Maxum (Rochester Hills, MI) has announced the Nozzle Bar, a patented air blow-off device that looks and installs like an air knife but offers the full blow-off power of individual air nozzles, while using less energy and reaching further distances. Its internal nozzle system is fully customizable for optimum blow-off of any part, providing powerful force to reach deep cavities and varying part shapes and distances. Features include the following:
- An internal nozzle system customizable with a variety of flow rates and patterns, and its converging and laminar flow design to maximize velocity and blow-off distance. With Maxum's converging and laminar flow technology, air reaches the part in a stronger, faster, more concentrated form than slot-style air knives, improving efficiency while slashing energy usage.
- The ability to dry complicated shapes using more air where it is needed, and less air where it is not, all from a single nozzle bar. For complex parts inside washers, racked parts, unusual shaped containers, and many other applications this provides powerful blow-off that cannot be matched by any air knife design.
- A wide choice of stock patterns and flow rates.
Maxum’s innovative air blow-off and drying equipment remove water, liquids, and debris, successfully preparing products for assembly, packaging, labelling, inkjet printing, inspection, powder coating, and more using energy efficient blow-off equipment.
