Super Blast Safety Air Guns – High Power Blow Off

Do you need a hand-held tool to blow off a wide area, or something at a long distance? EXAIR has you covered with our Super Blast Safety Air Guns. These Safety Air Guns provide the strongest blowing force of any EXAIR Air Guns – ideal for long distance, wide area blow off, cooling, and drying applications. The comfortable foam rubber handle provides a firm grip, a spring-loaded valve instantly shuts off the air supply if the air gun is dropped.

Cleaning a wide area of debris

All of our Super Air Nozzle Clusters and Large Super Air Nozzles can have the added convenience of a comfortable foam rubber handle and our easy to operate spring-loaded manual valve that automatically shuts off it dropped.

The nozzle material is Zinc Aluminum Alloy, with Stainless Steel available for the models 1214SS and 1215SS. The base Safety Air Guns are 10″ – 15″ long (nozzle type dependent), and a longer extension can be added, in either 3′ or 6′ lengths to gain access to hard to reach areas.

The table below provides a guide for performance of each of the Super Blast models, for comparison and to make selection easy.  We can provide more details, including dimensional drawings and air flow patterns as required. And as always, the Super Blast Safety Air Guns are in stock, and come with the EXAIR Unconditional 30 Day Guarantee.

When to use Compressed Air Receiver Tanks (and More)

I was recently working with a process Engineer at a food packaging plant on installing a Super Air Knife to blow excess water off a food product. This product was moving single file on a conveyor belt with about 6 feet between each product. The belt was moving pretty slow so we wanted to turn the air knife on only when the product was in front of the knife, which saves compressed air and energy. To do this we used the ELECTRONIC FLOW CONTROL (EFC). If the knife ran the entire time it would be wasting any air blowing during one of the 6′ long gaps. This would also put an unnecessary strain on their already taxed compressed air system. The EFC let him only supply air to the Knife when it saw a product on the belt.

This application worked perfectly, but they had one other issue. Throughout the day it seemed as if they were losing compressed air pressure at the knife. What they found was during peak compressed air usage in the plant the compressor couldn’t keep up with the demand. Fear not, the Super Air Knife was only running for 7 seconds and was off for 20 seconds. This was a perfect application for EXAIR’s Receiver Tank.

Receiver Tanks are great for applications that require an intermittent demand for a volume of compressed air. This can cause fluctuations in pressure and volume throughout the compressed air system with some points being “starved” for compressed air. EXAIR’s Model 9500-60 60 Gallon Receiver Tank can be installed near the point of high demand so there is an additional supply of compressed air available for a short duration. The time between the high volume demand occurrences should be long enough so the compressor has enough time to replenish the receiver tank.

If you have a process that is intermittent, and the times for and between blow-off, drying, or cooling allows, a Receiver Tank can be used to allow you to get the most of your available compressed air system. If you need any assistance calculating the need for a receiver, please let us help.

Note – Lee Evans wrote an easy to follow blog that details the principle and calculations of Receiver Tanks, and it is worth your time to read here.

Meet EXAIR’s Newest Application Engineer, Jordan Shouse

Hello Everyone, my name is Jordan Shouse and I’m the newest addition to the Application Engineering group here at the EXAIR Corporation! I may be new to the team here at EXAIR, but I am not new to helping my customers save money and better their process.

me

My background is in Metrology, I’ve worked with countless sectors of manufacturing including Automotive, Aerospace and Pharma to examine their quality processes then design and implement a strategy to better the quality, reduce scrap and improve the product ship rate to their customer. Working as an Application Engineer is really my bread and butter, as I enjoy digging into the hardest cases and finding a solution that even surprises myself sometimes!
While I do enjoy my work, I also enjoy my personal life. I consider myself a bit of a outdoorsman, anything from camping and hiking to just exploring new areas of this amazing earth! The past few years I’ve really gotten into the ocean, so much that I started a Salt Water Reef Aquarium about a year ago and it amazes me every day. Watching a little ecosystem that’s so complex in a 100 gallon tank grow and progress is at times breathtaking! (A lot of work, but breathtaking)
