The 5500 is a high performance, fan-driven ionised air knife system for static neutralisation and cleaning of mouldings, glass, automobiles and other large objects.

Fan driven air knives for industrial cleaning and neutralisation

Economical performance for larger and continuously running applications

Fast investment payback compared to compressed air systems

Payback typically within 6 months

Range of applications

Cleaning automobiles before painting, 3D mouldings and flat panels

High performance 5500 Ionised Air Knife Systems are designed to remove dust contamination and eliminate static from automotive mouldings, sheets of glass, automobiles and other large objects.

The blower produces a high volume of air which exits from the air knife in a fast laminar flow.  Powerful ionisation kills the static charge holding the dust, allowing the beam of laminar air to remove it.

  • AC or 24 V DC ionisation technology with up to 11 kV of ionising power
  • Suitable for the most demanding cleaning and neutralisation applications
  • Systems are engineered using the best blowers, pipework and ionised air knives to meet the customer’s requirement
  • Running costs typically 70 % less than compressed air alternatives
  • Cleaning with more depth and range than compressed air systems

5500 Air Knife Systems provide better blowers, better ionisation and better performance per kilowatt of power.

Options

  • 1250-S AC as standard or 24 V DC Static Eliminator
  • ATEX EX version – see EX-1250 EX Static Eliminator
  • UL (US and C) Listing is a free of charge option for the 1250-S and EX-1250 Static Eliminator Bars

The best choice of product depends upon process speed, the distance of the static eliminator from the target and the level of static charge to be neutralised. Please get in touch for further assistance.

Construction

Air Knife: aluminium.
1250-S Static Eliminator Bar (see separate Datasheet).

Dimensions

Compact and Standard options available.
