In case you missed our blog on EXAIR having 4 finalists for Product of the Year 2014 from Plant Engineering there is a link here. Today however, I would like to focus on just one of those products, the Model 1104-PEEK, 3/8″ FNPT Peek Plastic Super Air Nozzle.
The 1104-PEEK is constructed out of PEEK Thermoplastic which is designed to be chemical resistant, non-marring, and carries a high temperature rating. The chemical resistance of PEEK plastic will help greatly in locations such as plating operations, chemical etching or cleaning metals, painting, or glass etching. The low friction characteristic of PEEK plastic makes it ideal when trying to blow off delicate surfaces which may be scratched by metallic blow off nozzles such as, painted surfaces, glass, plastics, or even polished metals. The PEEK thermoplastic is rated for environments up to 320°F (160°C). This can be ideal for paint or coating curing ovens. This could also come in handy around the exit of a furnace where there may be caustic fumes mixed with elevated temperatures.
When you combine all of the benefits from PEEK plastic with the engineered solutions from EXAIR, you will get an efficient, safe, engineered solution to your blow off application that will work in a caustic or hot environment, yet not mar a delicate surface.
If you have an 1104-PEEK already in your application, or are using another EXAIR product, please go and vote for us in the Plant Engineering Product of the Year awards. We greatly appreciate all who are willing to vote for any of our products and are proud to continue bringing you the best products we can offer that fit your every compressed air need.
