AIR KNIFE SYSTEMS
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.Video
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%.Energy comparison

INDUSTRIAL, ELECTRONICS AND SOLAR
Our systems are utilised across all industry sectors. In manufacturing plants we can provide drying, blow-off, cleaning and static neutralisation solutions. Working in heavy industry through to more delicate medical or electronic parts.
AUTOMOTIVE & AEROSPACE
For drying metal or plastics parts after rinsing or even removing coolant emulsion and swarf during a machining process. Our systems are employed on individual components through to assembled vehicles.
EXTRUSIONS, RUBBER & PLASTICS
Extrusion lines are common place in these industries where products pass through water baths in order to cool them. Our solutions are widely used to remove water droplets following liquid cooling and prior to further processing.
PHARMA, MEDICAL AND NUTRA
Medical devices, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals must meet high standards for production and packaging. Paxton Air Systems offer blow off, drying, conveying, air rinsing and static elimination for sensitive applications, both before and after filling or packaging, or during processing.
