Final eductor tubes are installed.

Today was spent working on the new eductor tubes.

First step is to get an idea of what the eductor is going to look like.   Some foam was used at templates to outline the inlet and outlet shapes as well as the overall length.

The shapes were wrapped with some heavy paper to use as a template to make the aluminum tubes.

The inlet of the tube is flared to smooth the air going into the eductor.

All that is needed is to mount the nut plates on the tube and I’ll be ready to test! ¬†Tomorrow morning I’ll check out the results.
