Back-Blow Air Nozzle for Cleaning Tiny Inside Diameters

March 14, 2017
Effective airflow for blowing debris and liquids from channels, bores, holes, internal threads, etc. Forceful, 360-degree airflow Fits in openings as small as 0.25 in. Low noise, CE-compliant

EXAIR’s new Model 1004SS, M4 NPT back-blow air nozzle was designed to deliver the smallest, most effective airflow for blowing debris and liquids from small pipe or hose inside diameters, channel, bores, holes, internal threads, and other internal part features. An array of holes provides a forceful, 360-degree airflow to clear out coolant, chips, and light oils following machining processes.

This nozzle also 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 1004SS back-blow air nozzle thread is M4x0.5 and manufactured with a small profile. This nozzle will fit inside openings as small as 0.25 in. (6.3 mm) and is effective on diameters up to 1 in. (25.4mm). It is constructed of Type 316 stainless steel to provide durability and superior resistance to corrosion.

Installation is simplified and a secure fit is ensured with flats milled on the body.

Because airflow is directed back toward the operator, personal protective equipment is recommended. Chip shields to protect the operator from the exiting debris are available. Extension pipes are stocked in 6, 12, 24, and 36 in. to provide necessary reach for cleaning out longer tube and pipe diameters.

Sound level is low at 80 dBA, and the unit meets OSHA noise requirement 29 CFR 1910.95(a). It also is CE compliant.
