316SS Super Air Knife Fluffs Up Nanofiber Material In Highly Aggressive Environment

This nanofiber manufacturer needed a way to "fluff up" a fibrous web of their material. When it exited the last proprietary process, it was (necessarily) flattened, but they needed to expand it into a low density, but consistent mass. The product moves along a mesh belt conveyor, so they installed a Model 110218SS-316 18" (457mm) 316SS Super Air Knife Kit. The durable, corrosion resistant 316 Grade Stainless Steel is necessary due to the heat and aggressive chemical exposure. The infinitely adjustable laminar curtain of air, blowing up through the open mesh of the belt, provides the perfect amount of "fluffiness" for the product.
