Silvent has application experience from 92 countries and we help companies in different industries on a daily basis to find the optimal products for each individual application. Silvent’s products are sold through our own sales companies and a global network of distributors all of whom are specialists well trained in compressed air dynamics who can help you with your application or challenge. All of our personnel undergo regular training at Silvent’s head office in Sweden, where all research and development takes place. Contact us

Silvent’s products are fitted with Silvent technology, which uses compressed air in the most effective and efficient way. Silvent technology minimizes turbulence and uses co-ejection, which means that the nozzle design allows the compressed air to make use of the surrounding air.

OSHA is an acronym for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which is the federal agency responsible for the implementation of occupational health and safety legislation in the United States. OSHA regulates compressed air usage in the United States and non-compliance is punishable by a fine. Read more about our summary of OSHA regulations for compressed air here.

We usually talk about three risks associated with blowing with compressed air:

  1. Air embolisms, which occur if compressed air is blown under the skin, e.g. through a wound. Air bubbles can then be forced into the veins and carried through the bloodstream. When the air bubble reaches the heart, symptoms may be similar to a heart attack. If an air bubble reaches the brain, it can lead to a stroke. Learn how Silvent can prevent this.
  2. Hearing loss or tinnitus, are serious injuries and incurable. Air guns can generate harmfully high noise levels when blowing. Read more about the dangers of high noise levels and how you can begin your safety work.
  3. Splash and eye injuries may occur in conjunction with blowing with compressed air. When cleaning, dirt, liquids and chips may ricochet back toward the operator and cause both bodily and eye injuries. Read about how Silvent can help reduce the risk.

Open tubes are often used for blowing with compressed air. The turbulence this creates in the air generates noise. Silvent’s products minimize turbulence and create a uniform, smooth and straight laminar air flow, which reduces noise. Read more about Silvent technology here.

Silvent’s products are designed to help operators who work with compressed air on a daily basis. All data and technical information are based on tests carried out with compressed air. Silvent’s products are solely intended for use in blowing with compressed air.

No, not if you are using a product that meets OSHA requirements. Such products regulate the pressure and make sure it does not exceed 30 psi in the case of a blockage. Learn more about OSHA’s requirements for pressure regulation here.

Silvent’s products combine high blowing force with low noise levels and low energy consumption. The unique combination is possible thanks to Silvent’s proprietary technology, known as “Silventtekniken”. Read more about Silvent technology here.
