Air Jets

U.S.Metric

Product Overview

Jets are round-throated air amplifiers: one end provides a strong airflow while the other creates suction as free air is entrained. As the free air is entrained, jets amplify air volume up to 4 times more than the compressed air supplied, resulting in less compressed air usage to deliver the same or greater thrust performance.

Jets are designed to reduce compressed air consumption and noise drastically as compared to open jets, copper tubes and iron or steel pipes without an engineered nozzle. Perfect for all types of blow off, conveying, cooling and drying applications, jets are available in a variety of high and low thrust models. Since they output a more concentrated, targeted volume of air than nozzles, they are ideal for water, solvents or light oil stripping applications. Additionally, because they deliver a precise air flow, jets are ideal for parts movement and ejection, with a focused air flow targeted directly on the parts being moved or ejected. Vortec Jets meet OSHA specification for noise and dead-end pressure.

Benefits

  • Convey small parts without motors or pumps
  • Save time with better blow off and fume extraction capability
  • Up to 4 times blow off power compared to compressed air alone
  • Reduce operating costs due to compressed air usage by up to 75%
  • Reduce noise levels by up to 70% compared to non-amplifying jets

Features

  • Wide range of designs and force/thrust levels
  • Several suction and outlet options (great for fume extraction)
  • Adjustable jets enable varying power/thrust levels for each application
  • Power/thrust levels ranging from 2 – 17 oz-force

Case Studies

Exceeding Expectations: Vortec Creates Custom-Design for Pulp and Paper Industry Application.

Honeywell Solutions’ engineering team came up with an unusual use of Vortec’s air-flow amplifier in their application for the paper and pulp industries. When a Vortec product re-design would have required Honeywell to re-engineer their application, Vortec engineers developed a custom-design product for them instead.
