EXAIR's Super Ion Air Knife eliminates static electricity from paper, plastics and other product surfaces where poor print quality, dust attraction, tearing, or jamming are a problem.

Available from CompressAir Technologies , the 23cm (9") stock length is suited to the standard widths of many common materials.

Static electricity charges that occur as a result of low humidity during the winter months, high speeds, or insulators rubbing against one another, can be eliminated.

Crisp print quality (like the ink jet application shown in the photo), product cleanliness and throughput, can improve dramatically.

The Super Ion Air Knife uses a small amount of compressed air to establish a uniform sheet of airflow that is filled with positive and negative ions from an electrically powered ionising bar.

The laminar airflow minimises recombination of the ions and moves them over long distances for large area coverage. Force can be adjusted from a "blast" to a "breeze".

Air consumption has been minimised to only 3 SCFM of compressed air at 5 psig for normal operation. The shockless design is UL component recognised to US and Canadian safety standards. There are no moving parts to wear out. Lengths up to 48" are available from stock.

Applications include surface cleaning, neutralising plastics, bag opening, pre-paint dust removal, printing machinery, packaging operations and elimination of painful static electricity shocks.
