Thread Guard Needle Cooler

Product Overview

The Vortec Thread Guard was designed specifically for industrial sewing applications. It keeps needles cool to reduce heat-related needle breakage and thread burning. The air stream is especially effective on difficult sewing surfaces such as belt loops and waist bands; or on tough materials like denim or canvas. Cold air temperature and flow rate are preset to 10 deg F (-12 deg C) and 4 scfm (113 slpm).
