Air Wipe Blow-Off System - Ring-Blade™ from Nex Flow

Air Wipe, Blow-Off System, Ring-Blade, Nex FlowAir Wipe Blow-Off System - Ring-Blade™ from Nex Flow™ is easy to mount and maintain and reduces both compressed air consumption and noise levels.

 

It produces a “laminar” flow of air along its 360º angle using the “Coanda” effect which “entrains” a large volume of air from the surrounding area along with the small amount of compressed air from the Ring-Blade™ air-saver wiper-blade to produce an output flow up to 30 times.

 

Air Wipe Blow-Off System - Ring-Blade™ pay back on compressed air savings can be as soon as a few weeks in some applications when compared to nozzle “rings” or simple annular slots used by other air wiping systems.

 

Blow-off, cool & clean items like pipe, cable, wire and hose with the Air Wipe Blow-Off System Ring-Blade™ from Nex Flow™.

 

 

Ring Blade™ Air Wipe


 

Compressed air enters at point (A) into an annular chamber and throttled through a small ring nozzle at high velocity. This air stream clings to the coanda profile directing the air stream down toward the surface which is angled to create a “cone” style directed force to best clean, wipe and dry a surface. The surrounding air is entrained at point (B) creating an amplified 360 degree conical airflow at point (C) to uniformly wipe the surface of the of the material running through the Ring Blade TM. The wet or dirty material (D) direction of travel is against the flow.

 

Features
Benefits
  • System is made of coated aluminum to provide even air flow 360º around the part.

  • Even blow off around the part, light
    in weight and compact.

  • Designed as two pieces hinged together to open and close around the part.

  • Easy to install and maintain and allows removal of a continuous piece.

  • Utilizes the "Coanda" effect to amplify air flow.

  • Reduced compressed air use for energy savings plus lower noise levels.

  • Instant on-off with no moving parts, no electricity or explosion hazard.

  • Maintenance free with output easily controlled, safe to use.
