What is an air knife?
An Air Knife is a custom designed air delivery device that precisely and evenly distributes air flow for maximum performance and efficiency. Combined with our direct drive blowers, our knives are a low-maintenance and reliable solution for your blow off needs.
For over 30 years, Air Force 1 Blow Off Systems Inc. has been designing and manufacturing systems using Air Knives, which are engineered in a wide range of lengths and profiles designed to deliver the appropriate air volume and velocities necessary to cool, dry, strip liquids, remove particulate matter, neutralize and control static.
Our designs deliver an efficient laminar flow of blower generated air through an adjustable full-length slot orifice. They are constructed of corrosion resistant, anodized, extruded aluminum or stainless steel, with powder coated flanged ends complete with stainless steel laser cut support collars and U-bolt hardware to easily mount to adjustable pipe clamps. Standard lengths range from 6″ to 120″ with specific custom lengths being available.
We engineer and manufacture our Air Knives to match the requirements of your specific application, allowing us to design a blow off system for nearly any product, from car bodies to small components. Some processes and part designs may require a combination of both knives and Air Cannon Nozzles. Both may be set up in a fixed (manually adjustable) position or set in motion by means of pneumatic, hydraulic or electric controls.
