TEL 70 TWO METER AIR TRACK
TEL 70 TWO METER AIR TRACK
The air track is constructed from an aluminum extrusion of hollow triangular cross section. Air is fed into one end of the closed extrusion and escapes through four rows of 0.09 cm diameter holes drilled along the length of the track. This escaping air provides virtually friction-free support for the aluminum gliders which fit over the outside surface of the track. A full length metric tape is set on one side of the extrusion. The other side of the track has a groove for spark paper. The air tracks are extruded from carefully designed dies, heat treated to remove residual stress, and selected for straightness. The surface of the track is hand finished and clear anodized to provide a hard, durable surface thus providing a trouble free linear track throughout its lifetime.

Gliders for the air track have been designed with the bottom edge of the glider skirt thicker than the skirt itself to reduce the likelihood of damage by careless handling. Strengthening this point increases the useful life of the glider.

The air track stands out as one of the most versatile and useful pieces of physics teaching equipment available today.

TEL 218 AIR SOURCE
TEL 218 AIR SOURCE
TEL 218 Air Source
This quiet and compact air source has been redesigned to improve its sound absorbing characteristics. It will operate one air track at a pressure of 6.5 kPa or 2 air tracks at 4.4 kPa. A single 2 m hose is included.
TEL 218$617.00



TEL 211 Air Hose
A 2 m flexible air hose with end fitting to attach to the Air Source and either the Basic or Two Meter Air Track. This hose is required if connecting two tracks to a single Air Source.
