The birth of the internet and personal computer brought to light a new form of hacking. For many years now hacking has been considered a negative action, even criminal. However, within the past several years the term lifehacking has come to mean a process of bettering your life through tips and tricks. There are entire blogs and TED talks about life hacking, so that has gotten me thinking of how can EXAIR hack your compressed air system and turn it into a life hack?
All of our products are designed and engineered to make your life easier and better. The best product I can think of to demonstrate this is our Super Air Knife With Plumbing Kit Installed. This is an option for any of our Super Air Knives which are longer than 24″ that makes installation even easier on your end. The plumbing kit has already connected air to each port on the Super Air Knife so all you have to do is plumb air to a single port at the end of the kit assembly. See the picture below for a better idea.
Another item that has helped many customers is our Chip Trapper System. This is essentially a modified or hacked Reversible Drum Vac System which adds the benefit of filtering the liquid you are sucking up to a 5 micron level. (Other filter levels/sizes available.) This means you can make your cutting fluid last longer and cut that rancid coolant smell in your machine shop down because the bacteria in the coolant doesn’t have any solids to live upon. This also means that you won’t be giving your coolant reclamation company any of your valuable solids so you keep more of your scrap profits.
So if you are looking for a way to make your life easier while you are working with compressed air, let us know, we’ll see how you can hack your compressed air applications.
