The Air Edger™ Flat Jet Air Nozzle, provides a powerful force while reducing compressed air use for a variety of blow off applications. The unit is 2″ wide and the gap is maintained by a shim. Changing or stacking various shim sizes allows you to set the force that you need for any particular application – from a light blow off to a powerful blow off force.
The Air Edger™ Flat Jet Air Nozzles are easy to mount and maintain, reducing both compressed air consumption and noise levels.
Model 47011 Air Edger™ Flat Jet is an extremely efficient flat jet air nozzle designed to provide a powerful stream of high velocity laminar flow and high force for blow off and cooling where air knives may not be enough.
The Nex Flow™ Air Edger™ Flat Jet is available with various size “gaps” all set by a flat shim. Three standard shim sizes are available – .004″ (.10 mm), .008″ (.2mm) and .020″ (.51 mm). One, two or more shims can be “stacked” for a larger gap and greater force.

COMPARED TO THE COMPETITION
It is not always clear how tests and measurements are made by competitors and therefore validating claims can be difficult since such values depend on how tests are done. Therefore we measured a competitive unit under the same conditions as we measured our units. The flat jet of the competitor is of a similar type except that they are using a saw tooth shim design and different internal dimensions. We obtained the following readings when measured using the same parameters as for Nex Flow units.
25.1 SCFM – 15 oz force (Published figures were 22 SCFM and 22 Oz force)
The force/SCFM is aratio of .54 as measured the same way as the Nex Flow Air Edger™
One measure of efficiency is the ratio of Force/Air Consumption. The higher the ratio the better the efficiency.
If we compare to that of the Nex Flow Model 47011-4 the ratio is 12/20.5 = .58
And for the Model 47011-8 the ratio is 21/31.3 = .67
In both cases the efficiency of the Nex Flow units are higher in the comparative tests done. Under the same conditions
