Venturi pump rapid cycling

  1. Feb 8, 2014 #1
    I am looking to cycle on/off rapidly a venturi pump. I am using a solenoid valve but is there a recommendation for a quicker valve type or regulator? Speed is my most important requirement. Thank you.

    What fluid are you pumping, gas or liquid?
    What is your driver fluid, gas or liquid?
    I presume you want to generate short, sharp bursts of driver fluid. How sharp?

    Air. Yes, I need to create very short, sharp bursts of air into a venturi vacuum pump. I need to cycle about 7 times per second.
