2011 POY Finalists: Compressed Air
Finalists in Compressed Air in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The Model 1108 SS Atto Super Air Nozzle has been engineered for precise blowoff with efficient, high-volume, high-velocity airflow. The nozzle measures only 0.5-in. with a diameter of only 0.16-in., permitting installation in tight spaces. High amplification of airflow and a strong blowing force of 2.0 oz are achieved with minimal air consumption of 2.5 SCFM at 80 PSIG. The airflow cannot be blocked, which meets the OSHA standard for dead-end pressure, 29 CFR 1910.242(b). Sound level is low at 58 dBA, which meets OSHA noise requirement 29 CFR 1910.95(a) and is CE compliant.
