The other day, I had the pleasure of helping a caller with a question about a particular EXAIR product…he referenced a certain page in our catalog, but when I turned to that page in the current catalog that I keep on my desk, I quickly realized that we weren’t looking at the same book. I asked him which edition he had, and it was (gasp) our “Catalog 97.” From 1997. That’s right…the 20th Century.
Now, I’m old enough to remember when saying “20th Century” meant that something was new, modern, and technologically advanced. That meant, among other things, color TV, cruise control, push-button phones, and dial-up modems. Of course, let’s remember that, at the beginning of the 20th Century:
*The concept of powered flight was commonly ridiculed as a physical impossibility until two brothers from Dayton, Ohio lifted off from a North Carolina beach one day in 1903.
*An injury that broke the skin was potentially life-threatening: penicillin wasn’t developed until 1935.
*Pluto wasn’t a planet. OK; it isn’t now either, but back then it was because it hadn’t been discovered yet.
Back to my story about the caller, though: I grabbed our copy of “Old #97” so we’d be on the same page (literally), and was able to help him with his questions. I also made sure that we mailed him a copy of our current Catalog 26, of course. If you don’t have one, click here.
Inside, you’ll find details on all of our current products…some of which EXAIR has been making since 1983. Others have been introduced during my 3-year (so far) stint here, such as our:
*USB Data Logger for the Digital Flowmeter
*3-foot and 6-foot Extensions for Super Blast Safety Air Guns
If you want to know what’s new at EXAIR, you have to look quick…and often. We intend to keep providing current solutions to current applications – what’s yours? I bet we can help. Try us.
