We inflate buoys faster!
09 March 2010The University of Hertfordshire and Beckair have been working on rapid inflation and deflation of marker buoys for the Formula 1 of powerboat racing.
Two final year engineering students, Adam Caffrey and Scott Smith are working with Mel Wilby of Cardinal Fluid Systems on rapid inflation and deflation of powerboat buoys. Mel is former race team manager for Sunseeker boats and his son Andy races powerboats in P1 meetings around the world.
The use of novel aerodynamic devices called Coanda Ringjets form the basis of the work and an inflation and deflation time of around five minutes is the aim. An innovative approach is necessary as health and safety issues exist in electrical driven blowers that are currently used in hazardous environments. Adam and Scott hope to visit one of the P1 racing events in Europe to trial their system.
The Ringjets and industrial experience are being provided by Beckair, market leader in compressed air systems. They are based in Elstree, Hertfordshire and are involved with the University in a very successful Knowledge and Transfer Partnership.
Machinery of Excellence
30 November 2009Beckair's specially profiled Ringjet Air Amplifiers have been incorporated into an innotively designed water removal system, the Secomak Tornado. The Ringjet Air Amplifiers are utilised to create powerful pulses of suction which remove water from containers and packaging.
The Secomak Tornado which is a product of Secomak Solutions has been recognised in the 2009 Machinery of Excellence category at the Starpack Awards.
The Starpack Awards is the premier UK annual scheme recognising innovation in packaging design and technology.
Beckair's Airsaver control Unit is also integrated for energy saving as it provides intelligent 'supply on demand' control. Simply stating, it switches of the air supply when it is not needed helping to eliminate compressed air wastage, lowering energy consumption and costs.
Save energy and minimise compressed air costs - NOW!
27 November 2009The Airsaver control unit developed by energy saving experts Beckair (the compressed air specialist division of Secomak Ltd) is a compressed air control device designed to switch off the air supply when it is not needed.
Any waste of compressed air is eliminated which lowers energy consumption and cost. It has timed functions which combine to give ‘supply on demand’ operation. The air supply stops when a gap occurs in the containers on a conveyor or when a container stops in front of the sensor. The stop signal can be delayed to allow the last container to pass through a machine by means of an adjustable timer.
The Airsaver can be used with a variety of sensors. Start up is instantaneous once a moving object is sensed again. One Airsaver unit can operate up to 3 valves. The sensor unit operates from a 24v DC supply and a power supply can be provided with options for both 110v and 230v AC.
Payback time is typically within two to three months of use. It is easily mounted onto existing installations and is protected to IP65, so it can be used in most environments.
High performance ventilation and extraction with the Beckair Clustajet
02 February 2009The Beckair Clustajet Ventilator
range, from process drying specialists Secomak, a compressed air operated fan,
is now available.
The Clustajet has no rotating fan
blades or motors, is flameproof and virtually maintenance free. The unit can be
used for blowing and extraction applications via standard size flexible hoses.
The Clustajets use multiples of
Beck Ringjet Air Amplifiers (themselves bladeless and motorless fans) fed from a
common air manifold. The whole unit is constructed in a robust steel casing and
the design is based on space rocket launch vehicle principles.
For a given airflow, theBeckairClustajet is lighter in weight and
smaller than an equivalent explosion – proof electric fan, as well as producing
less noise. The Clustajet can be used in hazardous areas, such as ventilating
sewers, tunnels, manholes, fuel tanks silos, vats and similar spaces requiring
the transport of air, dust, fumes, or dangerous gases over long distances. Other
Industries include Welding, Shipbuilding, Construction and Utilities.
Several Clustajets can be
connected in series by rigid or flexible tubes connected to either end of the
main body. This arrangement can be used in reverse to supply atmospheric air
from an uncontaminated source into the working area – taking special precautions
that the compressor is sited remotely and that it is delivering compressed
The spacing between Clustajets
arranged in series can vary according to the straightness of the ducting, the
number of bends, the smoothness of the duct bore and the amount of vertical
lift, if any, that is involved. As a guide assume that each 25 metres of duct
will require one Clustajet. For direct venting or tanks, flanged versions are
available. read more ...

Beckair Neublade Offers Superior Drying With Low Energy Consumption And Ultra-Quiet Operation
16 March 2007
Beckair’s Neublade is ideal for drying, cleaning, cooling and containing in many processing applications in the food, beverage, brewing and other manufacturing industries.
With an energy consumption only 1/3 that of standard nozzles and blades, the Neublade is also much quieter (only 65dB), offering users considerable cost savings with whisper-quiet operation. Working like an air knife but using compressed rather than blown air, the key to the Neublade's performance is the way the air leaves the strip (patent pending), creating a narrow, extremely powerful stream of air.
Easy to mount on existing installations, the Neublade has no moving parts so is entirely maintenance free. There is also a choice of air entry for maximum flexibility. Manufactured from extruded, anodised aluminium it is available in any length up to two metres and is supplied with a ‘quick-fix’ hose connector. read more ...
