Air Knife Blow-Off Systems from Nex Flow
Air Knife Blow Off System from Nex Flow are easy to mount and maintain and reduces both compressed air consumption and noise levels.
The Stainless Steel Air-Blade Air Knife Blow Off System from Nex Flow produces a laminar flow of air along its length using the Coanda effect which entrains a large volume of air from the surrounding area along with the small amount of compressed air from the Air-Blade to produce an output flow up to 30 times.
Air Knife Blow Off System payback on compressed air savings can be as soon as a few weeks in some applications.
Nex Flow Mounting Systems for air knives and air amplifiers provide a convenient and flexible way to utilize the products for blow-off and cooling applications.

Standard Air Blade Air Knife How It Works
Compressed air enters the air knife at the rear (or end) ports at (A). Air is entrained at point (B) by the compressed air stream that leaves the air knife from a small gap. The entrained air follows the coanda profile and along the front face (C) that directs the airflow in a perfect straight line at 90 degrees to create a uniform sheet of air along the entire length of the Air Blade TM air knife at it leaves the air knife at point (D). The amplified air stream maximized velocity and force is maximized as a well-defined sheet of laminar flow with minimal wind shear for reduced energy use in blow off and cooling.
Air Knife, Stainless Steel Air Knife, Air-Blade Air Knife Blow Off System from Nex Flow produces a curtain of air along the length of the application using the same "Coanda" effect utilized in our Air Amplifiers. There are no moving parts, with compressed air from a local production line source being used to amplify end entrain surrounding air. Output volumes almost twenty times higher than those at the input can be achieved.
Offered in aluminum or stainless steel and can be manufactured in any length from a combination of our standard sizes.
Standard Air Blade Air Knife Features
Unlike some competitive products that advertise a full flow air knife type system, our low cost air knives are rugged with a multiple port design for flexibility in mounting and coated for longer life.
Typical applications replace drilled pipe, or rows of nozzles used for blow-off, cleaning, drying or cooling.
