Flex-A-Lite is well-known for its line of cooling systems, which includes electric fans, radiators, and other types of heat exchangers. The company has long ties to the drag racing market and they are taking cooling systems to the next level by offering two types of air movers—the Airmover 1000 and Flex-A-Chill 3000. Both were designed with the racer in mind to help assist them in cooling their race vehicle down in between rounds of racing.
The first high performance fan to hit the market was the Airmover 1000 and it addressed several needs for enthusiasts. It is lightweight and compact, making it easy to store as well as position when in use. The fan pushes 900 cfm of air and it has a very focused direction of air, making it easier to direct the output to a specific area like a clutch or through a radiator opening or on top of the engine bay. Since motorsports is where the concept was developed, the Flex-A-Lite engineers built it to have less than a 2 amp draw so it doesn’t overtax the power supply, which is often times an outlet in a car trailer. Additionally, the unit has an outlet built into its body to allow fans to be daisy-chained together or to be used for something like a light or power tool.
The Flex-A-Chill 3000 as built using the same concepts of the daisy-chain capabilities, durable polyethylene housing, and low amp draw. The Flex-A-Chill 3000 has a more traditional fan look and can be used to cool a vehicle down or even to clear smoke and fumes from a dyno cell or garage. It moves a robust 2,600 cfm of air with just a 2.7 amp draw.
We met with Flex-A-Lite’s Cole Quinell at the recently completed NMRA All-Ford World Finals at Beech Bend Raceway to get the lowdown on these two products. Checkout the video to see what he had to say.
