Exair's new single-air-nozzle Super Blast Safety air gun delivers 23 lbs. of blowing force, equivalent to the force of 30 ordinary air guns. It is suitable for long-distance, wide-area blowoff, drying, and cooling applications.
The air gun incorporates a large air nozzle engineered to maximize entrained airflow and force while reducing compressed-air use and noise, the company states. At full pressure of 80 PSIG, it has an air consumption of 460 SCFM. Seven other sizes with single- or multiple-nozzle configurations are available that provide force of 3.2 to 15 lbs. and air consumption from 56 to 300 SCFM.
The large air nozzle has a zinc-aluminum alloy construction. The air gun incorporates a soft-grip handle and spring-loaded manual valve that automatically shuts off if it is dropped. The airflow that exits the gun cannot be blocked and meets OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.95(a) and 1910.242(b), reports the manufacturer.
