Air Mag™ Air Nozzles

The Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ Air Nozzle is a star type profile nozzle with a unique “patent pending design” to assist in focusing the compressed air from the supply line and entrained air from the surroundings to a more sharp laminar flow of air with the highest force per SCFM on the market.  This both reduces compressed air energy use and noise levels significantly as compared to open jets and pipe as well as outperforming similar star style designs.  Even replacing competitive air nozzles can provide significant cost savings in energy.  The nozzle is of rugged, cast zinc, single piece design ideal for harsh environments

Model 47004AMF – is the first product of the The Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ “patent pending” star profile air amplifying nozzle and has the best force/air consumption ratio known.  Ideal when higher force required in blowoff applications.   

Sound Level 74 dbA at 3 ft. (0,91m) at 80 psig (5.5 bar)

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 be the same as a 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 for 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 theNex 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. 

Advantages of the Air Mag™ Design
  • Lowest air consumption for force produced
  • Lower noise levels
  • no "whistling" sound *
  • single piece design for extra strength

 

*even outperformed nozzles using a so-called laval effect but without the annoying whistle that may come with such designs

Applications

 

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

 

How Air Mag™ Nozzle Work


 

Air Mag™ Nozzle Model 47004AMF – Compressed air enters at point (A). Surrounding air (B) is entrained over the specially designed surface profile as
the small amount of compressed air exits the specially designed holes drilled in the nozzle and combines at (C) to form a concentrated high velocity, 
laminar flow stream of amplified air flow and concentrated force with very high ratio of force/cfm
