Air Knife (Malaysia) and Drying System

Our Air Knife Systems are engineered, manufactured and tested to provide 99.9% of liquid, dust, and debris removal from products prior to labelling, ink jet laser coating, packaging, or other secondary operations using a high velocity, high impact air stream. 

Our Air knives are available in extruded aluminium or stainless steel with lengths from 2" to 196" with an adjustable gap for better air stream control. 

We offer nozzle knives for direct drying, air wipes to match your extrusion profile and wire, and food-grade air knives which are USDA and compliant. In-house engineering expertise allows us to provide a heat source for your high-temperature applications or cold air systems to cool the parts. 

Custom air knife designs are available to meet your exact needs. The breadth of our equipment allows us to engineer and manufacture the additional components needed to complete your system; including the Centrifugal Blower, butterfly valves to provide the appropriate pressure and air stream as needed, and air knife brackets, elbows, Y-branches, and manifolds. 

Air Knife Working Principle 
An air knife is a pressurized air plenum with a uniform continuous gap that pressurized air exits in a laminar flow pattern. The exiting air velocity creates an impact air velocity directly onto the surface of the product to shear away moisture or particulates without mechanical contact. This impact air velocity can range from a gentle breeze to greater than 40,000 feet per minute.

Our Air Knife Advantages 
  • Low energy consumption 
  • Dry, clean, oil-free air stream 
  • Filtered blower inlet to prevent particle contamination 
  • Safe, low pressure 
  • Increased production speeds and output for a quick payback 
  • Reduced sound levels when compared to compressed air nozzle or round tube design.
