What is a Safe Blow Gun? How to Select one?

Two videos―What is a safe blow gun? and What are the criteria for selecting a blow gun?―are available to help users choose one of these often-noisy tools used to deliver jets of compressed air.

Many workplaces actually use blow guns to perform quick tasks such as light cleaning, drying or removing dust from parts or work areas, to blow out parts, shavings or scraps, or to dry parts in an automated manufacturing process. By taking a few minutes to watch these videos, you’ll be able to choose the right blow gun based on the noise level produced and the thrust required for the task at hand.

These videos complement a fact sheet published on the use and features of the different models of blow gun nozzles used on compressed air guns.
