Star-Type Nozzle minimizes compressed air consumption.

Press Release Summary:

Available in cast zinc, ¼ in. NPT or BSP Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ 47004AMF serves applications requiring high force for blow off. Star-type profile design utilizes various size air outlet holes using smaller holes at inward angle. Resulting concentration of higher flowing air into concentrated air stream increases efficiency by reducing compressed air use, as well as associated energy and noise, while extending distance where useful laminar flow is maintained.


Original Press Release:

Uses Least Amount of Compressed Air for an Equivalent Blow Off Force than Other Know Air Nozzles on the Market

Star-type profile nozzles have a high force/scfm ratio compared to aspirator or cone shaped air nozzles and are best suited for applications where high force is required for blow off. The Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ Compressed Air Nozzle, is a new “patent pending” star-type profile design which was tested against other known star-profile designs and shown to use the least amount of compressed air for the force generated. The “patent pending” design utilizes various size air outlet holes using smaller holes at an inward angle to concentrate the higher flowing air into a more concentrated air stream. This increases efficiency by reducing overall compressed air use and also extends the distance where useful “laminar flow” is maintained. With lower air use comes energy saving and reduced noise levels.

HOW TO PROVE FOR YOURSELF HOW GOOD A NOZZLE IS? 
The Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle is designed so that the force at a particular pressure will we the same as competitive nozzle of star profile design. To compare and prove the superiority of the Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle this makes it easy by simply replacing the other nozzle and seeing what happens.  To do this, have a pressure regulator and gauge upstream.   And if possible a flow meter upstream. Either have a scale to blow against or just apply it your particular application.  For each nozzle, adjust the pressure upstream to that it is the same for all nozzles tested. This is what you can expect…..

If you replace any competitive nozzle, you will probably have to cut back the pressure as you will get more force from the Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle. This is because the air consumption is “less” at any given pressure which also means less pressure drop in the line as the air flows out through the nozzle. So you will actually be getting a bit more pressure and force as a result. You can then cut back the pressure if not needed thereby reducing compressed air use even more.

If you have a flow meter, all nozzles can be tested comparatively.

Alternatively, you can just try the various nozzles and you will find the Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle to perform better simple because there is less pressure drop since it uses less compressed air, indicating its greater efficiency.

The  Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ air nozzle will reduce compressed air use dramatically and save air even against similar star-type profile designs. 

Applications Include:
• Part cleaning especially when higher force needed
• Heavy Chip removal
• Part drying
• Liquid blowoff
• Material conveying
• Part ejection
• Air assist

The  Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ air nozzle comes in cast zinc and is ¼” NPT or ¼” BSP.  Other materials and other sizes are coming soon!

We invite you to try and to compare!
