How Air Knife Systems Work

Air Knives are often the most efficient and effective method of removing or controlling foreign substances for any surface.

Most Air Knives are stationary with products passing through them on a conveyor however there are also systems where the product is stationery and the Air Knives move around it.

Compressed Air vs Air Blowers

Air Blowers and compressed air machines are the two main devices used by manufacturers to create high-speed air streams for industrial use.

The main difference between compressors and blowers is the pressure ratio. Compressors operate at a high-pressure ratio, and blowers a low-pressure ratio.

How Air Blowers Work

Air Blowers are devices designed to take in air at an inlet, and expel it at an outlet, whilst increasing both the speed and the volume of air.
