Super Ion Air Knife and Ion Air Cannon Keep Fuel Tanks Clean

Company manufactures fuel tanks. The customer assembles two halves of a molded fuel tank and welds them together as their process. The problem is that the plastic is charged with static and attracts a lot of debris onto the surfaces that needed to be welded. If even a hair was caught into the weld, the tank would be rejected. Out of 800,000 fuel tanks manufactured in 2006, the customer had 600 rejects. The customer is looking to reduce the scrap to 120 pcs. per year by using the Model 110024 24" (610mm) Super Air Knife, Model 112048 48" (1219mm) Super Ion Air Knife and Model 8192 Ion Air Cannon. This arrangement enabled an 80% reduction in scrap.
