EXAIR’s New Catalog 33 with New Products and Added Information

EXAIR Corporation has been manufacturing intelligent compressed air® products since 1983.  If your company uses pneumatic systems, EXAIR has solutions to save you money in compressed air usage, improve your safety environment, and increase productivity.  You can review these products and our new products in Catalog33, or you can speak with an Application Engineer.  We are looking forward to working with you. 

For those of you that have been patiently waiting for the new catalog, we have great news! Catalog 33 is now in house. You can find it in our website as pdf files at this link, Catalog33.   We also have hard copies that are now available.   If you are like me and enjoy something to hold and read, you can fill out this form, Catalog Request.  Since Catalog32, we have released quite a few new products that are now included in Catalog33.  Here they are:

The EasySwitch® Wet/Dry Vacuum (page 167 – 168 in catalog) – In our Industrial Housekeeping Products, we made an industrial vacuum to pick up both liquid and solid materials.  The patent-pending EasySwitch vacuum simplifies the filter change process when switching from a dry material application to liquid, and vice versa.  Designed to handle the toughest of industrial cleanup jobs, the EasySwitch is available with either a standard or HEPA certified filter. It easily converts from liquid/dry mode by releasing the single latch and removing the filter element. For applications where dedicated wet and dry vacuum are needed, the EasySwitch is the ideal solution; one vacuum for wet, dry, light, and heavy applications.

Liquid Atomizing Spray Nozzles (FullStream/HollowStream) (page 98 – 102 in catalog) – EXAIR’s FullStream & HollowStream Spray Nozzles require no compressed air to operate. They produce droplets by spinning the liquid and breaking its surface tension through a precision orifice or by impacting the liquid onto a surface of the nozzle. These nozzles generate higher liquid flowrates and produce a coarser pattern than the Air Atomizing Spray Nozzles.  With the higher liquid flowrates, they are ideal for quenching, cooling, washing, rinsing, sanitizing, and many other applications. 

Intellistat® Ion Air Gun™ (page 138 – 139 in catalog) – The Intellistat Ion Air Gun is a lightweight solution for static elimination operations. This intelligent product utilizes balanced ionized compressed air to neutralize static and remove particulates during clean processes, test procedures, and sensitive assembly work.  The Intelistat Ion Air Gun comes equipped with a short-throw effortless trigger and the lightweight and ergonomic frame allows extended periods of use without experiencing operator fatigue.  The ionizing gun comes complete with a 6mm air connection and tubing, red and green LED lights for feedback, a removable hook for easy storage, and a low-voltage 24 VDC power supply.  The Gen4 Static Eliminators are great tools for industrial applications, and the Intellistat Ion Air Gun is ideal for laboratories, electronics, lenses, medical, pharmaceutical, etc. type of areas. 

VariBlast® Precision Safety Air Gun (page 105 in catalog) – The VariBlast Precision Safety Air Guns are very lightweight and deliver a focused blast of air.  This product line completes our Safety Air Guns from precision small blowing to the Super Blast.  Designed with the same style of variable force trigger as the VariBlast Compact Safety Air Guns, it’s easy to adjust the flow/force from the gun simply through the trigger.  New to this style of gun is the ability to install different length extensions, chip shields, and small Safety Air Nozzles. 

Catalog 33 also added additional pages containing best practices for using compressed air products.

The EasySwitch™ Wet-Dry Vac won the Silver Award!

EXAIR has been manufacturing Intelligent Compressed Air Products since 1983.  In that time, we have engineered many new products for new and existing markets with better efficiency, versatility, and effectiveness.  To gauge how a new product is received by your peers, we like to send them to different committees for evaluations.  Last year, we sent our EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac to Plant Engineering to compete against other new products in the manufacturing and non-manufacturing industries.  In the Maintenance Tools and Equipment category, the EXAIR EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac won the Silver Award. 

How was EXAIR able to achieve such a prestigious award?  Well, let me tell you how our newest Industrial Housekeeping Product was able to receive this award.  I will discuss the features and benefits, so you can decide for yourself.

We have joined our wet vacuum with our dry vacuum to make the EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac System.  This new addition to our Industrial Housekeeping Products allows your customers to replace their electric wet-dry vacuums that fail prematurely, have potential safety issues, and are very loud.  You can watch a video of the operation HERE.

A wet-dry vacuum is a contained system that can vacuum up liquid or dirt.  The specific design that separates the liquid application from the dry application is a filter element.  The filter will stop the dirt and debris from re-entering the surrounding air during vacuuming.  The EXAIR EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac uses this same function; but we offer two different types of filters; a standard filter and a HEPA filter.  The standard filter is a 3-micron pleated element with a large surface area for long life.  The HEPA filter is a 0.3-micron pleated element for finer filtration.  But what is unique about our design is the patent-pending lid to easily remove or replace the filter elements.  Unlike our competitors, you will have to remove the lid and use a tool to either remove or install the filter.  This is time consuming and a headache.  Our lid design makes an easy transition to go from liquid to dry materials and vice versa.   The EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac is designed to fit on a common 55 gallon open-top drum.  They are ideal for any applications that is wet, dry, light or heavy. 

Like with our other Industrial Housekeeping Products, the EasySwitch does not have any motors to wear or electricity to run which makes it safe for liquid applications.  It only needs filtered compressed air.  They are maintenance free, and the sound level is quiet, only 79 dBA.  The applications include coolant, chips, floor cleanup, drains, shavings, sawdust, absorbents, and mold/allergen removal.  For liquid applications, it has a spill free – auto safety shutoff.  This industrial all-purpose pneumatic vacuum can move 36 GPM (136 LPM) of water, 68 Lbs./min (31 Kg/min) of plastic media, and 54 lbs./min (24 Kg/min) of steel shot at 80 PSIG (5.5 bar).  The specifications at 80 PSIG (5.5 bar) for the EasySwitch is that it will only use 53 SCFM (1,500 SLPM) of compressed air to generate -168” H2O (-314 mmHg) of vacuum and 90 CFM (2,548 LPM) of vacuum flow. 

EXAIR offers three types of systems with the standard filter or the HEPA filter.  We have the basic system, the Deluxe system, and the Premium system.  The basic system will come with the selected filter with a prefilter, 10-foot (3m) vacuum hose, 20-foot (6.1m) compressed air hose, plastic tools, shutoff valve and gauge.  The Deluxe system will include the items in the basic system with an upgraded antistatic vacuum hose, heavy-duty tools, a spill recovery kit, a tool holder, and a drum dolly.  The Premium system will include the items in the Deluxe system plus a 55 Gallon drum.  A quick guide is below. 

Model number selection guide

Not all industrial vacuums are the same.  Electric wet/dry vacuums fail prematurely, generate loud noises, and are cumbersome for filter change-outs.  This is why the EXAIR EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac was awarded the Silver Award by Plant Engineering; longevity, quietness, and ease-of use.  If you are within the U.S. or Canada, we do offer a 30-day unconditional guarantee to try them out.   You will not be disappointed.  If you would like to discuss in more detail, an Application Engineer at EXAIR is here help.

Industrial Housekeeping Promo: Free Vac-U-Gun

Are you in need of a new vacuum system or upgrade your new old system? Well now’s the time to do it! Starting March 1st, 2021 and running through May 31st, 2021, we are offering a free Vac-U-Gun system with any order of one of our Industrial Housekeeping Vacuum Systems. Our Vac-U-Gun system is a versatile tool that can help you clean up surfaces and transfer the material from point A to point B. The Vac-U-Gun can also be used as a powerful blow gun simply by unscrewing the generator and flipping it around. Best of all these units have no moving parts meaning they will run almost indefinitely and are maintenance free.

Vac-U-Gun System

Our industrial housekeeping products are designed to either handle dry solids or liquid.

If you need to handle solid material our Chip Vac system is the perfect choice. The system can handle both dry and damp material and transfer it into one of our standard open top steel drum (or use one of your own drums). If you are working with a heavier or abrasive material then look no further then the Heavy Duty Dry Vac which provides superior performance and abrasion resistance for use with materials as garnet, ground glass, blasting and tumbling media.

If liquids are what you need the Reversible Drum Vac system which can pump 55 gals in 90 secs is an good choice. The Reversible Drum Vac also comes in a High Lift version which can be used to pump liquids that have a much thicker viscosity and move liquids up to 15’ deep. When it comes filtering out solids from your liquid we also have the High Lift Chip Trapper and the Chip Trapper system. The Chip Trapper systems allow you to filter out solids suspended in the liquid; this is perfect for filtering out chips from your coolant tanks for machining.

If you need to clean up both liquids and solids, choose our new EasySwitch Wet-Dry Vac system. The EasySwitch allows you to easily switch the unit from being able to vacuum up solids to being able to suck up liquids (hence the name). All you have to do is remove the HEPA filter from the latch on the lid. There are no tools involved, no springs or cumbersome closures. Switch from liquids to dry materials in less than 15 seconds.
