New Anti-Static Air Knife is CE, UL, RoHS Certified

Exair’s new Gen4 standard ion air knife
Exair’s new Gen4 standard ion air knife

Exair’s new Gen4 standard ion air knife eliminates static electricity 30% better at low inlet pressures that saves compressed air and money.

Production speeds, product quality, and surface cleanliness can improve dramatically. It eliminates static on plastics, webs, sheet stock, and other product surfaces where tearing, jamming, or hazardous shocks are a problem.

Gen4 products have undergone independent laboratory tests to certify they meet the rigorous safety, health and environmental standards of the U.S., European Union, and Canada that are required to attain the CE and UL marks. They are also RoHS compliant. New design features include a metal armored high-voltage cable to protect against abrasion and cuts, integrated ground connection, and electromagnetic shielding.

The Gen4 standard ion air knife incorporates Exair’s standard air knife that minimizes compressed air use by inducing surrounding airflow at a ratio of 30:1. The unique amplified airflow carries the ions to the target, making it possible to eliminate static charges in less than a half second. Air volume and velocity are infinitely controllable from a “breeze” to a “blast” to gently wipe or forcefully blow away debris.

The Gen4 standard ion air knife product line is available from stock in 3 to 48 in. long. The electrical ion source is shockless and there is no radioactive element. A new selectable voltage power supply has been designed to operate Gen4 products.
