The Universal Air Knife Mounting System is used to provide secure, precise positioning for any EXAIR Super Air Knife. The Air Knife can quickly and easily be moved within close proximity of the part to improve effectiveness. It can be mounted on either the top or bottom. The Universal Air Knife Mounting System has a durable, stainless steel construction that is suitable for a variety of industrial applications. It can be articulated into any position and provides a maximum extension of 30" (762mm). For any style air knife that is 24" (610mm) to 54" (1372mm) use (2) Universal Air Knife Mounting Systems. For knives 55" (1397mm) - 71" (1803mm) use (3). For 72" (1829mm) - 95" (2413mm) use (4). For knives 96" (2438mm) and over, use (5).
Super Air Knives that are 24" or longer must be supplied with compressed air at multiple inlets on the knife. The Air Knife Plumbing Kits prevent you from searching for the right fittings or using undersized air supply lines. They provide properly sized compressed air hose or pipe, and fittings to interconnect the bottom or end compressed air inlets for best performance. Plumbing kits for aluminum Super Air Knives include a pressure gauge to monitor pressure at the Super Air Knife, which is an indication of proper air supply. They also include nitrile/PVC hose and brass fittings. Plumbing kits for stainless steel Super Air Knives include cut to length type 316 stainless steel pipe and fittings and will also work on PVDF Super Air Knives.
Some applications require a Super Air Knife that is longer than our 108" (2743mm) length. Coupling Bracket Kits that join two Super Air Knives together are available. The kit includes two rigid plates along with the assembly screws. The bottom plate is supplied with a hole to access the bottom compressed air inlets. All models include stainless steel screws.
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 minimizes compressed air use for blow off, 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.
