Paxton Products explains its air knives and why they are better for drying your beer bottles and cans

As a native of Cincinnati, I am always happy to promote Xincheng Brewery and suppliers. For example, I am very happy to see Braxton Brewing Co. (located in Covington, Kentucky, larger than Cincinnati) teaming up with my favorite local pizzeria LaRosa's to launch LaRosa's Lager, a classic family recipe sauce with LaRosa The perfect match of specialty beer. I am very happy to be able to try it with a very large Buddy's Topper pie.

As we discussed the topic of Southern Ohio, Paxton Products in Cincinnati just released a great overview video explaining its various awesome sound-producing airflow devices. Wait, what is the relationship between airflow equipment and brewing beer? When it comes to craft brewing, Paxton’s ionized air washing and drying equipment has become critical to packaging during the pandemic.

These ionized air washer and drying equipment generate negative ions that attach to the positively charged particles (such as dust or pollen) on cans and bottles to help clean them. Paxton's ionized air flushing system uses powerful ionization and Paxton's centrifugal blower and air delivery system to remove particles, dust and contaminants. The ion bottle flusher does not need to use compressed air for water flushing and/or air flushing. The same thing: Paxton’s Ion Tank Flusher improves the sustainability of canning operations by eliminating the need to use compressed air for water flushing and/or air flushing.

For example, here is a cool case study. Octopi Brewing in Wisconsin has built a new can production line at its Wisconsin plant to move cans on a single-row plastic flat conveyor belt at a rate of 330 cans per minute. After filling and sealing, the can is rinsed and the remaining beer outside the can is removed with water. Octopi is concerned about the drying process. The joint area of ​​the tank needs to be completely dry, but the joint is a difficult place to dry, because the surface level of the tank and the tank lid are different, and the liquid is easily trapped. If there is residual liquid on the can, it will cause the can and the seam to oxidize. Another problem with Octopi is to remove all the liquid from the side of the jar. Once the can is rinsed, the outside of the can will be wet with the mixture of water and residual beer. To prevent sticky cans, they need to be completely dried before packaging. 

Octopi contacted Paxton Products to find a solution, not only to dry the cans and seams, but also to remove all remaining water and remaining beer before the cans are placed in the carton. The Paxton team determined that using the patent-pending CanDryer driven by a 10-horsepower PX-1000 ultra-efficient centrifugal blower can eliminate the wet tank problem for contract packers. Paxton’s CanDryer combines two air knife slots and six nozzles into a single manifold.

Sounds cool. Watch the video above to learn how to explain Paxton technology. Although air knives have been used to blow dry and dry various materials, including beer bottles and cans, recent innovations focus on going beyond air knives to achieve more targeted and efficient drying and blow drying. Watch the video below , To learn more about why the Paxton air knife design is more efficient than the old design, when to choose a nozzle, in-line or spyder manifold instead of an air knife, and when to choose a specific application design such as a hat dryer or a tank dryer. Not an air knife system.
