Passing of the Torch

I never realize how far reaching social media really is. When I announced my retirement I was overwhelmed by so many responses from my twitter followers. I try to post funny stuff as well an informational content. Sometimes I get a response to them and sometimes I don’t. What I did not realize is how many people are reading them but do not respond. My retirement announcement really drew them out of the woodwork. I am humbled and truly appreciative of the camaraderie we developed through cyberspace.

I am sure that the rest of our team @EXAIR_RB @EXAIR_DW @EXAIR_BF @EXAIR_KE @EXAIR_LE @EXAIR_NR  @EXAIR_DP  all will be as entertaining and informative so I would recommend that you follow them as I ride off into the sunset. If you like funny videos then follow @profpenurious and watch his videos on YouTube. Click here for a sample starring yours truly.

Your Compressed Air Application Solution, Right Where You Need It

In addition to providing the most efficient and quietest engineered air nozzles on the market, EXAIR also carries a wide variety of methods to get that efficient, quiet, and effective air flow where you need it to go. We’ve got Swivel Fittings that allow you to aim it and lock it in. We’ve also got Stay Set Hoses that easily bend, but keep their position until you bend them again. These hoses are actually pretty commonly used with our Magnetic Bases, for quick & easy installation of a nozzle system.

A great many blow off applications, though, just need the simplest and easiest of all mounting options: your hand. That’s where our Safety Air Guns come in. We’ve got everything from a Precision Safety Air Gun fitted with an Atto Super Air Nozzle (2.5 SCFM air consumption; produces 2 ounces of blowing force) to our Model 1218 Super Blast Safety Air Gun, fitted with our largest Super Air Nozzle (460 SCFM; 23 POUNDS of blowing force,) and twenty-nine models in between. Most are available with Chip Shields and/or rigid pipe extensions (up to 6 feet in length), and some are even available with the Stay Set Hoses I mentioned above. No matter what your application, I bet we have a Safety Air Gun that’ll work for you…try us. Every day, we help users get the right product by talking about their application, and matching the flow & force of a particular product to it.

If you’ve got our catalog (free for the taking, by the way,) it lays out the information in a very user-friendly manner, in case you want to try your hand at sizing it yourself. Keep two things in mind:

*We’re always here to help. If you want to discuss the application(s) and/or product selection, you can call, email, or Live Chat with us anytime.
*If you feel good about a selection based on our published performance data, we’re still here to help when “looked good on paper” fails to translate accurately to real-world conditions.

How Big Is Big? It’s…Well…It’s Big.

How familiar are you with the products your company makes? Next week, I’ll have been an EXAIR Application Engineer for three years. I can rattle off a good deal of our part numbers and performance specifications from memory, and I’ve got bookmarks in various publications that I keep handy at my desk for other various tidbits of information. I use the latter to support my belief that I do indeed know everything…I just can’t remember it all at once.

Every once in a while, though, no matter how much you KNOW about something, you don’t really THINK about it until you SEE it.  I got a good reminder of this just the other day, when a customer called to arrange return of a Safety Air Gun. Their Purchasing Agent got a request for “the largest, most powerful air gun they’ve got” – which they identified in our catalog as the Model 1218-6 Super Blast Safety Air Gun - so they used our  “Quick Order” feature on our website,  and had it the next day.

I know (yes, from memory) that this is the one equipped with a 1-1/4” NPT ball valve (spring loaded to self-close if dropped), a six foot pipe extension, and our largest Super Air Nozzle…the Model 1120, which produces 23 pounds of blowing force. It is indeed our largest and most powerful air gun, and, WAY more than they needed, which we found out after talking over their needs.  Based on this discussion, they decided to, instead, try our Model 1310-6 Heavy Duty Safety Air Gun – it’s got a six inch pipe extension, and our Model 1100 Super Air Nozzle. Its 13 ounces of force is ideal for a wide variety of general industrial blow off/cleaning uses…including theirs. They’re quite happy with it, and we were just as happy to arrange return of the Model 1218-6 for full credit, per our 30 Day Unconditional Guarantee.

Just to give you an idea of the extreme difference in size between these two Safety Air Guns:

…and to be clear, John is holding the 1218-6 Super Blast on the left, and the 1310-6 Heavy Duty on the right

As you can see, no matter what your needs are, we’ve probably got the safety air gun you’re looking for. If you want to find out for sure, you can call, email, or Live Chat with us about your application(s) and/or product selection. We look forward to seeing how we can help.

‘Tis the Season for Giving

Traveling in to work this morning, I noticed a lot of cars having had their windshields scraped of frost. It is that time of year again and the stores already have holiday decorations on display. It won’t be long before the gift exchanges start. Speaking of giving, EXAIR is giving away a FREE Soft Grip Safety Air Gun with the purchase of a Super Air Knife.

How Air Knife Works

Air knives are used in industrial applications for drying, removing excess oils and liquids, blow off and cooling. Their unique design draws in ambient air up to 40:1 and adds it to the output air stream achieving more air flow than the compressed air consumed.

They are giving away a safety air gun because they would like you to try something that is more safe, OSHA compliant, and efficient

.

Many inexpensive air guns sold through catalogs and industrial supply companies have high air consumption and produce noise levels that violate OSHA requirements. Some may even generate dangerous dead ind pressures that can result in serious or fatal injuries if blocked.

Interested in saving some compressed air and providing a safer workplace, then give a call to our application engineers and they will help you pick out a product that fits your needs. EXAIR has a no risk policy.  They provide a 30 day evaluation on whatever cataloged item you order out. If for any reason within that time you are not satisfied, you can return it for full credit.
