Air knives from Vortec transform ordinary compressed air into a uniform sheet of amplified air that is ideal for blow-off of water and debris, high speed drying or cooling, air curtains, and more. Filtered compressed air flow is amplified 25 × over its input, to deliver a high velocity sheet of laminar air over wide areas. This design produces increased thrust and velocity, reduced noise, instant on/off, and excellent uniformity, the company says. 

Using only filtered compressed air, these air knives do not require power and have no moving parts, so they are inherently safe. They require no maintenance and feature a 10-year warranty. Interchangeable shims enable the airflow to be adjusted per specific application requirements. They are available in 3”, 6”, 12”, 18” and 24” lengths to suit any application. A single, ¼” NPT, compressed air inlet will feed up to a 12” length, two inlets supplied on longer models. Its quiet operation meets OSHA noise specifications.
