Airflow Vector have been designing, manufacturing and selling roto-moulded products for the last 30 years. Our extensive experience allows us to create product as varied as Cold Air Induction equipment, Cold Air Induction Air Cleaners, Snorkels, Portable Toilet Systems, Weather-proof Storage Boxes and many other products developed by our R & D section.
We have been selling snorkels nationally and internationally for 26 years, and manufacturing them for the past 23 years. During that time we have undertaken a comprehensive study program into Mould Design, Mould Making, manufacturing techniques using the latest in Computer Aided Design and where necessary even using Imation Technology. Our facilities now allow us to individually design for any application and to computer simulate both the manufacturing phase and test the application of the design shapes, i.e. in the case of snorkel design airflow characteristics.
Our expertise in this field of application is coupled with our undertanding of air flow. Our recent models provide a new technique called Cold Air Induction provided by our propriatory ACAIS system
A combustion engine needs air and fuel to operate. The more air and oxygen flow into the intake manifold, the more efficient is the combustion.
The ACAIS harvests fresh air at roof level where it is the least disturbed. This air contains less contaminant and is cooler than air absorbed from the engine bay. When the air is cooler, it contains more oxygen.
Modern vehicles are fitted with engine management systems; these are computers which measure accurately in real-time all inputs available to the engine to improve its efficiency. Consequently, the availability of cooler air inflow results in more power and torque.
Three main parts constitute an ACAIS: a “hat” we call the “Air Ram”, a Snorkel tube we call the “Body” and an air filter called the PACC. The three parts are designed to complement each other in their efficiency.
COLD AIR INDUCTION EFFECT
This effect improves fuel efficiency while improving also engine power. The snorkel is over sized to provide a air storage. Consequently, the air is pressurised, available immediatly for the engine.
