What Is The Super Air Knife?

super-air-knife-video-previewEXAIR's Super Air Knife is the latest generation of air knife that dramatically reduces compressed air usage and noise when compared to other blowoffs. The Super Air Knife offers a more efficient way to clean, dry or cool parts, webs or conveyors. It delivers a uniform sheet of laminar airflow across the entire length with hard-hitting force.

Noisy blowoffs become a whisper when replaced with the compact Super Air Knife. Even at high pressures of 80 PSIG (5.5 BAR), the sound level is surprisingly quiet at 69 dBA for most applications! Amplification ratios (entrained air to compressed air) of 40:1 are produced. The Super Air Knife meets OSHA dead-ended pressure and noise requirements.

Specials are available. Please contact Compressed Air Australia.

How the Super Air Knife Works

SAKFLNEW

Compressed air flows through an inlet (1) into the plenum chamber of the Super Air Knife. The flow is directed to a precise, slotted orifice. As the primary airflow exits the thin slotted nozzle (2), it follows a flat surface that directs the airflow in a perfectly straight line. This creates a uniform sheet of air across the entire length of the Super Air Knife. Velocity loss is minimized and force is maximised as the room air (3) is entrained into the primary airstream at a ratio of 40:1. The result is a well defined sheet of laminar airflow with hard-hitting force and minimal wind shear.


Smart Use Of Compressed Air

 

Almost every industrial facility has at least one compressor that is used for hundreds of different tools, equipment and operations. While most applications for compressed air present no real problems, some do. Improper use can translate into unnecessary energy costs, high noise levels and dangerous exposure of personnel to high pressure air.

Reduce Energy Costs

 

The best way to cut energy costs is through proper maintenance and use of the compressed air system. Leaks and dirty filters require maintenance on a regular basis. Energy savings can also be realized when replacing outdated motors and controls with high efficiency models that often pay for themselves in a short period of time. The most important factor to dramatically boost efficiency is proper use. The Super Air Knife uses only 1/3 of the compressed air of typical blowoffs used in cleaning, cooling and drying operations and can be instantly cycled on and off.

Reduce Noise Levels

 

High noise level is a common problem for many plants. Compressed air noise often exceeds OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) noise level exposure requirements, resulting in hearing loss to those working in close proximity. The sound level of the Super Air Knife is quiet at 69 dBA, even at high pressures of 80 PSIG (5.5 BAR). Using the Super Air Knife, it is possible to obtain hard-hitting force without the high noise.

OSHA Maximum Allowable Noise Exposure
Hours per day (constant noise) 8 7 4 3 2 1 0.5
Sound Level dBA 90 91 95 97 100 105 110

OSHA Standard 29 CFR-1910.95(a)

Eliminate Harmful Dead Ended Pressures

 

Air can be dangerous when the outlet pressure of a hole, hose or copper tube is higher then 30 PSIG (2 BAR). In the event the opening is blocked by a hand or other body part, air may enter the bloodstream through the skin, resulting in serious or fatal injury. The Super Air Knife has been engineered for safety and cannot be dead ended. It is safe to operate at higher pressures and meets OSHA standard 1910.242(b).

Replacement For Expensive, Noisy Blowers

 

Energy conscious plants might think a blower to be a better choice due to its slightly lower electrical consumption compared to a compressor. In reality, a blower is an expensive capital expenditure that requires frequent downtime and costly maintenance of bearings, belts and filters. Here are some important facts:

  • Filters must be replaced every one to three months.
  • Belts must be replaced every three to six months.
  • Blower bearings wear out quickly due to the motor that must turn at 17-20,000 RPM in order to generate effective airflows.
  • Poorly designed seals that allow dirt and moisture infiltration along with environments above 125°F (52°C) decrease bearing life.
  • Typical bearing replacement is at least once a year at a cost near $1000 U.S.
  • Many bearings can't be replaced in the field, resulting in downtime to send the assembly back to the manufacturer.

Blowers take up a lot of space and often produce sound levels that exceed OSHA noise level exposure requirements. Air volume and velocity are often difficult to control since mechanical adjustments are required.


Blowoff Comparison

 

There are a variety of ways to blow the water from the bottles shown in the photo, but which method is best? The following comparison of drilled pipe, flat air nozzles, a blower and the Super Air Knife proves that EXAIR has the best choice for your blowoff, cooling or drying application.

Our goal for each of the blowoff choices was to use the least amount of air possible to get the job done (lowest energy and noise level). Compressed air pressure required for each was 60 PSIG (4.1 BAR) which provided adequate velocity to blow the water off. The table below summarizes the overall performance. Since your actual part may have an odd configuration, holes or sharp edges, we took sound level measurements in free air (no impinging surface).

Compare These Blowoffs

ineffective drilled pipe

Drilled Pipe

This common blowoff is very inexpensive and easy to make. For this test, we used (2) drilled pipes, each with (25) 1/16" (1.6mm) diameter holes on 1/2" (13mm) centers. As shown in the test results below, the drilled pipe performed poorly. The initial cost of the drilled pipe is overshadowed by its high energy use. The holes are easily blocked and the noise level is excessive - both of which violate OSHA requirements. Velocity across the entire length was very inconsistent with spikes of air and numerous dead spots.

ineffective flat air nozzles

Flat Air Nozzles

As shown below, this inexpensive air nozzle was the worst performer. It is available in plastic, Aluminium and stainless steel from several manufacturers. The flat air nozzle provides some entrainment, but suffers from many of the same problems as the drilled pipe. Operating cost and noise level are both high. Some manufacturers offer flat air nozzles where the holes can be blocked - an OSHA violation. Velocity was inconsistent with spikes of air.

ineffective blower

Blower Air Knife

The blower proved to be an expensive, noisy option. As noted below, the purchase price is high. Operating cost was considerably lower than the drilled pipe and flat air nozzle, but was comparable to EXAIR's Super Air Knife. The large blower with its two 3" (76mm) diameter hoses requires significant mounting space compared to the others. Noise level was high at 90 dBA. There was no option for cycling it on and off to conserve energy like the other blowoffs. Costly bearing and filter maintenance along with downtime were also negative factors.

Exceptional EXAIR Super Air Knife

EXAIR Super Air Knife

The Super Air Knife did an exceptional job of removing the moisture on one pass due to the uniformity of the laminar airflow. The sound level was extremely low. For this application, energy use was slightly higher than the blower but can be less than the blower if cycling on and off is possible. Safe operation is not an issue since the Super Air Knife cannot be dead-ended. Maintenance costs are low since there are no moving parts to wear out.

Long Super Air Knives

air-knife-long-lsak 559wide-small

EXAIR has expanded Long Super Air Knives to include a maximum length of 108" (2743mm) and is now manufacturing all knives 60" (1524mm) and longer in one piece construction. New one piece construction ensures seamless airflow and eliminates coupling multiple short length air knives together. One piece construction decreases overall height by 1/2" making it better for tight spaces. Super Air Knives produce a laminar sheet of airflow to blow off, dry or cool wide surfaces up to 108" (2743mm) wide. They are ideal for use on wide parts, webs and conveyors.


Electronic Flow Control (EFC)

Electronic Flow Control (EFC)

EXAIR's EFC is an electronic flow control that dramatically reduces compressed air costs by turning off the compressed air when no part is present. This minimises compressed air use for blowoff, drying, cooling, conveying and static elimination operations. The EFC combines a photoelectric sensor with a timing control that limits compressed air use by turning it off when no part is present. Visit the EFC page for more information.


Shim Sets

 

The compressed air exhausts through a gap which is set with a shim positioned between the cap and the body of the Super Air Knife. Force and flow through the Super Air Knife may be easily increased by adding shims to open the gap. Kits include a shim set (three additional shims). Shim sets for Aluminium Super Air Knives include a .001" (0.03mm), .003" (0.08mm) and .004" (0.10mm) thick plastic shim. Shim sets for stainless steel Super Air Knives include (3) .002" (0.05mm) thick stainless steel shims.
