Stainless Steel Standard Air Blade® Air Knife | Nex Flow Air Products

Stainless Steel Standard Air Blade® Air Knife

Product Overview

The Standard Stainless Steel  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.

Built and designed for significantly longer life in difficult environments than many competing products. Flexible mounting options and easy to fit in small spaces. Energy reduction in compressed air use up to 90% and noise reductions of 10 dbA.  Maintenance free with output easily controlled, safe to use.

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 30 times.

Features / Advantages

  • Quiet – 72 dBA for most applications
  • Uniform airflow across entire length
  • Minimal Air Consumption
  • Variable force and flow
  • No moving parts – maintenance free
  • Easy mounting
  • Compact, rugged, easy to install
  • Stainless steel screws in all models
  • 30:1 air amplification
  • Anodized Aluminum to protect the surface of aluminum versions
  • Stainless Steel shim
  • 303/304 stainless steel for high temperature and corrosive environments
  • Surface entraining the air can be extended to another surface making an effective barrier

How The  Standard 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) by the compressed air stream that leaves the air knife from a small gap. The entrained air follows the Coanda profile and along the front face (C) that directs the airflow in a perfect straight line at 90 degrees to create a uniform sheet of air along the entire length of the Air Blade TM air knife at it leaves the air knife at point (D). 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.

Offered in aluminum or stainless steel and can be manufactured in any length from a combination of our standard sizes.
