Gen4® Standard Ion Air Knife

A sheet of ionized air is an effective way to eliminate static and clean parts or materials!

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 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 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?

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.
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.
