Super Ion Air Knife Eliminates Static On Medical Parts Conveyor Line
This customer makes medical devices. As their parts move down a conveyor on plastic trays, a static charge is generated, which causes debris to cling to the parts. This debris is unacceptable, and must be removed prior to packaging. To solve this problem, they installed a Model 112224 24" (610mm) Super Ion Air Knife Kit that blows the trays off as they come down the conveyor belt, just before they go into packaging. The laminar sheet of air ensures that the cavities in the tray get blown out, and the Pressure Regulator allowed them to set the flow rate low enough so they are not lifted or stalled as they move down the conveyor line.
