What are Air Polishers?
are tools used to polish and smooth various surfaces by using high-speed airflow. They are commonly used for finishing and buffing tasks in industries such as automotive, marine, and construction. Air polishers typically use a rotary or orbital motion and can be fitted with various abrasive pads or brushes to achieve the desired level of polishing. Air polishers typically come in two types: random orbital and dual action. Random orbital air polishers rotate in a random pattern, while dual-action air polishers rotate and oscillate at the same time. Both types are effective at removing scratches and swirl marks, as well as leaving a high-gloss finish.
Benefits of the Air Polishers
1. Increased surface shine: Air polishers
can provide a high shine on natural stone and concrete surfaces without the need for chemicals or abrasives.
2. Improved cleaning: The high-speed rotation of the air polisher's disc helps to remove surface dirt, grime, and stains effectively.
3. Reduced physical effort: Air polishers are much lighter and easier to handle compared to traditional mechanical polishers, reducing the physical strain for the user.
4. Time-saving: Air polishers can finish a job much faster than traditional methods, reducing overall project time.
5. Improved air quality: Unlike traditional polishing methods, air polishers do not produce dust, providing a cleaner work environment.
6. Versatility: Air polishers can be used on a variety of surfaces, including marble, granite, and concrete, making it a useful tool for a range of applications.
The composition of the Air Polishers
typically consist of a motor, an air compressor, and a polishing tool attachment. The motor drives the polishing tool, which is connected to the air compressor. The compressed air powers the movement of the polishing tool, allowing it to rotate and remove surface material, such as tooth stain and plaque, from teeth during a dental cleaning procedure. Some air polishers also include a water spray system to cool and lubricate the polishing surface.
