Air Nozzles

U.S.Metric

Product Overview

Vortec engineered blow off nozzles significantly reduce compressed air consumption and noise, compared to open nozzle jets. Using proven amplification technology, Vortec nozzles entrain and accelerate free surrounding air, resulting in air flow volume up to 25 times more than the volume of compressed air, giving 25 times the blow off capacity at a significantly reduced energy usage and lower operating cost. And while reducing air consumption, Vortec nozzles also reduce noise levels by as much as 60%.

Vortec nozzles are available in a full range of designs, materials of construction, sizes and force/thrust levels compatible with most installations; capable of replacing open copper tubes, flex-line, drilled pipe and other nozzles that are not designed to save air. Worker safety standards are met as well, as Vortec safety air nozzles are compliant with OSHA 1910.242(b) dead-end pressure regulations.
