How do air knives work?
Air Knives are simple and highly efficient devices for drying and cleaning products. An Air Knife System uses a high intensity, uniform sheet of air which is used to effectively:
- Remove liquids
- Dry liquid coatings
- Remove foreign particles
- Cool product surfaces
- Create a hold down force to assist in the mechanical bonding of materials to the surface
