VariBlast™ Compact Safety Air Gun

EXAIR’S VariBlast™ Safety Air Gun is a small and lightweight air gun capable of handling tough jobs. Designed with a variable flow trigger it is possible to produce different force values from the same nozzle simply by pulling the trigger. This type of air guns can be outfitted with all of our 1/8″ NPT engineered air nozzles. Extensions are available up to 72″ (1,82m) long.

The wide variety of intelligent compressed air nozzles installed on the VariBlast Compact Safety Air Gun make it a great selection for light to medium duty applications requiring force values of up to 1 pound while remaining among the most efficient air guns in EXAIRS’s product line. EXAIR Super Air Nozzles are engineered to maximize entrainment of ambient air while minimizing air consumption and noise. Safe operation is assured since airflow that exits the nozzle can not be blocked, OSHA standard 1910.242(b). The 58 to 75 dBA noise level is well below the limits of the OSHA maximum noise exposure standard 29 CFR 1910.95(a).

Engineered air nozzles are available in Type 316 stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance, PEEK thermoplastic for nonmarring and chemical resistance or a zinc/aluminum alloy for general purpose applications. The air gun body is cast aluminum. Has two 1/4″ NPT air inlets to ensure ergonomic handling. All models are available with an impact resistant polycarbonate Chip Shield.
