Our air nozzles, air knives and air blow guns are designed to reduce sound levels and improve the efficiency of blowing with compressed air.
Blowing with compressed air is common in industry when cleaning, drying, cooling, sorting or transporting objects. Silvent air nozzles are used in fixed installations and make efficient use of compressed air. All Silvent air nozzles feature the optimal combination of high blowing force, low energy consumption and low noise levels.
Air knives are most commonly used to blow away liquids, grime, airborne debris, etc. from surfaces or objects. Silvent air knives create a broad and effective flow of air that produces a pneumatic scraping effect without mechanical contact. All Silvent air knives feature the optimal combination of high blowing force, low energy consumption and low noise levels.
Manual blowing with compressed air is common in industry when cleaning, drying or cooling objects. Silvent air blow guns make efficient use of compressed air. All Silvent air blow guns feature the optimal combination of high blowing force, low energy consumption and low noise levels, at the same time as they are ergonomically designed for professional use.
Some industries and processes need more blowing force than a regular air blow gun can generate. Therefore, Silvent has developed air blow guns with high blowing force. The blowing force ranges from twice as strong up to 30 times stronger than a regular air blow gun. All Silvent air blow guns are safe, quiet and efficient, and are developed for professional use.
The noise from compressed air valves is extremely hazardous, but equipping valve discharge ports with pneumatic mufflers often causes operational disturbances. Silvent pneumatic mufflers have integrated warning indicators. The technology basically entails that the pneumatic muffler itself sets the optimal combination of flow capacity and noise suppression thanks to the dynamic internal filter, which subsequently minimizes operational disturbances and eliminates clogging.
To optimize blowing, it is sometimes necessary to be able to make pressure or blowing angle adjustments, for example. In other cases protection against airborne debris may be needed. Silvent has different types of accessories for easily performing various blowing tasks, optimally and safely.
Blowers or fans are commonly used in the drying process in industry. In many cases, it is much more effective to dry by blowing with compressed air. The high blowing force removes the liquid much faster, which gives a shorter drying time. This makes it possible to increase the production speed.
The stainless steel nozzle SILVENT 9002W-S+ dries the bottleneck. By mounting the air nozzles on a FlexBlow hose in stainless steel it is possible to fine-tune the blow angle, for optimal drying.
The air knife SILVENT 300 dries parts after washing. By installing several air knives in a row, it is possible to dry the parts efficiently at higher speed. The air knives are specially designed for the application, to stream line the process as much as possible.
SILVENT AirPlow is an air plow specially developed for the steel industry. The air plow removes coolant from the steel strip to avoid quality problems later in the process. It is often possible to improve the quality of the finished product.
To remove fluid after the wash, the company used blowing with compressed air. The problem with the blowing application was the company’s use of open pipes, which generated a turbulent air jet. Open pipe installations are often oversized and are seldom preceded by any kind of technical dimensioning calculations. This results in high energy consumption and inefficient blowing with compressed air.
Four SILVENT 9002W air nozzles were used to remove fluid from the machine components after washing. The air nozzles generated flat, sharp air patterns that efficiently removed the fluid from the machine components. The engineer-designed air nozzles and well calculated dimensioning enabled the much more efficient use of expensive compressed air.
To solve the problem with the huge energy costs, the company replaced its four open pipes with air nozzles designed by Silvent’s engineers. Silvent technology generates laminar air flow that entrains or draws the surrounding air with it. This resulted in annual savings of USD 28,400 and a return on investment of just 5 days.

Production problems occurred because the water, which was used for cooling, was not removed from the product. The problem affected the entire production process and led to far too many costly production stops.
The air doughnut SILVENT 463 L has a 360° full coverage air cone that provides for efficient blow-off around the entire object. Thanks to optimized blowing angles and distances, the new blowing application was able to dry using less compressed air, resulting in better energy efficiency and lower costs.
It was possible to remedy the problem by installing an air doughnut designed with multiple optimized air nozzles positioned in a circle. In this way, the air jets were able to hit all around the product and ensure that it was properly dry. The nozzle installation meant that unnecessary production stops were avoided, rendering the manufacturing process more efficient.
