Air Cannon Blows Away Dirt Debris
Brushing off or wiping down farm or construction equipment can be slow and tedious, and power-washing can leave a mess. Coilhose Pneumatics has designed a heavy-duty blowgun, powered by compressed air, which makes cleaning equipment quick and easy.
  The Coilhose Cannon, a heavy-duty die-cast blowgun, was originally designed for road construction to blow heavy dirt and debris out of trenches and off tracks and equipment. But since its introduction last fall the blowgun has found a home in a wide variety of industries - from cleaning equipment in paper mills, to preparing road surfaces for paving, to cleaning combines and other agricultural equipment on farms.
  Users will need a large compressor since the Canon consumes 135 cfm at 100 psi. However, the Cannon's unique tip configuration draws in outside air to amplify the stream provided by the compressor, which makes it a much more powerful and more economical alternative to homemade "pipe-and-ball-valve" blowguns. The Cannon is also lighter and safer, and features a unique trigger, which will stop the air flow if the gun is dropped.
  "The extreme ease trigger is unique," says Heather Schomp, marketing manager. "It takes minimal force to actuate, so there's less fatigue. It's also very durable and well sealed."
  The Coilhose Cannon, part of the N.J. company's "Extreme Construxion" line, comes standard with a 24 or 48-in. extension and safety nozzle. Multi-jet air cannons are also available. Prices range from $164.90 to $235.40. Call the factory for more product or application details.
