Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe™

Ring of ionised airflow clamps around the part! Neutralises and cleans continuous moving surfaces!

The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe is available in a 2” (51mm) and 4” (102mm) diameter.

What Is the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe?

EXAIR’s Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe provides a uniform 360° ionised airstream that is easy to clamp around a part for eliminating static electricity and contaminants. It is ideal for use on pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose, wire and more. It maximises ionised airflow while minimising compressed air consumption.

The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe provides total coverage of the part moving through it. The high volume, high velocity flow attaches itself to the surface and wipes it down with the static eliminating ions. The airflow stays attached to the surface and is effective up to 4.6m (15 feet) away from where the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe is mounted. An optional pressure regulator provides infinite control of the air volume and velocity. Increasing the pressure increases the forceful wiping action. Lower pressures provide excellent coverage with much lower force and velocity.

The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe is the easy way to provide uniform coverage around a continuously moving material. The hinged design, allowing the Air Wipe to open, makes threading continuous wire, tube or extrusions unnecessary. Arranging a series of ionisers around the surface would provide uneven airflow and prove to be costly. The split design of the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe solves that problem by making it easy to clamp around the surface of the material moving through it, eliminating the need for threading or several ionisers.

The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe is lightweight and easy to mount using the tapped holes on the back. It can also be held in place with rigid pipe. Coupling brackets that hold each half of the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe together are provided which can be installed or removed quickly if required.

How the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe Works

The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe incorporates a Super Air Wipe and a split ionising collar, energised by a power supply. Compressed air is ejected through the small ring nozzle of the Gen4 Super Air Wipe at high velocity (1). A conical 360° ring of air is created that induces high volumes of surrounding air (2). The airflow passes through the collar and is ionised by two replaceable emitter points (3). That high velocity, ionised airstream attaches itself to the surface of the material running through the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe (4), uniformly eliminating the static electricity and removing any contaminants from the surface.

Accessories

Gen4 Power Supplies
Exair model 7960 or 7961 Gen4 Power Supply (5 kv) is required for ioniser operation. Selectable voltage: for use with all Gen4 static eliminators

The Two and Four Outlet Gen4 Power Supplies have selectable voltage, which allows you to choose input voltages of 115VAC or 230VAC. The modular cable with electromagnetic shielding protects sensitive electronics against electromagnetic interference while easing connections and routing. An integrated fuse on the primary protects against voltage spikes.

EFC Electronic Flow Control
Turn off the compressed air when it isn’t needed

EXAIR’s EFC™ is a user-friendly electronic flow control for compressed air that is designed to minimise compressed air use on blowoff, drying, cooling, conveying and static elimination operations. The EFC combines a photoelectric sensor with a timing control that limits compressed air use by turning it off when no part is present. The timing control permits easy tuning to the application requirements while providing flexibility in sensing distance.

Filters, Regulators, Valves & More

With proper filtration of dirt, moisture and oil from the compressed air supply, EXAIR compressed air products will operate for years with no maintenance required. Use a 5 micron or smaller filter separator on the compressed air supply. To prevent problems associated with oil, use a 0.03 micron or smaller oil removal filter on the compressed air supply. Pressure regulators permit easy selection of the operating pressure, providing infinite control of flow, force and air consumption.
