EXAIR manufactures special Super Air Knives suited to specific application requirements. The shape, dimensions and materials of construction can be modified to fit existing machines and environments.
|The special Super Air Knife (shown at right) is manufactured of stainless steel and has a slightly curved shape. This "curved" Super Air Knife was manufactured for a laboratory who used the force of the airflow to hold test tubes in place on a rotating index table. The table had no clips or latches to hold the test tubes in place. This made it easy for the technician to remove the test tube from the holding slot without manipulating a mechanical latch. It saved time, minimized risk of tube breakage and eliminated any chance of puncturing the technician's rubber gloves.

|EXAIR manufactures special Super Air Knives made of plastic. These products are engineered to work under normal operating pressures, providing the same performance as their aluminum and stainless steel counterparts. The PVC Super Air Knife (shown at right) was manufactured for a picture tube plant. The softer material was less likely to scratch the tubes surface and was chemically resistant to the phosphorus which coated the inside surface.

|The flat Super Air Knife (shown at right) is used in a molding machine for integrated circuit chips. Prior to molding the black plastic shells around the silicon wafers, they blow the mold cavity clean of any fine plastic fibers left by the previous cycle. The flat design constructed of corrosion resistant stainless steel was made to fit the tight space of the molding machine.

|The double-sided Super Air Knife (shown at right) provides two uniform sheets of air in opposite directions. It is ideal for blowing water from two or more columns of stacked parts (like printed circuit boards) as they are lifted out of a bath or the open halves of a mold. Each side operates independently.
