What Are Adjustable Air Amplifiers?
Force and flow for the Adjustable Air Amplifier is changed by turning the exhaust end (with the knurled ring loose) to open or close the continuous air gap. When desired performance is obtained, the knurled ring can be tightened to lock the flow at that setting. In most cases, a .002" to .004" (0.05mm to 0.10mm) air gap is ideal

How to Determine Adjustable Air Amplifier Total Output Flow And Air Consumption
Total Airflow: From the performance curves (above), determine total output flow for any Adjustable Air Amplifier at any pressure.
Example: A Model 6031 at 60 PSIG (4.1 BAR) supply air pressure has a total output flow of 165 SCFM (4672 SLPM).
Air Consumption: Divide total output flow by the amplification ratio (shown in the table above) to determine air consumption for any Adjustable Air Amplifier at any air pressure.
In the example above, the Model 6031 at 60 PSIG (4.1 BAR) supply air pressure has a total output flow of 165 SCFM (4672 SLPM). Dviding this total flow by its amplification ratio of 16 gives an air consumption of 10.3 SCFM (292 SLPM).
