EXAIR’s new VariBlast® Precision Safety Air Guns provide a focused blast of air capable of handling tough jobs with remarkable strength. This CE compliant, lightweight air gun uses an engineered valve for variable flow. It can produce an adjustable force upon a target simply by pulling the trigger to a variety of positions. You can generate higher or lower force as needed for an application.
A comfortable full-finger trigger and a convenient hanger loop are built-in to the Variblast Precision Safety Air Gun. It has a ¼” NPT female compressed air inlet at the base of the handle with an option for a BSP threaded adapter. One of the unique features is the replaceable extensions. They come standard with a 6” (152mm) extension. For greater reach, we offer a 12″ (305mm) or a 20″ (508mm) extension for longer reach. The body is made of high-impact, glass-reinforced nylon to resist breakage. They can also be outfitted with an impact-resistant polycarbonate Chip Shield. In combination with the EXAIR Safety Air Nozzles, the airflow that exits the nozzle can’t be blocked, assuring safe operation and compliance with OSHA standard 1910.242(b). Also, the Precision air gun has a low noise level, only 75 dBA, which is well below the limits of the OSHA noise exposure standard 29 CFR 1910.95(a). EXAIR strives to manufacture safe and efficient safety air guns, and the VariBlast Precision fits that bill.
To expand on efficiency, the engineered nozzles are designed to entrain the free ambient air to add mass to the airstream. With an amplification ratio of nearly 25:1, you only have to use a small amount of compressed air to generate a powerful, focused blast. So, by using less compressed air, it will save you a lot of money. EXAIR offers three different sizes in different materials. The largest is the Nano Super Air Nozzle, which only requires 8.3 SCFM (235 SLPM) at 80 PSIG (5.5 Bar). It is made from type 316SS or PEEK thermoplastic. The PEEK nozzle is great for non-marring applications. The smallest unit is our Atto Super Air Nozzle for very small holes. It also comes in 316SS or PEEK thermoplastic. It only uses 2.5 SCFM (71 SLPM) of compressed air at 80 PSIG (5.5 Bar). For the “in-between” force rating, we offer the Pico Super Air Nozzle in 316SS and PEEK. For the different combinations of model numbers, I created a VariBlast chart below.
A substandard blow-off gun is unsafe, loud, and wastes compressed air. They are subject to dangerous conditions and OSHA fines. EXAIR Safety Air Guns can help improve the situation in all these areas. EXAIR stocks a wide range of safety air guns for almost any blow-off application. We stock units ranging from our smallest size; the VariBlast Precision Safety Air Guns up to our largest size; the TurboBalst Safety Air Guns. From August 1st to September 30th, 2022 for qualified purchases; EXAIR will give a 1” Flat Super Air Nozzle as a promotional item with a purchase of a VariBlast Precision, VariBlast Compact, Soft Grip, Heavy Duty, Super Blast, or TurboBlast Safety Air Gun; a $53.00 complimentary gift. If you have any questions about the VariBlast Precision Safety Air Guns or any of our other safety air guns, you can contact an Application Engineer at EXAIR. We will be happy to help you.
