Standard Ion Air Knife Keeps Viewing Cover Clean

A manufacturer of high speed industrial machinery makes a sorting machine for seeds.  There’s a clear plastic cover for operators to see the seeds as they pass through the machine.  Many seeds are dense enough to move right on through, but some lower density seeds (canola, lettuce, and flax seed, specifically) bounce around a bit, and even the slight static charge that builds up as they move through causes them to cling to the inside of that viewing window.

This was a great fit for our Model 8406 6″ Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife Kit…”fit” being the operative word.  While the Super Ion Air Knives are more efficient and quieter, there simply wasn’t very much room at all for mounting inside, so the smaller profile of the Standard Ion Air Knife made all the difference in the world.  Also, since they just need static dissipation of such a small area, and not much flow at all is required to blow off these lightweight seeds, the differences in compressed air consumption and sound level were not very much at all.

Profile-wise, a Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife takes up less than half the space of a Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife.

For performance, efficiency, and dependability, look no further than EXAIR’s Gen4 Static Eliminator Products.  If you have a problem with static, we’ve got a solution.  Give me a call.
