Is it possible to control the length of the content or excerpt for a specific query/loop?

I have come across the following code, but this changes the length for all excerpts, I want it focused on a specific custom query.

    add_filter('excerpt_length', 'my_excerpt_length');
function my_excerpt_length($length) {
return 20; }

Can apply different excerpts to each time you actually call the_excerpt
