What Is The Gen4® Standard Ion Air Knife?
This ionizer uses our original Standard Air Knife to carry ions from a Gen4 Ionizing Bar to the charged surface - up to 20 feet (6.1m) away. Though not as efficient as our Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife (40:1 air amplification), the Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife (30:1 air amplification) still provides fast static decay and strong blowoff force for cleaning. Force can be adjusted from a “blast” to a “breeze”. The Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife is electrically powered, is shockless and has no moving parts.
Why The Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife?
Compressed air inlets are provided on each end of the Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife. For long spans, multiple Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knives can be mounted end-to-end. This produces an air gap at the connection end of about 2" (51mm). (If no air gap is desired, use the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife.) Special length Gen4 Ionizing Bars up to 119" (3.02m) are available for multiple air knife applications.
The Model 8218 18" (457mm) Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife System showers parts with static eliminating ions to prevent personnel shocks.
A Model 8212 12" (305mm) Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife System cleans metal frames prior to powder coating.
A Model 8103 3" (76mm) Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife removes dust from computer hard disks prior to assembly.
