EXAIR's new 3/4 NPT Stainless-Steel Super
Air NozzleTM delivers 4.5 lb of strong blowing force for blow-off, cooling and
drying applications located in corrosive, high-temperature, food and
pharmaceutical environments. The force is more than five times that of ordinary
The aerodynamic design of the 3/4 NPT Stainless-Steel
Super Air Nozzle directs the compressed air to a single point of convergence,
delivering a concentrated stream of high-velocity airflow. Safe operation is
assured since the airflow cannot be blocked as required by OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.242(b). At 80 PSIG, the air consumption is
91 SCFM. The sound level of 96 dBA is below the limits of the OSHA maximum
allowable noise exposure standard 29 CFR
The Type 316 stainless-steel construction
of this Super Air Nozzle has a 1-1/4 inch (32 mm) hex body for easy
installation using a standard wrench or socket. Applications include ejection
of heavy parts, drying, part and machinery cleaning, chip removal, liquid blow-off,
and cooling hot parts. Price is $259.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10.

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
