Duck Bill Blower Nozzle
SONNY’S Duck Bill Blower Nozzle multiplies the power of two blower producers into a single concentrated stream of air that surpasses the drying capacity of two independent blowers. Sonny’s Duck Bill solves three distinct challenges when used in different stages of the drying process. First, as a Wet Environment nozzle the increased power displaces water more quickly. Second, when used as a general drying option, the Duck Bill BlowerNozzle can eliminate “skunk stripe”. And, third when used immediately before a Buff-n-Dry machine, this nozzle dramatically reduces residual water droplets to improve drying performance, and extend the capacity of your drying material.
