Exair’s new 1/2″ Super Air Wipe™ available from Compressed Air Australia , produces a 360° airstream that can blowoff, 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 1/2″ 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 along 360° of its inner diameter.
Coupling brackets that hold each half of the 1/2″ Super Air Wipe can be latched together or removed quickly. Additional shims can be installed if more blowoff force is required.
Air velocity can be varied with instant on/off control. Air consumption is 13.9 SCFM at 80 PSIG and the sound level is low at only 75 dBA.
Super Air Wipes are available in aluminium and stainless steel in diameters from 1/2″ (13mm) up to 4″ (102mm). Large diameters up to 11″ (279mm) are available in aluminium.
Applications include wiping wire, drying inks, paint and screen printing, cooling hot extruded shapes as well as blowoff of water, plating, coatings and dust.
