Much like the popular song from decades ago that was about “money for nothing”, EXAIR can provide you with “air for free”. What we mean by this is that when you choose to use our Super Air Amplifiers, you will produce a large volume of air while only requiring a small amount of compressed air. This is because Air Amplifiers amplify total output flow up to 25 times by entraining (pulling in) ambient air.
So just how does the EXAIR’s Super Air Amplifier do this? By utilizing our patented design (Patent # 5402938) that incorporates a special shim to maintain the air slots precisely. The compressed air is released toward the center of the Super Air Amplifier which creates a constant, high velocity outlet flow across the entire cross sectional area. This
The amplification occurs by entraining most of the ambient air from the back of the Super Air Amplifier. Another small volume of air is added again as the air exits the Super Air Amplifier further increasing the amplification.
Super Air Amplifiers that have outlet diameter’s of 3/4″ (19mm), 1 1/4″ (32mm), 2” (51mm) and 4” (102mm) are supplied with a .003” (0.08mm) shim which is ideal for most applications, however there is the optional .006” (.15mm) and .009” (.23mm) if more air volume and force is needed. The 8” (203mm) Super Air Amplifier comes standard with a .009” (.23mm) shim and for increased performance we offer an optional .015” (.39mm). The chart below explains how to determine the total output flow and air consumption at different operating pressures for each Super Air Amplifier model.
When you need “air for free” or more accurately stated, to get all you can from every SCFM of compressed air you produce, put the EXAIR Super Air Amplifier to work in your facility!
