Air Guns to Meet & Exceed OSHA Standards

The Soft Grip Safety Air Gun is a blow gun which 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 dozens of nozzle options, 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, Stainless Steel, and PEEK thermoplastic as well as forward blowing or back blow nozzle options.

Using any of EXAIR’s Safety Air Guns with an Engineered Air Nozzle will provide 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 compared to standard commercial air blow guns, open pipes, and other homemade attempts to use compressed air efficiently and effectively.

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). Lowering the ambient noise level also helps to improve operator satisfaction of their working environment.

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.

EXAIR Supports your ROI Efforts

EXAIR not only has products that will reduce your air consumption, cost and noise levels but also has the tools to help you calculate the annual savings and Return on Investment (ROI). Sometimes you have the materials in house to make your own pneumatic tools so you get that piece of pipe in the maintenance crib, drill several holes and connect your compressed air. It works, your team is proud of the solution and everyone moves on to the next fire, right?

Several projects later you notice that your compressed air usage seems very high so a team is assembled and challenged with a cost savings program geared towards compressed air savings. EXAIR is the company that can help. We have Intelligent Compressed Air Products, Free Expert Technical Help and savings calculators that can be used to show the savings in your reports and presentations. EXAIR’s cost savings calculator will simplify the savings for each process you study and help your efforts in purchase justifications.

We have several examples of helping our customers save money such as this blog by one of our talented Application Engineers. You will realize more than cost savings as you should also see significant sound reductions and safety improvements as all of our products meet or exceed OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.95 (a) which outlines allowable noise exposure for personnel and OSHA standard 29 CFR1910.242 (b) Dead End Pressure requirements.

When you begin compressed air cost savings program and have questions as to where to start, how to calculate and how to prepare your justifications please give EXAIR a call and talk with one of our many talented Application Engineers. EXAIR’s Intelligent Compressed Air products and Application Engineers will support all your efforts to decrease compressed air usage, reduce sound levels and increase the safety of your environment.

EXAIR Back Blow Nozzles

EXAIR has a wide variety of Air Nozzles with all of them meeting or exceeding OSHA Maximum Allowable Noise Exposure OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.95 (a) and Dead End Pressure Standard 29 CFR 1910-.242 (b). EXAIR takes pride in engineering products that help improve the safety of your environment.

Our Back blow nozzles are no exception as these nozzles are designed to clean the inside of pipe, tube, hose or channel. The Back Blow Nozzle is designed with a series of holes providing a 360 degree of force of air flow clearing out coolant, chips or debris left behind from your manufacturing process. The nozzle prevents buildup of debris from moving deeper into a pipe or out the other end, causing safety hazard(s). Because debris is moving towards the operator it is recommended that the operator wear personal protective equipment. The Back Blow Nozzles come in 3 sizes for your custom use.
