Coilhose Pneumatics solves the problem of “where the heck did I put my blow gun?” with their CoBlo air line coupler, which has a built-in blow gun.
The CoBlo is a female air line coupler that you attach to the end of your air hose. It is meant to be a higher quality coupler, and uses 6 balls to hold onto the male coupler rather than just 4 balls like some cheaper couplers.
The CoBlo has a maximum working pressure of 120 psi. (Note: if the airline pressure exceeds 30 PSI, as a blower the CoBlo might not meet OSHA regulations.)
To activate the blow gun, just press the push button trigger on the side of the coupler.
It doesn’t matter if an air tool is connected to the coupler or not, the blow gun can be used as long as the airflow isn’t blocked by the tool. But, you’ll probably want to disconnect the tool first, for ease of use.
The CoBlo is available in the following coupler styles:
- 1/4″ Female NPT Megaflow (11CBG4F)
- 1/4″ Female NPT ARO (14CBG4F)
- 1/4″ Female NPT Industrial (15CBG4F)
- 1/4″ Female NPT Automotive (16CBG4F)
If you need a refresher on air line couplers, see my post explaining the different types. Megaflow seems to be a proprietary coupling style exclusive to Coilhose Pneumatics, it seems very similar to the Milton high flow V-Style couplers.
The CoBlo coupler blow guns aren’t cheap, they run somewhere between $11 and $15 on Amazon depending on which coupler style you need.
