Excellent cold air device. Resists dumping down to very low CFM’s.
Choice of steel (SK) or aluminum (SE) roll-form construction.
Available with square or rectangular neck.
Steel (SK) is available in neck sizes from 6” to 48” in 3-inch increments.
Aluminum (SE) is available in neck sizes from 6” to 24” in 3-inch increments.
