At a powerful 40:1 air amplification ratio, the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife floods an area or surface with static eliminating ions - up to 20 feet (6.1m) away. Uniform airflow across its length prevents misalignments to critical surfaces such as webs. The Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife is electrically powered, is shockless and has no moving parts. It also requires only 3.7 SCFM of compressed air per foot of length at 5 PSIG (105 SLPM per 300mm of length at 0.3 BAR)

How the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife Works

How the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife Works

Compressed air flows through an inlet into the plenum chamber of the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife. The flow is directed to a precise, slotted orifice. As the primary airflow exits, it creates a uniform sheet of air across the entire length that immediately pulls in surrounding room air . An electrically powered Gen4 Ionizing Bar fills the curtain of air with positive and negative charges. The airstream delivers these static eliminating ions to the product surface where it instantly neutralizes static and cleans off dust and other particulates.

Gen4™ Super Ion Air Wipe™

EXAIR's Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe

Ring of ionized airflow clamps around the part!
Neutralizes and cleans continuous moving surfaces!

The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe provides total coverage of the part moving through it. It produces a high volume, high velocity charged airflow that attaches itself to the surface of the production part and wipes it down with static eliminating ions. The laminar airflow stays attached to the surface and is effective far away from where the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe is mounted. Using an optional pressure regulator provides infinite control of the air volume and velocity, allowing optimal coverage of the production piece.

Until now, there has been no easy way to provide uniform coverage around a continuously moving part. It is very difficult to line up and feed continuously moving materials (such as wire, tubing or extrusions) through a solid blowoff ring. Arranging a series of ionizers around the surface would provide uneven airflow and prove to be costly. The split design of the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe solves that problem by making it easy to clamp around the surface of the material moving through it, eliminating the need for threading or the positioning of several linear ionizers.

How the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe Works

How the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe Works

The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe incorporates a Super Air Wipe and a split ionizing collar, energized by a power supply. Compressed air is ejected through the small ring nozzle of the Super Air Wipe at high velocity . A conical 360° ring of air is created that induces high volumes of surrounding air . The airflow passes through the collar and is ionized by two replaceable emitter points . That high velocity, ionized airstream attaches itself to the surface of the material running through the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe , uniformly eliminating the static electricity and removing any contaminants from the surface.

Gen4™ Ion Air Cannon™

Quiet, efficient, concentrated flow of ionized air
removes static and dust!

EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m) with no moving parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. With an optional pressure regulator, the air volume and velocity are infinitely adjustable over a wide range, for light to heavy duty applications.

A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume flow of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionized by an emitter point (shockless) and delivered to the charged surface. It requires only 10 PSIG (0.7 BAR) for most applications. The compact design saves bench space and can be permanently mounted.

How the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon Works

The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon incorporates a Super Air Amplifier™ and ionizing collar, energized by a power supply. A small amount of compressed air is injected into the barrel of the cannon inducing a high volume flow of surrounding air to flow through it .

A replaceable emitter point (shockless) at the discharge end of the cannon ionizes the entire airstream. The result is a high volume, conical flow of ionized air capable of eliminating static and cleaning at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m). Because more than 90% of the ionized air is induced, the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon produces maximum airflow at minimum air consumption.

How the Gen4 Ion Air Jet Works

The Gen4 Ion Air Jet incorporates a High Velocity Air Jet and electrically energized emitter point. A small amount of compressed air is injected into the air jet inducing a high volume flow of surrounding air to pass through it.

The emitter point (shockless) at the discharge end of the Air Jet ionizes the entire airstream. The result is a high volume flow of ionized air capable of neutralizing high static charges in fractions of a second. An optional filter and regulator clean the compressed air and allow infinite adjustment of airflow and velocity.
