AIR KNIFE REMOVES STATIC AND SAVES COMPRESSED AIR

The new fourth-generation Exair Standard Ion Air Knife is reckoned to eliminate static electricity 30% better at low inlet pressures. Not only does this reduce the costs associated with supplying the compressed air, it means that production speeds, product quality and surface cleanliness can all be improved.

The device eliminates static on plastics, webs, sheet stock and other product surfaces where tearing, jamming or hazardous shocks are a problem.

The Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife incorporates Exair’s Standard Air Knife that minimises compressed air use by inducing surrounding airflow at a ratio of 30:1. This amplified airflow carries the ions to the target, making it possible to eliminate static charges in less than 0.5s.

Both the volume and velocity of the airflow are infinitely controllable from a “breeze” to a “blast” to gently wipe or forcefully blow away debris.

Gen4 products have undergone independent laboratory tests to certify they meet the rigorous safety, health and environmental standards of the USA, European Union and Canada that are required to attain the CE and UL marks. They are also RoHS compliant.

The new design features include a metal armoured high-voltage cable to protect against abrasion and cuts, integrated ground connection and electromagnetic shielding. There is also a new selectable voltage power supply.

The Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife product line is available from Compressed Air Australia in 3 to 48in (76 to 1219mm) lengths. The electrical ion source is shockless and there is no radioactive element.

Applications include surface cleaning, neutralising plastics, bag opening, printing machinery, packaging operations and the elimination of painful static electricity shocks.
