Air Wipes

Why The Super Air Wipe™?
Prior to the introduction of the Super Air Wipe, the only way to blowoff, dry, clean and cool these 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. Velocity can be varied from a “blast” to a “breeze”. Air consumption and noise are low.

Super Air Wipe Is Easy To Use

There is a 1/4 NPT female inlet on each half of the Super Air Wipe on sizes up to 7" (178mm). Larger sizes include two 1/4 NPT female inlets on each half in order to maintain proper air volume and performance. Aluminum Super Air Wipes up to 4" (102mm) include a brass tee that supplies one half directly and a stainless steel wire braided coupling hose rated at 400° (204°C) to supply the other half.
The flanged end of an axle is lifted through a Super Air Wipe to blow off chips after machining.

Stainless steel Super Air Wipes up to 4" (102mm) include a stainless steel tee and a stainless steel wire braided coupling hose rated at 800° (427°C). Larger sizes should be piped directly.

Tapped holes on the downstream side are provided for permanent mounting if the Super Air Wipe is not held in place with rigid pipe.

Coupling brackets that hold each half of the Super Air Wipe together are provided which can be installed or removed quickly if required.

The Super Air Wipe eliminates the possibility of smoke during machining by wiping hydraulic oil from the bar stock as it enters the chuck.

Changing Performance By Adding Shims
The compressed air exhausts through a gap which is set with a shim positioned between the cap and the body of the Air Wipe.

The Super Air Wipe is shipped with a .002" (0.05mm) thick stainless steel shim installed which works best for most applications. Force and flow may be easily increased by adding shims to open the gap. Increasing the gap opening offers higher velocity and harder hitting force. Air consumption and noise will be slightly higher.

Super Air Wipe shim sets include two .002" (0.05mm) stainless steel shims that can be stacked. Shim sets are included with all kits or can be purchased separately.
The Standard Air Wipe is shipped with a .002" (0.05mm) thick plastic shim installed which works best for most applications. Force and flow may be easily increased by adding shims to open the gap. Increasing the gap opening offers higher velocity and harder hitting force. Air consumption and noise will be slightly higher. A Model 2431 Standard Air Wipe blows off the excess coating from a wire into a dip tank.
A Model 2431 1" (25mm) Standard Air Wipe blows off the excess coating from a wire into a dip tank.
Standard Air Wipe shim sets are available that include one each of a .001" (0.03mm), .003" (0.08mm) and .004" (0.10mm) thick shims. Shim sets are included with all kits or can be purchased separately.
