EXAIR, represented by Compressed Air Australia , has released the Soft Grip safety air gun. It delivers a blast of air that safely removes chips, dust and other contaminants from the surface of products, machinery and work surfaces.
The design keeps the operator's hand in a comfortable position so it can be used for hours of continuous use without fatigue. A large trigger permits easy on/off control with one or more fingers.
Air consumption is 14 cubic feet a minute at 80 psi with a sound level of 74dBA. A force of 368g can be obtained. The airflow cannot be blocked, in compliance with OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.95(a) and 1910.242(b).
The air gun has a die cast aluminium body that is suited to industrial use and incorporates a hanger hook for easy storage. Aluminium extension pipes up to 1.83m long provide reach for areas that are not easily accessible. Applications include parts cleaning, chip removal, part drying, part ejection, and liquid blowoff.
