We take quite a few calls from customers looking for a nozzle that will provide more force than the current open ended pipe they are currently using. While we do offer nozzles that range in force from 2.0 ounces up to 23 lbs., sometimes force isn’t as important as is having a high velocity, depending on the application.
I recently worked with a customer who was wanting to blow machining coolant out of a blind hole in their aluminum die casting application. O the bottom of the part is an M10 tapped hole, 32mm deep and is running on a conveyor system that indexes to different stations. As the part indexes and goes over a transition, they were using an 1/8” open pipe, to blow up into the blind hole to remove coolant and any remaining debris hung up in the threads of the hole. While the open pipe was doing the job, they were needing a more efficient alternative with a small footprint to fit the application.
I recommended using our Model # 1110SS-NPT Nano Super Air Nozzle. The Nano Super Air Nozzle, produces 8.1 ounces force but also provides a high velocity, focused air stream. Compared to the open pipe, the unit consumes about 1/8 of the compressed air or only 8.3 SCFM @ 80 PSIG. (See below chart).
All of our nozzles take advantage of the Coanda effect to entrain the surrounding air, up to 25 times or more. The result is a high velocity, forceful airstream that requires a minimal amount of compressed air. As well as being OSHA compliant for 30 psi dead end pressure (cannot be dead ended) per Standard CFR 1910.242(b) and meeting the allowable noise exposure limits per Standard 29 CFR 1910.95(a).
If you have an application where you are needing to replace the unsafe, inefficient blowoffs in your facility, please contact an Application Engineer at 1-800-903-9247.
