At EXAIR, it’s our business to make sure that you get the most out of your compressed air system. We’ve got a Six Step plan to help you do just that, and one of those steps is the topic of today’s blog:
We have a couple of ways to help with step #1. You can use a Digital Flowmeter to measure your total compressed air usage, and take advantage of our Efficiency Lab service to determine the consumption of individual compressed air devices that may be running up the total. Based on our performance tests of those devices, we can recommend suitable EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air Products to replace them with, along with the expected reductions in air consumption & noise levels…quieter is always better too.
Once you get our recommended replacements in (I mean, why wouldn’t you?), they’re going to be part of your compressed air system, so naturally, we want to make sure you get the most out of them as well. Key considerations are suitable supply lines, and proper installation.
In the case of a Super Air Nozzle or Air Jet, these are oftentimes one and the same. They’re all small enough, and lightweight enough, to be adequately supported by compressed air piping (assuming the piping is adequately supported,) metal tubing (via a compression fitting adapter,) or even mounting solutions like our Stay Set Hoses.
Sometimes, though, you need a firm, vibration-resistant mounting…that’s where we recommend our Swivel Fittings. A hex retainer tightly locks the ball in position, but allows for easy repositioning when loosened. They come in standard NPT sizes from 1″ NPT down to 1/8″ NPT, and we even have them for the M4, M5, and M6 metric threads for our Atto, Pico, and Nano Super Air Nozzles.
Even a highly efficient blow off needs to be aimed well in order to do its job well. If you’d like to discuss how to get the most out of your compressed air system – or our products – give me a call.
