Lifting Cups

 

LIFTING CUPS™:
Function/Purpose: Helps thrust cannon payload further when used!

Lifting CupA lifting cup is a thin double-backed paper cup that fits inside the barrel of most 1" and 2"  Aerotechnic™ devices. Essentially, it acts as an elevator and lifts the payload up evenly. When it lifts, it spreads open and holds back the gas by forming a tight inner wall seal. This in turn maximizes your pushing power because no gas escapes between the paper products inside. The cup also provides a small cargo area that lifts some of the payload to a high point and then dumps it! This is especially good for small (1 ounce) amounts of Aerofetti™. The user will find that when using lifting cups, the streamer load will stay compacted and travel to greater heights (10-50%). In turn, the product will function more efficiently and in some cases, a smaller CO2 cylinder can be used, decreasing your operating costs! NOTE: Smaller devices such as the wand and pistol do not need backpressure caps or lifting cups.

Lifting Cup Installation: Select the proper cup that fits the inside of your empty barrel. Squeeze the cup so that one end fits into the barrel. Once the front section is started in, the back section will funnel in easily. Use a ramrod to push the lifting cup to the bottom of the barrel. You now can load any safe product of your choice into the device. Since the lifting cups are thin and of poor aerodynamic design, they will usually not travel far. However, you do not want to hit anyone as they may sting. So when using cups, a good rule to follow is - 

"DON'T AIM DIRECTLY AT ANYONE! and ALWAYS AIM UPWARDS!"

TIPS: In addition to shooting steamers and Aerofetti™, most of our devices will also shoot large confetti, sparkle confetti, flour (smoke), feathers, soft food (jello/cake), silks, soft toys, light weight tokens, playing cards, play or real dollar bills, parachutes, business cards, popcorn and water!... Actually, anything that is light, soft and has no pointed corners, can be fired out. For water cannon effect, omit all paper products and fill cannon with water only!

FYI: White streamers glow radiantly under UV lighting and/or look like smoke trails, whereas red and orange streamers look like fire streaks!

Our streamers™ are aerodynamically designed for maximum travel and spread in the air.


WARNING: NEVER USE AEROTECHNIC™ PRODUCTS IF THERE ARE ANY OPEN FLAMES PRESENT!
