Since 1983 EXAIR Corporation has been the one stop shop for all your Intelligent Compressed Air needs. Throughout this time, we have taken pride in providing quality, engineered products for our customers. With innovation as a major driving force in our success, we are constantly looking to improve on existing product lines while also releasing new products into the market. These new products are often recipients of various awards and our trophy case out front has grown substantially in size over my 10 years here. In fact, I think we’re about due for another soon after our most recent additions.
In April 2020, just as the pandemic was increasing momentum, Plant Engineering issued their 2019 awards. In 2019 EXAIR received the prestigious Product of the Year award from Plant Engineering. In the compressed air category, EXAIR took both 2nd and 3rd place bringing home a silver and bronze to add to our trophy case.
Coming in 3rd with the Bronze award was EXAIR’s Gen4 Ionizing Bar. The Gen4 Ionizing Bar was redesigned and engineered to perform up to 25% better than previous generations. In addition to improving on decay speeds, it also increased the effective range by 100%!
Life expectancy has been extended by insertion molding the stainless steel ion emitters into a durable engineered polymer. There are no openings or grooves to accumulate dirt that could cause shorting or arcing. A 5 kV rugged, integrated ground steel reinforced power cable protects against abrasion, tears, and damage common in a rugged industrial environment.
Coming in 2nd place with the Silver award was EXAIR’s Soft Grip Atto Back Blow Safety Air Gun. Using the smallest Back Blow Nozzle available, this gun delivers a strong blast of air capable of blowing out debris and liquids from the ID of small pipes or hose, channels, bores, holes, internal threads, and internal part features. The ergonomic design keeps the operator’s hand comfortable so it can be used for hours without fatigue. A 360° array of holes on the nozzle blows backwards clearing out coolant, chips, and light oils from machining processes. A Chip Shield installed on the extension of the gun then protects operators from any flying debris.
Another year, and another couple of awards for EXAIR. You can count on the sun coming up in the morning, and you can count on EXAIR to consistently provide new innovative products. Year in and year out we continue to provide new solutions for common applications. Give us a call, we’ll be happy to help determine how we can help you improve on your current processes.
