What is an Air Amplifier?
Air Amplifier General Supreme Air Products
An Amplifier will increase airflow up to 30 times at the outlet by entraining the surrounding air. It also has an infinitely adjustable gap which can regulate the air consumption and outflow from a “breeze” to a “blast”.

How does a Air Amplifier work?
(1) Compressed air enters the Air Generating unit through a female NPT inlet. It is forced out through a small adjustable gap and travels over a series of angles into the air chamber at a high velocity.
(2) The airflow exits the air chamber over a ‘coanda’ profile, thereby creating a vacuum which entrains the surrounding air into the primary airstream.
(3) This combined flow of primary & surrounding air is then exhausted from the Air Amplifier at a high velocity and high volume.
Air Amplifiers are easily mounted by a hose and clamp or by using our Air Amplifier Mount found in the “Accessories” section. Airflow rate is easily adjusted on the amplifier by loosening the locking ring and turning the insert in a clockwise direction to minimize the output or counterclockwise direction to maximize the output. Air amplifiers are preset to .002” gap from the factory.
