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.
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. Read more about Silvent technology here.
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:
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.
