EXAIR Products “Built to Last”

When I hear “Built to Last” ads come to mind such as Ford Trucks and Craftsman tools. Advertising promoting product integrity will always get my attention. Although I have not owned a Ford truck, I have many friends that have and swear by them, so I’m thinking my next truck might be a Ford. I have owned a lot of Craftsman tools and put them through rigorous use and I never had to use the “Lifetime Warranty“. They were designed and built to last and this is how EXAIR designs and manufactures their Intelligent Compressed Air Tooling.

EXAIR Design and Engineering team designs our items with performance and repeat manufacture ability in mind. EXAIR products have no moving parts so very little maintenance is required. As long as a source of clean dry compressed air is supplied to the product and following our recommended Installation instructions not much can go wrong,

EXAIR has a “5 Year Built to Last” Warranty against defects in workmanship and materials on all compressed air products. This warranty applies under conditions of normal use, but does not apply to defects that result from intentional damage, negligence, unreasonable use, wear or exposure. An example of a non warranty situation would be using an abrasive material such as sand with our Aluminum Line Vacs. The abrasive nature of the sand will wear the aluminum Line Vac out well before the 5 years. Our application engineers will discuss your application and recommend products that fit your project and our 5 Year Built to Last Warranty.

EXAIR also has a 30-Day Guarantee that allows you to make a purchase and run trials to see the effectiveness of our product and how they meet your expectations. If the item provides desired results then great we are both happy but if you do not see the desired results then you have 30 Days from purchase to return the product. An Application Engineer can discuss your findings and issue a “Return Authorization” if needed. You will receive a full credit without any restocking fees.

EXAIR has confidence in our products to last and perform standing behind our products. Our confidence is why we offer both 5 Year Built to Last Warranty and the 30-Day Unconditional Guarantee. If you have any questions as to what EXAIR product will provide the best result for your application, please contact one of our qualified Application Engineers, so we can review this with you and make the best recommendation for your project(s).

EXAIR has Intelligent Compressed Air® Tooling

I used to work for a plastic injection molding facility that also had several different types of secondary added value processes. We used compressed air in our paint rooms, assembly areas, molding room and other various processes. I don’t recall what our compressed air usage was as we had 7 total manufacturing facilities in 5 different states. I tracked our electric bills, phone bills, water bills and all of our vending billing but, I never took the time to realize the importance and cost of compressed air.

I was successful in cost reduction activity in all those ares and so proud of the accomplishments but not once did I take the time to realize what I could save with our compressed air systems and the tooling we used with compressed air. The illustration below shows what can be saved when looking at just one air nozzle:

Compressed Air Savings

This is just one air nozzle. We used about 100 Air Nozzles, 20 paint nozzles, 50 Line Vacs and other various compressed air products. If I was able to calculate savings for all the products we used and focused on fixing air leaks in the system I would have been a real hero. Well guess what? EXAIR can help you calculate and determine the best products to help you generate these savings. We can even help you calculate your savings.

The other benefits included with EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air® products will be the noticeable noise reduction and compliance with OSHA Standards 29 CFR-1910.95(a) Maximum Allowable Noise Exposure and 29 CFR-1910.242(b) Harmful Dead End Pressure. EXAIR meets or exceeds these OSHA Standards providing you with a peace of mind for conformance.

EXAIR has a great catalog showing our products, capabilities and performance information. Our website www.EXAIR.com offers catalog information, prices, performance, drawings, videos, blogs, air savings calculator and much more information. If you are unable to find what you need you can conveniently call one of our Application Engineers for assistance.

Advantages of Adjustable Air Amplifiers

Model 6034 – 4″ Stainless Steel Adjustable Air Amplifier

EXAIR’s Air Amplifiers can be found in a many different applications around the world. The EXAIR Amplifiers solve problems as simple as blowing debris off parts to exhausting fumes. The Air Amplifier comes in two different styles either the Super Air Amplifier or the Adjustable Air Amplifier. Super Air Amplifiers come in a stock Aluminum Body with a diameter that ranges from ¾” to 8”. The Adjustable Air Amplifier comes in either type 303 Stainless Steel or Aluminum and are Sized from ¾” to 4”.

The main difference between the Super Air Amplifier and the Adjustable Air Amplifier is the fact the Super Air Amplifier has a shim inside of it that sets the gap for the air flow. Force and flow for Adjustable Air Amplifier is changed by Turing the exhaust end (knurled ring) to open or close the continuous air gap. When the desired performance has been found then the knurled ring can be tightened to lock the flow. This is great for changing environments where needs regulated to current environment.

I recently answered a phone call that a customer wanted to dry and cool production machined castings. The items were being conveyed on a wire screen mesh through a wash and this customer need more cooling and drying after the wash. This customer purchased a series of adjustable Air Amplifiers and placed them inside the conveyor successfully blowing off excess liquid and cooling the part to an acceptable level. The final results generated an improved cycle time with improved efficiency in production rates and another satisfied customer.

The Air Amplifiers and Adjustable Air Amplifiers can be used to cool, dry, clean, ventilate, exhaust and many other uses. EXAIR has many uses worldwide where our Air Amplifiers are being used. Please let us know about your application and how we can help you. Our Application Engineers can be reached by calling 800.903.9247 and by visiting http://www.EXAIR.com.

Construction Site Compressed Air Use

On our website we have an amazing tool we refer to as the Application Database! This is a library of applications that are sorted by industry and application! All you have to do is create a account on EXAIR.com and BAM you have access!

Now, lets look at a few applications in the Construction sector!

The first customer used our line of Air operated Conveyors!

Customer is installing border fence for the US Department of Homeland Security. They cannot use a posthole digger because they are in sand and the hole collapses. So they hammer drill the post in. Then they need to remove the sand from the interior of the pipe, so they can fill it with concrete. This is to prevent intruders from sawing off the post. The Model 150200 2″ (51mm) Heavy Duty Line Vac easily removed the sand and small rocks. Being made of hardened alloy steel, it held up to the abrasion of the sand and rock.

Removing Sand From a Post hole

Super Air knives are used in the manufacture of one of the most used, wood material in home construction!

A company manufactures Oriented Strand Board (OSB). They were having a housekeeping issue at various places within their OSB press. They were only able to run 10-15 minutes at a time before they would have to clear material from the press to keep from damaging the finish on the product yet to be pressed. They purchased a Super Air Knife to blow off the press area to keep debris from piling up and affecting the finish.

Maintaining A Consistent Appearance On Oriented Strand Board

These are just a few of many applications we hear and work with every day! While we have a good amount of applications on the site, we have even more in our heads. So if you don’t see anything on the site that matches what you are looking for, give us a call. We have a team of application engineers ready to discuss your application specifically and determine how our products can best help you be more efficient in your processes!
