Nex Flow Air Products Corp. is a manufacturer of compressed air-operated products made to improve plant efficiency, improve energy efficiency, improve quality, and enhance the environment. In this research project, Nex Flow needs assistance in designing a new pneumatic part by combining Ring Vac and Air Amplifier and optimizing its performance through sizes and noise reduction. Toe main challenge of the company is the expertise to design, test, and optimize; they have challenges in optimizing some of their products through redesigning for an optimal product. The goal of the research is to allow Nex Flow to conquer the design and optimize Vacuum and Coanda effects. Toe main outcome of the research is to help Nex Flow solve their challenges in design and optimization and to potentially finalize a new product. For Humber, our hope is to assist the client to optimize compressed air hole size to minimize air and maximize vacuum effects.
