Clippard: Multi-check valves

Clippard’s manifold mounted multi-check valves – the R-614, the R-337, and the R-338 – are housed in a valve body designed to mount and link together with a simple piping system that eases assembly and plumbing, resulting in reduced labor costs, errors in installation, and the potential for plumbing leakage.

New Powerful Stainless Steel Flat Air Nozzle Saves Space, Saves Money and Resists Corrosion

EXAIR's new 1" Stainless Steel Flat Super Air Nozzle™ produces a flat 1" (25mm) wide airstream with a strong blowing force of 9.8 ounces (278g) when mounted 12" (305mm) from the target.
At the heart of the pneumatics solution on the Rhino 12 MAP tray-packing system is the eight-station VTUB electronically controlled manifold.

Cold Gun Video

EXAIR’s Cold Gun Aircoolant System™ makes it possible to replace messy mist systems and improve dry machining operations using clean, cold air! It’s a new solution to an old problem. Heat build up on dry machining operations reduces tool life and machining rates. The CE compliant Cold Gun Aircoolant System produces a stream of clean, cold air at 50°F (28°C) below supply air temperature. Operation is quiet and there are no moving parts to wear out. It will remove heat to prolong tool life and increase productivity on machining operations when liquid coolants cannot be used.

Static Eliminator Video

A new technology solution to the old problem of static build-up. EXAIR Static Eliminators maximize ionized airflow while minimizing compressed air consumption. A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionized by an emitter point (or points) and delivered to the charged surface. Static is neutralized from distances up to 20 feet (6.1m) away. Thus, EXAIR Static Eliminators work effectively in spite of obstructions, three dimensional configurations, web "rippling", etc.

Air Knife Video

EXAIR's Super Air Knife™ is a quiet, hard-hitting curtain of air for blowoff, cleaning, drying, and cooling, dramatically reducing compressed air usage and noise when compared to other blowoffs. The Super Air Knife offers a more efficient way to clean, dry or cool parts, webs or conveyors. It delivers a uniform sheet of laminar airflow across the entire length with hard-hitting force. Even at high pressures of 80 PSIG (5.5 BAR), the sound level is surprisingly quiet at 69 dBA for most applications! See the CE compliant Super Air Knife in action!

Cabinet Cooler Video

EXAIR Cabinet Cooler® Systems are a low cost, reliable way to cool and purge electronic control panels. EXAIR Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube to produce cold air from compressed air - with no moving parts. The compact Cabinet Cooler can be installed in minutes through a standard electrical knockout. NEMA 12, 4 and 4X Cabinet Coolers that match the NEMA rating of the enclosure are available in many cooling capacities for large and small control panels. They are the only compressed air powered coolers that are CE compliant. Available in 316 Stainless Steel also.
