EXAIR's Pico Super Air Nozzle for Precision Blowoff

Wednesday, December 05, 2012 by Compressed Air Australia

EXAIR's new Pico Super Air Nozzle™, at only 5mm in diameter, is one of the smallest available, providing precision blowoff with a directed high volume, high velocity airflow. The air nozzle projects 11mm past the mounting surface which permits installation where space is limited. The durable Type 316 stainless steel construction is ideally suited for blowoff, cooling and drying applications located in general industrial, high temperature, food, pharmaceutical or corrosive environments.

This CE compliant air nozzle has been engineered to provide a narrowly focused air pattern that measures only 33mm in diameter when positioned 6" (152mm) away from the target surface. High amplification of entrained airflow and a blowing force of 141.7 grams (5 ounces) are achieved with minimal air consumption of only 4.9 SCFM at 80 PSIG. The Pico Super Air Nozzle meets the OSHA standards for dead-end pressure 29 CFR 1910.242(b) and noise requirements 29 CFR 1910.95(a), assuring safe operation.

The Pico Super Air Nozzle has a M5 x 0.5 air inlet, but is also available with a 1/8 NPT or BSP male compressed air inlet. In addition, there is a version constructed of PEEK plastic for non-marring protection should the nozzle come in contact with other surfaces, as well as for extremely corrosive environments. A variety of configurations are available that include Safety Air Guns, flexible Stay Set hoses, swivels and magnetic bases.
