Vortec Air Flow Amplifiers extract smoke, fumes, and debris with high-flow, bladeless blowers that take ordinary compressed air and amplify it up to 60-fold, in unducted applications, with no moving parts.
They are easily mounted, ducted, and moved, the company says, and with adjustable airflow and output they can be tailored to the project at hand. With no electrical requirements, they can be mounted wherever there is compressed air, and their operation meets OSHA noise requirements. Vortec Air Flow Amplifiers are available in multiple sizes, in either aluminum or stainless steel, to deliver flow rates from 32 to 2300 scfm. In addition to ventilating and exhausting welding fumes, soldering and machine smoke, tank fumes, and other gases, they can be used for de-dusting of grain, trimming operations such as paper or cloth, removal of metal chips, sawdust, and scrap, or conveying of plastic pellets, small parts, capsule, powders, and more. They can adapt from extraction and ventilation of fumes and gases to blow-off applications, such as drying of parts, cooling of moldings, castings, and food products.
