Applications for Air Blow Off

Air knives and air blow off systems have become an essential part of the production process due to the following influences:

  • Reduced solvent use in coatings, causing longer cure times.
  • Increased use of aqueous based coatings and washes.
  • Use of more environmentally friendly paints and coatings that do not dry as quickly.
  • Increased awareness of the cost of compressed air for dry-off.
  • The many disadvantages of compressed air for dry-off.
  • A demand for increased label information including point of production bar codes and date stamps.
  • Increased production line speeds, reducing drying time available.
  • Reduced noise potential.

Air blow off applications can be divided into the following classifications. To read more, choose your application:
