How Air Knife Systems Work

Air Knives are often the most efficient and effective method of removing or controlling foreign substances for any surface.

Most Air Knives are stationary with products passing through them on a conveyor however there are also systems where the product is stationery and the Air Knives move around it.

Air Knife Systems came into widespread use following the historic Montreal Protocol.

They were, however, around for decades before this, drawing on pioneering work from both engineering and physics.
