EXAIR’s patented Intellistat Ion Air Gun has been designed to eliminate static in sensitive processes like electronics testing or assembling, clean processes and laboratories. This video illustrates the ease of replacing its emitter point, which may be necessary after long term use. The video shows you how to open up the gun and replace the emitter point inside. It is a very simple process and will take only minutes. The tools needed are a 3/16″ socket and some pliers.
If you have any questions about compressed air systems or want more information on any of EXAIR’s products, give us a call, we have a team of Application Engineers ready to answer your questions and recommend a solution for your applications.

This video will give a thorough walk-through on how to clean the emitter point on EXAIR Ion Air Jets model 8194 and Ion Air Guns model 8193. This is the same procedure for replacing a damaged emitter point. This procedure is for new style Static Eliminators with integrated grounded terminals, released on February 1, 2016.
I recently took on the task of getting a pair of 50 year old vintage bicycles up to snuff for riding once more. They hadn’t moved in about 30 years, so I knew it was a tall order. After replacing the tires, tubes and disassembling, cleaning and lubricating a 3 speed transmission (a mechanical wonder!), I decided to strip off some of the rusted old accessories. One of these was a battery operated headlight.
Aside from being damaged beyond repair, the headlight was outdated to say the least. For comparison, a modern LED bicycle light is shown on the left. These two lights have little to nothing in common. The one of the left is powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery. The one on the right uses disposable alkaline batteries. The one on the left is made of weather resistant materials like aluminum and rubber. The one on the right is made of steel (very pitted and rusty steel at this point…). The one on the left is easy to mount on just about any tube of a bike frame and lightweight. The one on the right has a special bracket that has to be mounted on the gooseneck and has enough mass to anchor a 60 foot yacht.
The point is that the old light wasn’t just rusted beyond repair, it wasn’t worth repairing even if it could have been. Ever see that in your manufacturing environment? A blowgun that has a stuck trigger for instance. Maybe it could be repaired, but what about that non-OSHA compliant nozzle it has attached to it? Whatever meager savings you might get from trying to repair the old gun and continuing using an unsafe blowoff could quickly be offset by and OSHA fine. Time to upgrade to an EXAIR Precision Safety Air Gun , Soft Grip Safety Air Gun or Heavy Duty Safety Air Gun!
Don’t get me wrong – I ABHOR the throw away society I see around me in the world today. Why else would I bother to fix up two 50 year old bikes? But sometimes it’s best to replace the old thing with something new that is safer and more efficient – like an LED bike light, or an OSHA compliant EXAIR Safety Air Gun. Need help figuring out which Safety Air Gun to use? Our experienced Application Engineers are just a phone call away!
Today’s video blog is going to discuss the options and proper way to replace a filter element in an EXAIR Auto Drain Filter Separator. This is done to ensure your compressed air system is still running efficiently and maintains the quality of the compressed air in your system.
