Guardair Air Gun by Saurya Enhancing Worker’s Safety – A Real Case Study

Guardair Air Gun

A tragedy struck in an MNC engineering industry in western India. A diligent and dedicated worker fell victim to the prohibited cleaning practice of using compressed air. He lost his life. A metal particle released from the compressed air pipe line pierced his body as a bullet, which resulted in his untimely death. The company and the worker both turned a blind eye to the guidelines of OSHA COMPLIANCE Act no.1910.242(b) which took worker’s life. OSHA guidelines mandate safety protocols for the use of compressed air.



The Critical Need for Safe Compressed Air Cleaning Practices

Over time, the internal surfaces of compressed air pipe line can be affected by erosion or corrosion. There are different factors contributing to the same such as moisture, abrasives, or chemicals. This can cause small metal particles to dislodge from the inner walls. Once detached, they are entrained within the flow of the air. As compressed air travels through the system, these metal particles can be transported to different parts, including downstream equipment. In severe cases, these particles may cause health hazards when they are inhaled by workers or they come into contact with sensitive components. The company had a stark choice: to remain stuck with unsafe cleaning practices or usher in a new era of safety, value, and accountability. Safety Air Gun by Saurya is an OSHA-compliant alternative to protect worker’s health and safety. Factory air lines normally operate at pressures between 80 and 120 psi (pounds per square inch). Most pneumatic tools, including air guns, require such high pressures to operate effectively. However, OSHA requires that should the nozzle tip of an air gun become dead-ended (blocked), the static pressure at the point of blockage be no more than 30 psi (1.5kg/cm2)
