Dragon High Power fan nozzle for protective enclosures
Camera applications in dirty industrial environments require appropriate devices to keep the windows of protective enclosures free from dust, moisture and oily substances. Pneumatic devices from autoVimation such as wind curtains, protective flaps and air nozzles have proven themselves to be efficient protection methods against window contamination that impairs vision.
Introducing the Dragon High Power fan nozzle, the German manufacturer now provides a new solution for its Salamander, Gecko and Orca series protective enclosures, which combines economical compressed air consumption and low noise emissions with high blowing force. The tiltable air nozzle blows a fan-shaped air jet over the enclosure window at a 20° angle.
Due to its blowing force of 3.3 N at a pressure of 5 bar and an air flow of 333 liters per minute, Dragon High Power prevents dirt accumulation and can remove even severe pollution. The blowing force of the nozzle corresponds to an open pipe with an inner diameter of 4 mm, but the energy consumption is 33 % lower and noise is reduced by 40 % to 82 dB(A). The air fan is wide enough to clean 3-inch windows at only 50 mm from the nozzle outlet. Therefore, Dragon High Power can be directly affixed to the protective camera enclosure, saving installation space. autoVimation also supplies brackets with dovetail connection as accessories for flexible mounting and orientation of the nozzle on the enclosure.
