Air Casters

Air Casters

An air caster is a pneumatic lifting device used to move heavy loads on flat, non-porous surfaces. Its operation is similar to a hovercraft, as it uses a thin layer of air as a way to float a very small distance off the ground. Compressed air enters an airbag shaped like a torus, and when the bag is filled it creates an airtight seal with the ground, and forces more air into the centre of torus, eventually causing the air to flow over the bag and to raise the load above the ground. The compre...More
 

Air Curtains

Air Curtains

An Air Door/Air Curtain creates an invisible barrier of high velocity air to separate different environments. Air enters the unit through the intake. It is then compressed by scrolled fan housings and forced through a nozzle which is directed at the open doorway. The system utilizes centrifugal fans mounted on direct driven, dual shafted motors. The result is a uniform air screen across the opening with enough force to stop winds up to 25 mph. Note: When there is an in draft caused by an exha...More
