EXAIRs new 1 NPT Back Blow Air Nozzle has been designed to blow debris and liquids from pipe or hose inside diameters, axle housings, bores, holes, internal threads and other internal part features found in hydraulic cylinders, gear boxes, differential housings and more. An array of holes provide a forceful 360° airflow to clear out coolant, chips and light oils from machining processes. This nozzle prevents blowing chips further into a part, tube or pipe and eliminates any safety hazard created by blowing debris out the far end of a pipe or tube.
The Model 1008SS Back Blow Air Nozzle is our largest back blow nozzle yet. It will fit inside openings as small as 2-in. and is effective on diameters up to 16 inches, so it can handle small and large diameters. It is constructed of type 316 stainless steel to provide durability and superior resistance to corrosion. Installation is simplified and a secure fit is assured with 4.7mm flats milled on the body. Since airflow is directed back toward the operator, personal protective equipment is recommended. Extension pipes of 12, 36 and 72-in. are stocked to provide necessary reach for longer tube and pipe clean out. A 1/4 NPT model for 7/8 to 4-in. diameters is also available.
The Back Blow Air Nozzle meets OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.95(a) and 29 CFR 1910.242(b) for noise and outlet pressure. It is also CE compliant.
