The Super Air Knife also has a series of 1/4″-20 tapped holes, 2″ apart, along the bottom of the body. These are often used for installation & mounting as well, and we’ve seen some creative methods, for sure:
EXAIR Super Air Knives come in lengths from 3 inches to 9 feet long. We stock them in aluminum, 303SS, 316SS, and PVDF. If you need a custom length or material, though, we do those too. We can even talk about the best way to mount it. Call me.

This video showcases just how easy it is to install a Super Air Wipe or a Standard Air Wipe onto an extrusion line. The split ring design makes it possible to install or remove from the line without having to thread the product, all within a minute or less.

The EXAIRSuper Air Knife is the most efficient compressed air knife on the market. We know this because we’ve tested them, and our competitors’ offerings, for performance, using the same instruments, controls, and procedures. We’re not going to publish data that we can’t back up, and that’s a fact.
They’re also ideally suited to a wide variety of applications – they come in lengths from 3 inches to 9 feet long (and can actually be coupled together for uninterrupted air flows of even longer lengths,) a variety of materials for just about any environment. But the best thing about our Super Air Knives is how you can adjust the air pressure and flow to complete a wide variety of tasks. You can adjust them in two different ways, Replacing or adding Shims, or regulating the incoming air pressure.
Changing out your shim!
A larger shim gap will give you higher flow and force from your Air Knife. Honestly, the 0.002″ shim that comes pre-installed in all of our Air Knives is perfectly suitable for most blow off applications, and appropriate air supply conditions are the first thing you should check for before going with thicker shims, but if you do indeed need a boost, a thicker shim will indeed give you one…here’s a blog with the video to show you how it’s done:
Another advantage to having a Pressure Regulator at every point of use is the flexibility of making pressure adjustments to quickly change to varying production requirements. Not every application will require a strong blast sometimes a gentle breeze will accomplish the task. As an example one user of the EXAIR Super Air Knife employs it as an air curtain to prevent product contamination (strong blast) and another to dry different size parts (gentle breeze) coming down their conveyor. For Performance at different supply pressures see the chart below.
EXAIR products are highly engineered and are so efficient that they can be operated at lower pressures and still provide exceptional performance! This save’s you money considering compressed air on the average cost’s .25 cents per 1000 SCFM.

With the Gen4 Static Eliminators, EXAIR has added some great features and upgrades. In this video, I will show you how to replace the power rocker switch for the model 7960 and 7961 Power Supplies. Watch how to do it here:
EXAIR’s Air Wipes provide a 360° uniform, high velocity airflow that adheres to the outside surface of a round part, such as pipe, hose, cable, etc., as it passes through the throat or center of the device.
In this short video, we show how to change the shim inside of an Air Wipe, letting you achieve an increase or decrease in outlet flow and force while maintaining the same operating pressure.
