I had the pleasure of working through an application in which uncooked hamburger buns are processed and baked. In the application, dough patties travel along a conveyor into an oven and a small, targeted blow off (technical term: “fluff”) is needed to remove excess flour.
When the flour is blown off of the dough, it is extracted by a system mounted above the conveyor. The difficulty for this end user was in finding a reliable, laminar solution with consistent blow off force.
Enter the EXAIR Super Air Knife.
By installing an EXAIR Super Air Knife (in the appropriate material), the uneven and inefficient blow off that was originally installed was replaced with a reliable and quiet solution. We were able to take a problematic application and turn it into a repeatable process. And, we were able to repeat success in another similar application at another point in the same facility.
If you have an application in which repeatable, reliable, efficient solutions are needed, contact an EXAIR Application Engineer.
