EXAIR Super Air Knives deliver a uniform sheet of laminar airflow across the entire length with hard-hitting force offering a more efficient way to clean, dry or cool parts, webs or conveyors.

The best way to cut energy costs is through proper maintenance and use of the compressed air system. The most important factor to dramatically boost efficiency is proper use. The Super Air Knife uses only 1/3 of the compressed air of typical blowoffs used in cleaning, cooling and drying operations and can be instantly cycled on and off.

Even at high pressures of 80 PSIG (5.5 BAR), the sound level of the Super Air Knife is surprisingly quiet at 69 dBA for most applications. Air amplification ratios (entrained air to compressed air) of 40:1 are produced. Meets OSHA maximum dead-ended pressure and noise requirements and is CE compliant.

Reduce compressed air while drying, blowing off, cooling, opening, floating & separating

Dry - The laminar airflow of the Super Air Knife is perfect for removing moisture prior to packaging, painting, labelling, bar coding and assembly. Common applications include drying parts, rolled steel, circuit boards, webs, bottles, cans and more. Velocity is easily adjusted from a "blast" to a "breeze" with a pressure regulator.

Blowoff - The Super Air Knife is ideal for blowing off chips, dirt or water from parts, webs or conveyors. It delivers a uniform sheet of air that has the same force across the entire length. There are no interruptions or "dead spots" which mean all surfaces are dried or cleaned. The Super Air Knife is available in aluminium, PVDF or stainless steel for corrosive and high temperature applications.

Cool - Great volumes of airflow can be generated in very tight spaces due to the compact size of the Super Air Knife. Flow and force are easily controlled with a pressure regulator, allowing fast or gradual cooling. Shims can be installed if additional hard-hitting velocity is required.

Open, Float, Separate - The uniform airflow exits the Super Air Knife in a perfectly straight line (does not deflect). It is ideal for opening bags and pouches, floating webs, and keeping environments separate. 

Applications:

  • Part drying after wash
  • Sheet cleaning in strip mills
  • Conveyor cleaning
  • Part or component cooling
  • Web drying or cleaning
  • Environmental separation
  • Pre-paint blowoff
  • Bag opening/ fill operations
  • Scrap removal on converting operations
