We field an awful lot of calls from customers who are seeking to cool something down. Some need to get a freshly heat treated, red-hot metal object down to a temperature where they can handle it safely. Others need to cool something to below room temperature, perhaps to solidify a coating that was applied at an elevated temperature. Sometimes, it’s an electrical enclosure that houses sensitive components that need to be protected from high heat.
Oftentimes, the environment is at ambient temperature, and the application can be solved by using our cost effective and efficient aluminum-constructed products. Other times, they’re going into aggressive surroundings, with an elevated temperature. For those situations, many of our products are available with higher temperature limits:
*Aluminum Super Air Knives (with polyester shims) can withstand temperatures up to 180°F (82°C). If that’s not good enough, they’re available, in all sizes, in stainless steel (including the shims), which makes them good up to 800°F (427°C).
*Standard Air Wipes, made of aluminum w/polyester shims, are likewise good to 180°F (82°C). The Super Air Wipes (which use SS shims) are good to 400°F (204°C) in aluminum, and 800°F (427°C) in stainless steel.
*Super Air Amplifiers, and aluminum Adjustable Air Amplifiers, are rated to 275°F (135°C). Stainless Steel Adjustable Air Amplifiers can operate in areas up to 400°F (204°C), and we even offer a 1-1/4” High Temperature Air Amplifier that’s good up to 700°F (374°C).
*Super Air Nozzles are available in Zinc Aluminum Alloy – good to 250°F (121°C), PEEK plastic – good to 320°F (160°C), and 316SS – good to 800°F (427°C).
*While the aluminum and stainless steel Line Vacs have comparable limits to our other products – 275°F (135°C) and 400°F (204°C) respectively, the High Temperature Line Vacs boast the highest temperature limits of any of our products…good to 900°F (482°C).
*Cabinet Coolers are sometimes necessary because of high internal heat loads (for example, an enclosure housing a variable frequency drive), but oftentimes, they’re needed because of the external heat load. We have High Temperature Cabinet Cooler Systems for areas with ambient temperatures above 125°F (52°C), up to 200°F (93°C) for use in boiler rooms, near furnaces/ovens, etc.
Regardless of how hot it gets, odds are, we have a product that will work for you. If you have questions about how EXAIR can solve your compressed air application – hot or not – give us a call!
