EXAIR’s Super Air Knife is the latest generation of the engineered air knife that dramatically reduces compressed air usage and noise when compared to other blowoffs. The Super Air Knife offers a more efficient way to clean, dry or cool parts, webs or conveyors. It delivers a uniform sheet of laminar airflow across the entire length with hard-hitting force. Air amplification ratios (entrained air to compressed air) of 40:1 are produced. The design also meets OSHA maximum dead-end pressure and noise requirements.
The Super Air Knife is suitable 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 means all surfaces are dried or cleaned. The Super Air Knife is available in aluminum, stainless steel, or PVDF for corrosive and high temperature applications.
High noise levels are a common problem for many plants. Compressed air noise often exceeds OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) noise level exposure requirements, resulting in hearing loss to those working in close proximity. Noisy blowoffs become a whisper when replaced with the compact Super Air Knife. Even at high pressures of 80 PSIG (5.5 bar) the sound level is surprisingly quiet at 69 dBA for most applications. Using the Super Air Knife, it is possible to obtain hard-hitting force without the high noise.
