These clusters use EXAIR's Super Air Nozzles maximize entrained airflow and force and reduce compressed air use and noise. They are made to replace open pipes and hoses known to be inefficient, dangerous, and contributors to hearing loss. They meet OSHA's maximum allowable noise exposure standard, and the airflow coming out of the nozzles cannot be blocked, which also meets OSHA standards. The clusters have an air consumption of 56, 98 and 168 SCFM at full pressure of 80 PSIG, while providing blowing force of 3.2, 5.7 and 9.8 lb. They are durable, with a zinc aluminum alloy construction attached to an aluminum body, and can work in industrial applications at temperatures up to 158F. Prices start at $175.
