EXAIR’s new 3/8in Super Air Wipe™ produces a 360° airstream that can blow off, dry, clean or cool the material passing through it. The split design can be clamped around continuously moving material such as wire, cable, pipe, hose and extruded shapes.
The 3/8in Super Air Wipe ejects a small amount of compressed air through a thin slotted nozzle that pulls in high volumes of surrounding room air. The airflow uniformly ejects from the 360° of its inner diameter. Coupling brackets that hold each half of the 3/8in Super Air Wipe together can be latched or removed quickly. Additional shims can be installed if more blowoff force is required. Air velocity can be varied with a pressure regulator and instant on/off control provides precision blowoff. Air consumption is 314 SLPM (11.1 SCFM) at 5.5 BAR (80 PSIG) and the sound level is low at only 82 dBA.
Available from Compressed Air Australia, Super Air Wipes are CE compliant. They are available in aluminium and stainless-steel in diameters from 3/8in (13mm) up to 4in (102mm). Large diameters up to 11in (279mm) are available in aluminium. Applications include wiping wire; drying inks; cooling hot extruded shapes; and, blowoff of water, plating, coatings and dust.
