Static control airknife systems are custom designed to provide superior heavy-duty surface cleaning. They perform like compressed air knives, but use a blower instead of compressed air, reducing operating costs by 30% to 70%. Combined with anti-static bars, blower driven airknives becomes a powerful tool for removing dust and dirt from flat or contoured surfaces like car bodies and bumpers prior to painting.
The airknife is constructed of extruded aluminium with incorporated mounting grooves. This design provides a precise air volume over the entire width of the airknife. In the airkife tube a high air pressure appears and is flowing out of the airknife narrow outflow opening. The anti-static bar produces positive and negative ions which are blown onto the surface by the airknife.
A Typhoon system consists of a blower with one or several air knives and tubes. Each system will be tailored specifically for a customers application. A checklist can be completed by the customer with all specific data. If needed Simco-Ion can supply a trial system so the customer can determine the air pressure (blow off force) needed to eliminate static charges and or removing impurities.
