Benefits of Air Knife Drying System

Benefits of Air Knife Drying System
Savings in Energy Costs- Up to 90% possible when compared to compressed air costs. The use of compressed air for blow-off nozzles is the most inefficient process. Up to 90 % Pressure loss occurs when compressed air is supplied to blow off nozzles, which means that there is a huge energy loss
A high volume production line using 40 Hp worth of compressed air for water blow-off can be replaced by a 10 Hp drying system with better drying quality. This 30 Hp of energy savings is exclusive of the cost to run the refrigerated air dryers, oil separators and maintenance of the entire compressed air system
Clean, Oil free & Dry air- Air filtered blower inlets prevent particle contamination
Constant Pressure System- These systems supply air at a constant pressure, which gives a consistent and guaranteed drying quality
Use Of Natural Heat of Compression- There is a rise in temperature of @ 8 to 100C due to addition of natural heat of compression which helps improve the drying process.
Safety- Generates less than 0.25 Bar Pressure
Rapid start up- The air knife system can be operational within seconds
Rapid drying- Increase in Process line speeds results increase in Productivity
Flexibility- One blower can service several process lines. Where the lines will not be required to operate simultaneously, the blower size can be correspondingly reduced
Less Cost of Maintenance- Apart from the blower there are no moving parts. Maintenance is Minimum
Low Capital Cost with faster pay back period
Compact Design and Simple to Install- Saving in space upto 90% and this system can be easily adapted to the existing conveyor line.
Easy Adaptability- To wide applications and production rates with lowest power
Better product quality- Precise and Repeatable action
Effective drying of complex shapes
