Why AirTX Air Amplification Products?
Compressed air is one of the largest energy users in industrial plants. And yet many plants do not know their true cost and it is still a prime area for cost reduction. Compressed Air costs your company 30% to 50% more than it should!

What is the Cost of Compressed Air

1 - 100 Hp compressor cost approximately $35,000 per year to operate.

Power Cost = Hp x 0.746 x hour x rate = $34,800
motor efficiency

OR

Power Cost = Hp x 0.746 x 6,000 x 7 cents/kw = $34,800

Why AiRTX Air Amplification Products?
  • Save money on compressed air 50-90%
  • Increase volume of air flow 90 times
  • Nozzles meet OSHA Standards
  • Relieves duty cycle of air compressor- reduces repair cost
  • Reduce noise levels 50 dBA or more

The problem

Most manufacturing plants use a great deal of compressed air in blowing off the product using uncontrollable straight open tubes or pipes. Example of inappropriate use that is frequently found is a blowing application that uses compressed air to clean, dry surfaces, cool, transport, sort. Apart from wasting compressed air, it also violates OSHA noise and dead ended pressure requirements. What are YOU paying for that outdated Copper Tube, Pipe Nipple or Plastic Nozzle?
