Aluminum Adjustable Air Amplifier NOT Anodized, by another manufacturer, after only about a year in service. The plant environment would not be considered extreme or corrosive. For aluminum, pitting is by far the most common type of corrosion. The corrosion generally shows itself as extremely small pits that reach a maximum penetration of a minor fraction of the metal’s thickness.
This pitting and corrosion of un-treated aluminum adversely affects the fine ( .002 inch ) slot orifice used in many of the products such as Air Knives, Air Amplifiers and Air Wipes. Adversely affecting the intended performance and leads to : Increased Air Consumption, un-even air flow/ dead spots and increased noise levels!
ALL of the Aluminum Nex Flow products are ANODIZED for protection in industrial applications.
PLASTIC ? Nex Flow ONLY uses STAINLESS SHIMS in their Products !
HARDWARE ? Nex Flow ONLY uses STAINLESS Cap Screws in assembly of their products ! ( Others used Plated Hardware )
UL Listed Enclosure/Panel Coolers: All NEMA ratings ( 12, 3R and 4/4X ) are Stainless ! ( Not theirs )
SPOT COOLERS: Tool Cooler Cold Gun and Adjustable Spot Coolers are STAINLESS construction ! (what ?, theirs is Aluminum )
VORTEX TUBES: NO Plastic here either. WELDED STAINLESS construction with precision finished machined Brass Generators and Viton 0-Rings. The most efficient design with the highest rated cooling in the industry.
O-Rings ? Nex Flow uses only Viton in ALL their products: Air Amplifier, Panel Coolers, Vortex Tubes, Tool & Spot Coolers, etc. A notch better ( because they are ) than the manufacturers that use Buna-N
We invite you to compare. Why pay more for cheap product ? Nex Flow – Better Products/Better Price
