Do you have a need to blow off a wide area? Do you like to save money on compressed air? Well, then I have a solution for you! EXAIR’s Super Air Knife is the BEST SOLUTION for all wide area blow off applications using compressed air. We have been manufacturing Air Knives for over 38 years and the Super Air Knife is the culmination of all that experience put into one design. The Super Air Knife was first released back in 1997 and it remains the most efficient knife on the market. We have seen copy-cat products and others that claim better performance, but testing proves otherwise. Super Air Knives remain the most efficient.
The Super Air Knife works by taking a small amount of compressed air to create a high velocity laminar sheet of air. This sheet of air then entrains (pulls in) the surrounding ambient air at a rate of 40:1 (40 parts ambient air to one part compressed air), making it very effective in a variety of cooling, drying, and blow off applications. The Super Air Knife also comes in the most variety of lengths ranging from 3″ all the way up to 108″. And in 4 different stock materials which are Aluminum, 303 Stainless Steel, 316 Stainless Steel, and PVDF. This allows the Super Air Knife to fit your specific needs. Like all of EXAIR’s product lines, these air knives meet or exceed OSHA standards for safety.
Starting in November through the end of the month, order any EXAIR Super Air Knife and receive a free 1210 Soft Grip Safety Air Gun. This applies to all stock Super Air Knifes. The Model 1210 is a top pick for many industrial applications. With the ideal combination of forceful air flow, quite noise level, and compressed air usage there’s not many applications that aren’t suited for this style of gun. All EXAIR’s Safety Air Guns are compliant with OSHA 1910.242 (b), relating to dead-end pressure, and can keep your personnel safe.

Last week, Plant Engineering presented EXAIR’s Long Super Air Knives the Bronze award for Product of the Year in the compressed air category. In 2014, EXAIR introduced one piece, seamless Long Super Air Knives up to 108″ in length. No other company in the world can provide a one piece compressed air operated air knife over 54″ long. This one piece design allows for minimal footprint for long units, and an unparalleled uniform sheet of laminar air flow. These long Super Air Knives conserve compressed air over drilled pipes or a manifold of air nozzles. Their compact design excels at large web drying and cleaning operations i.e. paper, rolled steel, aluminum foils, or plastic sheets. Air knives also excel at cooling extrusions, molds, heated rollers, or components. The air knives entrain ambient air at 40:1 ratio (40 parts ambient to 1 part compressed air) which means it moves a tremendous volume of air and delivers it to your target. The Super Air Knives provide all of these benefits quietly and efficiently. The air knife creates only 69 dBA of noise at 80 PSIG of pressure and it would be a great addition in areas where anyone is trying to limit harmful noise exposure to personnel.
These air knives continue EXAIR’s history of pushing the envelope in air knife technology. In 2010, EXAIR introduced the first polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) air knife to the market. The PVDF Super Air Knives provide resistance to UV light, inorganic chemicals, solvents, ozone, weather, fungi, chlorinated hydrocarbons, highly corrosive acids, weak bases and salts while maintaining a quiet operation (69 dBA). This material change opened EXAIR to a variety of environments that cannot be served by blowers, aluminum, or stainless steel air knives.
