EXAIR manufactures a variety of Intelligent Compressed Air™ products that can cool, clean, coat, convey, and conserve. They’re designed with efficiency, OSHA safety, and high quality in mind. One of our best products for replacing open pipes for blow-off is our Super Air Nozzles. They will improve the safety for your personnel and save you much money by reducing the compressed air usage. The payback period is typically less than two months. What could make these products even better? Making them adjustable, with the ability to aim them exactly where you need them! EXAIR offers Swivel Fittings with our Air Nozzles and Jets to achieve this. In this blog, I will cover the features and benefits of both products.
EXAIR’s engineered Air Nozzles and Jets are designed to optimize your compressed air system. Inefficient solutions are commonly used in the form of inexpensive nozzles, and sometimes even worse, open pipes and tubes. An open pipe or tube, even if “flattened”, wastes an excessive amount of compressed air and is not OSHA compliant. The wasted compressed air can create problems in your facility due to unnecessarily high energy costs as well as pressure loss in your system, affecting other pneumatic processes. An open pipe or tube will also produce sound levels in excess of 100 dBA. At these noise levels, according to OSHA, permanent hearing damage can occur in just 2 hours of exposure. If one of your goals is to reduce air consumption and improve safety in your facility, look no further than EXAIR’s engineered Air Nozzles and Jets.
To add versatility to the EXAIR Air Nozzles and Jets, we offer Swivel Fittings. Swivel Fittings are a great way to securely install and aim EXAIR nozzles. They are dynamic, as they can be adjusted and set to a flow direction with 50-degrees of movement. They are made from stainless steel for corrosion resistance, with ports ranging from 4mm to 1” NPT. If you need positioning for precise blowing or adjustments for different locations, the Swivel Fittings could be a nice addition to include with your EXAIR Super Air Nozzles and Jets.
Companies that think about safety when using blowoff devices will evaluate the items that they purchase. Some of the more common fines for OSHA violations deal with loud noises and dead-end pressure. To avoid any future fines, it is important and more economical to purchase EXAIR products. If you would like to improve safety and save money with your current blow-off devices, an Application Engineer at EXAIR can help you select the appropriate items.
