What do air bleeds do in a carburetor?

Air bleeds, sometimes referred to as “air jets” or “air bleeders” play a vital role in the operation of your carburetor. Air bleeds are responsible for determining the amount of air that will mix with each circuit in the metering block.

What are emulsion Jets?

Holley emulsion jets are just what you need to fine-tune your carburetor for street or race. Threaded for easy installation and removal, Holley jets are manufactured to high tolerances for consistency. Filter by Availability. Product Line: Holley Emulsion Jets. Part Type: Carburetor Idle Feed Restrictors.

What does the emulsion tube do?

Emulsion tube in a carburettor is used to maintain the air fuel ratio at all speeds.It consists of a well with main metering jet at its bottom. The jet has holes on its sides.It is in communication with atmospheric air. Initially air is drawn through the holes into the well and petrol is emulsified.

What do low speed air bleeds do?

But while jetting moves the whole A/F ratio curve up or down, air bleeds affect smaller, localized parts of the fuel curve. Thus, changing the size of the high- or low-speed air bleeds lets you tweak the actual shape of the fuel curve, while jetting shifts the entire curve up (leaner) or down (richer).

What is an air bleeder?

A bleed air system uses a network of ducts, valves and regulators to conduct medium to high pressure air, “bled” from the compressor section of the engine(s) and APU, to various locations within the aircraft. There it is utilized for a number of functions inclusive of: pressurisation. air conditioning. engine start.

What are the holes in the emulsion tube?

If you travel up the tube you will notice some small holes coming out of the side. These are for the air to come out. So air comes down through the holder, then through the air jet and now out of the holes in the side. Here is one of the tricks of the emulsion tube.

What are high speed air bleeds for?

The high speed air bleed controls how much air is fed to the emulsion channels of the metering block. To explain further, the emulsion channels distribute that air further to different parts of the main well where it mixes with fuel and ultimately goes to the booster.
