What Is the Standard Ion Air Knife?

EXAIR's Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife offers 30% improved performance at low pressures allowing you to achieve the same or better results, which saves compressed air, time and money. They are an effective way to eliminate static. Like its "super" counterpart, the Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife removes static electricity from plastics, webs, sheet stock and other surfaces where tearing, jamming or hazardous shocks are a problem.

This ioniser uses our original Standard Air Knife to carry ions from a Gen4 Ionizing Bar to the charged surface - up to 6.1m (20 feet)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.

When air consumption and noise level are not critical to the application, the lower cost makes the Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife a good choice. (To compare the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife and Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife, see the performance data on the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife page and the performance data for the Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife, below.)

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.

EXAIR Model 7960 or 7961 Gen4 Power Supply Is Required For Ioniser Operation
Selectable Voltage: For use with all Gen4 Static Eliminators

The Two and Four Outlet Gen4 Power Supplies have selectable voltage, which allows you to choose input voltages of 115VAC or 230VAC. The modular cable with electromagnetic shielding protects sensitive electronics against electromagnetic interference while easing connections and routing. An integrated fuse on the primary protects against voltage spikes.

Gen4 Two and Four Outlet Selectable Voltage Power Supplies require an input of 115VAC, 50/60 Hz or 230VAC, 50/60 Hz. A 1.83m (6-foot) modular power cord and lighted power switch are included. Power Supplies are UL Component Recognised to US and Canadian safety standards, and are CE and RoHS compliant.
Advantages:

  • Replaceable rocker switch
  • Durable, stainless steel high voltage connections
  • Selectable voltage 115VAC or 230VAC
  • Electromagnetically shielded modular power cable
  • Fuse protects against voltage spikes
  • Modular power supply cable eases connections and routing
ionairjet07
The Model 7960 and 7961 Gen4 Power Supplies have 115VAC or 230VAC selectable voltage, lighted power switch, integral fuse on the primary, electromagnetically shielded modular power cable. Model 7960 has (2) 5kV outlets; Model 7961 has (4) 5kV outlets.
