Air nozzles are common in industry when cleaning, drying, cooling, sorting or transporting objects. What many people do not take into consideration is that operation of pneumatic devices is quite expensive. On an average, 70 percent of all compressed air is used for blowing. Blowing also causes hazardous noise levels.
Choosing the right nozzle requires knowledge and experience. We have this at Silvent. We also have the market’s broadest assortment of nozzles. This combination gives us the capability to help our customers in solving their blowing problems, such as problems with poor blowing effect, expensive operation or high noise levels.
All Silvent air nozzles feature the optimal combination of high blowing force, low energy consumption and low noise levels.
In most cases the installation of open pipe is not preceded by any sort of formal technical dimensioning and since theoretical knowledge of aerodynamics is often limited, efficiency is insufficient. By over-dimensioning, open pipe blowing does work, but its drawbacks include:
- Excessive turbulence that generates harmful noise
- Inordinate energy consumption, i.e. waste of expensive compressed air
- A hazardous working environment with, for example, the risk of embolism
Silvent technology provides the solution
Years of research have led to the development of the renowned, patented Silvent technology. Its basic principle is creating a uniform, steady and straight or so-called laminar air stream rather than the turbulent and noisy stream generated by open pipe. Every Silvent nozzle features an optimal combination of high blowing force, low noise level and low energy consumption. Replacing open pipe installations with Silvent compressed air nozzles normally means:
- Lowering the sound level by 50%
- Reducing air consumption by at least 30%
- Complying with authorities’ safety requirements
