A large volume of surrounding air is induced into the amplifier at point (A) by the action of a small amount of compressed air which enters the annular chamber at point (B) that is then throttled through a small ring nozzle at high velocity and into the inside of the amplifier over a coanda profile. The compressed air stream clings to the coanda profile as it enters the inside walls of the amplifier and thereby creating a vacuum that induces the outside air converting the pressure into amplified airflow. The amplified of airflow leaves at the exit at point (C). Airflow is further amplified downstream at point (D) by entraining additional air from the surroundings at the exit.

Compressed Air Consumption
(Based on gap of 0.002" (.05mm)) Consumption in SCFM. (SLPM)
Both the inlet (vacuum intake) and discharge ends may be ducted for light material and fume conveying applications. Care must be taken to avoid unnecessary restrictions that will cause back pressure or suction resistance that will reduce performance levels. Keep back pressure and resistance to under 2" of water column.
Adjustable Air Amplifier Applications
Replace fans, used for blow-off, cleaning, drying, cooling and conveying.
Remove water, coolant, dust, and scrap in parts manufacturing/assembly operations. Cool enamel and water based paints in parts manufacturing, auto body shops or assembly lines.
Blow off of water from the tops of cans, bottles prior to labeling, ink jetting, palletizing or packaging. Conveying light materials.
Blow off of chemicals or water prior to labeling or packaging.
Remove water from product or packaging.
Part ejection, fume removal, dust and liquid blow off from all types of parts, conveying away waste, ideal for replacing fans in some cooling operations such as tempering glass.
Coolant and other liquid removal on process lines from Aluminum, Steel, Brass or other materials. Dry metals prior to other operations such as plating or polishing. Cool metal parts prior to coating or painting. Coolant mist removal. Boost vacuum systems to remove grinding dust. Cool steel forgings.
Paper & Lumber:
Sawdust removal and control by boosting the vacuum system, dust removal. Trim removal in converting applications.
Dust and scrap blow off. Cool moldings after extrusion, then blow off and dry prior to forming.
Cooling to set some inks, scrap blow off.
Remove liquid prior to labeling or packaging waste removal for solid materials. Extract unfilled capsules by vacuum as they pass on a conveyor.
Scrap and trim removal on textiles to eliminate expensive vacuum systems.
Adjustable Air Amplifier Specifications
Stainless steel or coated aluminum are materials of construction. Three standard outlet (outside) diameters: 1-1/4" (31mm), 2" (51mm), 4" (200mm). Other sizes available upon request.
