Zephyr-EXL with Optional CO2 Power System = "Enhanced Portability"
Field tested on 40lb birds.
The Zephyr-EXL produces 26 Joules of energy with a bolt velocity of 27 meters/second.
One firing instantly and irreversibly stuns turkeys. Contact of the high velocity bolt causes a differential acceleration between the cranium and the brain. The resulting blunt force trauma causes instant irreversible loss of consciousness.
When locating the Zephyr-EXL to the turkey, contact of the Zephyr-EXL's nose piece with the turkey's head is not required. The Zephyr-EXL is held approximately 1 inch above the center of the turkey head and aligned between the back of the eye and the ear. When the Zephyr-EXL trigger is actuated, the resulting bolt displacement is sufficient to contact the turkey. Note: the turkey remains calm since there is no pressure on the head prior to firing. The turkey is rendered unconscious before the nervous system can respond; no pain is felt and the welfare of the turkey is conserved.
In the standard power configuration the Zephyr-EXL is connected by a hose to a 125 psi compressed air tank. A standard air compressor is connected to the air tank and maintains a 125 psi pressurized air supply to the Zephyr-EXL.
In this optional power configuration the Zephyr-EXL is connected by a short hose to a 125 psi CO2 power source. The CO2 power source consists of several components: a bottle of compressed CO2, a special C02 pressure regulator, and a short hose to connect the CO2 regulator to the to the Zephyr-EXL. The CO2 regular is factory set to reduce the 800psi CO2 bottle pressure to 125 psi outlet pressure for the Zephyr-EXL.
