#5. Cooling when cutting metal

The company used blowing with compressed air when cutting metal to cool components and blow away swarf. Open pipes are the most common method of blowing with compressed air in industry, which causes high sound levels due to the turbulent air jets. Blowing with compressed air is one of the biggest sources of noise in the manufacturing industry.

By replacing the open pipes with Silvent air nozzles, it was possible to reduce the sound level in cooling. The nozzles reduced the turbulence from blowing with compressed air, which led to lower sound levels.
Five SILVENT 011 air nozzles were installed to improve the application. On installation, the blowing distance and blowing angles were precisely adjusted for the best possible cooling without generating high sound levels when e.g. blowing across sharp edges. It was also possible to remove the swarf more efficiently.
