Double K Industries is proud to introduce a New Variable Speed air control. This allows for complete control of the air volume and velocity: You get full high speed down to a very low speed, and everything in between! The new dial control means more flexibility in grooming with the ability to cater the air flow to the animal and your grooming needs. Choose full power for large full coated animals, moderate speeds for ears and drying sensitive areas or medium coated breeds and low air volume for small animals, cats or young/sensitive animals.
• Revolutionary • Two Year Warranty
Two Powerful Motors - 123 cubic feet per minute per motor = 246 cubic feet per minute total at max speed! Dryer produces more air due to the aerodynamic housing design and a smooth hose lining, reducing resistance as air moves through the hose, thereby increasing air volume (and velocity).
Super quiet high impact ABS Clamshell design housing allows easy access to motors and controls for servicing. Dual air filtration protects motors and other components.
Twist on nozzles - All nozzles twist-on to the hoses to prevent "pop-off" that can occur with other forced air dryers. Includes 3 versatile attachments for any drying need - Comes with the unique "air sweep nozzle" for pushing water from the animal's coat! Hoses are crushproof and heat resistant. Durable housing is virtually indestructible and will not rust, dent or crack as metal housings can. The AirMax will retain its beauty much longer than metal dryers.
The AirMax™ is less expensive than comparable dryers, offering you better value. Comes with a two year limited warranty which includes hoses and nozzles. 30 day purchase money back satisfaction guarantee.
Includes 6 foot crush proof hose and multiple nozzles. Comes in blue or black.
Distinctions between the Airmax™ and the Extreme™ dryer models.
The motor/fan assemblies in the two products are different with the Extreme model having more powerful 5.7 inch diameter motor/fan assemblies and the Airmax having less powerful 5.1 inch diameter motor/fan assemblies. It must be understood here that power is defined in this circumstance as motor generated torque. So, while each motor/fan assembly produces approximately 123 CFM free air (on the bench with no resistive elements at sea level) the 5.7 inch unit (Extreme) does so at a much lower speed (22,500 rpm) as compared to the Airmax at approximately 32,000 rpm. The amount of air pressure or vacuum (measured in water lift) that each unit produces in a free air condition and with the resistive elements introduced (dryer housing, filters, hoses, novels etc.) are also roughly equivalent. The primary distinction is that the larger motor fan assemblies (in the Extreme) achieve these objectives without having to work so hard which causes the motor to last longer. The current density at the brush to commutator contact point is substantially higher with the Airmax unit which causes the brushes and commutator to wear more rapidly which requires more frequent brush changes and a parallel reduction in general motor life.
There is a modest increase in practical air volume (measured at the nozzle) for the Extreme over the Airmax and a slight increase in temperature for the Airmax over the Extreme. This causes the units to have roughly equivalent drying capability with the Extreme having a marginal advantage in penetrating dense undercoats and the Airmax having a slight advantage in colder more humid conditions.
Accordingly, the primary distinction between the two products is generally motor related life expectancy. The Extreme does come with a 10 foot hose as opposed to a 6 foot hose and an extra nozzle as well. The Extreme also outweighs the Airmax dryer by several pounds.
