Compressed Air Nozzle and Hose Tips
WHAT IS AN AIR NOZZLE?
The Supreme Air Products Corp Air Nozzles can help save you money my lowering the cost of compressed air as well as reduce operating noise ensuring employee safety. Air nozzles are efficient by using a series of angles and air passages. Using the principle of coanda effect air nozzles amplify the air 25 times. Supreme Air Products Corp offers a series of different air nozzles sizes with either a 1/8 NPT inlet or a ¼ NPT inlet. Nozzles are offered in aluminum construction or stainless-Steel construction.
How does an Air Nozzle work?
(A) Compressed air enters the Air Nozzle through a male NPT inlet. It is forced out through a series of small gaps and travels out over a series of angles and groves at a high velocity.
(B) The airflow exits gaps over a ‘coanda’ profile, thereby creating a vacuum which entrains the surrounding air into the primary airstream amplifying it up to 25 times.
(C) This combined flow of primary & surrounding air is then exhausted from the Air Nozzle at a high velocity and high volume.
All Supreme Air Products Corp Air Nozzles meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) maximum dead ended pressure requirements.
Air Nozzles are the smallest amplifiers for precise point type applications. If a larger blowoff area is required, our Air Jets are the more efficient choice! Click here for information relating to SUPREME AIR PRODUCTS Air Jets.

Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions relating to our Air Nozzles. If you need additional help with your application and/or can’t find an answer to your question, please call our factory at 1-289-236-2001 or email an Application Engineer at [email protected]
1. Are Air Nozzles OSHA safe?
Yes. Our Air Nozzles meet OSHA standard CFR 1910.242(b) for dead-end pressure. In addition, noise levels are significantly reduced with our Air Nozzles.
2. What is the material of Air Nozzles?
Our Air Nozzles are available in four materials (Aluminum, Brass, 303 Stainless Steel and 316 Stainless Steel). Zinc & PEEK Plastic Air Nozzles can be manufactured upon special request.
3. What are the temperature limits for your Air Nozzles?
Aluminum for temperatures up to 275°F (121°C)
PEEK for temperatures up to 320°F (160°C)
303 Stainless Steel for temperatures up to 400°F (204°C)
316 Stainless Steel for temperatures up to 1000°F (538°C)
4. Will Air Nozzles replace an open air line with identical effectiveness?
Both the dead end pressures and noise levels of an open air line pose a very serious safety issue! Our Air Nozzles will provide noise reduction up to 10 dBA as well as reduced air consumption when compared to open lines, tubes, and jets. All this is done while maintaining OSHA-mandated dead end pressure levels.
Due to the significant reduction in compressed air consumption, SUPREME AIR PRODUCTS Air Nozzles may not always provide the 1:1 blow-off force as an open air line operating at same supply pressures. With that said, there are many applications that will not require the high force of an open air line. If you need a higher force, we can provide larger Air Nozzles that will produce the required force and still comply with OSHA standards.
