Exair’s 1004SS, M4 NPT back blow air nozzle delivers airflow for blowing debris and liquids from small pipe or hose inside diameters, channel, bores, holes, internal threads and other internal part features. An array of holes provide a 360-degree airflow to clear out coolant, chips and light oils from machining processes, the company says. This nozzle prevents blowing chips further into a part, tube or pipe and eliminates safety hazards created by blowing debris out the far end of a pipe or tube. 

The back blow air nozzle thread is M4 × 0.5 and manufactured with a small profile. This nozzle will fit inside openings as small as 1/4” (6.3 mm) and is effective on diameters up to 1” (25.4 mm). According to the company, it is constructed of type 316 stainless steel, installation is simplified and a secure fit is assured with flats milled on the body.

Chip shields to protect the operator from the exiting debris are available. Extension pipes are stocked in 6”, 12”, 24” and 36” to provide necessary reach for cleaning out longer tube and pipe diameters, the company says.
