Air Control Industries’ Airknife systems, equipped with an optional deionisation attachment, can provide a solution in cleaning, drying, cooling and curing applications where static is an issue.

Such systems help provide an effective elimination of residual debris from manufacturing processes, helping to ensure blemish-free end products.

They are suitable for web materials and component manufacturing.

They are said to be cleaner than compressed-air alternatives because there is no risk of air contamination from oil and/or condensate; quieter and safer because they deliver large volumes of air at low velocity; and more cost effective because they use correctly sized, dedicated blowers that require only minimal maintenance.

Because these Airknives provide a continuous and even curtain of deionised air across full product/web widths via linear plenums, they ensure full surface areas are treated.

ACI Airknife systems can be as simple as connecting a single blower to a 1m Airknife, or they might incorporate multiple blowers and airknives, as well as including an array of accessories, depending on the size and shape of the customer’s product.

The blower might be located locally or remotely and housed in an acoustic chamber.
