Maxum says its Maxumizer Air Blower systems feature durable, long lasting, science-based designs that use less energy than conventional systems and are optimized for powerful blow-off and parts drying. This permits them to provide higher output with less energy in the bes- performance range for surface blow-off and drying applications. In most cases this design will use 30 to 50 percent less horsepower while running at much slower speeds.
Maxum's approach to air blow-off is illustrated in its drive system. The Maxum Bearing Bridge drive system permits industrial parts drying and air blow-off systems to use less energy and effectively run on less horsepower at slower speeds, all the while lasting longer. This science-based drive system, which replaces the typical belt-driven system, employs two separate bearing cases located on either side of the drive pulley. The unique design provides a properly distributed bearing load and dramatically reduces heat while greatly improving service life. The Maxum developed Bearing Bridge provides 10 to 15 times the "L10" bearing life of older cantilever drives that rapidly fail from the uneven overhung belt load, according to the company.
Every Maxum Air Device includes standard output flow and pressure data and every Maxum Blower provides CFM, pressure and horsepower required. As a result, users don’t have to guess or “call the factory” to correctly select Maxum products. Maxum has also developed blower enclosures that reduce the operating sound level below 75dB at three-foot distance. These corrosion resistant polymer enclosures have a small footprint, standard gages to monitor performance, oversize filters with pre-filters and an integrated skid mount.
Another prime example of Maxum's science-based approach is its new converging and laminar flow technology. With traditional blow-off devices, the focused air starts to expand as soon as it leaves the nozzle. With Maxum's converging and laminar flow technology, the air reaches the part in a stronger, faster, more concentrated form, improving efficiency while saving energy. All Maxumizer Air Knives, Air Nozzles and the Nozzle Bar system employ this converging and laminar flow technology.
Maxum's air blow-off and drying equipment remove water, liquids and debris, successfully preparing products for assembly, packaging, labelling, inkjet printing, inspection and powder coating using energy efficient blow-off equipment.
