|Sonic’s Engineered Air Knife Systems
are providing alternatives for a host of maintenance intensive
methods, needed for continuous coating control, that have been
used throughout industry for decades. With our precise, fully
adjustable, non-contact, Sonic Air Knife Systems, manufacturers
are achieving optimum coating thickness and at higher speeds
than ever before for conveyor widths of 1” to 192”
(2.5 cm to 487 cm) and almost any coating liquid viscosity.
||Eliminating squeegee rolls and scraper blades
are the most common application for Sonic. You will no longer
have the maintenance costs associated with cleaning, adjusting
and/or replacing the rollers and scrapers. A significant benefit
is that a Sonic Air Knife System delivers clean, dry, oil/dirt
free air at higher than ambient temperatures to further improve
the coated product and accelerate the coating drying process
Replace compressed air or other low efficiency
blowers connected to air knife designs that are not
ideally suited for effective coating control applications
and simply cost far too much to operate. A typical 48”
wide (122 cm) coated product could require up to 40 hp(30kW) of
compressed air to do what a Sonic 10 hp (7.5kW) blower will do. Compressed
air also has high costs associated with the after coolers,
dryers and extra filtration.
Sonic guarantees the air knife system we design for your coating
control process will deliver the exact coating thickness,
at the speed you want to operate.
