Exair's safety air
gun has a small diameter nozzle and extension that will fit into tight spaces
with a strong blowing force. The Precision Safety Air Gun uses Exair's Nano Super Air Nozzle which has been engineered
to maximize entrainment of room air while minimizing compressed air
consumption. The Nano Super Air Nozzle is available in a rugged Type 316
Stainless Steel or PEEK plastic to provide non-marring protection should the
nozzle come in contact with other surfaces. The PEEK nozzle provides resistance
to chemicals, fatigue and temperatures up to 320F (160C).
The Precision Safety Air Gun has an ergonomic design to keep the hand in a
comfortable position. A hanger is provided for convenient storage or mounting
to a tool balancer. Prices start at $53.
