Hand Comfort Button Gun is used for blowing off metal chips during a drilling operation.
Air Knife (13)
Bottle cleaning uses two Nex Flow™ Model 10012X - 12" Silent X-Stream™ Air Blade™ Air Knives to blow water off bottles in a bottling line. This reduces compressed air use for blow off up to 50%. The units turn off when the line stops to conserve compressed air. When taking this on / off control into consideration, the energy cost compared to blowers is comparable but without the costly maintenance and noise.
Plastic Glass Prior to Laminating with Plastic Sheet:
A Model 15030X X-Stream™ Air Blade™ Ionizer neutralizes and cleans the surface of plate glass prior to laminating with plastic sheet.
Two Model 13030 RN static bars neutralize the plastic laminate preventing dust attraction. All three items are connected to one Model EN C-4-4-outlet power supply.
Plastic Container Cleaning:
Three Model 15012 Standard Air Blade™ Ionizers with 'extra strong' model VS static bar are used to remove the static charge from containers moving at high speed prior to filling. The Ionized air is blown into the container to remove the static charge. All the static bars will connect with 4 outlet power supply. The VS Bars are used because of the high speed of the container.
Camera Lens Cooling Standard Air BladeTM:
A Model 10003 3" Standard Air Blade™ Air Knife is mounted so that the surface of the Air Knife is flush with the surface of a camera lens. The air flows along the surface of the Air Knife and continues along the lens due to a boundary effect that provides a laminar "barrier" to the dirty environmental air, keeping the lens clean and dry.
A Nex Flow™ X-Stream™ Air Blade™ Air Knife acts as a barrier to keep fumes in a tank of acid being agitated.
Air BladeTM Ionizer in Packaging Operation:
A Model 16118X removes static from extruded rubber web on a rewind. Previously the static charge was so high that any spark would cause the rubber to burn. The 'extra strong' VS Bar combined with the X-stream™ Air Blade™ eliminats this unsafe situation.
Excess Sugar Blow Off:
A stainless steel 36" Silent X-Stream™ Air Blade™ Air Knife blows off excess sugar from muffins prior to entering the oven, to avoid burning. A Model 90009 Regulator with gauge sets the ideal pressure and flow.
Circuit Board Cleaning:
A Model 15112X X-Stream™ Air Blade™ Ionizer is used to neutralize & clean surface dust from a circuit board. The ionizing bar is well designed and closely "balanced" in positive & negative ions produced meaning a close to zero residual charge after use unlike many competitive product.
Model 10006X Silent X-Stream™ Air Blade™ Air Knife cleans a small conveyor of dust and debris.
Standard Air BladeTM:
Two Model 10012 Standard Air Blade™ Air Knives are installed on a duct (one on top, one on bottom) to draw in waste fumes & exhaust. The air leaving the Air Knives hug the inside wall creating an excellent vacuum inside the duct.

Three 24” X-Stream™ Air Blade™ Ionizers Blow dust from Automotive Bumpers prior to painting. The NEX FLOW™ PLCFC controls the air on and off as required minimizing air consumption. In this case the static bars were “daisy-chained” together minimizing extraneous cable and reducing the number of power supplies needed.
Air Amplifier (9)
Air Amplifier for Boosting Vacuum System:
The Nex Flow™ Model 40001 – 1-1/4” adjustable air amplifier is designed to “amplify” air flow which means it can also “move” a significant amount of air. The Model 40001 amplifies 14 times the air consumed which means it can move 13 times the rated air consumption making it easy to vacuum and “move” or “draw” in dust created in a grinding operation and boost the effectiveness of any existing vacuum system.
The PLCFC is a PLC based system designed to turn compressed air on only when needed and to turn off 2 seconds after use. Used here to conserve air in the use of air amplifiers to cool hot material, the PLCFC turns on the air when the sensor “sees” the part and off 2 second after the sensor no longer sees the item. System is simple, reliable and plugs and play.
Removing Mist from Machining Process:
The Nex Flow™ Model 40001 – 1-1/4” adjustable air amplifier is designed to “amplify” air flow which means it can also “move” significant amount of air in “vacuum”. The compact Model 40001 draws in a large volume of dust created in machining easily and efficiently without the need of a costly vacuum system.
Cooling of Steel Ingots - Adjustable Air Amplifier:
The Nex Flow™ Model 40002 – 2” adjustable air amplifier is extremely efficient in cooling. It amplifies air flow 15 times at the exit of the unit and 45 times 6” away. The flow is laminar with significant air velocity to cut through any hot “boundary layer” of air on hot material. Here two rows of Model 40002 air amplifiers cool hot steel ingots on a conveyor line from several hundred degrees to a low enough temperature to handle by personnel.
Using Model AM20 Air Amplifiers to cool castings, cooling time was reduced by 20%.

Simply connect the snap-on collection attachments and clamp a 2” hose on the opposite side, hook up your compressed air and you are set to go. Comes complete with shut-off valve and magnetic swivel base to position the unit any way you want. The air “gap” can be adjusted for a weak to strong vacuum.
Air Jets / Air Nozzles (2)
Molding Machine Air Jet:
The Nex Flow™ Model 45002 – high force adjustable air jet amplifies air flow and creates a strong laminar flow of output air to be able to push injected molded material down and away from the mold after the molding process allowing for faster cycles times. Utilizing very little compressed air, the output air is amplified almost 25 times when it hits the target part with a strong laminar force to “push” the parts down and away from the mold.
Press Ram Cleaning Using Nozzles:
Model 47003 Nozzles are mounted along the circumference of a one meter diameter piston rod to blow off debris from it's surface. The Nozzles are operated only when the piston rod retracts in to the cylinder.

Vortex Tube (4)
Camera Housing Cooling (Vortex Tube):
Water cooling was originally used to cool the camera housing but this created water scale buildup and caused high maintenance costs. Due to space limitations & the need to eliminate water cooling of the camera, a Nex Flow™ Model 50025H Vortex Tube was used to cool camera housing.
Camera Lens Cooling Vortex Tube:
3 Number Model 50008H Model Vortex Tubes are use to directly cool the lens of a camera subjected to high radiant heat.

Panel Cooler (2)
Cooling of Electrical & Electronics Panels:
A Vortex tube type cabinet enclosure panel cooler Nex Flow™ Model 63030A is used to cool and purge cabinet panels in a high temperature and dusty atmosphere. Ordinary air conditioners fail often in such bad environments and the maintenance costs are very high with replacement of filters, replacement of compressors, downtime and the need for a condensate drain. The Nex Flow™ Panel Cooler eliminates these maintenance costs, offsetting any increased energy use while providing reliable, maintenance free air conditioning.
Silent X StreamTM Panel Cooler:
Silent X-Stream™ Cabinet Enclosure Cooler / Cooling Frigid-X™ series for electronic control panels provide a low cost method of both purging and cooling electrical and electronic control panels by using a stainless steel vortex tube to create cold air from ordinary compressed air. Utilizing a hot and cold end muffling kit the unit is made extra quite to under 64 dBA depending on capacity.

Static Eliminators - (Ionizing Bars) (2)
Fibrous Web Ionizing Bar:
Two Model 13018 RN - 19" Static bars neutralize the charge in powder adhesives as soon as the powder exits the dosing unit. Static charge makes the powder fly apart and causes uneven application on the web. Removing the static charge insures even application.
Ionizing Bar Used on Plastic Straw Extrusion Machine New:
A Model 14018 – 19” extra strong static bar is used to eliminate static from straws as the extruded straw passes under the static bar to prevent the stack of straws produced from flying apart due to high static charge. The extra strong static bar allows for high speed production of the straws that a regular strength static bar cannot address adequately.
