There is a new way to clean golf shoes! That is with an EXAIR Safety Air Gun to blow the grass off their cleats and shoes. In keeping with “new and better” methods, a golf course decided to purchase an air compressor, hose, and an air gun at the local hardware store. They mounted the compressor inside a room to keep the noise levels low. They put the air hose and air gun outside near the club house entrance for patrons to clean their spikes and shoes.
Problem: With most golf courses, they have the 9th and 18th greens near the club house. They started to get complaints about the noise that was being generated by the compressed air gun, especially when the golfers on the green were ready to putt.
Solution: The golf course contacted EXAIR because they saw that we were experts in the field of compressed air products with noise, safety and efficiency. I suggested the 1409SS Precision Safety Air Gun with chip shield. With our engineered air nozzles and Precision Safety Air Gun, we were able to reduce the noise level to 68 dBA. This is similar to a normal conversation at 3 feet (1 meter) away. Also with the chip shield, it will help contain the grass and mud, and help attenuate the noise level even lower. With the added features in saving compressed air, safety for dead end pressure, and localized hard hitting force, the golf course was excited to replace their current air gun.
When people go and purchase an air gun to use in their garage, shop, or even the golf course, one important factor that is overlooked is the air nozzle. No matter how good the air gun is manufactured, the nozzle can make the air gun extremely loud and inefficient. Just like a top-of-the-line paint gun, if the spray nozzle spits and sputters, you will never get a nice paint job. The same goes with air guns. EXAIR offers Safety Air Guns with engineered Super Air Nozzles to create the best combination for compressed air usage, i.e. low noise levels, safety, hard hitting force, and increased efficiency.
