Aluminum Silent X-Stream® Air Blade® Air Knives | Nex Flow Air Products

Aluminum Silent X-Stream® Air Blade® Air Knives

Product Overview

The X-Stream Air Blade® Air Knife from Nex Flow® is easy to install and maintain. It can reduce both compressed air consumption and noise levels. used to blow off liquid or debris from products as they travel on conveyors.

It produces a “laminar” flow of air using the Coanda effect. This draws a large volume of air from the surrounding area along with the small amount of compressed air from the Air-Blade. It also produces an output flow up to 40 times.

Our air knife systems payback on compressed air savings can be seen in some applications.

Features / Advantages

  • Quiet – 69 dBA for most applications
  • Made of Anodized Aluminum, Hard Anodized Aluminum, 303/304 Stainless or 316L Stainless Steel.
  • 40:1 air amplification
  • Stainless Steel shim
  • Uniform airflow across entire length
  • Variable force and flow
  • No moving parts – maintenance free
  • Easy mounting
  • Compact, rugged, easy to install
  • Stainless steel screws in all models

How The Silent X-Stream® Air-Blade® Air Knife Works

Compressed air enters the air knife at the rear (or end) ports at (A). Air is entrained at point (B) and (D) by the compressed air stream that leaves the air knife from a small gap at point (C). The entrained air follows the profile that directs the airflow in a perfectly straight line to create a uniform sheet of air along the entire length of the Air Blade® air knife. The amplified air stream maximized velocity and force are maximized as a well-defined sheet of laminar flow with minimal wind shear for reduced energy use in the blow off and cooling.
