The new Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife from EXAIR (Cincinnati, OH) is designed to eliminate static electricity 34 percent better at low inlet pressures, which saves compressed air and money. According to the company, production speeds, product quality and surface cleanliness can improve dramatically. It also eliminates static on plastics, webs, sheet stock and other product surfaces where tearing, jamming or hazardous shocks are a problem. Benefits include:
- A metal armored high voltage cable to protect against abrasion and cuts, integrated ground connection and electromagnetic shielding.
- EXAIR’s Super Air Knife, which minimizes compressed air use by inducing surrounding airflow at a ratio of 40:1. The unique amplified airflow carries the ions to the target, making it possible to eliminate static charges in less than a half second. Air volume and velocity are infinitely controllable from a “breeze” to a “blast” to gently wipe or forcefully blow away debris.
- Availability from stock in 3 inch to 108 inches long.
- A shockless electrical ion source, and there is no radioactive element. A new selectable voltage power supply has been designed to operate Gen4 products.
Gen4 products have undergone independent laboratory tests to certify they meet the rigorous safety, health and environmental standards of the USA, European Union and Canada that are required to attain the CE and UL marks. They are also RoHS compliant.
