A slotted jet of compressed air acting as an effective air knife to quickly blow superfluous water from parts, often before they enter a dryoff oven.
An extruded or fabricated vessel with a slot designed such that the volume of air in the vessel is greater than that which can escape at atmospheric pressure causing velocity and pressure as a usable work force.
a compact unit consisting of a fan or blower and an aerodynamically designed chamber though which the air is blown to provide a precisely controlled jet of air
a slotted air manifold used to discharge a high-velocity curtain of air for drying or cleaning conveyorized product
A blower device that employs an air stream to push a selected material(s) off a conveyor.
A component on a compressed air line that provides wide are coverage with a thin sheet of air. Also amplifies compressed air flow, reduces noise. Used in blowing, cooling. Also known as air curtain. ( 099)
(1) A mechanical air pressure amplifier. (2) A plenum with a narrow opening to used develop high velocity air from a low pressure air source to (a) dry / remove liquid films from surfaces (b) control the coating of surfaces, or (c) heat or cool.
An air knife is normally used in manufacturing or as the first step in a recursive recycling process to separate lighter or smaller particles from other components for use in later or subsequent steps, post manufacturing parts drying and conveyor cleaning, part of component cleaning. The knife consists of a high intensity, uniform sheet of laminar airflow sometimes known as streamline flow.
