I recently had a customer call in that was trying to boost an exhaust on a hot operation that he had in his facility. We discussed what kind of fumes he was trying to evacuate and it appeared at face value that a High Temp Air Amplifier would be the perfect solution for his application.
Then the words that strike fear into some manufacturers came out. The customer asks, do you have any way to put a 4 bolt flange onto the unit so I can mount it straight into my piping system? My response, “All I need are the dimensions of the flange you need and we will see what is possible.” After a few further questions and verification, we had a drawing with dimensions of a Flanged High Temp Air Amplifier. We sent the drawing to the customer for approval, and once approved, we began to manufacture the custom product and provided it to the customer. This unit will allow the customer to easily boost the exhaust on his operation and will bolt straight into his piping so there are no worries on his end about exhaust gas escaping. His 500°F air temperature of the gases are of no concern to this special as it carries with it the high temperature rating of 700°F. The pictures below show the Special – Flanged High Temp Air Amplifier.
If you think there is no way we can find a product that will fit your compressed air application, or adapt a product to fit then give us a call, you might just be surprised at what we can offer in a quick turn around.
Last week, Plant Engineering presented EXAIR’s Long Super Air Knives the Bronze award for Product of the Year in the compressed air category. In 2014, EXAIR introduced one piece, seamless Long Super Air Knives up to 108″ in length. No other company in the world can provide a one piece compressed air operated air knife over 54″ long. This one piece design allows for minimal footprint for long units, and an unparalleled uniform sheet of laminar air flow. These long Super Air Knives conserve compressed air over drilled pipes or a manifold of air nozzles. Their compact design excels at large web drying and cleaning operations i.e. paper, rolled steel, aluminum foils, or plastic sheets. Air knives also excel at cooling extrusions, molds, heated rollers, or components. The air knives entrain ambient air at 40:1 ratio (40 parts ambient to 1 part compressed air) which means it moves a tremendous volume of air and delivers it to your target. The Super Air Knives provide all of these benefits quietly and efficiently. The air knife creates only 69 dBA of noise at 80 PSIG of pressure and it would be a great addition in areas where anyone is trying to limit harmful noise exposure to personnel.
These air knives continue EXAIR’s history of pushing the envelope in air knife technology. In 2010, EXAIR introduced the first polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) air knife to the market. The PVDF Super Air Knives provide resistance to UV light, inorganic chemicals, solvents, ozone, weather, fungi, chlorinated hydrocarbons, highly corrosive acids, weak bases and salts while maintaining a quiet operation (69 dBA). This material change opened EXAIR to a variety of environments that cannot be served by blowers, aluminum, or stainless steel air knives.
