Georgia Pacific, LLC (Antioch, Ca) contacted JetAir Technologies last year about using a high-speed centrifugal blower and air knife to help remove fiberglass particles from large gypsum panels. GP' state-of-the-art gypsum technology replaces the traditional paper element of wallboard with a "fiberglass mat," adding to the stability and sustainability of the finished product. When the boards are cut a fine dusting of fiberglass that is very hard to remove is spread across the surface of the boards.
Catalytic Solutions turned to JetAir to develop a low maintenance system to control coating thickness on their innovative automotive exhaust systems. JetAir Technology’s belt-free Direct Drive Blower design coupled with a modern turbine provided Catalytic the air flow performance needed to precisely control their coating process, avoiding the costly maintenance and changeover expenses common with competitor's high-speed belt-drive centrifugal systems. In addition, because JetAir systems are Variable Speed Controlled, Catalytic could adjust and pre-set speeds to eliminate any line confusion or process variables resulting in increased production and quality.
