The Standard Air Wipe Kit is a good choice when the added durability of stainless steel screws, shims and hose are not required. The kit includes a Standard Air Wipe, shim set, filter separator and pressure regulator with coupler). EXAIR's Standard Air Wipe provides a uniform 360° airstream that is ideal for blowoff, drying, cleaning and cooling of pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose and more. The split design offers easy clamping around the surface of the material moving through it, eliminating the need for threading.

  • Cool hot extruded shapes
  • Uniformly wipe surfaces
  • Dry extruded profiles, rod and medical tubing
  • Eliminate solution carryover - 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 drag-out
  • Clean paint gun tips
  • Dry screen printed or ink jetted surfaces
  • Clean strips and ribbon

Advantages

  • Quiet
  • Low air consumption
  • Uniform 360° airflow
  • Uniform airflow across the entire diameter
  • Aluminum models for temperatures up to 150°F (66°C)
  • No electricity, no moving parts
  • Non-contact - no wiper blade
  • Split design - compact, rugged, easy to install
  • Lightweight, low profile
  • Tapped holes for mounting
  • Variable force and flow
  • Meets OSHA maximum dead end pressure and noise requirements

Materials

Aluminum - The Standard Air Wipe uses coated screws, plastic shims and a general purpose PVC coupling air hose on sizes up to 4" (102mm). The Standard Air Wipe is best suited to applications in non-corrosive environments where temperatures do not exceed 150°F (66°C).

Standard Air Wipes are available in two different model types:

  • Standard Air Wipe Only
  • Standard Air Wipe Kits - includes a Standard Air Wipe, shim set, filter separator and pressure regulator (with coupler).
  • Standard Air Wipe Shim Sets - include (2) each of a .001" (0.03mm), .003" (0.08mm) and .004" (0.10mm) thick plastic shim.

Standard Air Wipe Specifications

Standard Air Wipes are available with ten different throat diameters (I.D.):

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

Compressed Air Inlets: The Standard Air Wipe has compressed air inlets on each half. General purpose compressed air 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 with a 5 micron filter element that is sized properly for flow.

Materials of Construction: The Standard Air Wipe is constructed of aluminum. All models use coated screws and plastic shims. General purpose PVC air hose is included with sizes up to 4" (102mm).

Temperature: The Standard Air Wipe is rated for temperatures up to 150°F (66°C).

Mounting: The Standard Air Wipe can be supported by the compressed air supply pipe. Tapped holes (1/4-20) on the downstream side of the Standard 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 Standard Air Wipe has a .002" (0.05mm) gap setting. The compressed air exhausts through a gap which is set with a plastic shim positioned between the cap and body of the Standard Air Wipe. Force and flow through the Standard Air Wipe may be easily increased by adding shims to open the gap. Kits include a shim set (three additional shims). Shim sets include a .001" (0.03mm), .003" (0.08mm) and .004" (0.10mm) thick plastic shim.

How the Standard Air Wipe Works

How the Standard 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.
