If you’ve ever used an air gun to blow something off, you’re familiar with the cleaning ability of compressed air. If you can get the whole object blown off from where you’re standing, there really is no substitute…but what if you need to get to the other side…or sides?
This is where the EXAIR Super Air Wipe comes in…they allow you to blow a continuous, uniform 360° air stream, all around your product. Consider their benefits:
*Sizes: the Super Air Wipe’s compact ring design means it won’t take up a lot of room; you just need a few inches, in any direction, to install one. We stock them in eleven sizes, from 11″, all the way down to our brand-new 3/8″ diameter.
*Durability: All EXAIR Super Air Wipes are assembled with stainless steel shims and hardware. Models up to 4″ come with a rugged, stainless steel wire braided hose, connecting the two halves for compressed air supply.
*Ease of installation: Smaller sizes can be supported by the compressed air supply line, if a pipe is used and threaded into the connector hose’s 1/4 NPT port. Larger sizes can likewise be adequately supported with pipe to both halves. All models have a bolt circle of 1/4″-20 tapped holes for more permanent and rigid mounting. The split ring design is another key feature:
*Corrosion resistance: Depending on the environment in which the Super Air Wipe will be installed, we offer them with aluminum (3/8″ – 11″ sizes) or stainless steel (3/8″ – 4″ sizes) bodies.
*Temperature rating: Aluminum Super Air Wipes are good to 400°F (204°C) and stainless steel models are good to 800°F (427°C.)
*Range of operation: We install a 0.002″ thick shim in all stock Super Air Wipes; this is suitable for a wide range of typical industrial/commercial blow off applications…a Pressure Regulator can then be used to “dial in” the air flow precisely to meet specific needs. If a job calls for higher force & flow, additional 0.002″ shims can be installed. Shim Sets come with the Super Air Wipe Kits, or individual shims can be ordered separately.
*Performance: Before the Super Air Wipe, a ring of nozzles was commonly used. In fact, they still are, but we’re trying to fix that, at every opportunity we come across. Problem with those is, it’s hard to get an even air flow all around, which leads to inconsistent blow off. They can also be loud & inefficient, as we’ve found in numerous Efficiency Lab tests and Case Studies, like this one…
…and this one…
