PEEK Pico Super Air Nozzle Assures Precise Non-Marring

EXAIR’s PEEK Pico Super Air Nozzle™ has been engineered to produce the highest performance attainable from a tiny nozzle. It delivers one of the smallest, most precise blowoffs available with an efficient, high volume, high velocity airflow. The overall length of the air nozzle measures only 0.63 inches (16mm) with a diameter of only 0.20 inches (5mm), permitting installation in tight spaces. Its PEEK thermoplastic construction provides self-lubricating qualities with a low coefficient of friction to produce non-marring protection for sensitive materials. PEEK thermoplastic has excellent chemical resistance and can withstand many harsh environments found in chemical, plating, etching and metal cleaning processes and thrives in seawater environments. The PEEK Pico Super Air Nozzle is suitable for blowoff, cooling and drying applications located in general industrial or corrosive environments.
