powerful nozzles efficiently deliver strong blowoff force that is ideal for the quick burst of air needed for part ejection from a belt or web.
Super Air Nozzle Ejects Rejected Bottles
Customer has a bottling plant and they wanted to detect and remove 20oz filled plastic bottles that have been improperly capped on the conveyor line. The method of ejection needed to be both powerful enough to completely remove the rejected bottle, but precise enough to remove only the rejected bottle and not others near it that were acceptable. Because it is a food-grade application a Model 1104SS 3/8 NPT Stainless Steel Super Air Nozzle would be perfectly suited. The powerful, focused force produced by the nozzle can completely remove the rejected bottle from the line. The size and shape of the airflow pattern it produces is just right to remove only one bottle. When the airflow is timed in conjunction with the upstream inspection system, the air nozzle eliminates all of the rejected bottles from the line while creating little disruption to the remainder of the process.
