Engineered Vs. Ordinary

An air nozzle is an air nozzle, right? If I could write a buzzer sound, a wrong answer sound, I would. Because there are clear and measurable differences between Engineered Air Nozzles and ordinary air nozzles.

Step number three in Six Steps to Optimization is:
1. Measure your air consumption
2. Locate and fix any compressed air leaks in the system
3. Upgrade your end use blow off applications with engineered products
4. Turn off the compressed air when not needed for production
5. Use intermediate storage of compressed air near the point of use
6. Control the pressure at the point of use to minimize consumption

Your ordinary nozzle with a through hole and a cross drilled hole can be an easy choice based upon price, but if you do not consider the operating cost you do not really know how much it is costing you. An Engineered Air Nozzle will pay for itself and lower operating costs quickly. Engineered Air Nozzles are the future of compressed air efficiency and are made to replace ordinary nozzles, homemade nozzles and open line blow offs.

Engineered Nozzles reduce air consumption and noise levels; ordinary nozzles cannot compete. Engineered Nozzles maintain safety features and can qualify for an energy savings rebate from a local uitility; ordinary nozzles fall short. Open blow off or homemade blow off applications typically violate OSHA safety standards; Engineered Nozzles do not.

Engineered air nozzles can produce a larger net gain of efficiency than ordinary nozzles. EXAIR’s product line includes many different models of an Engineered Air Nozzle including our highly efficient Super Air Amplifiers, Super Air Knives and Super Air Nozzles. Each of them, applied properly, have the ability to reduce air consumption, reduce noise levels, increase safety, and reduce compressed air operating costs.

So if you have open blow offs, manifolds with ordinary nozzles, pipes with drilled holes or prefer the lower cost cheap nozzle – find out how much air you are using with these products and look to EXAIR to begin your air savings program.
