Blown Fibre Unit                                                                       Printer Friendly Version

accelair logoThe Blown Fibre Machine has been developed to
complement the existing range of fibre cable blowing equipment available from CBS Products (KT) Ltd. The Blown Fibre Machine is designed to fit the smaller end of fibre range from 2 to 12 fibres (1 to 2.5mm diameter), thereby providing the complete range of fibre blowing installation systems from one company.
A compact integrated fibre-blowing machine. The
machine is self contained and only requires a single
electrical supply and compressed air to operate.

What is fibre blowing?
Fibre blowing is a technique pioneered by British Telecom for blowing small bundles of fibres into small tubes that can be placed around a building. Fibres can be easily blown into the tubes. Since these fibres can at any time be quickly blown out of the tubes if required, upgrading is easy. For example, an unknown multimode fiber is simple to upgrade an OM3 multimode or an OS1 single-mode fibre. This flexibility and opportunity for easy upgrading has made blown fibre installation the method of choice for many buildings. Blown fibre is also attractive for fibre-to-the-home, or FTTH, projects where the tube can be installed and allow easy fibre installation with minimal disruption at a later date.

Fibre Blowing Table
This provides a stable platform to carry out the blowing operation. The table comes complete with tube and fibre guides leaving the operator to concentrate on the installation. The on/off valve enables point of use control over the air supply to the Accelair while an air regulator allows the operator to vary the air pressure supplied.

Air Stop End Kit
This device blocks the far end of the tube while allowing air to escape, this in turn enables the Accelair to detect when the fibre has reached the end of its installation

Air Flowmeter
Attached to the end of the tube, this indicates the airflow exiting the installation route giving an indication of tube integrity and complexity. As a general rule if you get 16-18 l/min or more of air exiting the tube the Accelair will install the fibre.

5mm Clear Tube Connector
These connect 5mm tube to 5mm tube with the added advantage of being clear; this enables the installer to see the presence of fibre without depressurising or disconnecting the system.

Blown Fibre Compressor

The Blown Fibre Compressor is designed to deliver clean dry air for installation of optical fibre using the blown fibre technique.
The compressor is a portable, petrol engine driven rotary vane compressor unit. Producing 200 l/min of pulse free treated compressed air at a working pressure of 10 bar, it provides the ideal source for field installation of fibre optic cable.

Blown Fibre Compressor
AccelAir Blown Fibre Compressor
An extremely reliable Honda GX240QX OHV Petrol Engine provides power for the compressor.
The unit incorporates a 12Vdc air cooled aftercooler reducing the compressed air
temperature to within 2ºC of ambient. A 3 stage filtration system provides technically oil-free air. A membrane dryer system complete with a balanced by-pass. This reduces moisture levels to prevent problems in the blowing operation without drying the air to an extent where static electricity is generated. The unit is supplied with a 24Vdc outlet socket for
powering the C-1400 Blown Fibre Unit.
