From the main page, hover the mouse pointer over ‘KNOWLEDGE BASE‘ and the pop-up menu will appear as seen below. Select ‘APPLICATIONS’
On the left hand side of the screen you will see a gray navigation pane that shows Application with a list underneath. Scroll down the main page and you will see a second heading in the navigation pane labeled “Industry”. You can select your industry from the list provided. For today’s example we will select Aerospace.
Once the industry is selected there will be a new list of applications that are displayed in the center of the page. Simply select the application you would like more information on and the details will display.
Below, we showcase the application from a machine manufacturer for the Aerospace industry. This customer manufactured the production equipment of a flexible, porous material that is continuously passed through a wash tank prior to cutting to length. They were interested in speeding the drying process of this strand, and considered blowing hot air onto it. It was not feasible to install an electrically powered hot air blower or gun. They needed an air flow of approximately 15 SCFM at 200°F, and had 70 psig air supply with a large volume available. They utilized a Vortex Tube installed over the strand after it exited the dip tank. The Vortex Tube was oriented with the hot air exhaust blowing on to the strand to dry the strand. The customer stated that they not only met their expectations but exceeded the original hopes and were able to dry the product quicker and safer than expected.
This is just one of many applications that are showcased in the Application Database for the Aerospace industry. Those are just a small sampling of the thousands of applications that can be researched through the database. If you would like to share your application to the database, feel free to contact an Application Engineer.

Upon moving to our new house, quite a distance from our old location, my wife and I were looking for a new “go to” restaurant that would be close to our new digs.
I did a Google search and found a place that was only a couple miles away and had good reviews. My wife and I went in and it was a quaint little place. The food was good, as expected, but the service was not.
We discussed the lackluster service and decided to go again about a week later hoping it was an isolated incident. On this visit we had a different server (which turned out to be the owner). Long story short, the service was again not good. It took a long time to place our order and receive our food.
I was ready to just write them off but my wife has a very soft and forgiving heart. So against my vote we go a third time. Which turned out to be a carbon copy of the 1st visit. With one great exception, we left after we had been there 25 minutes and our order was not taken. So, now we drive farther to our “old standby” because the service makes the difference to us.

My son was complaining about his unusually high water bill. I advised him to look for leaks around the house. Checking for leaks and how to check for them is something that I have been assisting customers with for the last 19 years. Water, compressed air, no difference. A leak is a leak. It did not take me long to find his problem. He had left the water on to a garden hose. Lying in the hot sun, it developed a bulge in the hose that eventually burst.
With compressed air systems, when pressure loss becomes a problem, the first thing auditors look for are leaks. EXAIR has a handheld ultrasonic leak detector that can find leaks that you may not be able to hear. This instrument detects inaudible sounds emitted from the smallest of leaks.
Having found and fixed all the leaks, the job is not done. Over time, inefficient compressed air devices are added to the system. Air blow off probably is the leading offender and open copper pipe is usually the culprit.
Open pipe not only wastes compress air but it is not compliant to the OSHA dead ended pressure and can also violate sound level exposure requirements. The solution is to install EXAIR engineered nozzles. They can cut operating costs since they use only a fraction of the compressed air of typical blow-offs and comply with the OSHA sound and dead ended pressure directives.
EXAIR has a full range of sizes of engineered air nozzles ranging from the size as small as a grain of rice up to 1 1/4″ NPT. With so many selections you may not know which one to decide on and that is where our application engineers come in. Feel welcomed to give them a call at 1-800-903-9247. They truly would appreciate the opportunity to assist you.
