The EXAIR Flat Super Air Nozzles; features and benefits

Flat Nozzle Blow-off Kit

The EXAIR Flat Super Air Nozzles are manufactured to blow a wide, forceful stream of air.  Their engineered design creates a high-velocity, laminar air stream with minimal air consumption and low noise.  They come in two widths; 1” (25mm) and 2” (51mm).  EXAIR offers a standard Flat Super Air Nozzle and a High Force Flat Super Air Nozzle in two different materials: zinc-aluminum alloy and 316 stainless steel.  And with a metal construction, breakage is not a concern, and performance is not sacrificed even in the harshest of environments.  The unique patented shims inside the EXAIR Flat Super Air Nozzles will give you three improvements to the design and function.  First, they come in different thicknesses to create a wide range of forces.  In conjunction with a regulator, you can “dial” in the correct amount of force from a breeze to a blast without overusing your compressed air system.  The patented design also allows an even flow across the entire width of the air nozzle.  Lastly, the design helps to entrain the free ambient air; so that less compressed air is required; saving you money.  The EXAIR Flat Super Air Nozzles are effective in uniform blowing with safety and efficiency in mind.

Flat Super Air Nozzles have replaceable shims to vary performance.

To expand more on force adjustments with the Flat Super Air Nozzles, EXAIR has an easy way to change the shim to better suit your application.  You can increase or decrease the force of the nozzle by just removing two screws and changing the thickness of the shim inside.  EXAIR offers a variety pack called a Shim Set to give you a range of forces with the nozzles.  For the standard Flat Super Air Nozzle, they come stock with a 0.015” (0.38mm) shim for both the 1” and 2” sizes.  The corresponding Shim Sets will include a 0.005” (0.13mm), 0.010” (0.25mm), and 0.020” (0.51mm) shim.  The High Force Flat Super Air Nozzles will come standard with a 0.025” (0.64mm) shim, and the Shim Set will include a 0.020” (0.51mm) and a 0.030” (0.76mm) thick shim.  This is a unique feature, as the competitive plastic flat nozzles do not have this option. 

What can make the Flat Super Air Nozzles even better?  Flexibility.  The Stay Set Hoses can be added for positioning and repositioning the Flat Super Air Nozzles.  They are designed to manually move the nozzle to accurately target the air stream.  They allow for maneuverability, and once positioned, the Stay Set Hose will hold the nozzle in place.  They come in different lengths, from 6” (152mm) to 36” (914mm).  We carry two different styles of connections to adapt to the Flat Super Air Nozzles.  You can select the different lengths of Stay Set Hoses for the Flat Super Air Nozzle from the model number makeup sheet below.

EXAIR can also offer a Magnetic Base to your Stay Set Hoses and Flat Super Air Nozzles.  The Magnetic Base has a powerful magnet on the bottom to securely attach the blow-off system vertically or horizontally.  This feature is great if you need to move the nozzles to different locations in your application.  EXAIR manufactures a one-outlet and a two-outlet design.  Each outlet has a ¼ turn valve to manually turn on or off the nozzle.  To add this product to the Flat Super Air Nozzle and the Stay Set Hose, you can use the model number makeup sheet below for simplicity.

With the EXAIR Flat Super Air Nozzles, you can take advantage of their durability, safety, and efficiency for your blow-off devices.  In addition, you can build a system that will best suit your requirements by adding Stay Set Hoses and/or Magnetic Bases.  With these combinations grouped under one model number and in stock for quick shipments, it makes it easy to purchase from EXAIR.  And just to let you know if you are within the U.S. or Canada, they come with a 30-day unconditional guarantee to try them out.  If you need any help with drawings, performance, or setup of our Flat Super Air Nozzles or how to build an optimum blow-off system, you can speak with an Application Engineer at EXAIR.  We will be happy to help you.
