Get your EXAIR Catalog

I consider myself a bit Old Fashion when it comes to product catalogs! (As I sit here and look at my 3,968 page McMaster-Carr Catalog!) There’s something nice about having everything you need right in front of you. Yes I know everything is on our website also, and its a pretty slick website if I do say so myself! Check out this blog about our new and improved website! Website Blog But there is something about a paper catalog you can flip thru and see all the options!

EXAIR’s Catalog 33 is 224 pages, and covers all 16 product lines from Air Knives to Cabinet Cooler systems, to industrial vacuums. All of our cataloged products are in stock and ready to ship! Not only will you be able to find part numbers, Dimensions, Product specifications and performance. You will also find application photos to help you use the products the best way!

To get your hands on one you can either shoot a email to techelp@exair.com, or jump over to our website and provide your information and one will be shipped out! Order A Catalog Here

CE Compliance

These words elicit multiple responses and emotions in individuals depending on the context in which they are used, and the background of the person hearing or saying the words. In this day and age, no one likes to be told what to do, to conform to comply. If you aren’t different you are the weird one, right??? Following the rules is for the weak??? Social media has made it easy for keyboard warriors to push back and fight the standards, the rules and the laws. Some of this has led to great change, and some has led to great disaster. Thankfully, most of us understand the need for compliance in marketable goods and services. Standards, policies, regulations, compliance, etc… These things lead to repeatable quality products and services that businesses, and consumers depend on.

Have you ever wandered what the CE mark really means? Let’s dive in and find out. First off, CE is short for the French words Conformité Européenne or European conformity. It means that a manufacturer has taken the responsibility for compliance of a product meeting all European Health, Safety, performance, and Environmental requirements. This is a required (EU Legislation) certification for most products that are sold in the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE markings on a product assure that the product can be sold in any EU country, regardless of the country of origin. It has become an acceptable standard for much of the rest of the world as well, it just holds no weight other than in Europe.

At EXAIR we go to great lengths to lead the way in standards compliance. Each of our products are engineered with the best technical knowledge, and perform at peak efficiency. All of our compressed air products comply with OSHA’s Safety Requirements (29 CFR1910.242(b), and the EU General Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC, and they also meet the noise limitation requirements 29CFR-1910.95 (a), of the EU Machinery directive 2006/42/EC. Some EXAIR products display the CE mark where there are applicable directives. All sound level measurements are taken 3 feet from product. On top of all this, you will get the best customer service anywhere. Myself and the other application engineers are here to assist you in choosing the best product for your application.

If you have any questions or need assistance with any of EXAIR‘s products or our certifications please do not hesitate to reach out.

Understanding EXAIR Air Amplifiers and Air Pressure Amplifiers

Adjustable Air Amplifier

I take many calls regarding Air Amplifiers but sometimes I get calls that confuse EXAIR Air Amplifiers with air pressure amplifiers. EXAIR’s Air Amplifiers and air pressure amplifiers are fundamentally different and have different purposes.

First, EXAIR’s Super Air Amplifiers and Adjustable Air Amplifiers increase air volume, not pressure. Air pressure amplifiers increase air pressure from typical system pressure of 80-130PSIG up to 5000 PSIG. Air pressure amplifiers are an excellent solution for applications that require higher air or nitrogen pressure such as increasing force for clamps or presses and pressure testing processes. They are also known as air boosters.

Air Amplifiers use the Coanda Effect to generate high flow with low consumption.

EXAIR Air Amplifiers are a low cost way to move air, smoke, fumes and light materials. These Air Amplifiers use the Coanda effect to create a low pressure area which draws in surrounding air to efficiently deliver a high volume of air on to a target. Using a small amount of compressed air as their source, Air Amplifiers are among the most efficient products within EXAIR’s entire product line. EXAIR Air Amplifiers will create output flows up to 25 times their consumption rate and deliver it at a high velocity. The entrainment of outside air amplifies the total volume of air output which also increases force, cooling ability and circulation.

EXAIRs Air Amplifiers have no moving parts, assuring maintenance-free operation. Fine tuning flow, vacuum and velocity are easily controlled by regulating the pressure. For gross adjustment of air flow and vacuum an internal shim is used to increase or decrease the internal “air gap” that the compressed air flows through. Both vacuum and discharge ends of the Air Amplifier can be ducted, making them ideal for drawing fresh air from another location, or moving smoke and fumes away.

I hope this helps distinguish EXAIR Air Amplifiers versus air pressure amplifiers. If you have questions regarding EXAIR Intelligent Air Products please contact one of our Application Engineers as we are always ready to help.

What’s So Super About EXAIR’s Super Air Wipe?

When you’re blowing something off with compressed air, one of the first things you want to consider is the size, and shape, of the air flow that’s going to be needed to get the job done. If you’re blowing off individual small parts, we’ve got a variety of Super Air Nozzles that will do the job quietly and efficiently. If it’s a flat plate, sheet, or film, the laminar flow from a Super Air Knife is particularly conducive to creating a stripping/sweeping flow of air, ideal from blowing moisture or debris from flat surfaces.

Let’s say you need to blow off an object from all sides…like a length of hose, tube or pipe, or even an extruded shape. You could position an array of Air Nozzles, Air Knives, or Air Amplifiers around it (there ARE times when that makes sense, but that’s a subject for another day)…or, you could pass it through an Air Wipe.

EXAIR Air Wipe products come in a range of sizes – 3/8″ to 11″ – all of which have a split design, which unlatches easily to eliminate the hassle of having to thread the product through them. Air Wipes up to the 4″ size come with a hose assembly that connects the two halves, so you just need to run one air line to them. If you want to make gross adjustments to the flow & force generated, we offer additional shims, which are easily installed to put the Air Wipe into a whole new range of performance.

These also come in two types: Super, and Standard, Air Wipes. Size for size, performance & dimensions are identical. The difference is all about the materials of construction and temperature ratings. Which one we specify will largely come down to the nature of the environment in which they’ll be installed. In the absence of high heat, or corrosive elements in the environment, the Standard Air Wipe is my recommendation all day, every day. If you need something that’ll stand up to a bit more aggressive conditions, the Super Air Wipes are certainly worth a look.

Additionally, the Super Air Wipes can be fitted with emitter points for static elimination…we call those Super Ion Air Wipes, and they come in 2″ and 4″ sizes.

360° blow off AND fast, efficient static dissipation: EXAIR Super Ion Air Wipe.

EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air Products are the best choice for quiet, safe, and efficient use of your compressed air. If you’ve got a blow off application you’d like to discuss, give me a call.
