Air Knife Dryers
EXAIR offers the latest engineered air knives that dramatically reduce compressed air usage and noise. The Super, Standard and Full-Flow Air Knives offer a more efficient way to clean, dry or cool parts, webs or conveyors by delivering a uniform sheet of laminar airflow across the entire length with hard-hitting force. Air Knives are available in Aluminum, Type 303 Stainless Steel, Type 316 Stainless Steel and PVDF and are available with one-piece construction in lengths up to 108" (2743mm).
EXAIR air knife systems use compressed air for industrial applications that include drying, removing excess oils and liquids, blow off, and cooling. We offer Super, Standard and Full-Flow Air Knives in standard lengths that range from 3" (76mm) to 108" (2743mm). EXAIR is the only place you can find lengths up to 108" with one-piece construction. Special lengths are available. The Super Air Knife has an air amplification ratio (entrained air to compressed air) of 40:1, while the Standard and Full-Flow Air Knives have a ratio of 30:1.

Company manufactures a range of process equipment for the metal finishing industry. They produce various cleaning systems that their customers use to clean metal parts before finish is applied. This application is concerned with blowing rinse water from expanded metal material after it has gone through a caustic bath and two rinse tanks. Their customer was complaining about water marks and corrosion on product due to being wet during packing. So, they need to get the metal as dry as possible before packing. Two Model 110018SS 18" (457mm) Stainless Steel Super Air Knives were implemented to blow from the top and bottom simultaneously to strip the water off the expanded metal. All corrosion and watermarks were removed from product. End customer was happy with the result.
The Super Air Knife is ideal for blowing off chips, dirt or water from parts, webs or conveyors. It delivers a uniform sheet of air that has the same force across the entire length. There are no interruptions in airflow so all surfaces are dried or cleaned. To see our Air Knives in action, click here.
