Compare the major differences between Silvent air nozzles and blowing with an open pipe in the table below, which is based on an eight-hour work day with blowing 5 days per week, year around. The cost of 1,000 scfm at 70 psi is calculated to the nearest $0.30. Through practical application testing we have been able to compile a table that shows which nozzles perform the same job as an open pipe.
|Open pipe Ø 10 mm (3/8″)||Replaced with SILVENT 705 L|
|Number of hours per year:||Number of hours per year:|
|52 weeks x 5 working days x 8 hours = 2,080 hours||52 weeks x 5 working days x 8 hours = 2,080 hours|
109 scfm x 60 min x 2,080 hrs x $ 0.30 / 1,000
55.9 scfm x 60 min x 2,080 hrs x $ 0.30 / 1,000
Annual operating cost = $4,081
Annual operating cost = $2,093
