Every application has its own unique needs and solution characteristics. Most of the time, thankfully, we can meet those needs and solution requirements with our stock products and through discussions with our Application Engineers. There are, however, a number of applications which need something more than what we have readily available on the shelf. Sometimes those needs relate to a special Air Knife (no problem there), a special cold fraction preset on a Vortex Tube (no problem there, either), or even specially machined flanges designed to bolt into the application (again, no problem for EXAIR).
And then there are solutions like that which is shown above, comprised of stock products and off-the-shelf components, but assembled to meet a specific requirement of the application. In this case, the customer needed the performance of an Air Knife, with the mobility of a Safety Air Gun. The purpose of combining these two devices was to allow for wide area blowoff in a single pass, as opposed to multiple passes needed with a traditional setup. And, with a little legwork on the backend in our engineering department, we created a specialized part number to meet this application need.
So, when this customer needed another solution to replicate this setup, they knew who to contact, and were certain that they would be able to find exactly what they need.
If you have an application in need of an application-specific solution, contact an EXAIR Application Engineer. We’ll be happy to help.
