RJ50A Ringjet

Overview of BECK compressed air components.

1. Ringjets
A range of small, versatile 'bladeless' fans suitable for a wide variety of blowing and extraction applications; typically fume and moisture removal, small particle conveying and cooling.

2. Clustajets
High volume air/fume movers which use an array of aluminium Ringjets mounted inside a mild steel cylinder (alternative materials may be specified). Four models are available with outputs between 765-5270m3/hr (450-3100cfm). Flexible blowing/extract hoses 102mm-305mm (4"-12") in diameter can be attached at each end of ventilator casing.. They are typically used for exhaust fume extraction from large tanks and chambers or fresh air ventilation/cooling of workers in confined spaces. They can also be incorporated into pipelines for gas conveying.

3. Airmisers

Combine economic air usage along with noise reduction offering outputs up to 28-times compressed air input. By diffusing a single, direct compressed air jet they also have significant safety value by preventing embolism. Key uses are for cooling, blowing, drying and, by utilising high thrust, ejecting parts from press tools. A wide variety of flexible suction/blowing hoses are available to handle all ventilation and dust handling duties. Smooth bore heavy-duty hose is required for vacuum and conveying applications. Compressed air hose (high pressure) is available up to 25mm (1") diameter. RIGIFLEX is a unique, stay-put airline hose recommended as a mounting support for Beck Ringjets, Airmisers etc.

4. Airstrips - Linear Air-movers
Airstrips are linear air-movers, providing a laminar flow or air curtain for drying or blowing off waste trimmings of plastic and paper from presses and cutters, cooling chocolate, food products and other conveyor-fed materials. Four models in the range 51mm-305mm (2"-12") have an alloy base and steel top plate. Any length can be achieved by butting together. Special extra long versions (and in other materials) can be manufactured to customers' specifications.

1. RINGJETS| (Air movers & Air amplifiers)



STANDARD MODELS

A range of small, versatile 'bladeless' fans suitable for a wide variety of blowing and extraction applications; typically fume and moisture removal, small particle conveying (pellets, filings and paper trimmings) and cooling.

The standard models incorporate a discharge ribbed hose spigot. Ringjets can be positioned immediately adjacent to the product, typically using the variable position Rigiflex hose accessory. Ringjets can be split through a casing wall (bulkhead mounting).

Special conveyor models incorporate both suction and delivery hose rib spigots and can be used in series to cover greater distances.

Seven models in the standard range have throat diameters from 6mm-75mm (1/4"-3") and achieve outlet air flows from 221-2000m3/hr (130-1100cfm). Ringjets are available in a choice of materials to suit service conditions: aluminium, PVC, stainless steel, brass.

RINGJET CONVEYORS
Are similar to the Standard Range except they have a hose connection spigot on both intake and discharge side.


Ringjets can also be used for:

Rapid cooling of castings Cooling plastic injection moldings
Removal of welding fumes Removal of paint fumes
Drying crates after washing Cooling paper products
Quick drying of chocolates Fresh air delivery
Extracting swarf and oil mist Removal of paper dust and trim

2. CLUSTA-JETS

High volume air/fume movers which use an array of aluminium Ringjets mounted inside a mild steel cylinder
(alternative materials may be specified).

Four models are available with outputs between 765-5270m3/hr (450-3100cfm). Flexible blowing/extract hoses 102mm-305mm (4"-12") in diameter can be attached at each end of ventilator casing. They are typically used for exhaust fume extraction from large tanks and chambers or fresh air ventilation/cooling of workers in confined spaces. They can also be incorporated into pipelines for gas conveying.

Clusta-Jets can be used to remove toxic fumes from enclosed spaces. Eg.welding in tanks, working underground, storage tanks, tunnels, anywhere where air needs to be moved in or out.

3. AIRMISER AIR NOZZLES


Airmiser Nozzles combine economic air usage along with noise reduction offering outputs up to 28-times compressed air input. By diffusing a single, direct compressed air jet they also have significant safety value by preventing embolism. Key uses are for cooling, blowing, drying and, by utilising high thrust, ejecting parts from press tools. The range comprises of eight models in aluminium with attachment diameters from 1/8"-1"BSP. For accurate, stable positioning the Rigiflex hose accessory is recommended.

AIRMISER nozzles have a total effective air output of up to 25 times the compressed air input and the STANDARD nozzle SA can replace the nozzle normally used on many blowguns to produce greater thrust with increased safety.

Instead of a single hole at the nozzle tip which could permit a high pressure air jet to impinge directly onto the operators' skin, a series of annular orifices at the base of the nozzle induce an additional flow of ambient air at relatively low pressure to provide high total thrust with increased safety. The flow of air through a series of annular orifices reduces the possibility of metallic chips rebounding back towards the operator.

The high thrust relative to their size of the MINI AIRMISER Model MA and the BLOW HARD AIRMISER Model BH make them ideal for Cooling, Ejecting Parts from tooling, Drying and Blowing. They consume less air than an ordinary nozzle with reduced noise levels. With input pressure in the region of 6 bar gauge (90 PSI) typical noise levels with AIRMISER nozzles are well below 80 dBA. To obtain optimum performance with minimum air consumption install a Filter/Regulator with pressure gauge in the compressed air supply line to the AIRMISER.

When using multiple arrays of AIRMISER nozzles ensure that all the pipe-work and the Filter/Regulator is of adequate size to handle the amount of compressed air required.

Substitution of AIRMISER nozzles for open jets in addition to reducing noise will produce substantial savings in compressed air consumption, especially when multiple arrays are required.

The Model MA uses less compressed air at 4 bar (60 PSI) than a 1.6mm (1/16") open jet but produces considerably more thrust due to entertainment of ambient air.

The performance of Model BH when compared to that of a 6mm (1/4") open jet shows that it provides substantially more effective thrust at about one third the compressed air consumption.

IMPROVED SAFETY & REDUCED AIR CONSUMPTION
