EXAIR’s new Soft Grip Back Blow Safety Air Gun delivers a blast of air to effectively blow debris and liquids from pipe or hose inside diameters, channel, bores, holes, internal threads and other internal parts. The unit’s many best-in-class features makes it an ideal — and safe — choice for clearing out coolant, chips and light oils from machining processes.
This air gun has been designed with ergonomics in mind. Its soft grip keeps the operator’s hand in a comfortable position so it can be used continuously for hours without fatigue. In addition, an array of holes on the Model 1006SS Back Blow Air Nozzle provides a forceful back facing 360-degree airflow to clear out coolant, chips and light oils from machining processes. This nozzle prevents blowing chips further into a part, tube or pipe, and eliminates any safety hazard created by blowing debris out the far end of a pipe or tube. However, since airflow is directed back towards the operator, personal protective equipment is recommended. Chip shields are available to protect the operator from the exiting debris.
The air gun’s air consumption is only 22 SCFM at 80 PSIG, with a low sound level of 80 dBA. The nozzle is manufactured with a small profile, and will fit inside openings as small as ⅞ inches. It is effective on diameters up to four inches, and constructed of type 316 stainless steel to provide durability and superior resistance to corrosion. The airflow that exits the nozzle is quiet and cannot be blocked, which complies with OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.95(a) and 1910.242(b). It is also CE compliant.
EXAIR also stocks extension pipes from 12 to 72 inches to provide necessary reach for longer tube and pipe clean out. In addition to the Soft Grip Back Blow Safety Air Gun, EXAIR offers Precision, Heavy Duty and VariBlast Compact Safety Air Guns. See more online.
