The Flettner TCX-2 is an eco-friendly, totally wind powered rotary ventilator that is perfect for extracting fumes in vans carrying gas cylinders, chemicals or inflammable liquids plus it will assist in lowering the temperature inside the cargo area of your van during warmer months. This vent’s operating principle is deceptively simple. Mounted on a spindle, the extractor fan is driven by an air scoop which catches the air stream created by the motion of a vehicle or the prevailing breeze as low as 10 mph. Beneath the spinning air scoop are vanes which expel air, drawing stale air from below. The construction of the unit prevents the entry of rain, dust and downdrafts. Extraction capacity is remarkably effective and can be regulated by adjusting the internal shutter. Wind power means a quiet, totally maintenance-free performance with no electrical connections, no battery drain, no running costs and no distracting motor noise. This ventilator not only leads the way in operational efficiency but is also much simpler to install than other vents. Everything you need for installation including full instructions, template, gasket and shutter is included. Flettner’s use of only the highest grade plastics and top grades of machined stainless steel in the shaft and bearings enable them to provide a Lifetime Warranty with purchase.
