The new 3/8″ Super Air Wipe from EXAIR (Cincinnati, OH) 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 3/8″ 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. Features include the following:
- Coupling brackets that hold each half of the 3/8″ Super Air Wipe together and can be latched together or removed quickly.
- Additional shims that 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 of 11.1 SCFM at 80 PSIG and the sound level is low at only 82 dBA.
- CE compliance, and availability from stock in aluminum and stainless steel in diameters from 3/8″ (13mm) up to 4″ (102mm).
Large diameters up to 11″ (279mm) are available from stock in aluminum. Applications include wiping wire; drying inks; cooling hot extruded shapes; and blowoff of water, plating, coatings and dust.
