Halloween / Harvest and left over pumpkins.

Well folks, it’s that time of year again.  I remember last year blogging about a transformer costume that was amazing.   I think this year the best costume I have seen so far has been this Iron Man cosplay.

At my house however the costumes aren’t quite technology advanced.  This year we will have Cinderella with red hair, and a new baby pumpkin.  Along with several jack-o-lanterns that will be carved this weekend.  Then the question is what to do with all the left over pumpkins.

The perfect answer, use compressed air and see how far you can launch them.  This is quite honestly the best recreational use of compressed air I have seen.  That’s right, I’m talking about Pumpkin Chunkin’.  This is exactly what happens when you have people with a certain skill set and some idle time.  While there aren’t any EXAIR products being used currently in this field it is still entertaining.

Since there weren’t any EXAIR products being use to chunk pumkins, I would like to share this video which shows several EXAIR Adjustable Air Amplifiers helping to create air flow and cool the brand new Corvette motor while it is dyno tested.

If you have any questions on how to use compressed air in your applications feel free to contact us.
