11" Standard Air Wipe Nex Flow Ring-Blade Air Blow-Off System is easy to mount and maintain and reduces both compressed air consumption and noise levels.
11" Standard Air Wipe Nex Flow Ring-Blade Air Blow-Off System 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.
11" Standard Air Wipe Nex Flow Ring-Blade Air Blow-Off System 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 11" Standard Air Wipe Nex Flow Ring-Blade Air Blow-Off System.

How The 11" Standard Air Wipe Nex Flow Ring-Blade Air Blow-Off System Works
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.
The wet or dirty material (D) direction of travel
is against the flow.

11" Standard Air Wipe Nex Flow Ring-Blade Air Blow-Off System - Materials of Construction
All X-Stream Ring-Blade Air Wipes are anodized aluminum construction with stainless steel shims and brass fittings or 316L stainless steel with stainless fittings and hose. Standard units come with rubber hose connecting the twin pieces. Moderate temperature units (to 400 degrees F or 204 degrees C) come with stainless steel hose. High temperature units (to 800 degrees F or 427 degrees C) are al 316L stainless with stainless hose and fittings. The exception is 9 and 11 which have no hoses nor fittings. Each half piece has two inlet connections, ¼ NPT for the 9 and 11.

11" Standaard Air Wipe Nex Flow Ring-Blade Air Blow-Off System Is Cost Effective
Example Of An Air Saving Calculation
1. From the chart showing air flow through a hole, assume we have a circular tube that is 4" in diameter. It has a circumference of 3.14159 X diameter or 12.57 inches. Assume it has 1/16" holes spaced ½ apart with a total number of 24 holes. The air pressure in the system is 60 PSIG.
2. From the chart each 1/16" hole consumes 4.23 SCFM at 60 PSIG. Total air consumed is 24 X 4.23 = 101.52 SCFM.
3. From the compressed air consumption chart , a 4" diameter Ring-Blade consumes 49 SCFM at 60 PSIG.
4. Assuming a compressed air cost
of 30 cents/1000 standard cubic feet and an
8 hour day operation for 200 days per year.
5. The Nex Flow System Will Cost:
6. The Savings per year using the Nex Flow System will be:
