CHARLOTTE, NC – February 26, 2010 – STREAMTEK Air Knife Systems are a non contact method for removing unwanted surface liquid, dirt, moisture, coatings, debris, contamination, static charge, heat etc during the manufacturing process of typically conveyed parts and/or articles.
The AIR KNIFE SYSTEM is powered solely by compressed air. The Air Knife creates continuous Laminar Sheet / Curtain / Stream of hard-hitting airflow that can be easily controlled using a standard pressure regulator. The HIGH VELOCITY airflow blows off the liquid from the surfaces of products and remaining moisture is shattered from the product(s). This hard-hitting high velocity stream of airflow blows away debris, dissipates heat, cleans/protects surfaces and dries/spreads coatings.
An effective AIR KNIFE SYSTEM can be installed using our low cost Canadian made Air Knives strategically located for optimal blow off performance. Most common material of construction used is Aluminum alloy. Air Knife 303 / 316 Stainless Steel is also available for higher temperature and/or corrosive environments.
Some benefits of Air Knife Systems include increased productivity, lower running costs, lower noise levels, compact and rugged, quick n’ easy to install, easy to control airflow velocity, no moving parts making it maintenance free and low capital outlay.
