Smart Air Knife Tunnel

The Sonic SMART (Sonic Modular AiR Tunnel) Air Knife Tunnels™ are available in a wide range of turn-key air knife drying systems for filled bottles or cans prior to inspection, coding, labeling or packaging at speeds of 100 to 1500 CPM. These systems are supplied with Sonic air blowers and Sonic blower enclosures and a complete line of Sonic SMART Tunnel™ options to suit each application and operating requirements.

Sonic's stainless steel blower enclosure is floor mounted separately from the SMART Air Knife Tunnel™ to provide customers with 100% flexibility in installation, location and easy access.
