Air gun complies with OHSA requirements

February 2008 Pneumatics & Hydraulics

The new heavy duty safety air gun from EXAIR, uses air nozzles engineered for safe operation, efficient air consumption and low noise levels. The range of nozzles allows users to tailor air consumption, force and sonic level to specific requirements.

The ergonomic composite rubber grip and wide curved trigger make it comfortable for hours of usage without fatigue. It has a durable cast aluminium body that is designed for rugged, industrial environments. A range of aluminium extension pipes is available if additional reach is required.

The device is equipped with a large 3/8 NPT compressed air inlet to increase the airflow available to the super air nozzle, resulting in higher force and flow than other air guns. The air exhausts from the nozzles have been engineered to deliver the maximum force at minimum air consumption. Typical applications include:

* Parts cleaning.

* Chip removal.

* Part drying.

* Liquid blowoff.

* Part cooling.

* Part ejection.

Designed for low sound emissions and airflow that cannot be blocked, the device complies with OHSA standards. The sound level is quiet and the airflow cannot be blocked, thus complying with OHSA standards.
