Case Studies

Sample Case Studies for a wide range of Air Knife & Drying System industry use cases

Train Drying System

Train Drying System

SolvAir were approached by Rail Operators on the East Coast of England looking for an Air Knife System solution that would work with a washing system to improve the quality and reliability of their trains across four seasons of weather. The Operators wanted in particular to minimise disruption when temperatures dropped below freezing, as for example this could result in door seals freezing.

Area of Application All Food & Beverage Industrial & Electronics Automotive & Aerospace Rubber & Plastics

Saica Food Packaging Manufacturer

SolvAir were contacted by Saica who were experiencing downtime in their production facility through waste material not being effectively removed and blocking their system. We worked with them to devise a new blower system that was added to their new BOBST Rotary Die Cutter machine within their existing facility.

Bespoke Air Knife System

In 2018, SolvAir worked with a French culinary herb producer to design, build and install a fully-bespoke dual-use Air Knife drying system. This new system meant that our client could now process different products on the same production line, which saved them considerable time, space and money when compared to using multiple drying systems.

Alcoa Aluminium Dryer

We worked with a client whose operations were suffering as a result of ineffective water removal, high levels of noise and high levels of energy usage on their production line.
