The difference between Silvents products and an open pipe

3 illustrations, three differences between open pipes and Silvent's air nozzles.


1. Improve the efficiency of the manufacturing process

Blowing with compressed air is often used to clean, dry, cool, transport or sort. In many cases, the blowing application is ineffective because the current solution, the open pipe, has not been adjusted to the specific blowing process. The open pipe also generates turbulence. When turbulence occurs it steals energy from the blowing force, which negatively affects the result. In the worst case, the quality of the final product can also be affected. Silvent’s air nozzles for compressed air minimise turbulence and provide a strong and energy-efficient air jet. The air nozzles are available in different dimensions and models, which makes it possible to optimise the solution for the blowing process. Silvent’s experts have extensive experience and are happy to help you find the right solution for your blowing application, for the best possible results.


2. Reduced energy consumption

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.


3. Reduced risk of occupational injuries

Blowing with compressed air can generate high sound levels, which can harm operators. To combat this, Silvent’s air blow 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 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.
