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 share an application within the Aerospace industry and how you can find it as well.
The aerospace industry needed help cleaning the wings on an airplane after washing. The use of rags and squeegees was time-consuming and could scratch the surface of the wing. They were looking for a non-contact way to clean the surface quickly and efficiently. They contacted EXAIR, as we are the leaders in this industry. To reach across the surface, I recommended the model 110272PKI 72” Aluminum Super Air Knife Kit with a Plumbing Kit installed. The plumbing kit makes it easy to properly install compressed air to this long air knife. The kit adds a filter, regulator, and a shim set to help control the force of the Super Air Knife to optimize blow-off. This company was able to mount this to a rodless cylinder to move the Super Air Knife along the entire length of the wing. Drying and cleaning the surface without touching the exterior, making it a great way to get the wings to the next step in the process.

We have other applications as well that may relate to your specific process if you scroll up and down the list, like Automotive and Aviation, 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.
