Longer Super Air Knives Cover Wide Spans

EXAIR has expanded Long Super Air Knives to include a maximum length of 108″ (2743mm) and is now manufacturing all knives 60″ (1524mm) and longer in one piece construction. New one piece construction ensures seamless airflow and eliminates coupling multiple short length air knives together. One piece construction decreases overall height by ½″ making it better for tight spaces.

Large Super Air Nozzle Resists Corrosion And High Temperature

EXAIR's new 1 NPT Stainless Steel Super Air Nozzle™ delivers 6.6 pounds of strong blowing force for blowoff, cooling and drying applications located in corrosive, high temperature, food and pharmaceutical environments. Because the force is more than 8 times that of ordinary air nozzles, it is ideal for blowing heavy materials and where the air nozzle can’t be mounted close to the target surface.

Long Ionizing Bars Eliminate Static Cling

EXAIR’s new Long Ionizing Bars are now available to eliminate static electricity on paper, film and plastics that are up to 96″ (2438mm) wide. Static electricity can attract dust and foreign materials, ruin product appearance, produce tearing or jamming and zap personnel. The profile of the electrically powered Ionizing Bar is compact, allowing it to fit in the confined spaces of machinery, where the static charge is generated. A high concentration of positive and negative ions produce fast static decay, neutralizing any surface within 2″ (51mm) of the bar. The long length of the Ionizing Bars allows them to be used across large production lines. The unique design of the shockless Ionizing Bar offers improved performance and reliability in industrial applications. Life expectancy has been extended by insertion molding the stainless steel ion emitters into a durable plastic. The ability to eliminate static can be greatly improved when attaching a Super Air Knife to the Ionizing Bar. The Super Ion Air Knife delivers more ions and is effective from a greater distance which is ideal for high speed, high charge applications. Air delivery can also remove dust and clean the product surface.

New High Power Flat Air Nozzle Saves Space and Money

EXAIR's new 1" High Power Flat Super Air Nozzle produces a flat 1" (25mm) wide airstream with a strong blowing force of 16 ounces (462g) when mounted 12" (305mm) from the target. The unique design of this super-efficient nozzle makes it an ideal fit for both tight spaces and tight budgets. The 1" High Power Flat Super Air Nozzle uses EXAIR's patented technology to maximize entrained airflow while reducing noise levels. A precise amount of air is released through the 0.025" (0.64mm) air gap opening that is set with a stainless steel shim positioned between the body and removable cap. The airstream pulls in surrounding room air to produce a wide, forceful stream of high velocity, laminar airflow. Air consumption is 17.5 SCFM (495 SLPM) at 80 PSIG. The 82 dBA sound level is below the limits of the OSHA maximum allowable noise exposure standard 29 CFR 1910.95(a). Force and flow may be easily adjusted by installing different shim thicknesses. Optional swivel fittings and Stay Set Flexible Hoses to aim the nozzle are also available. The 1" High Power Flat Super Air Nozzle is available in zinc aluminum alloy construction, suitable for rugged industrial applications. Applications include ejecting heavy parts and slugs, chip removal, part cleaning, drying, liquid blowoff and cooling.
