Super Ion Air knife removes static electricity from plastics, webs, sheet stock, and other product surfaces where dust, tearing, jamming, or hazardous shocks are a problem. The knife also provides a sheet of air to sweep surfaces clean of particles, dust, and dirt. The knife produces a laminar sheet of airflow that floods an area or surface with static-eliminating ions. The balanced airflow across its length is uniform and will not cause misalignments to critical surfaces such as webs.
