RT2 Resin Trap

Same tough features as our big resin traps and machines, in a very compact package
SKU: RT2 Trap Category:


Miniature resin trap and controls for smaller scale resin infusion

The RT2 is the resin trap and control module from our MICRO vacuum system. 

This heavy duty miniature resin trap will suit manufacturers of high quality small infused parts who already have a suitable pump, but wish to upgrade the vacuum integrity of their controls and resin trap and minimise trap cleaning time. The trap can be mounted on a flat base panel and will suit vacuum pumps with a capacity up to about 12 m3/h (7 cfm).









For an example mounting arrangement using the Vacmobile MICRO 8/2, please see below:

Trap Lid Options








Steel Lid for vacuum bagging                                                                                                                                                                                        Glass lid for infusion

Absolute gauge

An absolute pressure gauge is easily fitted to an RT2 Trap.






VPE ultrasonic leak detector

Ultrasonic leak detectors enable small vacuum leaks inaudible to the human ear to be detected and physically located.  Using a leak detector will considerably speed up the location and repair of vacuum bag leaks.
