Energy efficient drying, blow off and conveying

To efficiently remove dust and moisture from a surface, Rycobel selects a system of air knives and high speed centrifugal blowers. Due to a high rotanional speed and unique designed impellor Paxton centrifugal blowers deliver a higher volume of air per kW of energy to dry and blow off faster and more efficiently.

How do air knives work?

Air Knives are often the most efficient and effective method of removing or controlling foreign substances for any surface. Most Air Knives are stationary with products passing through them on a conveyor however there are also systems where the product is stationery and the Air Knives move around it. The potential that Air Knives provide for many different kinds of industries is therefore enormous.


Energy saving


Compressed air is often the first solution because the air supply already exists in the factories and it can be applied to the line at a very small cost. Nozzles and pipework are low priced items. The ongoing energy costs to operate the solution are overlooked or not understood by the engineers.

Paxton air knives replace expensive compressed air applications and reduce energy costs by 80%.
