Exair's soft grip back blow safety air gun delivers a blast of air to blow debris and liquids from internal part features including pipe and hose interior diameters, channels, bores, holes and internal threads. The ergonomic design of the air gun keeps the operator's hand comfortable, so it can be used for hours without fatigue, according to the company.

An array of holes on the Model 1006SS back blow air nozzle provides a back-facing, 360-degree airflow to clear out coolant, chips and light oils from machining processes. This nozzle prevents chips from being blown further into a part, tube or pipe and eliminates the safety hazard of blowing debris out the far end of a pipe or tube. Air consumption is 22 scfm at 80 psig with a sound level of 80 dbA. The nozzle fits inside openings as small as 0.875" and is effective on diameters as large as 4". It is constructed of type 316 stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance. The airflow that exits the nozzle cannot be blocked, which complies with OSHA standards. It is also CE-compliant.

Because airflow is directed back toward the operator, personal protective equipment is recommended. Chip shields to protect the operator from the exiting debris are available. Extension pipes from 12" to 72" provide reach for longer tube and pipe clean out.
