EXAIR's Super Air Wipe, with stainless steel hardware and shims, provides a uniform 360° airstream that is ideal for blowoff, drying, cleaning and cooling of pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose, wire and more. Models up to 4" diameter include stainless steel braided hose which feeds both halves from one compressed air inlet. The split design offers easy clamping around the surface of the material moving through it, eliminating the need for threading. Available from stock in diameters from 3/8" to 11" and made from aluminum or type 303 stainless steel. Custom sizes and materials are available.

Materials

Aluminum - The aluminum Super Air Wipe is suited to a wide variety of environments where corrosion or contamination is not a factor. The aircraft grade aluminum construction with stainless steel shim is very durable for general purpose applications. Stainless steel screws are used to eliminate corrosion in damp locations. It can withstand temperatures up to 400°F (204°C).

Type 303 Stainless Steel - This is the most common grade of stainless steel. It offers good strength and is best suited to mildly corrosive environments. It can withstand temperatures up to 800°F (427°C).

Accessories

Super Air Wipe Shim Sets

Super Air Wipe Shim Sets - The compressed air exhausts through a gap which is set with a shim positioned between the cap and the body of the Super 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.

Super Air Wipe Systems

Super Air Wipes are available in two different model types:

  • Super Air Wipe Only
  • Super Air Wipe Kits - includes a Super Air Wipe, shim set, filter separator and pressure regulator (with coupler).
  • Super Air Wipe Shim Sets - include (2) .002" (0.05mm) thick stainless steel shims.

Super Air Wipe Specifications

Super Air Wipes are available with eleven different throat diameters (I.D.):

3/8", 1/2", 1", 2", 3", 4", 5", 6", 7", 9" and 11" (10, 13, 25, 51, 76, 102, 127, 152, 178, 229 and 279mm). Special diameters are available. Please contact our factory.

Compressed Air Inlets: The Super Air Wipe has compressed air inlets on each half. Stainless steel wire braided hose is supplied with sizes up to 4" (102mm) that couples the air supply of one half to the other. Sizes 9" (229mm) and larger have two inlets on each half that must be supplied with compressed air to maintain uniform airflow.

Filtration: The use of clean air is essential. Kits include an automatic drain filter separator with a 5 micron filter element that is sized properly for flow.

Materials of Construction: The Super Air Wipe is constructed of aluminum or stainless steel. All models use stainless steel shims and screws. Stainless steel wire braided hose is included with sizes up to 4" (102mm).

Temperature: Aluminum Super Air Wipes are rated for temperatures up to 400°F (204°C). Stainless steel models are rated for temperatures to 800°F (427°C).

Mounting: The Super Air Wipe can be supported by the compressed air supply pipe. Tapped holes (1/4-20) on the downstream side of the Super Air Wipe can also be used for mounting.

Regulation: A pressure regulator on the compressed air supply provides infinite control of flow, force and air consumption. Kits include a pressure regulator that is sized properly for flow.

Shim Sets: The Super Air Wipe has a .002" (0.05mm) gap setting. The compressed air exhausts through a gap which is set with a stainless steel shim positioned between the cap and body of the Super Air Wipe. Force and flow through the Super Air Wipe may be easily increased by adding shims to open the gap. Kits include a shim set. Shim sets include (2) .002" (0.05mm) thick stainless steel shims.

How the Super Air Wipe Works

How the Super Air Wipe Works

Compressed air flows through an inlet (1) of the Air Wipe into an annular chamber (2). It is then throttled through a small ring nozzle (3) at high velocity. This primary airstream adheres to the Coanda profile (4), which directs it down the angled surface of the Air Wipe. A low pressure area is created at the center (5) inducing a high volume flow of surrounding air into the primary airstream. As the airflow leaves the Air Wipe, it creates a conical 360° ring of air that attaches itself to the surface of the material running through it (6), uniformly wiping the entire surface with the high velocity airflow.
