Just introduced into the market is EXAIR‘s New TurboBlast Safety Air Gun. Using EXAIR’s largest Super Air Nozzles, the TurboBlast Safety Air Gun delivers the most powerful force of any gun with a comfortable easy-to-use handle.

Models are available with an adjustable gate valve that allows for easy adjustments to the air consumption and force with a simple turn of the adjustment valve. All models are available with or without the gate valve and with 1′ (included on base models), 3′, or 6′ extensions. They also come with an installed nozzle guard to protect the nozzle fins from damage should the gun ever be dropped by operators.

Accessorize Your Safety Air Gun – More Choices from EXAIR

Over the years you may have read blog posts regarding the EXAIR Safety Air Guns.  You can find the blogs herehere and here. Today, I want to review a few available options for the Safety Air Guns.

Protect Workers From Flying Debris! – Chip Shields are durable polycarbonate shields that protect the operator from flying debris often seen when blowing off chips from machined parts. They are also useful to prevent coolant from splashing back, creating a mess during drying processes.

The Chip Shields are available for EXAIR’s VariBlastSoft Grip, and Heavy Duty Safety Air Guns. The Chip Shield can be used on Safety Air Guns with or without an aluminum extension. They may be purchased as part of a new air gun system, or retrofitted as a Chip Shield Kit.  Consult an Application Engineer for selection assistance.

If you have a blow-off process where the air is to be directed at a distance away from the operator, or into a hard to reach location an extension is the solution. Available in lengths from 6″ (152mm) to 72″ (1829mm), with sizes as shown below, a length to meet most any requirement can be found. To add an extension to an air gun, simply add -xx to the current part number.

EXAIR Soft Grip Safety Air Gun

EXAIR Safety Air Guns use engineered air nozzles for high performance. Inexpensive air guns are sold through many catalogs and industrial supply companies. Most have triggers or other parts that break quickly. Their performance is similar to open pipe, where they simply blow a lot of compressed air. In addition to high air consumption, many produce noise levels that violate OSHA requirements. Some even generate dangerous dead end pressures that can result in serious or fatal injuries if blocked.

EXAIR Model 1210 Soft Grip Safety Air Gun

EXAIR’s Soft Grip Safety Air Gun has a durable cast aluminum body that is best suited for rugged industrial use. The ergonomic design has a larger trigger for easy operation and a convenient hanger hook for easy storage. Chip Shields for worker safety are available. Extension pipes and stay set hoses for hard to reach areas are also available.

The inefficient use of compressed air for blow-off applications may create problems due to noise level. High noise levels are a common problem for many plants. Compressed air noise often exceeds OSHA noise level exposure requirements, resulting in close proximity.

Air can also be dangerous when the outlet pressure of a hole, hose or copper tube is higher than 30 PSOG (2 BAR). In the event the opening is blocked by a hand or other body part, air may enter the bloodstream through the skin, resulting i a serious injury.

EXAIR Safety Air Guns use our engineered air nozzles which meet or exceed OSHA Standard 29 CFR – 1910.95 (a) Maximum Allowable Noise Exposure and also OSHA Standard 29CFR 1910.242 (b) Harmful Dead End Pressure.

If you need help choosing the right Safety Air Gun and Engineer Air Nozzle please contact any of our qualified Application Engineers.

Product Spotlight: Soft Grip Super Air Scraper

Have you ever dipped your hand into a warm bath of paraffin wax? You can feel your hand relaxing. When you pull it out and begin to peel the wax away you can already tell how soft and refreshed your hand feels. And then someone gives you a hand massage while you sit there in complete bliss, your hand completely relaxed and rejuvenated. Well, this is not at all how the Soft Grip Super Air Scraper makes your hands feel. But the Soft Grip handle is very comfortable and does feel better than any other option on the market.

The Soft Grip handle is ideal for continuous use without causing fatigue. The design keeps your hand in a comfortable position and the large trigger allows an easy pull with one finger or all of them. This is built to endure the toughest industrial environments, and it even comes with a convenient hangar hook for easy storage.

Scrape off, and blow away, stubborn debris with the Model 1244-48 Soft Grip Super Air Scraper.

Once we get past the comfortable handle, we move down to the purpose. The Air Scraper portion will assist in removing some of the toughest debris found in industrial facilities. The patented design uses the scraping blade along with powerful compressed air flow. This is perfect for any of those sticky substances like caulk, sealants, gaskets, adhesives, tape, paint stickers, labels, grease, lubricants, and so much more. This will help you keep your machining tables, and assembly stations clean and functional.

The scraper is made of corrosion resistant steel and is attached to a 2″ Super Air Nozzle. It is very formidable to provide the strength necessary for the toughest scenarios. This comes with a 3/4″ extension for those close up needs, but we offer extensions for this from 6″ to 72″ long so that you can reach table tops, walls, inside machines, and floors.

Please reach out to us at anytime with questions about the Soft Grip Super Air Scraper, or any of our other amazing products.
