EXAIR’s new flexible stay set hoses are ideal for applications where frequent repositioning of air nozzles is required. At the end of each production run, companies can quickly and easily move their air nozzles to a new position that closely matches the profile of the next part. The effectiveness of each air nozzle can increase dramatically.
When mounted in close proximity to the application, the flexible stay set hose can be bent to aim the airstream at the target surface to be cleaned, dried or cooled. The hose has memory and will not creep or bend. It stays in the same position until it is physically moved by the operator.
Flexible stay set hoses are constructed of reinforced synthetic rubber to assure long life and protection against ozone, weathering, and temperatures up to 70°C. They are available in a variety of lengths from 152mm to 36 914mm. Two styles include one with a male brass fitting on each end, the other with a male brass fitting on one end and a female brass fitting on the other. Energy efficient nozzles, magnetic bases and safety air guns for use with the flexible stay set hoses are available, says Compressed Air Australia .
