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.

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!

Communication Is Key

Effective communication is a key interpersonal skill and learning how each of us can improve our communication is beneficial to all. Communication is a two way process, so improving communication involves both how we deliver and listen to the message. To best service our customers, EXAIR has many ways to share and receive information.

There are the standard methods, of course, that have been around for years.  Phone and fax are still very useful, and everyone has noticed that fax is slowly becoming less utilized. As dreaded as it may be, email is certainly a valuable way to communicate, especially as it allows ‘attachments’ such as photos, which as the saying goes, are definitely worth a thousand words. If video or 3D models are exchanged I am certain the number of words increases.

The newest technology for communication is via ‘chat’ which can be accessed from the EXAIR website. Here, you can chat with an Application Engineer and do something as simple as confirming a part number to something more involved like sizing a Cabinet Cooler System.

The US Postal System is still a valuable communication tool, as we send out the EXAIR Catalog (currently volume No. 30) and the EXAIR-Mail (Number 109/Fall 2016 issue just went out), and some Purchase Orders still are dropped off by the Postman.

Another method of communication is face to face.  We have what we call the ‘Demo Room’ here at the factory in Cincinnati, OH.  In this room, we have every type of our Intelligent Compressed Air Products, in just about every size offered, ready for demonstration and testing to your application.  We’ve had visitors from all over the world come in and share face to face their applications and collaborate with us and test out the EXAIR solution.

There is also the EXAIR website, where we provide a plethora of information regarding the EXAIR product lines, CAD and PDF librariesCase StudiesPresentations, and the Video Library just to name a few.  Also, here is where you can Request a Catalog, Sign up for E-News, and Check List Pricing.

Lastly, and since you are reading this you already are familiar with the EXAIR Blog – a great way for us to share with you our musings and thoughts, in a way that makes it a personal take on the EXAIR products and our interactions with our customers.

Effective communication is very important to us and what we do here every day.  Feel free to utilize one or more of the Contact Us tools to communicate with us and we’ll be in touch!
