Stainless Steel Air Knife

An air knife is a tool used to blow off liquid or debris from products as they travel on conveyors. The air knife consists of a high-intensity, uniform sheet of airflow to alter the surface of a product without mechanical contact.

Air knives remove liquids, control the thickness of liquids, dry liquid coatings, remove foreign particles, cool product surfaces or create a hold down force to assist in the mechanical bonding of materials to the surface. Electrical currents from anti-static bars can also be injected into the exit air knife stream to neutralize the static electricity charge on surfaces.

Applications:
  • Drying
  • Belt Cleaning
  • Static Control
  • Cooling
  • Coating Drying
Industries:
  • Food & Beverage
  • Automotive
  • Cable & Wire
  • Recycling
  • Metals Processing
  • Packaging & Labeling
