question re: nuarc UV 26-1ks

Hi everyone...
I was wondering if these units can work just as a vacuum frame, without the UV source. Do they work independent of each other?
Can the UV head be taken off the machine? And just the bottom part, the vacuum frame be used for exposure in the sun?
Much thanks all....
