Blowoff, dry, clean and cool pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose, and wire!

EXAIR's Adjustable Spot Cooler
More Info

EXAIR’s Super Air Wipe provides a uniform 360° airstream that is ideal for blowoff, drying, cleaning and cooling of pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose, wire and more. The split design offers easy clamping around the surface of the material moving through it, eliminating the need for threading. All models include stainless steel screws and shims. Stainless steel wire braided hose is also included on sizes up to 4" (102mm) for added corrosion and heat resistance. Aluminum models are rated for temperatures up to 400°F (204°C) and stainless steel models for temperatures up to 800°F (427°C).

Prior to the introduction of the Super Air Wipe, the only way to blowoff, dry, clean and cool cylindrical, round, or extruded surfaces was to use a ring of air nozzles. The high air consumption and noise levels of the nozzles along with inconsistent air velocity often delivered poor results. The Super Air Wipe provides a high volume, high velocity airflow that is uniformly ejected from the 360° of its inner diameter. The airstream attaches itself to the material running through it to effectively wipe, clean or dry surfaces. Velocity can be varied from a “blast” to a “breeze”. Air consumption and noise are low.

Applications

  • Drying after wash, cleaning, plating or coating
  • Blowoff dust and contaminants
  • Cool hot extruded shapes
  • Uniformly wipe surfaces
  • Dry extruded profiles, rod and medical tubing
  • Eliminate solution carry - no cross contamination
  • Blow excess water from automotive door gaskets
  • Remove excess coatings, water and oil
  • Dry tube, hose, wire, fiber optics
  • Minimize solution loss due to dragout
  • Clean paint gun tips
  • Dry screen printed or ink jetted surfaces
  • Clean strips and ribbon

EXAIR Adjustable Spot Coolers

The Problem: A manufacturer of aluminum rods was having problems cutting the bar to length. The extrusion process left drawing die lubricant on the bar, causing it to slip in grippers that were holding it in position for cutting. A significant number of bars were being cut too short.

The Solution: Prior to cutting, the manufacturer passed the bar through a Model 2402 2" (51mm) Super Air Wipe which effectively removed the lubricant, and eliminated grip slippage.

Comment: The Super Air Wipe paid for itself in no time as a result of the decreased wastage.
