Secomak air knife solutions

Secomak air knives are designed for high velocity drying and thorough blow-off applications of surface moistures and debris. The air knife has a slot design that projects an uninterrupted sheet of controlled high velocity air across the length of the air knife, supplying a powerful flow of air across the entire surface of the product.

Secomak air knives are blower-driven solutions which require a reliable supply of low pressure air. Secomak have developed a unique range of HV Fans optimised a powerful combination with the Secomak. All Secomak drying systems contain the integrated air knife and centrifugal blower, offering a higher level of performance for de-watering, cleaning and cooling applications.

Secomak air knife systems can be used in replacement of the compressed air nozzles, which are costing consumers an extent of £20, 000 per annum in compressed air running costs. Switching to a blower-driven air knife system can reduce expenditure by up to 85% as well as increasing efficiency by up to 85%.

How to specify an air knife

To ensure the correct air knife and blower are provided contact Secomak directly on +44 (0)208 732 1300 or email your enquiry. 

Our technical sales team will establish the current situation and requirements to determine whether our air knife can integrate with existing equipment or a bespoke, tailored solution is required. It is important for us to fully understand the line speed, product/conveyor sizes, product proximity and the level of drying, cooling or cleaning required to be able to specify the correct air knife system. This information helps us to determine the size, position and number of air knives and blowers, and provide standard length of air knife, or turnkey systems tailored to your budget and requirements.
