X-Stream Wind Tunnel

Go high tech with your technology and science curricula with this adjustable-speed, quiet-as-a-breeze wind tunnel. No louder than a room fan, X-Stream requires no hearing protection. When paired with the Vehicle Platform Sensor (VPS) and Stinger Mount Sensor, the X-Stream can measure forces on objects as diverse as dragsters, airfoils, rockets, and geometric shapes.

The X-Stream is quality made too. A low-restriction flow straightener, combined with a 6:1 compression ratio intake bell, converts turbulent airflow into smooth, laminar airflow for repeatable test results. The large testing chamber accommodates a variety of objects, yet the unit is compact enough to sit on a six-foot table. Side and top polycarbonate window panels permit more light to enter the chamber and provide a better view.

This wind tunnel’s handheld control unit lets you adjust the speed of the air moving through the test chamber (up to 40 mph), and the included manometer indicates the actual speed. As air moves over an object, the control unit’s LCD panel displays the magnitude of the forces.

Features of the X-Stream Wind Tunnel include:

  • Quiet – great for classrooms and lab areas
  • Ratio-metrically designed for accuracy
  • Laminar flow provides zero-turbulence testing.
  • Only six feet long – fits in any classroom
  • Extra-large 19" x 11-1/2" x 11-1/2" test chamber – view from both sides and top
  • Side panels are removable and customizable.
  • Convenient handheld control unit
  • Variable speed from 0-40 mph
  • Rugged ABS construction

Requires one available serial port. Note: Requires VPS or Stinger Mount to operate.

X-Stream Wind Tunnel with Vehicle Platform Sensor

The Vehicle Platform Sensor (VPS) is an exceptional addition to your CO2 dragster program. When a model vehicle is positioned inside the testing chamber of the X-Stream Wind Tunnel, the VPS simultaneously measures lift forces on front and rear axles and front drag on the vehicle. Data is displayed on the handheld controller or ported to a computer using optional X-Stream Data Acquisition software. Includes hardware and instructions. Software sold separately.

Vehicle Platform Sensor (VPS) system offers several great features:

  • Use with CO2 dragsters and model vehicles
  • On-board display for instantaneous feedback
  • Simultaneous measurement of front drag and lift on both axles
  • Adjustable sensing plates accommodate a wide range of vehicle designs.

X-Stream Wind Tunnel with Stinger Mount Sensor

Measure drag on a variety of objects placed inside the testing chamber of the X-Stream Wind Tunnel including geometric shapes, vehicles, airfoils, bottle rockets, and solid-fuel rockets. The Stinger Mount Sensor also measures lift on wings! Includes instructions, hardware, and geometric objects. Data is displayed on the handheld controller or ported to a computer using optional X-Stream Data Acquisition software, sold separately.

Stinger Mount Sensor system offers even more features:

  • Use with CO2 dragsters (front drag only), rockets, airfoils, and geometric shapes
  • On-board display for instantaneous feedback
  • Versatile for many science and technology applications
  • Data-graphing and analysis software available

Sometimes, aerodynamic concepts can be tricky to teach. The FLO Visualization Tunnel enables you to visually demonstrate aerodynamics with a compact, desk-size wind tunnel perfect for classroom use!

Place an object in the wind tunnel and turn it on while directing a fog through the tunnel. Watch as the airflow runs across the length of the object, providing a great visual learning experience. Use objects such as airfoils, geometric shapes, model airplanes, and more. A magnetic platform attached to an outside gear enables you to rotate the test objects while the wind tunnel is running. You can also change the wind speed of the tunnel to test different variables.

Includes:

  • 1 control box
  • 1 fog generator
  • 6 magnetic base mounts
  • 3 1/8" dowel rods 18" long
  • 1 50 mL bottle of fog fluid
  • 2 oral syringes
  • 1 foam airfoil
  • 1 12 V power supply
  • 2 adapter cords
  • 1 smoke rake
  • 1 Safety Data Sheet
  • 1 user guide

$1,525.00

Fog machines are valuable flow-visualization tools, and this handheld version is the best we’ve created!

The FLO Fog Generator injects a fog stream into a wind tunnel to test the aerodynamics of objects such as drag racers. It is a cleanable unit that can be easily opened to wipe away residue – plus, it operates without generator tubes. Includes the fogger unit and one bottle of fog fluid.

Note: Fog fluid (42312) is only compatible with the FLO Fog Generator (42180).

$250.00

The Vehicle Platform Sensor and the Stinger Mount Sensor are also available as separate items. If you choose to include just one of them now with your X-Stream Wind Tunnel, you can upgrade your system later.
