If You Must Blow It Off with Compressed Air, Do It Right


Using compressed air for blowing applications is rarely the most energy-efficient alternative, but when you must, it’s best to use a nozzle engineered to minimize consumption. EXAIR's new 1-in. Flat Super Air Nozzle produces a flat, 1-in. (25 mm) wide airstream with a strong blowing force of 9.8 ounces (278 g) when mounted 12 in. (305 mm) from the target. The design of this super-efficient nozzle makes it suitable for both tight spaces and tight budgets.

The nozzle uses patented technology to maximize entrained airflow while reducing noise levels. A precise amount of air is released through the .015-in. (0.38 mm) air gap opening that is set with a stainless steel shim positioned between the body and removable cap. The airstream pulls in surrounding room air to produce a wide, forceful stream of high-velocity, laminar airflow. Air consumption is 10.5 SCFM at 80 PSIG. The 75 dBA sound level is below the limits of the OSHA maximum allowable noise exposure standard 29 CFR 1910.95(a). Force and flow may be easily adjusted by installing different shim thicknesses. Optional swivel fittings and Stay Set Flexible Hoses to aim the nozzle are also available.

The 1-in. Flat Super Air Nozzle is available in zinc aluminum alloy construction, suitable for rugged industrial applications including ejecting heavy parts and slugs, chip removal, part cleaning, drying, liquid blowoff and cooling. Price is $39.
