Our air nozzles, air knives and safety air 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 safety air guns make efficient use of compressed air. All Silvent safety air 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.
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.
*Compared to an open pipe.
This is possible thanks to Silvent technology, which reduces turbulence and creates a more uniform, smooth and straight air jet when blowing with compressed air, which is sometimes referred to as a laminar air jet.
Blowing with compressed air can generate high sound levels, which can harm operators. To combat this, Silvent’s safety air guns, air nozzles and air knives are designed to reduce sound levels when blowing with compressed air. The products reduce turbulence, which enables a reduction in noise levels. The specially designed air nozzles also help reduce sound levels, as they pass the air through multiple, uniquely designed holes or slots. If the air jet is led through multiple small holes instead of one big hole, some of the sound is raised to frequencies that are beyond what the human ear can perceive or be harmed by.
When blowing with compressed air, it’s important to be aware of the risks. Young people are overrepresented in accident statistics, which is often due to a lack of training in the use of compressed air. Silvent’s air nozzles have a special design that prevent the nozzle orifice from being blocked by the operator by mistake. Totally blocking the orifice could cause the operator serious injury. If the pressure is too high, which can be the case in total blocking, the compressed air can penetrate the operator’s skin. This can lead to serious injury such as air embolisms and cerebral hemorrhage. Silvent technology minimizes the risk of this type of injury and meets government safety requirements.
Few people are aware of just how much compressed air actually costs. To reduce energy consumption, it’s important to reduce the turbulence that occurs when blowing with compressed air. Because less energy is wasted producing turbulence, a greater amount of the energy input can be used for blowing with compressed air. This makes for more efficient blowing. Silvent technology also increases air entrainment, which means the compressed air draws the surrounding air with it. In this way, the same output is achieved for less energy.
Everyone has the right to a good working environment
Safety air guns can be found everywhere in any production facility and they are the product that most often springs to mind when talking about blowing with compressed air. Safety air guns are used primarily for cleaning tools, machinery and parts as well as floors and entire workplaces etc.
A conventional open pipe with a drilled hole or nozzle suitable for fluids is commonly used in such applications. Technical design calculations are seldom carried out, which in principle means that every application is over-dimensioned.
“Blowing with compressed air stands for 50% of all compressed air consumption”
Most installations with open pipes are not based on any previous technical design calculations, which means that 90% of them are inefficient and over dimensioned. With our products and know-how, we are able to replace open pipe installations and achieve huge benefits.
