WHAT'S NEW

NEW SUPER LOW FLOW NOZZLE SERIES “SLF”

SLF Dry Ice Blasting Nozzles and Applicators

CINCINNATI: Cold Jet, Inc., the leader in dry ice technology since 1980, has expanded their nozzle offering by introducing the new Super Low Flow Nozzle series “SLF.”

The SuperLowFlow nozzle series was developed in response to feedback from sectors of the dry ice blast cleaning marketplace that include developing countries and smaller factories in industrialized countries where compressed air systems are typically smaller in capacity. However, initial feedback on the new SLF nozzles shows that everyone benefits because the advantages of using SLF nozzles - even in plants with larger compressed air volume capacity - include:

  • Smaller diameter air drops are sufficient — more existing connections qualify, thereby saving money by reducing pipe fitting needs and by increasing the utility of the Cold Jet dry ice blasting system.
  • Electrical energy savings are generated by the lower volume of air consumed and the need to invest capital in compressed air production is decreased.
  • Fewer interruptions of the processes sharing compressed air resources occur.
  • Cleaning power for low flow nozzles is often better than for high flow nozzles, because low flow nozzles will more often operate at higher pressures given both plumbing and air demand irregularities that occur in typical plant environments.
  • Noise levels generated are lower than with high flow nozzles operating at the same pressure and the noise does not travel as far.
  • The recommended 3/4" (1.9cm) blast hose used with low flow nozzles is lighter, more flexible, and easier to manipulate and use than the 1” (2.5cm) blast hose most full flow nozzles are matched with, so operator fatigue is less.
  • The most common rental portable air compressors can run 2 Cold Jet dry ice blasting systems using these nozzles at nearly full-rated air pressure. (185 scfm @ 100 psig / 5.2 m3/min @ 6.9 bar)

And, as envisioned, the plants and shops with lower capacity compressed air systems can utilize Cold Jet dry ice blasting systems without having to invest in new compressed air systems. Like all nozzles developed for Cold Jet’s single-hose dry ice blasting systems since 1986, the “SLF Series” is compatible with any single-hose system produced by Cold Jet.
