EXAIR’s products have been used for a very large selection of applications in almost every industry. Today I want to highlight a few that pertain to the Aerospace Industry.
From the main page, hover the mouse pointer over ‘KNOWLEDGE BASE‘ and the pop-up menu will appear as seen below. Select ‘APPLICATIONS’
On the left hand side of the screen you will see a gray navigation pane that shows Application with a list underneath. Scroll down the main page and you will see a second heading in the navigation pane labeled “Industry”. You can select your industry from the list provided. For today’s example we will select Aerospace.
Once the industry is selected there will be a new list of applications that are displayed in the center of the page. Simply select the application you would like more information on and the details will display.
Below, we showcase the application from a machine manufacturer for the Aerospace industry. This customer manufactured the production equipment of a flexible, porous material that is continuously passed through a wash tank prior to cutting to length. They were interested in speeding the drying process of this strand, and considered blowing hot air onto it. It was not feasible to install an electrically powered hot air blower or gun. They needed an air flow of approximately 15 SCFM at 200°F, and had 70 psig air supply with a large volume available. They utilized a Vortex Tube installed over the strand after it exited the dip tank. The Vortex Tube was oriented with the hot air exhaust blowing on to the strand to dry the strand. The customer stated that they not only met their expectations but exceeded the original hopes and were able to dry the product quicker and safer than expected.
This is just one of many applications that are showcased in the Application Database for the Aerospace industry. Those are just a small sampling of the thousands of applications that can be researched through the database. If you would like to share your application to the database, feel free to contact an Application Engineer.
