Exair’s 303SS Air Jets are designed to provide reliable and efficient blow-off and cleaning within corrosive, high-temperature or wash-down environments. These 1/8 NPT stainless steel nozzles replace open tubes and pipe nipples on parts cleaning, drying and cooling operations. With temperature rated to 400°F, they will produce as much as 1.25 lbs of force, the company says.

Available in two styles, the high-velocity nozzles provide maximum force with a confined and directed airstream. The adjustable style’s micrometer air gap indicator is designed to allow easy control of the air.

The nozzles employ the Coanda effect to pull in surrounding ambient air and increase the total volume of air impacting the target area. Both the outlet and inlet can be ducted for remote positioning. The jets also require a small amount of compressed air, which can be less than half that of open air lines in the plant, the company says. Typical noise level reductions are 8-10 dBA.
