EXAIR, represented by Compressed Air Australia , has released the 50.8mm Super Air Nozzle, a flat air nozzle that maximises entrained airflow and force while reducing compressed air use and noise. The flat, 50.8mm wide airstream is ideally suited for blowoff, cooling and drying applications.
The nozzle has a 0.38mmm air gap opening that is set with a stainless steel shim positioned between the body and removable cap. A precise amount of air is released through the thin slot across a flat surface. The result is a wide, forceful stream of high-velocity, laminar airflow. Air consumption is 21.8 cubic feet a minute at 80 psi with a noise level of 77dBA and force of 629g when mounted 300mm from the target. Force may be easily increased or decreased by installing different shim thicknesses. An optional Stay Set flexible hose for frequent repositioning keeps the airflow aimed at the target until physically moved.
The nozzle has a zinc aluminium alloy construction suited for industrial applications and is also available in stainless steel. The airflow that exits the nozzle cannot be blocked and meets OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.95(a) and 1910.242(b). Applications include parts cleaning, chip removal, part drying, part ejection, liquid blowoff and cooling hot parts.
