EXAIR's new 80mm Super Ion air knife removes static electricity from plastics, webs, printed materials and other product surfaces where dust, tearing, jamming or hazardous shocks are a problem.
Available from CompressAir Technologies , the air knife provides a sheet of air to sweep surfaces clean of particles, dust and dirt, and is effective up to six metres away.
Surface cleanliness (like syringes shown in the photo), production speeds and product quality can improve dramatically.
The Super Ion air knife produces a laminar sheet of airflow that floods an area or surface with static eliminating ions.
It has been engineered to fit in tight spaces while providing excellent coverage, even if mounting close to the charged surface is not possible.
The force of the knife can be adjusted from a "blast" to a "breeze" and requires less than 1scfm of compressed air at 5psi for normal operation.
The sound level is hard to detect at 50dBA. The shockless design is UL component recognised to US and Canadian safety standards and has no moving parts to wear out.
Standard lengths up to 1220mm are available as well as made-to-order lengths.
Applications include container and web cleaning, pre-paint dust removal, neutralising plastics, bag opening, printing machinery, packaging operations and elimination of painful static electricity shocks.
