The Silvent F1 air nozzle is designed for improved spot cooling applications to maintain reduced temperature during the machining process. The nozzle’s design permits independent adjustment of airflow and temperature at the cutting site, which allows the operator to easily set air consumption in relation to the cold fraction required.
An optimal combination of airflow and temperature reduction extends tool life, blows away chips and contributes to higher precision machining, the company says. In addition, the nozzle’s low noise level complies with both the EU Machine Directive and OSHA safety standards. Other features include refrigeration capacity from 0-94 Btu/hr, air consumption from 0-17.7 scfm and a temperature reduction to -99oF.
Designed to replace existing standard nozzles, the compact nozzle and is available as a single unit on a Flexblow hose in three lengths from 16" to 24", or as a four-nozzle Flexblow unit in three lengths from 17" to 25". Both are supplied with magnetic bases.
