AirKnife

The ideal complement for radial blowers, centrifugal blowers and side channel blowers! Put an end to the time-consuming in-house development of devices for achieving uniform air flow or air curtains. ELEKTROR AirKnife perfectly doses and directs the air flow in the required way and to the required spot.

 

Applications of AirKnife

ELEKTROR AirKnives create a laminar static air curtain flow and are ideally suited for drying, cooling or air cleaning of a wide range of products and components. AirKnives are particularly well suited for applications with wide conveying routes. They are ideal for centrifugal fans and side channel blowers.

Sample applications:

Drying: the removal of water or residual moisture from cans, bottles etc. in food industries
Cooling: of plastic products, metal components etc.
Cleaning: the removal of production residues/shavings in machine components or similar.
Air cleaning and blow-off: the removal of dust in packaging processes.

Our specialists will be pleased to provide further information about other Air Knife industries!

Optional extras of AirKnife are available on request

 

The only parts that have to be acquired as options are those relating to individual installation situations, with the scope and quantity to be determined separately for each case. Needless to say, ELEKTROR AirKnife types and industrial fans are perfectly adapted to each other. The maximum pressure increase in the Air Knife should not exceed 350 mbar. The device can be installed in different ways. The AirKnife is ATEX fans certified as long as the fan that is installed is also ATEX certified.
