Paxton Headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, Paxton Products is the industry leader in air delivery solutions, services and products. Paxton Products is part of the globally recognized Illinois Tool Works (ITW), a Fortune 200 company located in Chicago, Illinois. For over 50 years, Paxton Products has provided superior products, unmatched engineering expertise and an industry-best warranty with a 100% performance guarantee.

In 1957, Paxton Products introduced the racing industry’s first high-performance supercharger, an air compression device that enhanced the speed and performance of the engine. In response to the 1970’s energy crisis, Paxton pioneered the first centrifugal blower for commercial and industrial applications, utilizing the same high-performance, energy-efficient air delivery technology used in the supercharger. The blower for industrial applications was driven by an electric motor and pulley system, producing significant amounts of air flow with minimal energy usage.

A pioneer in the development of air-knives and widely regarded as an expert in air flow systems and solutions, Paxton has refined today’s air-knife designs for “precision-drying,” coating control, removal of dust and other unwanted materials, as well as air curtains and other drying applications. Paxton Products’ technical application engineers have decades of experience and can design a solution for your application needs.

With over 50 years of industry expertise combined with the strong global foundation of ITW, Paxton Products is now the preferred solution for drying and blow-off applications around the world.

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.
