Frequently Asked Questions

I must confess that I have a lot of questions for which I need to find an answer in a given day. Those questions might come from plain old curiosity about a subject which interests me at the time.

  1. Which is better a whole house fan that is direct drive or belt drive and why?
  2. Which is the most effective pesticide now that I cannot get my grubby little hands on Chlordane or Diazinon any longer?
  3. Or maybe I have an odd desire to try and recall from high school chemistry what were the names and order of the valence shells on an atom. Weird, I know. But interesting none the less.

If you read my blog last week about Problem Solvers, you will better understand why my curiosity takes such a direction.

What I will typically do is jump onto the Internet, type in my search term and page through all the choices that come up. I usually end up at some company’s FAQ page or I find some discussion thread that others have had about the same question. It is usually fairly easy to at least satisfy the curiosity for the moment.

Some of the questions I get on an average day from customers might be:

  1. How do I set the gap on an Adjustable Air Amplifier?
  2. What does the Vortex Tube performance chart really tell me?
  3. Can the EFC control 2 solenoid valves?

For these questions and more, I rely on EXAIR’s Frequently Asked Questions page at

This part of the EXAIR Web site is a repository for all the usual questions and some unusual ones too. We have recently updated these pages with new and interesting questions about new product as well as existing ones.

If you have a burning desire to know what a “cold fraction” is or what SLPM stands for, hop onto the FAQ page to find out the answer.
