Air Knives

Air knives provide a continuous sheet of high velocity air to strip moisture and debris. Numerous applications include drying of bottles, cans, sachets, steel products, removing excess food toppings and other quality enhancements such as smoothing chocolate toppings. A range of centrifugal blowers precisely matched to the air knives' requirements is available as are all accessories including hoses, splitters and mounting brackets. Complete enclosures, which reduce noise and eliminate spray, are also available and custom systems can be engineered. Refer to the HV fans (blowers) section of this website for further information on the blowers. Also in the air knife family are circular air knives for drying rods, cables, tubes and extrusions. Power nozzles are the solution where a stream of high velocity air is required for removing moisture from difficult surfaces such as the concave underside of cylinders. Compressed air knifes are an option for smaller applications with compressed air readily available. Need assesment of your application? Fill in the quick form.
