Air Knives Deliver Flat Sheet of Amplified Air

Curtain Transvector Air Knives are air amplifiers, using a small amount of filtered compressed air to deliver a powerful, high velocity, laminar sheet of air over wide areas such as moving webs, film, sheets, strips, auto bodies and other large assemblies and objects. They are an excellent solution for high speed drying of wide surfaces, as well as industrial cooling. Vortec's patented design produces increased thrust and velocity, reduced noise and excellent uniformity.
