Applications

Send moisture packing from almost anything!

The list is substantial... and growing. You can send moisture packing from almost anything. From poultry to printed circuits boards and printing plates. From cans, car batteries, castings and carbon rods. From extruded metal to engine blocks.

The raw power of a Paxton Air Knife will even remove swarf from metal components. In gentler vein, you can achieve delicate control of zinc coating on a hot dip steel sheet. Of glue spreading on ready pasted wallpaper. Or of batter spreading on fish and other food stuffs.

The Cutting Edge of Process Productivity

High Performance Air Knife Systems

We have designed drying and cleaning systems for virtually every type of industrial air-knife application; for almost every major industry.

SolvAir is the European Sales and Service Centre for Paxton Products who have been a leading pioneer in Air Knives and high-flow Centrifugal Blower development since the 1950’s. Our experience has led to our expertise in the design of efficient and effective Air Knife Drying Systems. As Air Flow Systems experts, we have refined today’s Air Knife designs for “precision drying”, including coating control, air curtains, removing dust and unwanted materials, as well as many other valuable drying applications.

Air Knife Systems use a precision-engineered linear slot to direct and utilise high velocity air from a centrifugal blower to:

  • Dry and remove liquid films from surfaces
  • Control surface coating
  • Blow off dust and debris
  • Convey, hold down or cushion materials with air
  • Cool/heat materials
  • Provide air curtain/barrier
  • Neutralise static charges

How Air Knives Work

Air Knives are simple and highly efficient systems for drying and cleaning products. An Air Knife System uses a high intensity, uniform sheet of air which is used to effectively:

  • Remove liquids
  • Control the thickness of 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
