Exair PVDF Super Air Knife

Thursday, 18 March, 2010 | Supplied by: Compressed Air Australia Pty Ltd


The Exair PVDF Super Air Knife provides a laminar curtain of air that can be used to blowoff, clean and dry in highly corrosive environments not suitable for stainless steel.

The air knife is suitable for use in the manufacturing of solar cells, lithium ion batteries, semiconductors, medical devices and processes that include electroplating, transfer of acids, caustic chemicals, brine and solvent recovery.

The construction consists of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), Hastelloy C-276 alloy screws and a PTFE shim to adjust the force and flow of the airstream. These components offer strength and resistance to UV light, inorganic chemicals, solvents, ozone, weather, fungi, chlorinated hydrocarbons, highly corrosive acids, weak bases and salts.

It can withstand temperatures up to 135°C and has no moving parts to wear out. Air consumption is claimed to be 1/3 that of typical blowoffs and the noise level is quiet at 69 dBA. Compressed air inlets are located on each end and the bottom for easy connection to the plant compressed air system.

The air knife can be mounted end to end without dead spots and is suitable for mounting in tight spaces.
