end of the part number (not for use in the United States)
  • Motor power requirements are very much dependent upon individual situations and can not be exactly determined. If this is information that is being used to set a limit for a fuse, then a professional fuse engineer should be consulted because there are many types to choose from.
