Compressed Air Operated: Air Knife - Air Knives
STREAMTEK's Air Knives are the most efficient and energy saving method to deliver compressed air for large drying, cleaning or cooling applications.
How do Air Knives Work?
Compressed air flows through an inlet at the end of a port and into a plenum or housing chamber in an Air Knife. From the plenum chamber, the compressed air leaves the air knife while the surrounding air is sucked into the airflow, adding to the amplification ratio of 30:1 at 6 inches (which adheres to the "coanda effect"). The airflow then travels down the front of the air knife by turning 90 degrees. The combined and now amplified air flow turns into a uniform (laminar) sheet or air. This laminar sheet of air is further converted into reduced energy use, which cools off an application. (Check out our How it Works tab to view a diagram of the air knife process).
What types of Air Knives do we carry?
The Regular Air Knife performs at a 30:1 air amplification ratio that is less efficient that the Advanced Air Knife. Air consumption is ~3.4 SCFM per inch at 80 PSIG. (Made from aluminum or stainless steel metals.)
The Advanced Air Knife provides the best performance with a 40:1 air amplification ratio, making it the most efficient. Air consumption is ~2.9 SCFM per inch at 80 PSIG. (Made from aluminum or stainless steel metals.)
Which Air Knife is best for my application?
The Regular Air Knife is a good choice when a less expensive alternative is required. As you can see, it is louder and uses more compressed air than the Advanced Air Knife.
The Advanced Air Knife is normally the best choice due to very low noise levels and it uses less air than the Regular Air Knife at the same pressure.
