GentleAir for Blown Fiber

GENTLE AIR BLOWN FIBER BLOWING MACHINE

Now you can depend on the same GMP quality as our larger machines in a new smaller package… The Gentle Air uses compressed air to install the fiber. Coupled with the driven roller is a precision clutch that you can dial in your custom torque from zero to infinity. The rollers, powered by most types of cordless drills (not included), control the blown fiber as it is propelled into the microduct. An electronic monitoring system provides read-outs of speed and distance.

The design of the Gentle Air provides for quick and easy component changes for different cable or duct sizes. Its compact size and portable maneuverability make the Gentle Air ideally suited for external or in-building use.

The Gentle Air uses compressed air to install the cable. The rollers, powered by most types of cordless drills (not included), control the microfiber as it is propelled into the microduct.

We suggest using a variable speed drill with an adjustable torque setting powered by an 18-20 volt battery. We further suggest a brush-less type drill manufactured by an industrial-grade manufacturer.
