The NEW NEX FLOW Compressed Air Scrub Nozzle simulates pulsing air to clean and dry tough surfaces.
Historically, people have used Pulsing Compressed Air since solenoid valves came into existence. And it offers specific advantages over continuous compressed air:
- Energy Savings: Pulsing consumes less air than continuous blowing.
- More Effective Cleaning: Pulsating action dislodges particles better. Intermittent bursts produce rapid force changes, breaking static or adhesive forces on particles.
Unfortunately, old-style solenoid valves with Pulsing Compressed Air cause pressure loss and have high maintenance costs. This led to the creation of more efficient, long-lasting process valves. Nex Flow offers these valves. They have benefits and drawbacks. Also, they’re more costly and need precise installation. Assess them per application.
Interestingly, the Air Scrub Nozzle pulses without a pulse valve. The nozzle has a flexible tube ending. It rotates from the compressed air action through a patented connection. This reduces wear on the assembly. The rotation mimics pulsing, giving the “scrubbing” effect for cleaning or drying. The nozzle consumes little air. The rotation assembly lasts 3000 hours. After that, it needs a simple, affordable replacement.
However, this nozzle doesn’t amplify, so place it close to the target. The turbulent air from rotation creates a pulse action. It cleans and dries with less force. You can often use it on products not securely fixed.
It doesn’t replace applications where pulse process valves fit better. However, it’s an effective, affordable solution when you need scrubbing over high flow and force.
