If you follow my blogs and or Twitter you may know that I am currently the proud father of two wonderful and amazing daughters. My wife and I just recently found out that our third child which is due in early December is also a girl. So I will then be the proud father of three beautiful daughters (and the guy with a really nice shotgun that holds multiple rounds). Some may say I’m overprotective – I’ll just have to agree.
All of our friends continually ask me if I am upset that I didn’t get a son, my truthful response is, “No.” I am rather pleased to have all three girls for right now. The fact is, the oldest and now middle daughter are both already working in the garage with me, constantly wanting to do whatever it is I am doing, and they are a blast to be around. Since they are all three girls I don’t have to worry about giving them that awkward adolescent discussion (I would give that to any boys we may have), and I get to scare whoever tries to come and date any of them when they turn 21 or 25, perhaps 30.
EXAIR is also expanding its family. We have welcomed a wonderful little PEEK nozzle to our already large Super Air Nozzle product family. This one comes in with M5 x 0.5 threads, or with a 1/8th” NPT adapter. The nozzle can produce 5 ozs. of force while using only 4.9 SCFM of compressed air at 80 psig inlet pressure. The PEEK plastic construction gives it excellent ratings for chemical resistance and temperature resistance while also being non-marring. PEEK thermoplastic fits well into the plating industries, metal etching, pickling lines, sea water environments because it outperforms the 316SS material of our other nozzles when in those environments. The maximum temperature rating for this nozzle is 320F.
The picture above shows the nozzle removing excess plating solution which takes advantage of the chemical resistance for nickel plating, as well as the non marring in case of contact with the part.
The wonderful and wacky Professor Penurious has named this little nozzle as our Pico Super Air Nozzle.
If you have an application that needs good chemical resistance, or just an upgrade to save compressed air, contact us.
