EXAIR’s Soft Grip Safety Air Gun Provides Safety & Efficiency Benefits

The Soft Grip Safety Air Gun is in stock for immediate shipping and has a durable cast aluminum body that is suited for rugged industrial use.  The ergonomic design has a large trigger and a soft, comfortable grip for easy operation and keeps the hand in a comfortable position for extended periods of use. A convenient hook hanger allows for easy storage when not in use.  Aluminum Extensions (up to 72″ long) and Stay Set Hoses (up to 36″ long ) can be fitted, providing access to hard to reach places. Chip Shields are available for most models, protecting operators from flying debris, helping to meet an important part of OSHA’s requirements for the safe use of compressed air, OSHA Standard 1910.242(b).

The Soft Grip Safety Air Gun can be configured with over a dozen nozzle options, with air consumption as low as 2.5 SCFM @ 80 PSIG of supply pressure and up to 60 SCFM if needed.  Nozzle materials include Zinc Aluminum alloy, 316 Stainless Steel, and PEEK (a thermoplastic polymer.)

Use of an EXAIR Soft Grip Gun with an Engineered Air Nozzle will provide a safe and efficient use of compressed air, reduce energy costs, and eliminate harmful dead end pressures (again, helping to comply with the OSHA standard for safe use of compressed air.)

When outfitted with EXAIR’s engineered air nozzles, the Soft Grip Safety Air Gun is a powerful ally to reduce personnel noise exposure and protect them from noise induced hearing loss. This is another important safety feature complying with OSHA’s standard 29 CFR-1910.95(a).

The Soft Grip Safety Air Gun can be configured to meet applications from delicate blowoff of electronic circuit boards to large chip removal in metal cutting operations, and everything in between.

If you have questions regarding the Soft Grip Safety Air Gun, or would like to talk about any EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air® Product, feel free to contact EXAIR and myself or one of our Application Engineers can help you determine the best solution.

FREE Vac-U-Gun Offer!

A couple weeks ago I wrote a blog titled, Spring Cleaning All Around, outlining just a few of the many  features of our Industrial Housekeeping Products. All of these products are compressed air operated, have no moving parts and require no electricity, making them a safe and virtually maintenance free option for industrial clean up.

We are currently running a promotional offer, where if you purchase one of these products by May 31, 2015, we will include a FREE Vac-U-Gun, a $98 Value!!! (Use the promotional model number within the promo to receive the offer).

Vac-U-Gun Promo
Just click the photo for the promotional Model #

The Vac-u-Gun can be used as a blow gun, vacuum or for product transfer. Using only 13 SCFM @ 80 PSIG of compressed air, the unit produces a high output airflow on one end and creates a vacuum on the other end. In blow off mode, the unit provides 9 ounces of high velocity, forceful airflow. By changing the orientation of the nozzle insert, the unit can be converted into vacuum mode, producing -29.5″ H20 vacuum, use the bag attachment for general clean up. The output end can be connected to an 1-1/4″ smooth bore hose, allowing for the transferring of dry media. Again, there are no moving parts or electricity required to operate, so you get the convenience of 3 separate tools all in one single, safe hand held device!

Vac-u-Gun orientation
Simply change the nozzle insert orientation to quickly change between blowoff mode or vacuum mode.

Of course, if you need any assistance with selecting the right Industrial Housekeeping Product, you can always contact an application engineer.

Video Blog: Measuring Surface Temperature and Air Temperature Requires Different Tools

IR Temperature Guns are a great tool for measuring surface temperatures, but not the best solution for providing the air temperature data EXAIR needs to size a Cabinet Cooler system for your electronic cabinets. This brief video illustrates the differences between using an IR temp gun and a regular thermometer when gathering temperatures to determine Cabinet Cooler system specifications.

Make sure to print out the Cabinet Cooler Sizing Guide before you get started so you can easily fill in all the needed data.

Movember Is Awesome!

In case you don’t know, today is the first day of Movember.  This is a month that some men decide to start with a clean-shaven face and grow out the mustache until the end of November to help raise awareness for prostate/testicular cancer. I, sadly, I am not participating this year, mainly because I am afraid my one-year-old daughter wouldn’t know who I am without a beard and my three-year-old would most likely want me to grow it back…immediately.  I grew my beard a couple years ago to help celebrate Movember and I liked it enough to keep it. But here is a link to a couple of my past Movember shenanigans. To give you some idea on what Movember is about, check the video below.

So that is one way that the month of November is awesome.  Here at EXAIR we like to celebrate November as well.  That’s right, we have not only made this month better one way, but two.  How you may ask?  First, we have extended the Safety Air Gun promotion which offers a free Chip Shield with the purchase of select Safety Air Guns.   The picture below is a link to that promotion.

Chip Shield Promo

Second, today marks the first day of our Super Air Knife promotion.   When you purchase a Super Air Knife and use the promotion from the link below, you will receive a free Soft Grip Safety Air Gun.

Super Air Knife Promo

So not only is November raising awareness on men’s health, but EXAIR is giving you two more reasons to like this month, a FREE Chip Shield with Safety Air Gun purchase and/or a FREE Soft Grip Safety Air Gun when purchasing a Super Air Knife.  If you have any questions on the promo’s or your compressed air system, feel free to contact us.
