This Is A Hold Up

To clarify, right off the bat:

  1. Nobody is getting robbed here.
  2. Nothing is being delayed, especially a shipment from EXAIR. If it’s in the catalog, it ships on time, 99.97% of the time, for 17 years & running. This has nothing to do with this blog; I just never get tired of bragging about that.

Today I wanted to write about installing EXAIR products, but hey, it’s Friday, so I thought I’d start with something that would get your attention. If you’re still reading, I guess it worked.

We talk to users…and potential users…all the time about how to install an Air Knife, Air Nozzle, Vortex Tube, etc. And the answer is…it depends. But, it’s almost always quick and easy.

Consider the EXAIR Super Air Knife. There are a few ways to hold one in place:
*There are 1/4″-20 tapped holes, every 2″ along the bottom. These can be used to bolt it to just about anything you want to bolt it to.
*The 1/4″-20 cap screws can also be replaced with fasteners of sufficient length to allow use of a bracket. In fact, this is what we use for…
*The Universal Air Knife Mounting System – it’s a quick and convenient way to support an Air Knife. It’s especially beneficial to precisely position the Super Air Knife for optimum performance.
*Last but not least, Super Air Knives 24″ and longer need to be plumbed to both ends for proper performance. If you hard pipe it in, it’ll be as well supported as the piping.

EXAIR Super Air Knives are easy to install, no matter what the length, or application.

Then there’s our Super Air Nozzles:
*With standard, common NPT threads, these are easy to install anywhere you have an existing air line. You can get NPT adapters for darn near any threaded connection, off the shelf, from a friendly local air compressor or hydraulic/pneumatics shop.
*We’ve got Stay Set Hoses in lengths from 6″ to 36″ – these let you reposition the Air Nozzle at will. It’ll “stay set” until you bend it again.
*Our Swivel Fittings can be used with any of our Super Air Nozzles, as well as our Air Amplifiers, for sturdy, yet easily repositionable, installation.

EXAIR Swivel Fittings or Stay Set Hoses - no better way to optimize your air flow than aiming it where it needs to be!

We’re even committed to making our air preparation accessories easy to install…our Automatic Drain Filter Separators, Oil Removal Filters, and Pressure Regulators (up to 1/2 NPT) can be coupled via a modular block assembly that eliminates a threaded connection between them, and is ideal for close quarters.

Just My Size

So, I was spending some daddy/son time with my 5 year old this past weekend, (5 and a HALF if you ask him), when he asked me about my new job and what kind of “stuff” I helped our customers with. So we got on our tablet and I showed him our website, EXAIR.com. I decided to start off with our Super Air Nozzles because I thought he might be able to relate a little after seeing me use my portable compressor to blow off my workbench, sawdust, etc. in our garage.

As we scrolled through the section we came upon our Atto Super Air Nozzles. Well, that was the ONE for him! He was so excited that we had nozzles that were, per his words, “just my size” and he wanted to know when I was going to bring him one home.

Of course, as with most children, I could see his wheels turning as he was trying to come up with ways that he could use these to push his cars around or blow the dirt out of his Power Wheels dune buggy or maybe just blow some air at our dog, you know, just for fun. (By no means would I condone this behavior.)

Since we offer the Atto Super Air Nozzle in both 316SS and PEEK material, I asked him which one he thought he would want…… BIG decision for a 5 year old! (Well, 5 and a HALF). Of course the answer was, “just get me both daddy because they are little, just my size”.

1108SS

Take a look at our extensive Super Air Nozzle selection.  The fact is that we fit any “size” from 4x.05 metric to 1-1/4″ NPT and almost every size in between, as well as multiple material options.   No matter what your applications size, or environment, chances are we will have a Super Air Nozzle that will fit it, if not then we have twelve other product lines that might just fit the need.  Feel free to check the website, EXAIR.com, and check out our Super Air Nozzles. I can guarantee there will be something to fit your application, or “just your size”, if not we’ll take it back under our 30 day guarantee.
