Product Overview

The Hardened X-Stream Air Blade® Air Knife is now available with a special hard coated surface over its Aluminium body for mildly corrosive environments and to address any abrasive contact to the surface.

It 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.

Priced only slightly above the price of regular anodized Aluminium Nex Flow® X-Stream® Air Blade® these units can sometimes eliminate the need to go to more costly and heavy Stainless Steel units and save hundreds of dollars in cost! As with the regular anodized Aluminium units, the new Hardened X-Stream® Air Blade® comes complete with a Stainless Steel shim to set the air gap (most others use cheap plastic which can wear out quickly) and are held together with Stainless Steel screws.

Available in 2”, 3”, 6”, 9”, 12”, 15”, 18”, 24”, 30”, 36”, 42”, 48” and 54” lengths as standard they can also be coupled together using a coupling kit for longer spans. The Nex Flow® X-Stream® Air Blade® has proven to be of high quality, high performance and one of the most quiet, if not “the most quiet” designs on the market for all types of blow-off and cooling applications. Eliminating a row of drilled pipe can save up to 90% of compressed air costs.

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.
