Reasons To Invest in Air Knives

Here at Airtec, we recognise that many industrial processes are often carried out in accordance with strict health and safety guidelines whilst simultaneously trying to ensure that deadlines are met. This means that even the smallest hiccup in the ventilation and humidity of a factory floor can lead to devastating setbacks. An air knife is a versatile tool that can be used in order to control moisture and remove unwanted debris. Read on as we go over three reasons why they are a sensible investment for any industrial working environment…

Energy Efficiency

In order to see the best return on investment, compressed air technology must be operational at all times. After all, there is very little point in treating certain products whilst simultaneously neglecting others. With this said, this machinery can be rather expensive for the average business owner which is why customer satisfaction plays a big role in how we design our air knives. By offering up to 90% savings on running costs, businesses can save money with air knife technology whilst obtaining the most effective output.

Industrial Suitability

An air knife is a specialist piece of machinery and can be utilised in a wide range of different industries such as industrial engineering, food processing, conveying, packaging and metal/textile production. This means they are an excellent investment and guarantee optimum quality when assessing the final product. In fact, many fresh fruit and vegetables are treated using air knife technology because the highly controlled air flow can remove surface moisture and dust with ease.

Increased Productivity

When it comes to industrial operations, time is of the essence as deadlines have to be met accordingly without sacrificing the quality of the final product. Air knife technology reduces the amount of time that is spent removing moisture and debris from the surface of materials and allows staff to focus on the other tasks at hand. This results in a more productive team and happier working environment.

The market will often give industrial companies, particularly those that work within food processing, the option to invest in alternative air compression solutions like air nozzles, however these are usually temperamental and often fail to provide the same level of high-quality finish that air knives deliver. After all, an air knife is sleek and small enough for installation directly on the factory floor. To find out more information, get in contact with a member of the Airtec team today!
