What is the Super Air Wipe?

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. Aluminium models are rated for temperatures up to 400°F (204°C) and stainless steel models for temperatures up to 800°F (427°C).

How The Super Air Wipe Works

·
How the Super Air Wipe Works

Compressed air flows through an inlet (1) of the Super 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 Super 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 Super 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.


Why The Super Air Wipe?

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.

Super Air Wipes are available in 10 sizes
The aluminium Super Air Wipe is available in 10 sizes from stock. The stainless steel Super Air Wipe is available in 5 sizes from stock. Other sizes are available by special order.

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. Aluminium 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°F (204°C) to supply the other half. 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°F (427°C). Larger sizes should be piped directly. Tapped holes on the back 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.

Super Air Wipe Specifications

The Super Air Wipe is available with throat diameters (I.D.) of 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 Compressed Air Australia.

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 aluminium or stainless steel. All models use stainless shims and screws. Stainless steel wire braided hose is included with sizes up to 4" (102mm).

Temperature: Aluminium Super Air Wipes are rated for temperatures up to 400°F (204°C). Stainless steel models are rated for temperatures up 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 bottom 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" (.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.
