On a Standard Air Wipe, compressed air exhausts through a gap which is set with a shim positioned between the cap and the body. 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. Shim Sets include (2) each of a .001" (0.03mm), a .003" (0.08mm), and a .004" (0.10mm) thick shim. Shim sets are included with all kits or may be purchased separately.

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.

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.

Efficiency Lab

Does your company currently use a blowoff product similar to EXAIR’s that you’d like us to evaluate? Ship it to the EXAIR Efficiency Lab! Our qualified staff will test it for FREE, using EXAIR’s calibrated testing equipment. We’ll compare the performance of your existing product (air consumption, effectiveness, noise levels, efficiencies, etc) with the EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air® products. The results will be published in a comprehensive report that includes a cost savings analysis. For most applications, EXAIR products can help you improve your efficiency AND typically pay for themselves in a matter of weeks.

To participate in our Efficiency Lab testing, please complete this Product Efficiency Survey to give us the details about your current application and blowoff set up. If you have any questions, feel free to contact an Application Engineer at (800) 903-9247 or (513) 671-3322 or techelp@exair.com.

If you have questions about a product or you need help in determining the best model for your application, fill out our Application Assistance Worksheet!
