Adjustable Air Amplifiers / Blowers (CDF Series)

CDF Series Air Amplifiers / Blowers
Vaccon Air Amplifiers easily and safely handle porous objects that many consider too challenging to handle with vacuum. Vaccon air amplifiers are field-adjustable to meet your process or product specifications. With its inline, straight through design – dirt and debris pass right through, there’s no clogging, no downtime.

CDF Series for Air Blower Applications: High Output Flow

The CDF Series vacuum pump efficiently generates a high vacuum flow and a high exhaust flow using a small amount of compressed air, with amplification ratios up to 40:1 (output to input). CDF's are ideal for applications that require high levels of flow such as the rapid evacuation of fumes, blow drying wet materials, or to cool hot areas and/or materials.

CDF Series for Material Handling Applications: High Vacuum Flow

CDF Series air amplifiers generate high vacuum flow, overcoming leaks inherent in handling porous objects such as cardboard, foam or fabric. CDF air amplifiers safely transfer irregularly shaped items, with or without a vacuum cup. Rigid cups, for use with the CDF Series are available specialty materials such as UHMW polyethylene, Teflon® and Delrin®.
 
For chemical compatibility, heat and environmental requirements, food and medical applications, custom materials are available: stainless steel, Delrin®, Teflon®, PVC, and more. A solenoid valve may be incorporated for instant on/off control so that CDF’s operate only when air is needed.
