Air knives from Vortec transform ordinary compressed air into a uniform sheet of amplified air that is said to be especially useful for blow-off of water and debris, static neutralizing and some high speed drying or cooling applications, are detailed in a video available at https://youtu.be/rROyMBfQKrM. This presentation shows how filtered compressed air is amplified 25 times over its input to deliver a high velocity sheet of laminar air over wide areas.

With no moving parts and no power source, Vortec air knives are inherently safe. Available in 3”, 6”, 9”, 12”, 18” and 24” lengths, these designs produce increased thrust and velocity, reduced noise, instant on/off, and uniformity. 

They require no maintenance and feature a 10-year warranty. Interchangeable shims enable the airflow to be adjusted per specific application requirements. According to the company, a single, ¼” NPT, compressed air inlet will feed up to a 12-inch length air knife, while two inlets are supplied on longer models. This operation meets OSHA noise specifications.
