CASE STUDY: Cleaning Brake Rotors
The Problem: An automotive machine shop that manufactures brake rotors was having problems with chip build-up inside the part. They tried compressed air tubing flattened on their ends with little success. This resulted in high compressed air usage, high sound levels, and danger to their employees.
The Solution: A Model 120021 1-1/4" (32mm) Super Air Amplifier was substituted for the tubing. It provided a larger pattern of air, used less compressed air, the sound level was substantially lower, and it couldn't be dead-ended.
Comment: Bent tubing or drilled pipe are inexpensive and easy to make. However, the initial cost is overshadowed by its high energy use; holes can be blocked and noise level is excessive – both of which are OSHA violations. EXAIR’s Super Air Amplifiers are compact and dependable since there are no parts to wear out. Our patented design moves the most airflow possible while using the smallest amount of compressed air. The lower sound level was another bonus!
