EXAIR has designed a new type of nozzle called the Super Air Scraper. This nozzle combines a scraping blade with our 2” Flat Super Air Nozzle. Together, it creates a mechanical force with an air force to remove stubborn sticky material. This patent-pending nozzle can be added to the EXAIR Soft Grip Air Gun to create a powerful scraping tool.
Let’s breakdown the nozzle. The Super Air Scraper nozzle is a model 1144 which has a ¼” NPT female connection. The model 1144-A includes a ¾ – 32 UN adaptor for connecting to the Soft Grip Safety Air Gun extensions. The scraper can be changed when worn with a replacement blade; model 902007. To add flexibility to the Super Air Scraper, a shim set, model 1132SS, can be used to modify the blowing force. With these combinations, the nozzle complements the scraper as an effective way to clean with compressed air.
To control the pressurized air to the nozzle, EXAIR attached the 1144-A Super Air Scraper to the Soft Grip Safety Air Gun, model 1244. This gives a comfortable and ergonomic way to use and operate this product. We offer different extensions for hard-to-reach applications ranging from 6” (152mm) to 72” (1,829mm) in length. With the extensions that are 36” (914mm) and longer, EXAIR installed an additional foam grip sleeve. This gives additional leverage for scraping material at a distance like at the floor level. Chip Shields are also offered to prevent blow-back onto the operator. You can view the details of the new product at this link on our website: Soft Grip Super Air Scraper.
To give some ideas for applications, the Soft Grip Super Air Scraper can be used for removing tape, gasket material, caulk, adhesive, paint, labels, and more. With the addition of air, the detached material is blown away during scraping, keeping the area clean to target the remaining “stuck” material. If gummy or flaky substances are a nuisance for workers, the Soft Grip Super Air Scraper can keep the machine or work station clean and operational.
Just like all cataloged items for EXAIR, we stock these parts for same day shipment with orders placed before 2 p.m. EST. For U.S. and Canadian customers, we offer a 30-day unconditional guarantee to see how great this product can work for your application. If you have sticky, flakey, or greasy substances that need to be removed, the Soft Grip Safety Air Scraper is up to the challenge.
