FOX TrimAway systems utilize powerful and efficient regenerative blowers to generate "motive" air from the pressure output of the blower. This air flow is ported into the side of the venturi. The FOX TrimAway venturi is designed so that all of this motive (pressure) air mist, in essence, make a perpendicular turn and flow through the adjustable gap in the venturi. The air is flowing at such a high rate and speed, suction is generated, due to Bernoulli's principal, at the intake side of the venturi. Each FOX TrimAway system is factory tested and adjusted for maximum suction. However, the adjustable gap allows for suction adjustment in the field.
The waste (typically edge trim) is fed into the suction side of the venturi and takes a straight path through the venturi. This eliminates the trim from passing through any moving parts. Continuous trim can stay continuous, there is no need for it to be chopped, since it does not pass through any fan blades or other moving parts. System maintenance is very low since there are no moving parts coming in contact with the trim. After the waste enters the venturi and reaches the point where the motive air and suction air join, the waste can be conveyed long (or short) distances with a very powerful stream (combined suction and motive) of air to a waste collection point.
Typical Applications Include:
- Paper, paperboard, film, foil, textiles and nonwovens
- Waste with adhesives
- Continuous trim
- Narrow to wide
