Super Air Wipe Provides Long-Lasting Solution for Extrusion Blowoff Application

 

The Super Air Wipe has no moving parts to wear out requiring little to no maintenance when supplied with clean, dry compressed air. I recently spoke with a maintenance manager who worked for a company that had been using the same unit for over 7 years. In this application, the Super Air Wipe was used to remove a light coating of oil from the exterior of extruded shapes. Despite showing some obvious signs of wear and tear (and perhaps a little bit of residual oil from the environment), it was still serving the needs of the application as-is.

It may be dirty, but it is still working to remove a light coating of oil from an extrusion!

The Super Air Wipe is available in aluminum construction in sizes ranging from 3/8” – 11” in diameters. All Super Air Wipes comes with stainless steel hardware and stainless steel shims. Sizes up to 4” include a brass tee that supplies one half of the Super Air Wipe while a stainless steel wire braided hose supplies the other side. Sizes over 4” should be piped directly to each ¼ NPT compressed air inlet. In addition to aluminum construction, the Super Air Wipe is also available in 303 stainless steel for corrosive or high temperature applications. The Stainless Steel Super Air Wipe can withstand temperatures up to 800°F and is available in sizes from ½”-4” from stock.

Much like the Super Air Knife, the Super Air Wipe has ¼-20 tapped holes along the downstream side that can be used for mounting. Smaller Super Air Wipes can be supported by rigid compressed air pipe that is used to supply the air into the product. The Super Air Wipe is also infinitely adjustable through the use of shim sets or a pressure regulator. Kits will include the Super Air Wipe, shim set to make gross adjustments to the airflow, an auto-drain filter to keep the air clean and dry, and a pressure regulator. By adjusting the input supply pressure to the Super Air Wipe, you regulate both the force and flow that is projected onto the target material. Increasing the input supply pressure will increase both the force and flow from the Super Air Wipe.

If you’re processing any type of hose, wire, or extruded shapes that could benefit from installing a Super Air Wipe give us a call. With all sizes shipping from stock on an order received by 2:00 pm ET we can have one to you as early as tomorrow!
