FAQs: Adjustable Air Amplifier
Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions relating to our Adjustable Air Amplifier. If you need additional help with your application and/or can't find an answer to your question, please call our factory at 1-705-770-4455 or email an Application Engineer at email@example.com.
- 1. Can my compressed air pressure be increased with an Air Amplifier?
- No. The Adjustable Air Amplifier only amplifies volume, not pressure. The outlet pressures are well below 1 PSIG. The Air Amplifier takes energy from a small volume of compressed air to produce its high velocity, high volume, low pressure output airflow.
- 2. How do I mount the Air Amplifier?
- A rigid air pipe is the optimal way to mount the Air Amplifier. The rigid air pipe will easily hold up to the very large air flow created.
- 3. Can I connect the cold end of a Vortex Tube to an Air Amplifier?
- No. The Air Amplifier would restrict the air flow of the Vortex Tube to the point where back-pressure would limit the cooling capacity of the Vortex Tube. The cold end of the Vortex Tube should not be subjected to a backpressure in excess of 5 PSIG.
- 4. Id' like to attach ducting to the Air Amplifier, how much ducting is ok?
- We recommend a maximum of 15' of ducting on the exhaust side of the Air Amplifier and a maximum of 5' of duct on the intake side of the Air Amplifier.
