We are having a mild winter in Cincinnati, Ohio, and even though the poison ivy seems dead, you can still catch it. My sweetheart was collecting brush, and in two days, she broke out. She had a rash on her arms, legs, face, and stomach. And if you ever had poison ivy, you know how itchy it is. The problem is that if you itch it, you can spread it.
It started me to think of things that are a nuisance in manufacturing, like noise exposure to personnel and wasted costs within processes. The Intelligent Compressed Air Products by EXAIR can reduce noise levels and electrical costs. One very simple exercise would be to locate all your open pipes that use compressed air. They can be located on machines to blow off debris and even on the end of air guns. For every open type pipe, place an EXAIR Super Air Nozzle on the end of it. You will notice very quickly that the noise level is reduced. It can drop the noise by as much as 40 decibels. The other thing that you will notice is your monthly electric bill. By adding our Super Air Nozzles to the end of your inefficient blow off pipes, you can be saving over $1,000/year for every open type pipe.
If you have poison ivy, I would suggest calamine lotion or here are some additional tips. If you have high noise levels and high energy costs, then I would suggest EXAIR products. You can discuss how EXAIR can save you money and reduce your noise level by contacting one of the Application Engineers at EXAIR.
