The representative for Nex Flow Air Products Corp. in France had an interesting application as shown in the picture above. The customer had a row of flat nozzles used to blow off parts on the tray. However the flat jets obviously did not have even flow all the way across the length causing poor performance in blow off of the discreet parts. In addition it was quite noisy.
The Nex Flow X-stream Air Blade air knife used reduced noise dramatically, used less compressed air, and performed far better than the flat nozzles due to the even flow.
Flat nozzles are excellent for higher force applications when necessary but when the level of force is not needed, air knives are a far more economical solution with the added advantage of lower noise and even flow along with reduced energy needs.
For solutions using compressed air for blow off, cooling, or moving, Nex Flow personnel and their representatives worldwide can assist you.
