Super Air Knife Replaces Loud, Inefficient Blower System

This customer operates a conveyor to process sawdust and wood chips. Dust would fall off the sides of the conveyor and build up, causing belt tracking issues. They installed a 3" diameter drilled pipe, fed by a blower, running along side the conveyor, and this was marginally effective, but consumed a high amount of air, and was very loud. When the blower motor seized, they contacted EXAIR, hoping to replace this entire system with a compressed air product. A Model 110054 54" (1372mm) Super Air Knife was installed alongside the conveyor. This proved to be an effective, efficient, and quieter alternative to the blower-fed drilled pipe.
