Fiktech provides advice, pre-engineering and components to solve various production problems. Several stainless steel 316 air knives were recently delivered, complete with side channel fans & accessories.
An air knife is a compressed air filled chamber with a smooth joining path to a calibrated exit slot. This ensures an even outflow speed over the full length of the blade. The strong airflow from the airknife can be used as a production tool to: Remove adherent moisture, disperse viscous layers, remove dust and debris, and support ionization. The air knives should preferably be mounted in such a way that adjustment of the height and angle is possible so that an optimal position for the different products can be set or adjusted.
