That’s right folks, we’ve gone and done it again. When a customer calls for custom product because their environment calls for it or due to dimensional requirements, EXAIR has the ability and flexibility to meet those needs!
This time around it was a customer with specific material requirements due to their environment. I had a customer contact me recently that was using an aluminum Super Air Knife near a high voltage operation and was getting ground interference due to the aluminum air knife. They asked if it was possible to make them a custom knife out of PEEK plastic. After some light discussions about the form of the knife and what other materials are safe for their environment we settled on a 30% glass filled PEEK plastic for the knife, brass bolts and pipe plugs, with a PTFE shim installed. The form factor of the knife would follow the same shape as our PVDF Super Air Knives that are available from stock. The customer could not use PVDF due to high temperature and potential off-gassing in the process.
The results are shown below.
Whether you are looking for a one off product that is tailor made to your application or want to have a simple feature like hardware material changed in a stock EXAIR product that you are incorporating into thousands of machines, we have the solution for you.
