2″ Flat Super Air Nozzle Provides Perfect Solution for Thread Cleaning

This week I worked with a customer who was wanting to remove excess fluid from a U-bolt immersing application. The U-bolts range in length from 14” to 16.5” and have (2) 7/8-14 x 2” length threaded ends. After the curing process, they were experiencing build up on the threads so they were considering using an 18” Super Air Knife. The Super Air Knife provides a high velocity, laminar sheet of airflow across the entire length of the knife, which would work well in the application and encompass the customer’s various lengths.

One-piece construction, available in aluminum, 303ss, 316ss and PVDF, with lengths from 3″ to 108″.

After further reviewing the application, we determined that they didn’t need to blow off the entire bolt, but rather focus on removing the excess fluid from the threaded ends. Once again EXAIR had the perfect solution, our 2” Flat Super Air Nozzle! The 2” Flat Super Air Nozzle uses a patented shim design (.015” installed) to maintain a critical gap, resulting in a high velocity, forceful stream of airflow. Using the optional shim kit, the shims can be changed out to .005”, .010” or .020”, which allow you to increase or decrease the force and flow. By using a pressure regulator the customer was able to adjust the supply pressure to achieve the desired result.
