Application Database: Agriculture.

EXAIR uses many different methods to connect with our customers.  We have our website, social media, blogs, publications etc.  We like to share solutions for some of the most common pneumatic problems in the industry.  EXAIR generated a large collection of application information where EXAIR products have solved problems and improved processes, and we placed them in a database.  We organized them by Application and by Industry.  In this blog, I will show you how to use our application database; specifically for agriculture.

The agricultural industry is an essential business for people around the world.  So, it is very important to reduce costs and improve processes.  EXAIR has engineered products that can help in these areas.  This can include spraying fungicide, conveying products, blowing compressed air, and monitoring pneumatic systems.  Compressed Air Systems are considered to be a fourth utility within industries because they use a large amount of energy.  Whether an air compressor uses electricity or fuel for portable units, it is important to use this system as efficiently as possible.  EXAIR has a library of different processes in which we already have improved in these areas safely and efficiently.  If you are part of the Agricultural industry, it can be beneficial for you to find the areas that we already improved.  It is a “been there, done that” solution that you can take an advantage of using. 

Here is how you can find this library.  First, you will have to sign into the EXAIR website.  Click HERE to log in.  Once you fill in the proper information, you can then retrieve a great number of resources about EXAIR products that we manufacture.   The Application database is located under the Resources drop-down tab (Reference photo below) and at Applications.

At the Application Search Library, we have over one thousand applications that we reference.  In the left selection pane, we organized them in alphabetical order under two categories, Application and Industry.

Scroll down in the Industry selection pane until you come to the sub-category: Agriculture.  If you do not find it, you can select the Expand button to open up more industries.  We have other applications as well that may relate to your specific process if you scroll up and down the list, like Food and Beverage as examples. 

Why is this important?  If you are a plant manager or owner, the value of the Application Database can help your current processes with pre-qualified results.  Within the Agriculture industry, simple solutions can be found to address those “nagging” issues that you see every day.  For crisis situations and shutdowns, EXAIR categorized these applications in a way to reference quickly and easily.  And since EXAIR has a high volume of stocked items, we can get the parts to you very fast so you can quickly be on your way to a solution.

In today’s market, companies are always looking for ways to cut cost, increase productivity, and improve safety.  EXAIR can offer engineered products to do exactly that.  With the “been there and done that” solutions already described in the Application Database; you can have confidence in finding a way in solving pneumatic issues.  If you do not sign up at http://www.EXAIR.com and take advantage of these offerings, you will be missing out on a great tool to optimize your compressed air system.  And if you did not find a solution inside our Application database, an Application Engineer at EXAIR is available.

Application Database : Success Stories in Foundries

EXAIR products are used in countless applications across all facets of industry, we have been working to compile some in a easy to read Application Database on EXAIR.COM!

Today I wanted to cover a few application successes from within Foundries.

The first example is from a company who manufactures flux for aluminum processing. They were experiencing conveyor belt jam ups because not all the material would fall off at the tail end of the belt. What adhered to the belt would be carried over on the return, fell off due to gravity and vibration, and was causing build up underneath and jamming the belt. The Model 110036 36″ (914mm) Super Air Knife was installed on the end of the conveyor blowing off any tramp material as the belt came around the head pulley. This consolidated the debris to one area where they could easily reach it for removal. This all but eliminated maintenance and downtime.

Super Air Knife installed

A manufacturer of aluminum rods was having problems with removing drawing die lubricant from aluminum bar being cut to length. The lubricant was causing the bar to slip in the grippers, causing the bars to be cut short. Passing the bar through a Model 2402 2″ (51mm) Super Air Wipe effectively removed the lubricant, and eliminated grip slippage.

Super Air Wipe

The last customer operates an aluminum foundry. A small actuating cylinder’s seals were failing frequently, due to the heat from a nearby furnace. Using a Model 3230 Medium Vortex Tube, they are able to direct a flow of cold air onto the cylinder, keeping the elastomer seals cool, which greatly extends their life.

Compressed Air Use in the Medical Industry

EXAIR uses many different methods to connect with our customers.  We have our website, social media, blogs, publications etc. We like to share solutions for some of the most common pneumatic problems in industry.  EXAIR generates a large collection of application information where EXAIR products have already solved problems and improved processes. We organized them by Application and by Industry.  In this blog, I will show you how to use our Application database; specifically, for the Medical Industry.

Compressed Air Systems are considered to be a fourth utility within industries because they use a large amount of energy.  Whether an air compressor that uses fuel for portable units or that uses electricity, it is important to use this system as efficiently as possible.  This would also apply to the Automotive industry.  EXAIR has a library of different processes in which we already improved these areas safely and efficiently.  If you are part of the Automotive industry, it could benefit you to take a peek at the areas that we already improved, established OSHA safety, and saved money.
