Why is compressed air safety a concern?
Compressed air is commonly referred to as the "fourth utility" because it is very common as a resource within manufacturing, mining and processing environments.
Are there regulations that govern the use of compressed air?
Yes, OSHA has two important standards relevant to compressed air. Standard 29 CFR 1910.242(b) is specific to compressed air use for cleaning and states - "Compressed air shall not be used for cleaning purposes except where reduced to less than 30 p.s.i. and then only with effective chip guarding and personal protective equipment.
How do EXAIR's engineered air nozzles work?
Air Nozzles use the Coanda effect to amplify compressed airflow up to 25 times or more. The air is always ejected so it can vent safely, well below OSHA dead end pressure requirements, should the nozzle end be blocked. Learn more now.
