I think we have all heard the mantra Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – a phrase that is thought to have originated back in 70’s when environmental protection became a governmental policy.
We at EXAIR can help your company follow this important principle and help to keep your costs down as well.
Reduce – Reduce the number of times you change out your coolant, reduce your wastewater. Our Reversible Drum VAcs and Chip Trappers help keep your coolant clean by providing a simple and effective method to remove and/or strain your coolant.
Also, remember this – they are VERY hard to break or ruin. If you have one of our liquid handling Reversible Drum Vacs or Chip Trapper units, and the performance isn’t quite as you remember it to be, give us a call. We can help to trouble shoot and narrow in on the root cause. Most of the time, it is a simple fix, such as a air leak or a change to the air supply system that has caused a drop in performance. If we have eliminated all of those possible causes, we can offer the RDVREFURB option. Simply send in your Reversible Drum Vac pump unit, and we will do a free evaluation. Then we’ll let you know what we find, and provide a quote for the repair. The repair typically involves a thorough cleaning, replacement of a few basic parts, and then setting and testing to original factory specification. Because the unit has no moving parts, there isn’t much that can break down or go wrong. Don’t throw away that unit, REDUCE the amount of waste you create.
Reuse – Maybe you have a Super Air Knife in storage that is not in use, and you come up with a need, but the Knife doesn’t quite match the application. We can provide new custom shim to change the air flow pattern. Perhaps you have a 24″ Super Air Knife, but the new application requires only 18″ of airflow. You can send the knife in and we can clean it up and install a new custom shim to provide the exact airflow pattern that meets your requirements. Or, we can send the new shim directly to you for your team to install. Don’t let the unused product lie around, REUSE it for another process or application.
Recycle – If for what ever reason a product has been deemed to be no-longer viable and cannot be reused, the time comes to dispose of it. We hope that you would take the time to recycle it properly. With materials of construction including brass, aluminum and type 303 and type 316 stainless steels, most EXAIR products can be RECYCLED as common metals and you may even get a little money back!
To discuss your processes and how an EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air Product can provide a beneficial service, feel free to contact EXAIR and myself or one of our other Application Engineers can help you determine the best solution.
