By the time you are reading this, I will be on a week-long venture to the East Coast. My family and I will be venturing off to South Carolina and spending some time on a beach soaking up the sun, trying to keep sand out of places it shouldn’t be, like your sandwich, and generally just spending some much-needed time together. While I was preparing my blog for the week I was trying to think of a topic and came up with; where all could EXAIR Products be used on a beach and what have customers used our products for over the years at or near the beach.
The first thought was for fishing. Surf fishing has seen many advances in the past several years in ways to get your bait out further and further. While EXAIR doesn’t offer drones, we do offer an EXAIR Line Vac which could be coupled with a storage tank and several fittings to literally launch your bait out of a rigid tube. Much like a spud gun would. I might suggest trying to keep a tighter-packed bait as any kind of projectile is going to have a good amount of force hitting it when using compressed air. If it is too loose, you may end up looking like the Cincinnati Style Three Way Prof. Penurious launched.
This got me thinking about how we actually do sell products to a deep sea fishing vessel, and we have blogged about it before and how the Sanitary Flange Line Vacs were used in a de-boning operation as John Ball mentioned in his recent blog.
I’ve also helped a construction company in the past that was trying to remove sand from around a home’s foundation to do some quick excavation in an area where heavy equipment could not go. This was achieved by using a tow-behind air compressor and a 2″ Heavy Duty Line Vac to suck the sand up and relocate it to another location around 25 feet away. The contractor was then able to complete his work and go to where the sand had been dispersed and move it back with the same setup.
We’ve even helped with sucking up oil and other viscous fluids floating on top of the water when needed. As long as you have compressed air available or the ability to get compressed air to the site, EXAIR can help even at the beach. If you want to discuss any of the applications mentioned, contact an Application Engineer today.
